Was in a hurry. Gin & tonic.
The Jefferson's Reserve on the left is a Total Wine Executive batch. Standard Woodford Reserve Double Oaked on the right.
Stagg Jr Old-Fashioned, but with gum syrup and a little 2:1 simple, instead of 1:1 simple syrup alone. It's nice.

I bought one of these to welcome in my 30 laps around the sun. A very good friend of mine knew I wouldn't drink it unless I had one spare!
I'm a big glendro fan from way back, this bottle was a bit of a gamble and I was really just going for the oldest 1990 bottling available. Incredibly complex, huge sherry bomb, most complete black currant notes I've ever tasted. Needs a bit more air and maybe a drop of water next time I revisit this very special bottle.
Yeah I tend to find most overaged spirits need a bit of air to loosen up, they're usually pretty tight and overwhelmingly woody new, but it's good you still enjoy the glendo now as well.
It's summertime. Gin mule:
I seem to like the whole Hazy IPA craze. One of my favorites so far.
Grilled cheese and kimchi sandwich optional
1-1/2 oz gin, 1 oz St-Germain, juice of a whole lemon, one bar spoon of gum syrup. Muddle with mint, strain over crushed ice. Garnish with mint and lemon peel, drink at the end of a warm summer day.
Never had pleated Bunna before. Pretty sure I like this better than Ardbeg, don't @ me.
Windblown garnish on a Singapore Sling.
Staying with the tropical theme, a couple of Mai Tais.
Happy Independence Day, USians. And happy July 4th or 5th to the rest of you.
Came across the memento mori swizzle sticks that I'd packed away years ago and forgotten about, so I found an excuse to use one. Bourbon and Diet Coke:
Not usually a straight rye drinker, but this one is delicious.
This drink is fantastic on a hot summer night: Scandinavian Daiquiri
2pt Linie aquavit
3/4pt fresh lime juice
1/2pt 1:1 simple syrup
Last night's haul
I got a Heaven Hill sampler pack that came with 5x100ml vials, what I'm sampling today...
