So look… this doesn't work in Oregon. The best thing to do here is to keep an eye on the Next Month Price Change list, and find things that you want that are going way down in price. Most recently, this was the infamous Laphroaig 10 for $20.25, but about a year ago, A. de Fussigny Tres Vielle Cognac dropped from $220 to $100 a bottle, and if you know that it’s a 50 year old Cognac that hasn’t been made in 10-15 years… well, let’s just say it was worth the drive to Eugene to pick up two bottles.
It also doesn’t work in Washington, which is too new at the private liquor sales game to have dusty old bottles lying around. There’s a lot of clean, bright new liquor stores and some helpful people, but taxes being what they are up there… I’d just avoid wasting a lot of time looking in Washington for liquor.
The first sip or two is tasty, but ultimately I found the drink too sweet. Even though PKNY listed it in the Mai Tai section of its menu (I'm guessing because of the agricole), the lack of Curaçao makes it a lot closer to a Daiquiri. The spec, then, only has 1.5 oz of r(h)um to 1 oz of syrup, making it proportionally almost twice as sweet as a traditional Daiq, which would typically have 2 oz of rum and just .75 oz of sugar. I personally would not make again.
