It's true. Busch is manageable if kept cold and swallowed at the same time as my pride. In any case (no pun intended ;-)), cheers!

Yay for lithium. Sounds poisonous, which is good.
Nay for helium. The last thing a grown man wants is to sound like David Beckham.

Drinking heineken.  It’s pretty fancy compared to my usual American Pilsner light stuff.

I'm thinking a beer named "CrunchBang" would be high alcohol.

CrunchBang beer is not recommended for anyone needing a stable body or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. CrunchBang beer could possibly make your mind go CRUNCH! BANG! Therefore CrunchBang beer comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

BunsenLabs Covid-19. Leaves you face-down on your chest and in need of a ventilator.

BunsenLabs Linux. You have to brew it yourself, tweaking the brew process for hours, and when it's done it may or may not get you drunk.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

Sauvin Sour
It's a "Nelson Sauvin Single Hop Sour Ale".
It's sour alright, but it took me some reading to understand it's not yeasty sour, but fruity sour.
A fairly straightforward clear ale otherwise. It was an interesting experience - could become an aquired taste. Fresh! I wish I had dicovered this in the summer. Thre's nothing like cooling off & quenching your thirst with a nice beer, and this one could make the experience even better.

A geographical nod to Dobbie03! <= Nelson Sauvin comes from NZ.

I've never developed a taste for whiskey, but I recently had a snifter of Maker's Mark Rye - neat - and found it quite smooth.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

What do you have to do to get a damned drink around this place?

I have never had a Vieux Carré cocktail, but I read an article that enticed me to want one. I have all the ingredients for it except one, Benedictine, I have a neurological disease that prevents me from driving, but I finally got my wife to take me to the store, yesterday.

https://www.thespruceeats.com/vieux-car … ipe-761512

Well, they had a shelf space for it, but it was empty. The nice lady checked at four other stores within about 20 miles, but all were out. Sigh.

I want to make a road trip to New Orleans, but my wife won't take me because of the damned virus.

Substitute the Benedictine with Yellow Chartreuse or Drambuie until the pandemic has lessened, and keep your drunk ass home. big_smile

Heh. I rarely even have a drink. I had simply seen a recipe for that one with an accompanying article that made me want to try one.

I made one last night with a Spanish amaro substituted for the Benedictine. It was delicious.

'Tis the season for mulled wine again.

Here's how I made it this year:
Put a little water (maybe 1/4 litre) in a pot, add

  • 2 dried bark strips of cinnamon

  • something like 7 cloves (not much)

  • [ 1 anis star (small) or a dozen fennel seeds if you are so inclined ]

  • 1-2 tablespoons of brown cane sugar

Let that simmer for a good while, and let it cool down by itself, preferably overnight.
Then strain it into some container.

You now have a base for mulled wine that you can keep in the fridge for weeks.

When you decide to make it, all you need is

  • 1 small thinly sliced organic orange, with the peel still on (one reason to put it in only now is that the peel releases to much bitterness over time)

  • 1 litre of red wine

Then carefully (don't want to waste the good alcohol which evaporates at 78 degrees Celsius) heat it up again.

Depending on the wine used, this isn't very sweet. I recommend adding some good local honey, "cold pressed", there's a world of difference in taste.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

^I used to make a syrup quite similar to that, for mulled wine in the days we had a restaurant. Just add a tablespoon to a heatproof glass of wine and zap it in the microwave. Worked pretty well.

Main differences in my recipe: more spices, but that's entirely a matter of taste. Added a piece of dried root ginger, bashed (good for warming the body), coriander seeds (crushed a bit) and some mace (just because we had a lot at hand). Also I added the thinly-pared orange peel (not the fruit) while making the syrup, but put it in towards the end of the simmering, so as not to lose the aroma. Strain before storing in a bottle.

But those are minor differences.

Brave Breweries Milk Stout.  These guys are a local brewery and they make some fine beer indeed.
