The Tiki Cocktail revival has been well under way for a few years now, and rum is pretty clearly marked as the up and coming spirit trend. My only problems is I just don’t like my drinks very sweet, and some of these can get really sweet. The spirit itself is already made from sugar for crying out loud. Finally though I found a perfectly simple rum concoction with a enough bite to keep me wanting more – the Ti Punch.
I mentioned recently that Simply Refined would be relocating to Chicago in the fall, but for the next few months we’ll be based in Saratoga Springs, NY. I just moved up yesterday morning, and am living in a hotel in downtown Saratoga with my father until our apartment is ready later in the week.
No, I’m not double-fisting my whisky tonight. I’m quintuple-fisting. As of Monday evening I am officially finished with my undergraduate education and will be graduating next week. So, I decided to treat myself to a little Tuesday night whisky tasting. You’ll be able to read all about it soon on Gentleman’s Gazette, so keep your eyes peeled.
