Enjoying some Glenfarclas 21 while watching the Hornets game.

It's ok... as long as you at least took one little sip before the ice. The Stagg is a beast, and I usually end up adding rocks eventually myself.

Isn't it usually? I am thinking of the Savoy recipe -- share if you have a recipe with.

Well, I don't really like it without water, at least -- I usually just take it with a little water to open it up and knock down the '08's prodigious proof (what, isn't it 135 or something?) ~H

Actually you might be right. Just couple of my favorite bars used egg white. This is my recipe : 1 1/2 oz. Gin (I really like Beefeater with this cocktail) 3/4 oz. Cointreau 3/4 oz. lemon juice 1/2 oz. simple syrup 1 egg white

Beefeater?

Gin is one spirit where the price tag can be largely ignored, above a certain point. It's not aged, the differences are in flavor profile and strength. Beefeater is at a standard London 94 proof and has a very versatile profile. Certainly it has citrus notes that go well in a white lady, though I must admit not having really bothered with egg whites in drinks, so I don't know how that would affect gin choice.

I've never cared for it myself and always found it to be reflective of its low price. Blerg.

I don't like Beefeater martinis but for a mixer it does well. I don't mind Gordon's in a martini tho.

Right, gotcha -- my favorite bar uses egg white as well, but with a twist of some sort that I haven't figured out. Thanks for the recipe -- have to check but seems the same as mine.

Yeah, I rock Beefeater as my well gin, too. ~ H

Just saw a bottle of North Coast Brewing Co. Old Stock Ale 2009 Cellar Reserve at the store - anyone ever have it? Is it worth price?

How much was it? I have 2 bottles of this and will likely clean out the store for the rest of their supply.

I've had the 2010 Old Stock, not the CR, and it was very good. I imagine the CR to be better.

A little more than I pay but not by much.

I like Beafeater for my Negronis and Rickys as well.
