GIFs would be a great name for a bar.

I saw a werewolf drinking a Pina Colada at Trader GIFs.
His hair was perfect.

THAT'S JUST A SWEET MANHATTAN!!!!!!
Bite off of Fatty Cue's smoked cherry coke fad
Why would anyone do that to amaro?
I recall liking Mayahuel.
Margarita.
Mojito
Vodka, shouldn't count.
Variant on the theme similar to the first
Pina Colada
Ok. You win.
Oh come on. That's trying as hard as the sweet manhattan. Also Raines. Ew.
Sazerac.
Dutch Kills, and Milk & Honey, are awesome.
That has another name, without the orgeat and with orange bitters instead.
Nog.

Most of these seem like they are minor variations on drinks from PDT's cocktail recipe book. Coincidence?

Pimm's is a great drink, but what are you doing ordering it in January?

And the bartender in #9 needs to be told about not wearing white cardigans over black dress shirts.

well, a big part of it is the execution. i can give 5 different bartenders the same gin, vermouth and ice and tell them the proportions and preparation method that I like and get 5 different martinis.

/ just like the sazerac, a friend of mine makes the best in town, such that I've stopped ordering them in bars. but, he practically needs a chemistry set and 5-10 minutes to make it. same, traditional ingredients though.

pute kisses like a man: and tell them the proportions and preparation method that I like and get 5 different martinis.


Then those bartenders suck. Or some of them have cheaper gin in a more expensive bottle. Or the vermouth has spoiled. It isn't liquor. It's a fortified wine that should be kept in the fridge for a few months max.

The execution, as you put it, is making the drink, no? If you like your martini done 60:1 with the whisp of angel farts and the barthing does it 48:1 and uses demon semen, he failed, no?

I desperately wanted to bombard the thread with Tom Cruise in Cocktail gifs but I don't have the time nor energy.

"This cocktail hits a bunch of different notes and has a really interesting narrative in terms of how and when they come in."

And then I lost interest and realized the author sucks balls and needs to no longer be encouraged. Any drink that creates a "narrative" makes me think you are trying to hard. Alcohol doesn't speak. Nor does it tell a story. It. is. a. goddamn. drink.

Now shut the hell up and make me one.
