How do you take your Old Monk?Views: 16467

I guess generally it is with Coke/ Pepsi?

I normally have it with plain ol' water. Sometimes, I mix maybe 25% coke and the rest water.

Are there any other ways members imbibe this elixir of life?

P.S.: A friend of mine has an old OM bottle shaped like an Old Monk. Wonder if anyone knows where to get hold of one.

Ciao

It is better to gulp it with plain water (not even the mineral water...sada paani!)..this is for health and taste purposes..once you start having it with water you will never have it with coke again..will also save some extra $ for another quarter/half ;)..btw, i had tried with lots of colas but the best is thums up! cheers!

Hi all,

I usually take it with Soda. If for some reason (read mood)I find the drink a little too dry, I add some cola (Pepsi,Coke etc.).

Recently I discovered that Old Monk tastes fantastic if diluted with Tonic Water. In case I find it too sweet, I further dilute it with Soda. The bitter taste of quinone in tonic water is what I like.

Try for yourself but please send feedback.

Cheers,
Onkar Singh Plaha.

Hi,

I add 1/3rd Thums Up and 2/3rd Soda, no ice, no lime. It does not matter what you add to it as long as the base is good Old Monk

I like it this way.

Take Whiskey glass (short, wide).

Pour 90ml Old Monk Gold (the 12 year one).

Fill the whole glass with machine made clear Ice Cubes (the
ones with the hole in them).

Pour Thumps Up to fill up the space between and within the ice.

Squeeze in 4 drops of freshly cut Limbu or drop in a thin slice.

Stir ONLY once (or swirl the drink in hand) - Do NOT mix frantically.

Smell, sip, savour, exhale.

Hi Chandra/Don ( you look like one with those glares on).

You have to take a Rum glass, not a Whiskey glass. The rest of the recipe is OK

Interesting. Didn't know there was a Rum Glass. Looks quite nice too.

It looks just like a whiskey glass except for being flared towards the top. Any idea why that is so? And what was the way of having Rum due to which the glass was constructed thus?

This is great. Didn't know there was a rum glass either. I do have those glasses at home, but always thought they were whiskey glasses.

So I get some more education thanks to Old Monk :-)

Hi,


The mouth and shape of the glass is most important. In fact it is almost a science in itself.

Wine glasses have small mouths so that you have to sip small amounts. A beer glass has a large mouth so that you get a big mouthful and your nose also goes into the glass as you sip, so you smell the beer. A brandy glass has that shape so that the palm of the hand warms the brandy. The big mouth has the same funda as the beer glass.

Liquer glasses are small so the quantity is small and you have to take small sips.

All this explains why your beer tastes different when you drink it from a beer glass and from a thin long glass. When you drink beer or coke directly from the bottle it tastes different, because the nose is not involved in the process.

The same funda for tea and coffee. Coffee is traditionally served in small cups. Tea in larger cups.

In some bars they use the wrong glass because they do not know any better. The actual whiskey glass is a short fat one.

A red wine glass, a white wine glass and a sherry glass all look the same. But the red is the smallest and the sherry the biggest. Only by amount 20% each, but that is important.

Cheers.

So whats the reason for the sloping outwards towards the top glass? So that you get less smell or more? Considering Rum (Old Monk) has a string smell.

For me , It has to be with Thums Up. I add some lemon juice to make it tangy ;-)

Also that I treat my sniffy nose with the fumes of stuff before diluting it. I do not know why I do that, its almost a ritual to me.

Usually have it with a bit of thumsup topped with water/soda. Recently discovered that a bit of ginger lemon squash and soda is quite agreeable.
