Ah, but tonight isn't a "school night".........
Fourth Regiment with Redemption Rye and a brand new bottle of Carpano. Mmmmm...
Been on a wine kick lately. Lots of Vintjs Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Last night, and tonight, for that matter.
Hot buttered rum. It's finally getting chilly enough.
while at a bar for a party w/ coworkers, i tried McSorleys Irish Black Lager.
not so great. better than average schwartzbier, but way too carbonated.
I failed to consume any alcool on the weekend. I really no longer deserve to be included in this thread! *hangs head in shame*
Did you drive anyone else to the bottle? That kind-of counts ...
You know, now that you mention it Don.....;0
Hirsch Selection Small Batch Reserve
I was visiting the SC coast last week and picked up a bottle of Hirsch Selection Small Batch Reserve at a mom and pop shop. Save your money. To my way of thinking there are much better choices for $36+ per jar. To wit, Knob Creek at dollars less. I had higher hopes given it's 47% ABV. At 94 octane you'd expect a bit more taste. I'm guessing this bottling is a bit green as I could not find the age on the label. Mostly I find when bourbon is aged 6 years or more the bottler does not conceal that news. Live and learn.
Hmm, never tried "alcool".......are you sure you didn't have a drink!
I'll get my coat........
Actually, now that I'm sobering up...I do recall having some cider on Saturday evening. I'd quite forgotten....heh.
We had a small scotch tasting/ JB Rare, then Glenmorangie 10 YO. Highland 15 YO and some Abalor 18 yo.
I am not a big Scotch drinker but I liked the Glenmorangie best.
You did fairly well in distinguishing the good one there.
I've been drinking a lot of dirty martini's lately. I think I've been inspired by watching Sabrina over the weekend.
When I go out now I have to specify that I want a "gin Martini" (or I will get a Vodka one by default) which hits me as being so wrong. But then I've also had to tell bartenders how to make a Martini (as in they had no idea where to start).
Not last night, but the last drink I had was a Hendrick's martini.
still big on the arak as an aperitif.
then a Guinness w/ a grilled strip steak and baked potato w/ rock salt and vinegar.
I've never tried Hendricks as a Martini, only on the rocks or with a slight splash of tonic...what's the ratio to vermouth you use?
Now I'm envious and hungry! ;0
