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.

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.

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.
