    Several months ago I created the Favorite Beer Thread and I've decided to expand on this idea and start a "Favorite Cocktail Recipe Thread". Why not spread the "joy" and share your recipe.

    So what's your favorite cocktail, and how do we make it?

    For me, it's plain and simple. Double Iced Jameson, Neat.



    - Pour 2oz of Jameson Irish Whisky into a shaker
    - Add two to three large pieces of ice to minimize melt off
    - Shake for approximately 10 seconds to thoroughly chill
    - Strain ice and pour neatly into a rocks glass
    - Enjoy​

    2 parts Hendrick's
    1 part good-grade Sake
    Wash the rocks with dry vermouth
    Muddle with a slice of cucumber

    Serve in a cocktail glass; optionally garnish w a strip of lime zest.

    ...but most of the time, it's double Sapphire or a Single Malt. :cool:

    Sake isn't nearly as common as other liquors, but a Ginjo is best, which is a bit more delicate than many others. Try Chokaisan Junmai..

    1/2 oz Lemon Juice

    Add Celery Salt to the wet rim of an highball glass. Swipe a lemon wedge on the rim to prep the glass.
    Pour the Clamato juice and the lemon juice in the glass filled with ice.
