    Good evening, fellow spirits advocates and mixologists of all stripes! What's in YOUR cocktail glass tonight? Mine's a classic margarita with Lunazul Reposado (3 oz), Cointreau (1 oz), juice of 1 lime, and a dash of organic agave nectar, shaken with ice and strained into a #proper glass rimmed with pink flake salt. Needless to say, this combo packs a punch. It's also delicious. ¡Salud!

    I think this is what "lunazul" translates to. If I'm wrong, I don't care.

    Good evening, all! Tonight it's another classic: Manhattan, with Hunter Rye 90 (2 oz), Martini Rosso (1/2 oz), and a couple dashes of Angostura bitters. This is a pretty solid rye for the price, and the Rosso complements it nicely. Cheers!

    Out of tequila but not out of gin?
    [​IMG]
    Olive was vermouth-soaked, other than that, just iced gin... Is that still a cocktail?

    Cheers...

    I think your approach beats mine. Booze then beer. Me. Beer then booze.

    You are correct about happy wife, happy life. I speak with almost 45 years of expience. Most of it sober.
