i had a gibson recently and the waiter asked me a series of questions - ofc i didn’t know the answers to because it’s not like i drink regularly. so that was an interesting education.

Expresses, please, not squeezes. Are we barbarians? 😂

The big question - express and discard, or express and drop in? We're hopefully just talking the peel here.
