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!

How can a man know that he has achieved manhood and earned the title of man?

As one who desires to honor God's decision in giving me the XY chromosome, I'm pretty curious, when has the goal of manhood been successfully achieved, when has one successfully proven that he is a man? How can a young man know, that he is a real, masculine man, God's idea of masculinity? Can a man without a girlfriend be a real man? Can he fulfill his expectations as a man without being in a relationship? Or is he trapped in childhood until he officially has a girlfriend?I have often…See More
