Eirik: skullkrusher: Karac: 43. George W. Bush: Diet cola with a slice of lemon

Who the hell puts lemon slices in diet cola? I realize he's a recovering alcoholic, but that's just weird.

a shiatload of people?

I do. I'm diabetic so don't want to deal with the sugar in regular soda, but don't always like the taste of diet coke or diet pepsi. A slice of lemon or lime helps mask it a bit.

/Prefers Coke Zero.


yeah, not weird in the slightest. If I order a diet coke when I'm out I'll ask for lemon. Don't drink it with lemon at home.

A pint of Seagrams and a can of juice seemed like a very, very popular buy at the liquor stores in Baltimore.

Yeah, Grant spent a good portion of his adult life falling down drunk.  A seasoned drunk won't get there with champagne and fruit punch.

Ok, for starters, TR didn't drink, which I was honestly disappointed about when I read his biography. Secondly, the Ward 8 was invented in Boston at a (former) bar called Locke-Ober. Hell, the damn drink is supposed to be garnished with a mini Mass state flag

Oh come on.  Yes, we all know he was an alchy.  So at least tell us what he drank before he turned into a quitter.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if the President still went to AA meetings while he was President?


I've heard "Friends of Bill" refer to Dubya as a "white-knuckle drunk," which is what the AAers refer to someone who quit drinking without AA. I don't think Dubya was AA.

Lyndon Johnson's favorite way to relax was to down a fifth of Cutty Sark, wash it down with a 6-pack of pearl beer, and drive around at 120+ mph in a Lincoln Continental with a 460 4--barrel and dual exhausts, which would top out north of 140 mph.

Press covered it up, as usual.

The NYT style guide disagrees with you:

whiskey(s). The general term covers bourbon, rye, Scotch and other liquors distilled from a mash of grain. For consistency, use this spelling even for liquors (typically Scotch) labeled whisky.

/"whiskey" is used everywhere except for Canada and Scotland


Do some research first will you.
http://www.masterofmalt.com/whisky-or-whiskey/ "The spelling of whisky, or whiskey, differs geographically. As a rule, American and Irish prefer 'whiskey' and the Scots, Canadians and the rest of the world's single malt makers prefer 'whisky'.  "

/green fairies


absinthe is not the big of a deal. I have a bottle of the stuff in my house that was distilled in strict accordance with some 19th century recipe. absinthe does not cause hallucinations. the wormwood content is extremely low. however, it will, in sufficient quantities, bring about all the effects of drunkenness.

/ in a sazerac, you only have a dash of absinthe. like you basically just coat the glass.
// many fancy-schmancy drink places are making sazeracs with absinthe. personally, i think herbsainte will do the trick, and it's a little bit cheaper for a mixer. good absinthe is best under the drip method.
/// absinthe just got the reefer madness treatment back in the day, that's why the urban myth of tripping and green faeries exist. the real green faerie is the consistency of absinthe as you add the correct amount of cold water to it. at the right moment, it becomes very cloudy. that's the green faerie. a matter of taste and appearance in the preparation of the drink

I have also imbibed in a case of that. The porter is delicious. Wasn't a huge fan of the spruce but still better than 95% of the other microbrew experiments out there.
