									tiare -> OK guys and gals its TDN! who has a drink?

JohnTheBastard -> i do

tiare -> Give us!

JohnTheBastard -> Benedict's Rule:2 oz rye, 1/2 oz Benedictine, 1/4 oz Frangelico, 1/4 oz Carpano
Antica, 1 dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters, 1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters, brandied cherry for garnish.

rumdood -> Ooh, looks lovely

tiare -> Looks nice

BonzoGal -> Good name

TheDow -> Love the name.

JohnTheBastard -> i've got a few good names to throw out tonight.

TraderTiki -> as long as it's not "Vow of Silence", which has been done twenty times and then some

rumdood -> The name should be readily apparent

JohnTheBastard -> no, better than that.

JohnTheBastard -> gfd

tiare -> i love brandided cherries

tiare -> Is anybody making the drink?

BonzoGal -> John is

BonzoGal -> I'm still at work

tiare -> I cant cuz i lack ingredients

jayhepburn -> no Frangelico i'm afraid

tiare -> no

jayhepburn -> or antica, shockingly enough, i ran out a few days ago

tiare -> and no carpano either, is it sold in the UK?

tiare -> is, its not here

jayhepburn -> yeah, it's not cheap (£20-£25) but it's worth it

tiare -> Ok, i have a drink too, for those who can:

tiare -> GINGER PUNCH - 2 oz appleton extra, 0.5 orange curacao, 0.5 oz benedictine, ¼ orgeat, 1 oz
pineapple juice, ginger ale to top. Shake and serve with crushed ice.

jayhepburn -> you always get me with the juices! sounds lovely though

tiare -> its just pineapple juice...

jayhepburn -> i only ever keep lemon, lime and orange in, i use pineapple very, very rarely
BonzoGal -> Yeah Jay, go out to your pineapple tree and pick one!

BonzoGal -> You live on an island, right?

tiare -> jay..pineapple juice is one of lifes staples! you need to learn that ;-))

jayhepburn -> hehe

sylvan -> I froze a bunch in ice cube trays to make serving size dollops that don't spoil

JohnTheBastard -> bwd. am i the only one.

tiare -> Dood!

BonzoGal -> How is the drink, John?

JohnTheBastard -> I like it.

JohnTheBastard -> enough that i will probably make it in the future. its a pretty nice variation on the

JohnTheBastard -> i shook it though, instead of stirred. this one needs to be as cold as you can get it.

tiare -> Do we need more drinks?

JohnTheBastard -> generally speaking, yes

tiare -> So who has one?

TheDow -> Always.

JohnTheBastard -> i just went, but have more if no one else has one.

BonzoGal -> Go for it

rumdood -> Go JTB

JohnTheBastard -> Monk's Mistress: 2 oz Brandy, 1/3 oz B & B, 1/3 oz Godiva, 1/3 oz Cointreau, 2
dashes Cherry Bitters

drink-well -> aww, come on. cherry?

drink-well -> you've bested me

rumdood -> You could probably sub rhubarb

JohnTheBastard -> you dont like cherry bitters? or peach

JohnTheBastard -> or orange if you have to.

TheDow -> blasted orange bitters eluding my grasp.

JohnTheBastard -> but its already got cointreau, so orange bitters probably won't be bringing much new
to the party.

tiare -> what about angostura?

drink-well -> has anybody succeeded with the live video?

JohnTheBastard -> looked too dark to see.
BonzoGal -> they're not broadcasting yet, not 'til 6pm EST

drink-well -> EST?

tiare -> yeah, but if thats what you have apart from orange and grapefruit and falernum and dry fly bitters?

BonzoGal -> Er, 9pm

drink-well -> ahh

BonzoGal -> Tiare, dry fly?

tiare -> thats one of trader tikis bitters

JohnTheBastard -> i'd do one dash orange, one dash angostura, t.

JohnTheBastard -> what does dry fly taste like?

JohnTheBastard -> any relation to dry fly gin?

tiare -> i suppose so, i havent tried the gin, the bitters taste its hard to describe, its um..herby and very

sylvan ->

tiare -> herbal

tiare -> lol

sylvan -> well, I'm off home and then to Craig's. See you all later.

tiare -> later sylvan

JohnTheBastard -> later sylvan

tiare -> So who else has a drink?

BonzoGal -> What about gin?

tiare -> Hi junkhauler

junkhauler -> hello, the broadcast starts at 9m eastern?

BonzoGal -> Yep

junkhauler -> gotta figure out what to drink

junkhauler -> tiare, what are you drinking

tiare -> now? my glass is empty for the moment

BonzoGal -> Okay, off the top of my noggin here at work: 2 oz gin, 1 oz St. Germain's, 1/2 oz
Benedictine, 1/2 oz. lemon juice?

drink-well -> wow, a full ounce?

tiare -> name Michele?

BonzoGal -> Yeah, what the hell
BonzoGal -> the Maximo

drink-well -> nice

JohnTheBastard -> up next, minimo.

BonzoGal -> Heh

JohnTheBastard -> with 1/32 oz st. germain's

BonzoGal -> Maybe cut down the St. Germain's a bit, but dang, I like that stuff

JohnTheBastard -> aparently it has a short shelf life, so might as well use it with abandon.

BonzoGal -> Woohoo!

junkhauler -> st germain's does, do not think i realized that

JohnTheBastard -> yeah, its not really advertized, but some early adopters are complaining their's is
changing color and losing its flavor a bit.

rumdood -> Hi Reese

Reese -> Sup Dood

JohnTheBastard -> probly want to use it withing 9-12 months of opening.

tiare -> Hi and welcome!

junkhauler -> good to know, something to consider when buying more as well

JohnTheBastard -> i'm gunna make a monk's mistress. gfd.

junkhauler -> ooops, gotta go looking forward to this evening

jayhepburn -> considering it's pretty low proof it's fairly stable... most low-proof liqueurs you're not going
to want have hanging around too long

tiare -> I have to wait a little with making drinks now, as everyone here is just gone to sleep and all lights
are off, unfortunately someone is sleeping in the living room just beside the kitchen and there is no door

BonzoGal -> Make them sleep outside!

BonzoGal -> Don't they know it's TDN?!?

tiare -> luckily i dont start to work until after lunch tomorrow

rumdood -> Use them as a barstool.

rumdood -> Or better yet, as the bar!

tiare -> yeah i told em...

BonzoGal -> Yeah!

BonzoGal -> Besides, hearing ice being crushed makes for nice dreams.

tiare -> "make them sleep outside" haha..and put up a big sign on the dorr "TDN"

tiare -> Dood you made the nicest tiki drink for the month, dont you have anything for tonight?
BonzoGal -> Just go in the bathroom to make your drinks and flush the toilet every time you use your

tiare -> lol

rumdood -> Fraid not, T. I'm still at work and didn't concoct anything head of time

tiare -> Hello marshall'

Marshall -> Hey T!

Reese -> Welcome Marshall

rumdood -> Hiya Marshall

tiare -> what? you cant make drinks at work?

Marshall -> Thanks Reese! 'Sup Matt!

rumdood -> The only drink I've ever created at work was the Italian Woodsman

rumdood -> And that was really just to see if Rick would really drink anything with Fernet in it

tiare -> lol

Reese -> So, I have a drink, but I'm not in love with it. Flavors feel a bit muddled to me. Any thoughts?
(1 1/2 oz Brandy, 1 oz Grapefruit Juice, 1/2 oz Benedictine, 1/4 oz Lemon Juice, 2 Dashes Grapefruit

rumdood -> The results of my research were troubling to say the least

tiare -> Do you have a name for it Reese?

Reese -> Not yet...

rumdood -> I think Reese is looking for help to strengthen it first

Reese -> Indeed

rumdood -> Suggestions?

rumdood -> Cut the grapefruit by 1/2?

Marshall -> strega!

tiare -> doesnt it need something a bit sweet, just a little? maybe honey?

rumdood -> Or jsut plain simple

Reese -> No, the grapefruit and benedictine is making it plenty sweet

Reese -> I added the lemon for some extra sourness which helped a lot

BonzoGal -> Maybe a different bitter?

BonzoGal -> Or none?

rumdood -> You could up the lemon or try it again with lime

BonzoGal -> Lime!
Reese -> Ok, I'm going to mix another with less grapefruit and more lime (rather than lemon)

Reese -> Back in a couple.

rumdood -> Sometimes when working out a drink I find that just switching from lemon to lime or vice
versa makes a huge difference

Reese -> Thanks for the tips :)

Reese -> Good tip Dood

tiare -> limes are more aromatic

tiare -> and less sour

BonzoGal -> Yeah, the lemons we have on our trees are really sweet, so lime is a huge difference for me.

JohnTheBastard -> so dar, all my efforts to combine benedictine and lemon have been failures.

JohnTheBastard -> oh, bwd.

rumdood -> And once again, the great debate about lemons vs. limes begins anew

drink-well -> Anybody familiar with Dolin? I'm trying to decide which to go with.

Marshall -> I'm a big fan of the Dolin!

JohnTheBastard -> i generally prefer lim to lemon, but there are definitely drinks where lemon works

TheDow -> We were talking about that earlier when I was asking about Vermouths.

drink-well -> which variety

JohnTheBastard -> i think lemon works better with whiskeys than lime.

rumdood ->

Marshall -> all :p

rumdood -> John, totally agree

drink-well -> i was thinking of going with the dry, but seanmike suggests it gets overwhelmed in cocktails

BonzoGal -> Stevi!

Marshall -> Their Blanc is fantastic stuff. Pour over ice with a float of Old Tom . . . nomnomnom*hic

stevideter -> howdy, all.

tiare -> Hi Stevi!

Marshall -> Hey Stevi!

BonzoGal -> Heh, oops, I was trying to type Stevi...

Marshall -> errr, how did that i get there . .

BonzoGal -> Hey!
rumdood -> Hi Stevi

stevideter -> i can has word replacement

BonzoGal -> Gabe punked you!

rumdood -> OK, I have to run, chillinz

JohnTheBastard -> later dood

stevideter -> b'bye dood of rum.

Marshall -> Later Matt!

BonzoGal -> Bye!

tiare -> later

drink-well -> bye dood

rumdood -> Toodles

Marshall -> So what's been going on with the Monkey Hut? I've got Craig's mug all up in my grill and
stuff. :)

JohnTheBastard -> regarding the monk's mistress: up the godiva to about 1/2 oz, reduce the cointreau to

tiare -> the webcam starts at 9pm est

BonzoGal -> Monkey Hut bizznezz not starting 'til later

Marshall -> ahhhhh, gotcha.

JohnTheBastard -> i wish liqueur makers would release alternate versions of their products with no sugar.

Reese -> Changes vastly improved my drink.

tiare -> OK John

JohnTheBastard -> i need to make an orange infused something that is dry.

Marshall -> drink-well, I can see what Sean says about the Dolin dry. It's still pretty tasty stuff.

JohnTheBastard -> but dont know where to find exotic orange skins

tiare -> What about Reeses drink, is the recipe ready?

drink-well -> thanks

Reese -> New recipe is: 1 1/2 oz Brandy, 1/2 oz Benedictine, 1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice, 1/2 oz Lemon Juice

tiare -> and name pls...

Reese -> Un pimento...thinking.

drink-well -> Marshall do you happen to know if the rouge would go well in a manhattan?

tiare -> pimento what?
Reese -> Sorry, bad word play on un momento.

JohnTheBastard -> pimento=momento

JohnTheBastard -> minute or moment, in spanish

tiare -> lol :}

Marshall -> yep, I've had a Manhattan made with the rouge and was quite happy.

JohnTheBastard -> anyone else get mekhong in the mail this week?

drink-well -> Thanks for the info. I think I'll go for the rouge.

Marshall -> No prob, glad to be of assistance.

Reese -> Negatory John

Reese -> Any good?

JohnTheBastard -> between the Monk's Mistress and the Benedictine Rule, i think the latter is the
superior drink.

Reese -> The name has been decided....

Reese -> The Surly Hobo: 1 1/2 oz Brandy, 1/2 oz Benedictine, 1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice, 1/2 oz Lemon

BonzoGal -> lol!

drink-well -> nice.

TheDow -> Alrighty folks. Trip to BevMo commences now. See you all l8er.

tiare -> tweeted

drink-well -> clearly the grapefruit

drink-well -> hobos love grapefruit

drink-well -> seeya later dow

JohnTheBastard -> lolwut

BonzoGal -> Oh, right! How could I miss that.

drink-well -> i have no idea

tiare -> later Dow

Reese -> Dunno, brandy always makes me think cheap brandy which leads to hobos.

drink-well -> still a good name though

drink-well -> ahh. E&J

Reese -> Although I think Drink-Well's logic is sound as well.

tiare -> If no one else has another drink i have one
JohnTheBastard -> do it.

Reese -> Straight up John?

tiare -> PEACHY LADY - 1.5 oz B&B, 0.5 oz lime juice, ¼ oz simple syrup, 1 egg white.1 barspoon
peach puree, 2 dashes Angostura bitters. Shake, strain, Serve on the rocks.

Reese -> Oh wow, that sounds tasty Tiare.

drink-well -> that does sound good

JohnTheBastard -> stutz, i was going to get some peach nectar for a drink for TDN and was liek "no one
will have that, i'm not buying any."

BonzoGal -> I wish peaches were in season now.

JohnTheBastard -> i wish peaches were in season always

tiare -> maybe you can use apricot?

BonzoGal -> You mean "no one will have that EXCEPT FOR TIARE" ;)

JohnTheBastard -> i dont have any puree/nectars.

tiare -> i sometimes get my fruit purees from the child food shelf

JohnTheBastard -> yes, i should count on tiare for exotic juices

drink-well -> really?

BonzoGal -> I have passionfruit in the freezer at home

Reese -> Not a bad idea, smaller quantities that way

drink-well -> you mean babyfood?

BonzoGal -> Tiare, that's a really good idea!

tiare -> yes

BonzoGal -> I'm going to check the babyfood aisle at my health food store

drink-well -> that's pretty ingenius

tiare -> its pure fruit purees in those little cans

JohnTheBastard -> nice. thats brilliant

Reese -> +1 for Tiare

drink-well -> how has it taken you this long to clue us in?

Marshall -> That is an awesome tip Tiare!

drink-well -> +10 for Tiare

tiare -> childfood here we come!

napplegate -> oh my!
Reese -> Hi there Napple

napplegate -> greetings!

tiare -> Hi Napple

BonzoGal -> It'll freak my husband out if I stock up our cabinets with jars of baby food.

BonzoGal -> "What the...?"

Marshall -> Leave little booties around the house too!

tiare -> inks are here:

napplegate -> whats the magical ingredient tonight?

BonzoGal -> Benedictine or B&B

drink-well -> i think with a preference for B&B, correct?

Reese -> You mean here:

tiare -> yes, sorry

napplegate -> i always come ill prepared :o

JohnTheBastard -> i dont think b&B is as useful. i can dilute myself when need be.

Reese -> Hi Forrest

Reese -> I concur John

stevideter -> ready for another drink?

forrest -> Hi Reese!!

tiare -> Hi Forrest!

JohnTheBastard -> but CSOWG got b&B in the mail, so a lot of people have that tonight.

forrest -> Howdy tiare!!

tiare -> Go Stevi, you aleays have good drinks

stevideter -> Brandied Cherry: equal parts rye, B&B, and cherry Heering. stir, strain, garnish with drink's

BonzoGal -> Nice!

Marshall -> That sounds quite tasty Stevi!

tiare -> Nice one S.t.e.v.i

Reese -> I like it. The spiciness of the Rye sounds like a good addition

forrest -> Hey Stevi you should submit that here:

stevideter -> anybody gonna try it?

tiare -> Stevi, ill tr`y yours, gfd
BonzoGal -> I will when I get home

forrest -> they are having a cocktail contest

JohnTheBastard -> still working on my last drink

BonzoGal -> Heading out to my ride home, back later!

tiare -> later Bonzo!

Reese -> Anyone have an idea how to complete this equation 1 oz Benedictine + X oz Brandy ~= B&B?

Reese -> Later Bonzo

JohnTheBastard -> my guess is 1:1 but havent tried to verify that

forrest -> Bye Bonzo

Reese -> That's what I was thinking but don't have any B&B with which to compare.

forrest -> Reese i am with John, but i dont know

Marshall -> It isn't straight 1:1, I think they add a few extra botanicals/sweetners in the mix

Reese -> Interesting

forrest -> Marshall i dont think so

JohnTheBastard -> wiki says its just a dilution of benedictine with brandy. it was released because that
was a popular way to drink benedictine at one time.

drink-well -> somebody have boh available?

forrest -> i talked with an international rep, and they said they just added brandy after the "B&B" became
so popular

drink-well -> i smell a science experiment

drink-well -> both*

forrest -> brb

stevideter -> i have both on hand, but you have the extra variable of what brandy they actually use.

stevideter -> and i could have sworn I read somewhere they age it again after adding the brandy to the
benedictine, but now i can't find where i saw that.

JohnTheBastard -> my suspicion is that your brandy is better than theirs, another reason i think straight
benedictine is the better ingredient to have on hand.

Marshall -> interesting, I've never been able to dilute Benedictine with brandy and get the same flavor
profile. wonder about the quality of the brandy.

drink-well -> i'd just use a cheap brandy and try 1:1, 2:1, and 1:2 to get a strong approximation

napplegate -> they say its a vsop

Marshall -> I agree John, I would much rather have benedictine and mix B&B myself.
drink-well -> but that's a pretty broad designation flavor-profile-wise

napplegate -> i find a nice courvasier vsop and benedictine is a good nightcap imo

tiare -> bwd, its nice stevi

drink-well -> its iStev

drink-well -> :)

forrest -> Stevi, i was serious about entering your drink here:

forrest -> Stevi

stevideter -> stevi, now certified for web 2.0

forrest -> What is happening?

stevideter -> word replacement fun. like vodka.

forrest -> oh, lame

drink-well -> stevi word replaces?

drink-well -> ahh

drink-well -> had to try

stevideter -> rumdood typed my name as "iStev" once (not sure if that was accidentally, actually) and the
reset is history.

forrest -> the reset

drink-well -> somebody reset history

stevideter -> heh.

stevideter -> that site is dog slow.

JohnTheBastard -> does anyone remember when Hennessy released the single distillery cognacs a few
years back? they bottled cognacs from some small producers that couldnt afford international
distribution. Le Peu, Izambard, and Camp Romain. I found the remnants from when I bought them while
visiting my parents. I was astounded at how much better they were than other brandies on the market.
Easily beath out of any VSOP from the major houses, and sold at about the same price back in the day.

tiare -> I like your drink Stevi

stevideter -> thanks, tiare!

stevideter -> howdy, jay!

Marshall -> Hey Jay!

tiare -> I always have too much juices in my drinks..

jayhepburn -> sorry, got caught up in phone call - stevi's drink sounds lovely, will be making that in a
second i think

tiare -> yeah, its nice jay
forrest -> hey Jay

jayhepburn -> i've never had b&b, not sure they even sell it here. was most surprised when a bottle
turned up

forrest -> must be nice

tiare -> lucky you, i dont have it but i sub with equal parts ben and brandy

forrest -> i dont know what wslcb is

stevideter -> washington state liquor control board.

tiare -> sounds serious

stevideter -> they've made benedictine special order.

JohnTheBastard -> up until about a year ago, ialways thought B&B was a cheap knockoff of benedictine.
like gran gala is to grand marnier

stevideter -> meanwhile B&B is everywhere.

forrest -> Well if they are sending stuff out, i'd love to offer my address even thought it is out of state

jayhepburn -> yeah that's crazy, i'd much rather have the real stuff and make my own b&b if i really
wanted to

forrest -> we have both at my work, but they are spendy

JohnTheBastard -> speaking of spendy, i am out of chartreuse.

stevideter -> i'm going to regret not sucking it up and buying the 750 ml bottle of green chartreuse when i
saw it.

napplegate -> chartreuse is getting close to edging out gin as my favorite spirit

napplegate -> CRAZY TALK I KNOW

JohnTheBastard -> thats an odd statement

forrest -> Now that is a big statement napple

stevideter -> chartreuse is one of the very hip liqueurs here in the seattle area at the moment.

stevideter -> everybody has the widow's kiss or a variant on their menu right now.

stevideter -> this is not a complaint.

napplegate -> i think its not the applicability of it but the fact that fun follows it everytime i drink it

JohnTheBastard -> sort of like saying nitrogen is edging out oxygen as my favorite gas.

forrest -> i love Chartr, just not as versatile-- but it is yumms

jayhepburn -> oh the widow's kiss is a lovely drink

forrest -> brb
napplegate -> flaming chartreuse shots, pickled eggs and every type of amazing beer you could think of
has become my tuesday rhetoric

stevideter -> flaming? why you flame the chartreuse? what did it do to you?

Marshall -> flaming chartreuse shots you say . . . I like your message and want to purchase your

JohnTheBastard -> i like to imageine that when napplegate says something, its christina applegate typing,
and christina is actually her middle name, her first name is actually nancy, and she enjoys chatting on the
internet about cocktails.

napplegate -> haha, that was quite the random addage

jayhepburn -> what's Houston like as a city, is there much of interest as a tourist? I'm trying to work out
my route to totc this year...

drink-well -> oops

JohnTheBastard -> houston has good restaurants. thats the only positive thing i can say about it.

napplegate -> i dont think chartreuse will ever be campy

jayhepburn -> bobby has his new bar openning soon, but i need more of a reason to visit a city than one
bar. not much more, in fairness, but something

JohnTheBastard -> if you are going through texas, austin and san antonio are better places to spend your

forrest -> Jay skip Houston

napplegate -> for me its a shot spirit as most bars where i live dont carry it and the ones that do certaily
arent places for a cocktail

jayhepburn -> just asking as it's an easy through-flight. i've a feeling i'll end up in nyc again

JohnTheBastard -> yeah, my dad took a job in houston is the reason they live there. my dad is from, and
loves, texas, but even he doesnt really like houston.

forrest -> Houston airport blows, almost as much as Dallas

JohnTheBastard -> i was hoping anvil would be open on my last trip, but sadly, that wasnt the case.

Marshall -> Houston will have The Anvil opening soon. That's Bobby Heugel's place.

stevideter -> jay -- seattle! seattle! seattle!

forrest -> Bobby who??

tiare -> drinkdogma

Marshall ->

tiare -> blog

jayhepburn -> stevi, i wanna do the west coast asap, but it's not really on the way to nola from here... ;-)

JohnTheBastard -> i did meet some of those guys on my previous trip and saw the inside of the bar they
were working on at the time.
Marshall -> Jay, you could always hit DC!

stevideter -> but as long as you made it as far as NOLA...

jayhepburn -> yeah i was thinking that marshall

JohnTheBastard -> anyone ready for another drink?

tiare -> yes we are..arent we?

JohnTheBastard -> can i go, or is it someones turn?

tiare -> i think you can go

JohnTheBastard -> ok

JohnTheBastard -> Broken Habit: 2 oz Bourbon, 1/2 oz Benedictine, 1/2 oz Apricot Brandy, 3/4 oz lime
juice, 1 egg white, 5 dashes Peach Bitters. top with 3 oz soda water

JohnTheBastard -> there is a pun in the name here, though its a bit oblique.

stevideter -> got a suggested apricot brandy for that?

JohnTheBastard -> Apry

JohnTheBastard -> is there another you like?

forrest -> Orchard Apricot

forrest -> Hauz Alpenz

stevideter -> i also like orchard apricot, but it' lighter and brighter

JohnTheBastard -> i dont know if that makes its way to oregon...

JohnTheBastard -> not that brizard does either.

forrest -> Lighter in body and a cleaner finish

JohnTheBastard -> i bought that in houston, about 4 blocks from anvil, actually.

JohnTheBastard -> okay, gfd.

drink-well -> gf ingredients

drink-well -> :)

Marshall -> Hey Jake!

forrest -> Hey jparrott

samuraibartender -> Hey all

stevideter -> and there he is...

forrest -> Samurai!

Marshall -> Hey Samurai!
jparrott -> evening folks...just dropping by for a few...eaarrrrrrrrrly mtg tomorrow and no prep done by me

samuraibartender -> sorry Im late

tiare -> Hiya Chris!

samuraibartender -> Konbonwa!

tiare -> what language is that?

samuraibartender -> japanese

samuraibartender -> ; )

tiare -> :}

samuraibartender -> Konbonwa = "Good Evening"

tiare -> Bon soir

JohnTheBastard -> actually, i lied. i'm going to hydrate for a while. make the drink in a bit.

tiare -> Hi deviator!

forrest -> hey Deviator

deviator -> hi tiare, forrest!

deviator -> how is the benedictining going?

Marshall -> Heya Deviator

forrest -> i'm sidelined tonight

JohnTheBastard -> somewhat uncooperative, but it definitely has its merits.

deviator -> hi Marshall

deviator -> I wonder if there's a trick to getting the live MonkeyHutInExile feed...

tiare ->

tiare -> we hope the webcam starts 20 min

forrest -> what webcam?

deviator -> OooOOoOoOOOoh

deviator -> tiare: your Ginger Punch looks like a winner. :)

samuraibartender -> several of these look awesome - any recommendations?

tiare -> thanks!

tiare -> try stevis

samuraibartender -> will do

JohnTheBastard -> of those i submitted, i would do Benedict's Rule first. I haven't tried the others.
Marshall ->

samuraibartender -> JohnTheBastard - th sounds like a deliciously nutty manhattan

tiare -> bamboo!

JohnTheBastard -> yeah, its basically a fancified manhattan.

Dr. Bamboo -> Hi-dee-ho, gang!

Marshall -> What's up Doc!

samuraibartender -> heya 'Doc

tiare -> What a hell of a drawing you made in your last post !

Dr. Bamboo -> Thanks Tiare!

JohnTheBastard -> ho-o-o dee ho dee ho dee ho

tiare -> and fun post too

forrest -> JohnTheBastard nice review on Citadelle Res

samuraibartender -> gfd - Stevi's AND John's, cause I'm thirsty & can't decide...

Dr. Bamboo -> glad you liked it :-)

tiare -> it was very unusual and also very useful and then fun too

tiare -> and then it reminded me of when i moved my home bar

Dr. Bamboo -> That was a good photo...and what my liquor closet looks like most of the time.

JohnTheBastard -> thanks forrest

forrest -> JohnTheBastard the Citadelle is a hot ticket around here also ( a 1.75 is $29ish)

tiare -> heh

Dr. Bamboo -> I keep thinking I'll organize it, but it never really happens.

JohnTheBastard -> damn, wish i could get 1.75 for $29

tiare -> no of course not, not here either

forrest -> and then there is the Ferrand Cognacs, and Plantation Runs that rock from the same place

TheMonkeyHut -> Live feed starting in 10 mintes

forrest -> JohnTheBastard then you'd have to drink it!!!

TheMonkeyHut -> and minutes

JohnTheBastard -> i go through a fifth of citadelle in about 3-4 weeks, typically.

forrest -> Think about your poor little freezer

jayhepburn -> stevi this drink is rather nice. i used a lemon zest twist to brighten it a little, but i like it.
lovely colour too
forrest -> 3-4 weeks?? i thought you said you liked it?!?!

JohnTheBastard -> heh, yeah. i dont actually drink that much though. TDN makes up about 60% of my
booze consumption in a typical week.

forrest -> well lade dah

forrest -> see Stevi-- i told you

tiare -> TDN has good effects on people

JohnTheBastard -> plymouth works best in some drinks, and if its something that needs gin but is going
to kill complexity, i use bellringer ($13/fifth)

forrest -> Well gang you can count on tiare and i, we will do our part drinking, right t!!

tiare -> heh..

tiare -> but i have a tough working day tomorrow

JohnTheBastard -> after lunch

forrest -> oh j/k

stevideter -> jayhepburn the twist is an excellent suggestion.

forrest -> brb

samuraibartender -> bwd - John, as I threw a cherry into stevi's I tried something different in yours - a
grate of Nutmeg...mighty tasty

samuraibartender -> Stevi...likewise on thw twist, but also really nice

JohnTheBastard -> not a bad idea.

JohnTheBastard -> i need to make a nutmeg liqueur.

samuraibartender -> mind the poison

JohnTheBastard -> meh

stevideter -> anu apte brought some saffron syrup back from India and now I totally need to get me some.

samuraibartender -> what was it T? ~ 5 tsp will make you ill?

samuraibartender -> stevideter is it just simple with saffron or other things?

stevideter -> i think it was just simple and saffron, but i'll have to ask her.

Reese -> Hi Greg

drinks maybe?

samuraibartender -> what'd you two use it in?

Dr. Bamboo -> Hey monkey crowd!

JohnTheBastard -> half a cucumber?

drink-well -> yeah

JohnTheBastard -> thats a lot of cuke.

drink-well -> it largely gets strained

drink-well -> if it's a large cucumber use 1/3 or so

drink-well -> it is pretty cuke heavy though

Dr. Bamboo -> Neato!

samuraibartender -> right yeah - I think John wanted to make a nutmeg liqueur

JohnTheBastard -> nutmeg

samuraibartender -> I recall you posting about it making one ill

JohnTheBastard -> is it still toxic if you boil it?

tiare -> nutmeg is poisonous if you use too much of it,

samuraibartender -> wanted to check about how much

forrest -> Nutmeg is supposed to have halucinagenic properties

forrest -> brb

tiare -> check the web

Greg Boehm -> Nutmeg State!

JohnTheBastard -> you have to eat a lit to get ill from it

tiare -> yeah, normal consuption doesnt harm you

SeanMike -> I've got a drink when people are ready

tiare -> we are ready

samuraibartender -> I'd almost say you could make a liqueur from less than 5 tsp...a whole nutmeg won't
make that much ground up and I put two (whole) into double batches of falernum...

tiare -> are we?

SeanMike -> (looks around)

drink-well -> i suppose

Reese -> I'm ready to mix up another, hit us SeanMike

tiare -> go for it SM

Dr. Bamboo -> cukes. I wanna try the Gimdom.

Pegudoug -> Any fun stuff?

stevideter -> ok, i will now share with you a drink you should not make.

SeanMike -> okay - BEAN TEA: Make a mug of strong tea (I'm using one standard mug with a bag each
of Constant Comment and English Teatime). Add in 2 oz. B&B, 3/4 oz vanilla simple syrup, 1/2 oz lemon
juice. If not vanilla ismple syrup, use regular and a couple of drops of vanilla extract

tiare -> how can you forget the TDN?

SeanMike -> garnish with a vanilla bean, and if you have it, a bit of hazelnut whipped cream

Pegudoug -> Well, I am SUPPOSED to be at Poker night....

Pegudoug -> I DO have to pay the mortgage.

Pegudoug -> SeanMike That sounds good.

samuraibartender -> that does

JohnTheBastard -> i generally have hazelnut whipped cream on hand, but am fresh out at the moment.

Marshall -> Oh, hey SeanMike, Doug

SeanMike -> I just got in from a cold walk from 4Ps and thought it would warm me up nicely

SeanMike -> heya Marshall

forrest -> i do have some kumquat Whip, with corriander do think that will sub?

drink-well -> Dr. Bamboo, it's decent without the cuke, just not quite as smooth. Any celery bitters? A
couple drops of that with a little bit more dillution might do it

JohnTheBastard -> gfd (broken habit).

stevideter -> don't be tempted to try gosling's black seal, B&B, and lime juice. it's...ick.

tiare -> SM...your drink required 4 tweets..
drink-well -> twitter is all aflutter

forrest -> Really Stevi?? sounds like there would be poss. there

tiare -> you owe me a beer

drink-well -> for those interested, the live show has "started" more or less

stevideter -> i thought so, but it was bad enough i sinked it instead of tinkering.

forrest -> beer? oh a ginger beer right?

Pegudoug -> And I have only just begun!

napplegate -> i cant say anything negative about tiki drinks or bolts of lightening will shoot out of my
screen i fear

Pegudoug -> Even if I did have to timeout for Judge

Pegudoug -> Bork this AM...

drink-well -> they're making the maximo

samuraibartender -> ; )

drink-well -> live

SeanMike -> So - is the TheMonkeyHut actually DOING anything? Or just cuddling? did they get the

JohnTheBastard -> also, i can hear people, but cant see jack shit

tiare -> lol

Marshall -> blogtv is free to sign up

Reese -> Yeah, the hut could use a bit of studio lighting

stevideter -> but whyfor two chats? too confusing.
SeanMike -> yeah

tiare -> i think its better with one chat - here

SeanMike -> should keep chat over here :)

samuraibartender -> napplegate I tried that maybe a year ago, botched it HORRIBLY

drink-well -> john, you should create an account. they're free

napplegate -> hmm

JohnTheBastard -> ill just chat here... and listen to cocktail shakers shaking...

SeanMike -> who keeps looking into the camera? Is that Morgenthaler? Did he have a surprise surgery?

samuraibartender -> speaking of coffee, does anyone have Turkish coffe or Espresso about?

JohnTheBastard -> anyway, made the broken habit. think it would be better without benedictine. kinda
defeats the purpose.

Reese -> Hi Junk

Dr. Bamboo -> Tell 'em to light the tiki torches in the Monkey Hut. :-)

Marshall -> if there's a pool nearby, I'll hazard a guess where J.Mo is . ..

tiare -> ok

JohnTheBastard -> make the Benedict's Rule instead. its much better!

JohnTheBastard -> bastards!

JohnTheBastard -> umm...amaretto?

drink-well -> How could you not have amaretto?

Reese -> Would your above comment be a meta-bastarding?

SeanMike -> where are they BTW? Someone's house? a bar? in a gutter?

Dr. Bamboo -> For the love of Pete...I don't have a single lime in this place!

samuraibartender -> If anyone's got Turkish coffe or espresso (or like T, good coffe that you can brew
STRONG) get it going for a warm drink ; )

drink-well -> Do you have cucumber?

Ouroboros -> sylvan notes "peanuts aren't nuts at all"

Marshall -> Craig's basement

JohnTheBastard -> what should they use instead of frangelico?

Greg Boehm -> back

samuraibartender -> noyeau maybe? sort of?

JohnTheBastard -> do it!

drink-well -> nocino?

deviator -> noyeau would be good

tiare -> wb greg

stevideter -> i think i used my last lime for the drink i sinked.

stevideter -> and i'm not happy with the boissiere at all.

Greg Boehm -> boca would be good

Reese -> I used Noilly and Ypioca, very pleased.

when you hold them like babies"

junkhauler -> bedazzler, awesome

TheMonkeyHut -> The Bedizzle: 1 oz El Dorado 15, 1 oz Lemon Hart 151, 1/2 oz Grapefruit juice, 1/2 oz

Reese -> That was beard-tastic!

SeanMike -> so - Craig - do you play for Metallica?

cocktailnerd -> bwd's

TheMonkeyHut -> Yma sumac going on here

deviator -> yay for Yma Sumac

cocktailnerd -> Brandied Cherry: Great use of rye in a dessert-style drink that keeps from being overly
sweet and tacky

deviator -> t the only thing that would make it better is an illuminated Tiki Room fountain

Greg Boehm -> Brandied Cherry works

cocktailnerd -> too tart

Greg Boehm -> my doggie is even licking up what I spilled and then in approval had a sneezing fit

cocktailnerd -> heheh
SeanMike -> here's a new one because I'm easily distracted

tiare -> heh

cocktailnerd -> no greater praise

SeanMike -> The B&B&B: 1.5 ounces bourbon (Maker's Mark), 1 ounce B&B, 1/2 ounce simple syrup (I
used vanilla), 1-2 dashes whiskey barrel bitters. Shake like crazy, garnish with a lemon twist.

cocktailnerd -> that looks like it has promise, SM

cocktailnerd -> unlike your love life

SeanMike -> it's a bit sweet the way I made it

SeanMike -> but i like it that way

deviator -> hmm, I sucked down that appledictine pretty quickly.

SeanMike -> well, you know Gabe, my love life's only promise is your mom

SeanMike -> and having to share her with everyone else does get sloppy

cocktailnerd -> that was a long way to go for that one, SM

Dr. Bamboo -> SeanMike, does it absolutely have to be maker's?

cocktailnerd -> Who is twittering right now?

SeanMike -> I just put up what I used

samuraibartender -> back...this isn't too shabby

SeanMike -> I think the Maker's is kind of sweet, so you might want to use a sweeter bourbon

cocktailnerd -> which one, chris?

samuraibartender -> totally right with the peel AREvers

cocktailnerd -> four roses

SeanMike -> though with the simple, you could maybe try Bulleit or something like that

cocktailnerd -> is what I'll use for it SM

samuraibartender -> mine, the Le Grande

Dr. Bamboo -> Gotcha. That's exactly what I've got.

tiare -> I`m twittering

cocktailnerd -> we should all taste test whatever julep Morgey is submitting to Tales

cocktailnerd -> thanks T

tiare -> Marleigh you are after stevi

Greg Boehm -> explain Gabe

junkhauler -> sounds like hills, think i had it at a tasting, but it was 6th in line

junkhauler -> absinthe

cocktailnerd -> We (like, Rick, myself, and you know whoever has a strong opinion) will collect a group of
4-6 top contenders

cocktailnerd -> and then put a poll up on Friday AM on the Mixo blog

SeanMike -> able to make what?

cocktailnerd -> B&B&B

stevideter -> i think i will try that after i finish my current.

drink-well -> bwd: surly hobo

SeanMike -> I promised to make a gindom next but i'm so goddamned lazy

cocktailnerd -> xiphias needs to join us

Reese -> Thoughts Drink-Well?

cocktailnerd -> INDEED SIR!

drink-well -> citrus is just slightly overpowering

Reese -> I'm thinking it's drinkable but not optimal.

drink-well -> quite sour

drink-well -> but tasty

Dr. Bamboo -> BWD. Hey Marleigh!

drink-well -> maybe a small bump of brandy

Reese -> I think I had a weak-sauce grapefruit
cocktailnerd -> "quite sour" is correct

drink-well -> like another 1/4 ounce

cocktailnerd -> do eet Monkey Hut!

tiare -> Can you write it down?

Dr. Bamboo -> SeanMike- me likey. I used plain simple, but I can see why you like it w/ vanilla.

Greg Boehm -> Reese, which book do you want to reward you for being a genius?

Reese -> Thanks for the tips gents, that was the first recipe I created on my own. Need more practice I
think :)

nerdling -> Hey Doc B!

stevideter -> that's what we're here for! practice!

Reese -> Whatever suits you Greg. The only one I have that you sell is the UK version of Vintage
Cocktails and Spirits

Greg Boehm -> ok

samuraibartender -> Reese - Harry Johnson

Greg Boehm -> ok, Harry Johnson it is

Reese -> What the Ronin said :)

Dr. Bamboo -> Marleigh, i showed my mother-in-law our Super Bowl text history and she thought it was

samuraibartender -> well, thats just my 2 cents ; )

nerdling -> heh heh

nerdling -> I am pretty hilarious when drunk and watching football ;)

stevideter -> ok, my turn yet?

drink-well -> go for it

stevideter -> Sorcière - 1 oz Strega, 1 oz B&B, 1 oz while rum, 1/2 oz orgeat, shake, strain into absinthe-
rinsed glass

cocktailnerd -> go stevi

samuraibartender -> love the name...and a strega monster eh?

samuraibartender -> tempting

stevideter -> probably can cut back on the orgeat if you want to reduce sweetness.

cocktailnerd -> ok, making the Sorciere

SeanMike -> you know, when no one is sitting in front of the computer, I feel kind of like a creepy
voyeaur. It helps me sympathize with Gabe
SeanMike -> where's my trench coat?

deviator -> AT THIS POINT MY TASTE BUDS ARE SHOT: 1.5oz white rum (cruzan), .5 oz benedictine,
.5 oz campari, .5 oz lemon juice, shaken over ice, strain

deviator -> hmm, this drink is not right. 2 out of three is good.

tiare -> deviator, do you have a name?

SeanMike -> but that might be ... other things

deviator -> the name is, "At This Point My Taste Buds Are Shot"

TheMonkeyHut -> uh no comment.

tiare -> OK!!

TheMonkeyHut -> atpmtbas?

deviator -> yes.

SeanMike -> well, time to find the gin...

TheMonkeyHut -> That sounds like quitter talk.

SeanMike -> and by the way the monkey hut-ers should wear name tags

SeanMike -> or tattoos

SeanMike -> (other than Blair)

TheMonkeyHut -> I am Mrs. Blair

deviator -> ooooh, you are Mrs. Blair

Reese -> LOL

deviator -> Hi Mrs. Blair!

deviator -> seanmike: yes, I was in that one.

SeanMike -> OH DEAR LORD HE'S MARRIED uh I mean wow you must be a very nice, caring,
compassionate, well-meaning woman

junkhauler -> who hasnt been in one is the greater question

cocktailnerd -> hey sara (sp?) nice to finally meet you!

cocktailnerd -> bwd

cocktailnerd -> Sorciere smells like an onion afte shaking

SeanMike -> did you interrupt a Super Bowl recently?


tiare -> sorry caps..

junkhauler -> no, just played a town drunk in one
cocktailnerd -> and tastes like mojito-flavored gum

samuraibartender -> tiare - stevi's latest

deviator -> what tastes like mojito flavored gum?

tiare -> that nice one;-)

deviator -> that orbit mojito gum is gross ;)

Greg Boehm -> drinks tonight are quite good

SeanMike -> <The British Version of Pirates of the Carribbean>But where'd the gin

deviator -> haha

deviator -> gin, not rum

deviator -> :)

cocktailnerd -> That's not bad, mind you, but it's aparticular flavor

SeanMike -> gfd (gindom)

cocktailnerd -> Greg has liked...shit I forget you can't hear me

cocktailnerd -> srsly, a TDN party line would be hot

deviator -> oh we have gotomeeting. damn, forget how to use it.

cocktailnerd -> and a bunch of cackling and people trying to jump in to mkae jokes

TheMonkeyHut -> greg what drinks did you like tonight?

sylvan -> no strega here

stevideter -> maybe skip the absinthe rinse?

Reese -> Drink-Well -> suggestion on gin for the gimdom?

cocktailnerd -> No, I think it's the heavy dose of Strega, stevi

stevideter -> fair 'nough.

drink-well -> plymouth

drink-well -> or beefeater

cocktailnerd -> Sara, it *is* the point, but much like Daggerfall forums, just an exercise in out-clevering
one another

deviator -> if someone else would like to make drinks

cocktailnerd -> yes, deviator?

cocktailnerd -> hey there heinzy!

tiare -> Hi
heinzy -> hi all

sylvan -> welcome heinzy

drink-well -> welcome

Reese -> GFD -> Gimdom

sylvan -> if you want video -

deviator -> 1) pimento dram, 2) yellow chartreuse, 3) coffee liqueuer, 4) cynar

cocktailnerd -> good work, sylvan

cocktailnerd -> deviator's taste buds are shot

deviator -> it's not a drink

deviator -> it's suggestions for benedictine pairings

sylvan -> look at the lovely ladies

deviator -> :)

deviator -> jumping-off-points for drinks if you will

cocktailnerd -> Except for the coffee liqueur they're all competing herbal tones

deviator -> cn: yes, but explain the last word :)

sylvan -> herbal tones are additive

SeanMike -> more people should use B&B

deviator -> sylvan: exactly

Reese -> Crap, no cucumber or celery bitters, sorry Drink-Well, no Gimdom for me.

cocktailnerd -> Fair enough, but the Last Word is a classic...TDN drinks tend to be.......... epehemeral

drink-well -> any hendricks reese?

Reese -> Indeed

heinzy -> what's tonight's special?

cocktailnerd -> *ephemeral

Reese -> I'll give that a go

samuraibartender -> B&B or Bendictine

deviator -> cn: once in a while there's a gem

cocktailnerd -> B&B or Benedictine

drink-well -> the cucumber notes might pull it togetther

cocktailnerd -> your cucumber notes notes...nevermind
sylvan -> check out

Greg Boehm -> I made mine plus the Brandied Cherry anf the Charly Horse.. but the recipes in general
look good

TheMonkeyHut -> new idea for the next TDN - best cocktail you can make with 2 ingredients! or maybe
the worst.... either way, it's like winning scrabble!

cocktailnerd -> heh

heinzy -> ah, of course, BonzoGal told me about it

Reese -> Reese FTL...failed to replace my bottle of Hendricks.

TheMonkeyHut -> maybe we should call it the charley hoarse

cocktailnerd -> Triple Drink score if you add dashes of 3 different bitters

drink-well -> aww

TheMonkeyHut -> no triple drink score!

drink-well -> next time

deviator -> monkeyhut: yeah I suggested something like that - drinks with few ingredients :)

Reese -> Indeed, indeed

cocktailnerd -> yeah, anyone remember "Pre-Prohibition" night?

cocktailnerd -> that went terribly

TheMonkeyHut -> triple drink score is when you have 3 drinks in front of you

TheMonkeyHut -> ha

TheMonkeyHut -> we are attempting a coffee pairing at this moment

TheMonkeyHut -> comments to follow

drink-well -> The Triple Drink Score: 1 oz Brandy, 1 oz Benedictine, 1 dash Angostura, 3 dashes Peach
Bitters, 2 dashes Peychaud

cocktailnerd -> i.e 2oz B&B and some bitters

samuraibartender -> So 2 oz. B&B with bitters?

Reese -> That, on the other hand, I can make.

samuraibartender -> heh

drink-well -> yeah

drink-well -> kinda a joke

deviator -> technically B&B is two ingredients

cocktailnerd -> hahaha

sylvan -> ooh!
sylvan -> you got the salute!

drink-well -> that cocktail glass is too large

drink-well -> i'm disappointed

deviator -> can someone write out the B&B & coffee syrup drink?

drink-well -> how many ounces? like 17?

deviator -> and give it a name pls?

SeanMike -> well

cocktailnerd -> ok, I'm off to develop a drink using vanilla sugar and coffee syrup

TheMonkeyHut -> An Early Morning: 1.5 oz old nola rum, amber and 1/4 oz coffee syrup, 1 oz

TheMonkeyHut -> yum!

sylvan -> those are about 7 or 8 ounce

SeanMike -> this is the first time I used celery bitters since that TDN back in Sept that caused me to
forget pants the next day

drink-well -> slight exageration

deviator -> do you need actual amber from an archaeological dig?

junkhauler -> i want some ice water

drink-well -> any good, seanmike?

cocktailnerd -> hehehe

cocktailnerd -> I took it the same way dev

cocktailnerd -> gfd

SeanMike -> it's not bad. I made the gindom using Hendrick's and celery bitters instead of cucumber

drink-well -> well at least it's not bad

drink-well -> gabe hated it

SeanMike -> i need another taste or two to fully appreciate I think

samuraibartender -> Gabe: 3/4oz B&B, 1/4oz (aged) Demerara Rum, 1oz Turkish Coffee (or Espresso),
1.25Tsp Raw Simple, 1 pinch ea. Cardamom & Nutmeg. Stir in sugar, roll between two mugs & pour into
warmed demitasse

deviator -> the drink is called a Gabe?

deviator -> yet another Gabe-named drink...

SeanMike -> that's a repost there

samuraibartender -> no, I posted that hours ago, with no name, but if hes playing with coffee anyways…
samuraibartender -> and no, please, much as I like Gabe...

junkhauler -> the gabe would have vampire blood in it stirred with a magic wand from what i can gather

samuraibartender -> and a healthy dash of gin

SeanMike -> yeah it'd have to be a Buffy themed drink

Greg Boehm -> I must say goodbye

samuraibartender -> G'night Greg

Reese -> Bye Greg

SeanMike -> and now Marleigh starts getting kinky

napplegate -> The Crockett: 1 1/2 oz light bodied scotch, 1 oz coffee syrup, 1/2 oz cointreau, 1/2 oz
lemon juice, 1/2 oz benedictine

nerdling -> I have an advanced sense of the abstract. I can handle the non-literal.

cocktailnerd -> "light-bodied scotch" = your mom's first lover

napplegate -> haha

napplegate -> i dont mind something like dewars 12

napplegate -> just nothing too bold

drink-well -> what about it?

ouroboros -> I didn't realize

drink-well -> i missed that

TheMonkeyHut -> As long as mine isn't as bad as Bourdreau's....

ouroboros -> strange, it must have caught my eye and bypassed my brain

TheMonkeyHut -> more gin based maybe?

drink-well -> hmm

samuraibartender -> or not...?

deviator -> I mean everyone in PDX roams around drunk all day, so infrastructure services are not
necessarily dependable

TheMonkeyHut -> something that would lead our conversation in a more, how do you say,
intelllllectuya'all direction?

cocktailnerd -> ?!

SeanMike -> sylvan: so, thought on the drink. It's good. It's not what I'd jump up and down for, but if I got
it at a bar, I'd say "oh, hey, this isn't bad."

SeanMike -> I like the complexity of it despite this late hour, but it almost feels a bit like it's trying too hard

sylvan -> I think it needs a little work

SeanMike -> also, my Lillet is a bit old, so it might not be helping

up in the AM

cocktailnerd -> I complain about this, not at all

SeanMike -> i clean as i go, because i have roomies. soon, i will no longer do that

SeanMike -> and when i have kids, they will clean for me

camper -> heh

cocktailnerd -> BLOGTV

cocktailnerd -> indeed

cocktailnerd -> SYLVAN!

TheMonkeyHut -> now jmo is drinkning beer. We have failed

cocktailnerd -> FAIL!

cocktailnerd -> bbiab gfd

cocktailnerd -> BBTart

cocktailnerd -> and Daiquirithingy

TheMonkeyHut -> 2 at once?

SeanMike -> YES

SeanMike -> did he do a shot of grand marnier first? that'd make him a DC bartender...:)
SeanMike -> well, Gina and some others prefer Jameson' preference, too

SeanMike -> but they also do Miller High Life instead of'd say the Gina route is better.

TheMonkeyHut -> irish is so sweet

SeanMike -> though that's Redbreast and not Jameson's

TheMonkeyHut -> redbreast is much better

samuraibartender -> true, but jameson's beats many of the other irish varieties

stevideter -> ok, the B&B refresher: into glass of ice, pour 1 oz B&B, top with soda water, 2 dashes cherry

TheMonkeyHut -> hell, I even like pinkbreast

JohnTheBastard -> wb stevi...if you were gone

cocktailnerd -> first up, Daquiritineishthing

cocktailnerd -> heh

JohnTheBastard -> true

camper -> agree

cocktailnerd -> The Daquiritine is pleasant but safe and uninspiring

JohnTheBastard -> thats sort of a relief. i dont have to blend ice with my POS blender.

cocktailnerd -> and "Where's the Oronoco?"

JohnTheBastard -> because its B&B TDN and I am out of ideas.

cocktailnerd -> it's not the worst drink I've had this evening, by far

SeanMike -> okay kids i'm about outta here

cocktailnerd -> ok, now for the BBTart

cocktailnerd -> cya ShawnMic

TheMonkeyHut -> 'night

cocktailnerd -> Oh wow...

cocktailnerd -> the BBTart is actually tasty as hell and well balanced

cocktailnerd -> whose is this?

drink-well -> sweet

drink-well -> mine
TheMonkeyHut -> bbtart

cocktailnerd -> I used straight B&B essentially

drink-well -> that's fine

cocktailnerd -> and jus tshook it and poured it into a glass zombie-style

cocktailnerd -> but it's nice, well done

drink-well -> thanks

drink-well -> i liked it as well

TheMonkeyHut -> it is good, the bbtart

drink-well -> thanks monkeyhut?

drink-well -> oops, no question mark

cocktailnerd -> yeah, it's making my "Top 5" for sure

cocktailnerd -> unusual for a drink this late to be worth a stutz

drink-well -> did everybody over there try it

drink-well -> heh

cocktailnerd -> :

camper -> could you change the music please

cocktailnerd -> dump the benedictine and go with straight B&B I says

camper -> ok that was nerdy

drink-well -> i'll have to try that too gabe

cocktailnerd -> <LaForge>If we channel the dynamic thrust inducers through the deflector
just might work!!!</laforge>

TheMonkeyHut -> so smooth

TheMonkeyHut -> power failure

cocktailnerd -> Scotty wuld *never* have let this happen!

JohnTheBastard -> were it not for the laforge tags i would have guessed star wars

cocktailnerd -> HEH

cocktailnerd -> oops

cocktailnerd -> camper, you have any magic potions in mind this evening?
camper -> no

samuraibartender -> drink-well I just finished you BBTart - that was a fine & tasty beverage, quaffable

cocktailnerd -> agreed chris

drink-well -> wow, thanks

cocktailnerd -> But just use B&B

drink-well -> seems like folks liked it

cocktailnerd -> yup

cocktailnerd -> The Daiquiritine has sat unloved here

camper -> this is the music i requested you change earlier

JohnTheBastard -> use b&B instead of benedictine, you mean?

drink-well -> sorry, i'll probably try it on monday when i get home, gabe

camper -> i love QOTSA but i expect tiki-esque

samuraibartender -> cocktailnerd Did that too, figured it'd work just fine

camper -> <- backseat ipodding

cocktailnerd -> heh

drink-well -> he means instead of the mix of ben and brandy

drink-well -> i think

samuraibartender -> yup

drink-well -> right, gabe?

cocktailnerd -> yes

JohnTheBastard -> oh, got it, right.

TheMonkeyHut -> all camper says are LIES

cocktailnerd -> nice engrish

TheMonkeyHut -> camper is engrish

drink-well -> so what's the prize this time around?

JohnTheBastard -> is 1 dash angostura really enough to stand up to all that?

drink-well -> B&B?
drink-well -> a healthy dash

cocktailnerd -> John, actually yes, was surprised

cocktailnerd -> but it comes through well enough

samuraibartender -> UK copy of Haigh's Vintage Spirits & Forgotten cocktails

drink-well -> i think so, but i love angostura

cocktailnerd -> I think Fee's Aromatic might serve it better but it's needed either way

drink-well -> to me, it makes almost any drink better

cocktailnerd -> The prize is a copy of "The Mixicologist"

drink-well -> still haven't tried those gabe

drink-well -> oh, nice

sylvan -> what, in metric?

cocktailnerd -> and then Greg is giving Reese a side-prize

JohnTheBastard -> im gonna make half size, and use fee's whiskey barrel

drink-well -> side prize? for what?

cocktailnerd -> that will be a little drier but should work

drink-well -> yeah, that should be fine john

cocktailnerd -> to Reese for guessing where his (Greg's) drink's name came from

drink-well -> ahh

drink-well -> BACK to lemon?

cocktailnerd -> ?

drink-well -> Yeah, i'm confused too.

cocktailnerd -> ohmy

drink-well -> i did bartending school

rumdood -> The BBTart? Wasn't that the drink being worked on when I left with brandy, ben, grapefruit,
and lemon?

drink-well -> waste of money

samuraibartender -> not at THAT bartending school I hope

cocktailnerd -> did they teach you when to pick your nose?

drink-well -> not that one know

drink-well -> no*

drink-well -> nope

drink-well -> oh yeah, have you tried it Matt?

cocktailnerd -> well, no wonder you do it wrong

drink-well -> it's actually quite tasty apparently

cocktailnerd -> your boogers?
drink-well -> those too, but i meant the BBTart

drink-well -> "nobody really uses fresh limes anymore"

rumdood -> Haven't tried any of them. Got home about an hour ago, but have been pretty much just
settling ing

rumdood -> in

cocktailnerd -> noone uses fresh limes anymore

cocktailnerd -> they're hard to get

rumdood -> Returning phone calls, text messages, figuring out tomorrow

drink-well -> where are your priorities, matt?

drink-well -> booze first!

cocktailnerd -> *laugh

drink-well -> it's luggable

TheMonkeyHut -> all of them are rinsed with B&B
cocktailnerd -> oh really...a SHOT GLASS

drink-well -> "there are different types of shotglasses"

cocktailnerd -> hahaha

drink-well -> dood, are you watching the live feed?

cocktailnerd -> I think he is, hence the silence

cocktailnerd -> the horrified silence

drink-well -> maybe he stroked out from all the awesomeness

cocktailnerd -> ?!

rumdood -> I need one hand for the mouse

cocktailnerd -> speaking of two hands

JohnTheBastard -> i think 1/2 proportions of the bbtard is ample

cocktailnerd -> your mom is ample

drink-well -> that's probably true, it's got some body to it

cocktailnerd -> IT IS!

JohnTheBastard -> i suck at floats. i use a turkey syringe to insert the heavy liquid at the bottom of the
glass if i really need to do one.

cocktailnerd -> layering B&B, Benedictine, Char, and Milk?

drink-well -> we should have a layered drink TDN

JohnTheBastard -> a 4 layer drink?

drink-well -> indeed

rumdood -> I want some coffee-flavored lickur

cocktailnerd -> uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

drink-well -> irish cream liquor?

rumdood -> Someone make him stop rubbing his beard

rumdood -> Please

JohnTheBastard -> i think they should revoke your bartending liscense for watching this stuff.

drink-well -> don't forget the irish cream licker
cocktailnerd -> OOPS

drink-well -> :)

JohnTheBastard -> sugar based? i guess thats sort of true

cocktailnerd -> this is what the internet was born for, no?

cocktailnerd -> BJ - sugar-type drink

cocktailnerd -> "Whaddya gonna do, eh?"

cocktailnerd -> heh

cocktailnerd -> How does the american bartending school stay in biz?

cocktailnerd -> Dude, limes are very expensive

rumdood -> People like blair watch their videos

cocktailnerd -> stop giving him shit

cocktailnerd -> wtf?

JohnTheBastard -> so, i've never looked into it...what does one have to do to get a bartending license?
does it vary by state? is ith through the ABA?

rumdood -> Images burned into my retinas that I never wantned

cocktailnerd -> you doing shots of bald pussies, blair?

cocktailnerd -> varies by state, john

cocktailnerd -> in some state syou have to take a test

cocktailnerd -> in some you just have to pay a fee

cocktailnerd -> and, of course, complete the application

rumdood -> He keeps hurting me

cocktailnerd -> very few, if any, require actual bartending training in regards to drink-making

JohnTheBastard -> do you have to take a class? what do they test?

cocktailnerd -> for me, John, I had to mail in a 10-question questionairre along with $50 to be licensed for
2 years

JohnTheBastard -> hmm

drink-well -> bwd

cocktailnerd -> Blair, who is that on the vid?

rumdood -> Is that Sylvan?
rumdood -> Peanuts or no?

cocktailnerd -> yes, sylvan is to blair's left

drink-well -> the julep, you know, like a mojito

rumdood -> DONE

cocktailnerd -> yes!

JohnTheBastard -> did you know that brizard made a tea liqueur?

drink-well -> everybody knows that john

drink-well -> i mean, no

JohnTheBastard -> wonder if its better than firefly

drink-well -> now they're watching something in a different language?

cocktailnerd -> I think he might kill you through the internet for denigrating firefly

JohnTheBastard -> i dont know if they make it any more. i found it in the cocktaildb gallery

drink-well -> who is that in the green sweater vest?

cocktailnerd -> heather I think

cocktailnerd -> craig's wife

JohnTheBastard -> i like most of brizard's products.

cocktailnerd -> wow

drink-well -> no big deal

cocktailnerd -> hey sylvan!

drink-well -> Does Carpano Antica make a good manhattan?

TheMonkeyHut -> Carpano Antica makes anything good

cocktailnerd -> hah!

JohnTheBastard -> carpano is beautiful.

cocktailnerd -> indeed

cocktailnerd -> "heavy" flavor

drink-well -> what was everybody's conversion drink?

drink-well -> mine was the old-fashioned

cocktailnerd -> what does that even mean?
cocktailnerd -> Aviation

cocktailnerd -> finding maraschino liqueur changed everything

drink-well -> what does conversion drink mean??

JohnTheBastard -> conversion from waht?

drink-well -> from not liking true cocktails

cocktailnerd -> huh?

JohnTheBastard -> wut?

JohnTheBastard -> uhh...gin matinis.

JohnTheBastard -> martinis

cocktailnerd -> Mattini

drink-well -> with rumdood mixed in?

JohnTheBastard -> mmm, rumdood and vermooth

JohnTheBastard -> lol

rumdood -> Just make sure it's dry vermouth

drink-well -> damn straight

drink-well -> and orange bitters too

rumdood -> Not as far as I know

cocktailnerd -> did you make a drink, matt?

cocktailnerd -> I have one more in me if you did

rumdood -> Yes

drink-well -> what's everybody's favorite orange bitters for martinis/martinezs?

rumdood -> A total throw-away idea

rumdood -> But I'm drinking it anyway

cocktailnerd -> For a martinez I've been using Bitter Truth

JohnTheBastard -> then i found ted haigh's book and realized he had done all the work for me.

drink-well -> interesting john

cocktailnerd -> for martinis I use Regan's

drink-well -> really?
drink-well -> i've only tried it with fees

cocktailnerd -> yup, I like the spiciness

drink-well -> i REALLY need to pick up some regans

JohnTheBastard -> depends on my mood. Fee's was my standard for like 3 years, so i still use it pretty

rumdood -> 1 oz Jamaican Rum, .5 oz Benedictine, .5 oz Tuaca, .25 oz Creole Shrubb, .5 oz Lime Juice,
2 dashes bitters. Shake with ice, strain into some sort of vessel designed to hold liquids...possibly with
frozen water of some sort

JohnTheBastard -> Angostura is probably the better bitters, but i have a strong affection for Fee's

cocktailnerd -> I don't have Ango orange, rick hasn't sent it to me yet

cocktailnerd -> observe

rumdood -> Did he eat chili?

JohnTheBastard -> what are they watching?

JohnTheBastard -> cheech and chong?

rumdood -> The Bartender Hates You

drink-well -> i wish rick would send me bitters

drink-well -> or anything

cocktailnerd -> well, I won them in a TDN, and he hasn't been able to get ahold of them

drink-well -> I have an idea. Let's create a cocktail one ingredient/person at a time.

drink-well -> each person adds an ingredient

JohnTheBastard -> hey, gabe, email me rick's address. i told him i'd send him robert hess's book, but he
never gave me an address

rumdood -> My drink needs a name

drink-well -> oh, let's name the drink first

JohnTheBastard -> we used to do that DW.

cocktailnerd -> will do John

JohnTheBastard -> i dont remember it ever working well. it was fun, but we'd spend an hour and a half
arguing about a base spirit

drink-well -> well our base has to be B&B of course

rumdood -> Or Benedictine
drink-well -> let's just start with 1.5 oz B&B

rumdood -> .5 oz Green Chartreuse

JohnTheBastard -> this is the problem with TDN themes. long after I am tired of the theme ingredient...its
still the theme.

drink-well -> nice

JohnTheBastard -> batavia arrack

drink-well -> .25 oz luxardo maraschino

cocktailnerd -> no!

rumdood -> Someone suggest Fernet for Rick!

cocktailnerd -> I actually did a decent fernet drink earlier

drink-well -> sure you did

cocktailnerd -> which is coming up in a few weeks, btw

JohnTheBastard -> fine, no batavia arrack. parfait amour

drink-well -> now i have to buy fernet?

cocktailnerd -> GAH!

rumdood -> You don't have Fernet?

drink-well -> nope

drink-well -> i'm pathetic

drink-well -> i only have about 80 bottles of booze

JohnTheBastard -> i have fernet because it came in the mail

rumdood -> Oh right

drink-well -> neat

rumdood -> What are you? Italian?

cocktailnerd -> Blair

cocktailnerd -> bah!

rumdood -> Armadilla Extract

drink-well -> a little

rumdood -> mmmmmm

drink-well -> Jeff is back

cocktailnerd -> heh

cocktailnerd -> monosyllabic Jeff

cocktailnerd -> awesome

drink-well -> Hey Jeff, do you know how to cohost

drink-well -> i'll be on camera

cocktailnerd -> you say that like it would be a good thing mark

drink-well -> ahh

rumdood -> It doesn't sound like a good thing to me

rumdood -> And didn't Gabe have another drink to submit?

cocktailnerd -> whatev

cocktailnerd -> Oh, blair

cocktailnerd -> Did you have to take off work tonight?

drink-well -> heh

cocktailnerd -> hahaha

cocktailnerd -> tweaking

rumdood -> As they often do

cocktailnerd -> true
JohnTheBastard -> like, take out the ingredients, and replace them with other, better ones.

rumdood -> Normally I get to do at least two passes before submitting

drink-well -> Mine was good too, but I guess you wouldn't know that. You non-BBTart-taster.

cocktailnerd -> I soooooo want to have a "perfection" night where people bring on one drink from prior
TDNs and retool them so they work

cocktailnerd -> they're generally only 80% there at best in ere

rumdood -> I like it

drink-well -> i agree

JohnTheBastard -> true

drink-well -> best typing face ever

cocktailnerd -> Being mocked by JMO is the highlight of my day

cocktailnerd -> that should indicate the quality of life I lead

JohnTheBastard -> screen is too small to see chat and feed at the same time.

cocktailnerd -> that's why you need 3 laptops

drink-well -> What's wrong with your screen, John?

drink-well -> haha

drink-well -> It seems things may be winding down

JohnTheBastard -> did we do a chartreuse TDN already?

cocktailnerd -> yes

cocktailnerd -> in January

cocktailnerd -> heh, nice shot

JohnTheBastard -> oh...that was the one that happened when i was out of town

cocktailnerd -> hehe
