What are you drinking right now? - Page 863

^Does it really matter?

Gin and Tonic for me.
post #12932 of 13684
No, it doesn't matter at all, really. But what it tells me, or at least gives me an idea of, is the nature of their relationship.

Starting the night off with some weihenstephaner heffe. Boring, but so, so good.

I don't think it's boring. I do think it's very good, too.

Some Pisco del Carmen Reservado, Ardbeg Ten and a Vodka Lemon.

I think I've said in the past that it's boring. Boring may not be the right word. It is incredibly well made and probably the benchmark beer (for me at least) for the style. It just is....... hefe. It's a solid unfiltered wheat. A great unfiltered wheat. But... it's just a hefe.

It's just not very unique or special.

But I love heffes and it's probably my favorite beer.

Granted, I haven't been exposed to the plethora or beers out there so im still just a noob who doesn't know what he's talking about.

Ballast Point Sculpin cans... Can't stop. $11 a sixer at Trader Joes. Fun trivia fact, my buddy leant/leased the canning machine to them for this run of beers they've been canning since last march-ish. His own beers, Monkey Paw Brewery are hella' good as well.

I understand this.

I feel the same about Stone IPA. It is, IMO, *the* reference West-coast IPA. I don't buy or order it frequently because I am usually looking for something more interesting--but I cannot deny its perfection. It's a reference point for all competitors.

Tonight:

Aviation
Sazerac
Manhattan variation with a bit of Absinthe
Sidecar
post #12940 of 13684
manhattan with absinthe sounds interesting
post #12941 of 13684
It was good. Also incorporated Luxardo, which is one of my favorite additions to a Manhattan. Was a bit heavy on the absinthe IMO, but definitely enjoyable.

The sazerac was not as well made unfortunately. Still good, but not at the same level as their on-menu cocktails.

De La Louisianne? Even more awesome with Ransom Old Tom or a Genever.

They called it "improved whisky cocktail". Was rye, luxardo, absinthe, sweet vermouth, and angostura bitters. Quite good, but a bit heavy on the absinthe IMO.

That's a swell line-up regardless.
