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!

Ward Eight

Pour 2 oz. Rye, 1/2 oz. lemon juice and 1/4 oz. orange juice (I used 3/4 oz. Meyer lemon juice -- cuz I had an old Meyer lemon and I'm lazy!), and 1/4 oz. Grenadine into an ice-filled cocktail shaker.  Shake.  Strain into a rocks glass over ice.  Top with club soda.

I haven't had one of those in years. I need to get some grenadine.

Reliving a little Pegu Club nostalgia, I just knocked back a Fitty-Fitty. Equal parts gin martini, cold as you can get it. Lemon twist. And drink it fast.

And then have another. (I should have another, right?)

Orange bitters? 

Of course you should have another one - it's actually one of our favorite martinis.

Orange bitters, natch. And a big ol' swath of lemon.

Plattitude's Zephyr.  (I know he didn't formulate it -- but it'll always be "Plattitude's Zephyr" to me.)

Bracing.

 

Ha. Well, I'll take it. It's a mighty fine drink. (And not to be churlish but... Plattetude.)

Late afternoon tipple following the family bike ride in the insane heat:  John Collins, using Genevieve genever, from the fine folks at Anchor Distilling. Oh so nice.
