Shaken or Stirred: Which Gets You Drunker? A Scientific Exploration

Shaken or Stirred: Which Gets You Drunker? A Scientific Exploration | The Poli Grappa Express | Scoop.it
Some bartenders have a chip on their shoulders when it comes cocktails. Shaking waters it down, they say. Stirring is better. James Bond is a pussy. We wondered—what's the scientific difference?

Grappa making: the last 100 years

Grappa making: the last 100 years | The Poli Grappa Express | Scoop.it

Up until the end of the 19th century, Grappa had a peasant or even rustic identity. Considered to be exclusively a male drink, it continued through the first half of the 20th century retaining is nature as a strong and corroborant beverage.

 

The early 1960’s saw the appearance of the first industrial continuous stills in some distilleries. These are distillation systems able to work continuously, non-stop, thus obtaining a very high production of distillate at low cost. Artisan-type Grappa distilleries suffered a big blow from a commercial standpoint, given the highly competitive price of industrial Grappa: if there were nearly 2.000 artisan producers of Grappa at the beginning of the 20th century, today there are only about 90.

Accomplished artist Patricia Smith on the subject of Grappa | The Poli Grappa Express | Scoop.it

Grappa is an acquired taste. A marc based distilled beverage (80 to 90 proof), it was originally made in (or around) the lovely old town of Bassano del Grappa in the Veneto region.

 

It has been produced for centuries, beginning its career as the rough drink of the poor. It utilizes the mosto, (skins, seeds, pulp and stems – the pomace -) left over after wine making in order to waste nothing. It was a warming drink and considered good for the digestion. Coffee was – and is – often corretto (“corrected”) with a shot and it is extensively used in cooking..

I love a good budino. Inside a harder shell there is a gooey inside that wets the plate when you start eating it. It is not really a pudding, or a soufflé, but something almost in-between. Budini ...
