Made a Vieux Carre tonight, first time trying it. Super delicious

1oz Rye
1oz Sweet Vermouth
1oz Cognac
.5oz Benedictine
2 dashes Angostura bitters
2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
Garnish with lemon and a luxardo

I used Armagnac instead of cognac because I like how it's a bit more spicy/herbal

Made this tonight. Used Pierre Ferrand Cognac and peach bitters since I didn't have Peyschauds. Tastes like a sweeter, milder, Boulevardier. Very enjoyable. Thanks for the recipe.

Forgot the garnish. Don't judge.

Random topic...anyone have some advice on how to use Boston shakers to easily unseal after shaking? I got a nice Koriko set, and for the life of me I can't consistently get those things unsealed without awkwardly squeezing the sides from different angles until they finally come undone. Bartenders seem to easily do this with one whack of the palm and it's driving me crazy...

See #6. There are also numerous YouTube videos if you search for using Boston Shaker.

Old Fashioned....

Use brown sugar, Cardomom bitters, and Luxardo cherry. When making simple syrup, use 3 tsp of water, and liberal shakes of bitters.

Perfection.

Made the wife and I some pina coladas for hanging around the pool this evening. I made the cream of coconut instead of just using Coco Lopez. I highly recommend making your own, really ups the flavor.

I used Steve the bartenders recipe.

1 can full fat coconut milk (400 ml)
1.75 cups white sugar (375 g)
Pinch of salt

Heat all in a saucepan on low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Store in a mason jar in the fridge. Shake well before use. Minimal effort, great results.

Thanks for sharing! I did some digging and the other recipes I found were much more labor intensive! I was like "yeah I'm too lazy for that!" LOL. The one you posted is much more reasonable. I wasn't about to start cracking, shelling and peeling coconut.

Yea, no more labor intensive than making a simple syrup. I used a can of Thai Kitchen organic coconut milk. Anything more complicated than what I posted likely would have diminishing returns on the additional effort. This stuff tastes like the beach, in the best way. Makes a pina colada or painkiller that much more dangerous. Luckily I can get that coconut milk and cold pressed pineapple juice at my local Costco. Enjoy!

You might give this one a try. You freeze everything beforehand and then blend it.

Ironically I made a batch of Stella Parks pineapple ice cream yesterday, it's OUTSTANDING! I just need to drop that in a blender with some rum and I'll be in business.

I've been making Pistols at Dawn a lot since I discovered the cocktail around mid-March. It's probably my favorite cocktail right now.

What's your pistols at dawn recipe ?

Looks like there's two out there.

One is a holiday drink with Irish whiskey, brown sugar coffee syrup, maple syrup, and cream.

The other is a more everyday cocktail with bourbon, Ancho Reyes, ginger, agave syrup, splash of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Making the second would see futile to me since I'd have to buy a liquer I likely wouldn't use for anything else, and I'd have to open a bottle of cab specifically for a "splash".

The first seems pretty easy. I would simple syrup using brown sugar and coffee instead of regular sugar and water. I might do this anyway as it sounds interesting.

Edit: apparently brown sugar coffee syrup is merely a syrup used in coffee, not with coffee as an ingredient. It requires sugar, brown sugar, water, and vanilla.

Yea I googled it and saw the same thing but seeing what folks recipes are as far as which one and how much of each ingredient they use.

I use the one that SpiderDude posted on page 1:

Pistols at Dawn
1 oz Bulleit (calls for bourbon, but I use rye)
1 oz Ancho Reyes
.75 ginger agave syrup
1 oz lemon juice
Cabernet sauvignon splash over the top (~1 oz or so)

Add ingredients (except Cab Sauvignon) to shaker filled with ice. Shake for 45 sec. pour into coupe glass. Add Cab Sauvignon by pouring it down the rim of the glass. It should create a layer on top of the bourbon mix.

Ancho Reyes is the tits. You can use it in Ritas also!

Edit: Or this...

I don't make a lot of ritas. But I might grab a bottle just so I don't have excuses.

Any big difference between the red and green Ancho Reyes ? Just picked up a bottle of the green going to try the Pistols at Dawn and maybe a spicy margarita tomorrow.

Haven't had the green. I'm sure it's great too though.

We made a cocktail last night that was just Ancho Reyes and bourbon. We put both bottles in the freezer for a couple hours, then mixed about 1/4 - 1/2 oz of AR with 2 oz of the bourbon.

Good Lord, it was delicious.

Anything I'm missing? I need to get Green Chartreuse for sure.
