    Tonight it was a Gimlet with Hendrick's gin, Rose's lime juice, and a hefty squeeze of fresh lime juice which is a bit off-recipe. But, hey, any opportunity to fight scurvy. ;) It has cooled off enough to enjoy our evening cocktail in the backyard again which is lovely! :cool::sun:

    Just racked 28 bottles of ginger “rescue remedy” tonight, ready to be put down to mature for a year... the surplus 1/2 bottle is a little green but still very suppable!!!

    Tonight’s beverage of choice is Kwak. A true beauty amongst the Belgian beers… Amber, fully flavoured and potent (8.4%), hence the 330ml bottle.

    A play on words… it started out as ginger beer but for some reason that escapes me now, I couldn’t bottle it at the right time… so I converted it to wine, but it needed a lot of work to make it passable… hence the “rescue”… and then “rescue remedy” is a popular herbalist type potion to chill folk out… well my wine should do that too… so it’s been named Ginger Rescue Remedy!

    This 12 year old Macallan is going down well.

    Lovely beer, although I prefer drinking it from the original glass, with the wooden stand to keep it from falling over.

    I hope there’s not too much of an “ice in scotch” backlash!

    One of my favorites, LEZ, but haven't had any in years for some reason. Enjoy yours!

    I used to rib people about things like this, DCS, but not anymore. Everyone's taste--literally and figuratively--is different and related to food and drink, taste is in the tastebuds of the beholder. :yum:)

    One of the few whiskies I haven’t yet tried so I must make amends. Apparently it (the 18 year old, (kerching £££££££)) was a favourite of the late Neil Peart as a wind down drink after a day riding between concerts on his GS.

    Eek! :eek: I Googled the going prices for the 18 year old, @Yorkshireman. It looks like I'll be sticking with the 12 year old until I become a drummer for a famous rock band. Which may be awhile since I'm not even a drummer. That said, the 12 year old is delicious! Yes, make amends and then let us know what you think of it please.

    Macallan is my favorite scotch, but above the 12yr mark, it's gotten so expensive that I won't buy it any more. If I want 18yr that's very close to Macallan 18, I go with Glenlivet 18. It's half (or less) of the going rate for the Macallan 18, and every bit as good.

    For my birthday present to myself awhile ago, and for the same price as the Macallan 18, I got a bottle of the Glenlivet 25, which absolutely blows the doors off of the Macallan 18. It's divine :)
