commented on Dirty Mexican Martini :

@yedmundi I appreciate your feedback, however, where you are incorrect is that though all tequilas are made from agave, some of it blue, if it does not say 100% Puro De Agave, on the label, the law allows for the tequila to be blended with up to 49% neutral grain (distiller clear) spirits...aka cheaper filler like vodka or white whiskey.... 100% Puro de Agave means it is all tequila in the bottle, whether it comes from the famous Jalisco, Mexico region or not.. That's why it tends to cost more. It is also why you will see the less expensive brands or varieties say Made "with" blue agave or made with 100% Agave. The key is the word "with" instead of "of". These other "tequilas" contain enough tequila to be legally called tequila, but they are of a lesser quality. Obviously tequila is made from the agave plant, but the liquid in the bottle is not always 100% distilled agave based spirit. You will also notice that my comment had South of the Border in quotes, which is to imply that the drink had a base liquor from Mexico. I've never had tequila made in Austin, TX, however Tito's Vodka from Texas is amazing. Cheers!

I haven't seen one of these since last year. I applaud the real Luxardo Maraschino Cherries.

I love Tito’s, it just hard to find out here in the sticks. NH liquor stores started selling it but they are a tad pricey at $25 for 750ml. I also like the Goose and when it’s on sale I stock up. I have tried and like Reyka. I need to try Russian Standard. I’ll put that on the shopping list.

Have you tried Svedka vokda? Thoughts? For the price I liked it.

I'm not sure what's up with my pics... they present correctly on my laptop but get placed sideways on the site. It's something with exif on the JPGs but I can't figure it out, b/c the rum punch picture did come out right in a slew of sideways shots(the positioning of the ice block is how I know). It's frustrating...

I'm a fan of the old school classic cocktails, and drinks that hearken from the golden age of the cocktail -- '20s to mid-'60s. The first time I made the El Presidente it was better than the one recounted here. Sadly, tonight, I'm just drinking coffee, looking for a recipe for tomorrow night.

Thanks for the background on "Steam." I was wondering about that. So cool... but speaking of cool, your Cragganmore story is really great. That must have been a very cool experience!

Thanks, Bartender. I think another Manhattan may be in my future this evening as well.

Hey, thanks for your wall comment! RE Harpoon Chocolate Stout: It probably is a better dessert stout. It's not too heavy, and quite drinkable but I had one before dinner one night and it didn't feel right. Liked it as a middle of the afternoon beer though.

Howdy Bartender! I edited the Carribean Apple with info about the Rum I used. It's called Trigo Reserva Aneja and here's a link to what I found about it online (not much): http://www.examiner.com/rum-in-national/trigo-reserva-aneja-rum-from-puerto-rico But it's a nice rum! Perhaps a biz opp to do their site ;).

Thanks for the background on the three beans. I can totally see it enhancing the flavor of the anise to chew them... I remember hanging around a store that my family owned when I was a kid, and there was a bottle of Anisette that we busted out for the old timers, the locals and the folks in the know to add a bit to the coffee.
