What you've been drinking lately.


Recommended Posts

Absolut Citron as part of a delicious Sea Breeze in the precious time before the dead of winter sets upon us. That and the occasional Limona Corona.

The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”

Just bought a bottle of Jameson's, Johnny Walker Red Label, and Disaronno. Found out there's a ****tail of the former two and had that last night, not bad.

 

I think I'm finally able to discriminate between Irish Whiskey and Tennessee Sour Mash. It's taken me long enough.

I bought a large bottle of Gordon Beirsch Zwickelbock and plan on drinking it tonight.

One time I drank Blonde Bock at their brewery directly from the tank.  It was the best beer I've ever had.  This isn't quite as crisp, but it was on sale and is still pretty dang good.

When it comes to whisky, I'm a scotch man.  I rarely buy it, though, because I'm frugal (read: piss poor).  I usually stick with vodka because I can buy fairly good vodka (Sobieski) for $20 for 1.75L.  While it is possible to buy scotch for $20 for 1.75L, said scotch isn't fit for human consumption.

I've been working on a bottle of Taylor's First Estate Reserve Port...

Theakston's Christmas Ale, very palatable pint, good body and a nice aftertaste.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

Cold, unfiltered sake is a nice treat. Like when you're in the mountains, and it's cold outside, but you're eating sushi at the lodge, and the girls come inside, shivering, cause it's so cold, but they wore only skirts and heels, and one of them comes at you from the front, the other behind, and they wrap their freezing cold arms around your neck to get warm. Kinda like that.

  Having a blue moon right now but this is what my current workload looks like

Nice kitchen.

 

Unsolicited advice:  Invest in a quality orange liqueur.  That plastic-bottle triple sec is okay if you're making slushy margaritas for undergraduates, but I wouldn't recommend it otherwise.  A ****tail made with Cointreau or a quality curacao (no, not the awful blue kind) is going to be light-years better. 

 

Also, if the price of a bottle of vodka (x) is > $20, you're getting $20 worth of vodka and $(x-20) worth of bottle.  If you need to be pretentious and bring out the Goose bottle, do the dive-bar switcheroo and pour some sensibly priced vodka into the Goose bottle when it's empty.  Or just stop drinking it-- any vodka ****tail can be infinitely improved by changing the base spirit to either gin or rum.  (Speaking of which, where's the gin?)

 

 

I've just finished a lovely Old Fashioned, made with Bulliet Rye, a homemade ****tail cherry, an orange slice, a demerara sugar cube, and angostura bitters.  I'd go make another, but the wife is a little touchy about seeing me do the drinking that she isn't allowed to. 

 

 

Edit:  ****!

Redbreast. Thinking of using some Cointreau to make Sidecars for some friends tomorrow. Do any of you have recommendations for a good brandy to use?

^ Srsly, you shouldn't be using *good* brandy in ****tails, any more than you'd use decent champagne in 'champagne' ****tails.

 

I'm sure there are lots of mixologists who would die in a ditch to disagree, but these are people who make a living marking up booze prices by 5000%

It's funny you should mention that as it was purchased at the corner liquor store at the last minute for an impromptu margarita party. No undergrads though...

So anything that isn't **** will do? My wallet thanks you.

What you have to remember is that drinktails were (basically) invented to mask the flavour of crap hooch during prohibition.

 

Don't asssume that there's no good reason to use good booze in a drinktail. Just don't do it yourself unless you know _precisely_ what flavour you are trying to achieve.

tarna's dead; processing... complete. Disappointed by Universe. RIP Hades/Sand/etc. Here's hoping your next alt has a harp.
