Thursday Drink Night . . .

So TDN was a blast, the theme was Retro Free-For-All. Here are the drinks that i made up . . .

Goulet

1 1/2 Oz Bols Genever
1 Oz Stock Orange Fernet
(sub 1/2 Gran Gala, 1/2 Fernet)
1 Oz Charbay Dessert Wine (White Port)
1/2 oz Apricot Brandy
Stir Strain into Chilled Cocktail Glass
Garnish With a Brandied Cherry

The garnish in the photo is a Lychee, but a Brandied Cherry works better. The name was inspired from Will Ferrell impersonation of Robert Goulet that was on in the background when i made the drink...

The Possum Slide

2 1/2 Oz Camus Vs
1/2 Oz Blackbery Liqueur
1/2 Oz Sweet Vermouth

Stir Strain into Chilled Cocktail Glass
2 Drop's Boker's Bitters Garnish With 3 Brandied Cherries

The name for this drink came from a possum sliding along the telephone wires in my back yard.

The Classic

2.25oz Camus VS
1/4oz Orange Fernet
(1/2 Fernet-1/2 Orange Liqueur)
1/4oz Apricot Brandy
Stir Strain into Chilled Cocktail Glass
Garnish w/Lemon Zest

i just threw out this name-- who knows why?

So if you are on the web this Thursday night, looking for a drink, come on by Thursday Drink Night [TDN]. and say hello (or if you just want to see the drinks, go here. . . -).
