again, having another pour of the whisky. Much better now, guessing that pouring the instant after opening was the issue. Still a very unique taste though. If I really think about it I can see the red wine influence, but if I'm just free floating my thoughts turn more towards a rustic whisky version of campari.
>>10396>Paulaner Münchner Hell
What did you think of the Paulaner? I grew up on these Bavarian beers when my dad used to live there, they're my absolute favourite. In Germany you can buy them for almost nothing and every single brand tastes good.
I've noticed Paulaner is becoming more and more available here, although it does taste a lil' different to German Paulaner. I think its a slightly altered export version.
Maybe I'll pick up the Tamnavulin red wine cask if I see some, it sounds good.
It actually took be by surprise how it had this round sour body to it. Not a bad thing mind you, I like kriek lambics, just never came across a lager that was more sour than bitter in character before. Only bought the one since I didn't know what to expect, will have to get a few more to get to know it better, try it less cold. IMO you don't really know a beer if you haven't had it both cold and lukewarm.
I bought fancy vermouth instead of the cheap stuff for once and it does make a great manhattan
I bought myself a bottle of Moscato, Cienna and Riesling. I'll probably drink the Cienna first tonight.
These maids have surprisingly good trigger discipline, except the grumpy one in the middle…
Are we all agreed that shotgun maid is best girl
I dunno I'm kinda partial to MP7 maid
I see two shotgun maids. Are you talking about the one with the Team Fortress 2 shotgun, or the one with the Half Life shotgun?
Wait a minute, this is supposed to be a drink thread. I uhh had some iced tea earlier.
Oops, TF2 shotgun. I drank chocolate milk.
Did you buy it that way or break out the Hershey syrup?
Bought it like that, I haven't heard of chocolate syrup before. Is it good?
>>10763>Is it good?
Genuinely I'm not sure since I haven't had it since I was a kid. But to make chocolate milk we would just squirt an amount of it into normal milk and stir until it dissolves.
Even when using what feels like a ridiculously large amount of syrup, the chocolate flavor isn't nearly as strong as the store-bought stuff. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, some people prefer that. My grandmother actually used to drink store-bought chocolate milk mixed with regular milk because she thought the chocolate milk was just too saturated with chocolate.
Dang you have a cool work
I've been drinking quite a bit today (at probably over 10 drinks) and I am afraid of this last tall "Champagen of Beer". I think I will drink it anyway.
I am become dead now thank you
I had three bottles of a nice sake, I only like nigori.
I have a drinking problem. Tonight I had 2 24oz "Truly Hard Seltzer", 1 19.2oz random orange cider, and 2 PBR 24oz cans. I still wanna drink more and I have never felt so lonely.
Please be nicer to your body-chan, one day it might get very upset with you if you drink so much…
Water; 80% of the time.
Making the journey to the alcohol shop tomorrow again to restock the cache, having a hard time deciding on what to get.
Never had pastis before, so quite curious about a bottle of that. Only have budget for one bottle more, and being pulled between either whisky cause that's nice, gin because the local alc. store finally got in plymouth which I've been curious to try because I've seen good reviews of it and I like gin… But also have a hunch that pastis and gin might be of slightly the same territory as pastis tastewise. Then also have a craving for some Gammel Dansk (danish bitter snaps) which is really good in coffee. But again, it almost has some almost liquorice character in it, and pastis has anise tones, again with the territory problem.
Maybe writing that out help me figure, feel like I should go for whisky & gin, and then the bitter snaps has half size bottles available so it's still within budget. And then I can postpone trying out pastis until there is hotter weather and some good company to enjoy it with as well. Though there is another domestic bitter snaps I want to try too… I am not good at making decisions. ;_;
Excuse the triple, but figure the tasting notes is the most important part. Didn't notice until I was looking at the bottle that the whisky is 46% rather than the usual 40% almost all spirits available here are. Surprisingly smooth and round though in spite of that. Almost as if someone had dissolved fudge in spirits. Very gentle and almost muted. I did taste it right after opening, so hope it opens up a bit with some time.
The pastis was interesting. Essentially like drinking slightly floral liquid liquorice. Not sure it's my type of thing, but I didn't dislike it. Think it would do well under certain circumstances. Slightly annoyed at it though because even now a full day later with having the window open, my room still smells like pastis/liquorice. I don't understand how it can cling to the air so much, from just a single pour.
You should dilute it with water. Never drink it raw.
What makes you assume I didn't? ツ
last time i had ouzo i drank the hole bottle
i either mixed it with water or had it raw
either way it's remarkably palatable, if you like anise things..
anyway the next day i had the most awful ghosting on my vision
not double vision, i was sober by that stage, but a distinct ghost image about every high contrast item in my sight, such as trees against the sky, road markers/lines, signposts etc
at the time it concerned me as it wasn't something that normally happened when hungover, i wasn't wearing my glasses at time so perhaps it was just amplifying my astigmatism through being dehydrated but curiously did not occur when drinking similar amounts of other spirits
Drinking a rusty nail with some scotch I bought the other day. For blended scotch I usually get something pretty plain but this time I picked something that was advertised as having some peat to it, and I like the layers that it adds to the drink. I'm unsure how "acceptable" it is to mix a rusty nail with a good single malt, but I'm tempted to try it, I have a bottle of Ardbeg 10 sitting around.
I wouldn't bother about that. How good can a drink be if you mix it with cheap stuff? Just use the good things. The only difference is that you can drink the good beverages without mixing them while the bad ones are almost undrinkable if not mixed.
Anyway you surely have a bottle of drambuie around, else you wouldn't be able to drink a rusty nail. Therefore I suggest trying a aberdeen angus.
I recently discovered that Sailor Jerry's rum and Mr Pure apple juice mix pretty darn nicely. Its smooth, fruity, and not too strong. The kind of drink I can have 1 or 2 of after work and feel pretty nice without getting too tipsy
If you have both on hand, try putting a shot of Campari into a pint of light beer with a squeeze of lime. Surprisingly great.>>11721
Made a pitcher of cold brewed coffee recently so that's on the menu for the next 5 days or something
pls tell me how to make such a thing for myself if you can, pls thank you
Yeah sure. You need some kind of coffee sack or bag made from cheese cloth material that will hold the coffee grounds and a pitcher/container. Well, you can also soak the coffee grounds directly in water, but then you need to go through the hassle of straining it afterward. Coarse ground coffee is the ideal for cold brew, but I think regular works too. I use a 1:4 ratio of coffee grounds to water. So for 1 cup of coffee, you use 4 cups of water. You let the coffee soak in the water for 24 hours refrigerated. Afterward, remove the coffee sack and that's it, easy cold brew coffee concentrate to last you the whole week. Generally you dilute this 1:1 with water when you actually make something to drink. Some people go 1:1 with hot water to drink it hot, but that seems off to me so I've never done it.
kombucha tastes like shit.
