Next time you're in Osoyoos, be sure to visit the Desert Cultural Center, which is by the Nk'Mip Winery. I spent a whole afternoon there and loved it.

And if you go on to Oliver from Osoyoos, here's what you're going to want to do. Take Highway 97 north from Osoyoos toward Oliver, but on the right hand side of the road, just past the end of the lake, turn right on Rd 22. It's just past the dead tree with the vulture. And on Rd 22, you're going to turn left just past the cactus and the speed limit sign with the bullet holes in it. If you get to the tumbleweed, you've gone too far, turn around and go back to the cactus and try again. Now you're heading north on Black Sage Rd. It's a beautiful drive. You can get to Burrowing Owl Winery here-- I didn't go last time and people yelled at me and told me I should have gone.  Then you get to several smaller wineries. Then there's a church, and people tend to keep going straight here and end up at the landfill. But not you. You're going to go past the church and turn left at the rattlesnake and then a quick right at the guy in the sombrero. If you get to the landfill, you went too far. Go back to the rattlesnake and try again. Past the guy in the sombrero, you're on Ryegrass Rd, and you get to the Church & State Winery, and the Silver Sage Winery. Silver Sage was great. Loved it. The old Romanian lady who runs the tastings is a blast.  After you leave Silver Sage and continue north on Black Sage Rd, you're going to want to turn right when you get to the 3 Mexican drifters.  If you get to the river, you've gone too far. Go back to the Mexican drifters and try again. Now you're on Lupine Lane, and you end up at Oliver Twist Winery. Stop here, do the wine tasting, buy the dessert wine, and then get back in your car, turn right at the Mexican drifters, cross the river, and now you're back to the highway.  But you're not done. Turn right on the highway, proceed north to Oliver, and now you're on Main Street. Look for the building that looks like a firehall. It's not a firehall anymore. It's the Firehall Brewery. People tend to go to the pub on the main floor. But not you. You're going to wander around the side and go down the steps to get to the brewery's tasting room. Taste the beers. Buy the "Holy Smoke" smoked stout. Now you're done.

You picked this thread because you didn't want to post in the reading thread to avoid me asking for a complete book review on how "Kushiel's Dart" made you feel....

Hahaha!  Yes.....well, I have a few writer freinds who write erotica and Kushiel's Dart was pretty tame there.  I really did enjoy the story line, though.

Georgian Bay's Gin Smash tall boys seem to be the hit around here this summer.

I am soooooo durnk right now


I think I might have schmoozed my way into a new job tonight. I am not 100% sure. I don't know if this is good nor not good.

I feel everything is tilted at about 22 degrees starboard. I notice that when I'm heavily smashed things tend to list starboard (ie, the right hand side of the room seems to tilt upwards, the left downward.) Not sure if this is because I am right handed or if there is some other neurological factor behind this.

Wow! That sounds extremely Canadian!

What are Spruce Tip Bitters? I've never heard of it before. Does it taste like Buckley's Mixture?

Damn. I'm all about this. I'll never find spruce tip bitters here, but I'm going to try an old fashioned with orange bitters and maple syrup next time. Thanks for sharing!

I need to find out how to make Spruce Tip Bitters.


So anyway, last Wednesday was National Rum Day.  I missed it.  I am making up for it by attempting to perfect my own Zombie recipe.  Here's what I've come up with:

 Pineapple Juice:  yes
 Rum: Yes!
 Roses's Lime Cordial:  ok!
 Rose's Grenadine: sure, why not.
 Dillon's Orange Bitters:  do it.

I'm still working on this. Will live blog with updates.

Aberlour A'bunadh

Very nice single malt.   Aberlour is usually a "value priced" scotch, with their bottom end offering priced around $55.  And, for the price, it's quite good.

This is not cheap at $125, but boy is it good.   You have to like sweeter scotches.  This is a sherry-bomb of a scotch!  Cask strength at a strong 60.9% Alcohol.
