30mls Blanco Tequila
15mls triple sec
30mls freshly squeezed lemon juice
30mls Peanut Butter and Jelly Soda
Good dash of @angostura_au Bitters.

This is a non-cocktail related post but a special treat for any fan of The Simpsons.
My wife's office is doing an auction on EBay to help raise money to support Optometry Giving Sight. They are auctioning off some cool Simpsons items.
One of the items is a poster of The Treehouse of Horror. The entire illustration staff signed this poster. Not only did they sign it but they also added some special doodles to the poster. This is a one of a kind poster only given for this auction. Check out the photos for more details. Swipe left.
This is the Item #112612044010
The other item is a toy collection of special Simpsons items. I don't have a picture of it but you can see it online.
This is the Item #112612060242
The auction ends on Oct 30th for both items

#BarFaithHomeBarBasics : Tools 102. Ok, here's a bonus post for the starter series I posted a couple weeks ago. If you missed that, check #BarFaithHomeBarBasics for a list of recommended products to start out your homebar with for maximum versatility with minimum investment. Here are some additional tools that are great to have for your basic home bar. These are not *critical* and you can still make awesome cocktails without it, but these are all indispensable in my collection. For the absolute essentials, see #BarFaithTools101 first.
• Citrus press // Strongly recommend a stainless steel hand press
• Muddler // wooden flat-ended ones are best
• Small mesh strainer // Used to 'double-strain' a drink to remove all ice shards and any large particles from added ingredients for maximum smoothness and clarity. I use an OXO one
• Cocktail glassware // Cocktail coupes, Old Fashioned glasses, Highball glasses - see #BarFaithGlassware for some favs
• Ice molds // Square and round molds will take your cocktail creations up a notch - those half moon fridge cubes are no fun 😅
• Cocktail picks // Recommend stainless steel reusable ones for adding garnishes to your creations
• Martin's Index app // huge collection of classic archived recipes
• Death and Co book // technique, ingredients, and recipes to create professional cocktails at home

My first time to light a star anise and it was so lit! 🤗
I got a new barrel aged Gin from @fourpillarsgin. Four Pillars rested the gin in French oak and created a blend using Solera system which is to blend from different barrels of varying ages. I have seen similar techniques for balsamic vinegar in Modena Italy. Four Pillars uses their famous Rare Dry Gin, slightly higher proof then adjusts each botanical subtly. Each release is different the one I bought is Solera no 5 released last year. No 6th is already a sold out. .
When I first sipped it, it caught me by surprise because it is so different from the classic crisp and sharp Gin that I am used to. It is full of aroma on the nose, oaky, hint of ginger, anise, cassia followed by citrus and juniper. It is well balanced.
My first experiment turned out to be old fashioned. I decided to bring out features that are more of whisky and the fall season since I am making old fashioned. .
Four Pillars Fashioned
Pernod Absinthe to do a quick glass rinse
2 oz Four Pillars barrel aged Gin @fourpillarsgin
1 tsp cinnamon syrup
Generous dashes of smoke and oak bitters from @bettersbitters
Dashes of grapefruit bitters from @betterbitters
1 star anise
Glassware: limited edition as homage to Charles Schumann. The sexiest bartender alive!
Use the Absinthe to do a quick rinse. Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass not for long, since the gin is lower ABV than a typical whisky. Pour over to the glass with a large clear ice cube. Express grapefruit oil and garnish with the peel. Light the star anise to release additional aroma. The star anise is soaked in warm Absinthe.
Photography tip: you need to set up everything before lighting the anise. Make sure the ice cube is leveled when placing the anise. Choose the dark background so you can see the flame. I waited til sundown then used my 50mm 1.4 in very low light. I also used continuous mode in my camera so it captures more frames that I get to choose the best.
It turns out to be a drink I enjoyed, you can tell it's an old fashioned but with juniper and citrus finish. That is how I wanted it to be.
