Very haram thread sushi
They actually add gold into it? Is it for flavor, appearance, or something else, since I can't imagine that that's cheap?
Yes, it is. The drink is from a time when alchemy was a big thing. Gold was believed to offer positive effects on the human body.
Nowadays I guess they do it for the looks and as a stand-out marketing scheme. It is a really small amount per bottle and one of them is still cheaper than most whiskey.
I bought Amarula some weeks ago, I'm looking for a drink made with that.
Or maybe I'll drink it on it's own.
It sounds pretty delicious. Sounds like it worth trying at least once.>>809
I imagine any recipe that uses a milk/cream based liqueur could use Amarula.
Murphys is tasty.
Drinking a Corona because it what's in my parents fridge. Would really love some Abita Purple Haze or Murphy's stout or a Moscow mule or Sobieski vodka, but don't wanna drive to the liquor store or encourage myself to drink.
Drinking wine because the hangover is better than beer, and it's harder to destroy myself than with vodka.
Mostly beer and cider, mostly cheap and local. And I add baileys or whiskey in my coffee from time to time, and top ice cream with it.
That's it. Can't stomach wine, it's just spoiled grape juice for me; and can't stotmach unblended 40 abv drinks, they all stink ethanol. Except for this one time someone treated me to a shot of whiskey and it was delicious, a bit sweet and smokey, but not too much, and without this ethanol stink. And I didn't have an opportunity to ask what brand and age it was. And I will never know the name of this happiness juice.
I often end up just drinking whatever I have left over, meaning mostly hard liquor (bourbon) because it doesn't spoil. I really like white, and to a lesser extent rosé wine. Finally, mixed drinks are really fun to make, but I don't have the tools or bar for it at the moment.
Beer is alright, but I don't get the drunk feeling as quick so it just seems kind of pointless. Dark beer is really good though.
Was experimenting with a few different types of drinks for the past few months. I only care about getting drunk really. I liked sake like a weeb but for some reason way cheaper beer got me way more drunk way faster. I think it's true what they say about the bubbles, fuck the alcohol content, I wasted my damn money. Recently I discovered this Bud brand, forgot the name I think it was Bud light rita. The can said it had a content around or higher than some other malt-liqeur brands and it tastes decent so it seems to be the best go to choice. Also it's cheaper. I heard of some extremely cheap high alcohol sweet drinks in Japan that could easily be abused by people, perhaps it's the western equivalent?
Similar to me I think.
I mostly stick with whisky/whiskey and some rum. Akevitt is nice also, but I mostly drink that during the holidays. These days I'm drinking a bottle of Nikka Coffey Grain whiskey. Rum and some bourbons like the one from Bulleit is nice on days where I want something sweeter.
I drink most of my alcohols neat, not to be some kind of pretentious purist, but I like to keep things simple. I also enjoy the taste of it without mixing anything, so I never really think about making a mixed drink. Adding half a teaspoon of water is sometimes nice tho.
Got drunk on mexican restaurant margaritas and low grade vodka shots tonight. Saw a few friends I haven't seen in a while. Fun night all around.
If you just want to get plastered for cheap and nothing else matters, make your own. Water, sugar and yeast gets you some ghetto ass sugar wine that will get you absolutely pulverized for a long time for a couple bucks. It can be surprisingly palatable, but it does need patience as the fermentation takes around a couple weeks and you need to siphon it a few times to get rid of the yeasty nastiness.
I just remembered four lokos exist, it will probably kill me though.
We had our first snow of the year last night. When I get home from work today I'm going to mix myself a tall mug of hot toddy using bourbon, honey, and raspberry tea. >>4972
I've been getting into gin recently, but don't know anyone irl who enjoys it regularly. Do you have any particular bottles you'd recommend?
Ingesting gold was a sign of wealth.
, and I'm not sure how wide their distro is, but I've got a bottle of Twisted Path Distillery Organic Gin that I think is neat. It's kinda like if someone described Gin to someone else without specifically saying all the plants.
Not too different than a standard Gin, but noticeable. It's got "Honeybush, cinnamon, and … hops"
I checked their website and it doesn't look like they have any distributors in my area sadly. The idea of a gin with cinnamon and hops is interesting though, I'll see if I can find an equivalent here.
I've been drinking kombucha lately. It's been a tasty adventure. Soon, I'll make my own.
I like cocktails, one of my fav is the White Russian (vodka + milk + coffee liquor). Otherwise I drink beer or wine, usually red.>>829
Corona is super refreshing, too bad it's expensive.
I can help you with that, try making some using coffee instead of tea.
My usual is Captain Morgan's with diet coke and a slice of lime. I also really like whiskey. I'm going to Germany soon and I can't wait to try some weissbiers that I can't buy at home.
Didn't have time to get anything for this friday night, so I'm writing this instead as a substitute. I mainly drink beer, it's what I enjoy most and one beer lasts longer than a drink or straight pour of something. I do enjoy rum for more festive occasions, and during holidays I like to get some whiskey to sip on in the evening, but I don't like getting drunk on those that much. Not wine either. Like the taste of all three very much, but the inebriation feels hollow somehow. I guess there's something in the hops or something that's essential for my enjoyment.
My go-to beers I think are Lagunitas Maximus, any of Fullers stuff, Newcastles and Baron Trenck.
Also have two beers I've only drunk once but that I still remember dearly.
A Rochefort, don't remember which number, bought two once as a birthday gift to myself and goddamn. Beautiful, so much depth but also some bright glares, sweet like some dried fruit, almost spicy (not as in hot). Almost wept over that I got to taste something so amazing, someone as insignificant as me.
The other is Lagunitas Dark Swan, still haven't tasted anything like it, which makes sense since it's brewed very differently. Very large, quite sour (in an unusual but good & tasty way).
I've had a cinnamon whiskey like that with the gold flakes. Its also german, not sure of the name but I think its Goldenschlaager or something. Nothing makes you feel more bougie than drinking gold.>>5309
Kombucha is delicious. I need to make my way over to my local kombucha bar (can't believe my city has one) and pick up a growler soon.
Tonight I'm drinking on some Heaven Hill bourbon amnd Mountain Dew made with real sugar. Little known fact is mountain dew was created as a mixer for whiskey. If you haven't had it mixed like that you will be surprised.
Corona is beer for california rolls. No offense sushi roll.
I'm drinking my afternoon coffee.
Water is underrated
Dont drink water, fish fuck in it.
Carlsberg have reformulated their beer in the UK, tbh it still tastes like standard Carlsberg, but to their credit, less shit. It used to be fucking undrinkable if it was anything less than ice cold, but now it's actually alright even after about 20 minutes out of the fridge.
Not exactly going to stop people from drinking IPAs which are all the rage now, but that shit is expensive.
(im 19 pls dont ban me)
not in australia
you're legal down here
Not in… 157 other countries. Thanks for nothing, Iceland.
(I live in the States so I understand the feels)
Leftover cabernet from yesterday. It's alright.
Vodka and sprite
I have a drinking problem
I'm so drunk I'm afraid of closing my eyes for too long.
I'm trying to hold off booze for this week.
Some local lager that's actually not too bad, but it's all I had
I got to have some mead at a party last night. I liked it.
A nice capp in a local coffee house. The froth was made a bit thin, like what you usually expext from a flat white.
Please stop rejecting my posts, sushigirl.
On my 6th Stella right now. Not the biggest fan of lagers but at least this is drinkable and it's free. It's either this or the bottle of Malort I bought when I went to Chicago months ago so I really can't complain.
Just drinking a bottle of water.
That mac n cheese sounds interesting. Can you go into detail about the recipe?
1x microwave cheese shells 1x shot of whiskey and however many cocktail sausages you want
only one with a most refined palette can savor this decadence
Today, I drank a lot of beer and listened to old music/old videos and cried. I went out specifically and called an uber for the way back to get more beer because I didn't feel drunk enough to cry. Please don't be like me. Don't drink alcohol if you know it's a problem for you.
Drinking some V8 juice.
Sailor Jerry rum and coke zero.
It's pretty shitty but it works to get me tipsy and makes socializing easier. Gonna have some fun in VR tonight, hopefully at least.
Juice from a couple oranges, a cup of water, and about an ounce or two of gin I'm not sure.
I usually use tangerine juice but not this time
I like to do juice from half a grapefruit, 50gr ice and 50mil gin.
a few years back I caned half a bottle of wine, half a bottle of aldi scotch, and a quarter or so of bells, basically by accident. got insanely drunk by myself in my uni room and incoherently babbled on twitter and messages to my friends, changed my phone wallpaper to a pic of short haired akemi homura, and stared at my anime pics folder before passing out on the bed. all the night before a test. god I couldn't touch whisky for about a week, and still don't know if I can touch highland black again.
still a treasured memory of mine though, I kept the wallpaper for a while.
I have a couple of japanese whisky's in, but today I'm drinking Augustiner brau export that I found in booths. It reminds me of growing up visiting my dads house in bavaria and drinking beer on the deck of a mountain hut looking over the alps. Here's a pic of a bird I took from one of said decks.
Tonight I am partaking in some Naturdays. Im in college and they're cheap, plus I like the taste so I cant really complain.
I'm in awe of the skill to portray water with cell shading.
that's basically just a bloody mary but yeah it does taste good
Trying to stop drinking so heavily. I've been successful so far, haven't had any alcohol alone or gotten really drunk in a couple of months. Been drinking a lot of flavored seltzer water to fill the cravings for a refreshing drink. I'm a lot happier these days, instead of coming home, getting drunk, then spending the next day hungover, I'm actually able to devote time to my hobbies. When I watch something, I don't forget everything the next day. I still have constant dry mouth though, guess that wasn't just from the alcohol.
Just drinking some Arizona tea tonight. Though I've been drinking a lot of White Russians lately, (Vodka, kahlua, and cream).
On the afternoon I made some orange juice.
Haven't had a drink in a long time, but I love whiskey. I'll probably buy a bottle of Lot 40 next time I do.
I've been drinking my every day off recently.
I had coke with a shot of cranberry juice for lunch. It was quite good.
I usually drink water. Jasmine green tea if I want to feel comfy. Lime and soda if I'm out and want to feel fancy.
Hi. I had a whiskey and sparkling water earlier. It took the edge off but I ended up feeling too sleepy.
Any idea what the guys in the bars put in a whisky sour? I know for fucking sure that they never ever put egg whites in there.
I want to have a comfy whiskey longdrink/ cocktail. Any other recommendations?
Decent barmens in decent places put egg whites in a whiskey sour.
And it's delicious.
Try greyhound, equal parts of whiskey, ice and grapefruit fresh, mixed in a glass.
>>7139>decent barmen in decent places
Too poor for that and most are probably scared of raw egg whites. It sucks man.
Greyhound sounds nice! Does any el-cheapo whiskey work well? Otherwise i'd prolly buy a bottle of Jameson.
It's not supposed to be expensive. Also farmed eggs are nearly safe, if you live in the first or second world.
I screwed up, I'm sorry. It's made with vodka/gin, not whiskey.
I live in Germany so that should be fine I suppose.
Vodka/Gin works aswell. I got some cheap vodka and expensive gin at home so I'll try vodka/grapefruit first.
What are your favourite drinks?
I had two bottles of Banrock Station pink moscato tonight.>>7188
Doubling up on >>7548
Got too curious and had to open the other one too, Tamnavulin Sherry Cask.
It's delicious, but very sweet, could be cloying at the wrong time but right now it really hit the spot.
Really satisfies, the Tomintoul I could see myself drinking throughout a party or something but this you don't want more than one glass of.
I tried some new gin recently because I was in the mood for some gin and tonics, it's really good. Makes a good martini as well. Pic related, it's got cucumber and acai in it, quite tasty.>>7548>>7549
Very nice, I love peaty scotches, and scotch in general. My go to is Laphroaig, or Glenfiddich for something without the peat.
That's a lotta gin lovers here
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple. I wish there were more options for 700ml drinks besides beer. I miss Japan's canned high balls.
dat dere evan williams プラスチック bottle with seltzer water as well as diet coke
a six pack and cheap shit in tall cans from the drug store.
I bought some Absinthe to try. It's really good but also quite strong, and quite sweet. Like drinking licorice candy or something. Do people really dissolve sugar into this? The bottle I got came with the fancy spoon and everything so I'll have to try it.
You're supposed to water it down with ice water that is slowly run over a sugar cube that is held above the glass using that fork. The sugar should react with something in the absinthe and turn it a cloudy green if your absinthe is using the real ingredients. The effect is really cool! It's not something like whiskey where you drink it straight. You can also use it in cocktails like the corpse reviver #2. I've heard of people mixing absinthe with Mexican Coke as well. Any cola with real sugar should work and cause that reaction that turns it cloudy.
Yeah I read as much. I've yet to try it that way but I've also looked up some neat cocktails to make with it. I don't have the right kind of bitters to make a proper Sazerac but I'll likely try anyways. Also found this which is interesting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_in_the_Afternoon_(cocktail)
Wine is a shit tier drink to get smashed with. Vodka is much better
I'm drinking that Death in the Afternoon cocktail now
It's pretty good so long as you like anise flavors. I do, so hooray. The stuff definitely clouded up once I poured the champagne in.
I started having shower beers once or twice a week after my runs. Feels good man.
I too have been doing the shower beer thing lately. It really is extra satisfying when tired and sweaty.
Calvados is really good.
I've had a second? or third? bottle of wine in my life yesterday. Not a wine person. A bottle of cheap Frivolo Prosecco. It was fine, achqchually. We split it with my so and had lots of fun afterwards.
I'm a sailor and I can't drink anything for weeks at a time so when I'm onshore I drink beer all day. Local brews usually but I picked up Leinenkugel's fall Shandy or whatever and it's pretty tasty. Like a light pumpkin ale.
Now that it's getting colder I'm starting to crave some hot spiked chocolate. Rum is my goto, tried whisky once but wasn't as good a fit. But went looking online for other tips for things to try, and apparently red wine hot chocolate is a thing?
Just imagining it makes me feel like it'd give one a stomach upset, dunno why.
how about hot buttered whiskey or rum?
cream together butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, and whisk that into a shot of liquor mixed with an equal amount or slightly less hot water.
It's all to taste, but I prefer equal parts butter and brown sugar, and just a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Then probably a tablespoon into a shot of Makers Mark and slightly less than a shot of hot water.
You can mix it up in a bowl and keep it in your fridge, ready to scoop out a tablespoon and whisk it into the liquid when you want.
Water is the best, only thing I drink. People think it's weird that I drink tap water but I never understood why.
What? Do they drink from a pond with gazelles or something?
I am having a blonde ale tonight. Thinking recently I should eat less and drink more.
I've been on the all-beer diet for a while myself. I lost 60 pounds since July and feel better than I've ever felt.
I thought you were joking but I looked it up and sure enough it's a thing. Maybe I should try it.
Had the last pour of these >>7548
>>7549 tonight, they kept me good company. Gotta figure out what I want to replace them with though.
Good taste sushi roll, Athena is super pretty
Never seen that whisky before but you make it sound tasty
Dogfish Head's IPAs are really rich, like a heavy winter porter almost. I like it sometimes but not always. I love their SeaQuench sour though. Great beer for hot weather.
Can really rec Timmermans Kriek Lambicus on the note of lambics. Really tangy and flavourful. Super delicious if you like cherries.
Thanks, I'll look for it next time I go to the liquor store. I've never had this kind of beer so I want to try more.
here with an update.
Tried all of them and I still do not like beer even though the last time I tried them was at the end of my teens.
I would like to say something about them but the only thing I can say is that they all have a bitter smell and taste. I usually like bitter stuff but somehow beer just disgusts me.
I tend to prefer tea and I used to make tea all the time (to the point where I could a perfect cup of Irish breakfast practically through sheer muscle memory), but it's been a while since I've actually made any. I think I just ran out of leaves one time and then never bothered ordering more. Meanwhile you can just go to the store to get decent coffee beans, and nowadays I drink about 4-6 cups of coffee a day. I should order some tea leaves soon.
I drink chamomile, or rooibos tea often; with brown sugar and cream.
I'm enjoying Monster Dragon Teas (even though energy drinks don't give me any energy), but the caffeine and additives hurt my stomach. Any recommendations on sweetened canned teas that don't have lethal amounts of caffeine in them would be appreciated.
Wintermelon tea is something I like a lot. Around here I only get them at asian stores though.
It's almost 5 am where I live. Woke up a couple of hours ago, been having trouble sleeping. Made myself a Cappuccino, warmed me up ( ´ ▽ ` )
I drank a lot of beer tonight on Christmas eve. Maybe too much?
Gonna sleep soon
I had eggnog for the first time over the weekend. It smells disgusting (reminded me of creamy tequila in the worst way) but tasted amazing! It was even good in coffee. I was a little worried the heat of the coffee would make the raw egg Cook but not at all.
That's a really fun pdf, I'd love to see a more modern version because I only recognize maybe half those references, and I've seen even less.
My favorite cocktails to make at the moment are a Manhattan and a Negroni.
I'm not much of a coffee drinker, and all I usually make for tea is plain green tea.
I've been enjoying making cocktails recently since I bought some stuff for it but I have to agree that beer is just the best. A true friend of a beverage.
Beer is to me what soda is to many other people. It's sad how few places there are you can just drink it causally with your meal or for thirst, and where you can it's often way marked up or closely scrutinized. It's not like a single beer or a glass of wine is enough to impair most people.
I think this now, but when I first drank beer, I remember not liking it much. I think I prefer hard liquor diluted in hot water, but it's hard/more expensive to buy in smaller quantities to drink that way.
I'm definitely going to buy some really malty beer today. Still on vacation for another week… Wanna get a huuuuge bottle of something I haven't tried. Or default to more Chimay like usual.>>10137
I should really get a blender. Smoothies are very expensive premade, but with a blender, I'd drown in that stuff.
I checked, they don't have it here. Shame. They have the red Liefmans Kriek Brut, but that seems to be the only one. Booo.
again, having another pour of the whisky. Much better now, guessing that pouring the instant after opening was the issue. Still a very unique taste though. If I really think about it I can see the red wine influence, but if I'm just free floating my thoughts turn more towards a rustic whisky version of campari.
>>10396>Paulaner Münchner Hell
What did you think of the Paulaner? I grew up on these Bavarian beers when my dad used to live there, they're my absolute favourite. In Germany you can buy them for almost nothing and every single brand tastes good.
I've noticed Paulaner is becoming more and more available here, although it does taste a lil' different to German Paulaner. I think its a slightly altered export version.
Maybe I'll pick up the Tamnavulin red wine cask if I see some, it sounds good.
It actually took be by surprise how it had this round sour body to it. Not a bad thing mind you, I like kriek lambics, just never came across a lager that was more sour than bitter in character before. Only bought the one since I didn't know what to expect, will have to get a few more to get to know it better, try it less cold. IMO you don't really know a beer if you haven't had it both cold and lukewarm.
I bought fancy vermouth instead of the cheap stuff for once and it does make a great manhattan
I bought myself a bottle of Moscato, Cienna and Riesling. I'll probably drink the Cienna first tonight.
These maids have surprisingly good trigger discipline, except the grumpy one in the middle…
Are we all agreed that shotgun maid is best girl
I dunno I'm kinda partial to MP7 maid
I see two shotgun maids. Are you talking about the one with the Team Fortress 2 shotgun, or the one with the Half Life shotgun?
Wait a minute, this is supposed to be a drink thread. I uhh had some iced tea earlier.
Oops, TF2 shotgun. I drank chocolate milk.
Did you buy it that way or break out the Hershey syrup?
Bought it like that, I haven't heard of chocolate syrup before. Is it good?
>>10763>Is it good?
Genuinely I'm not sure since I haven't had it since I was a kid. But to make chocolate milk we would just squirt an amount of it into normal milk and stir until it dissolves.
Even when using what feels like a ridiculously large amount of syrup, the chocolate flavor isn't nearly as strong as the store-bought stuff. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, some people prefer that. My grandmother actually used to drink store-bought chocolate milk mixed with regular milk because she thought the chocolate milk was just too saturated with chocolate.
Dang you have a cool work
I've been drinking quite a bit today (at probably over 10 drinks) and I am afraid of this last tall "Champagen of Beer". I think I will drink it anyway.
I am become dead now thank you
I had three bottles of a nice sake, I only like nigori.
I have a drinking problem. Tonight I had 2 24oz "Truly Hard Seltzer", 1 19.2oz random orange cider, and 2 PBR 24oz cans. I still wanna drink more and I have never felt so lonely.
Please be nicer to your body-chan, one day it might get very upset with you if you drink so much…
Water; 80% of the time.
Making the journey to the alcohol shop tomorrow again to restock the cache, having a hard time deciding on what to get.
Never had pastis before, so quite curious about a bottle of that. Only have budget for one bottle more, and being pulled between either whisky cause that's nice, gin because the local alc. store finally got in plymouth which I've been curious to try because I've seen good reviews of it and I like gin… But also have a hunch that pastis and gin might be of slightly the same territory as pastis tastewise. Then also have a craving for some Gammel Dansk (danish bitter snaps) which is really good in coffee. But again, it almost has some almost liquorice character in it, and pastis has anise tones, again with the territory problem.
Maybe writing that out help me figure, feel like I should go for whisky & gin, and then the bitter snaps has half size bottles available so it's still within budget. And then I can postpone trying out pastis until there is hotter weather and some good company to enjoy it with as well. Though there is another domestic bitter snaps I want to try too… I am not good at making decisions. ;_;
Excuse the triple, but figure the tasting notes is the most important part. Didn't notice until I was looking at the bottle that the whisky is 46% rather than the usual 40% almost all spirits available here are. Surprisingly smooth and round though in spite of that. Almost as if someone had dissolved fudge in spirits. Very gentle and almost muted. I did taste it right after opening, so hope it opens up a bit with some time.
The pastis was interesting. Essentially like drinking slightly floral liquid liquorice. Not sure it's my type of thing, but I didn't dislike it. Think it would do well under certain circumstances. Slightly annoyed at it though because even now a full day later with having the window open, my room still smells like pastis/liquorice. I don't understand how it can cling to the air so much, from just a single pour.
You should dilute it with water. Never drink it raw.
What makes you assume I didn't? ツ
last time i had ouzo i drank the hole bottle
i either mixed it with water or had it raw
either way it's remarkably palatable, if you like anise things..
anyway the next day i had the most awful ghosting on my vision
not double vision, i was sober by that stage, but a distinct ghost image about every high contrast item in my sight, such as trees against the sky, road markers/lines, signposts etc
at the time it concerned me as it wasn't something that normally happened when hungover, i wasn't wearing my glasses at time so perhaps it was just amplifying my astigmatism through being dehydrated but curiously did not occur when drinking similar amounts of other spirits
Drinking a rusty nail with some scotch I bought the other day. For blended scotch I usually get something pretty plain but this time I picked something that was advertised as having some peat to it, and I like the layers that it adds to the drink. I'm unsure how "acceptable" it is to mix a rusty nail with a good single malt, but I'm tempted to try it, I have a bottle of Ardbeg 10 sitting around.
I wouldn't bother about that. How good can a drink be if you mix it with cheap stuff? Just use the good things. The only difference is that you can drink the good beverages without mixing them while the bad ones are almost undrinkable if not mixed.
Anyway you surely have a bottle of drambuie around, else you wouldn't be able to drink a rusty nail. Therefore I suggest trying a aberdeen angus.
I recently discovered that Sailor Jerry's rum and Mr Pure apple juice mix pretty darn nicely. Its smooth, fruity, and not too strong. The kind of drink I can have 1 or 2 of after work and feel pretty nice without getting too tipsy
