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


this only skirts the periphery of the definition of ‘drinking’, but …

Cupping Eval. of my two latest trial roasts of one of the new green beans i picked up. Costa Rica Tarrazu, Finca San Francisco, Washed.

Left was a more aggressive roast profile shorter time, Right was less aggressive, longer time. The one on the right came out a bit lighter in degree, say, City+ vs Full City. Both delicious, but def. some difference in flavors.

Found this in a random mag- muddle a fennel bulb and fronds, add gin, green chartreuse, simple syrup, lime juice, shake. Strain, serve over ice, top with soda water, garnish. Tasted like spring.

I was lucky to find this fennel bulb in the garden this morning.



Made some ti punch this weekend, tried Death & co’s suggestion by using juice of half lime, Mr n prefers the classic with less lime and cane syrup and more the taste of rum.



I like Smuggler’s Cove’s recipe (which I think is pretty much the classic recipe), which is basically a teaspoon of cane syrup, 2 ounces of rhum agricole, mix, and then you cut out a quarter sized piece of the outside of a lime, squeeze a few drops of juice in it to your taste, and drop the peel in the drink. You can put ice in it or not, and adjust quantities as you like. Chacun prépare sa propre mort.

Not today but a few months ago. I ordered an old fashioned from the bar in the Mob Museum in Las Vegas, and received a glass of ice and a book instead.


However, when you opened the book…





Cool presentation. I suspect a price to go with the theatrics



This was a little expensive at $14 but not super expensive for Vegas. As an aside I recommend checking out the Mob Museum (officially the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement) if you’re in Vegas and have a couple hours or so to spare. They make their own moonshine too.



Very reasonable for Vegas
