    Based on the Cognac reference by Dave55, don't forget the Ladies Man from Saturday Night Live.

    I am currently enjoying Moscow Mules prepared expertly by my youngest daughter, who is 22 by the way.

    Not long finished my one and only tipple of Christmas Day 2020. For one reason or another it took me until just half an hour before it was all over to finally get to enjoy my eagerly anticipated brandy.

    Riddled with El Jimador Gold Tequila again.
    The boys have learnt what to get me for Christmas.
    Just the right balance between smooth & petrol.

    Currently £17 in Asda.
    May have to pop out for some more tomorrow, as the Zubrowka just isn't tempting by comparison (at least without any Apple juice in the house).

    ...and at the going down of the sun....away from the covid madness and listening to the sparrows gang-raping in the beech hedge. I'm sure that there is an issue of consent here....

    Canterbury Ales - Spring Gold 5.1%.

    I’ve been getting the 9 pint mini kegs in and I’m yet to find a bad beer from Canterbury Ales. The abo e is particularly nice though!

    It was actually the third one, and by then, I just tip the bottle yeast straight in. There's 'cloudy' and there's 'off' and it certainly wasn't the latter.

    Chimay White is 8%. which is nigh-on as strong as the Gold Label barley wine that I occasionally dabbeled with in pubs that served no proper ale.

    For one reason or another, I visited what used to be Belgium's "British" shop today...Since January, it's mostly been "Irish". I bought a couple of bottles of 'Old Speckled Hen' for old time's sake, without realising that Morlands had been taken over by Greene King since I ex-patriated....I shan't be bothering again. A sad shadow of the former ale....Proper beer really doesn't stand re-location. An excuse anyway to photograph a 1930s 'G.R.' ten-sided Lantern tankard carefully balanced on a 1939 WD motorcycle.

    Am I the only piss-arse left on here ? Dabbling in Belgian deco this evening...both chalice and bottle retain their original 1931 form.

    Yeah, Old Speckled Hen, ain't what it used to be. I've been sticking to Kentish Ale, and Draught Guinness. Good Stuff !

    A confession: I like Foster's and am currently drinking a green oil can of the bitter, with a blue can of the mild to follow. Sorry, gang, but VB and other genuine Aussie beers aren't sold here so Foster's is the best I can do.
