No castigation intended - it was respect for your alcohol consumption! That recipe looks good. Bitter lemon would make a good mixer to charge a mojito with.

Thank you for the reprieve. that is very kind.

i have this measure http://cgi.ebay.com/Evan-Williams-Bo...QQcmdZViewItem
and it is clearly marked 2 and i filled it past the 2, but even all the way to the top it is barely 2 oz, so i am a dip-ship-- i thought i was pounding a 4 shots of booze in each drink, and it was really just 4 oz...

You are right about the bitter lemon. You guys across the pond have had this readily accessible for years right? Over here we are just now seeing it become available-- and i glad to see it. It is warming up over here and long drinks/ coolers do go well in the warm.

Bitter lemon goes great with pineapple juice also, i flipped a couple of those with rummy rum rum and it was delicious-- i will work out some measures and post it later.

Bitter lemon is a real old-school drink in the UK. It's kinda considered uncool now in all the cocktail bars...associated with middle-aged ladies and working mens clubs where it's drunk with gin.

That is hilarious.
i was in NYC a few years back and my friend and i were shopping. When she saw the Schweppes Bitter lemon on the shelf she wanted all of them-- i had to carry 7(?) bottles of it to her house in Dominican Harlem (the12 flights of stairs were the toughest . . .)

That is how un-available it use to be...

No castigation was intended here either. The recipe, as originally stated, just seemed to need a warning for those like myself who lack your capacity.

i am finishing #6 of the 'ACTUAL' 4 shot drinks.
i measured my shot glass before starting and it was 1 1/2 oz -ish.
4 Shots worked out to be a tad under 6 oz (or around 175 ml)
Whatever the exactt measure this last sip i am looking at is the end of a 1 liter bottle.
The drink:

4 shots rum
1 shot Pineapple juice
1 shot Schweppes bitter lemon

with a handful of frozen grapes.

Cheers.
