Yes I use a jigger. I'm a very precise drunk... :rotflmao:

For several reasons: The tonic syrup goes in at half ounce per drink. Keeps the carbs down along with providing a higher quinine level. If I've had a rotten day and am trying to get lit faster I use a full 2 oz. of 94 proof gin rather than a shot. The New Amsterdam 94 proof gin pictured is my new rail gin. Packs a wallop for a reasonable price. Beefeater suddenly dropped their alcohol content to 88 proof. Thanks for playin'. If someone thinks they're doing me a huge favor and gives me a bottle of some weak tit 80 proof Seagrams or some such stuff, that goes in at about 1.8 oz. anyway. Combine the tonic syrup & gin, add 6 ice cubes, a wedge of lime, squeeze it if desired (I desire) dump in 5 oz. of club soda, stir and voila! The magic elixir. The same every time. Few drinks suck worse than a burnt gin and tonic. :bonk: Ordering one in a bar or restaurant is like playing Russian roulette. The gals at The Willows always make a good TNT.  :happy1:

I never thought to use tonic syrup.  What kind do you use?

And what do you mean by nothing worse than a burnt G&T?

I use Jack Rudy's Classic tonic syrup. A friend gave me a bottle several years back when it was still called Small Batch Tonic. I was hooked. Buy it by the case now. Let's the flavor of the gin express itself and it's not so sweet. 5 carbs. Wife likes the boxes for hauling around vases for decorating weddings. They also make an extra bitter tonic syrup that reputedly is more like what the Brit's use in their G&T's. I'd like to try a bottle just to see how it tastes. Might have to splurge & buy a bottle of Plymouth Navy Strength gin to go with it if I do. 

A few ways to burn them: Too much ice leaving not enough room for tonic. Too much gin period. Someone was trying to be nice to me & ordered me a double one time. They dumped in twice the gin but not twice the amount of tonic. Ick. If I want to taste nearly straight gin, I'll order a martini.

Ya knew I had to do it: Mrs. Cheviot gone so there needed to be some BBQ'd chicky thighs on the Weber indirect. Not that I have anything against breasts mind you, thighs were on sale... :sleazy: Note who is keeping a close eye on events in case I should clumsily drop something on the floor. Not possible with my cat-like reflexes... :shocked:

Dude, every post you make now says Mrs. Cheviot is gone or away.
Starting to think she's buried in the basement, just so you can cook what you want?  :scratch:   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Geez, now you mention it, maybe I oughta check!  :scratch:

Think the BBQ sauce was some Kraft original that was in the fridge. Had some Sweet Baby Ray's in the cupboard but needed to use this up. Worked fine. Had to scarf down one more piece before I decided it was safe to eat.  :happy1:

Perfect boober! Ruby must belong to the same union as your crew.  :happy1: Only a pervert like glenn would think like that. He has no scruples. Maybe I should mail him some...  :shocked:

Center cuts seared then grilled indirect with smokehouse maple seasoning. Mrs. Gerry's tater salad, sunflower salad, Birdseye mixed veggies & Bongards red pepper cheese curds. Gotta make a feed run on Saturday and get some more of those babies. Flew under the radar last nite. Mrs. Cheviot had already eaten so more for me!  :cool:

The harvest gold pattern Corelle Ware is from my Mom. She had the entire set which we kids bought her over a number of years from the local hardware store. When cleaning out her place last fall, rather than see it pieced out, I decided to take it all. Still in really good shape. Doesn't look any different now than when we gave it to her back in the 70's.

Swiss borgers tonite along with a hunk of red onion & onion rings, mixed veggies & cottage. No Pioneer knife but for the onion rings, lotsa KATCHUP! Wth the change in ownership at the meat market, the burger isn't as lean as it was. I notices that making the patties. That's OK but it'll take some getting used to. The burgers shrink more and are more prone to flare ups. It'll be easier for them to be overdone. Doesn't matter. I could burn them to a cinder, have them fall thru the grates, fish them out, put them on a plate and Mrs. Cheviot would still chase me around.  :rolleyes:

Gotta admitt glenn I love charcoal grilled pork steak with a side of apple sauce.

Stopped by the kowalski butcher shop on saturday thinking a nice ribeye would make a great saturday night dinner....I was shocked at the price $35/lb :thumbs: so we settled on chicken legs, guess we're helping to make less of a carbon foot print if we like it or not.

To celebrate my last night of freedom from Mrs. Cheviot for a while I grilled the rib steaks I got yesterday. Not cheap but I was ready for some beef. That and aside from a couple small pieces I sampled while grilling, I didn't get to eat any of the lamb I grilled yesterday... :doah: Used the same marinade though and it worked as well as it did on the lamb. As an added bonus, I found some wild black raspberries by the lilacs when mowing a couple days ago. Forgot about them until this afternoon. The birds found them but hadn't eaten them all yet.  :happy1:
