We got a set of random scotches from the duty free store at Gatwick. After a while we admitted we weren't fans of scotch.

I used to have a double Wild Turkey 101 with a Guiness chaser. Well, not singular... plural. I'd have about 3 or 4 rounds after work. And bring a six pack home with me. That was weekday drinking. You don't want to know the weekend consumption... Somehow I survived long enough to quit altogether. Still scares me to think about it. 

 

Good on ya for doing what is best. I have a drinking problem - when I'm stressed, the last thing I want is a drink. I've actually started having a cocktail in the evening now and then so things must be going ok. But if they don't lay me off at work, I'll probably have to stop drinking again.

I made some with 95% ethanol from Poland. It was vile even after diluting it down. Not sure what I did wrong. It's funny that we can get it here with some effort, because they won't even sell 100 proof vodka.

I may need to make another batch of nocello one of these years, but it's hard to get the green walnuts.

 

If it's not made for consumption, quality control might be suspect?

What's that nut green booze all about? 
 

The ethanol is for consumption (although it was unavailable for a while because of quality control problems). I can still see, so mine was ok.

Excuse me, nocino. Nocello is made from ripe walnuts. I always get them mixed up.

So you know how walnut husks exude black tar when you take the husk off to get to the nuts inside? Well, you take walnuts before the shell forms in that husk, cut them in quarters, and put in high-test alcohol. You end up with sort of a boozy version of that tar. Then add sugar and dilute to make a liqueur. More than you want to know about making nocino. 

Another fun one to make is Pimento Dram, aka allspice dram. Useful for Tiki drinks. I just pulled some out from the back of the cabinet and added a couple of bar-spoons worth to a martini (3 parts gin to 1 part dry vermouth). That was nice enough to post to the Kindred Cocktails site.

Tried a little experiment. I trimmed back the lemongrass before the freeze, and stuck the leaves in a bottle with some thai lime leaves and vodka. Thai gin? It'll take a while, but might be interesting. Worst case it'll keep mosquitoes away...

I suggest a pint of beer in the morning, a glass of red wine in the evening.

I mean, if it's bitterly cold and snowing outside in the dark of the evening and you have a softly blazing fire going in the fireplace, and you're cozying up to your lover...with a glass of beer? I'll take red wine, thank you very much.

Well that was a loooong day. A few more sips are needed. And there's a WS game 7? Gonna be a good night. (If I can stay awake for the whole thing)

Polished a bottle of bourbon last week.   First try.  Four Roses.  I liked it a lot.
