any suggestions for reasonably priced ones beyond Rittenhouse & Pikesville?



I'm not a big whiskey or rye fan, but if I get either than its Bulleit. Classy and not too expensive.

Tortuga, Remixed version.

This one is a strange bird with non-Tiki ingredients like cream de cacao and sweet vermouth alongside the more Tiki-traditional rums and juices. Once a year or so I shake one of these up and I always reach the same conclusion: doesn't quite come together to do it for me and probably not worth the ounce of Lemon Hart 151 it calls for.

Packs a punch though!

Old Overholt, Baby Saz & Bulleit Rye are all already on & have now move up my wish list - thanks all

Perhaps my favourite neat sipping bourbon is being challenged by Rittenhouse 100 (I had some after the Sazerac the other day) so I'm revisiting it:



I don't think I could pick between the two!

I'm saving the Earthquake Luna recommends for the weekend

One of my all time favorites: "The Reverb Crash". I skip the white rum and use 2 oz. of Appleton VX. Sometimes, I use 1 oz of Appleton VX and 1 oz of Kohala Bay. It is just a most refreshing drink after a hard day's work.

Love the Reverb Crash!

Drinking a Steve Crane Molokai Mule (Remixed version), which is basically a scaled-down Vic Scorpion Bowl with Demerara rum, lime instead of lemon, and the ingredient proportions slightly tweaked. Actually, this is a much more balanced drink than the TV Scorpion. Hitting the spot just now for sure.

Party Time Steve! That New Belgium kreik looks interesting, how is it?

Enjoying a Q.B. Cooler (Remixed version) now. I liked the Grog Log version but this version is better. Homemade falernum and Jamaican ginger beer syrup working well in this.

Before I was a Tiki guy, I was a beer guy, and I made it a point to never drink the same beer twice. New Belgium's Lips of Faith series has consistently produced an interesting brew, and I have tried each one that I have come across. This one is a Kriek, which is a Lambic brewed with cherries. It is a little sweet and a little sour, and it drinks like a thick soda. I do believe that the base is a little too much like a Geuze, and is a little too bitter/sour when compared to the leading Lambics. All that being said, if you are trying all sorts of different cocktails, then you should add the more interesting beers to your list, as well. Especially when you can find a deep red beer with a pink foam head.

DO you make your own Ginger Syrup? Which recipe do you use?

Much like you, I started out as a serious beer geek who expanded into Tiki and then into classic and craft cocktails. Guezue is one if my favorite beer styles and I like the fruit lambics that skew toward the sour/lactic side. We just started getting New Belgium products in Flirida this past year so hopefully we will see some of the limited release stuff soon.

Ginger syrup. . . Have done homemade in the past with basically a demerara simple syrup with a couple of inches of juliened ginger root steeped in the pot. Now I usually use a commercial Jamaican ginger beer syrup concentrate called "Sir Henry of Morgan's Valley" where ginger syrup is called for. I get it at a Caribbean grocer. It makes a very good ginger beer at 1 part syrup to 5 parts soda.

Now enjoying a Mai-Kai Barrel 'O Rum mixed up old-style courtesy of Swanky with half the juice allotment as the version currently served at Mai-Kai. Much more of a rum barrel and less of a juice barrel done this way.

The Missus has been on a Royal Hawaiian Mai Tai kick lately. I have also had to dial back the grenadine to give them some sort of balance.

Old Overholt Rye Manhattan to wind down with. Tasty.
