Probably a bunch of crazy concoctions with bitters. I got a set of the Fee Brothers bitters for Christmas.
hmm that's a tasty hamburger!

Guinness with lunch. This evening will be devoted to the Jade line with as many glasses as my short little body will endure. In celebration of mental clarity........and the pure pleasure of watching as it fades into a warm, fuzzy green fog.
Putting out a "safe journey" to those travelling. :cheers:

I was thinking of sticking to a nice Earl Grey with a slice of fresh bergamot... but today has curiously made me thirsty for a glass of absinthe.

I'll even absomphsize it.

Moose Drool. In a glass. Thank you very much.
Genepy liqueur for dessert. Genepy is on my desert island list. At least tonight it is. *smile*

It has been a good, relaxing evening.

Is that the stuff that got you all boned up last time?


Hell no.

It takes true beer porn like Midnight Sun's Berserker to elicit a reaction like that. :mbanana:


MmmmM I love the Stone Kona Coffee.. Stone has another collaboration that they just released a little bit of info, between them, Firestone Walker, and 21st Amendment. Style is yet to be released, can't wait to see what it is.

Speaking of the Berserker, I was just home in WA for 2 weeks and had some EPIC beer hauls! Midnight Sun Berserker, TREAT, and 3767 .. Russian River Deviation, New Belgium La Folie Falling Rock Tap House 10th Anniversary (blend of 10 vintages of La Folie), etc. ahhh. I love WA.

OH YA BABY!!!!

(I see what you mean)


And don't forget it's aged in cabernet barrels!

Older Viscosity. It's good, but not as awesome as I was hoping. The high ABV is kicking my ass though.


Any carbonation issues?


Nothing exciting here for me tonight! (sorry for the super long multi-quote post, a lot of exciting things in here!) Just sipping on some Michigan local beer that a friend brought me back.

Friday indeed! Finished a bottle of VS Courvoisier with a girlfriend at lunch.
Good fortune abounds as coming out on top of a wager saved me from having to drink a bottle of Jeremiah Weed bourbon. :biggrin:

Not always, but I do right now! There's a huge foodie grocery here called Central Market. It's pretty well known but then it also only exists in Texas, so apologies if you're familiar with it already -- I never know who is.

Anyway, they're having a 'citrus fest' for the month of January and have fresh bergamot, among other things. I've been enjoying the hell out of them, too! :twitchsmile:

They're not cheap, but I have half a mind to crack open the piggy bank and splurge on a bunch to see if I can use them to make a bergamot-cello. The rinds have so much oil in them, that I reckon it would turn out fantastic.

Friday, ahh, yes... So far I've had a fine glass of Roquette 1797, followed by a very big glass of Doubs Mystique. And with that, some delicious pieces of dark chocolate, 85 % cocoa. Excellent.

Must say this luxurious kind of relaxation is enhancing the film experience I'm having right now, watching... ehrm... the last episode of season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. :) "Restless". So far one of my favourite episodes. (I blame my ex for this whole thing, she's responsible for luring me into the Buffyverse!)
A most layered episode, and the dream sequences are so wonderfully bizarre. Got to love the Apocalypse Now reenactment, with principal Snyder as Colonel Kurtz.

Sounds like a grand evening. I had some 85% chocolate this morning for breakfast. I'm a fan of dark chocolate and absinthe. Yummy!

Cheers!
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I love bergamot and Earl Grey tea, but had no idea until just now that bergamot was a citrus fruit with a rind. I kinda figured it for a leafy herb. Color me wrong! :blush:

Chocolate for breakfast? Not a bad start to the day! And I hear it's pretty healthy, too. :)

Seriously speaking, have you tried for example a couple of buttered whole-grain toast, with some slices of cheese, and a glass of milk, and then topping it off with dark chocolate? Fantastic, and a real morning kick-start!
:cheers: back at you!

Yum. I know what I'm having for breakfast. Thanks Boys.
Mindshifter, you are evil. Almost more evil than my twin if that is possible. Now Joe will have to suffer through an episode of Buffy.
I'm enjoying Prosecco with a healthy splash of Genepy liqueur. Sweet and tart.
Travel safe Ron.

(Perhaps that too would go well with chocolate?)

I tell ya, if a good version *ahem* ever made it to market, I'd probably keep that distillery in business all by myself.

I was actually planning on doing some Genepy Liqueur/Persimmon truffles this weekend. I'll let you know how they turn out. :)
