Shaken or Stirred

Well another week has gone by, and another craving for a drink has come to the front. This time it was the good ol' martini.
Extra dirty please. Gotta love some olive juice, mmmm.

Just another two weeks left in my rotation up here. Hardly anything at all!

I've been mulling over the possibility of getting some proper stemware when i'm out, but it seems a little silly to get it now, just a couple of months before we move. I may just have to drink my martini out of a tumbler. I'm quite sure it'll taste fine anyway.

Hopefully soon these posts will have a bit more substance to them. Hard to do anything but muse while i'm in a dry camp.

Shame Shame

Well, I am a wee bit ashamed. I really haven't kept this up at all. Hrm. Maybe I should make it more of a resolution to try to update.

Anywho, it is field season once again. I am up at a different camp, no longer on the mine site. Isolation gives me plenty of time to think/daydream about drinks that I wish I could be having, and that is the truth.

Before I came up to the field the last time, I tried a new scotch. This scotch was much different than the ones I had tried before, a better smoke/peat taste. Needless to say, I enjoyed it immensely. Of course, now that I can't have any, I am craving it.

It was this:
Bowmore 12 yr. A scotch from the Islay region.

This has me wondering if i'd enjoy some of the other more smokey brews as well. I will have to experiment when i'm out!

The other problem is that I have a countertop full of booze, and the Mrs. and I will be moving in September. This should motivate me to try some new cocktails to use up some of the excess before we get possession of our house.

That's all for now!
