groan.I missed that pun entirely. Which, of course, does not rule out the possibility that some place actually used that for their product name.

The kopparberg sounds interesting. I have a bottle of elderflower (I think) eau de vie which is very good in fizzy lemonade . Using it in a dry cider with a bit of lime sounds interesting.
Woodchuck is all over up here. I will look for the summer release. is this the stuff your buddy bought that you mentioned the other day?

There is noting on the local sites more than you would expect for a hot weekend. Nothing particularly organized and no riots. So far.

J and I started the keto diet on Friday. I'm switching from cider and white wine to red wine on my non-cheat days, because it has significantly less carbs.

Turns out, I actually like it. I had some merlot last night. Can't tell if my tastes have changed, since I never liked it before OR I'm on my way to full-blown alcoholism.

If you a looking for a decent red blend that is not expensive, try Menage a Trois around $8-9.00, sometimes less. It is good . Or take a trek over to East Peoria. Costco's Kirkland house blends, Red Wine, Meritage etc in the $15-20 range are uniformly really good

I agree about Menage a Trois. I also found a good pinot noir at Total Wine for $9.99 called Concannon.

Thanks! I hit up Sam's Club and got a variety. Malbec, Pinot, etc. Nothing over $12, I want to see what I like first. But the crappy Sutter Home merlot at Hooters was pretty good.

Race- Mangos
I had some I bought pre-cut and some whole ones that were starting to go mushy. Actually a fair way into being mushy. I made sherbert using just my food processor, not an ice cream maker. Simple syrup (50/50 water and sugar boiled),a little bit of alcohol(I used Hum which has ginger in it) and a bit more syrup in the second process. It matches the Hagendaz I bought for comparison.

Next up: overripe peaches, I think with some Cream Sherry.

My husband has a subscription to Wine Spectator. They have a column called 25 under $25 that is reliable.However, everyone who reads it runs out and buys the stuff on the list. If you can find teh stuff on there, it is a fun way to try. One or two of the Kendall Jackson's or Turning Leaf's often show up on the list

I forgot about that.
For me personally, i have a psychological thing about having a large quantity available for consumption. I use more, finish it faster. This holds true for things like dish soap which I buy at Cosctco but transfer to a small bottle to use. Figured that out after I saw we were going through large amounts of stuff quickly.
It works for wine for me as well. I can portion out a bottle of wine. With a box,or even a 2 L bottle I keep drinking and drinking.

I suspect places like Sam's Club and Costco have figured this out and factored it into their sales projections.

Sounds good. Mango's are way late this year, not just my tree, but everyone's.
