- Planning on getting drunk. Gin content.
Hotel I used to stay at in Barcelona regularly (Hotel Me) had a maddening approach to G&T serving. Each gin had to have a slightly different something or other in the glass. Half a grape and a sliver of ginger, a sprig of thyme and a slice of apple. That sort of thing. Annoying.
Doesn’t sound awful, quite normal to use a garnish that reflects the botanicals in the gin. Gin Mare needs a savoury garnish like an olive or basil leaf.Posted 3 years agotom200Subscriber
Burnsides is a great way of getting drunk as you (I) only need a couple.
Last time I got one in the pub it was £20!
2 parts Gin
2 parts Martini bianco (dry)
1 part Martini rosso (sweet)
1 teaspoon Cherry brandy
2 drops Angostura bitters
10 Ice cubes
I add 2 extra parts of vodka to bring the alcohol content closer to the weekly recommended amount 😆

Gordon’s might be getting a slating here but a few years ago, along with a couple of mates who declared themselves to be gin connoisseurs and particular fans of Tanqueray, I did a tasting experiment in the pub. It was a proper double-blind trial of Gordon’s vs Tanqueray with Schweppes tonic and guess what? All three of us preferred Gordon’s.Posted 3 years ago
Are you drunk yet?
Like I am going to post that, and give Houns a tipoff that I’m vulnerable.
I’ve just invested in some Aldi gin to help commiserate my current rank fitness.
Christ. If your level is currently rank, mine must be well….whatever is several leagues below rank.Posted 3 years ago
