Who: Attapon De-Silva (B)

Spirits and others: Bacardi Ocho

Ingredient: Simple Syrup, Angostura Bitters

Garnish: Orange Twist, Maraschino Cherry

Method: Stirred

Glass: Highball

Words: An easy sipper boasting strong caramelized dried apricot and bits of spices from Bacardi along Angostura but not excessively aromatic. The Maraschino Cherry was a tart and little juicy finish.

Who: Vipop Jinaphan (Tor)

Spirits and others: Monkey Shoulder, Mancino Rosso Amaranto Vermouth

Ingredient: Angostura Bitters

Garnish: Lemon Twist

Method: Stirred

Glass: Coupe

Words: What really stands out on this one is the advance venture of Angostura, Lemon and Vermouth. It later reveal itself as a light and stream of toasty fresh and plump cherry. Giving a thin creaminess and light bitterness on your lips through your throat in the end.


4♦️   Vieux Carré, New Orleans, Louisiana, 1938

Q&A Cocktail Journey - 4 - Vieux Carre

Who: Attapon De-Silva (B)

Spirits and others: Wild Turkey, Hennessy VSOP, Bénédictine D.O.M. Liqueur

Ingredient: Peychaud’s Bitters, Hella Citrus Bitters

Garnish: Lemon Twist

Method: Stirred

Glass: Coupe

Words: The mixing glass has been rinsed with soda before straining out this dark brown liquid. Starting oddly as lightly fruity sour before the combo of Cognac flows with bitters and herbs from D.O.M. Turning into a long and nice vanilla candied cherry and a small tip of sour finish.


4♣️   Toronto, Manhattan, New York, 1948

Q&A Cocktail Journey - 4 - Toronto

Who: Attapon De-Silva (B)

Spirits and others: Canadian Club, Fernet Branca, Mancino Rosso Amaranto Vermouth

Ingredient: Black Maker Root Beer, Spanish Bitters

Garnish: Orange Twist

Method: Stirred

Glass: Trumpet Flute

Words: Who would have thought he would rinse the ice with root beer which contribute a nice sting to a circuit of sappy and heavy herbal. It then molds with heftily gentle whisky to lightly dry pause as the cream from Fernet returns to be a last stop.
