What are you drinking right now? - Page 929

post #13921 of 14021
and up drinks are usually the booziest
post #13922 of 14021
My uncle has a small 3 page article about him in tasting panel. It's on my FB for those that I'm friends with to check out.

You're all right. I meant tall, not up.
post #13924 of 14021
i think tall (and long) also encompasses drinks with still water but not too sure on that
post #13925 of 14021
A tall glass is a signal to the drinker that it will most likely be a sour, I can't think of a cocktail that doesn't go into a tall glass that isn't a sour. Which is usually lighter and more refreshing than an up or aromatic cocktail.

To the point about carbonating your drink, why not carbonate it if it is a riff on a dark and stormy?

Rickeys aren't a sour (they don't have sweeteners in them although I've seen bars serving like gin fizzes and calling it a Rickey)

Highballs are also tall but not necessarily a sour. Like whiskey highballs or americanos

I was also going to say slings but those are meant to be a shorter drink

None of those are cocktails....

Well if we're going by the old definition sours aren't cocktails either.

A couple reasons I guess. First, a Sodastream doesn't let you carbonate flavoured liquids. Secondly, I suppose I wanted something more akin to an old fashioned. The ginger liqueur takes the place of the sugar and bitters, rum replaces bourbon. Really, as I mentioned in my first post, I was out for a run which I hate doing, and I started dreaming about cocktails to take my mind off how much I hate running and this was what popped into my head. No grandiose intentions by any stretch, just trying something new.

Can't you use a soda siphon to carbonate anything? Might be cheaper. I'm tempted to carbonate at home but I don't drink it that often

I'm going by the relatively accepted modern usage. A highball isn't a cocktail.
post #13932 of 14021
Which ones the relatively modern definition? Liquor, sugar, water, bitters ("commonly called a bitter sling")?

Cocktail today virtually means a mixed drink with alcohol
post #13933 of 14021
The modern definition of a martini is anything that's shaken and poured into a cocktail, er, Martini glass.

I just moved to St Augustine, Fl so that my daughter can attend to Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. The local winery has this red and here are my neophyte notes on it:

This is the first red wine I've tasted that is sweet enough for me to enjoy without just tasting like alcoholic grape juice. Definitely NOT dry. Many reviews complain that it tastes like grape jungle juice but from the responses I've read, it's because these people aren't familiar with this kind of wine. Apparently it is a characteristic of the Muscadine (?) grape to be a sweeter varietal. I definitely like it though I'm not sure how that would translate to you wine afficianados. I will definitely be drinking more, and the local walmart has it for around $10/bottle.

The troll in this is very awesome. I'm not sure where to begin but I think the best is you're sending that from an iPhone 6.
