What are you drinking tonight?
« on: March 05, 2017, 10:45:12 pm »
Hey. So for a spinoff from Any Good Things. The house in getting has a bar. Or will shortly. And I get to stock a bar. It's been a while since I switched to smoking instead. Once we move I have to quit smoking so I can get a real job and drinking looks like a good alternative. I used to like it and I am a hell of a bartender.
So here's the game. What's good but won't break the bank. Mrs. Rookie likes vodka and some rum. I'm more a whiskey man. In all forms. We're always happy to learn about new brands or new drinks. But neither knows anything about tequila or gin.
So what are you guys drinking tonight? If I wasn't smoking it would be either Jameson at home or Jim at a bar.

Tap water, because Vancouver's is among the best in the world and I'm enough of a jackass sober.

(If I'm not drinking that, I'm drinking chamomile tea.)
Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Jameson's Gold or Jameson's the signature is pretty fucking special if you want a good whiskey. They're reasonably exxy but not crazy in the scotch stakes which can get fucking crazy. Tanqueray and Bombay Sapphire Gin is pretty good to -Gin/Tonic and lime/grapefruit.

Tonight I won't be drinking though but probably will by Friday.

Also it is hard to go past a caucasian. Get Tia Maria though instead of kahlua

I found out I like gin and tonic.

Gin and Tonic is one of those surprisingly good drinks. Surprising because both Gin and Tonic by themselves are pretty fucking rough. But together they are brilliant especially when the weather is hot as Beelzebub's nipples. You have it with lime, lemon or grapefruit? Or have you gone hard out the gate and sprung for Hendricks and had it with cucumber?

Gin and Juice is good too:

I had lime. It was at a wedding so the selection was limited to Bombay Sapphire. But I've heard great things about Hendricks and can't wait to try it.

Bombay Sapphire is pretty fucking good. Lime is also better than lemon. And go for ruby red grapefruit when you feel like something different.

Bombay Sapphire would be a great stripper name as well.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:

Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Jameson is a good whiskey.  It is not very burny or of shitty taste.  It receives my coveted seal of whiskey approval.  I have yet to try the absinthe I got, so no opinions on that, yet.
