boozing it up. and I mean UP.  
Last night, my four (4) three-liter (3L) cocktail aging barrels arrived. Hooray!

Except, uhm, this means that I need 12L of spirits to start using them. If your typical bottle holds 750mL, this means I need 16 bottles, assuming I use the full contents of each. So, uh, I guess I'm investing in booze this weekend.
I'm feeling: excitedexcited

Cocktail aging barrels? I don't think of cocktails as something that gets aged. Care to elaborate?

Also, investing in booze is never a bad option.

We have a rye manhattan aging in our 1L barrel right now. In the new ones, I'm thinking:

1. bourbon manhattan
2. classic negroni
3. martinez
4. boulevardier

Or maybe something with tequila.

Sweet. Now I want one of these objects.

I'm thinking that 1.5 L bottles are your friend :-)

(We're finally getting at least one as well, been wanting to for years and it's now the right time!)

Since it was 1/2 the price of Buffalo Trace, we tried the Trader Joe's Kentuky Bourbon. In a blind triangle test, it's surprisingly similar (not all testers got the match right). In a non-blind Manhattan test, the TJ's seems a little more alcohol-y, but you might give it a try.
