Have a seat at Bar COVID-19!

Recommended Posts

Started shifting from homebrewing to getting into cocktails. Built up my bar a bit ahead of this pandemic so been having fun learning new cocktails, using the Death & Co. book as my guide. Have to say, the Oaxaca Old Fashioned is my jam. Highly recommend. Otherwise, on hotter days, we slam Ranch Waters using Desert Door Sotol.

Me too. Ruby red vodka and sprite is a great way to get your wife wasted.

 

Duly noted.

First drink in 2+ weeks. Also, first day in ages I haven't taken an afternoon nap. Amazing as I only got 4 hours of sleep last night.

Made a Paloma, but with Empirical Spirits Fuck Trump and his Stupid Fucking Wall rather than Tequila.

It is good.

Now is that the Death Star?  If so, that’s awesome.

Awesome.  I have a couple of them, too.  One of those late night drunky-Facebook ad purchases.  And well worth it!

We've been doing day drinking margs for a couple weeks now. Espolon or Cuervo silver, triple sec, and marg mix.  Specs curbside has been our savior.

Funny you mention that. Our first Specs curbside delivery had this subbed for our Cuervo mix, and honestly it's better.

Ranch water - enjoying as we speak. First time, I’m a fan. 

Ranch waters are great. My grandpa loved them and my grandma didn't tell at him much cause she said it has water. Good stuff

Enjoying some Buffalo Trace and a splash of Topo Chico right now

Got bored so started to make crazy concoctions and see if anything tasted good. Blended scotch (in this case Johnny Walker gold) with a little ginger ale, a splash of amoretto, and a splash of red bull has been delightfully refreshing.

I'm here every night. Would like to cut it back to 2-3x per week but wtf else is there to do? 

I like ruby red vodka (Deep Eddy is my personal fave) and sparkling water. I mix them up in a 30 oz tumbler with plenty of ice. It's 70 proof so I get some mileage out of it without getting shitfaced.

Got bored of manhattans.  Had a few dark and stormies.

Read a LPT on batching cocktails. I now prepare a batch of manhattans - premix 12 oz of whiskey with 6 oz of vermouth and 3 oz of water. Chill overnight then add to a glass with your bitters and whatever else you want to add.

Updated this to do 3/4 oz of amaro or sweet vermouth instead of the amoretto. A little more refined taste. 

Another one I did 2 oz bourbon or rye, 1 oz sweet vermouth, 1/4 oz  Alberti amaro, 1 teaspoon either Cynar or fernet-branca depending on which flavor profile you wish to go. 1-2 dashes angostura. Shake vigorously over ice and pour either neat or over a single large cube. Garnish with lemon peel and a luxardo cherry.

Called it "The Faust" in honor of the apparent downfall of our country at the hands of insane and evil greed and incompetence.

Made a Dauphin.

I used Death Star ice, and had no garnishes, but this is tasty. Oh yeah, substituted oat milk for the "coconut almondmilk".1b03106779e248a7abbcfa4d7882c9a8.jpg
Thought I included the recipe.

Told the wife I was going to dial it back a little on weeknights this week then May crude contracts went all inverted.

Sticking with misery and gin.

Tonight’s green lit Greenall’s all night.

Might as well. I don’t think you can get herpes twice.

Buddy of mine "created" a drink called Corona-Jeff.  Rye Whisky, a little vermouth, lemon juice.  I have none of those things. 

Kind of like a Man o' War with no triple sec.
