Step 1: Start

Step 2: Ice

This is, arguably, the most important step in any good drink. The ice, yes the ice. Starting with the highest quality ice possible is essential, and the difference between a good and great cocktail.  

It doesn't have to be shaped in Titanic and iceberg shapes, but it does help. Some will forgive a taste of chlorine if it's decorative.

I get a very reasonable drop of Grant's from Trader Joe's for USD$11.99. I think this price is restricted to California. As when I was in Boston earlier this year is was 30 bucks !? and TJ's didn't even have it.


Step 4:

Just one little, minor, niggle - Grants (full name Grants Standfast, at least here in UK) isn't Whiskey . . . . . . it's Whisky! - Scottish Malt, as opposed to American Rye.

Otherwise it's a nice 'ible and a handy tip - Thanks ;)

the spelling has nothing to do with whats in the mash. the government that regulates the labels does the spelling.

Whiskey, is also a generic term covering all spirits distilled for a mash grain.
Hi Jack - it was just a little leg-pull about "American-English" spelling, and our (much superior) Malt Whisky as made in Scotland ;-)

But does a bottle of Grant's really have "whiskEy" on the label if they are exporting to USA?

I agree, that Webster jury has I lot to answer for. I'm off to trader jo's later on for a wee dram. I'll check. I'm off to nz on tuseday, I will have a look there to.

Check out Trader VIC's - If it's still going!
