Tonight I splurged on an old favorite, the Corpse Reviver #1. Can’t go wrong with cognac, applejack and a good sweet vermouth. Practice for reviving my corpse on New Year’s morning!
Upon initial inspection, this drinks sounded like a perfect rum representation of the holidays, but unfortunately, I just can’t get past the taste of the Punt e Mes. I really want to like it, but it’s just too bitter for my palate (and for my husband’s, for that matter). I reverted to my Cardamaro Manhattan to see the night through.
Starting a little early today because it’s Sunday, I am waiting on laundry, and I couldn’t wait to try the New York maple syrup my boss sent for Christmas. Just 1/4 oz to replace the sugar cube in this High West Bourye old fashioned makes a lovely drink.
Today is a rainy day best spent in bed on a Netflix binge, and we did our duty. This cocktail from the PDT app is a great pre-dinner drink that celebrates both the season and just this kind of day. A hair in the sweet side, but that’s likely due to my lazy substitution of bottled orange juice.
