      It did. Thank god it stopped.

      Ha, that sounds delicious. I'd probably have doubled the absinthe part though.

      Why don't more people drink ginger beer? And why do the people that do drink it not drink it more often?

      That's what I call a tall glass.

      my ginger beer/ale drink is a bit less sophisticated.

      - a bunch of ice
      - many parts of brown rum
      - ginger beer to top it off
      - lime

      cheers

      it'd taste better with st george absinthe verte -- which is also spectacularly affecting mixed with genever-style gin, angostura bitters and a smidgen of sugar and lemon.

      OK lw - do you know where to get some in SF? (Also, know where to get Peychaud's bitters in SF?) If so, I'll bring some to you, judith ;)

      is it safe to put so much awesome in one drink?? does it need an FDA warning? i have a friend who insists that bitters = no hangover. would you concur?

    12. judith 82 months ago | reply

      i'm pretty sure you can get both st george & peychaud's around the corner from my house at the fancy fancy liquor store.

      JZ, you live in the Sazerac neighborhood??

      I found it a bit absinthey - couldn't really taste the whiskey. I'd do it 1/2/2 or even 1/3/2...

      (and, real absinthe louches, so it's not the nice clear drink in the pic :) )

      I'll try that Chris, though I like the kick of this. The absinthe is called Hill's is 140 proof (not sure what the traditional is) and is more aqua than green. It does cloud a little (nicely) when you pour it, but it clears fairly quickly when mixed.

      And Maura: I only had one each time (50ml of each alcohol, so it is the equivalent of about 5oz of 80 proof liquor). Definitely all I needed, but not enough to actually get hung over. So no comment yet!

      Yup, both Peychaud's and blood orange bitters in my excellent local store.

      that sounds rather yummy

      Intriguing (idea, & cool shot). Angosutra bitters, eh? I just recently tried my first Absinthe, and am still just amazed with simple ice water and the lovely louche. But I look forward to trying something like this. Prost! ^_^
