An old one from 1882, it's Curaçao Punch:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=766
0.5 tablespoon sugar (alter to taste); 2 or 3 dashes of fresh lemon juice; 1.0 ounce soda water; 1.0 ounce brandy (Martell cognac specified); 2.0 ounces orange curaçao; 1.0 ounce Jamaican rum (full-bodied specified). In a bar glass or goblet, combine the sugar, lemon juice, and soda water.

Okay, now that the latest +Bad Voltage show is up, I get to see what I missed.

Looks like it was a lot of fun. Kind of reminded me of baseball - more fun to watch if you are there.

The sound could have been better and it would have been really nice to see the screen as well as the stage (the stage video was great, though).

Needed more +Jeremy Garcia but outside of that, well done.

Wow. First time i've seen this. An inaccessible website due to Shabbat.

If the website is breaking Shabbat serving normal pages, isn't any reaction to a request breaking it also? Shouldn't they take the whole server offline, not even allowing for tcp handshake...
Religion(s) just have too many loopholes in their scriptures for interpretation and crazy ideas...

My friend Justin is the cocktail chef at the Oakleaf Restaurant in Pittsboro, NC.

Every week he does "Throwback Thursday" which is a menu of classic cocktails for $8 (normally $12).

I thought this week's menu was classic, and when I got to the last one I literally LOL'd.

My experience installing +OmniROM 6.0 on my Nexus 6:

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2016/01/25/omnirom-6-0/
For the last few days it has been hard to remain true to my free and open source roots. I guess I've been spoiled lately with almost everything I try out “just working”, but it wasn't so with my upgrade to OmniROM 6.0 on my Nexus 6 (shamu). I've been a big fan of OmniROM since it came out, ...

A cocktail featuring port and creme, it's the Chatham Hotel Special:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=753

Isn't it pretty?
I like the name of this cocktail because I live in Chatham County, North Carolina, and you don't see the word “Chatham” all that often (I always have to add it to my spell checkers). It was named after a now gone hotel in New York City. This is one of two cocktails in the book featuring port ...

My friend Jeremy Ford was kind enough to share his hack for getting a cool weathermap on the OpenNMS web page.

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2016/02/01/add-a-weather-widget-to-opennms-home-screen/
I was recently at a client site where I met a man named Jeremy Ford. He's sharp as a knife and even though, at the time, he was new to OpenNMS, he had already hacked a few neat things into the system (open source FTW). Weathermap on OpenNMS Home Page. One of those was the addition of a ...

A rum drink with a long name, it’s the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Cocktail:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=740

With a hat tip for +Mount Gay Rum
Just like gin and lemon are meant for each other, a similar thing can be said for rum and lime. The big addition to the Royal Bermuda is Falernum. Falernum is a sweet syrup that has a slightly spicy flavor, but nothing like the Allspice Dram in drinks like the Lion's Tail.

Here is Milk Punch:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=730

which includes a bonus recipe and a story from my misspent youth.
1.0 ounce brandy; 0.5 ounce dark rum; 2.0 teaspoons simple syrup; 2.0 dashes vanilla extract; 4.0 ounces whole milk. Shake the ingredients all together in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice. Strain into a tumbler half full of shaved ice (Shaved ice was more like snow than crushed ice, ...

Excellent service. My wife's purse was stolen which included our addresses and various keys, so we were very eager to get the house re-keyed. Not only did they show up promptly, they were able to re-key the truck while they were here. Professional, prompt and affordable.
