Cold beer in cold weather?! :eeek: YOu need that warm, hard cider.
What can I say James, we Canadians are CRAZY! I had ice cream the other day.....
No, no warm cider for me. Cold hard cider, made in the town I'm from. It's the BEST!
Ice cream!? It is so cold there that you don't need to store that in the fridge. Outside the house will do.
Cold cider in 20 degree weather?! Brrrrrr.
True, I can keep all my perishable food items in the snow. ;0 Actually, you just close the door to my 'sun room' in the winter and you have an instant cold room. Brrr.
Now I want ice cream! Hmmm, cider flavoured would be refreshing!
Cider flavored ice cream?! Well, what the heck---we have garlic flavored ice cream around here.
It could be good, more like a sorbet or something. I've had non-alcoholic cider slushies, which were amazing!
- 7 C°
30cm new snow
and couple of bottles ice cold Früh Kölsch, the best beer on the planet.
Hmmmm.... Garlic Cider sorbet.:eeek:
The other night, I made Tom Collinses for the brother-in-law and his wife, the first they'd ever had; big hit. Last night, Old Fashioneds for the menfolk, the ladies demurred.
I had a very nice Sazerac sorbet at Tales of the Cocktail one year.
That sounds good. Send me a half gallon and I'll let you know what I think.
I wish I could get a half gallon for here.
Here's one I had at the same seminar:
THE CURARI COCKTAIL
(by Ted “Dr. Cocktail” Haigh)
2 ounces rye whiskey
3/4 ounce ruby port
3/4 ounce Amaro Cora
2 dashes Regans’ Orange Bitters No. 6
Combine in a mixing glass with ice,
stir for 30 seconds and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a proper cherry on a cocktail pick.
I'm glad I stocked up on Amaro Cora.
A few wee drams of Red Breast over boulders
A dram of Dalwhinnie with my cigar.
I drank coffee. If I had any left, I would have been drinking Pastis or Czech Absinthe. I do have a wonderful restored 1930's percolator though
Tonight, actually, whiskey sours for starters, a martini for myself; bro in law is asking for a Tom Collins, so after this post I'll make one for him.
hot posset of egg nog, dark rum, shredded bread, nutmeg and cinnamon.
An old standby; Blanton's/rocks
Spicy Martinis all around accompanied by decent cigars.
1995 vintage Quinta Roeda port.
