    Wychcraft Blonde beer from Prime Minister Cameron's local brewery, Wychwood. Quite hoppy on the nose but very subtle and dry apart from that - never tasted anything quite like it. It's definitely not the usual fruity, summer ale style I was expecting

    An 08 Australian Cab/Merlot. Rather nice actually, and recovering from a night of prosecco and then laphroaig.

    Vodka Martini. Shaken, not stirred.
    Honestly, I think shaking ruins the drink. There is something incredible about the viscous, spiritous clarity of a stirred, all-spirits drink. ~H EDIT: Last Word here. 1.5:1.5:1.5:1.5

    I was mostly drinking it because I didnt have any gin or roses, wanted a gimlet, but thought a vokda martini would do in a pinch. And I like using my shaker [​IMG]

    Last night, Mexican Fanta (sugar vs. cs) from Sam's Club (national free weekend/no 10% surcharge).

    Stagg a little later while watching The Ghost Writer.

    There's a great episode on gin martinis on the Thirsty Traveler which shows the difference between shaken and stirred.

    I'm having a white russian - although I don't want to have a coronary so I did 2% milk which I'm sure makes the drink easier to go down and less of a sipping one.

    Rogue Brewery's Pub in SF yesterday... got the chipotle ale. It's like drinking a big glass of mild chipotle, which is good if I was eating Mexican food, not so good if all I wanted was something to drink. [​IMG]

    those two drinks remind me of your Burger Bar experience. Not as terrible..... but not far behind.

    I like to mix it up... good meals/drinks and really bad ones; it keeps me angry.

    Haha, I told you it was odd, but worth a try. I didn't say it was good tough!

    That Shark Week on the other hand...ugh [​IMG] [​IMG]
