I've tried one of those screw in juicers. Not great success.

So, I just had a Dark & Stormy with ginger beer/ale syrup that I just made yesterday. I grated 120g ginger and simmered it with 1 cup of sugar and 4 cups of water (for whatever reason). Was following some recipe on the interwebz. After ten minutes, the ginger taste was very nice. After one hour, it's a little flat in the opening but a very long lasting hot aftertaste. Overall I made syrup for about 400ml ginger beer from that batch. Definitely not worth it this way. Maybe I'll tweak it a little, just bring it to boil and then let it steep for some time. It was a little sweet in the Dark & Stormy because I had to use too much syrup. Plus, I bought Perrier but it seems to have too few fizz.

I must buy these.

Oh yeah, what's a good website to buy decent bar equipment (bar spoon, boston shaker, etc.) online?

Check out Kegworks to start off with. You can get specialty sites like umami mart, cocktail kingdom, etc.

I've tried kitchen towels in the past but it leaves behind these small fibers.

I've got this food-service brush designed for blenders/food processors (came with a food processor I bought secondhand so I don't know where it came from but it looks like a dexter-russell product, says 'Blender' on the side and has a product number). It is like a big fat older sibling to a bottle brush or a sized down toilet brush (but with twice the bristle density and a beefier handle)...it works great for cleaning that kind of stuff.

For the towel method, you just need towels that don't leave behind lint...I can't say what causes it, but the towels I like don't leave anything behind.

I will admit that I am perfectly willing to use the dishwasher as long as there is enough open space that I don't have to cram the glasses in there...and ever since reading an article from a dishwasher repairman saying how everyone uses way too much soap, I switched to using those cascade packs and keeping the rinse aid tank filled with white vinegar. Using less soap and having it add a tiny bit of vinegar to each wash seems to have alleviated most of those problems.

+1 cascade packs are the shit. Our stuff always comes out spotless.

Learn to make your own ice balls. Decent party trick. My friend is a master of the balls:

Can you link me some 5x5" ice cube trays? ;o
post #103 of 370
ice by the block + ice pick is all you need. You will figure out how to cleave it quickly.
post #104 of 370
Hm, using an ice pick with several rounds of alcohol in me... not sure I want to attempt.
