I prefer Beefeater stored in the freezer; use 2-3 oz with 1/2 oz Noilly Prat vermouth; stir, then add olive (sometimes I use a blue cheese stuffed one).

Gin & Tonic

Again, Beefeater for me, 2-3 oz over ice; add tonic & lime wedge. One problem I'm running into is most tonics are too sweet and use high fructose corn syrup. Q Tonic is good, but expensive & hard to find.


1 oz brandy (I usually use Remy VS), 1 oz Cointreau, 3/4 oz lemon juice; shake with ice then strain into a martini glass and add flamed orange peel for garnish.

I think Brad's vodka & grapefuit juice cocktail is called a Greyhound.
