1 bottle of Bulleit bourbon
I found this to be a surprisingly good bourbon for the relatively cheap price. It has the firey taste of say, Maker's Mark, but with a much smoother and refined finish. And at a better price!
Yeah, it's a real bargain. I went through a phase when I was trying every different small-batch bourbon I could find, and IMHO, none of them were better than Bulleit.

Wine. No snobbery here.
Fantastic, you can have this bottle of E&J Gallo Cabernet someone gave me then. I wouldn't even cook with it since I don't require my food to taste like Ribena.

...and I was recently introduced to "real" absinthe, with the whole ritual of the water decanter, slotted spoons, sugar, flame ....
Actually, the classic way is without flame. Cold water over a sugar cube placed on the spoon, with the dissolving sugar allowed to create a translucent louche in the liquor.
Yeah, I just heard this recently. I first had it (after the ban) at a little hole in the wall local bar that I've frequented for years. The owner bought one of those beautiful old art deco decanter set ups with the matching slotted spoons and such. They make quite a show of the whole experience. I enjoy the ritual of it, but I suspect the flaming part is intended to add to the spectacle.

What is it with all vodka martinis? I'm just a gin guy.
My hubby and his entire family are Beefeater martini drinkers. They're the ones who really got me into them. I still drink that with them, but that's pretty much the only time I can do gin. As I said above, I actually quite like the taste of a gin martini, but if I have anything else -- beer, wine -- or more than 1 gin martini in an evening, it will leave me with the absolute worst hangover. Thus, the vodka. Whaddaya gonna do, right?

Ugh, I cannot drink SoCo anymore. I had a bad experience once, and now just the smell of it makes me gag. The same experience is the reason I can no longer drink Dr. Pepper.
Couple of years ago I had a "bad experience" as well. It was six months before I could stomach it again. Man, I wish Dr Pepper was easier to find here. Can't remember where I last saw some...I wonder what SoCo would be like with it. Mail me some!

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

Beer and wine. I can't really stand to be liquor drunk any more. I used to drink a lot of vodka, but I really haven't been inclined to do so for about 10 or 12 years. I just end up feeling dizzy and sick when I drink such things. The exceptions are mojitos. I will take the occasional Jaeger shot, r a trashy candy shot of some sort when offered.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

After having been voted Favorite Drunk in the Admirals Lounge for many years in a row now, I felt I should say something in this thread.

However, strangely enough, being sobor at the time, I find myself at a loss for words.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

I love a cosmopolitan. Though no matter how much weight I lose and those days I brush my hair, or wear make up.... I still get funny looks from the overly hetero crowd.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

I don't drink much anymore...but when I do I'll hit some wine, wine coolers or a bay breeze. I will only drink Vodka and no other hard liquor at this point.

In my younger days I would drink anything and a lot of it.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

ahhh I remember the days of 199 proof grain in a shot glass on fire burning my nose hairs mmm guess the nose hairs were not needed back then .,

since the psycho-rehab back in 92 I have partayed little if any at all, I am now without the drink for about 12 years ...

actually Since I suffer from the medical condition of diabetes i do not even have sugar (try that?) I lost weight from not eating the sugar but I am still over weight ... although now and then a good sugar fix is similar to drinking a beer (really I lost all sorts of tolerance for even that)

I remember they always talked about crossing over a line when I drank because I would not stop drinking till I was beyond the black-out phase of drunk.. the spinning room was and is still spinning (without even drinking these days...)

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

When I was younger I wanted Rum and coke, or vodka drinks.

Now I prefer white wine and the occational Smirnoff Ice, unless I am in a coctail bar.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

Nearly any fresh beer, vodka Absolut mixed with nearly everything, pastis with mint cream (a Perroquet), Sauternes and Coteaux-du-Layon.
I prefer white wine to red wine but I can appreciate a good Bourgogne
And Champagne of course

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

I am heavily into microbrews, particularly IPAs (India Pale Ales). There are a lot of good ones around here. Ninkasi is a brewer here in town that makes an excellent IPA and their double-red ale is also quite delicious.
