Okay, by cocktails we mean Gin.
Instead of a movie or music review, or a food entry, we thought a sort of alcohol review was in order for the blog. Something fun.
We're testing out a new less-expensive Gin called New Amsterdam tonight. It's an American Gin, as opposed to the British Tanqueray that we usually drink. It boasts itself as a refreshing modern balance with hints of Juniper and notes of Angelica. They use the word "sophisticated". We'll see about that.
The New Amsterdam is over $10 cheaper for the same volume of bottle we usually buy of Tanqueray (1.75L); so due both to an tightening of the purse strings, and an experimental streak we're feeling today, we decided tonight we'll give it a whirl, see if our palate can handle it, and if we wake up with a headache from a "lesser quality" spirits. (Gin of high quality comes from Europe, in our opinion; they even have four different legal classification for Gin, whereas in America there are far less classifications, and we imagine lesser general standards.)
In any case, Gin on the rocks, stirred with a knife, as usual. (we've grown to dropping out the lime wedge these days)
Come back after tonight and we'll post our opinion here.
Have a fun and happy Saturday. Cheers!
