eh. because I can.
I Just Bought a... (Wine, Spirit, or Beer) - Page 125
When I bought Mountain Gay Eclipse Silver, .7l was 18€. 1l was 20€. D'oh.
Let me know what you think of Fever Tree's. But please don't crush the mint in your Mojito.
So, I had some La Trappe Isid'or (very nice), Hercule Stout (nice) and Rodenbach Grand Cru (very interesting) today.
Bednight drink I'm sipping now is a Bourbon Renewal. 2oz Maker's Mark, 1oz lemon juice, .5 oz Crème de Cassis, .5 oz simply syrup, 1 dash Angostura bitters. Good one!
Oops, just realized that this is "the wrong" thread. Whatever. I found some Villa Antinori rosso '08 at the local supermarket for 12.99€ which is a pretty good price. In Germany, it's mostly 15€. So I had to buy it, of course, because you guys are in favor of the winery.
Man, you are not kidding! I touched up the D&S with .5 oz simple syrup and a few ounces of soda. Not only intensely gingery but that pepper strong ginger gives you too.
Remember: if it's not Scottish, IT'S CRAP!
Sound pretty good.
This put me a little off, but whatever.
Nice (large) haul, Piob, but two points of interest: The regular Laird's actually has only 51% apple spirit, the rest is grain. The best applejack to get from Laird's is the 'Bottled in Bond' with a black label with red writing. They also make aged expressions. The BiB is like $20. Before I was able to find that, I bought Calvados for my applejack cocktails, one of the lower-priced Busnels for like $35. Made a damned fine Widow's Kiss. Also, I don't think that the Hiram Walker Sloe gin has any sloeberrys in it -- there are only two that I know of that do: Plymouth's and one from The Bitter Truth.
You really have to try the Citadelle and tell me what you think.
