1. a shot of Matusalem Gran Reserva 15-yr-old. never noticed this before, but the finish also tastes like mamey.

2. I wanted a falernum drink, and for some reason i thought it would be cool to sub falernum for vermouth in a rye manhattan. i was a little short on rye so i rounded out the booze with some bushmill's. then added a few drops of lemon bitters to the surface of the drink. it tastes a lot like a mint julep somehow...

3. my 2d-to-last of the leftover Christmas beers... a Widmer Bros BRRR ale...

Last night in the lab with a group of sad, sober friends:

1) The Last Word, two rounds.
2) Aviation Cocktail using the Aviation web site recipe, two rounds. There are many variations of this, including one in the Savoy Cocktail Book which I will try soon. It's hard to tell what a "real" Aviation is...
3) We tasted "Only" gin which has one several gold and silver awards over the past few years.

Sobriety was alleviated to a nice degree, and the tastings went well.

I have a hard time with folks who:
1) are very prejudiced against certain ingredients and spirits before they even try it.
2) take one sip and pronounce judgment on a cocktail without a few more sips which would allow flavors to develop on the palate. Grrrrrr...

sorry to hear your friends were sad, was it a wake?

re Aviations, there are lots of variations. the mistake i've made when mixing this for non-craftophiles is using a formula with too much lemon...

Nope, I guess I wasn't clear... I meant they were sober, therefore sad. My cocktail connivings livened things up quickly!

Thanks for the info on the Aviations with too much lemon. It's gonna be interesting to try other variations and see how they compare.

I've experimented with the Aviation almost as much as the MaiTai. here are the variations I've settled on as my preferred recipes:

(if no creme de violette): 2 oz London dry gin; 1/2 oz maraschino liqueur; 1/4 oz lemon juice. cherry garnish. optional-- 1/4 oz simple syrup. as mentioned, i think too much lemon makes this drink too sour; some folks though simply won't like the funk of the maraschino no matter what. tell them the drink name derives from its tasting like a jet fuel that only the manliest can tolerate...

(if creme de violette): 1.5 oz London dry gin; 1/2 oz each of maraschino liqueur, lemon, and creme de violette. cherry garnish. i find this perfectly balanced. tell these folks the drink name derives from its hue that combines sky blue and smoke.

in any event, tell everyone this drink is a WWI cocktail created by French barmaids for American fighter pilots in the Escadrille Lafayette ...

Very cool, thanks, I'll try those and let you know what I find. It is an interesting and unusual drink, the violette is supposed to give it a nice color, but mine ended up blue-gray with meticulous measuring. And you're also right -- Luxardo cherry does have a funk which causes me and others to sort of cock my head to the side in some drinks. It's definitely not what you expect. Might be fun to try cherry Heering as a sub, but then it wouldn't be a real Aviation, would it?

Agreed. There needs to be a Like button on these posts.


EDIT: Just noticed there is a FB Like button at the bottom of these posts. What the hell does that do?
