Tea.

It's very rare for me to drink in the house.

Good work Cookie, I've long thought we need this thread but didn't want to highlight my alcoholism (lol)

Just a basic Hendricks & tonic with cucumber at the moment.

But in the interests of expanding my options I bought some Campari and Vermouth Rosso last week to make Negroni's.

Wasted my money, tastes like crap (imo) but Jess liked it.

Vermouth is the devil's apprentice....it's so dry you just want to drink more & more of it...which I guess is the whole bloody point. A couple of glasses of that and you'll be in Toxic City in no time.


Lemonade, at the moment. Delicious.

I tried to isolate what I didn't like about the Negroni's by trying the Campari and vermouth separately. It was both, either one ruinings a perfectly good gin as far as my taste buds are concerned.

I'm if nothing, I'm thorough.

Gin tastes like you're drinking a bottle of perfume.

But seeing as the OZ drink of choice is Fosters, it's pretty safe to say that in technical terms, the Aussies are a bunch of abecedarians anyway.

Yes we do and we pay for the pleasure, and no it doesn't taste like perfume, well at least not the stuff I drink - it smells and probably tastes nicer than most of the fetid offerings the painted ladies on the perfume counters are pushing anyway.....

I read up on the art of making a good Negroni and found I needed a strong gin with a decent amount of citrus in the flavour profile, plus the Vermouth was key.
I've settled on Antica Carpano which is a bit vanilla-ish if you use too much, but gives a nicely balanced flavour if you change the proportions and up the gin content. Sadly I'm on my own in my house as far as Negronis go, so don't have a second opinion, but it works for me!

Gin is grain based vodka infused with flavour from bits of tree, sounds like a mans drink to me.

And as another thread attests to, a portition of you are too scared to even come to Aussie, so you girls sit there safe in the U.K. and sip your cups of tea :P

Deegee, Tony B & Monty, door is always open ;)
