Vodka & Gus' Valencia Orange Soda

"Better known as a "highball". I don't work and/or am NOT affiliated with Gus' soda, but its light, less sugar and makes the cocktail more enjoyable for my tastes. They make great soda, now they just have to make it affordable. $6 for 4 smaller bottles ain't cheap :("

Ginger Whisky Sour

"Pure experiment, pure success on first try... wonder if it already has a name?"

Maker's Mark Whisky

"I've had rib sauce in restaurants with Maker's Mark. I never thought much of it... but after buying my first bottle, do I dare to say its competition for Jack Daniels? I found it to be not as sweet and a bit smooth with hints of vanilla?"

Mint Julep

"Many ways to make/serve this but its fairly simple. I don't like it in a metal cup, but it helps keep it cooler. This cup is a replica from the 1950s. The originals were colored from the inside and outside, these, the outside only. Who else remembers them from our parent's days of cocktails?"

SoCo & Sprite

"Delicious. Southern Comfort is so under rated for mixing or drinking straight or even with a twist of any citrus."

"Old Fashioned" Gin Martini

"A Martini is not a Martini if there is no gin. I love the "Martini" concept of Appletinis, Melontinis, Cosmos, etc etc, but if you order a "Martini" it is NOT a Martini if its made with anything other than Gin, and yes, that includes you too my favorite spirit, Vodka."

I don't know about 7-up, it could be regional, where are you? Here in North Jersey/NYC I can't find it, but growing up in the 70s we had cases of it in the garage in the old steel cans (not aluminum).

Yes, if you make it with orange juice it becomes known as a "Melonball" delicious ;)

Yes, if you use the polaricetray.com molds you definitely only need one triangle ice cube in the winter, maybe one of their bigger "rock" molds in the summer outdoors... it takes up like 50% of the glass lol.

commented on Caipirinha:

PS - When you see the shrimp on the bottle label, do not be afraid, this is NOT distilled from shrimp (although you will see bottles of cachaca with peppers, eels, lizards, other small insects (like the worm at the bottom of the bottle of tequila)... no shrimp were harmed and/or used in the making of this spirit! For Brazilians, eating fresh shrimp while drinking a caipirinha on the beach is like going to the movies and having popcorn or going to a baseball game and having a hotdog - its part of the experience... one goes with the other as part of it, otherwise you don't get the full experience!

commented on Caipirinha:

Silver or light rum will be much smoother, but then it would be a Daiquiri made famous by Hemingway when he was living/writing in Key West, Florida. You can find the lime as any major part of your simplest but classic cocktails by many names: Daiquiri: Lime Juice & Rum Caiparinha: Lime Juice & Cachaca Gimlet: Lime Juice & Gin (or vodka) Margarita: Lime Juice & Tequila Mojito: Lime Juice, Rum, Crushed mint leaves For your darker liquors, use lemon for: Whiskey Sour: Lemon Juice & Whiskey Amaretto Sour: Lemon Juice & Amaretto Pisco Sour: Lemon Juice & Pisco (etc etc). Basically, when ANY recipe calls for "sweet & sour mix" instantly replace it with fresh lemon and/or lime juice... far better, far tastier, far more authentic. "Simplicity is a sign of perfection"

Is there a brand name of this silicone tray? Does it make clear or cloudy ice?

Stoli is my have Russian vodka, for "everyday" vodka I use Svedka, great tasting, smooth, and also most economical of all imports.

commented on Gimlet:

I'll have to buy another bottle and do a blind tasting to compare... I was actually knocking the "celeb" chef restaurant... how dare they charge me $15 for a single drink and use anything other than top shelf, unless there is a unique quality that does not take away from the rest of the drink? Maybe tanqueray & bombay dominate the drink somehow? Still trying to figure it out :)

Well, it took 5 ingredients but I guess I call it that because its as premium as you can get LOL
