I seem to be acquiring alcohol at a faster rate than I'm actually trying it... Will have to work on that. Today I found St. Germain, Luxardo maraschino, and picked up a bottle of Plymouth gin to compare to the Bombay Sapphire (all found at Cambridge Wine and Spirits, neé Mall Discount Liquors). Later on I went to China Fair and found a Boston shaker (metal bit only) for $4... Tim has been wanting to pick one up, as he's all about the tools. Last week I found a hand-cranked ice crusher for him; me, I'm content to make do with basics! I did order a reproduction Absinthe spoon (for reference; I am considering making sterling versions with my own modern designs for sale), which is about as specific as I've gone in the bar-tool world.
Hrm, I've managed to stay up past the threshold to do some more work on my dress, and I'm almost thinking it's too late to enjoy a drink. Hmm, almost...!
