TripcodeMel: Everclear, Mountain Dew, lemonade mix, cherry Kool-Aid mix, and water to taste.

And AWAY we go!

I don't have the taste for alcohol and I'm not going to waste money and time trying to GET the taste for alcohol. If for some boneheaded reason the object is to actually get drunk, then I'm going to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible.


Then why are you mixing it with stuff? Just take two shots of Everclear and get ready for a party.

Ow My Balls: Why do people drink bourbon or scotch with ice in it? When I'm trying a type of alcoholic beverage, I want it straight so I can study it as it is. Why water it down and cool it off? Straight is great, IMO...


Our house bottle is Maker's. I've had thousands of glasses of the stuff neat. I don't need to study it anymore. I've got a farking PHD in the stuff. Sometimes it's good with a cube or two of ice, on a warm day. Or sometimes if you've already had 4 or 5, throwing a couple of cubes in slows it down a bit.

Then there's the Bookers. Which I've studied on many occasion. 128 average proof is a pretty stiff drink, there's no shame in throwing a cube or two in.

If it's my first time with a whiskey I'd never dream of putting ice in. But then there are some times when cold whiskey flavored water is pretty darned good!

I Like Bread: Can't be a list of my favorite drinks, because egg nog isn't on it.


Why is egg nog the only kind of nog? Other breakfast foods should be available in handy nog form as well. Bacon nog, toast nog, Cap'n Crunch nog, black pudding, fried tomato and beans nog...

cptjeff: 0x1a4: Drink whatever the hell you want. Sheesh. I love scotch. Not because it's manly, but because it tastes great. If you like Zima or Bud Light Lime, go for it...

/cheers!

Would you tell people that, if they like it, their McDonalds is just as good as your gourmet steak? Some things are just crappy, and people who eat or drink them should be called out for their lack of taste and introduced to food and drink of actual quality.


You have a point, but it's quite different from the 'Real Men' angle that the article is taking. 'Lack of taste' does not equal 'not a Real Man'.

I usually stay away from the "chick drinks" unless on vacation.

However, with that said, I once saw a guy get some shiat talked to him for ordering an Appletini. He stood up and dwarfed the guy who was talking shiat to him and simply said, "Lets see if you're man enough to say that to my face." It was hysterical seeing that little-shiat back down and apologize.

Slightly off-topic:
Why do little guys try to act all tough around we big guys? It's not like I'm going around shoving them out of the way saying "Watch out small fry". It's like we're a natural target for them. Which never ends well for them, as there are very few times someone who is 5'7 165lbs without any fighting experience is going to beat a 6'5 250lbs guy.


Alcohol is a helluva drug.

Ah, peach Schnapps. You tortured us for one night in high school, and we never made the same mistake again.

For me it was college, but other than that, he's right. After one night of violent puking, the mere scent of peach schnapps would send me fleeing from a room. For all I know, it still would, except that everyone I know got over the whole peach schnapps thing about 20 years ago.
 
2012-02-19 02:51:52 PM  

turbidum: The list:

1. Cosmopolitan
2. Appletini
3. Any Alcopop
4. Sex on the Beach
5. Whatever You Want
6. What She's Having
7. Non-martini Tini
8. Fuzzy Navel
9. Malibu & Diet Coke
10. A drink with a name you can't pronounce


Most of those prohibitions actually make sense. In fact, this may be the first "real men don't" list in the history of alchohol that does make sense.

Instead of a ... order a ....
1. Cosmopolitan ... beating in the alley behind the bar.
2. Appletini ... Jones Apple Soda.
3. Any Alcopop ... Lime Ricky.
4. Sex on the Beach ... beating in front of the bar.
5. Whatever You Want ... something more sensible.
6. What She's Having ... something cheaper.
7. Non-martini Tini ... wet martini with extra olive.
8. Fuzzy Navel ... Marguerita.
9. Malibu & Diet Coke ... rum and coke. Malibu is known to me largely from finding little bottles of it scattered on the street and from the Bottom episode where the boyz steal a vast quantity of it during the annual Hammersmith riots.
10. A drink with a name you can't pronounce ... a Bloody Mary. By the end of the evening you should still be able to say bloody, although you may have developed a cockney accent.

Personally I nearly always order an old-fashioned, simple drink that is nearly impossible to screw up and which I can remember off the top of my head without any thinking about what I really want.

1. Scotch and soda
2. Scotch on the rocks
3. Caesar or Bloody Mary
4. Dry martini
5. Gibson
6. Old-fashioned
7. Irish or Spanish Coffee
8. Long Island Iced Tea
9. Aperatif
10. An inoffensively mild and bland beer such as a Molsen's Golden

I don't usually get much further down the list than the Bloody Mary. That would take thinking and it's hard to think in a bar even if you are stone sober. Bars are designed to shut down your higher order brain functions immediately upon entry.

A Mimosa with brunch is a possibility, but I still prefer a Caesar or a Bloody Mary. I don't drink a lot of tomato juice because it tends to spoil before I finish it, so I get it when I can. Sometimes when I am cooking and drain the tomatoes I make one at home.
 
2012-02-19 02:52:43 PM  

tuanortsa: As a chick, I've gotta say that I would never order any of those drinks either.
My top 5
1: Bourbon on the rocks
2: Scotch and water (glenlivet 12 please)
3: Duvel
4: a nice shot of repisadoreposado
5: vodka soda w lime

I've found that there aren't too many bartenders who know what a Whiskey Sour is let alone how to make a good one so my go to is usually a Rye and Coke.

Miss Stein: That list made my ovaries twitch in disgust. Here's the only good -tini worth mentioning in a drinking thread.

[i759.photobucket.com image 336x448]

Note the lack of vermouth anywhere in the picture.

/okay, the olive was dipped into it off-camera


Buy some better vermouth? I've been burning through the Vya I have, though a good portion of it has gone into things I'm cooking. I probably ought to use the cheapo Martini & Rossi for that......

But at least you're not drinking straight vodak; that's a good thing.
 
2012-02-19 03:03:56 PM  
Drink what you want to drink people and do not care what others think.

If, however, the opinion of other people determines whether or not you will drink something and you want to try, for example, an appletini, then have the bartender make it in a different glass.

Top 10 drinks:

1. Bourbon on rocks
2. Single malt with a splash of water
3. Bourbon Manhattan
4. Dark rum on rocks with squeeze of lime
5. Old tequila, straight.
6. Irish whiskey, straight
7. ...........

I just realized that I only drink 6 drinks. I don't even drink beer anymore.
 
2012-02-19 03:21:50 PM  
I'm partial to ordering a horse's neck. My husband and I went on a cognac kick for awhile and we'd make incredible hulks with cognac, hpnotiq, and a splash of red bull.

I don't give a shiat if anyone wants to give me hell for ordering a girly/fruity drink. A) I'm a girl and B) I like my drinks to taste good. If anyone wants to argue that rum runners and lava flows are too frou-frou, then fark you. They're delicious.

/why yes, I keep a bottle of whipped cream vodak right next to my cognac and The Glenlivet 12. Sue me.

2012-02-19 03:22:58 PM  
My top 10 drinks in no particular order...

--Gin & Tonic with extra lime (Bombay Sapphire preferred)
--Vodka with a twist of lemon (Grey Goose or Absolut)
--Southern Comfort and Coke
--Manhattan
--Dry Martini (just a little bit of vermouth)
--Old Fashioned
--Scotch served neat
--Real margarita (gold tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and ice - no powered mix)
--Any quality beer (Duvel, Antigoon, Three Philosophers, Shotgun Betty, etc...).
--Any quality wine paired with the right meal (please let the reds breathe an hour before serving)

/I feel so snobby.
 
2012-02-19 03:24:28 PM  
In my home state, either out or at home: beer, scotch, wine.

At an all-inclusive in Mexico: whatever ghey fruity drink looks interesting and will get me hammered. :)

Seriously, if I'm not on a beach mixed drinks just don't float my boat. Put me on a beach and I'll drink anything, but of course since I'm usually at an all-inclusive the fact that it's "free" may have something to do with that. :)

This thread seems to attract extreme opinions.

It's all about the situation. Frozen drinks are fine...on the beach. Have that margarita at a Mexican restaurant, and if it's 10am, don't feel embarrassed about ordering a Bloody Mary. If you realllly want to go out and have a Cosmo, gather up your male hairdresser friends and have at it.

On the other hand, no matter how defiant and confidently you order that appletini, if you're at a bar trying to chat up some women, it's not going to work. You don't have to loudly order the neatest, single-maltiest scotch on the list to signify your mature palette, but that "fark you I'mma drink what I want" attitude won't get you as far as some of you think.

Also, where's the wine? Props to a guy who orders a full bodied red at a bar.

I disagree. I could drink at home or at a friend's home for 1/4th the price of going out. You drink at a bar to be social. What you do (and drink) when you're in public, especially when you're in an alcohol lubricated environment, matters.

I don't understand why people opt for a fruity, sweet gin and then ignore the vermouth. I like Bombay London Dry with a reasonable amount of vermouth (still not much). Oh, and gibsons and gimlets are real martinis, too, IMHO.
