I totally skipped posting about a bunch of past Fridays. Such as:


The Pegu Club cocktail


The West Side Park


September Gurls (not the best name, but tasted fine)


Pisco Sours

The plan for this afternoon is to make the Aviation Cocktail.

Heh, yes, my workplace is pretty nice. And no, not really drunk, as 1) it's work, and 2) I rarely have more than one or two, and have two only if I have sufficient time to let things metabolize first.

Pegu club and aviation at both good cocktails. Although some people make the aviation too sweet and it drowns out the gin.

Yeah, I noted that most of my different sources each had slightly different ways to make 'em. The first set I made were based on the Wikipedia entry:
2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Maraschino Liquor
1/4 oz Creme di Violette

I like my drinks sour, so I tried the version from the PDT Cocktail book, which I ended up preferring:

2 oz Gin
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Marashino Liquor
1/8 oz Creme di Violette

Today is kind of like Friday, especially as I have Friday off. Also, it's relatively warm here.

Therefore, Mojitos.

It's quite good, I think. The Old Tom is balanced out by the sweet Dolin Blanc and the little bit of St. Germain.

It's a bit sweeter than I normally like, but not too much to put me off.

And the others were for my boss and the receptionist. I made one more for another co-worker. At this rate, I may try less than dry martinis.

Sorry, I was out last Friday! I did have an old style Martini on Thursday, and it was delicious. (2 parts gin, 1 part dry vermouth, orange bitters).

Also, I attended a festival of meat - referred to as meatapaloza - that some friends were having. I mixed up a passel of Mojitos using their mint, and a few pisco sours using their fresh eggs. So fresh, that two out of three were produced while I was there.

We were having a meeting, and it was kind of on the fly, so no picture. But, we had sparkling wine at the meeting, so today's Friday cocktail was a Champagne Cocktail (champagne, brandy, sugar cube, bitters).

Didn't get to have a Friday Cocktail last Friday. Also, an upcoming fridge purge threatens my stock of citrus fruits. So, made some Elderflower Gimlets (a.k.a. French Gimlets).
Make with equal parts St. Germain and Lime (and two parts gin), as I like my sours to be sour. The website recipe calls for 1 pt St. G and 1/2 pt lime. My co-worker thinks the lime overpowers the flavor of the St. G, and he does have a point.

Today is Friday!



Today's Friday Cocktail: St. Germain Sidecar.
The web revealed a ton of different variations on this possibility. Different amounts of lemon juice, subbing St. G for the orange liqueur, adding St. G to the normal mix, subbing St. G for the brandy…!
I settled for what seems to me a reasonable: 2pt Brandy, 1pt St. G, 1/2 pt Lemon Juice. I like it.

Not appearing as a Friday Work Cocktail anytime soon… the Mac 'n Cheese Martini.



(OK, it's Mac 'n Cheese presented in a martini glass with a drizzle of vodka as a nod to the drink, but yeeeesh.)

Today's Friday Cocktail was a repeat by request: The Aviation. Just as well, as we have a lot of creme de violette to use up…

Careful empirical testing shows me that:
Ebb+Flow Gin > Hendricks Gin for a Gin and Tonic;
Hendricks > Ebb+Flow for an Aviation Cocktail;
Tanqueray still wins for me for martinis.

Although, significant further testing may be required to be sure.

Friday Cocktail time again!
Today, from the Bitters book - The Fourth Regiment Cocktail.
1 oz Rye, 1 oz Sweet Vermouth, 1 dash Angustora Bitters, 1 dash Celery Bitters, 1 dash Orange bitters.

I didn't have sweet vermouth about, so I used Dolin Blanc. Still pretty good!

By the way - looks like a nice cocktail but I always feel sort of annoyed when a drink is so tiny. Even if it is strong (as this one clearly is). I'd probably have to make it with more like 1½oz or 2oz of the rye and vermouth...
