re: Where to get large octopus in BR - lilwineman on 6/15/17 at 10:48 pm
From what I've been told when cooking octopus (the Galician way of Spain is my favorite), you buy the whole animal and bring seasoned water to a boil. Add peppercorns, lemon, maybe some bay leaf or herbs of your choice. Take the product (preferably fresh as possible) and temper it by dipping it a fe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: ESPN reporting Marvin Wilson to FSU - lilwineman on 1/31/17 at 11:11 pm
Tweeted in the last 30 minutes he is starting to have second thoughts. Wonder if he notified FSU about his decision and they are leaking it. Fam could've got to him and has him reconsidering everything due to proximity...it's not over til he signs, although it's not looking good......

re: Let's talk about bitters - lilwineman on 8/7/16 at 4:12 pm
Old fashioneds should use angostura or a similar aromatic bitters from any of the other companies (Fee, Bittermans, bitter truth, etc)...a Sazerac should only ever be Peychauds. I've used some Molé bitters before to make a twist on it with an anejo tequila base, Amber agave nectar, and flamed or...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: I have a terrible beer confession to make. - lilwineman on 7/10/16 at 9:48 am
I can't disagree with you. If I take the low road to something like hooters and they're doing day fresh ice cold Budweiser, I usually can't resist it. It's not like their selection of microbrews is worth s crap anyways, but that beer doesn't have a very clean appeal when it's that fresh....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Ruffino's Old Fashioned - lilwineman on 7/9/16 at 11:32 am
Well brand might actually be a premium. That being said, that well brand better be at least something of high merit for $12.50. The drink is not intensive, a cherry, slice of orange, and simple syrup are cheap ingredients. Your only real cost involved is the whiskey. $8-9 is pretty standard for a pr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - lilwineman on 7/2/16 at 1:40 pm
It's available for distribution. All you should have to do is send a request to your retailer to special order it. They do a single block selection that sees some oak aging that's delicious as well. Don't take their Pinot noir for granted either....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - lilwineman on 7/2/16 at 9:22 am
Vistajay is on the money. Cloudy Bay was great a decade ago and their winemakers left to start Dog Point. Hands down my favorite overall from NZ. Outside of that, Craggy Range is really nice, coming from the southern tip of the north island in Martinborough. This provides a slightly warmer environme...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Any good recipes for seal meat? - lilwineman on 6/26/16 at 5:08 pm
Everything I'm reading says due to the volatility, it's best to serve the meat fresh. It's super fatty and has a high oil content. The loin can be served roasted or sauteed to medium rare. The flippers can be treated like pork shoulder....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
