Aloe Vera Beauty drink?

First of all my apologies. I haven't posted a lot. It is a bit tricky for the moment, as I am with my own mobile devices just via 3G online. The hotel doesn't have free wifi (I am just online with the company PC and that means no personal stuff...) and we are living in a completely new building- landbased telecommunication will (hopefully) set up in the next days.

I have though already written several posts offline- some quite controversial and will post them soon...

Back to the besuty drink. I have picked up this in one normal hypermarket. The brand is Thai Choice, a producer which usually offers all sorts off Asian ingredients from - from a like "alemongrass puree" to z like "zoya sauce". Sorry it is too late for doing better jokes
...

Anyway - I chilled it nicely, popped it open (which was harder than expected) and tasted it.

NOSE:
Faint honey smell - with the slightest greenush vegetal hint.

TONGUE:
Oh wow, sweet. Very sweet. Simple syrup sweet! It taste like simple syrup/agave syrup with a dash of honey... amost no acidity...

MOUTHFEEL:
Besides of the overwhelming mouthcoaing sweetness, you have tiny bits of aloe vera gel. Which impeoves the overal impression - but not enough.

VERDICT:
I am not sure, why the producer calls this beauty drink. Maybe due to cultural differences - maybe the producer thinks fat people = beautiful?
Or do they think, that aloe vera makes evetything beautiful? Think coke with aloe = beauty-coke or pork fat with aloe = beauty lard?
Anyway - I usually like sweet things, but this drink is even for me unbearable! And uninteresting!

If you really want to use aloe, buy the gel and mix it yourself... just got a great idea: beauty-g&t!

How to use citric acid - and why you might not want to use it anyway!

To be honest, I shied away of this topic, because I think, people can misinterpret this - big time.


I don't want to be part of the problem - I want to be part of the solution! But when Chris, over at A Bar Above discussed this subject- I literally could not resist to join into "the discussion".

Here is the video:





I - however take a bit slower approach than Chris.
What is citric acid?
Chemical Compound
Citric acid is a weak organic acid with the formula C6H8O7. It is a natural preservative/conservative and is also used to add an acidic or sour taste to foods and drinks.

Molar Mass: 192.124 g/mol
Melting Point: 153C
Density: 1.66 g/cm3
Boiling point: 175C
Soluble in: Water
Why is it controversial?
In my "mixology world" it is controversial, as citric acid is the stuff, which makes the nightmarish sour mix [preferably in powder form] sour. Yeah - citric acid is the main ingredient in one of the most controversial [and in the modern craft bartending wor…

The "perfect" Martini Extra Dry Cocktail

The Martini cocktail is one of the most disputed drink of all times - and one of the drink, which dramatically changed through the times - I would say, not to its disadvantage.

I shied from this topic a long time. It is just a mammoth of a topic with a lot of controversy. But what has to be done, has to be done!

Lets first of all understand, about what we are talking about:

We talking about the original Martini cocktail - which is gin based!
We are also touching the topic of Vodka Martinis - and maybe throw some understanding of the Vesper Martini in it.






We are not talking about things, which have only the glass in common to this substantial cocktail:

The "perfect" Whiskey Sour

After the high popularity of my Mojito post - as well as the also well liked post about the Diablo, I would like to highlight here, another bar staple: The humble Whiskey Sour.

Also: if you can make a proper Whiskey Sour, you can do a lot of other Sours - basically you can take any distillate and make a Sour out of it...

I call it the "perfect" Whiskey Sour to be obviously a bit provocative - but also, as you get often a less than perfect drink, when you are ordering one.

So what are the ingredients of a Whiskey Sour?

American Whiskey [yes - I say it: definitely no Scotch, also for sure no Canadian, no Irish and obviously no Japanese]Truth has to be told - there is definitely something like an adequate Scotch Sour. But it should simply not be called Whiskey Sour, as the character is totally different.
