Thanks for sharing...I'm going to try these this weekend.
You are welcome. Let me know what you think of them. Again, you can play with the proportions to get it right for your taste.
An Old Fashioned, made with a "dirty" brown rum.
A kinda spiked Dry Martini, with Old Raj Gin and a Vermouth which name I can't seem to remember.
To many beers...
Ended up on the couch, fiesting on delivered pizza and watching re-runs of The Wire.
The Missus is currently in the Canary Islands, and a mans gotta do etc...
I gave up alcohol for lent.
Braver than I am.
Good luck Tom, I'm a weasel about lent and New Year's Resolutions. In 2007, I gave up McDonald's. I HATE McDonald's burgers etc. I finally went back to McD's in August 2009 because somebody from work wanted to go.
On a side note, the yuppie bars (or whatever you call a 20 year old's meat market these days) in Wichita are now serving Pabst. Takes me back to High School.
I hang out at the young bars and they've always got tall boys of Pabst. It's their one saving grace.
A couple of boring old Bud Light. But I had them with my Dad, that is all that counts.
A wee dram of Dalmore.
Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc 2010
I had an Irish Car Bomb and two Jack and diets on Friday night at a local pub.
Tanqueray Martini up with an olive. Hadn't had one in ages. Fantastic.
A Dalmore old fashioned.
Cigar Malt? Is it back in the US yet?
I had a glass of Nolet's Reserve Gin
I think it is but at about $200 a bottle they can keep it. I used the regular Dalmore for the Old Fashioned.
Can I get Nolet's here? I understand that The Botanist is a decent Islay Dry Gin. Have you tried this?
3 Wooly Sheep Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Both Nolet's Gins are made for the US market, the Silver is about $50 a bottle, Nolet's Reserve is around $700.
The Botanist is OK but not worth a hefty price tag.
