    1 1/2 Grey Goose, 1 lime juice, pinch of baker's sugar.

    2 dashes of bitters (preferably Peychaud's or Campari or the lightest orange bitters you can find) over one sugar cube, fill with Veuve Clicquot and a float of Grand Marnier... garnish with an orange.

    Doesn't hurt to have a bottle of the more standard liqueurs on hand, such as triple sec, curacao, kahlua (if you're into that sort of thing), etc. They're relatively cheap and open you up to a ton of basic recipes.

    Also, for future reference, try Martini & Rossi Vermouth. IMO it makes a much better martini than the Gallos.

    One of my favorites is the almond-flavored Amaretto. If you ever find yourself with a bottle of mid-level whiskey or scotch (read: keep it away from the upper shelf single malts), a dash of Amaretto goes a long way. (or you can measure out 1 part Amaretto, 1 part Scotch for a Godfather)

    My last ditch effort to acquire vermouth yesterday was a late-night trip to Ralphs on the way home.

    Gallo was all they had and at $5 a pop, didn't figure I could go wrong.


    Thanks for all the suggestions so far.

    As I try 'em, I'll post my thoughts.

    why, hello there...



    btw, i'm sure everyone knew i was implying the scotch was too be enjoyed one at a time, not mixed. i'm not a huge fan of mixed drinks in general.

    Have yet to get any more ingredients, so working with what I have, last night I had:

    1) a gin & sweet vermouth martini - I liked it a little better than the dry martini
    2) a vodka & dry vermouth martini - smoother than the gin martini
