I have never been much of a drinker, but this one deserves a post:
Old Monk was one of my first brushes with alcohol and there's never been a time when I didn't like it. No, I don't have it neat; for I love its versatility (it pairs as beautifully with milk, coffee liqueur and juices as it does with Coke; and I am not even referring to rum cakes). My fondest memories of drinking no doubt include my coke and rum days at the Press Club, all for a pittance. Old Monk is known to not discriminate; it loves and entertains both the rich and the not-so-rich in equal measure. And while too much of anything is bad, I have to admit that Old Monk is good a company as alcohol can ever be for me.
This photo of a limited edition OM bottle is my way of saying thanks and RIP to Kapil Mohan, the man behind Old Monk and Mohan Meakin, the first known brewery in India. Alas, it's empty, which it might as well be now given his contribution to the Indian rum segment. --Mrs Foodakris
