I hope that everyone is doing well out there with whatever learning path you chose for your child this year. I am not regretting my choice to send the kids back to their respective schools, but it is sure is stressful while they are gone.

It doesn’t help that we were recently heckled by someone after we left the dentist’s office wearing our masks. I just ignored them because I had Alex with me, and thankfully she didn’t notice because she was in the middle of telling me a long, involved story.

But at least we still have our recipe tests. And our recipe tests contain alcohol.

This guy also had a tough week at work, so we are ready for these drinks!

“This is really good. It reminds me of a Brandy Old-Fashioned, without the cherry flavor.”

The Verdict: Really Good

From The Tasting Notes –

This is a good combination. The extras take the burn out of the brandy and make it very drinkable without being too sweet. One of the patrons over on our Patreon page pointed out that the green color reminds them of the color they dye the river on St. Paddy’s day, which I think is just perfect.
