I like citrus and bitter stuff. Suggestions please.
3. repeat until hospital
apart from the resident millionaire alcoholic, have ever drunk anything more sophisticated than a JD&coke and have got nothing to offer.
i can see PO beaming with pride at this description
It really really upset me actually, and I had to run out and drink 3 glasses of champagne and drop a G on slutty underwear :''(
French 75s are amazing! You cab use cheap cava to top it up instead of proper champagne (in fact, I'd go as far as to suggest that champagnm's wasted being used to top up a cocktail.)
can two things make a cocktail? dunno
Gin and elderflower go together well. Put in a slice of pink grapefruit.
I went to a gin and tonic place when it was summer and it was ace. They just had different garnishes and flavours for all the different kinds of gin. There was one with saffron and another with pommegranate in. Lovely <3
called the London Gin club. MASSIVE G&Ts for £7 and they had about 25 different gins each with a different garnish.
But French 75s as PO mentions are amazing.
Simply take a double shot of gin. And stick it in a bowl of rice.
equal measures. please try it.
I'd never heard of them until a character drank them in a book I'm reading
and I claim my £5
Gin and Lime Cordial essentially, chilled. Yum.
if i could i would travel everywhere on that train and drink gimlets constantly
Long Island ice tea
you could always make a mojito or caipirinha using vodka.
but i wasn't able to say it. I had to point at the menu.
come back to me when you've got some rum in.
gin, campari, vermouth
would taste terrible, mind
1 shot glass jenever (vodka is adequate replacement)
1 small glass of lager
Recipe: drink jenever in one go, then drink lager at leisurely pace. Repeat until fade.
simple and a brilliant drink to finish a long boozy night on. Always feels that if you use enough limes the vitamin C negates the the effects of all the other drinking you've done and leaves you hangoer free the next morning.
