    Perfect is the enemy of good...

    So Voltaire was right; or the Italian he was quoting was right.
    It's hot in Boston today. Like, 89 hot. Weeding and other garden/yard stuff, looking forward to my first shot at Clint Cantwell's Miso Wings, marinating since last night.
    And, a Gin and Tonic. Perfect weather for it. And me, well, it's gotta be perfect; all the ingredients cold. The Bully Boy Estate Gin is in the fridge. Rats, the tonic is not. So into the freezer with the Fever Tree tonic.

        I would say you fell a bit short of perfection.

          Okay, I laughed way too hard at that.

        I have learned to place any glass bottles I place in the freezer in another container just in case the liquid in said bottle makes a run for it. (But it was a hard lesson to learn )

          Do that almost every time I speed cool a bottle or can. The worst is the wife says "don't forget you have a bottle in the freezer" of course I just say yah yah I won't. An then an couple hours later I am cleaning the freezer.

            Don’t forget the “told-ya-so” look while you are scrapping away

            Wings? Those wings. Unlike the tonic, they were indeed perfect, and I ate 'em before I could think to snap a picture.

          Oh but I feel your pain. But at least it was not Beefeater's London Dry Gin.

            Middle of the night one evening I hear an odd “phoomp” sound... I went downstairs check it out. Finding nothing amiss I went back up to bed. On returning home from work I went to get some ice from the freezer. It was FULL of “snow!”
            “What the...?” Turns out a can of 7-Up that I put in to speed chill was forgotten...it blew the top right off...and covered everything with a snow-like coating. LOL

            Did the same with a bottle of wine...and managed to push the cork out. Derp

              Is that how you make 7-up yours?
              I wonder if that would work for PBR?

              bbqLuv Not sure about PBR, but my father went to get ice once for my mother and “flooded” a small glass... Seems he forgot a Mr. Bones Speed-Chillin’™️ beer and it got caught by the ice dispenser helical...and burst...and poured out the shoot. LOL
