Default Tonight's cocktail creation

2 parts cachaca
1/2 part dry vermouth
1/2 part absinthe
lime on the rim

A big cachaca works well here. Shake it baby!

That reminds me of the French decoullage - equal parts rhum agricole blanc and absinthe - it's a real rocker after a long day. I hope you aren't planning on driving out to dinner after a couple of those.

I'm at mac's house in Southern California and he had a few small tangerines on the counter so I muddled one into a glass, added a measure of Neisson Blanc, a little sugar cane syrup and a slice of lime. Mac's an old friend from Florida who went to London last year with me. It's nice to have friend's with a lot of airline miles, who knows his way around a rum bar.

My tonights cocktail is a wonderful mojito with Havana Club anejo blanco, sugar, mint, soda, ice and grilled lime juice.

Grilled lime juice? Can you elaborate how we do this??

I am envisioning slicing the lime into wheels, toss em on the grill, then juice em?

I have become a grilled fruit juice for drinks convert...next experiment for me will be grilled pink grapefruit juice..

GRILLED LIME MOJITO

1-2 teaspoon powdered sugar, Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces), 4 mint leaves, 1 sprig of mint
Havana Club white Rum (2 ounces) or other suitable rum, 2 ounces club soda

Cut the lime in 2 halves and grill the cut side until you get nice grill marks. Let cool a little before squeezing it. Place the mint leaves into a glass and squeeze the juice from the grilled lime over it.You'll want about two ounces of lime juice, so it may not require all of the juice from a single lime. Add the powdered sugar, then gently smash the mint into the lime juice and sugar with a muddler.
Add ice (preferably crushed) then add the rum and stir, and top off with the club soda.
Garnish with a mint sprig.

Grilled lime juice would also be nice on fish or chicken skewers..

You can get more than 2 oz from one lime?

I was wondering about that myself, if I'm close 2 oz is about 57ml, which is a lot of lime juice from one lime.

Tonight contained no white rum, but it was a delicious Mai-Tai none the less.
El Dorado 12 and Appleton V/X 1 oz. each
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz. Orange Curacao
1/2 oz. Fee Bros. Orgeat
1/4 oz. Rock Candy Syrup
Shake with a lime shell.

Yummy!
