White Negroni with Cocchi Americano. I don't know if I like it. I'd better have a couple more and consider this further.

That's the only way I can handle that spectrum of bitters.    i speak theoretically since I can't down a single glass of Compari family drinks.    I'm a real peasant!

I need better supervision. 

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

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.

I generally like bitter, but (as @Sneakeaterwill remind you if I don't), I generally avoid sweet drinks. This seems sweeter than a regular Negroni, but also lighter, because Campari has a syrupy quality that's obviously missing here. I recently had a White Negroni at that Italian place in Brooklyn*, and it was better than the one - okay, two - I just made.

* you know, the classy one that my friends like, with the semi-circular banquettes and the flattering lighting and the "local carrots"

You know, @Wilfrid, as I sit here enjoying what has become my nightly Caipirinha (it has to do with trying not to have my air conditioners going 24/7), it occurs to me:

Ask The Munchkin's boyfriend what he thinks about making Capirinhas without sugar.

He might feel that he has to be polite to you.  But I can't believe he'd be genuinely receptive.

A Walk in the Woods

This one badly named cocktail:  there's nothing woodsy about it in the slightest.

That's cuz, I now see, the name of this cocktail as Walk in the Park, not the "Woods".  (And, for whatever it's worth, no "A" at the beginning.)

I think this drink is too cloying.

I think Limoncello -- fine on its own -- is probably a problematic cocktail ingredient.  Too sweet.

The good thing about having the rather stupid spirits collection that I have is that, if I feel like having a Gin and Tonic with a wimpy but not totally undistincitive London Dry Gin, I can.

Gin and Tonic

Pour what seems like an appropriate amount of Sipsmith London Dry Gin into a Collins glass over ice.  Top with Tonic Water.  Garnish with a Key Lime (the two halves of which you squeeze into the drink before plopping in the remnants).

Sipsmith definitely has its uses (although not in any Martini I'm going to drink).
