In a pinch, there may not be anything wrong with that, but even when you are simply making a drink for yourself, you deserve to do things properly and serve it up right! Wine drinkers have long known that different wines taste better in particularly shaped glassware (Thank You Riedel!) In much the same way choosing the right glass for your cocktail can make a big difference in the final results. With cocktails it isn’t so much the nuances of the flavor profile, but instead it is the functionality of the form, the visual presentation, size of the drink, comfort, and elegance as well. Drinks that need to be served with ice obviously need to be in a larger glass than those that don’t. Iced drinks should also be served in glasses with more vertical sides like a typical “Rocks” glass as opposed to an angle-sided “Martini” glass. Many times, the cocktail glassware you might see for sale in various houseware stores, while well intentioned, only exacerbates the problem. Most of the “Martini” style glasses you will see for sale are designed to hold 7, 8, 9, or even more ounces. When you think about a true Martini, it is mostly booze, with a little water from the melting ice. A properly sized Martini will only be a little over 3 ounces of liquid once it is made. If you put this into a 9 ounce glass, it will look like an insignificant drink, which may lead you to pour WAY too much into the glass. Even a “sour style” drink like a Cosmopolitan, should only be around 4 ounces when it is properly made, which is still too small for such a large glass. So even if you are simply preparing to make drinks for yourself at home, you should gather a small collection of glassware so you can treat every drink you make properly.

Bourbon Brothers review of Thomas H. Handy 2012 Release @BourbonBReviews @Blundon_Bourbon www.BlundonBourbonReview.blogspot.com
Whole leafy sprigs of spearmint mixed with a true decades old barrel leather. Craving that old mature flavor you used to be able to buy right off the shelf? This is it! Deep currents of red and orange fruit, licorice, espresso, and mint chocolate ice cream. Sweet mint and herbaceous to the very core. Long, leathery finish. The spice is about as bright and drinkable as it can be at this proof.
It's June 14th and that means it's "National Bourbon Day!" To honor America's Spirit, I sit down with four of the biggest uncut/unfiltered bourbons. We start with Booker's (at 126.6 proof), then Blanton's "Straight From The Barrel" (at 132.5 proof), then work up to E.H. Taylor Jr's "Barrel Proof" (at 134.5 proof) and end with the amazingly potent George T. Stagg (at a stagg-ering 141.4 proof). I know that was horrible. As of 6-14-13, my current bottle count stands at 1078 total bottles. I have 685 different ones in the bar & another 393 in back stock. I've now been actively collecting for the last 19 years and what started as a small basic bar has transformed (with the help & understanding of my wonderful wife) into what I think is a pretty nice collection. Thank you for watching and sharing in my hobby. Cheers!
This bourbon sells between $350-$750 on retail and after market. Wanted to give everyone a good review and chance to "try" before you buy. Hope this is helpful and you enjoy.
Last show of the year! The Boys get into some hot People’s Court talk which leads to a debate about the average age of security guards.

Song of the South comes up somehow which leads into an old classic staple, Book and Records. Is Disneyland Racist? Why Kathleen Turner should take over the Hoskins role in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Was The Golden Child any good? The important issue of PTSD among veterans of the Mattress Price Wars is tackled. More Star Wars Talk. (No Spoilers This Time) This week on the menu is Sazerac 18.
