What Did You Drink Today (non-wine) #1?


#763

Drinking a fair amount of Wild Turkey 101. Really tasting good these days


#764

That Wild Turkey 80 ought to be outlawed.


(ChristinaM) #765

Four Roses small batch - the antidote to a long day!


(saregama) #766

I just had a fancified version of an Old Fashioned at a lovely Italian bar - ginger syrup for the sugar cube, but a few sips in all I wanted was my usual bourbon old fashioned… hmm, maybe I’ll just make one.


#767

Not a fan of the 80. Eddie Russell has been blending more older barrels in the 101 theses days. At around $31 for a handle its a good buy


#768

A few years ago the 101 label dropped the “8 years old” description.


#769

Several rounds of Columbian Aguardiente, and we were merry.


#770

Guaro!! Excelente!

not sure if you are located in the ‘polar vortex’ part of N. America that’s freezing its buns off this week, but if you are looking for a fun warming-up drink to make w/ that Aguardiente, try making a Canelazo; it’s a popular after-dinner hot drink in the mountainous regions of Colombia.

Sugar cane juice (can sometimes just find boxed concentrate from Latin store)
cinamon stick
lime juice
Aguardiente

Heat in a saucepan for 10 minutes or so (not to boiling)

serve in cup or mug. Rico!


#771

Not as cold as where you are, but it is still cold in the Paris region (on the verge of snowing and not).
Thanks for Canelazo, will try.


#772

They sure did


#773

Seems Jim Beam did that too with Knob Creek?


#774

Yes dropping age statements seems to be more common. Knob is still a good pour. Haven’t had an off the shelf in a long while.


#775

It’s Friday! Another Anisette time! This time was Floranis, originated from Alger.


(Robin) #776

Friday and DH wanted bourbon. Willett on the rocks.
