AdOrAdam - I really do not know my Cognacs. They are unexplored territory for me, so I don't have any recommendations. Corvarsier maybe - Think I butchered the spelling.

The Earthquake is always served neat, whether it is chilled, stirred and strained or just straight up. I like them chilled for sure.

I think Remy would be your best bet of on hand booze.

I usually have a few Absinthes on hand. I like Lucid, Vieux Pontarlier and even Mansinthe. The Absinthes that have the most flavor and spice are the ones I tend to purchase.

Then you have the entire world of Armagnac, if I recall the distillation process is different as well as being in a different region, which offers different flavors and possible health benefits over Cognac.

Always weird that the drink can be made with brandy but it still retains the rye brand name for the drink...




I think there was once a Sazerac brand of cognac, and a Sazerac Cafe in Nawlins where the drink was popularized...

Yep, and it's hot as balls out. So unless you want to drink it on the rocks like a cretin, you may want to wait until it's a bit cooler out.

Yep, Sazerac was the name of the cognac (Sazerac-de-Forge et Fils) as well as the establishment (Sazerac Coffee House) where the cocktail was invented, circa 1850. It was a combination of cognac, absinthe, sugar and Peychaud's bitters (the anise-flavored kind made down the street by Creole apothecary Antoine Amadie Peychaud).

When cognac became hard to get -- due to the Phylloxera outbreak of the late 1870s and '80s -- they replaced the brandy with rye whiskey. When absinthe was outlawed in the U.S. in 1912, it was replaced with locally-produced pastis Herbsaint. ("Herb Sainte" was what they called wormwood in New Orleans.)

As a historical footnote, the bar was eventually taken over by Thomas Handy -- this is why one of the rye whiskeys in Buffalo Trace's Antique Collection is named after Handy. (The other is Sazerac.) Handy is supposedly the one who gave the recipe for the Sazerac to William T. Boothby, who first published it in his book The World's Drinks and How to Mix Them (1908).

If you're looking for a good cognac that's not too expensive and not too hard to find, I highly recommend the Pierre Ferrand line. They even make one expression (the 1840 Original Formula) that is intended to use in cocktails.

I'll just make a scotch tiki drink:

Smokin Tiki -

1 oz scotch - I used Glendronach cause that's what I had
1/2 oz lemon
1/2 oz orgeat - I used small hand foods
1/2 oz white grapefruit

Garnish with 2 dashes of orange bitters


Happy National Scotch day!

AdOrAdam - actually Stone brewing company just opened a brewery in Brazil or they are working to open it now. You might get to try it in a few months. Stone is a real west coast company, so they make really hoppy IPAs.

I'm not aware about a Stone brewery for Brazil but they are making plans to open one in Berlin! This would make Stone the first craft brewer from the U.S. to open a brewery in Europe.

They currently have a fund raiser on indiegogo:

I'll keep an eye out for the beers, cheers guys

Although, brown spirits rule in my house:



Rye is hard to come by in bars in the UK (but available online) so you rarely get to 'try before you buy' - any suggestions for reasonably priced ones beyond Rittenhouse & Pikesville?

Good old Old Overholt is an unpretentious rye but clearly a rye, and for a long time it was the only game in town. Sazarac 6 is usually not too expensive if you can find it. On the pricier end, I think Masterson's 10 year rye is excellent with it's 100% rye grain bill.
