  1. Wife and I went in early Feb and even with it being early in the new regime, very good experience. It definitely felt like Blanca but just as definitely had a distinctly new culinary bent with her Chilean (and other South American) influences. Recommended if you liked it before!
  2. I do and I shall! Meanwhile, just now, a modified Sun King (fka my own submission in the Fruit Bat series) 2 oz rye (Old Overhold bonded) 1/2 oz Cocchi Americano + 1/4 oz yellow Chartreuse (replacing 3/4 oz blanc vermouth) 1/4 oz Suze 1/4 oz maraschino 2 dashes orange bitters It's a little richer but stilllll good.
  3. Yesterday's cocktail... Rhubarb Gimlet 2 oz gin (Greenhoook American Dry) 3/4 oz lime 3/4 oz rhubarb syrup* Shake, strain into coupe * Rhubarb syrup (easy-peasy Morgenthaler method) equal parts chopped rhubarb, sugar, warm water, whizzed in a blender for a few minutes to a puree and strained through a fine strainer (and cheesecloth/chinoise/whatever, as you like)
  4. Also, Officers' Reserve is a really lovely navy strength, sherry-barrel rested offering. And for the price, both that and the standard line are great buys.
  5. It's on a knife-edge, but it really works. It's got roundness and depth, but not cloying. The expressed lemon peel (which I hadn't mentioned) is pretty necessary too I'd say.
  6. Last night at Attaboy, had a particularly fabulous equal parts drink they've been pouring lately Dandelion 3/4 oz gin (Ford's) 3/4 oz Montenegro 3/4 oz Elderflower liqueur (St. Germain) 3/4 oz lemon rinse absinthe

    Late to the party on this, but speaking from the belly of the beast that killed Pitchfork... (AND WHICH ALSO, BTW, KILLED GOURMET FFS) Maybe if you turned off your ad blocker, Conde Nast could've kept Pitchfork going a while longer. :shrug: But you can be pretty sure they'll do their best to keep the brand alive within GQ, as long as Pitchfork Festival continues to draw a crowd.
  8. Median? You know, like the middle of a boulevard(ier)?
  9. Sentimental favorite. Early days at Pegu Club, asked Phil Ward to make me something with Campari and he served this up.
  10. +1 on Ends Meat. Damn. Also Grand Delancey... waaaaaaah.
  11. Speaking of uses of Fernet, stumbled on this the other day. Definitely will be trying but have not yet. The Alligator 2oz Fernet Branca 3/4oz Lime Juice 1/2oz Orange Liqueur 1/2oz Cinnamon Syrup
  12. Late to the orange party, but when I have an orange to lend to a cocktail, I almost ALWAYS turn to the as-yet-unnamed tequila variation of a Monkey Gland that Phil Ward opened my mind to many years ago at Death&Co. 2 oz blanco tequila (or reposado, why not) 1 oz orange juice 1/2 oz grenadine (homemade unless you have some really good bottled stuff) dash absinthe
