I don't know what I'm drinking tonight, but I know what I'm eating. I think I'll stop by the cheese shop that recently opened in my neighborhood. See if I can't find something delicious.

Had some piolunówka tonight. Surprisingly, it is not half bad. Apparently, it is basically a wormwood macerate, but in this particular case, it somehow works. I guess it is because wormwood is used sparingly and substantial amounts of sugar is added to counter the bitterness. It is quite similiar to a bitter in the style of, say, Fernet Branca or Gammel Dansk.

What? No one thought my Bloody Fairy recipe was worthy of ridicule comment?

It actually turned out to be pretty good.

I had planned on having a bloody mary this evening and that recipe seemed like a neat tweak.

I'll check my cupboard for ingredients.

Thanks for the recipe. :cheers:

My plans for fine cheese was derailed at the last minute by an invite to a benefit dinner for a local theatre company. So instead, I'm enjoying an aperitif of apples and lesser quality cheddar with a glass of Luna Verte.

Oh, how I was avoiding that. I don't have all the ingredients for the Bloody Fairy so I'll have to settle for something less......charming. ;)

I'm hoping that just that will happen chez moi later this evening! :devil: But first a jazz concert, some drinks, and a little snack here. Then we'll see what transpires. :cheers:

Oh, I love Bloody Mary's Hiram and, if we meet in NOLA, I'll take you to the Gazebo on Decatur by the French Market for one of the most unbelievalble Bloodys you've had! Trust!

I was too lazy to go to a variety of markets to pick up the ingredients for the Bloody Fairy. That's got some stuff in there!

I must keep up my strength, however, for The STL Food & Wine Event tomorrow. Hah! What won't I be drinking then! :drunk:

Tonight I sipped on a little 2003 Monterey Estancia Pinot Noir Pinnacles Vineyards and I gotta tell you, it is damned good! I got it a couple of years ago and has been sitting in my "cellar" waiting for me. I forgot about it. Getting old, huh Shabba? :wheelchair:

Now, I am sipping on some Eich and it is pretty good. Very fragrant with a surprisingly light taste. Nice milky and opaque louche. No sugar. :cheers:

I can barely imagine what treasured libations are languishing in that basement of his.

Nothing beats cleaning up after last years' flood and finding a 6-year old barleywine.
Sadly, I have nothing older than 2 years down there, 'xept for a 6-pack of barleywine,
vintage unknown but a thick dust layer that dates it at least 3 years.
Also there's a 2-year old lambic and a 1-year old lambic, as of this coming April,
when I shall brew another so that by next April (2008) I'll have 1,2, and 3 old lambics to start playing with gueuze blends, weeee!!!!
Actually, every April I brew a 15 gallon batch of beer that I infect with lambic cultures and split into three 5-gallon batches, one for aging and blending, the other two to be aged on fruits. The first year was peaches and cherries (not the proper kind unfortunately), last years(April '06) is just reaching the sour point I want so I'll be adding the fruit soon, probably peaches and raspberries. Next batch I'm thinking about pineapples.
Also in the next week or two I need to bottle a porter made back in October, with organic Turbinado sugar.
I fermented with American Ale yeast then pitched a champagne yeast in the secondary,
once that was done I added French oak chips (for their vanilla character) that I soaked in Knob Creek bourbon. It is just short of 11% and has a nice dry, oaky finish.
I can't wait 'till next winter to start drinking this one.

Yes. I hate talking about beer.

Grey, THAT, reads like some interesting shit there boy!

Yes, it was a very tasty dinner.
Asiago, dill, red onions, smoked salmon, capers and a wee bit of crème fraîche :cheers:
Though the Reisling was good with it, I would have liked a bit more fruit flavors to contrast the tang from the pizza.
I'm gonna meet pierreverte!
