The Algonquin Cocktail, which isn't a good as the Algonquin Round Table.

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=504
I really thought I'd like this cocktail. I like rye and I thought it would go well with pineapple juice, and I really like the name. The Algonquin is a hotel in New York City that is best known as the site of the “Algonquin Round Table“, a daily gathering of literary, entertainment and art ...

I think this cocktail requires that it be consumed in mass quantities in the presence of witty literary conversation to be appreciated. No insipid sipping.

An introduction to the Bad Voltage Team, performing Live at the +OpenNMS Foundation Europe Conference at the end of September:

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2015/08/21/ouce-2015-bad-voltage-live/
Every year at the OpenNMS Users Conference (OUCE) we have a good time. In fact, learning a lot about OpenNMS goes hand in hand with having fun. At this year's SCaLE conference, the team behind the Bad Voltage podcast was there to do a live version of the show. You can watch it on-line and see it ...

I am lucky that +Justin Peregoy at the Oakleaf is happy to share his cocktail recipes with me. 

This is my current favorite.

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=495
1.50 ounces rye (Redemption Recommended); 0.50 ounce peach juice; 0.50 “brown” sugar simple syrup; 0.25 ounce fresh lemon juice; 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters. Stir vigorously in an iced glass, and strain into a cocktail glass over ice. Garnish with sliced peaches.

There are so many variants for peaches, from hard sour free to soft sweet clings. They all taste a lot different. I would expect a well ripened sweet peach would be best here, but they come in only briefly each year and that time has passed already.

With this year's OpenNMS Users Conference a little over a month away, I plan to be writing about it more in the run up to the event. I figured I should probably start on why you should go and, better yet, how to convince your boss to pay for the trip. First off, if you aren't using OpenNMS, ...

The Fairbank Cocktail:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=466
One of the fun things about this little experiment is trying to locate all of the ingredients for these vintage cocktails. I bought a bottle of crème de noyeaux at Binny's in Chicago, and I just wanted to point out to my two readers the effort I go to in order to get an ingredient that I will ...

The course was great. We tasted four cocktails - Justin had made one for us when we arrived and then we made three others. The topic for this month was "punch" and we did one with gin, one with rum, one with tequila and one with rye.

Along with the drinks was food. Small portions, more like tapas, but we had a cheese plate, roasted red pepper bisque, gnocchi, field peas and finally chocolate.

For $45 it was a steal. Looking forward to September and "outdoor drinks".

The Barnum (Was Right) Cocktail:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=484
2.0 ounces gin; 1.0 ounce apricot-flavored brandy (the best is Marie Brizard's Apry); 0.5 ounce fresh lemon juice; 2 dashes Angostura bitters. Shake in an iced cocktail shaker, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. Okay, so let's get the name out of the way.

A classic drink from the late 1800s:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=479
I decided to make this cocktail simply because it is referenced in another recipe that I plan to make next. It's hot here at the moment so anything cold with “gin and juice” is welcome. The name refers to a club in Burma (now Myanmar) frequented by British officers in the late 1800s through ...

In the vein of the Brooklyn, I present The Liberal:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=472
0.75 ounce 100-proof Wild Turkey; 0.75 ounce Italian vermouth (Carpano Antica); 3 dashes Torani Amer; 1 generous dash orange bitters. Stir energetically in an iced mixing glass, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cocktail cherry. I was recently in a cocktail class where the ...

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.
