What Are You Drinking Right Now?

Recommended Posts

Coffee right now, but has anyone else here ever tried a Bloody Mary with Aquvavit (Danish spirit made with Caraway)??????

Delicious!  I highly recommend.......

I once made a liter of garlic/dill acquavit. It made a hell of a bloody Mary and later became so addictive that I started drinking it iced, out of small glasses.

Sounds excellent. Did you infuse it with herb or seed?

Would you care to share the recipe? I'd love to see it!

My notes call for three cloves of garlic and twelve sprigs dill per liter. It should sit at least a week and can go as long as you want (Marcus Samuelsson at Acquavit says to wait at least six weeks, but I get impatient), and you can taste and adjust at will.

(No other flavorings, Heather)

Whole garlic cloves or chopped?

Whole. Looks cooler and I don't want to get little bits of raw garlic in my drink.

1985 Cabernets from Iron Horse. A cabernet sauvignon and franc blend. Alternatively spicy and smokey with hints of chocolate. Quite yummy. We were eating light (some grens and a bit of cheese) so maybe not the best setting for the wine. Next time I will try it with some pork.

Just going downstairs now for a nip of Berta Grappa di Moscato. Just the thing to counter the lingering burn from lunch at Joe's Noodle House (Dry sauteed beef and kimchee)!

After a long day, we were enjoying some Korean at home from Han An Ruem (Kalbi, spicy pork, several types of Kim Chee). We polished off the last of our Aperol. Aperol is owned by the company that brings in Campai but they refuse to import it to the US. It used to be here a while back but now no more. And with my next trip to Italy not being until October.....

Any how... Aperol is a citrusy aperitif with a lightly bitter edge. Went great with our spicy stuff!

The '04 Shea Vineyard pinot from Ken Wright Cellars is pretty damned tasty, too.

Unibroue Édition 2005. At the Engineer's Ball after-party at the TJ Suite in the Mariott (Not that I WENT to the e-Ball this year). From a red Solo cup. At this point I'm out of both badges and guns.

Pish. Call Touton and get some Tesseron 1929. That's the real deal.

Now wait a tic - Germain Robin, especially the X.O. is shattering stuff. Better than anything I've had in X.O. Cognac. because, as you know, it's made with better fruit.

I'd take it over Louis XIII any day, that's for sure.

Last night with Seared Scallops.

2003 Ramey Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay. In my oppinion one of the best california chards out there. I would put this up with Aubert, and Kistler single vineyards in a second. If you can find it buy it.
