Some cool cocktail recipes photographs:

By way of Ted Haigh’s Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails.
Original calls for bourbon, but I did not have any, so substituted rye whiskey (which I desire), and slightly lowered the volume of lime juice.
Original recipe is fundamentally:
1 ounce bourbon whiskey
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
one/2 ounce orange curaçao
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
1 lime wedge, for garnish
one mint leaf, for garnish
but as I said, I lowered the sum of lime this time, and like it greater. (I hold notes on cocktails, b/c I’m weird like that).
Also, I’ve nevertheless to ever attend a horse race, but perhaps this will be the yr!
