Seems like anything naval related, especially from that area, would be rum based. Although absinthe was the rage during that time.

Thinking about getting some small barrels to age Manhattans and Negronis then just bottling them for future use.

I used to use barrels, but now I throw one of these in a 3 QT glass container. Much more versatile IMHO:

Interesting! Good to know. Much easier. The only problem becomes now I want to buy about a dozen different bottles of Vermouth/Amaro to "test" with...

Mangiare? Vinoevelo? Sunny? VinT? CSM? night around a dining room table mixing drinks for a few hours while our significant others look on in increasing disgust and resignation?

I used to barrel age a lot of different cocktails. Some worked...others didn't. Always use high proof booze like Rittenhouse. These are my favorites. Good luck:

Employees Only Manhattan
Boulivardier (2-1-1)
Negroni (2-1-1)
Porn Star Martini
2 oz Absolut vanilla vodka
1.5 oz Passion fruit juice
0.5 oz Passoa passionfruit liqueur
0.5 oz Monin vanilla syrup
0.5 oz Lime juice
2 oz Champagne

Add all ingredients (except for the champagne) to ice filled cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve with a shot glass filled with champagne.

Made a batch of Del Frisco's VIP cocktail for my cousin's Halloween party. Super easy to make and the chicks dig it. Competes with the Woo-Woo for panty remover status Wink

VIP
2 ripe pineapples cored and chopped
1.75 L Svedka clementine vodka

Mix everything in a large container. Let marinate for 2 weeks in a cool dark place, while shaking every day. Strain out vodka. Crush pineapple and squeeze the juice out - or just use a juicer. Mix everything together, bottle and store in fridge.

Add 4 oz to cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.
Made Chocolate Martinis for the Christmas party - the ladies love em. Pre-make a large batch and just pour 4 or 5 oz into your shaker:

The Last Word
Equal parts gin, green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and fresh lime juice. Shaken, and served straight up. Not bad.

If you liked that, try a modern riff from Phil Ward:

Final Ward
0.75 oz Rittenhouse Rye
0.75 oz Green Chartreuse
0.75 oz Luxardo Maraschino
0.75 oz Lemon Juice

A great summertime cooler, and perfect for the pool as it is a very innocent looking cocktail!
