    P. Goldsmith and Sons A-2!?

    So I take a peak at Wikipedia's page on A-2 jackets and I see a list of manufacturers with an name I've never seen before. P. Goldsmith and Sons, according to Wiki, made 25 jackets before Security Aviation Togs. I did a bit of research and it looks like they made baseball equipment; gloves...

    I was on a quest to find Vandermint for a Christmas present. I believe it's no longer made, but I did find it. It must have been old stock and since the bottle I had left was definitely old stock (and tasted like what I remember- blah) I assumed this "new" bottle would be okay. It doesn't mix...

    A mix of Bonal, Cocchi Americano, Mezcal, lemon juice, and a few blades of rosemary- on the rocks.

    The Singapore Sling

    So, the recipe I went for was without pineapple juice and topped with soda. The Benedictine is a must, it did so much for this drink. I also preferred the Cherry Heering over the kirsch. When I used the kirsch I offset the lack of sugar with grenadine which also made the drink red in the absence...

    Hazelnut wood for grilling/smoking

    Since the topic is about cold smoking, I just want to add; I make lox, which of course starts by dry curing with salt, pepper and sugar. It's pressed and the moisture is wicked away. Before the fillets are smoked, to keep the smoke from "sticking" to the outside of the fish (that sort of over...

    Hazelnut wood for grilling/smoking

    Exactly. I've found nut and stone fruit wood tend to be sharp, as you say. Pomme fruit, grape and maple I use to mellow and round out the flavor. Cherry, especially wild black cherry can be really overpowering.

    Hazelnut wood for grilling/smoking

    I have, Don. I used wood from a Harry Lauders Walking Stick (contorted filbert). I used it for bluefish, which happens to be a very oily fish. It did work well, however, I liked it best when I used it with apple.

    The Singapore Sling

    I love to make classic cocktails. Speaking of variety not quantity, my liquor stock can rival most bars and restaurants. One thing missing however, was Cherry Heering, no longer... On to the Singapore Sling! So, after researching and trying to figure out which recipe to start with, I'm left...

    You know what else I find really awful?.. Mixers, where mixers aren't called for. Like a Tom Collins mixer or daiquiri mixers.

    What Did You Drink Last Night?

    I usualy avoid smoked beer. I'd give this a try based on your opinion. I had a nice one once from Alesmith called Decadence- maple smoked porter. I like that one!

    What Did You Drink Last Night?

    That's the one! I use a sliver of vanilla bean to garnish rather than ginger. I have Red Haven and Hale Haven. Red Haven come off around the end of July, Hale Haven two weeks later.
