1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Someone recommend me a moderately sized wine cooler/cabinet thing. Ideally something that can store champagne or other types of bottles too? This won't be going under any counters. Would prefer if it didn't sound like a jet engine and give off more heat than a coal plant.

    PS '02 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill >>>> just about any other champagne I've had in that price range.

    Been cooking through the Ottolenghi book Nopi (see the SW&D Food thread for food pics) but there's also a bunch of cocktails. The lady and I made some rooibos syrup for a roibos old fashioned, and now we have a bottle of frenet branca to use. I've been making Torontos, because a food poisoning association with vermouth makes me unable to drink Manhattans, which would be otherwise be something I really liked.

    Sounds dope.

    I made some basil simple syrup this weekend that I'll be turning into basil sour mix tonight before trying it out. I think this thread told me to do that like 3 years ago, so thanks guys

    There is such a broad range of sweet vermouth available today that they are similar only in name, and I am sure that you could get away from the taste memory with a vermouth on the end of the range. I will assume that the association is probably with Martini & Rossi, so, I'd consider Dolin Rouge for a fruity, winey, and very light vermouth -- this is a French sweet, and totally different from the M&R Turin style. The other option is Punt E Mes, which is a cross between a vermouth and an amaro. Since you drink Fernet that might work. You could also add a barspoon of Fernet to your Manhattans.

    Lastly, Lillet Rouge makes a very decent Manhattan on its own -- very wine-y.

    All that is true. Find a vermouth you can like!
