    Staples on my sideboard:
    Campari
    Averna
    Montenegro
    Chartreuse (green)
    Luxardo

    I donít have any Aperol or Cynar at the moment. And I need to pick up an absinthe. A decent bottle will last me forever since Iíll only use it to rinse glasses.

    ghosthop knows way more than me, he's the real expert. I will absolutely +1 his naked and famous recc though, that's one of my all time favorites.

    For green chartreuse one of my go-to's is the nuclear daquiri:

    1oz Jamaican white over proof rum (wray and nephew or rum fire)
    2/3oz green chartreuse
    1/2oz lime
    1/3oz velvet falernum

    shake, neat, lime wedge

    You can sub the velvet falernum for 1/3oz ancho reyes/ancho reyes Verde for an even spicier version, which I love.

    come drink in SLC with us

    Fun! Ok. You guys have solidly convinced me about the next additions to my cabinet. Will pick up some Chartreuse before Christmas. I like to sugar & alcohol detox between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Haha. Speaking of sugar & alcohol, I picked up a bottle of Luxardo brand Amaretto today. Been curious how it compares to the traditional Disaronno. I've heard good things, but don't know first hand.

    Ooh!!! For some reason I have never thought of mixing Licor 43 with a Brandy. That makes so much sense, though. Might have to nab a good bottle from Jerez to keep it proper Spanish. Thanks for the 43 recipe. Will give it a try for sure.

    https://www.thespeckledpalate.com/bu...maro-cocktail/
    Ingredients
    1 Ĺ oz. Amaro Nonino
    1 Ĺ oz. bourbon
    1 luxardo cherry
    1 lemon twist

    Instructions
    Place your large ice cube in a glass.
    Pour in the amaro.
    Pour in the same amount of bourbon.
    Garnish with the luxardo cherry and lemon twist.
    Stir with a spoon, then enjoy immediately.

    Replace the bourbon with rye, and tie it together with a couple dashes of black walnut bitters, and then youíve got something.

    Iíd still stir it in a mixing glass rather than building it in the drinking glass.

    ETA- which (minus the black walnut bitters) is apparently a David Wondrich creation called a Reanimator.

    I was in Spain last month and picked up a bottle of Licor 43. Mix it with some brandy and it is pretty good.

    Can we be just a bit more specific here?? As compared to what standard gins? Now the were on the subject, just exactly what do tits have to do with gin?? Big and blowsy? Small single scoops? Broad based? Over balanced with juniper?!??!!?!?

    Can we talk more about luxardo?
    Thinking I need it in the cabinet as well as chartreuse (might go with yellow which is usually available)

    While the Rusty Nail isn't exactly an unknown drink, I always felt it could certainly be improved upon. This piece ended up in my newsfeed and it seems the author might have nailed it.

    How to Upgrade a Rusty Nail, the Classic Scotch Cocktail Your Dad Loved in the ’70s
    https://robbreport.com/food-drink/sp...il-1234774310/

    Instead of the typical 2:1 or 1:1 Scotch to Drambuie, he goes 4:1 and a couple dashes of orange bitters. I'll need to give that a shot! I always loved the flavor of a Rusty Nail, but did find it a bit too much on the syrupy sweet side. Thoughts on this guy's take?

    Seriously, it is wildly versatile and makes everything better. They don't call it bartenders ketchup for nothing.

    Indeed. Been meaning to pick up another bottle. However, I try and keep my stash limited to one little cabinet, so I run out of room fast. Makes it fun to try new things as I cycle through unique stuff along with the seasons, but it's a challenge too. I feel like I should only store so many herbal liqueurs, ya know? Haha.

    WTF is going on with Chartreuse these days? I've checked with all my usual suppliers and NOBODY in town seems to have any, green or yellow. Attempting to restock my tiny bar as I prepare for Christmas and was looking forward to trying out some of your recipes. One store clerk told me it's been a PITA to get any for the last couple years. This been your experience too? Guess I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled every time I go back to the store.

    Havenít had any trouble finding green in Montana this year.

    Cynar was off the shelves for a while (and a bartender in Nebraska told me he had seen it in ~18 months), but thatís turning up again.

    Opposite here. No chartreuse but boatloads of Cynar now.

    There is one bottle of yellow chartreuse in Utah. And it's in Orem. I've been looking so I could make that Naked and Famous, but it's hard to find even online.
