I enjoy a gin martini every so often.
Bombay saphire or hendricks gin.
Olive (stuffed with blue cheese sometimes)
Few drops vermouth

Also I like a sidecar once in a while too.
Cognac
Cointreau
Lemon juice

Good stuff.

Muddle the fruit, sugar and bitters. Add a couple of ice cubes, then pour in the bourbon. Some people like to add a splash of soda water.

Love the classic Old Fashioned and you can use either whiskey, brandy or bourbon and the classic does
take soda.
My favorite and no one has done it best other than in New Orleans is the Sazerac;
1 sugar cube, 2 dashed bitters, 1 1/2 oz rye whiskey, 1/2oz Pernod (has to be Pernod) & 3 mint leaves.

Add Pernod to empty rocks glass, swirl and discard excess. Place sugar cube in glass and add bitters and
muddle. Add whiskey, fill with ice and garnish with a lemon twist,
