Cocktail Recipe: The Brown Trout by Dave Newman

I sort of didn't care what was in a cocktail called the The Brown Trout, because the name is so awesome I would have probably ordered it regardless. 

But the ingredients are... intriguing anyway. Gin, scotch, Aperol, gentian liqueur, and elderflower - what could go wrong? Everything!

But the drink was very nice - give it a try sometime. 

I ordered this drink at Pint + Jigger during Hawaii Cocktail Week and it was my favorite drink that night.

You obviously have either a resilient psyche or very different associations with that term than I.

Like that ingredient list tho'. Can we just refer to it as a B.T. so I can get it to my mouth without thinking of toilet water?

Oh my, I did not have that association. UR GROSS.


Dude, what else has it ever meant? Am I just too much a child of NorCal 1970s?

Don't answer that.

Drinks without painful associations soon, okay? :)

I just liked the sound of a brown trout, like a green spider or a blue turtle. But you probably have weird associations with those too...

Now I wonder if everyone thinks a brown trout is what you think it is and I've been all "SOUNDS DELICIOUS" and now all the kids are laughing at me.


I am going to purge those old painful memories and go with your cheerful interpretation. (And no, no strange associations with green spiders or blue turtles.)

I think the kids are too young to have the association, thank goodness.

Perhaps you should delete my comment so another generation isn't scarred.
