I like wine. Occasionally serve it :)
Love it. But first a preamble.
Way back 25 years ago Spanish and Portuguese wines were an amazing bargain. They were the real deal old world wines. But then it changed and we started getting Iberian peninsula wines which were weird fruity new world things. So it was a thrill to find a wine all in Portuguese, not one designed for this market. Label not in English . The real thing. Blend of Tinto Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Jean and Alfrichiero. Earthy barnyard. Terroir. Superb. — 17 days ago
A sweeter vermouth the usual extra dry style. Blends well with gin of course depending on the gin mind you. Works over ice with lemon, and with soda. Pretty versatile as it’s not very botanical but the sweetness can get in the way. But only $8 it’s a useful addition to the cabinet. — 17 days ago
Goose Island beers have not been as good since mass produced by ABMiller and this very much dropped off in quality . Recently it seems closer to what it used to be. Easy drinking, more character than a light beer but some hoppy bite. Only 4.2% alcohol. Not spectacular but decent enough. — 17 days ago
