Last night 45 people parted with their precious cash to learn from this idiot how to make wine-based cocktails... oh the fools! I flew by the seat of me pants freestyling my way to a Ginger Lime Splice, Rosé Spritzer, French 75 and my mistake on the mistake that is a Sbagliato. Thank you to the ever awesome Laura @bustle_studios for helping to host. Next stop: Riesling & Hip Hop night.
Cherries abound. Whole-bunch pressed. Extra time on skins. No filtration. Funky cherries at that. A bit of undergrowth, not too much, just enough to keep it real. Fresh, flavoursome and cheap. This little harem by @jamsheedwines is definitely worth a play.
Timeless. Stumbling through old albums on the pod. Air’s Moon Safari, a youthful 20 years young in just a matter of days. Early summer, Parisian sunlight. Coffee & croissants. Harpsichordists on metros. Life was simple. Conflicts of rose-tinted reminiscence and a “where has the time gone?”... goes quick while you’re having fun. Still fresh, still evocative, still fucking good.
Morning drinks under the bachelor Christmas tree. @regalrogue rosé vermouth to flatter fruit salad; BPW bubbles for the pastries. And @ashtonhillsvineyard sparkling Shiraz because nothing screams Xmas more than sparkling red to wash bacon & eggs. Trolleyed by midday, now to make a mince of a family bash. Merry Christmas punks.
So, it's Summer, you want cocktails, but cocktails are complicated.... Problem solved, join us for the launch of the Brown Paper Wine Club where you'll be learning how to cocktail-up a storm, without venturing too far from the wine already in your fridge! We'll be enjoying a Friday night knees-up on the outdoor terrace as we learn how to make delicious summer wine cocktails. • Check out Eventbrite “Summer Wine Cocktail Class”
Hi Mum, you can hear me on the next episode of the Emptyosophy podcast. Dribbling a bit about booze. Talking absolute rubbish about the dangers of pistachio terrorism and Brandy Alexander. Link coming soon, unmissable holiday listening.
