Help me streamline this drink

They play well together in every Ramos Gin Fizz. I've made
Next version will have more gin, a lemon instead of lemonade and maybe vanilla liqueur or maraschino liqueur?.

Help me streamline this drink

The rose water syrup was homemade and dyed pink. The carbonation gun is just that, a sort of tool for making things fizzy.

The gin I'm guessing is a 3rd of an ounce.

Help me streamline this drink

A few days ago, I made a drink I'm calling the Rose_anon after a rose syrup loving Anonymous commenter on another message board. Now I know I have sweet tooth, and I'm trying to make this drink a bit more complex and 'adult tasting.'

Here is the original recipe.
1/2 jigger of dry gin (I think)
a generous teaspoon of rose water syrup
1/4 teaspoon of homemade maraschino cherry juice (elements include: sugar, maraschino liqueur, cherries, and vanilla)
a half cup of lemonade.
An egg white
I dry shake for a minute and then pour.
and finally I hit it with a blast of a carbonation gun.

What do you suggest?

Why do so many people hate Gin?

Gin Lane by Hogarth! I almost forgot one of favorite my pieces of art! Also the name of my hypothetical cocktail bar!

What can I make with this stuff? (Paging JMF or Yarm).

Currently in my liquor cabinet I have Woodford reserve bourbon, Triple sec, Maraschino liqueur, Amaretto,an oz of Gilby's Gin, and Angostura bitters, Fee brothers Lemon bitters, Fee brother's west indian orange bitters and Fee brother's old fashioned barrel aged bitters. Plus lemons, limes, heavy cream, lemonade, brown sugar, rose water syrup, orange flower water syrup, fresh mint, fresh basil and maybe one homemade maraschino cherry plus juice.

Right now I am to poor to buy any liquor or wines. Any suggestions?

What would you do to fix the Food Network

I do! When I tune in, I usually have mismatched pantry and if they can turn things like that into a dessert there is hope for someone like me.

To much pork belly!

Due to a funny set of circumstances. I have about 3lbs of the stuff. I love but I have no idea what do with it beyond roasting it for pork buns or sautéing it with kimchi. At the moment I have no idea what do with it all. Any ideas o, learned scholars of chow?

What to do with pandan leaves?

Basically that's what I want to do south east asian desserts or riffs on them. I think I need to buy some palm sugar and coconut milk for that though.

Supersizers?

Does anyone outside of Europe love this show as much as I? I know it aired in 2012, but I discovered it via youtube this year. And I have been watching and re-watching it ad nausea. I love the concept of two people living and eating in historically accurate ways. I love the fact in focused on food history and culture of all the different eras in Britain.

I wish they'd do an American (USA) version of it maybe have a 19th century version where they recreate the menu of the original Delmonico's. I have no idea who would analogous to Giles Coren and Sue Perkins. Since they were amazing and funny.

Anyone else like the show? Or know even what I'm talking about?

favorite bottled salad dressings?!?

Kraft Ranch dressing. Because I can make a cheap and trashy dip out of it and it makes pizza crusts so yummy!

"I Don't Cook"

I'm to poor not to cook. I long ago figured out that pre-cooked meals, even the 'good' ones cost way more then buying ingredients and cooking for myself. I usually cook one big meal and it last for three days. Which I like. With the cuts in food stamps. It's so much easier to buy frozen veggies and some chicken thighs. Also having no job means I can't go out.

Besides that I find cooking relaxes me and it's a great creative outlet. I get excited going to grocery shopping discovering new foods and cuisines. I guess it's not the same for other people. My Grandma cooks, my Mom cooks my Dad cooks even my Stepdad cooks. I guess it's what your brought up with and what you love to do.

How to eat fresh tomatoes?

Since this thread opened my eyes. I've been eating tomatoes with salt, pepper and mayo. It's really good! Even though I mostly use Helmans. Also salt can turn a bad tomato delicious.
