last night we took the crock pot and sliced some oranges and threw in some cinnamon sticks and then mixed with a shitload of whiskey and then walked down Christmas Tree Lane. It was festive as crap.

Red Romeo (formerly known as a Todd Haley):

-2 shots extremely cheap vodka
-fill up rest of glass with red bull (doesn't matter what size glass)
-add enough grenadine to make it red

This would typically be consumed in the Union basement in westport, but you can make it yourself at home now kids!  :D

It's a great cocktail. Basically a modified Aviation. If you like mezcal sub out the gin with a good one. Then it is a Last of the Oxacans. The HiLo in Manhattan serves it with a serrano pepper shaken in it.

Side note- this thread is pretty embarrassing for what I'd expect from goEMAW. I'll blame it on the delayed reemergence of the cocktail scene though.

Thanks. Will try tonight.

To your side note, it is pretty awful, my contributions included.  I got Dave Arnold's book "Liquid Intelligence" for Christmas and have been working my way through it. The Last Word spec I used was from that, although just as part of a more comprehensive list rather than a detailed technique or drink.

 Guys, I think I’m turning into a Martini dood. Really enjoying it. A very classy and efficient way to drink.

My personal fave-
3 oz Dry Gin stirred in ice then strained into a glass that’s been “washed” with dry vermouth, and garnished with about 6 olives (no extra juice)

two of these suckers is a perfect night cap

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Don't listen to the haters, keep it up.

Advice from a another very classy poster (Chingon):

1. Switch up the garnish every once in a while (lemon peel, pickled onion, pickled jalepeno slice, etc)
2. Use French vermouths (and don't listen to the "rinsers", use a real amount of it -- it tastes good!)
3. I like a shaken one about half of the time, the bitty ice pieces are a little burst of joy

Actually made a couple more like your recipe last night.

4 oz Gin
1 oz dry vermouth
Dash of orange bitters
Wiped and garnished with an orange peel.
Stirred not shaken

I liked it a lot
