A Liqueur and Vodka are two very different spirits with different tastes. If you're going to compare liqueur's and vodkas, why leave out Skip Rock Distilling's blackberry and raspberry liqueur from Snohomish, WA?
Wild Roots Vodka is my new favorite vodka. On a hot summer day, a little lemonade and raspberry Wild Roots is so refreshing. Hard to find, but once you get a liquor store to stock it, buy multiple bottles before it runs out!
This Blackberry Liqueur is not a vodka, not sure it was reviewed as a vodka?
This is high proof Berry Liqueur, it's supposed to be sweet, required by TTB regulations.
It has a 98 rating with the Beverage Testing Institute.
Can't wait to try all these tea houses, they sound amazing. My husband and I just went to one- Snake River Tea and it was a delicious and educating experience! We tried kombucha fir the first time and fell in love with their homemade kombucha. We also tried their peach Melba tisane blend iced and it was refreshing and yummy!
Can you find these at the Liquor Store?
It's loose leaf teas for us.
Coffee is SO much better than tea!
I've been meeting clients at Joyful Tea lately, there's free WiFi in Boise International Market & usually a table or two free to have conversation. I'm thrilled! My NP advised I get off the 3cup coffee train, Tea is alkalinizing so better for my system... Thank you for a super kind spot to gather & enjoy tea- ya, who needs sugar- when you have great tea!
I've really enjoyed my stops at Joyful Tea. Terry has been really helpful to this tea noob.
Joyful Tea is absolutely fantastic! My husband & I stop to have dinner at any one of three ethnic restaurants & grab a pot of tea at Joyful Tea. Terry & Karen simply ask what you are having for dinner & they provide a tea to complement your meal.
I agree with everything that Goodmusic71 wrote except the location. JoyfulTea is near the intersection of Franklin and Curtis.
Joyful Tea is just a wonderful experience! Their sole focus is TEA and Terry knows tea and can explain any aspect of it more clearly than anyone I've ever met anywhere. Do yourself a favor and check them out the next time you're over near Franklin and Cole!
'Leaf Teahouse' is nice! Best thing to occupy the space it's in for as long as I can remember.
Antiguo Tequila straight up, Don Julio is a good Tequila also, too good to mix.
I almost bought a bottle of Mexican Moonshine today. I first heard of it in Yelapa, it was called Raicilla years ago but if you happen to be there they know what Raicilla is! I guess they decided to bottle it and make a profit from it!
Amaro Montenegro is also a very nice introduction to amaros. Great bottle too!
Haven't tried Jack Daniel's Winter Jack, yet. Sounds tastily toasty. Thanks.
Personally, I don't care any more about rye content than I do about how each vendor tries to make their label look more "authentic" than the next. Taste is taste, and if a whiskey with less rye than the previous tastes better, then call me the 'anti-rye'.
I enjoy tequila, straight from the neck or mixed sweetly. My father brought me 2 bottles of tequila after a trip to Italy. One was almond flavored, the other had a taste not unlike pomegranate-cherry grenadine, just not as sugary. You stick to straight and only straight and never sway from your path, sir. Leave these delicacies to real connoisseurs who aren't afraid of a little change in their lives. - Not young by anyone's standards.
Rumor on the street is that Afro Phil just bought these guys out and is opening up where the Crux used to be: http://www.boiseweekly.com/boise/afro-phil-coffee/Content?oid=3112885
