I need to try all of these.

But at someone else's party or something. Right now I spend what I can on the occasional small bottle of Johnny Walker Black Label, both because of expense and because my tiny mini-fridge can't handle a proper variety of liquors.

You don't have to keep them refrigerated.

Yeah, but I like 'em cold. Also I'm self-conscious about people seeing my room and thinking I'm a drunk. :oops:

Get a little cabinet, and then you can switch out whichever one you want to drink that evening in the fridge.

Not a bad idea! I should probably find friends to drink with out here, though. Also, I should get a job. That would probably help. :lulz:

Cainad,
Infinite source of excuses that draw the thread off-topic



I do actually hope to try some of these, though. I had quite a few Gin Bucks over the summer, so I'd like to try out more gin-based drinks.

RECIPE FOR AVERAGE MORNING:

1 cup strong coffee.

1 cup strong coffee.

Prepare drink by emptying contents of each cup, one after the other, into your gullet.

Repeat at least 4 times.

Now you're ready to go to work.

Ice in a good whisky opens up the aromas and flavors of it.

I want Squid to make me drinks.

When I'm making drinks at home, I tend to stay simple and traditional:

Put 6 oz of Death's Door gin in a shaker with as much ice as possible.  Let sit for a few minutes.

In a martini glass which has been in the freezer for 10 minutes, add a splash of white vermouth.  Swirl, then dump out into the sink.

Peel about an inch and a half of the rind off a lemon, the squeeze into the glass (skin side down, to release the oils), and rub around the rim.

Shake the gin viciously for 90 seconds, then strain into glass.

Too dry?  Try a Hearst:

2/3 gin
1/3 sweet (red) vermouth
dash bitters (preferrably orange (or homemade Squid bitters))

Place in shaker with ice, etc.


Another favorite is a Negroni:

1/3 gin
1/3 sweet (red) vermouth
1/3 Campari

as above, et al.



But when I go out, my default is a Sazerac:

Bitters
muddled sugar cube
Rye whiskey
dash of absinthe
twist of lemon



Sounds tasty... I bet they'd be good with some quinoa thrown in as well.

The only fancy drink you will ever need.

:crankey:
I know, right?!
Just freeze the bottle and drinking glass!
I understand the charm of a drop of water, but using ice to both cool your drink and add that drop of water means you will never reach the combination of perfect dilution at the perfect temperature. you can't just add water though, it needs to be very cold so it doesn't mix completely with the scotch.

That reminds me! I have a bottle of Johnny Walker that was quite enjoyable.
Black label, I'm told it is very not special and I like it.
