Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

Couldn't help but begin the party room in a less PG style.

Tonight I decided to attempt to get to know the Negroni... Campari is certainly an acquired taste, and I don't think I've yet acquired it.

I like Negronis, but I agree, they take some getting used to.

I'm not drinking anything now, as it is 7:30 AM, here.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

I had a shot of whiskey, last night. Don't know what brand. It was a toast. Alcohol and I have become estranged, as of late. For me, it only serves as a half-measure. Or a sloppy excuse for a solution.And I'm not the kind of guy to take it easy with a drink. If I drink, I drink, and it wracks my nerves for the next week.

I used to have 'a tipple' after the night shift (T-20years) but now I am getting too old to risk it  sad
I now wait until my brain and body have recovered a bit...

Cheers!

Hi, apprentice. How are things going?

I haven't tried it yet, but I just bought a carton of Founder's Porter at a fancy beer store. I'll try it tonight while I'm watching the football game.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

@jdonaghy:  This is the reason I had reservations when I first saw this thread here.  I don't have any problem with people socially enjoying alcohol, but those who can will never be able to understand those of us who have more troubled relationships with alcohol; there's something fundamentally different about how our brains and bodies respond to the stuff.

I'm reaching for an end wrench right now, which is basically a mock-driver: OJ & tonic.

The Founder's Porter is the best tasting porter I have ever had. The flavor reminds me of molasses. Also, at 6.5% alcohol, they could have called it a stout.

I also cannot afford any of Ralfy's recommendations (not that I ever could more that a couple of them), but I like watching someone that really LOVES what he's doing.
Maybe it's because he isn't a pro (he's an undertaker in real life) his passion hasn't dwindled with the years...

Best part of making your own martinis is adding as many olives as you want smile

1 pt Cinzano and 6 pts suntory gin, and 6 olives

I usually put three in my martini, but I eat 3-4 more while I'm making it. wink

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

Had 8 cans of "moose urine" (cheap American lager) last night. sad  That's why I wasn't here last night; I've been trying to keep sober and promised myself I wouldn't forum while under the influence.  8 cans is a pretty big setback for me.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

I had a bottle of beer a month and a half ago.

Still my only drink of 2015 and yes, I did feel drunk afterwards...

Ooph, I see what you were saying about hesitance with this thread!  We can shut it down if it's a dangerous influence.

I'm fine with leaving it open.  I'm thinking about starting a recovery thread like the one we had at #! though.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

Recovery thread sounds like a great idea. It's not chemical addiction, but I was deeply addicted to MUDs for probably 10 years before Mmorpgs were a thing. Getting off those once and for all was really really hard.

After that I know myself well enough that I can't ever start paying any mmo, or my life will go to it completely. Probably ruin my marriage.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

My approach to alcoholic beverages is simple. The higher the proof, the better. DAMN DA TORPEDO'S !!!

btw: 24oz high gravity lager called Earthquake atm, it's 10% by volume, dirt cheap and they didn't name it that for nuttin. Yozwa fellows ! A few of these is equal to roughly an 8.3 on the richter scale.

In other alcohol related news ...

Have been thinking about home brew lately and perhaps setting up a still. Though don't tell the US ATF kay. big_smile

As technically for a still setup to be fully kosure x-freecitizen type person must obtain proper permits from the aforementioned alphabet soup agency to be completely legal in their pursuit of high octane DIY spirits.
