Here's one I made last night: Rum Dubonnet

1 3/4 oz. rum (I like Bacardi for this one)
1/4 oz. Dubonnet Rouge (a sweet wine made from fruit, since it's French, it's called an apertif)
splash of lemon juice

Mix into a shaker over ice and strain out into a cocktail glass. Delicious.

Now with the Dubonnet there's many cocktails you can make with fruit juice and just the dubonnet. I like mixing 1 oz. of Dubonnet with apple juice the most.

OK who doesn't like a Black and Tan? 1/2 stout, typically guiness, and 1/2 an pale ale or for a Half and Half, use 1/2 pale lager instead.

Just don't order it in Ireland ... the Black and Tans have a bad reputation to put down the start of the Irish revolution in the 1920s.

But who's ever tried a Black velvet?

1/2 Guiness stout
1/2 apple cider

This makes a poor man's black velvet. Substitute the cider with sparkling wine, like Mumm's, for a rich man's black velvet.

You can layer these by carefully pouring the lower alcohol content first, then the higher. Guiness is surprisingly light for a beer, so make sure whichever you have as the other half, to pour later. But in reality, mixing isn't bad, and even if you do layer it, it's all mixed up after the first sip.

I'm continuing to explore Gin-based drinks and today's no different:

Martinet:

2 parts Gin
1 part lime juice
1 dash vermouth

(Note: if you like stronger drinks, make it with 3/4 part lime juice, going less will make it very strong).

Pour contents into a shaker and either stir or shake. Strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy! Maybe this is just me, but when the drink warmed up a bit, it added depth. Or maybe it was the alcohol talking. Man, gin is evil with me.

Now here's one of my favorites, and it's got a fancy name:

Coronation:

equal parts Vermouth, Gin, and Dubonnet Rouge

Pour into a glass with ice and stir. DELICIOUS!

Kinda sweet for my taste, but it's good! My wife, who likes sweet drinks, thinks it tastes kinda like this one Russian honey based sherry.
