Agree! But we found some years ago that when mixed with tonic - you can get away without the expense of Bombay. Gilby's has worked almost as well, or maybe it's just... after that 1st one ;-)

----------------------------

Here is another great summer drink - the hotter the day the better it tastes because it is not heavy.

Cinzano (pronounced Chinzano in Italia) and tonic. Cinzano (Rosso) is a sweet, red vermuth wine the Italians mix half and half with tonic water, served over ice, if a slice of lemon or lime is available, that too, but not required. I think you will want to drink more than one of these.
Cinzano is available in liquor stores and sometimes even grocery stores in MD & VA

Taste is a funny thing isn't it ?
Yep, but like I said, I'm one of those "I tastes pretty good to me" kinda guys, and the only liquor I care to drink straight is scotch or bourbon. The rest of it is all for mixed drinks.

Maybe peaty isn't the right word but it is the one that comes to mind thinking of Laph. I think of it as a scotch to work up to. I feel like if you offered one to a newbie they might never drink scotch again, where as something like Glenlivet, 'fiddich, or Glen Moray may peak their interest.

I don't really love Vodka but will drink it and tequila is fine so long as its in a margarita. About the only thing I can think of that I really dislike is Crown Royal. Can't stand it for some reason.

As for rum based libations on the boat, I keep Goslings and Mt. Gay provisoned aboard. For Dark and Stormy's, I only use Barrits (one of the two "official" ingredients) or the Gosslings brand ginger beer which tastes just like Barrits but can usually be found wherever you can find Black Seal.

I use the Mt. Gay for everything else which for me is usually a Cuba Libre just because I'm lazy. If I'm inspired, I'll do Pain Killers using Mt. Gay. I stayed with Pussers as long as I could, but its useless for anything but Pain Killers so I now use something more versatile.

I also like burboun and will sometimes buy a bottle of Jack Black, Makers Mark or Wild Turkey. Usually these are sipped with ice, but sometimes I'll do a Jack and Ginger.

PaulinVictoria Classic margarita:
1 part fresh squeezed lime juice
2 parts triple sec (or cointreau if you're feeling flush)
4 parts good tequila

Shake over ice, strain into glass (rimmed with salt if you're into that, but I prefer it without as no need to cover the flavours as you do with a pre-mix crap)

slokaj pineapple rum, OJ and a splash of cranberry
