Ginger Tea

leave a comment »

 

  • cut up some ginger and place in a pot with water
  • bring to a boil, and then let simmer for as long as you like (i do half an hour so its extra strong)
  • add honey

This is great for when you are sick and have a sore throat.

Nick made me an old fashioned. It’s real strong, but very delicious. A sipping drink.

sugar, enough water to dissolve the sugar, rye (or any kind) whiskey, 2 dashes of  Angostura bitters

Bronx Cocktail

leave a comment »

Bronx

6 parts gin. 3 parts sweet vermouth. 2 parts dry vermouth. 2 parts OJ. Shake, strain, serve in a cocktail glass.

Think Martini Cocktail but with a hint of orange flavor – there’s not enough OJ here to make it super sweet. We used Hendrick’s for these but I prefer something more, erm, ginny – balance the gin’s flavors with the amount of orange juice. Don’t go overboard with the OJ, though; this is not a gin + juice.

Łomża beer

leave a comment »

DSC_8619

This is a beer brewed in the town that I was born in, a small city on the north-eastern side of Poland. Łomża has a brewing company for some reason and is about the only thing the locals drink. During the summer time one comes across many older men hanging out on park benches drinking Łomża beer as they add to the mess of sunflower seed shells surrounding them.

Łomża beer, much like all Polish beer, is a pale lager . It has clean finish and goes great with Polish food. But then again, vodka goes even better.

This 0.5L botle is 6% ABV. I also have a “hard” and “export” waiting in the fridge for me.
