So… What are we drinking tonight?
This is my favourite for this evening
What is yours?
We are drinking that now
A selection over a couple of nights lately:
G&T (No 3 and Fever Tree), slice of orange
Old Fashioned (Bookers bourbon, bitters, hint of sugar syrup, orange slice in well-stirred ice)
Brewdog Punk IPA ( it’s OK for an occasional pint - but I’m not a fan of ‘craft’ beer on the whole. Most are pretty bad imho)
Out here in the Alpujarras, it’s possible to find just one quality cider on the shelf amongst all the Magners and Bulmers and the like.
Maredsous has a special place in my heart.
Many years ago we went on summer holiday to a small town in the Ardennes. My dad and I did a tour by car in the evening to check out the environment. We found a monastery and there was an advertisement poster for an organ concert that night. We went back to the holiday house and my father had a chat with my mother that he was going to the organ concert. My wife didn’t want me to go, but I did go.
Lucky me. The organist of that night was Olivier Latry - maybe the best organist currently alive - in the very abbey of Maredsous. After an hour in a packed chapel, we thought the concert was finished. Everybody went outside. It apparently was the break and everybody got a pint of Maredsous poured by monks.
What a night.
A large dram of this, which was my father in law’s favourite. Sadly he passed away this morning so here is a toast to Ian, one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting
My condolences, KayPeeJay. I shall ask my dealer if he has the same.
