Also known as a Gin Buck. And it tastes like shiat compared to a Gin and Tonic.

Anyone else think gin tastes like soap? I've had Beefeater, Bombay Sapphire, couple other ones...they all sort of taste like soap to me. I can only drink it with tonic water, and then it's awesome for walking around the lake and getting drunk in public.

Mixed it with ginger ale once, found it hard to get the right proportions.

Try Hendricks - a small-batch Scottish gin that, instead of a bucket of juniper, uses cucumber and rose petals - makes a lovely martini.  Garnish with a paper-thin slice ofarke holding a rose petal to the inside of the glass.  Makes panties _vanish_.

The filter doesn't like the most common diminutive for cucumber, apparently.

I don't generally wear panties, but I'll give that a try and see if they vanish anyway.

I've been drinking Foghorns for the past couple of years. Good stuff...I like to use Vernor's to mellow it out. The 'problem' is this: for such a simple recipe they're somewhat obscure, and as such your typical drink-flinger won't know how to make one. It's certainly pretty easy to make, and most bartenders will have no problem making one once told what's in it (or looking it up behind the bar), but it still leaves me wondering whether I really want to continually pay a 500% mark-up to drink the first Foghorn someone's ever made.

...that said, I have more than once talked myself into ordering a Tom Collins so as not to confuse/overload a slammed bartender/waitress only to be faced with the exact same confusion. "What's in that??" "What kind of Vodka do you want?". Seriously, you're tending/serving bar and have never heard of a GOTdamned Tom Collins?!?

looka?
 
2014-07-04 05:31:03 PM
I would also add that my favorite part about drinking a foghorn is that any time anyone asks-about/mentions what your drinking you can immediately respond by bellowing out your impression of a foghorn, as loud as possible.

I'm not sure why, but those are common here, not sure why, but several bars feature them, copper mugs and all.

/ginger beer is my new favorite ingredient

I guess this answers the age old question...

"If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make foghorns outta?"

Seems like a variant on a tried and true classic.

you would be amazed. in most venues, the patrons are idiots, as well as the staff.  there are great swaths of this nation that don't realize that "frozen" is not the common form of delivery for a daiquiri or a margarita.

there are three common forms of the collins, the Tom (gin) the John (bourbon) or Vodak (obvious) with fresh lemon, simple syrup, and a splash of soda.

of course, most of the time, the bartender is just going to hit you with gin, or bourbon, sour mix and soda.

if it's happy hour, I wont argue, but If I'm paying full price, I will be specific.

and of course.. one should never order any drink if you don't know how to make it yourself. particularly if the bar is busy.

I will pretty much accept that any time, as long as I'm drinking from the well.

 I tried to live with the Tom Collins as what I call my lowest-common-denominator drink for a good while...it's easy to make, easy to drink, and should be a cheap well drink at every bar, no matter how busy or clueless, so that was my go-to when I was in a dive, or had to stand in line for a half-hour at a packed bar or whatever. Eventually I had to move on though, as I still ran into places/people who couldn't/wouldn't make it, so I went with the ol' Greyhound....two ingredients, cheap, easy....yet still less than 100% success, since some bars don't keep (enough) grapefruit juice around. I've had to finally settle on the Vodka Sour. *sigh*. It's just not very exciting....but it is truly the lowest-common-denominator: everybody can make a vodka sour, it tastes exactly the same in every bar (like shiatty sour mix!), it's always cheap, and I can drink a dozen of them with less pain that comes from comparably-shiatty gin or whiskey.

Foghorn is a great drink... I usually omit the lime juice/wedge, ice and ginger ale/beer and replace the gin with Lagavulin 16.  Enjoy with a plate of red meat.
