There's an epic beer snobbery thread, why not an epic cocktail snobbery thread?

Manhattan's made with a specific bourbon? Old-fashions?

Gin and tonics?

Vodka martinis not properly martini's because only gin martinis are properly martinis?

Let's be snobs about this. We've all watched Mad Men...

Gin, tonic, splash of elderflower syrup.

Alternatively, vodka straight with lemon-lavender syrup.

Not a fancy drink, but I will NOT drink a Red Bull Vodka unless I see the can. It's more "company pride" than anything, but seriously if I ask for a Red Bull vodka, please don't try to serve me Roaring Lion, or any other competitor without disclosing "we do not serve Red Bull here" or "we only have *insert energy drink*". If someone orders a Stella, and you don't have it, do you serve them a Bud Light?

I will only drink a caipirinha if the cachaca was stolen by pirates from a Prime Minister or higher and the simple syrup was made with the blood plasma of an Oscar winning actor. The limes can be from Walgreens for all I care

But can they be the sickly, flavorless things from Wal-Mart?!

And, Katy, I challenge you to drink a Monster and vodka and not recoil in revulsion. It's beyond terrible...

But when you pay for free drinks with VIP tickets to Nocturnal, you don't be a snob. You drink the well drinks. :((

Anyhow: Manhattan with Maker's. I'm not a proponent of Maker's Mark generally, but goddamn, it makes for some fine Manhattans.

Also, for anyone who is or ever will be near San Francisco, this place makes the best handmade cocktails I've ever experienced:

No idea if the SpeakEasy aspect is legit or just a good marketing ploy, but this place has a ton of charm and appeal beyond the unbelievable cocktails.
PS: Like, seriously, come visit the Bay Area, and I will f'ing treat you to whatever you want at B&B. Any excuse to drink there is a good excuse.

Jack and coke is my drink. Always has been, always will be. I also like Pina Coladas so long as they are made well.

I'm a fan of the Sazerac.

For Manhattans, I still prefer a rye Manhattan and I love Bulleit Rye. But I also love a bourbon Manhattan, and I prefer Woodford Reserve or Buffalo Trace, just a little stronger flavor to stand up to the vermouth. Makers is too sweet & boring. My snobbery extends beyond the choice of liquor though - it's really the rest that makes it. You have to have quality Angostura bitters-- or orange bitters. I almost won't even drink a Manhattan that is garnished with anything less than a plump, house-made brandied cherry. And a high quality vermouth or unique vermouth sub will really make the cocktail outstanding.

Now come on guys, a mixed drink is NOT the same as a cocktail. And, you really can't include call drinks in an Epic Snobbery conversation. We can do better than that.

I love a good Gin Rickey. I also love ordering them because the bartenders usually have to look them up.

If one solitary bit of maraschino cherry gets muddled in my Old Fashioned, UGH! It's a garnish, not an ingredient you fools!

There's a bar here in Raleigh, Fox Liquor bar, where you can only order the cocktails that are on the menu. No call drinks of any kind. I have yet to try it out, but I really want to go!

I am so fucking picky about Sidecars. It's a vice. It's worse than that, because I haven't been able to figure out what the ideal proportions *are*, I just know that this one hot chick at the goth bar makes them perfectly every time and I never order anything else from her. And she is the only one. If she ever moves, I am in shit.

Excellent point and exactly the kind of snobbery I'm talkin' about.

Rye SF is where I had my first cocktail using foamed egg whites...

And it was delicious. I just wish I could remember what else they put in that cocktail (I know it was garnished with a mint leaf and was whiskey based)

I've actually discovered it's oddly hard to find a well-made Manhattan. There's almost always at least a tad too much vermouth and/or bitters, and some assholes apparently put a splash of grenadine in, which is a bizarre and unholy crime against my palate.

Amen, sista.

The weather is so nice this weekend that I think I'll plant some more mint. Summertime = mojitos.

Bourbon, ice, soda water.
Anything else just gets in the way of the bourbon and I like fizzy in my drink.
As for what kind of bourbon, well...Bulleit, Buffalo Trace, Woodford, are my usual go to's but Eagle Rare and Basil Hayden are probably my favs.
Also I like Tiki Bars, mint juleps, and stealing Senator Hideki's husband away because he loves me more. Yeah that's right, lets fight about it.

Recently I've been into this alternate version of the Vesper Martini from 007 Casino Royale. I was actually making this drink at BC this year.

Vesper Martini Alt.:
3 oz. Gin
1 oz. vodka
1/2 Lillet
4 dashes Angostura Bitters
Orange peel (for the orange flame and garnish)
