Gin Cocktail For Bottling

First, just a reminder that Sunday, March 27, 2011, is our monthly exercise in folly, Savoy Cocktail Book Night at Alembic Bar. If any of the cocktails on this blog have captured your fancy, stop by after 6 and allow the skilled bartenders (and me) to make them for you. It is always a fun time.

Prepared Cocktails for Bottling.

I’m going to skip ahead to the next section, while I finish getting the Zed in order.

Unfortunately, I’m not going to make any of these cocktails, the batches are just too large and the amounts too weird.

If there are any bars or spirits reps who might want to work with me to give these a try, let me know. Until then I will wait for the grant for “Advanced Alcoholic Studies” to roll in.
