My liver is starting to tell me to go F myself so I guess it's time for me to quit....for good :(

I'll spare you the gruesome details but sometimes you never notice your liver is ailing until you engage in some kind of activity that triggers it.

I used to know a guy, he died in car crash.  If he wasn't a raging alcoholic he certainly would have survived but the crash ruptured what was left of his liver and he died on the spot.  True story.

I typically only have mixed drinks when I am out with my wife, and typically we explore new drinks during our Vegas trips. But I am clearly missing all that with the pandemic, so I decided to throw some cheap bourbon in with spiced cider. It turned out pretty well! Itch is now scratched.

My fiance prefers mixed drinks, so I've gotten used to making them on the weekend. Apple is pretty versatile and I think it goes well enough with whiskeys and rums to be at least a decent drink if you don't want a straight hit. For cider and bourbon I like to add a bit of honey or agave, but I don't use spiced cider so that might go terribly wrong.

I picked up a bottle of Whistle Pig rye whiskey that's pretty good for what it is. I drank it straight today, tomorrow I'm going to probably try something with orange.

I bought some cranberry lime mixer and sone vodka in the hopes of taking advantage of my wife with some ****tails tonight. It worked out somewhat, but she does seem to be somewhat immune to vodka. You see, she spent a year dancing in Japan in her 20's, and now she has move onto something called Shochu:

Anyways, I am drunk, and she is fine. >_<

I know what shochu is because of the Yakuza games. Score another one for Ryu Ga Gotoku.

I had this with my dad during the holidays:

I had zero previous experience with Japanese whiskies. Quite sweet and smooth with a good bit of burn (51.4%, it comes with the territory). It went well with a cigar.

Sounds nice, though because of how things work here, I've somewhat limited options unless I want to privately import. And then we're talking about 1200$+cost of whatever the price of the bottle; Would your wife recommend any of these three?

Now I'm really curious to see if Hurlshot will know which one of the buttons means "yeah I'm old enough to look at alcohol" and all that stuff in the pop ups.

No cheating with google! ;):p

Hah, I did figure out that under 20 was the wrong button to push. :thumbsup:

I have no idea of those are good. Honestly I don't think she drinks the good stuff anyways, it is all fruity and too sweet for me.

I'm glad to be a good influence.

Hot chocolate and bourbon is pretty good.

Which burbon?

Still drinking peppermint pattys, but one day I might want some variation on it

I bought a mix and a decent bottle of Vodka to make some Moscow Mules for tonight. No copper cup, but still a tasty break from my typical IPA's. Digital learning and instacarting has definitely driven me to more drinking than usual.

At least I ran 7 miles before getting drunk. 😝

I ordered some Leffe on Drizly but forgot to uncheck the box that lets the store substitute if it's out of stock. They brought something called 1664 Blanc and I hate it. I hate it so much and now I have 2 six packs of it.

Rehydrating with Moscow Mules? Here's your gold man-card. 🎟

I poured me a small Pálinka (from northern Romania I brought with me from our last posting). The first sips were really good but the last two ones were a hellish nightmare, uäch. How can a drink turn from good into urglfx in half an hour? This never happens with stuff like Vodka or Gin but lots of times with Whisky, Cognac, (fruit) brandy and the like. What am I doing wrong?
