    I recently bought what I thought was cinnamon flavored whisky. It had crazy high sugar content, and I went very low carb back in January. Tasty, but super disappointing as it wasn’t good for the diet. Live and learn I guess.

    I recently had some Crystal Head Vodka, from a miniature crystal skull bottle.

    That looks excellent. You have a slice a very good life if the taste matches the appeal of the can and the color of the pour.

    Today, I have been mostly drinking, Session Pale Ale Steam Brew (4.9%), from the Lidl. Lighter than the Imperial Pale ale, but v.good value for money. I'm not being paid to promote this stuff, but the can art is just sublime. 😋

    Quite enough alcohol for one evening, but, it has such a great can.
    The description alone made me want to drink it, and then I see that it looks amazing. Great color. And of course that glass is perfect.

    That sums it up. Someone also connected an irrigation ditch to the moat and the beer began to be channeled to an unknown region.

    Some work to do on it...

    I’m actually barely drinking these days. Mostly flavored water. Trying to live healthier. Lost some weight; started with keto, now just healthy eating and calorie watching. Back to my mid-college weight, lots more energy, sleeping better. But kinda frustrated my pants fit so poorly now.

    I’ve had the real stuff once and that was enough for me. I get why some people like it, but...

    It sounds like alcohol is helping everyone’s corona life. I’m closer to K’s Turkey 101 (although I prefer my bourbon with a little less octane-maybe a good 80 proof Jefferson or when I’m really ready for a great something like Bookers).

    Of course, a good IPA makes every day better.

    It probably was pretty toxic in the days Pyat was drinking it in Pera. But today the stuff they sell in the US over the counter is likely much more tame than the *real thing* they sold back in the days of Poe and others. Now it’s just overpriced pretension. But I love the taste of licorice and anise so I enjoy a sip or two.

    To your health, Kimba. To our dear patron Mike’s health, and to Linda. To all our pards on the moonbeam roads, friends here and missing.

    Does absinthe make the heart grow fonder?🙄

    i won't touch the stuff myself J-Sun; i've been led to believe that that particular liqueur is a tad more toxic than most refined drinks and besides doesn't Dracula wield it like Rohypnol on some of his prime targets?

    This time around i'll drink to some old friends out there in the cold somewhere and so for old times sake i'll down a shot of Wild Turkey 101.

    I've been saving a bit of cash by buying beer in from the Lidl. They do a German IPA beer & a stout in steampunk 1/2 litre cans. They hit the spot. Also, their St Gerardus beers are straight out of the Gulpener Brewery, in Gulpen, in the South of Limburg & reputedly based on the old Wittem cloister recipe book. They´re all worth trying. But, if you come across a six pack of the blue labelled, ´Saison Bier,' grab it. It's got loads of hoppy flavour, but light enough & only about 6%, so a good alternative for when you're bored with pils. GerSais_00.jpg

    Pietro , that stuff has been banned since the Brown Man of Laahr redecorated the front porch with it after he had 20 pints , the painting bill was enormous . I found a load of kegs of Younger's Number 3 ale in the cellar , I might be while doing the inventory....one of the Pan Tang Pole Dancers is helping me.....

    Well, I managed to bring back a couple of kegs of de Maastrichter Maltezer. So that's me fixed for a day or two. ;>)
