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.

Many moons ago I invented what is now known as the "Skykomish Sunrise". I like a bit of tartness over sweetness, so this recipe hits the spot. The key is using Simply Brand which is the best of the breakfast juices

Tito's (1, 2, 3, 4 or many fingers - to each his own)
Simply Brand Limeade
Splash of either Simply Brand Grapefruit, Mango Lemonade, Cranberry or Pineapple depending on what you like.

Mix well. Pour into a stainless steel water bottle (or several). Garnish with a bit of leafy greens to taste. Sit in the front seat of the drift boat and proceed to annoy the stick man to the fullest of your abilities while catching some fishes - but not as many as you should be catching if'n you hadn't decided that 7 fingers would be much better than 2. This time tested recipe never fails to produce results.

"A John Daly is an alcoholic mixed drink consisting of lemonade, iced tea, and vodka, named after American golfer John Daly. It can also be made with lemonade and sweet tea vodka (a vodka infusion). The drink is an alcoholic version of the Arnold Palmer (also named after an American golfer)."

My all time after work hot day round off the rough edges drink, so many things to love about this one, add some fizzy water to improve over the original.

1/2 ice
1/2 vodka
1/2 Iced tea
1/2 lemonade
1/2 Soda water

...just that easy.
