Had a Chartreuse based drink after a long time. I like the strong presence of a Chartreuse. This has gin, yellow chartreuse and orange bitters.
That was an interesting name for a drink. I always thought a balalaika is one of those Russian triangular looking guitar like instruments. The drink though is a variant of the grand old Sidecar.
The original formula called for equal parts of Vodka, Cointreau and Lemon juice. I do not enjoy tarty drinks too much. So, went with a 2:2:1 combination. That was just about right for me…
Finished off the hectic afternoon with a Rob Roy in the evening…
This is Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth and bitters.
After a long day of motorbiking – over 200 miles that took nearly 5 hours of riding time, finally settled down at home with a Bourbon Sidecar. This would be Bourbon, Cointreau and lemon juice.
It was a hot and humid evening. Mango, limoncello and champagne
Settling down this rainy evening with a traditional Sazerac.
Absinthe, sugar syrup, bitters, rye whiskey and cognac.
There are two Farmer’s Martini I found. This is the first one…
Gin, Dry vermouth, Sweet vermouth and bitters.
It was the perfect drink for pool time given the high temperatures and the 8 mile run…
Lemon juice (I had no limes), mint leaves, coconut rum, sugar and soda water.
In keeping with the torrential downpour in Milton, made this drink – original source: Honest Cooking – and enjoyed it while sitting on the patio and remembering similar rainfall in Costa Rica.
Gin, peach schnapps, lime juice and ginger ale.
Another summer drink…
Ciron vodka, mandarin vodka, lime juice, orange juice and triple sec.
