I just learned of the existence of the caipiroska, and I'm a huge fan. Especially because I have a couple in me right now.

2 oz Vodka
1 oz Simple syrup (or 1 tbsp granulated white sugar)
1 Lime, cut in quarters

Sounds legit

Yeah, although I used turbinado sugar instead of refined.

Seems way easier to whip up than actual caipirinhas - thanks!

My go to for awhile has been mules. I've gotta figure out a new alcoholic companion. Maybe a paloma? Can you make a paloma-alike with vodka? Tequila is a bad time

I was just singing the praises of the caipiroska recently. Give that a whirl.

I bought fancy clearance cider. It's mint and basil??? Whatever. I can swallow it and it's got a decent amount of alcohol in it. Maybe i should start waiting for bougie bullshit beers and ciders to not sell and go on clearance as the store tries desperately to make any money on it before clearing out the shelf.

I sell whisky for a living at the moment (yay for weird "high end retail" I guess) so I get to have some really fantastic whisky on a pretty regular basis.

Continuing my journey through gin, and eyeing a bottle of Roku at the local store. I've loved every other Suntory spirit I've had. Anyone have experience with it? How's it stack up to your standard stuff like Bombay or Gordon's?

I would share... no one asks.

Also, I actually have some experience with the Roku. It is really interesting and tasty, I would say it is a totally different animal than Gordon's or Bombay though. They only have a few bontanicals that are added to the base (juniper infused) spirit. If I remember right it is Sakura leaves and blossoms, Yuzu (japanese bitter orange I think) peel, Sansho Peppercorns (a Japanese black pepper I believe), with sensha and gyokuro tea leaves.

It's got a really light floral and citrus nose, but has a super good herbal vibe on the palate, with a pop of the citrus from the Yuzu, and prickly pepperiness right towards the finish.

I'm generally not super into gins, but it is certainly a nifty one that isn't wildly expensive.

Had an "Autumn Mule" tonight, it was very good. Tanqueray, pear nectar, and ginger beer.
