Since my birthday I’ve tried red wine, white wine, sake, beer, ale, hard liquor, mixed drinks up and down the WALL its been only 1 month! HAH!
So lets start a thread here… post your favorite drinks, top 5.
- Momokawa pearl - served HOT!
milky, sharp, flavorful coconut taste, 19.7% alcohol, burns on the way down, DAMN GOOD STUFF! Not too dry, not nasty, wonderful taste. Great with a good sushi dish or salmon and a japanese dish. Best sake i have had yet.
- Momokawa diamond - served COLD
sweeter taste, little bit of a mineral water hint, 14.5% alcohol, still strong, still sharp, not as much of an alcoholic feel as the pearl but much sweeter and very good with sushi and a rice dish, goes great with something that has seaweed (which is why sushi is perfect to go with it with a good dish as well).
- Dead guy ale (Rogue brewery) - Served cold as you can get it
I prefer to chill it in the fridge, pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes and then serve it, chill it in the freezer too long and it’ll explode (haven’t exploded a dead guy ale, but did it a few times to canned beer), but anyway… get it cold, serve it with as little head as possible, using a good coaster a full bottle will give you a good 3 or 4 glasses of it. Nice smooth taste, nice hoppy feel to it, but not really all that bitter, very smooth, silky, nice taste. Its awesome.
Blonde Bombshell (cascade lake brewery in oregon) - Light beer, very very fresh (especially on tap), good taste, most light beers taste like water, this has a really nice smooth taste, definitely tastes like a full tasting beer, just without the crazy insane amount of hops that most beers have. Light, refreshing, and I could slurp down the pints they serve at the brewery all day, good stuff!
Red Stripe - Just cold…
Pretty good, not too thick, not too thin, just right, a bit bitter, nice aftertaste, good stuff. Can’t say much else.
