OldSoul_76 good reciepes.  I am a fan of teh Godfather. The amarettomixes nicely with the Sctoch.  I am not a bourbon guy.  I prefer Scotch, Irish, or Japanese whiskey to bourbon.  How do you feel about Tuaca?  I think it is an under appreciated liqour

A friend of mine recently introduced me to some older cocktails for autumn and winter - The Sazerac and the Six Cylinder. Bitters can be our friend!

It isn't about bruising. It's about the amount of ice (eventually water) that gets into the drink. A stirred drink will be drier than one that is shaken.

I always shake either way, but I don't care about bruising. I was always taught however, that anything with fruit juice should be shaken. I don't know if that applies to a dirty martini, but it definitely applies to a gimlet.

I always stir if the finished cocktail is clear. If not, I shake.

Not only I like Kettle Vodka, I have also grown fond of Crater Lake Vodka which is hand crafted in Bend Oregon.

Similar to Mike's suggestion, if you take almost any pre-90s cocktail with vodka in it and replace it with gin it instantly becomes manlier. For example: Snoop Dogg would have sounded much less manly singing about a screwdriver instead of an orange blossom.

SKYY90 is a great vodka. It is reasonably priced. Its has a very crisp and clean taste.

Manly - the origional daquiri ( A Hemingway favorite) - half rum (good rum) half lime juice over ice. Save the fruit and the umbrella for the guys over at Maxim.

Went to an Absinthe dinner last night. I had a flight of three distinct absinthes and my fiance' had "Death in the afternoon" - A Hemingway favorite - champagne and absinthe! Pretty good drink by the way!
