re: Let's talk about bitters - lilwineman
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...

re: I have a terrible beer confession to make. - lilwineman
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....

re: Ruffino's Old Fashioned - lilwineman
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...

re: Need advice on some HOT peppers. - lilwineman
I have a friend that dries out her scorpion peppers and makes a seasoning blend for house made biltong. That stuff is amazing. Grab a small pinch like chewing tobacco and enjoy the flavor and numbing heat....

re: Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - lilwineman
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....

re: Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - lilwineman
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...

re: Any good recipes for seal meat? - lilwineman
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....

re: Uchi - Houston : Pics From Last Night - lilwineman
Uchi was the best sushi meal I've had in the city. The chefs are masters of their craft and the omakase was spectacular. That being said, I frequent Kata robata more so and Manibu knows what he is doing. A lot of his fish easily rivals uchi (especially his house prepared unagi and anago), but the co...

re: I just picked up a filet of Copper River Salmon from Rouses - lilwineman
Which species are you getting right now? I'm guessing sockeye at the price which is prime right now. The king salmon at the beginning of the season is hands down my favorite of the three species but typically closer to $40-50lb depending where you buy it....

re: Buying "Sushi" Grade Ahi Tuna - lilwineman
Sushi grade is a classification. There is #1, #2+, and #2 or #3 grade tuna which is a classification of fat content of the meat when a sample is drawn, color, freshness, outside appearance, etc. #1 tuna should be very expensive honestly. I've seen wholesale as high as $28-30 a lb. A lot of sushi res...

re: Champs at the Mall of La - lilwineman
Soooo...where did I say something against your wife? Just curious here. Read over it again and I don't see anything outside of the tip scenario written. And I'm guessing if I should quit when I'm ahead is kinda the same scenario as the casino, walk away when you're winning? :popcorn: ...
