easy way out on a bloody mary

 

spicy v8 and cheap vodka

Add a bit of crushed black pepper, and you're good to go Big Smile

You're right... ground, mixed up the terminology.  I also haven't found any mixes I actually like vs just v8 and smirnoff.

freshly squeezed apple and celery juice added with a bit of beer. Tasted better with the beer in it!

It's Sunday cocktails at my house starting now (11:40am) Today's feature drink is Bloody Marys made with Absolut, cheap supermarket vegetable juice (a V8 ripoff) , a splash of tabasco sauce, lemon, and a celery stick. I'll probably have several

How are you feeling right now? BTW, thanks for planting the Bloody Mary idea in my head. It's been awhile since I had one. It's quite enjoyable... Smile

I've had my share of hangovers. I won't mention a fellow BLF member's name who visited me a couple of months ago. He ended up praying to the porcelain god after a night of heavy drinking. lol! I felt so bad for him. Thank God he didn't throw up on carpets!

That was my drink of choice in the 90's. I also had friends who were bartenders that made my drinks "special" Back then I did drink and drive. Luckily I never had an accident or got pulled over. These days I never drink and drive. I rarely go to bars anymore. When I do, I'm not driving.

Tito’s Handmade Vodka. 19.99 for 750 ML and it is the smoothest vodka I have drank at any price including Goose, Belvedere, Hanger One, Crystal Skull, Ketel One etc. Best there is.

Dude, I love me some Tito’s! Texas Vodka for the win!

I now live about 20 mins south of Austin, where Tito’s is located. and you’re right, the stuff is hellaciously smooth.

As for what I’m drinking? Well, sober right now, but I have some Shinerbock lined up in the fridge, and I’m overdue to bust out another Divine Reserve 12…..I have 5 left, planning on drinking one a year. It’s supposed to reach peak flavor and awesomeness in 2017.

At least 33 year old Port Ellen - they demolished the distillery in 1980. Probably around 50 years old.

Just don't ask what the bottle cost - but I earn less than that in a quarter year.

There are Caol Islas as good which cost a bit less - but not much less.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

The old Islay whiskies aren't for everyone. Imagine drinking Stockholm Tar and you'll get the general impression.

And reckon on each sip costing $200. Ardbeg or very old Caol Islas are the closest that mass-market stuff gets.

But don't try it till it is 30 years old. Which costs a lot. If you can't take 3 year old Ardbeg - or Caol Isla (If you can find one that young - personally, I avoid it till it's 10) or Bruichladdich (Which isn't drinkable till it's 20) or the other Islas. Stick to Speyside stuff. The MacAllan is the best unless it was matured in bourbon casks in which case don't drink it. Really don't. My patients' cats leave better n their litter trays.
