I just bought some el Dorado 8, dark spiced rum. Really enjoying it, sipping, in my coffee, in my homemade hot chocolate. It's good stuff.

I should not make putting rum into my coffee a habit. I'm telling myself that it's just because it's the holiday week and no one else is around to know/care, but damn it's so good.

Or would you like to (I am itching to do an infodump)?

They differ a bit by region, like the name for Tempranillo (Tinta de Toro, Tinta del Pais, etc), but do help when buying some wine from those region
again late response, but yes, please go ahead. The more information the better, I just have never bothered to go look for it myself.

Also, Chartreuse Verte because I'm fancy like that and I just finished my bottle of Fernet Menta the other day.

Water, because it's hydrating.

I've been making my own for the past year or so - equal parts dark (~90% cocoa) chocolate finely ground, full fat cocoa powder from Penzey's, and monk fruit. I use a sifter to sift it all together, and store it in a large mason jar. Doing 100g-100g-100g of the ingredients (which is basically starting with a full chocolate bar) fills the jar. Not all dark chocolate is created equal, so you need to play a bit with the proportions sometimes. Good stuff, rich, and vastly less in sugar than store bought hot chocolate.

Hmmm. I have some fantastic unsweetened French coco that could be played with in the future. Currently going through coco that was gifted and some purchased from Lagusta's Luscious.
