My friend really wanted me to check out his new house and liquor selection. He had me at liquor selection.
My favorites (besides the obvious bourbons) were Templeton Rye, Glenlivet 18-year, Johnny Walker Green, and Glenmorangie - Ben Hanten
my favorites :)) - Niranjan
He's into the details -- like the best bitters, vermouths, and everything else most people take for granted. - Ben Hanten
How was the JW Green? Dave's a fan of the black but hasn't tried green yet. - FFing Enigma
Oh green is great. In order it's Red, Black, Gold, Green, Blue. I love Gold & Green. Blue is the best, but over-priced. I just don't want to spend $200 - $250 for a bottle of Scotch - Ben Hanten
My dad used to love Glenmorangie. Also the liquer Glayva. - Ordinarybug Heather
Glenmorangie is extremely difficult to find in the U.S. these days - Ben Hanten

Bartenders, amateur mixologists, and cocktail enthusiasts ---- Do you use simple syrup or just plain sugar? And why?
When I first learned to bartend, I was told that sugar is the same thing as simple syrup, which it obviously is not. Do you find you get the sweetness you want in your drinks? I always use sugar when anything needs to be muddled... but I'm starting to wonder if simple syrup is the key to taking a drink to another level. - Ben Hanten

Since it's Sunday morning, it's time to think about the Bloody Mary. Mix it up with bourbon?
um, no. - Laura Norvig
You like bourbon that much? - Anika
<whispers> doesn't like bloody mary's </whispers> -----> - Derrick
Derrick, I've always stated that Bloody Marry's are just steak marinade on ice. - Anika
I love bourbon, and I think the Intoxicologist makes a strong case that the flavors should work well together. - Ben Hanten
theoretically it does seem like that *could* work ... but I really like the flavors in a bloody mary, so I'll stick with vodka because it doesn't have much of it's own flavor. - Laura Norvig
For me, the Boddy Mary need to be heavy on the spice. - Eric - ill subliminal
me too, Eric. Worcesteshire, horseradish, tabasco, black pepper ... sometimes I throw in a little juice from the jar of something vinegary, like pepperoncinis. - Laura Norvig
If you want to step up the spice in your bloody, try using Absolut Peppar. - Ben Hanten
You say Bloody Mary and I think Igor's in Nawlins for the WIN! :-) - Mathew A. Koeneker
