Also.. I love you, sushi. Even more than my booze. I see threads I made years ago still occasionally bumped. Even my ugly mug was once posted here. Eh.. whatever. Best wishes to all the souls here.
I too love alcohol! I usually drink Whisky, but I also enjoy cognac and akevitt. I had some armagnac today.
I also love mead, but the brewery behind my favourite one went out of business. I haven't had any mead since then. It was nice and dry, without added flavours from fruit juice. I love cider too, usually the stronger varieties.
When mixing drinks, I stick to simple ones like gin and tonic and white russian. I always have whisky on hand. I think I will try whisky sour as well.
I usually drink beer (Belgian and Czech beers are the shit), but I will not say no to a good rum or whisky.
good taste sushi, wheat beer is oishii indeed
I just got cocktail codex and liquid intelligence. Excited to deep dive into the world of alcoholism!
I'd really like to enjoy being tipsy or drunk but when I'm alone I feel like I can't think straight, play drums nor video games :(
Comfy internet drunks
Huh, I've always felt that Gekkeikan was a middle of the road brand. Most people I know (self included) consider Hakutsuru to be one of the best sakes in the mid-low price range. Among the cheaper end sake I was always a fan of Kurosawa but it may be something of an acquired taste.
Thinking about making a cocktail that is so big it fills my entire 32oz (950ml) mug. Will update if I do.
Couple of tips:
1) Eat before and during drinking. Food makes you less drunk, and water makes you less hungover. Stay hydrated!
2) Keep an eye out for how your friends are acting. If your friends are drunk, you might start feeling drunk, even if you aren't. Just being conscious of it will help reduce the effect.
3) Get tested for ethanol allergy, if you feel sick after a small amount of alcohol, it could be an allergy.
4) Don't mix different spirits. Pick one type of alcohol, and stick with that all night, keeping careful track of your number of drinks.
Have fun and stay safe!
drank a lot on tuesday, thursday and yesterday and tbh i can't do it anymore lol
i feel kinda sick
guinness supremacy btw
i love alcohol so much i had to stop drinking it :(
Had wine for the first time and hated it. I’m sorry alcohol drinkers but I don’t think this is for me.
I like red wine and especially dessert red wine like port
But white whine is not my thing
holy shit that guy is DEAD
White wine. The *flavor*, like, when it initially hit my tongue, was fine. But it was the alcohol-y aftertaste I hated.
Don't drink anymore but when I did it was a lot of bourbon sours, Dark and Stormy (mixed drink), gin & tonic and Belgian or stout beers. Red wine was fine but I wasn't heavy into it. I had a wild turkey phase at one point in college.
I found out that Mtn Dew was a mixer for whiskey, so I found some bourbon and decided to mix it with a partial can of Mtn Dew. It's good. In fact, it's great! The Mtn Dew makes it sweet enough, but the bourbon adds its own flavor. It's not too sweet, not to alcohol-y. I'm sad that the Mtn Dew has like, 40g of sugar, but I guess if you're drinking alcohol, you're not really doing anything healthy. Now, I'm wondering if I can do this with some other kind of drink.
Blegh, no. I've tried it, and it's the crummiest highball ever. I'll take my jack and coke.
I got gifted a 3 litre jack daniel's bottle. I usually drink it without anything or with ice. Do you have some ideas what can i mix it with?
Could also make whiskey highballs, old fashioneds, or manhattans. Depends on what else you have on hand.
Eh, that's just a splash of coffee liquor away from being a white kentuckyan. Alternatively, actual coffee makes it just a regular old irish coffee.
Is it any more strange than whiskey + egg (whiskey sour)?
(yes it is)
I just tried mixing bourbon with Monster, and it was absolutely the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted. It was as if someone tried to sterilize a cup of vomit by chlorinating it like a swimming pool. Whiskey and energy drinks are two things that I hate wasting, but I absolutely had to pour that out as soon as I took a sip. Would not recommend.
Anyway, I'm having an old fashioned now and it's good.
Well, I didn't know how bad it was going to be until I tried it. I know now, though, and I've spread that knowledge with some strangers on the internet so that hopefully I can prevent others from making the same mistake.
I am a recovering alcoholic but I have been drunk only once in the past two months. I've been able to have some light ciders (young Henry's cloudy apple cider). Every day is a fight against wanting to get drunk but I've done well not to!
The fight against alcohol is tough but I think it's worth it. I've taken a likening to whiskey for a while and now it has been two and a half weeks since I last took a sip.
I think it helps me develop strength as a person to not indulge in it. Wish you the best sushi.
It's just too bad there always seems to be a hurt you have to grab along with the good, somehow, if you're a certain kind of person
Would really have liked to meet again on a date as sober people
He did ask for my number, but I havent heard from him yet. I know that it's too early to say for certain, but if I'm afraid to have hope, and my rationality wants to think, if he wanted to reach out while sober he'd done so by now
Sorry to sadpost, just, heck
I've begun to like it a lot more. It's boozy, but not overpowering like drinking it neat. I might get some coke and try a jack and coke. I tried it one time, but I never really cared for it, so maybe I'll like it more than Mtn Dew. I like mine more on the boozy side since the added flavors gets rid of the sugary taste of the soda.
In other news, I've gone to two tastings in the past two week. I took a trip to Kentucky and tasted some bourbon whiskeys from Buffalo Trace and Evan Williams. I had went to four distilleries, toured one, and sampled from two (the ones I've named). I tried a 12 year old bourbon at Evan Williams. It was pretty smooth, but like, 100 dollars and only available at the end of tours. I might try some more mixed drinks if I get more whiskey. I really don't like the pure flavor of any whiskey. I really don't get those "tobacco, dark chocolate, etc." vibes from it. Just oak, caramel, and alcohol. Send suggestions if you want. I usually get Jim Beam, which is also a distillery I visited in Kentucky.
have you tried any scotch?
If you're mixing stick with cheap whiskeys. There's no point in buying high end unless you like to drink it straight.
Throwing my vote in for apple juice as best bourbon mixer.
Go on, try it, you know it's good
I agree if we are talking about these sorts of drinks but there are plenty of cocktails that work extremely well with high end whiskey. The key is picking ones where the whiskey itself is the star of the show.
Off the top of my head old fashioneds, manhattans, and japanese highballs all work wonders with good whiskey.
I'll do you one better: hot toddy with heated apple juice instead of water.
This. Old fashioneds in particular are basically whiskey with a bit of seasoning. If anything, drinking straight whiskey without making an old fashioned just tastes kind of bland to me, like food without any salt or spices.
I keep sober most times because alcohol hurts to drink ;_;
But once in a while it’s nice to have a cooler with friends.
Seeing as it's harvest season, apple cider is the way for autumnal feels.
They're the most eco-friendly liquor, not only cause they're in season now, but also cause apples happen to grow on trees. Those big orchards can even make a net positive.
The ones with some percentage of cider apples are worth trying if you can find them easily. They're often less acidic, more layered, can be real flowery and honeyed, or earthy and funky, lots of different flavors possible.
I had a wild fermented cider not long ago
It was good! But I think I prefer the style in beers
Speaking of beer, I hear some folks from Münich have all these barrels of lager they've been holding onto since March for this big do in a meadow, so that's another seasonal choice.
>>16794>Those big orchards can even make a net positive.
Oh boy here we go.
Large apple tree monocultures where weeds have to be kept at bay and sprayed with pesticides is all but "eco-friendly", even if they are fertilized with organic matter mulch and organic pesticides, they inhibit biodiversity and are artificially kept at fixed stage of succession.
I've misspoken, didn't intend to mislead, you're right.
To minimize your impact you'd have to stick to the older traditional orchards such as in Normandy, or similar cideries like Ramborn in Luxembourg who claims to be carbon negative and doesn't use pesticides at all.
I've been trying to cut back on the drinking to help my weight loss
I used to drink beer or cocktails almost every day but now it's just a once or twice a week thing
Still love a good drink
Of course it would be easy to think monocltural orchards are net positives, given the lack of information on such matters in the public knowledge.
I reckon it would be hard to make a profitable fruit operation in truly sustainable conditions. I would know.
