  • Re: Problems with the Chanticleer Site

    And the problems continue... The hosting company I've been using has apparently been bought out, sold, transitioned, whatever. The good news, is that they are migrating all [sic] existing sites to other hosting companies. The bad news, is that I got a notification that this site, for reasons they didn't explain, can't be migrated. So it

  • Re: some stuff I made

    Ralph, It is through trial and error experiments like this that some very interesting results can often appear. There are a number of tiki drinks which could probably benefit from this. Look for any that include pimento dram and see how they turn out. I would probably include a little more of your product than the recipe might call for of pimento dram

  • Re: fizzy water

    I think it all comes down to the flavor profile. Some of the "mineral waters" will bring with them various flavors, sometimes subtle, other times no so subtle. While there might be some drinks where were specifically designed around the flavor profile of one of these mineral waters, the vast majority were intended to use simple carbonated
  • Origins of Sour Mix

    I'm curious as to the origins of "sour mix". I've found some details that seem to point to Holland House as maybe producing one of the first commercial versions prior to prohibition, and a push to consumers directly following prohibition. But I'd like to get more details. Does anyone out there have any insights? According to this

  • Re: Email is up and working... obviously...

    Yeah, it was amazing how quickly traffic ground to a halt when folks weren't alerted about responses to their posts/questions. I struggled many times to try to figure out what was going on, was even trying to find a way to migrate the entire message threads to a new system just to get email back up again, but just by chance I happened to stumble

  • Email is up and working... obviously...
