  2. Hahahah! Yeah, sounds just like him. :p "a real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's lime juice and nothing else."[SUP][[/SUP]
     
  3. Rose's is sweetened lime unless you use the lime juice cordial. :p

    HI

    Well, I've got the ingredients, I guess I'll have to try both tomorrow night. I have Rose's lime juice and some cheap gin since I'm not drinking all of it in G&T's anyway.

  6. Give it a try and let us know which one works best for you. I am partial to the four to one. :p

    While the peaches are coming off of the trees- Thoroughbred cocktail
     
  9. Peaches this late?! My peaches and nectarines are all done for the year no. :p I do have some from the neighbor behind me though. His tree must bear later than mine. They are kind of small though since he didn't thin them. [huh]

    This recipe:
    2 ounces Bourbon 1 1/2 ounces peach puree
    1 ounce lemon juice
    3 dashes Angostura bitters
    splash club soda
    crushed ice
    1 slice candied ginger, for garnish (optional)

    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.
     
  11. Hmmmm.... I have never heard of those but they might be better suited to your area than mine so it makes sense.

    Ok, that recipe sounds fine but I would use Rye instead of Charcoal Juice. :p

  13. That sounds like it would go good together. Last night I had a Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength with a San Cristobal El Morro.
