A G&T Tasting

20140730-054439.jpg Gin will replace vino for this Wine Wednesday post. Not a bad swap if you are a gin fan. Tastings can be a fun way to start a gathering or party. A few weeks ago out on the island we did a tasting with dear friends and it was a fun thing to kick off a Sunday afternoon of relaxing, sharing stories and dining. Just put out a few different bottles of gin. We thought we would also add a variety of tonic options too, as they can really change the taste of a gin & tonic. Next lime and cucumber slices. I started on a cucumber kick in the last year with gin, particularly Hendrick’s, as the flavor of the cuc really enhances the flavor of the drink. Next a big bucket of ice and glasses and off you go. You can make them for your guests, or it be a self-serve station. Interesting to mix & match gin and tonic options. Watch the conversations and stories begin to flow.

I am up early and flying to Las Vegas this morning. Yes, you read that right. Las Vegas. Can’t really think of a place I am less suited for, but the city is now home to one of the largest furniture markets in the states. They have added a gifts & decorative accessories show to the mix, so I thought I would check it out. Actually, I am really excited for a few days of focused buying for Watson Kennedy. So off I go. Will post about it all in the coming days. Oh, and it is only supposed to be 106 degrees today. I think I see a G&T in my future…

  1. When you’re in NY, try Blue Line gin. Distilled in Lake Placid, available for sale only in NY state. Infused with pine tips and yummy.

  2. Have fun at the furniture convention.

    And if you like a good gin, I highly recommend Anchor Steam’s Junipero. You can actually taste the juniper berries:).

  3. What could be more glorious than a G & T buffet?
