OK.

I am not a fan of the Sazerac. not only does it ruin the taste of the rye but it makes me all tingly with a flavor I detest.

oh well, worth a shot. anyone want a really old and full bottle of pernod?

If you think you can ship it to FL without it spilling or breaking for less than the cost of a new bottle, I'm in.

Found it: sparkling water. We had dinner at The Columbia recently and that's what they made theirs with. Not as syrupy as the average bar-made mojito that uses Sprite/7-Up and not as bitter as one made with soda water/seltzer.

The Bulleit Rye is great in Old Fashioneds for something a little different. As a "rye light" bourbon, the regular Bulleit still seems to have a bit more rye spiciness to it.



I am looking to pick up a gift for someone and need some help. I've checked Google and Amazon without much success so far. I'm looking for a good quality, 8 oz flask, preferably something that is wrapped in a tooled or "vintaged" leather. Unfortunately, it's one of those "I'll know it when I see it" things, so I can't cite a specific design.

Anyone have any recommendations on other places to look?

I guess the mistake you seem to be making is based on the fact that you think drinking should be comprised of the things that keep Costco in business: massive volumes at discount prices.

You go ahead and drink yourself under the table while I waste my money on stuff that's really good.

i'm a manhatan guy, streight up extra dry. which for those of you who don't know the drink, means i like whisky, but don't want people to think that i drink out of the bottle. my problem now is that i found **** Creek single barrel, and fell in love with it, but it costs an arm and a leg when at the bar, so now i start with that, and as the night progresses i go for cheeper and cheeper burbon. then i wake up with a smakk elephant where my brain used to be.

whiskey.

the reason you get hung over with whiskey and not vodka is because it is full of cogeners

which is chemical stuff. serious.

i get a hangover regardless of what i drink, and i'm not a huge fan of vodka. high end liquor doesn't hurt quite as bad in the morning as the cheap stuff.

Stopped in the liquor store this evening and picked up some Boodle's and some Four Roses Single Barrel.

Then my parents came by the house to visit since my Dad just came back from a trip to France to see his parents. He brought this back for me:

I like the Four Roses but haven't heard of or tried the Boodle's. If you ever see it, I just got turned on to Eagle Rare. It's a bit "spicy" with more rye content, I believe.

Boodle's British Gin -- better than the cheap brands, less expensive than Hendrick's.

I think I've seen Eagle Rare in a store recently. The Four Roses SB was my consolation prize -- the store also had a bottle of Jefferson Reserve Presidential Select which I lusted after but could not afford.

Calvados = apple brandy

Pere Magloire XO is very good stuff.

I'm having Jose Cuervo Silver right now. Do y'all find gold better for sipping, and silver better for margaritas and such? I find that I prefer it that way.

Scrappy Jack sent me here, as I'm taking a rest from the politics forum.

My wife made me a GREAT drink last night with my favorite ingredient. Our cupboards are a bit bare (need to go to the store), so I asked her how she made it; juice box and vodka.

Thank God for little kids in the house!

Check out a web site called www.TheHoochLife.com . My friend started it, and it's dedicated to small U.S. distilleries and the awesome cocktails that can be generated.

What flavor juice box? You've got to be specific around here.

I'll make sure to check it out. In the meantime, you (and/or he) might want to review 40 things every Drunkard must do before they die



On a separate note, I've been trying to make "skinnier" cocktails as part of my fitness regimen. I made the mistake of picking up some Tillet Farms organic cherries and they make a delicious Old Fashioned with some decent bourbon and sparkling water. Instead of simple syrup, I use a bit of the cherry juice they are bottled with.

I also made my own sweet and sour mix today. I used fresh squeezed lime juice, a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice and some Florida's Own orange juice with no pulp (no oranges in the house). I mixed it with a gold rum (Appleton Estates) and a splash of sparkling water. Not too shabby.

I also picked up some whisky stones to use in cocktails as a compliment to ice. I stopped using them in Old Fashioneds, though - I can't get to the cherries if I use them!

Hey Faggettes, Y U NO POST IN THIS THREAD?

Having some local Dripping Springs vodka with lime-flavored sparkling water. I must say, I think I like this more than vodka and tonic water.
