FedGov is testing cloraquin on this virus. Don't skimp on Gin and tonic.

Ah, Chloroquine-Primaquine. the weekly anti-malaria pill in Vietnam, guaranteed to give you the shits.

The daily one, mefloquine, was worse and may still be causing problems to vets, 50 years on.

I seemed to have a skin reaction to it years ago but looking back it may have been dehydration.

You guys were quite the lab experiment. Stress, agent orange, bullets, malaria, drug cocktails... thanks Uncle Sam!

The Chinese were testing chloroquine. We're going with hydroxychloroquine, a derivative of chloroquine with fewer side effects than chloroquine or primaquine.

While there isn't an adverse drug interaction with hydroxychloroquine and alcohol, it is metabolized by the liver and excessive alcohol consumption can change how it works.

Yep.

Canada Dry Bold Ginger Ale

It's not bad, but the extra ginger is doing something to the back of my throat I'm not too wild about.

Have to call this one a miss. YMMV

I wonder if it's like Verner's ginger ale? Love it can't get it here.

Bottles from the crypt, part 5.
This was actually last week's wine that took a while to fully appreciate.
It was a 1981 V. Sattui Cabernet Sauvignon from their Preston Vineyard in the Napa valley.
The exposed top of the cork was nasty with mold and perhaps other stuff. It came out in pieces and the smell of vinegar and worse filled the kitchen.
This was the dreaded volatile acidity (acetic acid) one fears with old wines.
And it tasted bad, too.
I opened an alternate recent purchase and left the old bottle on the sink with the cork out, expecting to pour it out in the morning.
When it came time for its demise, I poured a little for a final sniff and found the fault to have disappeared!
It was too early in the day to sip it, but by dinner time it still smelled good and tasted soft and mellow, if not award winning.
In my experience and reading, this is not supposed to happen, but it remained drinkable for a day or two.
So I learned a few things that didn't even come close to killing me.
# 6 tomorrow.

Wow, the Sattui came back from the dead! Tales from the crypt.
I'm confused by your statement, "It was too early in the day to sip it," what is that in English?

While I have never been shy about enjoying almost every kind of alcoholic beverage, they don't taste as good before breakfast or even lunch.

I worked around wine tasting rooms for years and grew suspicious as visitors made claims about how fresh and discerning their palates were in the morning and please could they have just a little more of that pinot noir.

Perhaps also contributory, when I was in college, there was a football season activity called "suds at sunrise," when kegs were killed by the dozens. I felt like shit all day afterwards and never knew who won the game.
So I usually keep my yard arm time around five.

I forgot to mention that my Sattui was number 15761 out of 29285 bottled.
I also just thought to look and I found a 1982 currently for sale for $100, and an '85 for $70.
