Glenfiddich 15 year old....neat.
I just about had to go behind the bar and make my Old Fashioned myself too. She had to check out the book. :eusa_doh:
Understated wit is so delicious, Fletch. And so hard to come by these days...
My hat's off to you.
Well last night I was at Stone Brewery and had a grand ol' time!
Started with an Oaked Bastard and moved on to a Ruination IPA then took the tour and had some pale. Went home with a growler of Smokey Porter with Vanilla Bean...
Having some of that tonight....
A Jean Harlow
Mmmmm ...Had a thoroughly delightful evening sipping a few Jean Harlow's ....
2 oz sweet vermouth
The Blonde Bombshell was supposedly fond of this martini created in her honour. Best served chilled, with a lemon peel garnish.
Blanton's on the rocks.
A nice bottle of Pol Roger champagne and a brandy and soda.
I'm going to try that as I have a huge bottle of white rum that I bought for some strange reason and it's almost full.
I had a Beefeater Martini to celebrate Tony Bennett's birthday.
The liquor store (those of us in Ontario understand why I say "THE liquor store) is now stocking Deucher's India Pale Ale from Caledonian Brewery in Edinburgh. A very tasty IPA, quite hoppy, but not so bitter as to be avoided as a session ale. Enjoyed two yesterday after a hard weekend's moving.
Along with it's cousin, 80/- (80 Shilling), two of the best beers I've ever had.
Miller Light draft.
I recently took a bottle of bitters to a bar I enjoy frequenting just to get a manhattan! And usually they don't know how to make a "Perfect" manhattan - it is one of lifes' discouragements, anyway the jar of bitters now resides at the end of the bar and usually only used by myself
A rather nice relaxing evening in with a Dubonnet and gin. :cheers1:
Red Breast Irish Whisky.....neat.
Excellent! Nice to see someone being proactive about the problem
I had a G&T with New Amsterdam gin. Hadn't had it before, it's a bit...alcoholic. That is, it smells of alcohol as much or more than of juniper. Fine for a G&T, not sure i'd brave it in something stiffer. Guess you do get what you pay for =).
Rittenhouse Rye with soda, soaking the toes in the pool by moonlight.
Tonight, a small glass of The King's Ginger Liqueur. Very refreshing!
I'd have to take half my bar there to make that place have a decent menu. :eusa_doh: I'll stay home and peruse my own bar if that needs to be the case---its cheaper and less agravating.
No kidding, one time I printed out the instructions, and ingredients, to make a Sazerac for a local bar.
How hard can it be to buy a bottle of Rye, Herbsaint, and Peychaud's bitters. :eusa_doh:
