    6BAA6B61-7B02-4D06-8332-67D8C1548DDC.jpeg Christmas Cocktail quiz time

    What am I about to make?

    Clue - The vermouth isn’t ideal to be honest, but they don’t even make the one in the original recipe, so I’m making do for now to see if I like it. If so I might get something a bit more bitter to use.

    EDIT - There’s sugar syrup and a cocktail shaker just out of shot too

    Was a lot easier in the olden days, one large bucket and everyone pours in whatever booze they had...

    Corpse Reviver No.2?

    Should be Kina Lillet instead of Nolly Prat right?

    In answer to your question,'what am I about to make'?

    With your cooking and cocktail making skills and bearing in mind that the female species like to be lavished with such things.....I'm guessing LOVE?:emoticon-0130-devil

    Bang on Stockholm <applause>
    You win the cocktail of your choice from whatever ingredients you have to hand...

    Yes it should have been Kina Lillet, but they don’t even make that anymore (so Vespers are bollocksed too)
    Apparently Lillet Blanc will do, although Cocchi Americano is closest, but even Diffords says just a Vermouth will do, so that was that.
    Tasted perfectly acceptable to me, although I’ve never had one with Kina.

    Great post, I second your last sentence, don’t take anyone/anything for granted.

    This time last year, we were celebrating, my only bro (the one that introduced me to City away games) had the all clear from the big C, his stem cell transplant deemed a success, we were talking family hols. Fast forward, during the year, he sadly passed away suddenly, followed suddenly by my Mum, and of course Covid to contend with. I have to admit to struggles/have been in some not good places, and whilst we all moan & groan, definitely please don’t take people for granted.

    Am not posting for sympathy votes, Johnbo’s post just resonated. Best wishes to Johnbo and his dad for his recovery.

    You've had a hard year Tigress and my thoughts are with you...We lost my wife's young sister to cancer in April(a month after diagnosis,she was 'riddled').We'll have a better 2021...Take care.
