What's Everybody Drinking? No Tanks Edition.

What's Everybody Drinking? No Tanks Edition.

We had martinis with Death’s Door Gin from Wisconsin, because no way we could drink the Plymouth Navy Strength on the day we celebrate our independence from English tyranny. Blue cheese stuffed olives and Vya extra dry vermouth.

Some pan fried sockeye salmon, the first caprese salad of the year (tomatoes weren’t all that great) and a good Oregon Pinot.

Maybe some Etude Alambic Brandy...

2018 Nebula Awards

2018 Nebula Awards

The 2018 Nebulas were awarded May 19th. I am a little disappointed that io9 didn’t cover this, but at this point I am not surprised.

Some of my favorites won including Mary Robinette Kowal’s The Calculating Stars for Best Novel. Blackfish City by Sam J Miller may have been a little better, but I am not at all upset becasue Kowal’s book was great. I really liked Gods, Monsters, and the Lucky...

How to make $95 for 50 hours hard labor.

How to make $95 for 50 hours hard labor.

This is a reasonable approximation of my basement. It would have been worse if there weren’t 300 books on my kindle. We will be moving in the next year or so and will not have room to store all my books, so I needed to get rid of them.

The inventory was approximately:

1500 mass market paperbacks. Almost all of them SF. Almost nothing less than 5 years old because that is when I got a Kindle.
300...

Back from Qwglhm

Back from Qwglhm

Not quite. Qwglhm is supposedly in the Outer Hebrides and we went to Islay and Jura this time, which are in the Inner Hebrides. But the accent isn’t any easier to understand and sheep are the only source of traffic jams.

We went to every distillery on Islay and Jura.

Most of them are on the coast because that was the easiest way to get supplies and ship product.Caol IlaThere was no GPS. That’s...

Where are you, right now? somewhere warm, safe, next to someone you love? Now, what if all that was gone and the only thing you could do is survive? You would, right? You’d try.

What a Time to be Alive

What a Time to be Alive

I was expecting a delivery tomorrow, but Amazon says it is coming today. It is Sunday, but Amazon delivers on Sunday. I don’t want it to sit out since it is snowing (in mid April in Chicago FFS, but that is another post) so I just checked and Amazon tells me “the driver is six stops away” with a map that actually shows me roughly where he is.

This is why William Gibson stopped writing science...

Today's Google Doodle is totally not about Khan.

It is John Harrison’s 325th birthday and Google is honoring him. JJ Abrams has no comment on the matter.

What's Everybody Drinking?  St Patrick's Day Edition.

I’m not real big on Irish Whisky or Guinness. If you are, great! Like what you like!

But I had a Manhattan

With Larceny bourbon

And then a Robert the Bruce Strong Scottish Ale from just over the border in Indiana.

With our oven fried Panko crusted Rockfish

Although I sauteed the spinach. It was delicious. How are the rest of you doing tonight?

We are watching Victoria, Season 2. Which is at...

Just back from a Scotland whisky vacation. Need to dry out. This seemed appropriate.

A Martini with local gin. Very nice.

Also had some nice beers with lunch today at Piece Pizzeria. They brew their own.

We have leftovers which will be heated up via the stovetop pan method . It really is the best way to go.

How about you?

I had a sazerac.

What's Everybody Drinking? Master Post.

Xeos has shamed me.

Made with Woodford Reserve Rye.

Then some Freedom Hill 2012 Pinot Noir

With grilled salmon and roasted purple cauliflower. Interesting fact: Mrs Lizardo doesn’t like white cauliflower, but loves it if it is orange, green, or (especially) purple.

Had a Negroni . Used St George Dry Rye Gin which is really the best choice for a Negroni.

Although I used Antica Carpano vermouth and I served it up. Otherwise, just like the pic.

We have a lot of citrus left over from our barbecue last weekend when we ended up drinking Sazeracs and didn’t touch the limes or oranges, so we had Gimlets yesterday (always makes me remember Serenada) and I stuffed...

By request . Don’t even bother asking if there is parent sanctioned, underage drinking in our Nation’s Capitol on this fine eve of her 239th birthday (the nation’s birthday, not the precocious minor). You don’t want to know.

I’m working the weekend (but not on call tonight!) and too tired to build a mixed drink, so I had a little Four Roses Cask Strength.

A very little since it is 62.5% ABV. Be...

Ask me anything about cancer

Ama
Ask me anything about cancer


It was really hard to find a reasonable picture to go with this post.

I have been a practicing oncologist for 16 years. 6 years training before that, three in internal medicine, three in hematology and oncology. I haven’t seen it all, but I’ve seen an awful lot of it.

I also like to cook and drink. I irregularly host a thread about drinking around these parts, you may have seen it.

So ask me...

What's everybody drinking (and eating)

Livin’ the life edition.

I sat all day in a hotel ballroom catching up on the latest (mostly not so new) and greatest (mostly not so great) in oncology. More of the same tomorrow.

I had some Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel.

I stopped on the way home for delicious sandwiches and side salads from Pastoral. A Cali-Chevre; a Blue, Pig, and Fig; and some Potato salad and Orzo salad. Not cheap, but...

No space whisky for me. Sounded vile anyway.

I’m having a Manhattan .

Using up the last of my Jefferson’s

And the last of my Carpano Antico

And Bittercube orange and cherry bitters

This just trotted through my yard.

I’ve seen them at dawn, and I’ve seen yellow eyes reflected at night, but I have never seen one in broad daylight like this.

She didn’t seem to care when we went outside onto the deck to look at her or that the dog was barking in the house.

Pretty sure the dog is safe from a single coyote. He is old and doesn’t move so fast anymore, but he still outweighs a...

What's Everybody Drinking

I had a Martian Martini .

I used Vya extra dry vermouth which was good.

And St George Terroir. Which was not. At least in this application. I should have learned today: the right tool for the right job.

Don’t get me wrong. It is perfectly fine in a gimlet. But too sweet and floral for a Martian Martini. I prefer the Botanivore if you want to make a Martian Martini with a St George product....
