Weird--I like it!

I've been wanting to try a mezcal negroni but I love it so much neat I almost feel sacrilegious mixing it. But it makes hella sense so I will try it one day.
Think it, be it.

Mezcal Negronis are a’ight, but if I’m mixing mezcal it’s into a margarita. Vast improvement on the original, IMO.

You can also make a marg with tequila and then do a mezcal float.

But, why waste the carbs and strain my liver if I love the stuff neat? That is part of my struggle to expand my horizons as well.
Think it, be it.

I love a good Negroni. This is going back to 2019 but was probably one of the more interesting ones I’ve had…


So do I, and I have to say this looks seriously cool. did you by chance find out which gin and vermouth went into this intricate device?
Honestly I probably did but 2 years of covid stress drinking has wiped it from my memory

Rey Campero Jabalí is excellent, but La Venenosa Sierra del Tigre raicilla is one of the weirdest, most interesting spirits I’ve ever had. So cheesy and lactic on the nose. What a wild ride! Truly one of my favorite potations of all time.

This brand hasn’t missed yet. This one has some wet cement, grass, and dirt going on. Fantastic! This cactus takes 25-35 years to mature so it develops some complex sugars that yield wonderful flavor.

Negroni variation with a different bitters:

Bad planning means no ice cubes in the right size. Needs must...

I just completed the Blantons set this year and was planning to send them into Buffalo Trace.  They will mount them on a stave and send them back free of charge.  Kinda cool I guess

The only thing more impressive is actually being able to get the Bourbon. Pretty elusive where I’m at,except at exorbitant prices. I have a bottle of Straight from the Barrel Blantons,that I take out for special occasions.

Stopped in to my local shop to grab some of the double Oaked. Been wanting to try it for a while…. It was my lucky day that’s for sure, I’ve been looking for a rock hill farms for years
