      Not drinking it yet bc it's a school night. And I've got an early zoom meeting tomorrow.
      But wife sent me to the liquor store for some white claw for her. Was gonna grab a bottle of tequila to make ranch waters this weekend......

      But........

      They had Heaven Hill in stock. Bought the entire stock - BOTH bottles Click image for larger version

        Yeah the "Bottled in Bond" designation is from an old law, late 1800s I think, where the gov't put standards on distilling......

        damn government limiting my freedoms by making sure my hooch won't make me blind!

        Ranch waters are great bc it's a lot of no sugar mixer. It's refreshing. You can drink them most of the day and still stay hydrated and get farm work done. Topo Chico is shipped pretty far. They have distribution deal with Walmart, so you might check there.
        If not, club soda would be a great substitute. OR if you have a soda stream, make club soda with 1.5-2x the carbonation.

        A white claw / tequila drink might be VERY tasty.... but would not be a ranch water.

        La Croix would also work.

        I love all those lawn-mowin' beers on a hot day. Hamm's is my fave for the price but PBR & High Life come in the mix too.

          Its funny. Back in 1989 I did my first trip to Japan. They had warm coffee single serve drink dispensers on train platforms. Put coins in make selection and out came a warm can of whatever flavor coffee or tea drink you selected. I've never seen anything like this here. Just $tarbuck$ on every corner.

                Just finished dinner and now it's time for a sipper. It's cool today so this might not be much of a deck night. Although if it's between drizzle and cold on the deck or watching the RedSox tonight lose 9 in a row I pick the deck and a sweatshirt.

                  Don't I know. It's tough to watch the games, there doesn't seem to be any electricity without the fans and the ballpark atmosphere during the summer is not there, not to mention they are terrible. I find myself watching shows on Prime or bbq shows on youtube on the stick.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              Placeholder

              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              Placeholder

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
