re: cocktail failure
@azure Yeah, I do have an all-metal one which I decided not to use for no good reason—I think I'll be going back to it for the foreseeable future. :) The good news is that I just managed to finally separate the glass and metal without denting/breaking either one. (I use that pint glass as my mixing glass for stirred drinks, so I'm mostly happy I didn't have to replace it—the "mostly" in that if I had, I'd have looked for a prettier old school speakeasy-ish one.)
I accidentally boosted that post about mild cheddar, but then thought, "yes, that take is correct" and let it stand #noxp
@azure sounds neat! One of the ones in our flights was a dry blueberry mead. But still Apple, not maple. :)
