What's everyone like as far as liquors? Mixed drinks? Is the board mostly a whisk(e)y group, or vodka, or tequila? Long Islands vs. Manhattans vs. Swizzles?

Rum and Coke is my usual mixed drink, with straight rum on the rocks and Corona as my order of preference. And while I'm not a fan of them myself, but I've been told I make a hell of a Bloody Mary.

What's your process on the Bloody Mary? I love 'em, and it's a drink with a zillion different 'correct' recipes. A lot of people buy a container of mix, so I like seeing home-made recipes.

My standard method was vodka, V8 juice, a couple dashes of pickapeppa sauce, a bit of rock salt, just a hint of cholula sauce and a celery stick.

It's kind of a lazy mary, but it has the important bits.

Also, I leave out the lemon juice you usually have in a BM since, well, we just never had lemon juice on hand at my house.

But the rock salt? Improves anything that calls for regular salt. It's magical.

Yum. I usually use sea salt, preferably the rock type in a grinder. Same with pepper, gotta grind fresh.

I use a mix called Dimitri's, which has great stuff in it (I use it in sauces and marinades, too). I typically use straight tomato juice, a bit of lemon juice, and bacon vodka if I have it.

For heat, I typically have several sauces around, but I usually use sriracha (the Huy Fong variety), and a few drops of Da Bomb hot sauce if someone wants heat. Fresh-ground salt and pepper. If I'm making these at a partty, I'll have all sorts of pickled veggies, usually asparagus, okra, peperoncinis, plus celery sticks and olives (usually bleu cheese stuffed and garlic/jalapeno stuffed). I've also, on occasion, bought tiny, baby-sized bell peppers.

My real area of expertise, though, is esoteric liqueurs.

Lately one of my favorites has been a cherry 7-Up with a double shot of Fireball.

Not exactly complex. I just call it a Redhot.

Cake Vodka and Orange Soda.

My bar at a private party I work at a local convention every year. From about an hour after start (party opened at 8) until 2:30 when I closed the bar, I was 3-4 orders deep all night. Add a week of buying and packing, 4 hours to get everything up to the room and unpacked, and 4 more to pack and load afterward…

Not shown: the shelf full of mixers behind me. And the Johnnie Walker Blue Label some kind person brought.

That sounds awesome! My favorite drink with that stuff is Fireball, ginger beer (I use Blenheim red-cap ginger ale) and a homemade habanero-pepper simple syrup. The flavors work together well, and the different kinds of burn (pepper, ginger, cinnamon) act on different parts of your mouth.
