    Default What are you drinking tonight?

    We always talk food, how about wine?

    Tonight it was Southern Right 2019 Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa. Went well with grilled sardines and beet salad -Mike G

    Three shots (in a single juice glass) of Laphraoig 10 Year Old followed by an IPA that’s poured from a glass bottle NOT an aluminum can.

    2014 Machete (California Syrah blend) from Orin Swift (Dave Phinney, not Davis Phinney) with a lamb meatball and chickpea Middle Eastern dish. Not that I really care, but apparently this wine was Wine Spectator's no. 6 wine on their top 100 in 2016. It's yummy, fer shure.

    Preceded by a Founders Brewing Porter (no relation) from a bottle.

    i went in to the supermarket to buy my usual really cheap Italian white wine which I use for poaching food. Whilst I was cooking I had a sip and found it surprisingly acceptable.

    I’m halfway through a dry month and Hop Lark water has been my go to. Went nicely with smoked ribs tonight.

    That said, I have some Triple Crossing pale ale and Yola mezcal waiting for me in a couple weeks.

    There was nothing but Budweiser in the fridge on returning from the ride, but it was not a lawnmower beer kind of day. Too cool.

    My brilliant wife had bought a Mondavi cabernet, aged in bourbon barrels, that was spot on. One of my brilliant sons had brought over a package of Aunt Elsie’s super-thin oatmeal ginger cookies that paired perfectly. Half the package and half the bottle.

    Brilliant wife also made a concoction of chicken thighs with cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, onion, and cabbage that the garden is overflowing with. A little mozzarella from the store. And cabbage.

    Finished with a bourbon cocktail.

    2005 Beaucastel. Very good.

    Another I've really liked recently is McPherson Cellars Les Copains from Lubbock.
    It is the closest alternative I've found to a Tempier Bandol

    I've been digging the local gin recently. This stuff with some Fever Tree tonic in a glass full of ice is heavenly.

    First 100 mile + ride in several years.
    The first 90 miles was fun.

    A Kviek I started last Thursday using some wort I pinched from the whirlpool and a couple of additions. I used my composites curing oven to achieve the ridiculous fermentation parameters these things have: "grain to brain" in four days flat and it's actually pretty good: a bit farmhouse-y and a distinct note of orange peel but otherwise true to the wort.

    Loved the read, thanks for that.

    FWIIW If there is a better bottle of Pure Agave Tequilla than Casamigos I want to know about it. True, the brown booze season is in full swing yet we still enjoy a simple toast of Tequilla and squeeze of lime.
