Drinkalongathon 2012 - sherry and Laphroaig
Time for a change of pace. To forget, for a while, about food. While we remember those poor starving kids in Africa. That's why I'm moving on to cocktails. Is sherry and whisky a cocktail? Close enough for me.
They age whisky in sherry barrels. So whisky and sherry must go well with whisky, musn't it? Let's give it a try. Mmmm.... yes, yes, yes. Just don't underdo the Laphroaig. 80 - 20 whisky to sherry is my advice. Otherwise that funny wine flavour overwhelms the getting-you-pissedness of the whisky. What I think is its best feature.
Do you have your string ready? This is really important. Get your string ready. And your boiled egg.
