    I respond to snark with snark. No big deal.

    I don't deny my first post was snarky (imagine, a fruit beer having a strong fruity taste), but I didn't realize that calling someone a "fag" was considered snarky by anyone old enough to drink. I stand corrected, and the bar is lowered.

    Tried the Trappists for the 1st time this weekend - Chimay Grande Reserve & Westmalle Trippel. Not a beer drinker, but these went down with ease despite the higher abv.

    Wife almost threw away both since I had them for awhile (over a year?) & forgot about 'em. Glad they were saved.

    This is stupid and the thread shouldn't get derailed because of us. Your response was the equivalent of "like, duh" so I replied with a similarly weak response on purpose - case closed. I can do witty snark when the situation warrents it.

    To get back on topic I plan on having a glass or two of Duvel tonight which is currently my favorite beer, though I don't discriminate among the other Belgians.

    Try it at cellar temp or slightly cooler. Completely different beer.

    Ok, Huntsman is in the house...(and yes the color is correct)

    [​IMG]

    This is one of the few blue cocktails, the flight-era Aviation (so named for its grey-blue hue). The blue is created with the easy-to-find but hard-to-procure liqueur Creme de Violette -- a violet flavored spirit. The base spirit is gin, spiked with lemon juice, and sweetened with the unusual cherry-based Italian liqueur known as Maraschino (long a cocktail mainstay). It is an odd drink. No two ways about it. If interested there is an excellent article about the drink by a superb bartender by the name of Robert Heugel of Beaver's in Houston -- available at www.drinkdogma.com. My recipe is a variation of his.

    2 oz Beefeater's Gin (tried a few and liked this one even over Junipero)
    0.5 oz Lemon Juice, strained of pulp
    0.375oz Creme de Violette
    2 Teaspoons Luxardo Maraschino
    up to 0.5 teaspoon simple syrup to correct the lemon

    Shake briefly but vigorously and strain well into a cocktail glass.

    It is an unusual drink, the green of the gin balanced by the acid of the lemon and the floral notes of the violette, which is supplanted by the weirdness of the Maraschino. Worth trying for something amusing to have on a summer's night. Chicago, NYC and SanFran SFers should have no difficulty locating Violette.

    Ok, I'm sold then. Next trip to the cand...eh liquor store...

    I just followed your recipe and did not get that color (mine is pink from the maraschino [​IMG] ) thoughts?

    You should immediately delete both posts so there is no evidence. [​IMG]

    A mint julep, with a *gasp* wedge of lemon.
