I've got all sorts of mason jars in the cellar, filled with Armadale, Zyr, Ketel One...or Plymouth/Tanqueray gin...packed with sausage. Of course, sausages differ depending on your mood. Summer sausage is good for a summery martini; I use Mettwurst if going for a smoky martini, maybe some chorizo if I'm after something with that south of the border flair, olé! Chill, strain, pour, garnish with a quarter-sized sausage affixed to the rim of the glass or just a twist of casing. Mmm-mmm!

If haven't tried the soy variety yet, because my vegetarian friends don't like these. The dogs really lap 'em up, though.

Dag, Steve, you know your stuff. I have been a devotee of the Manhattan since I was a lad. But I've never been able to get past the fact that it's a Manhattan, and I abhor Yankees. The King of Cocktails is the Sazerac.

Read this, then read it again, then read it again, then go to the store, and then get drinkin', people!

When I'm feeling particularly wicked I use an orange rind instead of lemon.

I make a habit of donating bottles of Peychaud bitters to LA bars I frequent, just so they'll have it. If you're somewhere, the Biltmore, say, and you get a Sazerac, the guy is gonna pick up Angostura, and you have to stop him. Peychaud's!!! That they have it there -- you have me to thank. (You're welcome.)
