Well I had a walk in the snow this morning!

We have about eight inches here so lots are digging cars out and so on. Plenty big kids building Snowmen.

And the snow is spreading south.................

Not so much under the "a good night" thread as more under "own up" , I post this confession.

Principally as there have been no posts under wine for two weeks, what has happened to everyone??8o

So to the own up!:rolleyes

Last night we very much enjoyed a bottle of Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose Brut and savoured just spinning it out for a while. it had come as a pressie recently and the donor was toasted appropriately!:eek

Any other own ups guys?? and gals!!:lol

Laurent Perrier Rose. Now you're talking. This is my most favourite bottle of bubbles. I don't understand the reason for spinning it out though. What's wrong with two !:b

Hi Sandy!

Being honest it didn't last long before we scoffed it all.

Some people who read these posts and post themselves can be very pass remarkable where one might say one finished the bottle very quickly!

Huh!!! When you were scoffing your Laurent Perrier Rose, I was drinking Tesco Cava, enlivened by a dash of creme de cassis.

How the other half live...

Love L.P. Rose! Runard just has the edge though (Im not sure if that is the correct spelling?)

We bought all the ingredients for a Singapore Sling which cost a fortune. Tried 2 different recipes but still couldnt get the same taste as the one we had actually in The Long Bar - it was great fun trying though, and will keep on until we get it right! :x
Have tried the official one thats on the web but have since found out that they tend to change it anyway!!
I have been looking for lime juice but can only find lime cordial - Im sure thats not the same - so have used fresh lime juice. Does any one actually do lime juice in a carton?:rolleyes

You can buy lime juice the same as Jif lemon juice but it's not the same as fresh (probably got preservative in it)

I would always use real limes for all cocktails and mixes..lovely clean sharp taste.

Keep on trying

Thanks Debz - used fresh limes. still cant get the flavour the same, I think the recipe uses more gin than they did at the hotel and as I cant stand gin its not working for me! Lifes tough!!

Hey belladonna can I ask a silly question? Why are you making Singapore Slings if you don't like gin??? :\

Does sound as if Ive lost my mind doesnt it?? We stayed in Raffles Hotel in Singapore a couple of months back on the way to a wedding in Australia. Whilst we were there, you just have to have a Singapore Sling in the Long Bar - i had fully intended just to have my photo taken sitting there holding the glass as I knew it had gin in it. But when I tried it - it was absolutely delicious - so was the second one! Couldnt really taste any gin at all. I think its because they make up such a large amount in jugs that they dont really make it as alcoholic as a single drink recipe - but even knowing that, we still cant get it right, and now im going off it at a rate of knots!!! :x I have even e mailed the hotel, but no answer :b

As a lover of Mothers ruin. Belladonna I can't believe you don't enjoy a tipple or two. It's got to be Gordons (Princess margarets favorite Gordon's, jim's , harry's infact anybody's that wasn't watching :lol ) (Whoops their goes my Knighthood) Just don't add that Tonic stuff, that's only good for one think.

Fresh orange, bitter lemon or ice are perfect partners.
Take care.
