Squid Mixes: Bronx Cocktail
I find my personal tastes are starting to take focus. That's not to say I won't continue to experiment but at this point, I feel I have a pretty good handle on how the major players among both liquors and mixers function. And I know what I like. I'm a whiskey person, particularly rye, though scotch is certainly nice when drinking it straight. I prefer gin as a mixer to vodka. Tequila is intriguing. I like lime and I like bitters. Manhattan is still my favorite.
More importantly, I can now look at a list of ingredients and have a pretty good idea of how the combination is going to taste. As such, I feel I've reached a new stage in the hobby, one that might require an altered approach. Stay tuned.
