    I've been a member since Donuts and I've made every cocktail, usually with some form of substitution. Except for the Fugees drink. Black Walnut Liqueur is the perfect combination of difficult to find, difficult to substitute, and difficult to make on my own.

    I’ve never understood the people who don’t make the cocktails. They’re way more useful than the art print in my opinion.

    Well let me tell you it’s not because I don’t like alcohol, or cocktails, or cocktails while listening to good music.

    You can use Campari or Aperol or salors aperitif cynar. It will alter the color but taste similar. I used salors.

    Dropping the August recipe in hurrrrr. It was created by Mitski, herself :)

    It's super simple AND delish.

    Just a quick note. You can substitute Aquafaba for the egg white. It’s the water packed in chick peas. I have tried it and it works. Less mess IMO.

    I haven't tried it with the plum wine yet, due to The Spins venue not having the ingredients. Still had a solid variation of it (pictured above). I am determined to try the exact cocktail before the month is over. How did everyone like the cocktail (to those who where able to have the plum wine)?

    I made several cocktails over the weekend, requiring egg white. I used aquafaba in all cases and I am not convinced of its merits. This will be my new go to. I get farm fresh eggs from my farm, and I think super fresh egg whites don't foam up as well. I made a few sake based cocktails using aquafaba and they were golden!

    I liked it quite a bit, though I didn't find the specified Umeshu plum wine that would be sweeter and about 30% ABV. Instead I used Gekkeikan which is only 13% ABV, and that is why it tasted a bit watered down with the soda water. But I still enjoyed it! The rosemary was a nice aromatic addition and it didn't overpower the drink. If/when I make this again with the ingredients that I have, I will omit the soda. If I manage to find Umeshu, then the soda will probably be necessary.
    Cheers!
