    Used Suze, Mulassano dry vermouth. Very good. Mild. Nice low proof cocktail.  I really think it tastes what a high quality bianco vermouth should taste.

    Is the "chartreuse" specified here Green Chartreuse?

    Quite good. Surprisingly sweet. Made with Cocchi vermouth, Massenez Creme de Peche, Maison Rouge VSOP cognac

    The recipe version I use is a bit more ginger forward. It involves putting some fresh ginger while making the honey syrup. It also involves muddling a bit of fresh ginger in the bottom of the shaker. It also involves no ginger juice not even sure what that is).  Also, as I am not a fan of a lot of peat, I prefer to float with something more of a Speyside or Highland sort.  It's a very good cocktail.

    Made this with Jameson IPA Cask, King's Ginger, and 0.4 oz date syrup. Probably a bit different but delicious.

    It seems that Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book called for serving some sours at room temperature.  The Pequod Sour, which adds mint to an egg-less whiskey sour is pretty tasty.

    Once I found the recipe for this, I adjusted from my original variation of 1 oz. Rye, 1 oz Cocchi Americano, 1 oz. Braulio, which Dan is referring to in his comment.

    This is by far the best use of Parfait Amour I’ve had.

    Taste mostly Cognac. Very dry.

    Only for Cognac lovers or dry stuff.

    Had no Rye. Tried with Bourbon. Very Nice and interesting. I understand why Rye is called in the mix.

    Kind of boulevardier,  but spicier.

    Will try soon with Rye.

    4 stars.

    Really liked this. Made with Ango, Vermut Lustau (so maybe technically a Greco Spanish Piccadilly?), Tanqueray 10 and halved the Ouzo to taste. A complex, cold, strong gin cocktail.

    Made with reduced tonic syrup, Cointreau blood orange, orange bitters and grapefruit twist. Delicious.

    Excellent, deep bitter marmalade flavour

  • Reply to: Sun King   by   4 months 1 week ago

    Added 3/4 lemon, and used instead of Chambord a fat 1/2 oz of premixed fortified syrup made of pomegranate juice, raspberry cordial, Cherry and cassis liqueur: The Sun King turned in a very fine sour. Shaken.

    5 Stars !

    You should try

    Transatlantic rum 2014 Fidji, Bombay, green izarra, Cocchi torino, peychaud. Very different from the original recipe, sweeter, intense rum forward without too much funk. Subtility disappear. Much more interesting to stick to orignal.

    Tried with Overproof Bourbon 129 proof... Much better. Less flat than comon proof Bourbon.
