  • some stuff I made

    Well, I made some allspice dram and with some leftover plum jam stock, and some just go with it, a rum - plum liqueur. The allspice dram is interesting, but I think the proof is a little high, made it with a mix of regular and Jamaican allspice. Blended it with wray and nephew and 151, same with the rum plum stuff I made, turned out AMAZING!!! And the

  • fizzy water

    So I was looking through a few old drink books and i noted in a few "top with apollinaris water". From what I can find, this was/is a german mineral water. I am assuming it is a lot like the Perrier/Pellegrino mineral waters you find in the stores commonly. Which brings me to this, for whatever reason I have never used a sparkling mineral

  • Re: my mai tai problem

    actually found a formula that has proven pretty successful, for starters I have scale (metrically!!) the total alcohol to 60ml (app 2 ounces). I have been using 1 oz of appleton estates rum, .5 oz batavia arrak for that deep rum flavor, or sometimes wray and nephew overproof rum instead. Then .5 oz curacoa, usually the pierre ferrand. Seems to split

  • Re: Origins of Sour Mix

    Since I completed that elemental mixology class I have been looking at a lot of old cocktail books that are available on EUVS, and one thing I have NOT seen in any of them so far (I do note here, so far) is the ingredient sour mix.

  • question 2, anyone have a good resource?

    So, although going slow, the still I have been building is slowly coming together. But it occurred to me that I may be putting the cart before the horse. The key I think would be to master the actual distillation process first so I have decided to build a small still (a cute beastie of my own imagination!!!) to practice and to use to make some flavored

  • my mai tai problem

    Well, it's not so much a problem for me, quite frankly I think my mai tai is a work of pure art and is my summertime delight. This summer's orgeat will be a masterpiece. But if you look at the recipe for the original, it is, and mine is as well, a pretty boozy drink. Which leads me to the problem, it is just too boozy for some of the people

  • Re: Metric Measurments?

    yes, it is a struggle!! but I find it a bit interesting as well, sort of my "breathalyzer test". When I find I cannot do the conversions in my head any more I know I've had enough to drink!!!!!!
