    I second the tootsie roll comment. It's a pretty decent drink though.

    I thought that the 3 stars couldn't be right, then I mixed this up and I'm sorry but it was vile. I added 1/2 oz. Cointreau which made it a 2 star, but not worth repeating. Again, sorry, but this just ain't worth drinking.

    The linked reference specs Clement Première Canne, a blanc.

    Is it blanc or aged agricole? Will definitely have an impact on the finished drink.

    surprisingly a bit too sweet for me

    In the same neighborhood as the DeGrassi.

    Curated to add to note that the original called for a cherry garnish.

    Salers isn't available in my part of the world, but I can report this works well with Suze. I'm with Mojo; this is light, summery and very drinkable.

    For Craig E, or anyone else who has wondered about the pronunciation of this cocktail's name, watch this:

    Tastes like a more floral, less savory wet martini to me.

    Made stirred with Makers Mark and worked well. Added a dash of cherry vanilla bitters which rounded it out nicely

    Curated to remove direct wording from source to avoid copyright infringement, and to fix a couple of errors in the ingredient list.

    I just tried this one and I really enjoyed it! I used aquafaba instead of the egg white (as suggested in the note), which gave the drink a little hint of savory nuttyness. I took the advice of another commenter and upped the Amargo a touch and went a light on the falernum, which I think was a good choice. I also replaced the Trinidad rum with an ounce of Barbados rum (Mount Gay) and a quarter-ounce of a dunder-heavy Jamaican pot still rum (Dr Bird). It all came together to make one of the strangest cocktails I've ever built — but in a good way! Rich, creamy, nutty, funky, and surprisingly well balanced. Big thumbs up from me!

    10/06/18 Excellent, the interaction between DOM and YChartreuse is interesting.

    Good with Maker's 46.

  • Reply to: Apparent Sour   by   2 months 2 weeks ago

    I used my usual sour ratios and made it less sweet and, to my palate, more delicious .


    2oz Aperol

    1oz Lime juice

    .5oz St Germain

    I was out of Smith & Cross and so used Lemonhart 151 and I used King's Ginger. Loooong shake. Very good, although the Chartreuse dominated a bit. I might fudge the ratio, with more ginger and less Chartreuse.

    Lightly curated: paraphrased instructions to fix copyright infringement, added a little history and changed name to reflect origin more clearly.

    PDT makes this with only a quarter ounce of Bénédictine. I find a half ounce to be a happy medium.

  • Reply to: Private Club Cocktail   by   2 months 3 weeks ago

    I took the lemon down to a third and the maple up to a third. Solid improvement. (I also used some smoked maple syrup that I had.)

    Subbed Taneda for Avese and it was fabulous!

  • Reply to: Meadowlands   by   2 months 3 weeks ago

    One of those drinks that looked better on paper than it turned out to be.  In all fairness, it wasn't awful, but it was overly sweet and somewhat syrupy.  Furthermore, I don't the apricot liqueur works here - even at 1/4 of an ounce it's overly strong and really seems to stick out a bit.  It might be interesting to try this one again by subbing in a ginger liqueur instead.

    Curated from Adams' to Adam's, since we assume that is what was intended.
