Last night's drinks:
#1 - Pisco Sour at the Punch Room. The stem on that glass is about 7" long and the bowl is about 4" across. Fancy!


#2 - Apple of My Eye at the Punch Room. This drink is intended for two people. I was alone. Yes, I drank the whole thing. It changes colors over time as the dried flowers on the surface rehydrate and infuse their color into the drink. It starts out this gorgeous amber color and is deep red by the time it's done.


#3 - Callaloo Cooler at home in the limited edition of the Kuhiko mug from Smuggler's Cove.


Last night was a good night of drinking!

That's a very nice effect! There are so many good garnishes and practices at the places we all go to... Sadly we can only adopt a limited number in our home bars.

I make a drink where I step outside, use a creme brulee tourch to light a small pile of apple wood chips on a 4" small iron pan, then place a Double Old-Fashioned glass over the top to smother the flames. This puts a nice smoky background into the glass. Can't remember where I learned that, but it is very unique and memorable when I have guests over and make it.

Made a few drinks last night after a bit of a hiatus:

- Expedition x2
- Sumatra Kula
- 8th of the 8th (home recipe)
- Sidewinders Fang
- Steve Crane Jet Pilot
- Boulevardier (with added Hellfire Shrub)
- Knob Creek Rye Old Fashioned

For me the drinks of the night were the Expeditions:

Being short of Bittermens coffee liqueur, I used 1/4oz Tia Maria & 1/4oz Angostura bitters as a sub - even if it's not what was called for, it turned out well!

I used Coruba & Buffalo Trace. I'm not usually a fan of bourbon & rum together in drinks but I'd go so far as to say this is the best I've tried - well worth checking out

I'm on my second Corpse Reviver #2. Sorry, no photo, cuz I'm drinking it without garnish while doing boring paperwork.... It's just a light yellow-colored drink in a martini glass. BUT...

I made two of these last night with Lillet Blanc per the original recipe, and Grand Marnier instead of Cointreau and they sucked.

Tonight I substituted the Lillet with Cocchi Americano and used Cointreau and the angels sang! This is important because Lillet Blanc has been "updated" to "more modern tastes" within the last 10 years or so, and it is no longer authentic tasting because they have dialed back (or eliminated) the quinine component. The Cocchi Americano is an aperitif and it comes very close to the original Lillet Blanc flavor profile and is therefore a better ingredient for the Corpse Reviver #2 than the modernized Lillet. Fans of the "Vesper" cocktail should take note.

The updated Lillet Blanc does taste good though, so no complaints there, but it's no longer suitable for classic/historic cocktail recipes.

Here's the Corpse Reviver #2 recipe I used, and I don't remember where I got the recipe.

Cheers!

CORPSE REVIVER #2

1 oz gin -- I used Bombay Sapphire specifically because its a bit sweeter than other London dry gins.

1 oz fresh lemon juice.

1 oz Cointreau

1 oz Lillet Blanc (better: Use Cocchi Americano because of its resemblance to the older version of Lillet Blanc before they took out the quinine.)

Orange peel as garnish.

Shake with ice, strain, serve in cocktail glass of your choice. (Martini, coupe, or DOF glass)

I am a lucky dude. My friend has decided to let me experience the difference between the current ZACAPA 23 and the one prior to the Solara. OMG nowhere near the same. I will travel the world to find a stash of this!
