This section contains recipes for my favorite drinks. The instructions are for a single serving unless otherwise specified. The recipes are also very specific to my tastes and equipment, so should not be considered a "classic" version and may not translate to your equipment such as size settings for a coffee bean grinder. While I have and continue to try new mixed drinks or coffee methods, many times--even if I liked the drink--I would prefer one of my existing favorites. Therefore this section will probably not contain many entries. However, if something new replaces an old favorite, I will keep the old favorite around although with a link to what replaced it. The recipes and techniques found in this section are mostly for my own reference as unless I am making a given drink most every day such as coffee or tea, I tend to forget how to make it. I may also reference specific brands. Again, this is my own taste and other products may be used for example Beefeater instead of Bombay Sapphire for gin.
I like a plain gin-based martini, usually with a little added olive brine, and stirred--not shaken. I really wanted to like the vodka "shaken, not stirred" martini so I could do a (bad) James Bond impression when ordering it. Although bartenders may get that all the time and not really find it funny.
