I've cut back on alcohol a lot but last night I treated myself to a couple of old fashioneds. Definitely one of the top 2 or 3 that I've ever had.

I can't decide if I like my irish coffee best with the cream on top, and taking a bit of cold fresh cream float together with the coffee, or if I like it best with the cream mixed in. 🤔

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L.

I think I could make this. I'll see if I drank all the Bourbon when I get home.

Personally, I go with Irish Cream and Coffee liqueur (sometimes chocolate as well) mixed in with the coffee and maybe a bit of cream on top.

I haven't tried that variant yet, I'm still at brown sugar, irish whiskey (Sucks that I'm stuck with Tullamore DEW atm) with a whipped cream float. I can see some baileys working nice though 😃

Only problem is that I'd proabably only get one drink out of a bottle of baileys. I know myself. I know what will happen to that poor baileys bottle. 😅

I like the rum cask Tullamore DEW, and I think there's one other that's really good, but I'd usually go for Jameson Black Barrel or Writer's Tears for most drinks and Redbreast or Green (or one of the other colors) Spot for drinking straight or in Old Fashioneds.

The Baileys sounds like you need a lock or something.

Oh, and I did drink all the Bourbon. And only have Peychauds. Lmao

I don't know if it's because it's popular as hell, or unpopular as hell, don't really matter, the result is the same, but Irish whiskey is really limited in availability here. I could get Jameson (triple distilled, single malt) instead, I could put in an order for a delivery of Teeling, but I don't know much about whiskey.

Heh, I once walked 20km while drunk because my friend said she happened to have Baileys and 2 bottles of Licor 43 at home. I brought 2 litres of milk. The next day she had no Baileys or Licor 43, one empty packet of milk, and one nasty headache.

I'm afraid a lock wouldn't do me much good. Maybe a time-locked safe 🤔🤣

Heineken.  Best beer ever bar none.

This should also be the tobacco and hookers thread.

I mean **** who doesn't want to die with a collapsed lung, a sweet prostitute, and a blood alcohol level that's 4 times the legal driving limit??

Writers Tears Double Oak. It's different. Not bad but at all but different from my usual expectations.

Getting down on some moonshine made right here in cackalacky:

It's quite tasty and smooth, sweeter than I expected; it's almost like a liqueur. I'm drinking it straight at room temperature, it doesn't need ice, nor a mixer, nor a chaser. If I wind up passed out face down in the middle of my living room, y'all know why.

Sort of an old fashioned with Writer's Tears Double Oak, Benedictine, Peychauds, orange bitters, a bit of syrup, some orange peel around the glass before dropping in, and a cute little cherry to hang with the ice. It's very interesting, in general I prefer Irish or rye to bourbon and dislike Scotch so it works pretty good for my tastes. The Benedictine was recommended to me in place of sugar, but I don't think it quite gets there so I used the syrup I have on hand to get it to where I like it. I'd recommend it, but maybe swap out the Writer's Tears for Redbreast or Jameson Black Barrel because I get something from that whiskey I don't quite like.

Finished the last of the double oak, have to say it is a downgrade from just the standard Writer's Tears.

Opened a bottle of Devils River Rye. It is pretty good and not terribly expensive.
