My neighbors have been consistently impressed by the variety of cocktails that I'm drinking. It seems I'm developing quite the reputation. Thanks to you all.

Today, when I toasted my wife on the 15th anniversary of her death, I couldn't escape the bald fact that I was really in the mood for a Corpse Reviver #2. I WISH it were called something else.

I can't even think about undertaking this project - for starters, I have at least 6 of the old-style Rittenhouse bottles.   Shit - the bitters extend to the back of the cabinet!

Today, happy hour started at 3 pm. Made myself a GinGin Mule. Opihr Gin because I thought a cardamon forward gin would complement the ginger beer nicely. And it did.

Well done. I hate the way work interferes with early happy hours.

A new one to me, which I just love:  the Blind Lemon Jefferson:

Muddle a lemon wedge in the bottom of cocktail shaker.  Add ice.  Pour in 2 oz. Rye and 3/4 oz. each of lemon juice and Simple Syrup, with four dashes of Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters.  Shake.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with a lemon twist.

Drink this and you won't care how clean your grave is kept.

Like its eponymous city, a Toronto is almost as good as a Manhattan:

Pour 2 oz. Canadian whiskey if you have it or Rye if, like me, you don't and 1/4 oz. each of Fernet Branca and Simple Syrup, with 2 dashes of Angostura bitters, into an ice-filled cocktail shaker.  Stir.  Strain into a chilled Martini glass or coupe.  Garnish with an orange twist (Canadians wouldn't do anything so ostentatious as flame it!).

Think you can come up with a variation called the Blind Lemon Peel? (It's the name of my brother's blues band)

Meanwhile, a day later, I did a Rye Smash, roughly equivalent but for the muddling of lemon wedges with the addition of mint. Suuuuuuuperb and perfect for a sultry day.

Last night, tried a new (to me) low-ABV sipper, Jump the Gun:

1 1/2  oz Cocchi Americano
3/4 oz Jamaican rum (Smith+Cross if you've got it!)
2 dashes Angostura

Build in glass with ice. Garnish with lemon. (Honestly, I almost never bothered with citrus peel garnish at home in the Before Times. Now I almost never won't, as long as I'm stocked up.)

I think I have even more citrus peels than I do steaks.

And I have A LOT of steaks.

I had so many citrus peels that I made a massive batch of preserved lemons. I got the idea from Einat Admony I don't think I have enough to last me through 2025..
