  • Re: Abbott's Bitters

    The book has 7 drinks called Cosmopolitan (and all before a famous magazine was named that). However, that gin, Cointreau, lemon, raspberry syrup version is still the best!

    Mixellany did it a few years ago; my blog indicates that I bought it back in 2009. I find them an exercise in adapting them to something drinkable with some real gems in there/

  • Tales of the Cocktail 2015 roll call!

    Just curious as to who is going to Tales this year? I'll be there for the first time since 2011, from Tuesday until Monday. Still have a Chanticleer Society pin that Robert was handing out at the first Tales after the board went up (either 2009 or 2010).

One high volume bar here in Boston pours so many Puritans, for example, that they just add 3 oz to a mixing glass and a dash of bitters (unless the bitters are already in there). The Cocktail Kingdom Japanese jiggers with intermediate measures were quite handy at my last job. They
