Hey Posse. Today I want to share two new boozy bevies I’ve helped create. One with the barman on the Ghan train trip, Dillon. The other with Jin for dinner the other night. Now they may not be new to the world but they certainly were new to us and they have become a bit of a thing around here. If you aren’t a boozer then todays post will probably bore you to tears BUT I’m not much of a drinker these days and I am loving these two really simple, delicious draughts. Sometimes a celebration feels sealed by the imbibing of booze, here are two handy recipes that will get you through every time.
Just to be clear, Jin loves a drink. He handles it really well and is a very happy, loving boozer. His family are the hardest drinking people I’ve met outside of club land. Most nights he’ll have something and if we eat together there will usually be wine, soju or spiritous cocktails. I’ll have a glass of whatever he’s having and then either water or a coffee.

This one is named because Jin & I had it with ribs the night we invented it. It’s bright, sweet and delicious. Would be a perfect summer patio or BarBQ drink. It also worked mid winter here in Sydney with us rugged up, eating dinner and watching the football together.
We build this drink. Ice, 1/2 nip Scotch Whisky, Full nip Vodka, Peach Soda to taste. Here are the exact products we used but anything in a similar vein will do.
Dillon was one of the reasons our 2021 Ghan Railway trip from Darwin to Adelaide was so wonderful. He was friendly, fun and full of joie de vivre. Pleasant to the eye as well.
Again we build this drink. Ice, 1/2 nip Grand Marnier, Full nip Kahlua, Milk to taste. Some people like a dash of milk but I like mine in a tall glass and filled.
Not a very fragrant post but boozy bevies do taste delicious. Taste is so close to smell they’re practically the same. Musette talks about Boozy Perfumes sometimes, in case you missed the fragrant part of today.
