What are you drinking right now? - Page 746

^ Sounds like it might have mixing potential?

Just Got back from 3 nights of excellent food and drink in San Francisco. Hit up several of the City's cocktail bars (Comstock, Tradition, Wilson&Wilson, Romolo) and coupla' dives (the Saloon, Dave's and Bow Bow). Had some very good classics and variations thereof (aviation, veux carre, hemingway, amaro sour, south side, sazerac, french 75, pimms cup and old fashioned). However, one of my favorite ryes is Templeton. Found a place not far from Union Square where it was $7 for a shot AND a bottle of murika's finest shite beer, Miller High Life. Kept me grounded while my wife shopped and after I risked life and limb at Uniqlo for a shit-ton of supima tees, socks and slim chinos. Nice break from the kids. Hella' fun overall.

I love sour, but this seemed a little bitter to me.  Was it the Rose's?  This was my first taste of Rose's.

Cheers,

Unsure. Some people just don't like Rose's and find it too overbearing. We like this ratio and use it a lot in the Summer.

I really enjoyed Wilson & Wilson when I was there.

Ditto.

Honestly, Tradition was really the only let down. Drinks were still damn good, but tender was kind of "out of his fuckin' element." Shit-ton of barrel aged hooch... But no one could answer how aged, etc...

Sour mix has eggs? I've always just done lemon (or lime) and simple syrup.


No, but sours themselves quite often do. I use both lemon and lime juice, simple, and some zest in my sour mix, generally. But I don't bottle it, I make it to order.

Warre's Otima 10
post #11184 of 14432

Margarita (not frozen)

 

2 Tequila

1 1/2 Triple Sec

1 1/2 fresh lime juice

1/2 simple

 

shaken with some ice and served with a salty rim.

 

I wish I could tolerate alcohol better, I would have another.............

 

It was perfect.

 

Cheers.

The rest of the Otima 10 and some of Warre's 1996 Cavadinha.

Dalmore Cigar Malt. I wasn't crazy about this when I first tried it, but a teaspoon of room temperature water really made a huge difference. Not sure I will buy it again though. At double the price of Gran Reserva, I just think the GR is a better value..

My first can of San Pellegrino Aranciata.
I have to make a side to side comparison of Aranciata with Orangina out of a glas bottle (the PET ones just have too much carbonation to it) but at the moment I think the Aranciata is a tad less sweet and a bit more bitter.
I like both aspects of it.
What is your favorite?
post #11188 of 14432
I think I prefer Orangina a little (but wouldn't be devestated if I could only get SP Aranciata). But then again, Orangina -- like pretty much every widely distributed brand -- differs a lot in each country. For example, German Coke tastes better than Dutch Coke (IMO). Some Oranginas I've had tasted bland, others were great. FWIW, I believe that there's about the same amount of sugar in them. But yeah, a side-by-side would be good, maybe even include Fanta.

Anyway, I'm drinking more of the '96 Warre's Cavadinha.

Fat Tire by New Belgium.  I live in Alabama and unfortunately it isn't sold here.  Luckily, while I was in Tennessee this past weekend I grabbed a few 6 packs to bring back and enjoy.

That's hilarious about the Orangina. I love that stuff.
