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.
Good, balanced (sweet/sour) and probably a go-to if one is looking for a citrus modified Pasubio drink, but I have half a dozen Pasubio cocktails I prefer to this one, including at least one of my own. The lemon juice somewhat subdues the character of the Pasubio.
An alpine flavored Tiki drink that surprisingly works. A solid 3.5, but I can't quite go 4 so I am rating it a 3. To be fair, I used 1/2 oz of pineapple juice and 1/2 oz of simple syrup (should have used my gomme syrup instead) to simulate the "pineapple gum syrup" flavors while balancing sugar vs. the lime from my tree, so mouthfeel could be a little off. The pine and alpine herbal notes provide playful contrast to the pineapple/citrus. If you have Braulio and Zirbenz, try it.
