Can't it be both?
See, that happened with me and
Alligator, too! We really liked it when it was in a freshly unused glass, but apparently when it touches any other liquor, it gets jealous and starts burning your insides and you don't understand why it gets so angry when you don't call at two in the morning to ask about its day!
I have determined that Celtic Honey isn't actually that good. My methods may have included consuming irresponsible amounts of the isubstance in question.
Huh, apparently between the two beers, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey, and copious Celtic Honey, I've had enough that I didn't catch "isubstance" before I posted it.
I find it mildly perplexing but pretty cute that some of you guys keep commenting that drinking straight liquor has a bit of warmth to it. It's liquor! The tingling means it's working!
See, there's a difference between "a bit of warmth" and "damn, baby, what did I do to deserve this?" My impression is that Wild Turkey just doesn't play well with others.
Very tasty on its own, though.
You guys are all correct, WTAH is a jealous god. So is JDTH by the way. My guess is their blends are rather delicately "tuned" with the honey so other flavors in there will counter it and enhance the booziness; kind of like eating sweet milk chocolate then drinking merlot. It tastes like straight alcohol because the sugar pre-conditioned your taste buds.
To be honest, I think part of the reason I didn't care for the Drambuie and Celtic is because we were tasting with other stuff. There will have to be a better controlled round two, for science.
You know how when you see someone getting kicked in the crotch your body tenses up? My tongue just did that. Ugh.
I am on my second (and last) rum and Coke. there may be a beer after.
See, I actually loved the way JDTH blended with the cinnamon. We shall have to test this theory. FOR SCIENCE.
I'm drinking some pretty nice chardonnay that I was gifted around New Year. I'm not that much of a wine person (generally preferring beer), but this is a really good one, fresh and fruity; perfect for such a warm night.
It's so good in fact, that I've demolished half of the bottle already. Damn.
You know who to call.
In the interests of science I mixed The Kraken with some mango juice.
Science can suck it - that was awful.
I haven't had a good martini in years. Until tonight.
I ordered a cocktail at Shigezo (fucking awesome Japanese restaurant in Portland) called the Edo Martini. Bombay Sapphire, an unnamed sake (but since it was served cold it was a good one), and a hard umeboshi.
I would never have predicted that as a good mix but holy shit that is a cocktail. A good gin martini that you sip, and just fucking savor for a while before swallowing and the flavors dance and GOD DAMN.
Apparently the combination of oxycodone and one Guinness stout makes me miss notes - and as the main melody instrument, this is not a good thing. Oddly, though, the nights when I've been taking shots of JDTH during ceili have been just fine. Weird.
You're on Oxycodone and Guiness?
No wonder you find dating Aaron tolerable.
Woo boy. All I've eaten today is a sausage croissant this morning, and then the chocolate I just ate now, with a Unibroue La Fin Du Monde because I finally got my sorry ass to the beer store. Holy crap am I tipsy. Maybe I should make some ramen or something...
Right now I am sitting somewhere in the city of sf.. I think on geary st. I an so drunk too. I houldmt had those drinks at th office party. Now I don't care. Ehich thread to posy in? I was lucky to log in the first try. Eben.though things seem good I fel like everything is bad. To example, the only outlet I have isf mildly anonymous posts in a message forum!
I hate and I judge and I condemn because out makes me berserk better about my own prksonsl fsilings, which are many. There is nothing if real value excepthoho another drunk post and. Vanity of vankties, all is vanity. And tonight she is with somebody else because I am notenough. And I don't car e.
A cravkhead just waked by and start to ask me for some change Then her looked up in my face and stop because hr is b etter off. Thefe is econ 101 for you. My utility curve hs flatline
What time is work tomorrow maube? No sir I don't newd a dolar but this is an existential crisis can you spare some answers
I'm nauseous and not looking forward t o the next few hours. This sucks.
Note to self: if been drinking and if offered snuff make sure it isn't the strong kind
If it's white and powdery it's not snuff at all, man.
We got out late in KC. In some pizza place and they are playing Canadian white rapper Snow. My coworkers have headed back to the hotel. I am dancing in place just living it.
SCHNAPPS AND COKE! SCHNAPPS AND COKE! SCHNAPPS AND COKE!
Sometimes, I really think making this thread was a bad, bad idea
OR AN AMAZING ONE
This is amazing.
I can't believe I forgot to mention this story. My first bad drink.
Okay, so my mom and I go to this Japanese restaurant, right? Turns out it's still happy hour, so after we eat, I get a basic green apple martini. The thing that is basically "Bartending 101". Get it in this plastic-ass thing, but whatever.
it tasted soooooo bad
Like, there was apple flavoring in it, but it was definitely the wrong kind. And you could taste the alcohol; it was really strong. My mom had an itty-bitty sip and was acting like an idiot after a while. Then again, she's a lightweight so... But I know it had something funky going on when I was having issues. Got home and knocked right the fuck out. I dunno, when I think "green apple martini", I think something with a bright green kind of apple taste. This tasted like...like someone took a real life apple, knocked out about 70% of the flavor in it, and decided that was worth putting in drinks.
eugh. never again.
Okay so over the last four hours Elyscape and I have killed about a bottle of Kraken. I am still far too sober but fuck it I need sleep.
god bless the both of you.
It's probably good for us to remember the really low days. They make the "meh" days seem OK.
Bro love, mo' love.
Nevermind all that, just had a rough couple days and made some ill-advised drink choices that night. The panhandling junker did stop in the middle of his pitch and decide to just keep on walking, though. Kinda funny in hindsight.
I really want a drink, but I know that I probably shouldn't drink and...
This is the saddest feeling.
note: soju is NOT an acceptable substitute for crown royal
note2: given enough soju you do not care about the previous note.
You know what's better than two margaritas?
Two sangria margaritas.
Yes, I have the alcohol tolerance of a stunned rabbit. But that's okay. I used to be able to get sloshed on a single bottle of beer.
In related news, it is only through woozy self-control that I am able to restrain myself from posting randomly in other threads about Latin grammar because my god that stuff is interesting, let me tell you.
(Don't let me tell you. That's a bad idea. It's never as interesting to other people, and why do I rant about the grammar, anyway? I'm more of a literature type than a grammar type. Maybe a syntax type. I love syntax. It's even a good word. Syyyyyyntaxxxxxx.)
Drunk and out with the wife for her 40th. She allows me to leer a bit as long as it is. It too long. Woohoo.
At a bar that actually has people close to our age. We both still look younger so it is very comfort ale. Cover band that actually matches her tastes.
Holy fuck was tonight made of bad decisions but it doesn't matter I dont even care about punctuation fuck the rules!
Well hey, steady on mate. You doing out alright? Safe like,
Demon G Sides un?
