    I generally take my drinks straight, but if I'm going to have a cocktail, it will be a Sazerac. Unless, of course, as is too often the case, the bartender doesn't know how to make one. In which case I'll have a Manhattan,made with Rye...

    Sazerac Cocktail Recipe:

    Crushed ice
    1 teaspoon absinthe, Pernod, or Herbsaint liqueur
    Ice cubes
    1 teaspoon sugar, 1 sugar cube, or 1 teaspoon simple syrup
    1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey
    3 dashed Peychaud's Bitters
    1 lemon peel twist

    Chill an old-fashioned glass by filling with crushed ice or refrigerate or freeze for at least 30 minutes. Add the Herbsaint, absinthe, or Pernod to the glass; swirl it around to coat the entire sides and bottom of the glass. Discard the excess.

    In a cocktail shaker, add 4 or 5 small ice cubes, sugar, rye whiskey, and bitters. Shake gently for about 30 seconds; strain into the prepared old-fashioned glass. Twist lemon peel over the drink and then place in the drink.

    My favorite, the gin Martini. It is said the drink was invented, so that men would have a civilized way, to drink raw gin.

    Again,it proves that necessity is the mother of invention.

    And before anyone beats me to it, a martini is like a womans is not enough, three is too many.

    Seeing as how spring is upon us:

    The 'Real Margarita'(as ez as 1-2-3)

    3 oz Cuervo Gold tequila
    2 oz Grand Marnier
    1oz fresh lime juice
    kosher salt(coarse-for the glass rim)
    lime wedge
    cracked ice and ice cubes

    Mix the first 3 ingredients in an ice- filled shaker. Run lime wedge around rim of drinking glass, then dip into kosher salt; Fill cocktail glass with plenty of cracked ice; Pour shaker contents into cocktail glass; garnish with lime wedge and enjoy! BTW, the first person who mentions a frozen margarita gets it right in the jugular-real men do not drink frozen!

    I think I'd like your version Rick. Not much call for to have a Bloody Mary though. Haven't had a hangover in 10 years. :D

    I make a variation of a bloody mary and a ceasar.

    I use a large beer sleeve glass (16 oz I think?) with a few ice cubes
    Chilled Clamato (about 6-8 OZ)
    2 OZ of Vodka
    a few Olives (w/ pimento good, w/ blue cheese, better)
    a couple of pickled onions (yes, I like to eat this particular drink)
    a shake of worcestershire and tobasco
    a 1 tsp of prepared horseradish
    a wedge of lemon or lime
    a slender stalk of celery

    To the chilled glass add ice, then vodka, then horseradish, squeeze lemon, worcestershire/tobasco, S&P. Mix well. Then add Clamato and mix again. Garnish with celery, onions and olives.

    DEE-lish.......... A great starter drink for a beer session. And as stated above, the best hangover cure. (maybe omit the horseradish if you are going this route though)
