But how'd they know your mom wasn't Jewish? (Because I think, but don't quote me, the shabbos goy can't be a Jew).

she was Jewish and knew they wouldn't assume that she was and she liked that she was sort of screwing our crappy neighbors both ways. 


eta: my mom was kind of a bitch

I went to a local crafts fair today and scored 3 vintage coupe glasses for $9 total.  So we enjoyed a Twentieth Century in them in the backyard this afternoon. 1 1/2 oz. gin 3/4 oz. Lil

I need better supervision. 

A cocktail worthy of having given its name to most important bar of our time, the Pegu Club: Pour 2 oz. Gin (Monkey 47!) and 3/4 oz. each of Curaçao and lime juice, with 1 dash each of Angostura

is kosher-ness a function of the base wine?

My mind was blown when I learned Port and Sherry Casked finished Scotch isn't Kosher for some folks. 

That's exactly the problem - it contains wine (actually, there are issues with alcohol derived from grapes so Ciroc vodka and G'vine aren't kosher either).

As for Port-, Sherry- or Sauternes-finished whiskies, there are those who say that because the initial wine isn't kosher you can't benefit by infusing the flavor. But there are others that say that because there's 60 times more of the kosher ingredient than the non-kosher then it's ok.

This one needs some work, but it has potential. The Torch Song: 2 oz gin (gonna try vodka), 1 oz lime juice (lemon juice also a possibility, as is black vinegar, if I'm feeling crazy), 3/4 oz torch ginger syrup, mint (or something else?), soda. Obviously the only constant is the syrup - because I like the name.

If you're thinking of making a joke about how if I drink three of them, it'll be called a Torch Song Trilogy, know that that joke has already been made - twice - and my response was that if I drink three of them, it'll be called a Small H Falls Asleep on the Couch.

I don't understand why say a Paper Plane would be respectable and a Cosmo wouldn't.

Really though? Not to say it's not a well-constructed drink, but strikes against are:

vodka base (cocktail cognoscenti eyeroll, like it or not)
reads like a tarted up Cape Codder

Whereas Paper Plane, you've got an amaro in the ingredients, plus bourbon, so right away there's a clear demarcation from "fruit juice + unchallenging alcohol"

I mean, you do understand. Rightly or wrongly. Right? In a (clearly imaginary) world where you'd never heard of either and you see the ingredient list on a menu, which do you think speaks to you?

It's the curse of Sex and the City. Many believe that if they drank it it can't possibly be good. Kind of like how all fiction by women is discounted as "chick lit"

Or like how merlot was subjected to the "Sideways" curse.
