    Ya, tiki is one of those things you have to be completely into, there's not really a way to half ass it.

    I've never found a craft beer that I care for. Usually it's either Zeigenbock, Lone Star or Coors.

    Agree 100%

    I'm under control now thankfully, but I've been down some dark holes.

    so if anyone is curious, filtering alcohol can only help it so much. Shitty booze is still shitty. I bought some Seagrams blended whiskey and it was essentially undrinkable straight until I filtered it like 7 times. Even then, it was barely palatable.

    just picked up gin. was reading into it. someone online was saying that technically speaking, gin is flavored vodka. or vodka is unflavored gin. I think I agree with that? I dont really pick up much of a taste in vodka, but gin has more sophistication in it. its mixed with several different things, so sipping that on its own is rather interesting experience. I wanted to pick up an Empress 1908 gin, partly due to it changing color. But that is far too expensive. So picked up a Bombay Sapphire instead. Its interesting. May make for a summer drink over anything else. G&T is neat. Need to experiment with more cocktails on it. This gin is certainly strong

    Tin cup whiskey= pretty decent for a reasonably priced blended whiskey. Definitely drinkable straight or mixed. Little rough to start but gets smoother on the way down.

    Yes, that’s exactly right. Distillers generally make vodka, then infuse it with botanicals (herbs, citrus peel, etc) to make it into gin. The main flavor is typically juniper. Learned this on a tour at Jackson Hole Still Works (who make great vodka and gin btw).

    As far as readily available gin goes, my fave is probably Botanist. Tanqueray works just fine in G&T though and can be had cheaply in large quantities at Costco.

    You can steep it with butterfly pea blossoms and it will do the same thing. They turn it into a pH indicator, and it will work with any clear spirit, or you can make tea out of them.

    My two favorite gin cocktails are a basil gin smash and a gimlet. And a Tom Collins. And Long Island Ice Tea, but that's not really a gin drink.

    I got a decent lemon juicer and have been making really very good Whiskey sours lately. I use maple syrup instead of simple.
