And the alcohol for tonight is....?

Primarily a Friday and Saturday night thread for people to discuss their favourite tipples. Their latest Gin or Whisky collection or maybe the local ale.
 
I've said before that Mrs Yokel and I are not great drinkers at home except when we have visitors for a meal or on particular occasions. We decided today must be a particular occasion, not quite sure what it was, and enjoyed a a very pleasant Pinot Grigio from Iceland (the company not the country although the latter's wine might be interesting) along with our ham joint and my bread pudding and ice cream. Mrs Y is not a great one for eating puds. She just makes them for me to guzzle. If I was a young 21st Century husband I'd have a lot to learn on the domestic front.
 
Mrs. Yokel is wise, puddings are heavy and the results sit on the hips and waistline. A delicate desert however is something to savour like the chocolate and orange Christmas log I have saved for a certain day next weekend!
 
I'm with Mrs Yokel on this one, I don't really do desserts either.

When we're on holiday and Mrs F and the kids request the dessert menu they know by now that I'll be having a Metaxa/Hierbas/Brandy/Ouzo/Whisky/Port/Raki/Schnapps/Vodka*, far better for the digestive system.

That said it's not totally unheard of for me to indulge in a piece of hot chocolate fudge cake with vanilla ice cream, these occasions are very few and far between though.

*Delete as appropriate depending on where we happen to be holidaying
 
I do not understand how but my bottle of Malbec has mates and has become two bottles. I found a bottle I did not realise I had, in a cupboard.
 
If you haven't tried it then the Salted Caramel version of Baileys is rather moreish.

Mrs F absolutely loves it, I think she has a bottle of the Orange Truffle Baileys too.

Can't stand the stuff personally but each to thier own.


Working tomorrow and don't usually drink the night before but I am very tempted to indulge in a drop of Port.

My first ever taste of Mexican wine I believe....... It's okay but not quite up to the standardof a decent Malbec.......in my opinion.
 
After letting those medications to metabolize from my body I had my first glug of Malbec wine and WOW! After the initial shock, I found it to be tasty and with an unexpectedly robust nudge. Is this what the fuss was about?

I give it 12 out of 10, another bottle please?
It's funny how tastes vary - I'm not so keen on Malbec. Then again I'm not keen on gravy or coffee so I'm probably the odd one. Although I'm right-handed for most things I always batted left-handed when I played cricket.

Although I do drink other varieties Malbec has been my red wine of choice for a long time. I have a bottle of Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec for tonight which I must remember to get up to temperature.
