What are you drinking right now? - Page 1037

post #15541 of 16179
Last night with pasta. Have bedrunken this one before and like it quite a bit. I'm also partial to M d'A because my grandfather and his brothers came from Abruzzo.

Tonight: very hipstery beer. Waiting for the food to cook before drinking; will update.



Have been on an excessive online wine buying kick when bored at work. This doesn't include an equal number in the garage, the bottles in the fridge, or the several bottlles I left at my greenfrog's place for when I'm over there. I think I'm going to have to invest in better wine storage and/or up my consumption rate.

Why not both? Both is the correct answer.

Almanac is great for those who like to their beer to taste like fruity carbonated vinegar (me)

Always thought this show was dumb but the host apparently knows jack shit about cocktails. Earlier he said tequila is made from mescal which has a hallucinogen called mescaline which is why it gives you a bad hangover

Yeah, I liked it. Not super carbonated, obviously, and you can't really taste the fancy citrus as opposed to good old lemons and oranges. But tasty and refreshing. (As you note, you do have to like sours, of course.)

Haaa, Taffer article has already been edited regarding the Mescal point.

Peninsula Bangkok? If so, one of my favorite bars. If not, looks like one of my favorite bars! Excellent cigar selection, to be sure. It's been too long, unfortunately.

I'm not usually into prepared syrups (generally make my own) but my wife got me a bottle of Caged Heat --- sugar, tamarind, cardamom, ghost pepper. Recommended. Made the drink listed on the label, a 2:1:1 sour with whiskey and lemon. Borderline too spicy, but just barely on the right side of the line.

that sounds pretty tasty, and fairly nerdy !

Saw a bottle of Handy for sale the other day for $800.00 so I am having a glass of my own bottle, for which I paid much less.

 

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

 

Also had a rare, highly enjoyable beer the other day -- Ichtegem's Grand Cru, a Flemish sour ale. It was complex, just bitter and sour enough, while retaining enough sweetness and earthiness for balance. Really enjoyed it.

Jefferson said that the "light, high flavored wines" like Montepulciano and Languedoc were his favorites.

Indeed. Gotta be who you are!

I got two Van Steenberge sampler packs the other day, and am opening up a Gulden Draak rigth now. I really like what Van Steenberge has to offer.

Can't recommend this enough. Best whiskey produced by JW, discontinued years ago. Only still available in US for 40-50USD. Contains no rubbing alcohol like all other JWs. This is 100% mix of single malts from the great distilleries. Talisker, Linkwood, Cragganmore, Caol Ila.

Quinta Ruban. Been a while since I've last drank it. Good stuff.

Also some Lagavulin. Good/great stuff too.
