What are you drinking right now? - Page 1027

post #15391 of 16180
Now I want to drink some rum. But I'm actually having a bit of Cointreau and Martell. Maybe it's a bootleg French Connection.

I really dislike rhum agricole. It's kinda gross by itself and overpowering in a cocktail if you don't watch it

Had some of that amara with lemon juice, lemon peel, and sparkling water. Was way too good. Drank so much I got really buzzed and now have a mini hangover.

Not now (it's noon), but last night:

 

A "Negronino," so basically a negroni with some Amaro Nonino subbed for some of the Campari. Very, very tasty. So pleased AN is available in Korea now.

Agricole daiquiris are really really great. I normally slam a daquiri in 5 minutes. Those make me sip a little more.

Perfect late spring drink, just as the weather is starting to get warm. I love the funk and the vegetal taste in the spring.


I almost always kill a bottle in late April/May and then forget to get more until the next year.

If I'm going to drink wine with sushi I find a nice Torrontes to pair up perfectly.

And parts of Asia generally. I noticed the whiskey culture is pretty strong in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau … and to a lesser extent Mainland China and Thailand (of the places I've been). In fact, I didn't really start drinking scotch consistently until I lived over there for a bit. A bottle of Macallan 18 (or something else appropriately conspicuous) on the table is kind of a thing.

Hmmm. I've never had this, may give it a try. I'd say about 90% of the wine I drink is red … and with sushi probably a pinot or shiraz of some sort, but I do like a crisp, oak-y chardonnay.

Ever consider NZ Semillon Sauvignon Blanc goes down very well with seafood. Cheap as well as they have had abundant harvests for the past few vintages.

Tonight presently airing Farr Rising Geelong Pinot Noir 2011 and a Tasmanian Bay of Fires Pinot Noir 2013 for a birthday dinner with Archie Rose Negroni's to begin with.

With Torrontes if the nose isn't very alive with floral and a peach or apricot nose it might be too old or not a good one. It's definitely a "drink young" wine and should not be bitter. A dying bottle or inferior bottle will lack the nose and often have a bitter component.

As far as NZ Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend that's basically a standard white Bordeaux, so if you wanted to go that route, there is quite a bit to pick from. I can't remember the producer of the last white Bordeaux style blend I had from NZ but it was basically that Kermit Lynch Bordeaux import I like plus some grapefruit.
