What ya drinking tonight?

Recommended Posts

Picked up a bottle of Absolute New Orleans today! This is the first day I've seen it available, so I'm very happy to have it. Hey, I gotta do my job in supporting NO, right? :cheers:
Get it while you can, it's a limited edition (although a number of people are leaning on them to keep it around). Try a Jasper and let me know what you think:

 

The Jasper

2 oz ANO

1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth

1/2 oz Benedictine

1 dash Fee Brothers Orange Bitters

 

Stir in iced mixing glass and strain into chilled cocktail glass.

 

 

Me? I'm drinking coffee and nursing a headache after too many Overholt-Gigerale Highballs last ninght.

Will do! Gotta pick up some more sweet vermouth.

 

glad to hear it!

I need to pay better attention. I was about to PM you to ask if you wanted to taste a sample, but then I looked at your profile. What's the idiot icon? ;)

 

I actually ended up buying my client a bottle as well, as he's a HUGE rum afficionado. I've got a meeting with him on Friday, and I'm sure he'll love it.

Hey all......I've got some options and its still the middle of the week so I'm only going to have one tonight......well maybe two :devil: glasses of Absinthe ...

so wont it be fun for you to decide? for the next fifteen minutes I'll take suggestions from all those that have them and I'll go with what ever seems to come up the most

and hear they are:

Kübler 53

Jades Esprit edourd 72 , Verte Suesse 65, Nouvelle-orleans 68

Blanche de Fougerolles 74

Vert de Fougerolles 72

Un Emele 68 is blanche or le bleu?

Un Emile 68 Verte

Un Emile 68 Verte Sapin

and Finally a lovley bottle of François Guy

...I will mention the Pernod 1805 68

but I don't believe I will be drinking any tonight ....

so there it is!

I have sampled all but the Kübler and I may by default just go with that

if I don't get any sort of a consensus.....from the forum

so here it is kids

and the clock starts now :yahoo:

I vote for the suicide.

 

In all seriousness, I say Eddie and Nouvelle-Orleans.

 

Shabba: my kitchen is so small I can almost reach from one wall to another with my arms spread out. A tall fucker like you probably could do it easily. ;)

 

So naturally, the Fat Tuesday's drink wall means I don't have a stove.

I'll second the N.O., if only because I'm enjoying a glass now. For some reason I've kicked the sucre habit on all but Montmarte and N.O. I don't enjoy them as much without a little sugar.

interesting...I find the N.O. to be excellent without the suger

 

I think most everyone will agree with you, but I've always had a pretty big sweet tooth.
