When I was bartending, the drink we made the most often was the Caesar.
I'm actually surprised to find that webtender knows how to make one.

I've never seen it in any bartending book that wasn't written in Canada.

So, this giraffe walks into a bar and says "The high balls are on me"
2004-10-03 11:04:20 PM  
I'm just waiting for someone to ask "How do you make a gin & tonic?"

Webtender, web schmnder.

what, no sazerac?

I don't know where you're from, but I didn't think anyone outside of New Orleans had ever even heard of the Sazerac. Of course, the only locale in the world that makes it properly is the Sazerac Bar in the Fairmont Hotel. The also make the legendary Ramos Gin Fizz (also invented here). The only drink most people associate with New Orleans is the Hurricane.

stubblyhead has it right. Well, OK, close to it. I'm not much on Beefeater Gin. A very dry Martini is just perfection. I found a great ratio is sipping on Gin while looking at a bottle of Vermouth.

Yeah. It looks like a list of crappy drinks...

BTW. The lyrics are:

Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
Rupert Holmes

I was tired of my lady
We'd been together too long
Like a worn-out recording
Of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleeping
I read the paper in bed
And in the personal columns
There was this letter I read

"If you like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
If you're not into yoga
If you have half a brain
If you'd like making love at midnight
In the dunes on the Cape
Then I'm the love that you've looked for
Write to me and escape."

I didn't think about my lady
I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady
Have fallen into the same old dull routine
So I wrote to the paper
Took out a personal ad
And though I'm nobody's poet
I thought it wasn't half bad

"Yes I like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into health food
I am into champagne
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon
And cut through all this red-tape
At a bar called O'Malley's
Where we'll plan our escape."

So I waited with high hopes
And she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant
I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady
And she said, "Oh it's you."
Then we laughed for a moment
And I said, "I never knew."

That you like Pina Coladas
Getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean
And the taste of champagne
If you'd like making love at midnight
In the dunes of the Cape
You're the lady I've looked for
Come with me and escape

repeat chorus twice and fade out

Straight liquor of any type tastes horrible.

You got my three favorites right there.
2004-10-03 11:09:41 PM  
Where are the warcloud or the cement mixer? Or even the jackhammer? That list half sounds like the whatyou would buy someone on their birthday list.

Finally, at the tender age of 28, I started drinking Gin and Tonics. I still drink wine now and again (at home, for example), and the ocassional beer if its offered, but typically just a good old Gin and Tonic. They're kind of subtle, and you don't end up smelling like a brewery. Plus, if you drank enough of it, you wouldn't have to worry about malaria.
2004-10-03 11:11:13 PM  
Aaaaaaand, so begins vodka+tonic #3.
2004-10-03 11:15:12 PM  
Straight liquor of any type tastes horrible.

You blaspheme. Ice is acceptable in a good whisk(e)y, but if you're mixing anything but rye you are a heretic who should be forced to drink Zimas for atonement.

2004-10-03 11:16:33 PM  
foxyg gin and tonic is more of a summer drink though. About 2/3 Plymouth and 1/3 tonic is heaven on a hot summer night. But during the winter nothing beats a nice bourbon.
2004-10-03 11:27:03 PM  
I call shinannigans....Rum & Coke not mentioned in the top 100?

2004-10-03 11:29:30 PM  

These are all girly drinks.

//CC& coke please.

CC & Coke is manly?
2004-10-03 11:29:31 PM  
"Straight liquor of any type tastes horrible."

yeah, but straight liquor can fark you up faster. and isn't that what it's all about?

i don't drink alcohol for taste, since it tastes horrible. i drink pepsi for taste. i drink alcohol to get messed up.
2004-10-03 11:30:46 PM  
Mmmm, my drinks of choice are #2 and #28
2004-10-03 11:31:16 PM  
gonna have to disagree with ya stubblyhead...

[image from too old to be available]
is where it's at....

also, i always thought a Liquid Cocaine was Goldschlagger and Jagermeister (half and half) those are a good time...

What's "sex on the beach" doing there? Noone needs a farkin' recipe to open a can of Budweiser.

Excellent reference. Wonder who else will catch it.
2004-10-03 11:48:49 PM  
Not much of a drinker, but Jack and Coke is nice.

Very nice.
2004-10-03 11:49:32 PM  
strangest drinks ever made for people other than myself:

remy VS w/ root beer

hot damn w/ mr. pibb

margarita... w/ olives

malibu + sapphire w/ OJ & pineapple

i still get the dry heaves when i think about making that last one.
2004-10-03 11:50:29 PM  
What, no Four Horsemen? Sure, the minty taste kinda sucks but a couple of those is a very efficient way to get your buzz going to start the evening...

/off to the fridge for a beer.

The only reason to drink most of those guaranteed hangover-helpers is that you've never been in a bar before and want to sound like you know something and at the same time demonstrate that you actually don't. Anybody who actually knows about drinking knows that the only proper mixed drinks are lists of ingredients (e.g. gin and tonic, vodka tonic, whiskey soda, whiskey sour, 7&7, scotch and soda, & beer. The only "named" drinks are Martini, Manhattan, Highball, Boilermaker, screwdriver, greyhound, and Margarita and if it's before noon, drinker's time, or you're about to get on a plane, "bloody mary" is also just barely acceptable.) Anybody who asks for anything with the word "sex", "beach," "peach," "pink," or any drink with a pun in its name had better be wearing a cheerleader outfit.

Let me put it this way; imagine walking into a bar full of union longshoremen and telling the bartender that you want a goodnight kiss or you're looking for a piece of ass or you really want a blow job #3, or you are hoping to find cum in a hot tub. Better hope you have dental insurance, 'cause you'll be holding some of your teeth in your hat by the time you go home. Either that or you'll be the star of a film with a very select audience.

There are three things you should know before going to a bar
1) your order should be a list of ingrdients, not some weird name
2) if you can not accomplish rule #1, you had better be wearing a short skirt and wearing it well
3) TIP! I can't stress this strongly enough. Tip the bartender, tip the waitress, tip the busboys and janitor, tip anybody that is employed there. If you don't, your second round will contain someone's bodily fluids; quite likely the fat but muscular guy with the tattooed tear and the leather vest who is wearing a ring on a leather thong around his neck that looks like the one on your waitress' finger.

If you can not abide by these simple rules, for your own safety, go to the sports bars close to college campuses where the frat boys hang out.

I actually heard a sorostitute on the bus ask what was in a Gin and Tonic. Her friend replied that it sounded like a girl drink.

I really wanted to slap them both.
2004-10-04 12:00:05 AM  
that list makes me never want to bartend ever again.

/"gin and... tonic? do they mix?"

2 shots of jager to 1 bottle of Rolling rock = 1 Rolling Rootbeer

nothing fancy, just a sadistic boilermaker
2004-10-04 12:08:22 AM  

Thank you for adding that caveat on whisky/whiskey. Simple guide, folks. Is it from Canada or Scotland? Then it's "whisky." Is it from the United States or Ireland? You're drinking "whiskey," friend.

/bottoms up
2004-10-04 12:09:00 AM  
FloydA: TOTALLY with you on tip #3...when I go to a new bar, I think "is it worth $5 to me to be treated well every time I come here?" and the answer is invariably yes.

What's a holy bartender?

P.S. LOVED the Dogma reference :o)
2004-10-04 12:16:48 AM  
tom servo bit me there are purists who refuse to recognize the spelling "whiskey"...but most of what I drink spells it that way. Scotch just isn't my primary choice of styles.

No matter what style you drink though, there are great brands out there.
2004-10-04 12:21:40 AM  
I normally just walk into a bar and order a beer (usually a pitcher 'cause it ends up being cheaper that way) or if I feel like a mixed drink it's rye and coke. However when I was in Windsor my roomate and I used to make jello shots, we were very inventive with the types of alcohol we put with the different flavours of jello and they always tasted really yummy. Of course some other people who tried them thought they were a bit strong but we liked them anyway. Just remember to mix the alcohol and water equally and they come out pretty good. And now I feel like a beer, too bad I'm at work.
2004-10-04 12:25:52 AM  
there are purists who refuse to recognize the spelling "whiskey"

The spelling "whiskey" denotes that the liquor was comes from Ireland or the United States. If it's made elsewhere (usually Canada or Scotland), the spelling is supposed to be "whisky".
2004-10-04 12:29:53 AM  
This list is completely wack. Why list different versions of the same drink? Most people ordering "sex on the beach" could give a fark what's in it.
2004-10-04 12:31:14 AM  
I knew this guy in the Czech Republic who worked at a slaughterhouse all day, killing cows, and came up with a drink he called "The Butcher's Breakfast." He used to drink it at 5 a.m. and ride his bike 3 miles to work afterwards.

It goes something like this -- and I've seen him drink one at a bar (all at once, down the hatch):

Take a pint glass:
1/3 rum
1/3 coffee
1/3 milk
1 raw egg

There may have been more ingredients, but nothing to balance it out. That guy also used to come to the bar with his cloth-wrapped set of knives used for slitting cattle and pig throats, and whatnot.

Good times, good times.
2004-10-04 12:35:30 AM  
When I'm out, it's either beer or hard cider (when I can find it), or sometimes a Black Velvet or Snakebite to split the difference. At home, add wine into the mix. I don't really cotton to hard liquor myself, but I do want to be a bartender someday.

Random bit of information: I have tasted Irish poitin. Tastes like cleaning fluid -- I can't imagine anyone actually drinking it.


Those purists are idiots. The spelling of whisk(e)y of course depends on where it comes from.


Seems to me any drink called "liquid cocaine" should involve heavy doses of Mountain Dew or Red Bull...
2004-10-04 12:35:53 AM  
Most hardcore drink - three wise men.

Jack, Jim, and Johnny.

One or two glasses of that will hurt you.
2004-10-04 12:37:00 AM  
you can't forget the best "fall" drink .... the "Irish car bomb"....

6oz Guinness
1/2oz Jamesons
1/2oz Irish creme

mix Jamesons and Irish creme in shot glass

drop shot into Guiness

drink all at once, immediately
2004-10-04 12:38:12 AM  
mmm... gin and tonic with a little lime... i'm off to the kitchen to make me one now!
2004-10-04 12:43:14 AM  
skot11 they're pretty good, had a girl buy me the only one I've had about a week ago (too bad she was taken, she was the first girl to convince me to dance in a long time).
2004-10-04 12:43:46 AM  
Been working at a local bar for the past month or so, and so far the strangest drink I've had to make was just this past Friday, when someone ordered a Corona with a splash of grenadine. wtf?
2004-10-04 12:43:59 AM  
Screaming Viking! Screaming Viking! Screaming Viking!

Yes, I would like the cucumber slightly bruised...
