Stopped at Other Half FLX with the in-laws. Ordered some stouts, a Brett IPA & a triple dry hopped Citra IPA. Followed by an experimental West coast Pale Ale.
Then the sour late at night prepping food for dinner and lunches tomorrow. That sour was pure tropical juice with a slight tartness.
Tonight, I'm trying another cocktail that caught my attention for some reason. A Wisconsin-style Old Fashioned. (they make them with brandy instead of whiskey) Muddle a sugar cube, slice of orange, maraschino cherry (the cheap kind, not Luxardo) and several dashes of Angostura bitters. Add ice, 2 shots of brandy, and top up with Sprite or Fresca or seltzer, etc. (I used diet ginger ale because that's all I had except for tonic water) Garnish with another cherry and maybe an orange slice (I just did the cherry) This has potential. I need to get some Fresca or Squirt for the top-off. I tried another one with just more ice and brandy to fill the glass and it sucked until I added a splash of ginger ale. (it didn't take much to fix it) Who knew that a drink could be too strong to taste good?
