Damaine de Canton sounds really good. I had a nice glass of Lillet last night. Tonight a yet to be determined red with dinner.
Yes one would think so, but does not seem to.
Here are a couple of things I've tried:
Slice up some peaches, mix some ginger liqueur with white wine and peach schnapps and a spritz of seltzer.
The Fred and Ginger :
1/2 oz Woodford Reserve bourbon
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz Domaine de Canton
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/4 oz (12 – 14 dashes) Angostura bitters (I prefer 8 to 10)
1 1/2 part(s) Jameson Irish Whiskey
1/2 part(s) Hiram Walker Caramel Apple Liqueur
1/2 part(s) Canton Ginger Liqueur
1 squirt(s) Lemon Juice
played around with a few martinis, gin based - not vodka types, as a added secret flavor ingredient, not yet as a main.
Boston Lager on tap!
Isle of Jura ten year old single malt.
A nice lively one.
The apple sauce sounds interesting.
I was looking through old files and found one labeled Rye Recipes. I HATE vermouth, so I made this one:
3 oz rye whiskey
1 oz port wine
1 0z dark rum
3 dashes orange bitters
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Pour the ingredients into a shaker, add ice, and shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass.
I made a double and put it in the refrigerator in a closed container. It's a mildly painful experience, but tastes odd to say the least. On the bright side, I used up all of my Crap Jefferson's Rye. And to think I used to look up to ole Thomas Jefferson.
It may be a week or so before I finish that sucker.
I think I would have left out the port wine and the orange bitters. Both seem kind of redundant with the other ingredients. You already have your sweet, strong and sour. No need to overpower it.

"Overpower it" That's one of them there understatements.
J & B Scotch , a long forgotten bottle I found in the back of the cabinet. Not great, but not terrible either.
Dos Equis last night and Templeton with a couple ice cubes tonight.
Stay Thirsty my friend. May you win trophies for your game face alone.
Blue Ribbon on Tap.
The hipsters are in town again?
The only ones we have here are high schoolers.
Meyer lemon caipirinha.
