First #cocktail of the weekend, one of my absolute favorites: the Old Cuban.

6 mint leaves
3/4 oz lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
1 1/2 oz aged rum
2 oz champagne*

*As is my custom, I use a dry hard cider (in this case Nine Pin's Signature) in place of the champagne.

Cocktail for tonight's weekly cocktail. Jen already approves and started sipping the pour I planned for her before it was fully served.

Based on Cocktail Contessa's Bourbon Limoncello Cocktail:

My variation includes homemade limoncello - this is my older batch so probably done by Jeremy Morgenthaler's method (zest-based infusion).

- 1/2 oz Meyer Lemon juice (adjust downward if using Lisbon or other lemons)
- 1/2 oz limoncello
- 1/2 oz generic apricot liqueur
- 1/2 oz Rosemary infused maple syrup (see: Entirely Elizabeth for this method -
- 1 to 1 1/2 oz Rye
- 2 dashes Miracle Mile Yuzu Bitters (or any tart citrus based bitters)
- 2 dashes Bitter Truth Creole Bitters

Put all ingredients in shaker. Shake the absolute shit out of it until your fingers are frozen. Decant into a double old-fashioned or similar glass, filled with ice. Add water if desired. It can really open up the flavors and aromas.

The NYT has a piece on the #RobRoy #Cocktail today, one of my personal faves. Eric Kim mentions that the drink was invented at the Waldorf=Astoria, which is true, though not the one you're probably thinking about.

I wrote a little piece on the drink a few years ago, with some meandering through other topics, like Walter Scott and Beethoven. Eventually, I got around to the drink.

If you ever wondered about the "equals sign" in Waldorf=Astoria, I get to that too.

I had no idea was World Cocktail day. I had intentions of meeting up with some out of town friends for drinks. Maybe I'll have to sub the glass or two of wine I was thinking of for a cocktail, but probably not an Old Fashioned. That said, I didn't realize until this video that the term "cock tail" goes back to early 1800s and the predecessor to the Old Fashioned could be found at least as far back as this 1862 recipe. #history #FoodHistory #cocktail #alcohol #WorldCocktailDay

#Cocktail Hour! Little Italy, by Audrey Saunders. One of our favorites, which we put in our “New York Cocktails” pages in our black book along with the drinks named after NYC boroughs and neighborhoods.

2 oz rye whiskey (preferably Rittenhouse)
3/4 oz sweet vermouth (we used Foro di Torino)
1/2 oz Cynar (we used Cynar 70 because we’re naughty)

Stir & strain. Garnish with Luxardo cherries skewered on a pick. (Remember that even numbers of garnishes are bad luck.)

Two beautiful cocktails as described above.

@gregeganSF Greg, I am glad your misconception about allspice never came up in any of your books because it would have been shattering. I give a lot of leeway for speculative technology, but for a well known spices? Um….

It is weirdly psycho coincidental (like so much is) that I happened to be thinking about allspice today. I found a #cocktail recipe that calls for allspice liquor. I am now officially on safari for this ingredient.

Yes, we have the bowl and the straws for the scorpion bowl, that's how dedicated we are. And we don't use a sour mix just real orange and pineapple juice. Add dark rum, white rum, triple sec, vodka, and gin and you have yourself a good end of weekend drink. Only non-authentic part is we can no longer get 151 rum for the middle so we use an overproof rum that's "only" 138 proof. Whatever you do, don't let them light it when you get it in the restaurant!

Ok, so I think I've mixed a pretty good cocktail based on Billion Brands' Gin Leblanc. It's based on the Ramos Gin Fizz, but I tweaked it a little:

- 3 once Gin Leblanc
- 1/2 once lemon juice
- 1/2 once cream 10% (or any heavy cream)
- 1 egg white

Mix in shaker with NO ice. Shake it around 20 seconds.
Then, add ice. Shake it another 20-30 seconds.
Pour into a nice glass.

There will be some leftover cocktail in the shaker. Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and there shake the rest. Pour it on top of your current cocktail.

You can drink it like it, it tastes like a fancy vanilla-lemon-lime yogurt.

Or you can add 1 to 2 onces of 7up: now it tastes like a milkshake!

Weeeeeeeeeee! Enjoy :)

Grab the Gin Leblanc at la SAQ in the Quebec province.

Of course, to be drank in moderation 😉 😘

I thought I had picked up Calvados last year, but realizing I opted for this Laird's Apple 'Brandy' (not Applejack) offering and a bottle of Armagnac. The Laird's is still whiskyish so went with the splash of bourbon - may try the armagnac in the next #cocktail because yes, I fully intend to have another!

So, when I ask #ChatGPT for #cocktail recipes, and poke at it a bit to accommodate my wishes (in this case, something with pear liqueur, not too sweet, and with no sparkling wine), I think it starts to make up new ones. The screen shot shows a recipe for the "Poire Cardinale" a cocktail that doesn't exist, according to my Google search.

Screenshot of Recipe:
The Poire Cardinale
• 1.5 oz gin
•0.5 oz pear liqueur
• 0.5 oz dry vermouth
•1 dash orange bitters
Orange peel, for garnish
1. Fill a mixing glass with ice.
2. Add the gin, pear liqueur, dry vermouth, and orange bitters.
3. Stir well for about 20 seconds.
4. Strain the mixture into a chilled coupe glass.
5. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.

In honor of the debut of the final season of #StarTrekPicard our friend Louis Anderman of Miracle Míle Bitters created a new #cocktail: The Gin-Luc Picard.

2 oz Citadelle French gin (or London dry)
3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz Earl Grey honey syrup*
2d Chartreuse Végétal (aka Élixir Végétal)
2d Miracle Mile Bergamot Bitters

Shake the first four ingredients with ice and strain into a coupe. Top with bergamot bitters.

My favourite #cocktail: The earl grey MarTEAni.

* 45ml/1.5oz earl grey infused gin
* 22ml/.75oz lemon juice
* 22ml/.75oz simple syrup
* 1 egg white

Add ingredients to tin, dry shake, add ice to tin, shake, strain into glass, garnish with lemon peel.

For the earl grey infused gin:

* Add 60ml loose leaf earl grey to a 750ml bottle of london dry gin.
* Let sit for 2 hours.
* Strain into other container with a cheese cloth or similar.
* Strain back into original bottle.


It's time for another time to ask all of you what your favourite #cocktail is!

So, what is your favourite drink? Even better if you add the recipe!

I will put mine in a reply!
