Cocktail thread?

Post your favourites. Any original recipes you have? Or any twist on a classic?

I just got a bottle of pic related for making dem Martinez. Any other uses for it?

Purple Haze

1 part Chambord
5 parts dry sake (California Ki-Ippon)
Warm the drink in a small bottle placed in hot water. Do not let the water boil.


I'm not, as a rule, a cocktail drinker but these are effervescent and delicious and ten times as soul-warming as they have any right to be. Perfect winter/holiday drink.

Favourites:
Old Fashioned
Blood&Sand
Prince of Wales
New Yorker
Ratpack Manhattan

Not really an original recipe, but a Japanese Fine Dining near me serves a "Rei", which is just dry sake, two kinds of gin and Yuzu.
Pretty good, refreshing stuff.

I've never had sake. Is it comparable to anything?

What's a Ratpack Manhattan?
>>
>>7135291
12.5ml Grand Marnier liqueur
37.5ml Bourbon whiskey (personally, I love Koval, but MM will suffice of course)
12.5ml Sweet vermouth
12.5ml Dry vermouth
3 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters
>>
Winter Sun.

2 parts St. George Dry Rye Gin
1 part Lillet Blanc or Kina Lillet
1 part Gran Classico or a 50/50 split of high quality orange dry curacao & Italian Amaro. Can use Carpano Antica vermouth in place of the Amaro as well.

Shake and strain over ice into a martini glass and garnish with flamed orange peel.

>I've never had sake. Is it comparable to anything?

The closest analogue I can think of would be a naturally sweet white wine like a light moscato.
Sake has a different range of characteristics and flavors, though - floral and fruit, more or less acidity.

Youre really in to whiskey and orange then?

Personally I love a Manhattan. I think its the best cocktail there is. I also really like gin though. Hence buying the maraschino liqueur. Martinez is somewhat a combination of Martini and Manhattan.

pic related.

wrong glass though.

I'm quite into whisk(e)y in all its iterations I'd say, yeah. Usually not in cocktail form though, but if I do drink cocktails, it's on whisky basis or something very simple (a dry vodka Martini, for example).

This sounds nice.

Unfortunately I dont have any of the ingredients to make it, and it would be quite expensive to buy them.
