    1. Favorite cocktail recipes and unnatural drink experiments?

      It's time for another round of "name your favorite mixed drink, and how to make it". Or describe an outlandish, ill-considered, or random mixture and how it turned out.

      Right now, I'm drinking an unnatural experiment made with odd drams to get rid of a couple of near-empties prior to moving.

      2 oz. jack pine gin (freezer cold, local product, could use any botanical gin)
      1 oz. peony baijiu (gift from a friend's visit to China)

      Shake with ice, serve in a coupe glass with a very small amount of ice. It's good enough that I'll try making peony-infused vodka next spring.

      [I don't usually enjoy mixed drinks because so many are too sweet - that's the spouse's domain. But some combinations of herbal, floral, spicy, bitter, or sour flavors work for my taste.]

      Feel free to share what's working for you.

      For my daily tea-drinkers: What are you drinking today? Where'd you get it? How would you rate it?

      For my non-tea drinkers: Feel free to ask any questions you might have about the most widely consumed beverage in the world (next to water). Share a time you had a good experience or a bad experience.

      Some questions to get us started:

      • Do you drink water? Does it taste like anything?
      • Coffee or tea? What kind? Do you put milk in it?
      • Do you drink the alcoholic beverages? What's your drink of choice?
      • Do you drink the carbonated beverages? What's your fizzy drink of choice?
      • Do you drink the fruits or the veggie or the smoothie? How you drink it?
      • Do you make a Drinky McDrinky Drink, what is it, how do you make it so I can drink it?
      • Does the word drink sound funny now?
