What are you drinking? (continued) [Booze]

I picked up a bottle of Flor de Cana Estate Bottled 18 yr old rum coming back from Mexico. OMG.

Unbelievably rich and mellow, huge notes of chocolate, long dark caramel finish, sexy and smoky as Kathleen Turner in "Body Heat". This not a rum for drinking, this is a rum to look at and contemplate. It is like a giant Band-Aid on all the past wrongs done in the world.

Now to figure out how to make it last until next year...

Hey Rizak,

I call it "Laurentian View". I've been toying around with 66 Gilead's Pine Vodka the past few days. Last night I made another original I call the "Alpine Jewel":

0.5 oz. Beefeater 24 gin; 0.5 oz. 66 Gilead Pine Vodka; 1 oz. Carpano Antica vermouth; 0.5 oz. Montenegro amaro; 0.5 oz. Green Chartreuse. Stir over ice and strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish.

Surprisingly delicious.

I tried a delicious cocktail at a Christmas party. They called it a Peppermint Chocolatini. It was vodka, clear creme de cacao and peppermint schnapps. Like a decadent adult version of a chocolate mint pattie.
