Festive drink of choice

Wed Dec 06, 2017 8:43 pm

Currently on Tanqueray and fever tree tonic, which is nice, but I think my fave is Bombay Sapphire East and fever tree, with a squeeze of LIME.

But what about you ... :?:

Home made sangria by the jug, with plenty of brandy and "43" as basic ingredients. :D

Sloe gin made by Mrs. DS. The first glass taken when she writes the first Christmas card.

I don't really have a festive drink? i love real ales and a nice glass of chardonnay and if i hit the top shelf then it's southern comfort on the rocks, but that's just a typical night :lol:

I've had a bottle of southern comfort, unopened for some 8 years, in my kitchen. Apart from occasionally liking a sip in my early 20s I've no idea why I bought it. :D Nice in a pint of snakebite though, called a Depthcharge back in my student days. Lethal.

PHILISTINE.

Gin and Tonic is always best with a twist of Lemon. Never Lime. Americans have always tried to serve it with Lime. Says it all really. :mrgreen:

That's a cocktail that's changed over the years, as traditionally it always used to be Guinness and champagne.

Yes ... the Guinness and cider combination is sometimes referred to as "The poor man's Black Velvet"
