What are you drinking right now? - Page 490

Huh, surprised he didn't know the aviation. From what I can tell, it's a pretty hot drink these days among cocktail enthusiasts (of course, who knows how many of those show up on a given night?). Oh, and I tried to look up the other one, it doesn't seem to exist online. I suspect you gave him an excuse to be creative, and he took it. Any idea what was in it?

Was going to drink something nicer but decided to finish off one of my cheapo bottles. So I've had ~3 old fashioneds with Michter's Rye, Peychauds and Simple Syrup; had that with duck confit with broco/cauli for dinner.

"you're a double shot of bourbon on the rocks with just a splash of ginger [ale]"

-Coffee & Cigarettes, American Aquarium

bourbon is Knob Creek. ginger ale is Reed's. a decent drink.

I'm in Japan cpt. Perhaps its a hot drink where you are but not here. I asked for it because its mentioned in this thread often. I don't recall what was in the second cocktail except I asked for a cocktail that uses eggs and that was what I got. Yes, I asked for him to be creative. Maybe its called Pink Pearl not Pink Pearl Flip.

Searching the net, absolutdrinks.com lists the ingredients as
12 Parts Grapefruit Juice
1 Part Egg Yolk
1 Splash Grenadine
1 Splash Lemon Juice

^You seem to be lacking liquor... I did find it under pink pearl, and it's apparently supposed to be a rum drink, not a vodka one. Absolut is just trying to claim it, I guess. Grapefruit, lemon, grenadine, light rum, egg white. Sounds pretty good. And you're right about the Japan thing. I did not notice that at all when I first read your post.

I used to be strictly limes... or nothing. But I've been in Hong Kong a few months where limes are scarce and absurdly expensive at times. My girlfriend took to buying lemons as she prefers them and I may have come around. Lemons in the G&T are pretty good... but given a choice I think I still prefer limes. I usually make it a bit on the strong side and then let it "marinate" for a few minutes to let the ice mellow it a touch. MMmmmmm... refreshing!

Black Grouse. Almost finished the bottle too - which is a bit scary.

Braunstein Organic Christmas Ale. Taste was allright, but damn it was good for my tooh ace...

Currently drinking some Fuller's ESB. Some decent stuff there.

Later in the day I'll have some G&T's (Hendricks or Bombay, with a garnish of either lime or cucumber), and after reading a few posts above I guess I'll have to check out Fever Tree, as the tonic I've always used is Schweppes. Wouldn't hurt to try out new things every now and then.

Just had a nice Orval, and poured myself a bit of Crag 12. I've finished all of my assignments for the semester and have over a week until my first exam, and based on the past few weeks workload, I've earned a little relaxation Looking forward to snagging myself a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask soon, now that I've polished off my Balvenie Doublewood. I like to keep two scotches on hand, just because.

E&J and coke. Had the E&J left over after making some eggnog this wknd.

^Out of curiosity, which version? The crappy stuff they make is horrible, their high end stuff isn't bad at all and warrants drinking straight. And I'm having a gin sling with dinner. Or rather, I've started the gin sling and will be adding dinner soon.

Glass of Laphroaig 18 year and a bottle of Rogue's Yellow Snow IPA a friend brought in

I don't know if it has a name, but it's basically a perfect Manhattan with orange bitters and a dash of fresh orange juice.
