    Just like all scotch isn’t smoky, neither is all mezcal. Mezcal is a distillate of agave, tequila is a specific type of agave.

    So much about sitting at a bar is learning a way to be rather than knowing the most. It’s an incredible equalizer and brings out the best and worst in us, under specific circumstances. I am sure you will set a great example for your daughter and be surprised about how competent she is with handling the world.

    Aperol is a bitter appertif, Italian I believe. It’s a must have in your bar because it goes in so many cocktails.

    Revolver
    2 oz. bourbon
    0.5 oz. coffee liqueur
    2 dashes orange bitters
    Add all ingredients to a rocks glass over a large piece of ice and stir. Garnish with a flamed orange peel or a regular orange peel.

    Finally gave this a go and put my spin on it.

    2oz Widow Jane Decadence (Their maple syrup barrel rested bourbon)
    .5oz Espresso liqueur. (Really liking the one out of Marble distillery)
    .5oz Mezcal (I'm using Del Maguey Chichicapa, way over the top, but it works really well in this)
    1 dash Mole Bitters
    1 dash orange bitters
    1 dash of Toasted Almond bitters
    Little bit of simple syrup.

    Came out amazing!
    is this thing on?

    Saw Green and Yellow Chartreuse at local independent liquor store today but it was $64 a bottle.
    Don't remember what I paid a few months back, but it wasn't that.
    $50 is my wtf line, I would have remembered...

    Seems it used to be priced similar to Frenet, etc before the Monks unionized

    It’s $70ish a bottle in Montana, so that’s a buy for me.

    Originally saw it in my Google app newsfeed. Still can read it there but not on Chrome or Safari if you happen to have the app.

    Ok, Tgapp I got one for you. It’s more of a shot than a cocktail, but it’s called a ferlort, and as you’d assume it’s equal parts fernet and Malort.

    I haven’t had one yet, but sounds interesting

    yikes, the last time I was in Chicago I went to some fancy James Beard nominated cocktail bar and paid $20 for a cocktail which I can only assume was basically 3 straight ounces of fernet. Even after a month of therapy I'm still not back to my usual old self. Just seeing the fernet label makes me want to go cry in the corner.

    I don’t really do any cocktails with it but when you feel a cold coming on, a couple drops in some water or half a shot right down the gullet does wonders.

    I think the word vegetal is one of the least appetizing words to describe something.

    Maybe it sounds better in French?

    Have I already talked about the Man ‘o War cocktail? New fave:

    2 oz bourbon or rye
    1/2 oz Cointreau
    1/2 oz sweet vermouth
    1/2 oz lemon juice
    1/2 oz Luxardo cherry juice

    Instead of a 1/2 ounce of Luxardo cherry juice I’ve been doing a 1/4 oz of the juice and then a 1/4 oz of Luxardo cherry liquor. 2 cherries for garnish. Less sweet. And you can’t make this with typical grocery store maraschino cherrys, they don’t cut it at all. I haven’t had Luxardo brand cherries for a while but I found some Sausalito brand that are a good substitute.

    I don’t really like anything cherry, but if I did I bet this is awesome

    Ha! There's a well-known woman cocktologist here in town that has a tattoo of the Fernet label on her forarm. I always wonder what would make someone love it that much.

    Now Malort needs to go back to Chicago. Every swinging dick lately seems to be ordering it, talking it up, and finding new ways to ruin cocktails with it.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Maybe she's got some roots/connection in Argentina?

    Right? Ménage à trois sounds much more sophisticated than threesome or two chicks at the same time.
