Aldi were briefly out of their £7.99 Cairanne Cotes Du Rhone Villages, so I took a punt on their £9.99 Chateauneuf du Pape 2016 - they want nearly £15 for the 2015 .. (as an Atheist I do enjoy the irony )
Very pleasant from day 1 and moderately characterful - with a fair bit of heady sherry/Portiness .. and the bottle of Cairanne that followed it seemed a bit OTT in comparison - though it should tone down after a few days ...
Sloe gin with ice and fizzy water. As all the red wine is gone
I opened the Christmas Mamajuana.
I didn't want to but i'm ill and have no proper medicine in the house, so its medicinal.
Fuck me its nice.
Oak-aged gin and tonic.
Pear raki (desperate times/measures)
Local Lisbon red. Superb 14% full bodied, very smooth velvety swigs from a €3.50 bottle.
Violet gin and prosecco.
Currently, Cornish Orchards vintage still cider (7.2%).
Later I may sample the Barcelo Gran Reserva rum my younger brother and his family sent me for Christmas. It smells gorgeous!
How's it taken me till January 1st 2017 to discover how nice limoncello is in a gin and tonic?
Ooh first drink this year..... I had a white port with elderflower tonic. I feel all squiffy. I'm such a cheap date!
I do like elderflower drinks - we have made elderflower cordial the last couple of years and it is excellent in a G&T.
I'm just polishing off some cheap Brandy at the moment though.
Your post must have been stuck in some temporal queue.
Don't think I've ever had limoncello - might have to buy some to try it with G & T. How much do you add?
Oops! I still can't get the hang of 2018
I add a Slosh. Make of that what you will. And a slice of lemon.
I'll try it and report back.
First, I'll have to find where limoncello is sold...
Has anyone tried this: Drink Korean Ginseng, Korean Ginseng Alcoholic Drink - AgraFood
"Korean Ginseng Alcoholic Drink"
Im curious. Supposedly it isnt sweet, so thats good
A cheapish Bordeaux that has the "mouldy cellar" complexity of the St. Emilion I bought far too little of a few years back. To be honest it's a bit weird on first opening, but wines usually improve after 24 hours I find ...
Rees Bier Oktoberfest. Welsh brewery doing beer with German hops.
Yellow hammer. It's my favourite from a local brewery called Hanlons.
Blooms gin (a gift & really lovely) with tonic, ice & a slice.
i didn't look properly in the shop and now "strawberry" and "lime" is in my cider it's rank
Is that the old mout stuff? I tried it and yes it's rank. Passionfruit one is okay.
it's called kopparberg. it claims to be swedish
That's supersweet that stuff. A neighbour gave me some bottles because it was too sweet for him (and he lived on bacclava)
More Blooms gin (fresh bottle) with strawberries & tonic. It’s another level of lush.
Really rash supermaket boredom purchase of Baileys Strawberry and Cream. Nesquick with a meths aftertaste. Hellish. Avoid.
