    Really? It's usually 32 bucks for a handle at my Costco, unless it's on sale for 27. That isn't really high falutin top shelf stuff, but mid range.

    And I wouldn't drink beefeater if you paid me. Ugh. Hangover city.

    Here in price-controlled OR, it's $45/1.75. Ridiculous.

    Righto. Bombay (to myself) has a weird aftertaste, almost cloyingly sweet. Plus the bottle makes it look like Costco sized Axe Bodyspray.

    Paintstripper!?

    I, like my forefathers before me, like to sip my cocktails slowly on the veranda while the help tends to my hedges.

    Everclear is what my poor southern cousins inject into watermelons before a Jugallo event.

    I will pass, good sir!

    You poor soul, you take that firewater and a good limoncello recipe and cut it down to about 60 proof for a digestief. So much better than vodka based recipes that arrive at 30 proof or less.

    Perhaps you should reconsider your kitchen staff. Clearly they need more training.

    My offer to trade my cheap Bombay for your 190 proof everclear still stands. Can't get anything higher than 151 in CA.

    Hmm.... It's been years since I've inspected the kitchens, perhaps a trip down to the cellars is in order. My last visit, and the ensuing publicity related to the floggings, did me no favors, so I am hesitant. But if, as you assert, Everclear is no longer just for Jugallos, I am willing to revisit my prejudices.

    And as for your offer to trade, fuck yes. But I rarely make it south.

    Bombay Sapphire, Sweppes, three rocks, 1/8 of a lime wedged but not squeezed.

    I find preparation order to be key.

    3 rocks first, pour sapphire to top of rocks level, finish with tonic. Submerge lime. Stir once.

    The correct Gin and Tonic: List 'em up Maynard.

    I fill a pint glass with ice, mash (finger muddle?) the shit out of a 1/8 a lime (cut in half thru the middle not end to end, then quartered) then a full jigger (I think 2 oz) of either Sapphire, Tanq or Beefeaters... but let's be honest even well is good for a g&t. Fill with Schweppes. My wife likes diet I like regular but switch back and forth because I seem to drink more and tend to run out.

    I also like to switch up the gin for the subtle differences. Keeps it from getting boring I guess.

    LOL!! Always loved the term "ham fist/ham fisted" Not sure why, just brings a smile to my face when some says it.

    So do you have to hold the glass very still after that to avoid screwing it up?

    So, you're saying I shouldn't go for a second?

    Otherwise, it will have to be a negroni

    I'd say go for the 2nd. But you should probably make it a double.

    While not technically in season yet (isn't it kinda like wearing white-> Memorial Day to Labor Day?) we had our first yesterday because my wife got a new gin that was onsale. Bulldog. Not bad.
