๐Ÿท๐Ÿธ Rolling Wine/Spirits/Cocktail Thread ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿท

Hello! Thereโ€™s always a lot of beer chat on here which is lovely but I thought itโ€™d be nice to have somewhere to talk about other nice drinks.
Currently on my lazy susan/bar are:
Salcombe Rosรฉ gin
Dead Mans Fingers spiced rum
Absolut Strawberry & Absolut Mango (belonging to my wife)
Spiced Blackcurrant Gin Liqueur
Some Georgian vodka miniatures my Russian colleague gave me.
Jameson whiskey

Been enjoying rum and ginger ales recently. And Toro Fuerte malbec. Need to get some Pinotage in for Christmas.

Tried two non-alcoholic gins the other day too. One awful (Pentire) and one delicious (Sea Arch).

What you drinking then pals?

IT IS BAILEYS SEASON!!! I am glugging that tonight.

Been so obsessed with Whitley Neill Rhubarb and Ginger gin with lemonade and 3 ice cubes this year. It was actually a big problem in the summer because it costs ยฃ25 a bottle and I could have got through a bottle in a week easily if I didnโ€™t restrain myself. And then I want other people to taste how delicious it is but then that further depletes my supply :sob: have asked for a bottle for Christmas.

Not had any mulled wine yet and not happy about it. Fucking love mulled wine.

Top tip; the cheap own brand Tesco salted caramel baileys is better than actual baileys

Ooh interesting, I may have to investigate that

Also, I find using a jigger helpful for not over pouring and going through a bottle of something too quickly.

How is the Dead Manโ€™s Fingers? Saw it for the first in the big Tesco yesterday and almost picked it up, but went for Red Leg instead on the grounds that it was on offer.

Mulled mead >>>>>>>>mulled wine>>>>>mulled cider

Very nice. Not too busy, flavour wise, and a bit fruity. How much was DMF out of interest? They also do a coconut one which I probably wonโ€™t be trying and a hemp one which has somehow passed industry standard testing and Iโ€™m getting a sample of next week.

Never had mead mulled, find it too sweet normally so mulling might work actually.

Itโ€™s great. Whack a measure of whisky in there and youโ€™re laughing

Whisky in mulled cider is good too. Brandy in mulled wine.

It was around the ยฃ23 mark. Probably in the market for some fairly soon - the idea behind buying the Red Leg while it was on offer was that it would be my hipflask drink for Bearded Theory next year, but Iโ€™ve already got stuck in so the chances of that lasting until May are basically nil.

Balls thatโ€™s cheaper than I can sell it for. Usually stop selling things once they appear in supermarkets but I really like it so I might not.

Iโ€™ve told my boyfriend about this 5 times so Iโ€™m praying I get it for Christmas or iโ€™ll just be buying it myself.

I have been drinking a hell of a lot of Makers Mark recently. Itโ€™s our go to staying in drink now which is kind of bad.

Has anyone had this?
My sis in law got me it and I might take it to a byob party Iโ€™m going to tomorrow night but donโ€™t wanna take it if itโ€™s crap??

Taken a bottle of Planeta Noto Nero dโ€™Avola 2012 from the wine fridge this morning, so itโ€™s Sicilian red tonight.
