Friday Cocktail - New York Sour

CocktailDB: The Internet Cocktail Database | New York Sour
Thanks to my friend Joe, aka Leisure Master, I've got to try the New York Sour this weekend. It's a simple classic that I've somehow missed:

2oz Bourbon or Rye
1oz Lemon Juice
1tsp sugar

Shake with ice and strain into a sour glass.


Friday Cocktail Review - Liberty

Well, I did make several versions of the liberty last weekend and none lived up to my expectations. My favorite variation used Appleton's VX for the rum, and honey syrup instead of simple syrup, but honestly this drink was a let down. Probably should have tried a little lemon juice, but I didn't have any handy at the time. Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Friday Cocktail - Liberty

LUPEC Boston: March is Women's History Month!
The fine female cocktail bloggers at LUPEC suggest sipping Liberty Cocktail in honor of Women's History Month. Consider it done.

dash of simple syrup
1 part rum
2 parts applejack

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Since they don't suggest the type of rum I checked and see a variation with light and a variation with dark rum, so I guess I'll try a few different ways. There's also a variation that adds a little lemon juice.

Friday Cocktail Review - Leap Year

Leap Year, originally uploaded by Experiment 33.

I didn't have any Gran Marnier, so I used Cointreau. I used Plymouth Gin. Overall, this was a fine drink, but a little plain. I expected to like it more. I'm pretty sure using Gran Marnier would have given it more oomph. I generally prefer Cointreau to Gran Marnier, but this drink needed a little something. There's too many other cocktails to try, so I'll probably save this one for another 4 years.
