Mixology Monday XII:: Wrap-up

It's taken me a while to get it done, but here's the wrap-up from another successful Mixology Monday. I think I've got everyone who submitted a post for MM listed here and I've include a few other links that were either related to our topic, or posted on Monday and peripherally related. Here we go:


Matt, over at My Bar, Your Bar has picked up some Wild Turkey Rye Whiskey to experiment with and has come up with a variation on a boomerang. He found the results pleasing, and it sounds pretty good to me as well.

Thinking Bartender and cocktail researcher extraordinaire George Sinclair looks at the influence of Dick Bradsell on the UK scene, and includes a recipe and some background on the Manhattan.

Michael Dietsch from A Dash of Bitters presents the High Hat based on Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey. He also explores the neighborhoods of Brooklyn, and throws together a concoction to avoid. Good job Michael if you're not falling down on occasion, you're not trying.

The EGullet community has contributed several recipes in the Mixology Monday threads for this month. This one covers the Red Feather Boa, Metropole, Bob Tailed Nag, Suburban, and more.

Phil used Rittenhouse Bonded Rye Whiskey in the Sons of Baracktail cocktail. The recipe is something like: “Blah, blah de blahdy da, rye, blah blah, juice, blah blah.” You'll have to get over there and read the post for all the details.

Paul at Cocktail Chronicles has been exploring Rye Whiskey lately, and stays with it for the Colleen Bawn . Rye, Chartreuse and Benedictine sound like a powerful combination.

Rick at Kaiser Penguin gives us the Adam and Eve, using Elmer T. Lee Bourbon. He also takes a look at Difford's Guide and several other recipes. Another classic picture too!

Kurt provides us with the recipe for the Liberal, which he figures is a variation of the classic Manhattan. This is a good one to try if you're looking for a few more places to use Amer Picon.


Seamus covers whisky and whiskey. He also throws in an interesting original recipe with ideas for modifications. If Our Language Was Whiskey.

In my post, I mentioned that someone else had gone in the direction I had. In an example of "great minds think alike" (or sheer coincidence) Darcy has posted his version of the Rye-Tai. (I used whiskey and he used whisky.)

Haalo at Cook (almost) Anything at Least Once has posted a nice looking little cooler called the Canadian Summer. I'm not sure if Canadian Club is whisky or whiskey. Take a look at the great picture, try the recipe, and check out Paalo's vintage coaster! (and leave a comment about the coaster)

Outside of Mixology Monday.

Robert Hess isn't doing Mixology Monday this time, but on Monday he posted about Applejack, an original America "whiskey."

Eric Asimov at The Pour isn't doing Mixology Monday either, but he recently covered Bourbon, Moonshine and the ATF regulations.

Next Time.

The next Mixology Monday is scheduled for March 12th and hosted at Saving the World, One Drink at a Time . Keep track of all the upcoming events at Paul's main Mixology Monday page.

You can also say that if I'm not falling down occasionally, I'm not drinking enough!
