    Quarantinis Ultra Lazy Edition: Highballs

    The Highball is the ultimate lazy cocktail. By definition, it should only be two ingredients. Pat's not even sure it deserves its own episode.

    Mix along at home with the following cocktail ingredients:
    Akashi Ume Plum Flavored Whisky Fever Tree Club Soda Glenmorangie Extremely Rare 18 Year Old Ransom Old Tom Gin Tanqueray London Dry Gin Luxardo Sangue Morlacco  Hendrick's Gin Fever Tree Tonic Water Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water Top Note Classic Tonic Water El Doado Single Barrel Binny's Handpicked

Mouth Watering

Every time I listen to one of these podcasts I want to go buy and try everything they are talking about. I have already bought some wine after hearing several podcasts. Listen and start your imagination.

Great podcast

Great job on the ice episode and the New Orleans cocktails one. I make clear ice at home in an igloo cooler using directional cooling and make rough edged cubes and I love the way the look. I realize they might melt faster but it makes an interesting looking old fashioned until it starts to melts the sides smooth.

If you ever want to have some customers come for an episode, I’d love to hang and taste some bourbons with you all or have Greg make me some cocktails! 😉

Interesting and informative

I really enjoy the beer- and liquor-focused podcasts. I learn a ton and have even been inspired to try some new libations. I’d love to see some more episodes highlighting Chicago-area breweries. We have some great breweries here in Chicagoland from Scorched Earth in Algonquin to Two Brothers in Warrenville and Church Street Brewing in Itasca and dozens of breweries I’ve yet to discover.
