Troy makes a cocktail and talks about it.

    Martini

    Martini

    The martini — so simple, right? Remember, the possibilities are
    nearly endless with this classic. Tweak it and adjust it. You'll find a
    combination that suits you.
    1 ½ ounce (45 ml) Plymouth gin
    1 ½ ounce (45 ml) Dolin blanc vermouth
    Combine the gin and vermouth in a mixing glass with ice. Stir briskly until
    well chilled. Serve in a chilled coupe or cocktail glass. Garnish with a
    lemon twist.

    Shrub!

    Shrub!

    A "superior efficacy against putrefaction" as well as a delicious
    byproduct of my pickled strawberries, shrub is a mix of fruit and vinegar
    along with sugar. Add it to your favorite spirit (or seltzer) for a zippy,
    tart, and refreshing drink.
    1 ½ ounces blanco tequila
    ¾ ounce strawberry shrub
    ¾ ounce fresh lime juice
    Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Pour
    into glass, with or without ice, garnish with a lime wheel. Rim the glass
    with salt, if you like.

    Eeyore's Requiem

    Eeyore's Requiem

    Deliciously bitter and orangey with a hint of mint. This sipper originated
    at The Violet Hour in Chicago at the hands of Toby Maloney, owner of that
    bar and many others.
    1 ½ ounce Campari
    ½ ounce London dry gin (Tanqueray)
    ¼ ounce Cynar
    ¼ ounce Fernet Branca
    1 ounce Dolin Blanc Vermouth
    15 drops orange bitters
    3 strips orange peel
    In a mixing glass with ice, add all ingredients except the orange
    peels. Stir until chilled and strain into a coupe. Twist all the orange
    peels over the drink to express the oils. Discard the peels.

    Clover Club

    Clover Club

    Created at Philadelphia's Clover Club, that society's eponymous cocktail is
    a refreshing, silky classic. Please check out the links to the various
    documents about the Clover Club itself — at least for the awe
    inspiring display of facial hair.
    1 ½ ounces gin
    ½ ounce dry vermouth
    ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
    ½ ounce raspberry syrup
    ¼ ounce egg white
    Do not put ice in the shaker yet.
    Pour all the ingredients into the shaker. Dry shake for 10 seconds. Add ice
    to the shaker and shake for at least another 10 seconds. Serve in a coupe,
    garnished with a fresh raspberry.
    See this Imbibe article (http://imbibemagazine.com/clover-club) for the
    easy raspberry syrup recipe. I have seen recipes that suggest substituting
    grenadine for the raspberry syrup. Making the syrup is really easy and and
    it's delicious, so do give it a try.

    Seelbach

    Seelbach

    The Seelbach cocktail has an interesting and checkered history. While it
    may not be exactly what it claims, it's a delicious addition to our
    cocktail
    1 oz. Bourbon whiskey
    1/2 oz. Cointreau or other triple sec
    7 dashes Angostura bitters
    7 dashes Peychaud's bitters
    5 oz. Brut Champagne or dry sparkling wine
    Combine Bourbon, triple sec, and bitters in a mixing glass, add ice, and
    stir. Pour into a champagne flute or large cocktail glass. Top with the
    sparkling wine and give a light stir. Garnish with an orange twist.
    NOTE: Well, I made a mistake. I say in the episode this is shaken. It should, in fact, be stirred. Sorry about the confusion.

    Ramos Gin Fizz

    Ramos Gin Fizz

    In 1888, Henry Ramos invented a New Orleans classic cocktail that was so
    labor intensive he employed a relay of bartenders to shake it. What a sight
    that must have been. The subtle citrus flavors and the creamy texture make
    this one a really treat.
    Note that this is served up in a Collins glass, so don't add ice to the
    serving glass.
    2 ounces London dry gin
    1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice*
    1/2 ounce fresh lime juice*
    1/2 ounce simple syrup
    1 ounce heavy cream
    1 egg white**
    3 drops of orange flower water
    1 drop of vanilla extract
    club soda
    Everything except the club soda goes into the shaker without ice. Dry shake
    for about a minute. Add ice and shake again for at least two minutes (feel
    free to try to shake it for 12 minutes). Carefully pour into a tall glass
    without ice. Pour enough club soda into the glass to fill it up. Drop in a
    straw and serve.
    *In the podcase, I said 1 ounce. It should be 1/2 ounce.
    **If you are squeamish about using raw egg whites, you can substitute
    pasteurized or powered. But I wouldn't recommend it.
