    What am I drinking?

    Well,
    • It's grain was brought off the still at very high proof
    • It has less than 9.09% non-grain alcohol additives after distillation
    • It's aged in charred white oak barrels (not necessarily unused)
    • It states "distilled by Joseph E. Seagram & Sons"


    Sounding pretty much like a Canadian Whisky?
    Nope. It's.....










    Seagram's Extra Dry Gin of Lawrenceburg, Indiana

    Rughi, Seagram's is the gin I pick, too, when I am not buying British gin.

    I'm not sure it's so great, but the barrel aging (3 whole months!) is at least comforting to a whiskey drinker trying to find familiar ground in a field of fancy, herbed-up GNS.

    Unfortunately, Mrs. Rughi put me on notice that I'd better quit fooling around with more cheap or pricey bottles and get Gilbeys, like she likes. It's not about about cost or variety it's about the junipers!

    Seagram's was ok for a G & T. That was over 40 yrs ago...do they still make it? Back then I always wondered why it was yellow-green. Probably made from excess GNS from the blended days.

    Beefeater was always my favorite..distinct taste. Regular Bombay is also good.

    Nice! The possibilities for mixed drinks expands quickly:

    • Bump in the road

    • Bumpy ride
    • Bumpy landing
    • Bumpy night
    • Bump of direction (for while you closet D&Ders roll a d20)

    We used to play Fri. Sat. night and then Sun afternoon and I used to kick butt. I was a Fighter / Cleric with awesome powers. I could just touch you and kill you. Also owned my own Kingdom.

    Good ol' Bumpy!

    Okay, I'll start:

    Bump on the Head
    A drink that harkens to low doorways, uneven pavement, and that party you should have left an hour earlier.

    • 1 jigger "Bumpy" (Seagram's Extra Dry Gin)
    • 1/2 small tomato
    • 1 sprig of Basil
    • 7 peppercorns
    • Splash of tomato juice
    • Ice


    Build in an old fashioned glass:
    • Layer basil over tomato in glass, sprinkle peppercorns on top
    • Muddle vigorously, cracking peppercorns
    • Add Bumpy and ice
    • Splash with tomato juice
    • Garnish with basil
