Splash O'Cran

  • Absolut Pear Vodka
  • Sparkling Cranberry Juice
  • Ice

A refreshing summer drink on the sweet side. Great for a 5 o'clock happy hour on the weekends along with some salty snacks.
Fill glas with Ice Cubes, pur one shot of Pear Vodka over it, fill with the Cranberry Juice and stir.
The color of the drink is nice so I should probably come up with an idea for some sprig of green from the herb garden to decorate the rim of the glas with...

Single Malt Scotch

For years I have been buying myself every year a nice bottle of Single Malt Scotch for the Christmas Holidays. Every year a different kind from a different region. Last time around I decided that I would be able now to settle for my favorite. It is from the Islay region, a small island off the west coast of Scottland (the four main regions are Highlands (with Speyside and Islands), Lowlands, Islay and Campbeltown).
The Islay Scotchs do have a disctinct flavor, setting them appart from the family. There is an aroma of Peat and Sea in them (really intense in the Laphroaig Single Malt) that is very special and sitting in front of the fireplace on a cold winter night and putting my nose in a glass of old Single Malt Whisky is very high up on my list of cozy things to do. Oh yes.. sorry, my favorite of course is the Lagavulin Single Malt (16 year old).

Magic Grappa

I brought a bottle of this Grappa back from a Rome trip in 2012 and this was the best Grappa I ever had! Yes - 'had' - it's gone. Empty.... buhuuuu! Worse, I can not seem to get it here in the US of A. I guess I have to plan another trip to Italy. I guess it would be worth it.
