Itís so pretty! You should name it something lovely and summery.

Such fluffy egg white!

Itís called a Save me the Waltz, which I rather enjoy as a name... almost as much as the drink!

That is lovely and summery, even if by accident. How fortuitous! Gin drinks are a win for the summer, for sure.

Lately I've been really into amaretto + ginger ale + lime. I should really give the drink a name, it's amazing.

This recipe is the best frozen cocktail Iíve ever had. Not a trashy syrupy beach drink, not too sweet, perfect for summer. You can batch the mix in the freezer and then just blend with ice on demand. Itís amazing. https://www.seriouseats.com/2016/07/frozen-gin-and-tonic-blender-summer-drink-cocktail.html

I tell you what, you guys can have your mixed drinks. La Trappe Quadrupel is my drink of choice tonight, and it is absolutely delicious.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

A Dash of Green Chartreuse
Half a Dash of Angostura Bitters
Half a Dash of Peychaudís Bitters
1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Old Forrester is my go-to bourbon. Good choice.

Also all I need to buy to make that is the chartreuse and the campari...

Itís my birthday weekend.

Iím out drinking with Debatepro. (Galz, it was a Norma Jean...so good. How do you feel about Cynar?)

I love Cynar (and itís higher proof brother Cynar70). Cynar & Green Chartreuse are a match made in heaven.

My brother mixed up some cynar drink for us before, interesting, but not my top preference

My go to would be a Blushing Monk:

2 oz Bourbon
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
1/4 oz Cynar
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Raspberry Syrup
Couple Mint Leaves, Gently Muddled

But guessing you donít have the Raspberry Syrup? You could muddle a couple of raspberries and do 1/4 oz of Simple Syrup instead if you have the fresh fruit.

Otherwise I would do a riff on a Bijou, subbing Cynar in for the Sweet Vermouth. I would also cut the Chartreuse slightly from what most specs call for (equal parts). I would do:

1 1/2 oz Gin
3/4 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse

Slainte Mhath Dominionites.

I just recently discovered Benromach Organic and it is really good. It is my current whisky of choice.

Hmmm, not heard of it.  I do have a whiskey shaped hole in my liquor cabinet, but I don't get a lot of drinking done these days so I wasn't rushing to fill it.

Description?

I like the tasting notes / description for most Whisky at Master of Malt Website:
https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/benromach-organic-whisky/

A creamy black pepper flavour really came through for me and I am a sucker for Black Pepper. :)


Lats night we poured a Glencairn of House Stark (Dalwhinnie) and watched a couple episodes of "The Last Dance". It is quite smooth and easy drinking.
