Nothing goes better with good food than a good cocktail. For those that love to partake is a cocktail or two, post your favorites here.

I'll start things off with a few of my favorites:

The Trinidad Sour

1 oz Angostura Bitters
1 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz Rye

Combine the ingredients in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake well to chill. Strain in to a chilled glass.

Golden Sands Swizzle

1 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Lemon Hart 151 Demera Rum
1 oz fresh pineapple juice
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz Falernum Syrup

Combine ingredients in a tall collins glass and fill 3/4 with crushed ice; swizzle until the glass is frosted. Tip with additional crushed ice; garnish with a sprig of spearment and a grate of fresh nutmeg.

Finally a classic:

The Negroni

1 oz Gin
1 oz Compari
1 oz sweet vermouth (not the cheap crap)

Still all the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a rocks glass with a single ice cube, or strain neat in to a martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist and don't be afraid to get plenty of that orange oil in the cocktail when using your channel knife.
