    Very good with ramazotti,  dolin, and Chartreuse rinse

    Tried many times but with different ratio, well shaken and served on rocks and liked it:

    1 3/4 Smith, 1 oz lime, 1/3 elderflower, 1/4 orgeat, 1/2 Cynar

    The state of Oregon sells Weller 12 for $29 if you can win the lottery to buy it... Thanks,  Zachary

    I like this with an alteration to the vermouth. I use .25oz chipotle infused vermouth and .5 regular. Gives it a suble nice spice to it. You can also add a spray of Laphroaig10yr to it to top it off.

    Yes, that's it, cilantro...

  • Reply to: Easy Replenisher   by   2 months 1 week ago

    6 muddled sprigs of coriander (cilantro in USA) ?

    Very sweet as written. I upped the scotch to 2 oz (Bowmore Legend). I also erred and doubled the Chartreuse. Probably best as written. I'm not sure what the last bitters is though. I could not taste one drop of celery bitters.

    Total Wine still lists Weller Antique for $19.99 and BevMo for $29.99.  Good luck finding it for that price except in the hidden gems of local liquor stores that have a large/eclectic stock: demand for 'Poor Man's Pappy' is high.

    Where did you find Weller for under $30? I just saw the Antique for $50.

    Dan Sabo's recipe that won PUNCH's blind-tasting whiskey sour competition is

    • 2 oz Rittenhouse
    • 1 oz lemon juice
    • 1/2 oz orange juice
    • 1/2 oz rich simple
    • egg white
    • garnish with 1/2 slice orange and brandied cherry

    11/02/18 - Fine martini riff, might either up the Genepi or substitute Chartreuse.

    Meehan's Bartender Manual (p. 363) specs the vermouth as Vya sweet (and suggests Cocchi Vermouth di Torino as a good option) and Luxardo maraschino.

    A bit too strong for me.

  • Reply to: Meatpacker   by   2 months 3 weeks ago

    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.

  • Reply to: Up Jumped the Devil   by   2 months 3 weeks ago

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

  • Reply to: White Dahlia   by   2 months 4 weeks ago

    surprisingly a bit too sweet for me

  • Reply to: Up Jumped the Devil   by   2 months 4 weeks ago

    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: https://youtu.be/ZNmbHl7wUJs

    Also known as Angostura Fizz

  • Reply to: Foreign Key   by   3 months 6 days ago

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

  • Reply to: Harlan County   by   3 months 1 week ago

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