Jian and I just tried this cocktail recipe at home, but with a few minor substitutions. We recently ran out of Redbreast Irish Whiskey & Laphroaig 10-year Scotch. In our house, we tend to go through many bottles of whisky, whiskey, & bourbon within a relatively short amount of time…but that doesn’t mean we don’t savor or enjoy our bottles. Of course we thoroughly enjoy every single drop of each delightful brown liquor. To put things plainly: We. Drink. A. Lot.

Anyway, we were missing 2 out of the 5 ingredients for this recipe. We substituted the Irish whiskey for Gentleman’s Jack whiskey & substituted Laphroaig Scotch with Lagavulin 16-year Scotch. Ever since I introduced Jian to St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, we always keep a bottle stocked in our kitchen, so there was no substitution there. However, instead of using Death & Co.’s brand of bitters, we used a mix of Fee Brothers Orange BittersAngostura Bitters. With a twist of the lemon rind…& voilà! We made our own version of the Cooper Union cocktail, & it was deee-lish! Cheers!

Swimming in a sea of roasted beans and light conversation, what is this heady and exotic feeling washing over me? It is the soft melody of you and the sweet smell of pastry beckoning my tastebuds. Calling out to me, I draw you in. Oh coffee, you’ve bewitched me.

I definitely want to share this article about the Tom Collins cocktail written by Douglas M Ford (Cold Glass).  This is definitely an in-depth look into my all-time favorite cocktail.  Seriously, this is by far, my most favorite shaken/stirred beverage…my idea of “liquid gold”.  The recipe calls for London Dry gin, to shake your ingredients & garnish with an orange slice.  However, in my version of this delectable refreshment, I prefer No. 209 gin, to stir my ingredients & to add a wedge of lemon. (What can I say? I prefer a little tang in my drink.)  Check it out & enjoy…

Cold Glass

It’s a sweltering hot afternoon. Dewpoint high enough to fog my glasses. And my work is done. Time for a Tom Collins.

I like this old classic.
