    We had about a dozen limes to use up because Mr. Sandi bought a bulk bag of them recently at Sam's Club--where most everything comes in bulk! They were starting to harden up so we figured making margaritas would be a good use of them. So I made margaritas from scratch with a ratio of 1:1:1 tequila, Controy, and fresh lime juice. I had to WORK for my cocktail this evening! I wound up juicing about 10 limes to get the 4 ounces of juice that I needed. But well worth the effort. ;):):yum

    That's a great idea, @Helmut Visor! Thanks for sharing it. That'll be a good thing to do now that we're nearing summertime temperatures here in Arizona.

    One of my favourite after dinner beers… the whiskey aroma really lifts it.

    I picked up a bottle of Citadel gin a few days ago and used it this evening to make a Negroni to sip in the back yard. It's still cool enough to sit back there in the late afternoon/early evening....but not for long I'm afraid.

    This evening's libation was a Boulevardier, nearly a Negroni like last night's choice but felt like a bit of bourbon tonight. Ellie had some thoughts about giving it a taste. Or perhaps it was mostly the orange wheel that interested her. The temperatures remain comfortably suitable for relaxing in the back yard in the late afternoon--early evening. While 88ºF may seem quite warm to many, in Tucson with our super low humidity, the perceived temperature always seems about 10º less than the actual temperature.

    "Natural pie layer"--love that, @DCS900! Being originally from Minnesota, I know exactly what that means. ;):joy:

    Here in civilised South Australia it is legal to make your own spirits (but not sell them) I have a 25 litre still and make my own bourbon. Works out about one quarter to one third of the price of cheapish bought stuff. The real deal though is you can make it to just the way YOU like it with the high quality ingredients availiable. Also make my own beer. Sadly, Im getting old and the beer is mid strength now and the bourbon I make lasts a lot longer than it once did. I will be having a couple of bourbons after tea tonight.

    I always fancied having a bash at distillation... I make a few home brews and often wonder what kind of brandy might come off the wine?


    Last night was not home brewed though, a rather nice Irish...

    I've not heard of that one, @DCS900. Would it be worth it to track it down here in the U.S?

    People being people, they sure do. Some, in the govt housing areas are distilling for all they are worth to make a few extra bucks.
