    Cool Wine recco from Waitrose!

    Now, if you want to taste a 'grown up' Beaujolais, with a bit more body, and that develops those fruity flavours even further, then Waitrose currently have a rather lovely example with 25% off (down now to £9.74): https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/produc...-665522-665523



    Louis Jadot is also a top producer, and has an established history for consistently producing quality wines. I've enjoyed many of his wines before, so this should be rather good. Picked up a bottle today, while I was in buying some other bits and pieces, which I'll report on shortly

    Cool More bits from Waitrose...

    Campari Negroni: https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/produc...-535124-535125

    Gorgeous if you love a genuine Negroni cocktail, but don't have time!



    Two now for vermouth fans, particularly if you want to make up your own Negroni cocktail, this is the stuff to use, as it's just stunning [says it's out of stock, but is definitely available in store]: https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/produc...-524201-524202



    And a Spanish Vermouth, Lustau Vermut-Rojo: https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/produc...-601014-601015



    Not had this before but fancied giving it a go!

    Interesting, mate. Didn't think it'd be your thing at all! We love it - quite an Italian thing

    Yeah, that was probably my favourite. Just some bits we nabbed quickly from Asda, after picking Del up from work!

    Lol - always knew you had class, Granty! We love it (probably our favourite vermouth) and brought a few bottles over in the summer from Italy, where it's about half the price

    It's quite expensive for vermouth I guess, but there are a lot dearer ones. Probably not any better tho.
    I also love sherry. In fact I ordered a small bottle for the festive season, just in case I'm tempted. Harvey's signature 12yr old. Yum

    Nice, although I generally prefer dry sherries, but I could enjoy that one with a nice mince pie... Talking of which I bought some of these Heston ones for over Christmas:

    A little bit different from the usual!
