What are you drinking right now? - Page 1023

post #15331 of 16179


Autumn Leaves. Rye, sweet vermouth, Calvados, spoonful of Strega. Kind of like a Vieux Carré with apple brandy instead of brandy and Strega instead of Benedictine. Really liked the garnish they used. Didn't like that they made everybody buy a drink. Never had one before. Boozy, oaky, muddled autumn flavors. Wish I had a beard and a fireplace and fall leaves

Had some "sugared" ginger juice left but no lemons so I improvised something with pomegrante juice (100%, unfiltered).

3 cl Smith & Cross
8-9 cl Angostura white rum
3 cl "sugared" ginger juice
3 cl pomegranate juice
5 cl lime juice
1 cl Maraschino
a dash or three of Dr. Adam Elmegirab's Aphrodite Bitters

Really good. Only downside is the color--the unfiltered pomegrante jucie has a muddy brown/red color.

That's one of the few liquors/liqueurs that supposedly improves in bottle. I have an unopened bottle that's about 30 years old, one of these days I need to buy a new bottle and test them side by side.

Three leisurely pints of Young Henry's Old Masters Scottish Ale inspired by the current exhibition at the AGNSW. From their website "The resulting brew has a smooth, balanced sweet maltiness with a touch of oak while the earthy, spicy hops play second fiddle. In the glass its a the warm red colour." Find this kind of craft beer immensely enjoyable but its like sitting down to a three course meal and pub burgers Mrs GF and I had hit the spot.

Now have to ensure that I get up and go to the gym in the morning.
