"I'm a huge fan of Willett Rye 5 year old or Rittenhouse. This one put those to shame. I was hesitant getting a Rye from Utah, but apparently, someone does drink there."
"Quite the change up"
"I use rye or Dickel Tenn whisky. I find syrup easier than using a sugar cube. I dont bother with lemon or a cherry. I let the ice cubes melt a bit and then enjoy. I found my perfect mix and now stick with it. Even Obama wants it..."
"Kind of like a gimlet, but lavender "
"Unique flavor. If you really love Benedictine...."
"Noting tastes better than a $40 bottle of wine left in a cart in the Costco parking lot! Deep and rich and bold. Would be ideal with a ribeye"
"Silky with flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and spice. The review says "in the nose it presents notes of black cherry, blackberry and dried plum". I don't know how they figure that shit out... but they did. I smell the dried plum."
"One of the best from Napa, it's dense and has a long velvety finish. "
"Never tried this with vodka. Real onion taste comes out. Kind of savory"
"I was looking for some drink to make with Marsala. This tastes very much like a "Perfect" Gin Martini. Not bad. Good to watch Mad Men to...."
Recently had one at the Zig Zag Cafe in Seattle, where Murray Stenson re-discovered this drink a few years ago. Ever since it's regained it's fame. Now tourists come to Seattle and ask for Seattle's cocktail, The Last Word...
I also prefer letting some large cubes melt. It does open up new flavors. But I just imagined freezing a handful of old teeth and using that as a frozen source....
I muddled some cuke in one lately. mmmm
My favorite! I make mine with equal parts your ingredients with lemon juice and cointreau. It ended up tasting just like the candy (but with alcohol)..
After Pepsico sold it to the Dr Pepper/Snapple group, it's been hit and miss in Seattle. So I started making my own with my SodaStream
Most amazing picture!
Reminds me of the orange sidecar I make. I gotta try this one!
I gotta check out that bar, sounds like fun
That's on my list to try!
Since I like Metaxa, I prefer this. Also I can go heavy on the Benedictine if I wish...which I often prefer.
