Sweetened with honey, lengthened with water about 1.5-2 times the volume of the calvados. Cinnamon stick, star anise, cloves, cardamom (edit: and some ginger).

ok yeah I know it's not alcohol but anyway. Lately I've been soaking freshly grated ginger with lemon slices and some honey in hot water and drinking that. Pretty simple but tasty and I think healthy. That being said, I see an idea for a flavored syrup forming around citrus peals, ginger, spices, etc...

Master...,

 

Do you ingest the ginger solids or just the liquid?  It sounds like a great cold or flu symptom fighter.

 

Cheers,

Indeed, it's great for digestion. I don't personally eat the ginger (or lemon) since I find it too strong but I do mash it up a lot with the hot water to get the most out of it before taking it out (I squeeze it then too).

But, I know that with some recipes like Indian ones, you can put the ginger in the blender to make a base for sauce and I'm sure that is even better for you.

^Sounds like good ol' ginger tea to me. I tend to grind it up too and then strain it. More intense. When I'm lazy, I just use ginger slices (maybe "bashed" slighty).

Gonna have a hot toddy now. 3 oz Monkey Shoulder, 1-2 tsp cider vinegar, 2 tsp honey, half a cinnamon stick, 1 star anise, 3 cloves, a few slices of ginger and a few "grains" of cardamom (the stuff inside the pods). Heated up, strained, diluted with 4.5-6 oz boiling water and kept warm in a "baine-marie".

Not bad, but cream soda isn't really a flavor I love for beer. Goes well with this, though:

Meh. Faux intellectualist comment. I did not say that Black is shit. Do you understand that taste is subjective and/or what the word "most" means?

Methinks you've lost count of your drams.

… and FFS, I was half joking … perhaps in fact you should have another, you sound like you need it.

Dude, you said "Because most JW tastes like shit?" And yes, I know what "most" means -- generally, it means the majority or the large majority of something. Of the standard JW blends that are presently available, Black is the second up from the bottom, and since you are talking about quality and taste, any reasonable interpretation of the word "most JW" in your statement would include the second-cheapest JW blend. Or, at the very least, my interpretation is not an unreasonable one.

 

Yes, I do know that taste is subjective, but there are reasonable limits on the subjectivity. To simply say that you like Scotch sets some of those limits, and, within that context to say that "most JW tastes like shit" is ridiculous. It was exactly the sort of hipster-esque comment that makes you sound like you do not know what you are talking about. So I was just helping you out there.

Yes, thanks for the catch. Whistle not Whistling.
It's good, but I tend to prefer something a bit more distinctive. But very nice.

Ok, my run is done, grass mowed and sidewalk edged, puppy fed and put in cage for a nap. Time for some relaxation.

I really do not like the whistle pig brand. The price to quality ratio is so fucking out of whack. I also really don't like the intentional misleading of consumers on production. Templeton is pretty bad about this stuff.

Interesting. I'm not really familiar with the marketing come-on. It's a bottle my greenfrog bought, on her brother-in-law's recommendation, to have around when I come over.

Whistle Pig has won multiple awards and billed itself as small time, artisan, and local. Turns out they bought bulk distillate from an Alberta maker so it's not even American. I've heard they are either starting to distill their own or plan to but the juice with all the buzz is made by dirty furriners.

Hurr.

Do they have hipster beards like the Mast Bros. chocolate guys?
