Sometimes, after a long week, you just want a Manhattan: 3 ingredients, nothing fancy (not even simple syrup).

You wouldn't put simple syrup in a Manhattan though, right?

Exactly.  Rye whiskey, Campari, and Angostura bitters, et voila.

I imagine you mean sweet vermouth in lieu of the Campari? Or maybe dry vermouth if making a dry Manhattan?

I started packing up my liqueur in anticipation of Passover arriving later this week. I acquired so many bottles this past year that I can no longer fit them all into my pantry.

Yes.  Was thinking Cinzano (which I used) but typing Campari.

Following my own advice, I made a Water Lily to drink while watching Matt Evans's excellent (if truncated) concert tonight.

But it occurred to me:  if I use Meyer lemon juice instead of lemon juice, then I don't have to express an orange peel into the cocktail and then discard the peel at the end.  The orange element will already be there in the juice!

So, a Lazy Water Lily:

Pour 3/4 oz. each of Gin, Cointreau, Crème de Violette, and Meyer lemon juice into an ice-filled cocktail shaker.  Shake.  Strain into a chilled Martini glass or coupe.

I think I probably prefer Water Lilies to Aviations.

Laird's original distillery (where I think they still have a base) is almost down the road from where I grew up in NJ.  I didn't know this until very recently.

The oldest continuing distillery in the US, if you can believe it.
