Evelyn, April 29 in Wines and liquor
Sub in Forthave Red!
(Then it's not a Negroni.)
There's always Aperol. But it's a little less bitter.
I can't remember--was curacao mentioned, or is that one too obvious?
Made our 2nd trip to Total Wine in less than a week. I think our liquor expenditures this month are going to be higher than our food expenditures.
OOOOOH, The vermut and vermouth look interesting!
Orgeat - buy or make?
I buy it. But I'm lazy. YOU should probably make it.
I mean, it's easier than baking bread.
I'm sure you've seen this, but just in case:
Ooooh, the Japanese Cocktail is a favorite.
Here's another option, from a friend, for making a small batch of orgeat...
150 grams blanched almonds [or other nut]
1 blanched apricot kernel (optional)
250 ml water
200 grams table sugar
30 ml brandy
1-5 drops of orange flower water or rose flower water to taste (optional)
I'm really liking the 123 line of tequilas.
Also, Tempus Fugit Kina l'Aero d'Or might be even better as a contemporary Kina than Cocchi Americano (not that I'm kicking Cocchi Americano out -- or that I'd be happy having to choose between them) (I think Cocchi Americano still works better in drinks where you want a slightly softer feel, as in the Roy Howard I had a couple of nights ago) (but I'm chomping at the bit to have an Aero d'Or Vesper).
Finally drained my bottle of Green Chartreuse. My only regular use for it is in Last Words, and I don't use much, so that lasted a looooong time.
