    I love the cocktail glass. Where can I find it?

    Ditto what HDTV says in previous comment. I've had an open bottle in the refrigerator I need to finish. It's the Pitaud brand, which seems to be well-regarded.

    The Cappa looks so delicious & elegant. I cant wait to make it!

    I was looking for a way to use all of the Pineau des Charentes that I had laying around. I'm sure it's a wonderful drink but I don't have a Franky Marshall bartender around.
