    Wow, the Plymouth actually sounds good. I've never, ever had good luck with gin.

    And then there is Plymouth:
    Juniper Berries, Coriander, Lemon peel, Orange peel, Angelica, Orris, and Cardamom. They are perfectly blended to give itís audience exactly what it asked for: a Flawless Masterpiece.

    Cori what have you done?! I live in a really small town that doesn't have an upscale bar or liquor store and now I really want to taste these 2 gins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Complex and a bit strange for some folks.
    Worth trying, but some "juniper heads" don't like it I must admit.

    And yeah. that Plymouth is the English standard IMO.
    But what do I know.
    It's fine stuff!

    Also... I admit that I HATE gins that are all beat you over the head with the freaking juniper tree! It's just not necessary. Let's have some refinement please.

    I don't drink a lot either, but I'me willing to invest in nice bottles and have them sit around my house for when I feel like partaking.
    I buy bottles like that cold and try them every so often.
    If they aren't good for actual TASTE... I find ways to mix them until they disappear. LOL

    I'm so proud! My little journal (with much help from Cori) is helping to corrupt two people to the joys of clear spirits.

    Wow, that is a process! I could probably do that in the slow cooker. I have tongue in the freezer from getting my side of beef this year and am a little afraid to use it, but your end pictures don't look so bad.

    I have some oxtails waiting for attention in the fridge now, and a bottle of wine that I really, really shouldn't drink - I think braised oxtail stew is going to happen.

    I'm sure there are a lot of recipes out there that don't require brining - it's such a fatty delcious meat. Also, since it has to cool a bit to get the membrane off safely, you can always put slices of it in a pan to char it a bit and get that boiled look gone.

    I've never tried oxtails - damn, I gotta buy me a cow.

    Regarding the people who have contact with kids you have to have what's called a DBS check in the UK, which means there vetted prior to being able to work with them, it's not fool proof, but its better than nowt!Disclosure and Barring Service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    54 degrees, fork me that's a bit toasty, it's meant to reach a tarmac melting 20 over here today!

    Regarding the gin, very rarely drink shorts, but have you tried Bombay Sapphire?

    Hey Joanie, We are having humidity along with the heat here, very unusual, and it did not cool off at night! I guess this is just a slight taste of what you get in New Orleans. I'm not used to it, I felt like I was awake most of the night.

    DBS sounds like a start. I have tried Bombay and it's good. When I order a martini in a bar, I usually let the bartender choose and just instruct, "not bottom shelf, not top shelf - you pick." They often pick Bombay.

    Ack - the dreaded H-word. Yes, those nights with no relief. At 2:30 this morning, I went to get some water from the fridge and I could feel warm air blowing from the only window I have open (just a crack). All I could think was, "how the f*** does it stay so warm with no sun?" Hope yours lets up soon. There is actually cool water coming out of the faucet, so I'm thinking this might not be a terrible summer - but they all kinda suck down here.
