"The Last Word" on this Christmas day.

It's not tiki, but it is a prohibition-era classic which is quick and easy, and tasty, and can be enjoyed anytime. Give it a moment to "develop" on your palate, then take second and third sips to experience an "aha" moment. Interesting, and good. An example of what quality ingredients can do in surprisingly simple ratios.

.75 oz / 20 ml Tanqueray TEN
.75 oz / 20 ml Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
.75 oz / 20 ml Green Chartreuse
.75 oz / 20 ml Fresh Lime Juice

Fill shaker with ice, add ingredients, shake and double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass. A Nick & Nora glass looks good with this cocktail. Garnish with a half lime wheel - it should be kinda subtle.

[edited to add "chilled" to the glass description]

AceExplorer, Have been debating whether I should get the green Chartreuse or not, there is a middle size one at Gelson's markets, not cheap.
This is my Christmas-ish drink from last week.



Eggnog with Havana Club 7 with nutmeg on top.

it is time to commence my annual Eggnog Trials.

I will be sampling 'Nog mixed alternately with rum, whiskey, and brandy. I have no spiced rum on hand this year, so will use Cruzan Blackstrap; the whiskey will be Ireland's Tullamore Dew; the brandy = some cheapie stuff i have on hand. I will report back from the lab later...

Hey Kraken, tanks for posting the ingredients-sounds like a good beverage. I have had a bottle of Crystal head sitting around for a year or so that I have never opened.
I bought it cuz the bottle was so cool. /time to bust it open.
Later

The Lei Low in Houston is having a Don The Beachcomber themed New Years party so figured I'd get a head start on the festivities by working my way though Arriano's "1950s Cocktail Recipes of Don the Beachcomber" book.

First up... Barbados Punch



Next we have... Barbados Swizzle



More to come...

If you're in or near Houston, here's the event details:

It's funny: for ages that was EXACTLY my go-to mai tai recipe (Appleton Estate Extra 12 year with El Dorado 12 year, as well as the Senior curacao) but I think using Smith & Cross with Appleton Estate, coupled with Pierre Ferrand curacao, permanently broke my tasting brain - now I don't enjoy that combo anywhere near as much. I've really come to love a tart, dry mai tai with the astringency of the Smith & Cross poking through.

Zombie and Mai Tai


Black Magic


Mutiny


Martinique Milk Punch


Cobra Kiss and Special Planter's Punch
