    Bought some fixings today. Orange blossom and rose water, Peychaud bitters, Luxardo maraschino and Campari. I also got another bottle of Junipero and one of Hendricks. Even last year, I would not have thought I'd have several different gins at once. I'm trying very hard to find creme de Violet, as I want to make an Aviator. I do have the fixings for a Corpsereviver though, and shall make one tonight.
    Have no time to post anything but a [​IMG] for your haul. Right in my comfort zone.

    Before I left Seattle (when I could still buy wine at the grocery store) I was attempting to get into some summer wines, tried a few sauvingon blancs (cause I had an "aha" moment witha bottle one evening this summer). Tennessee's laws suck.

    Heard Ruination was good and grabbed a single last week. Where in PA are you located? I live in Philly but work in Lancaster. Any good spots for singles or sixers near you?

    I'm in Gettysburg. Work takes me to Hagerstown, MD quite often. The beer selection is MUCH better there. The only places up here to get decent beer are several case distributors along route 30.

    I made a run to the local store to augment our liquor cabinet:

    Plymouth Gin
    Luxardo liquor (maraschino cherry)
    Pims
    $15 brandy for cocktail recipes

    We made The Last Word:

    Plymouth Gin
    Luxardo
    green Chartreuse
    lime juice

    Shaken vigorously over ice, served in a chilled martini glass, garnished with a lemon peel disk

    Nice Dark! I'm a big fan of the mixed bottles like that, it's nice to taste different beers w/o buying 6 of each.

    Also look out for the Itaca Beer Co. mixed box.

    I'm a fan of mixed packs. I buy whatever is put out by my favorite breweries, especially the smaller ones. Sam Adams' season mixed packs are often in my rotation, too.
