Your 7 Bottle bar; what’s in it?

Dream selects don’t qualify. You must have then in stock.

I honestly don’t understand the question.

Your collection of alcohol right now at home (maybe 7 bottles), what are they?

But it’s true that the title isn’t clear when scan quickly.

Only 7? Uh oh.:rofl:

But ok…rum, bourbon, tequila, vodka, Scotch, Cointreau (mostly for cooking) and brandy (same)

Theres more than 7, but those are the most used.

Oh OK …

Nothing. Yesterday I ran out.

I meant to follow up with mine but got distracted and delayed. Sorry.

Limiting the bar to 7 bottles is a challenge. Notice I didn’t include a single wine, bitter or cherry :sob:.

Knob Creek 12 Year (bourbon)
Cruzan 151 (rum)
Grand Marnier Centenaire
Belvedere (vodka)
Glenmorangie Signet (scotch)
Norseman Norseman Strength (gin)
Tempus Fugit Creme De Cacao

Good morning Sunshine!

:joy:

I think wine, beer, and cider fit into a different category.
Otherwise I’d have the whole list taken up before I started.

Grappa runs the ganut from rocket fuel to sublime - with most tending toward rocket fuel. What’s your go-to?

Second List

The first list is what I am able to currently pour. I would like to get a Don Julio to replace the listed Patron.

The second list is my house pour.

From these impessive replies it would appear that UK households typically have way less grog variety on the shelf than those in the US. Aside from wines and beers most people will only routinely have whisky, gin & vodka in stock, with anything else being Christmas presents or remains of bottles originally bought for a particular occasion. These would probably not be replaced when they are finished (In my house this mysteriously happens when my sons in their 20s come to stay).

I guess this is cultural conservatism on our part. If I offer a guest a G&T the answer will always be “yes please”, never “actually do you mind if I have a Rum Negroni?”

Grappa:

  1. Lorenzo Inga Grappa di Prosecco
  2. Marolo di Barolo
  3. Piave Cuore Selezzione
  4. Poli Miele

We enjoy our Espresso with a snifter of Grappa.

Wait, why do I get a yellow for that?

That’s much the same here. If someone offers a specific drinks it’s usually either accepted or declined.

But usually here, it’s “do you want a drink?” which is more open-ended…and my own choice tends to change from one day to the next

Pre-pandemic, my bottle collection was usually a single bottle of hard liquor (gin, vodka, or scotch) a couple of bottles of wine, and a sixpack of beer. Not going out for drinks/dinner changed that, since I’m entertaining (myself) almost exclusively at home.

Good question. I miscounted. :man_shrugging:t3: Challenge sustained. As a reward you can add one more bottle.
