commented on Whiskey and soda:

If memory serves, it was Canadian Club. Kind of my go to every day whiskey. A soda siphon is that squirt bottle contraption with a trigger and a spout that you see in old Marx brothers comedy scenes. You basically put water in it and then charge the bottle with s carbon dioxide cartridge and get carbonated seltzer water out. I kind of have an evening ritual of a big ice cube, a healthy pour of whiskey and a splash of soda from the siphon all in my favorite rocks glass.

commented on Manhattan:

Probably the greatest drink of all time, but I have to admit that I much prefer it with rye rather than bourbon.

I was thinking taking your advice of making it my Olympic drink as well.

commented on Mojito:

Absolutely. It's definitely a great summer drink (especially when one starts with mint rather than a mixer bottle with a dubious green color).

Thanks. I should probably give credit that I got the recipe from Imbibe magazine and they got it from Ted Kilgore of Taste Bar by Niche in St. Louis. I like Fernet Branca, but it's menthol and eucalyptus flavors don't always play well with others. There's a hilarious Bill Cosby bit about it: http://youtu.be/_0QTD3uZoTI

Oops iPhone spellcheck. It's a mojito. How the f isn't that in the dictionary?

Thanks. We tried it again last night with the light rum (that's what's in the picture) and thought it was a little better with an aged rum, though both are good.
