Me an Jules are making up some white russian cocktails.

 

1 part vodka

1 part kahlua

1 part cream

 

Bit of cocoa powder and cinnammon sprinkled on top to garnish.

 

Little bit pissed atm. :D

The dude abides! One of my favourite easy drinking cocktails, the wife loves them.

 

Tonight I have had enjoyed a couple of old fashioned cocktails, a superb dry Reisling from Alsace with dinner and a wee dram night cap.

A bit rough today, had a wee dram of this exotic Indian whiskey last night.....

I'm having the worst hangover in the history of hangovers.   I learned two things last night. 1, toontastic has some really nice people on it 2, red wine sick is very difficult to

You need to drink loads of white wine tonight and puke up on the red wine sick

I love a dry Riesling. :)

 

I don't normally like fruit ciders but I tried passionfruit Rekorderlig last night. Not bad just for one, would get a bit sickly drinking a lot of it though.

Its American IPA, a bit like Goose Island...but not as much as this stuff, which is another IPA, this time brewed in Cornwall.....

Both available in Sainsburys, its a sort of popularity contest for ale...they dont usually stock either, but the one that sells the most stays on the shelves. Not sure how long the gig is running, got these two last weekend, theres dozens to try :thumbup:

I've some fosters cans and some budweiser bottles in the fridge as I officially come down from 36 hours work interspersed with the odd few hours sleep. Nothing special about the drink it's just cold, wet and cheap, a bit like going to a home game twenty plus year ago. :D

Spelling may be a bit incorrect on some of those, was hastily making notes in my phone at times.

Was I the only one who thought those elephants were high heels? :whistle:

 

Also the white russians are lovely. Can get them in revolution called a russian bride i think. The trick Brock, is to use vanilla vodka - makes them even nicer

:good:

 

Any favourite?

 

I think my favourite overall was the Brauhaus Lemke Weizen as I really liked their pub as well, it was exactly my sort of place. The original was nice too - although it was darker than I thought it wasn't too heavy. Also liked Schöfferhofer Weizen, Erdinger Kristallweizen and my well-hidden girly side loved Berliner Weiss with blackcurrant/raspberry flavouring.

 

Special mention to the 1L serving of Paulaner Oktoberfest which I needed both hands to drink :lol: and also to the Köstritzer black beer which I shouldn't have judged based on its appearance because it was a lot nicer than I expected.

M&S do a nice Chablis from Brocard. I was in Chablis in April, bought 12 bottles for keeping and 6 to drink. Wasn't that impressed by the organic stuff I tasted at Brocard though. Mind I was canny pissed at the time. They do sell a lot if it in the UK apparently.

 

Splashed out 45 a bottle for the grand cru, sounds a lot but is actually good value. By far my favourite white wine, its all about the 'minerality'. The grand crus are like drinking silk.

Don't say I never give you nowt :)

 

 

Bullhorn gets its name from superstitious Cornish tin miners. If they met a snail on their way to work, they avoided bad luck by giving it some of their dinner or a little tallow from their lanterns. Bullhorn was the nickname given to snails, because of their horn like antenna.
