Default Old Vermont Cocktail (gin)

Two friends recently gave me jugs of maple syrup, so I thought I'd look up a few different things to do with it.

Cocktails!

I found one that used all ingredients I have on hand, so decided to try an Old Vermont Cocktail tonight.

Great!

You can't taste any of the individual ingredients - it's a perfect blend of all of them.

I used Grade B syrup, so mine was darker than Bobby Flay's.

isn't it curious that the cookingchannel pix shows it as a clear sparkly thing in a glass, but in reality, it's cloudy....

few fruit juices are sparkling clear . . .

sounds good tho.

Is this it, Chowder? http://www.drinkoftheweek.com/drink_...#axzz4XTkQJ9J4

Or do you mean the brand name of whiskey, Tin Cup?

I have not tried either.

I was at the Class VI store the other day and they were out of the 1.75 ptr bottles of Marker's Mark so got the 1.75 ltr bottle of Beam's Black and it's very smooth. It's been double barreled so it's a bit darker than Makers. It came with a $3 off coupon and no tax so I got it for $33.

stumbled over a "let's rate the booze" article the other day and it featured Tin Cup Whiskey. or bourbon, or whatever . . .

the purveyor does not actually distill all of it, it's blended with other brands, and 'cut' with Rocky Mountain water to adjust the proof to 84%

now....distilling booze is really an art form - and to get this "right" all the time quite a feat. consider all the hoo-hah about "single malt" scotch / whisky / booze . . .

dunno, dunnokare, nice taste.
