    I'm a No. 7 myself, but I can find the occasional Jager shots accumulating nicely on my bar tab as well.

    Re: Pick your poison . . . . . .

    Hine Antique XO 80 year old cognac is the best on my shelf. So smooth you can taste the wood from the cask.

    A friend from atlanta turned me on to Wild Turkey American Honey straight up. Not bad.

    Favorite cocktail - Summer: Lemon Sorbetto
    Recipe for The Venetian Lemon Sorbetto Cocktail
    Yield: 4 servings
    2 cups (16 oz) lemon ice cream or gelato, softened (recipe for Iced Lemon Cream, below)
    2 tablespoons vodka
    1/3 cup Prosecco or other sparkling wine , chilled (or more, to taste)
    Lemon Zest
    Preparation Method:
    Chill 4 champagne flutes.
    Place first three ingredients in blender, blending until smooth. Pour mixture into chilled champagne flutes. Sprinkle with lemon zest, and serve immediately.

    Favorite Cocktail - Winter: Wassail
    Wassail #1
    8 Cinnamon Sticks - (more)
    2 cup(s) Rum - (more)
    1 tbsp. Allspice - (more)
    1 gallon(s) Apple Cider - (more)
    1 tbsp. Cloves (Whole) - (more)
    1 Lemon (Sliced) - (more)
    1 Orange (Sliced) - (more)

    Preparation Method:

    In a pinch I'll just order a widowmaker (Grand Mariner and Courvoisier in a brandy snifter)
    Snake Bit Super Chilled Black Raven 2006 Cadillac XLR-V aka Elwood (Jake's brother)

    Back in the 70's, doing the Southern Ocean sailboat racing circuit we used to bring back cases of Mt. Gay rum - it was $0.75 a liter back then ! The old square bottles. (Colloquial racer's name for the stuff was "Mt. Goofy".) .........but you're right - some of their old and limited batch rums are like drinking fine cognac.

    Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey on the rocks in a brandy snifter.

    I'm primarily a bourbon drinker, and have several "small batch" and "single barrel" preferences.............. Heaven Hill (Evan Williams) distilleries in Bardstown, KY produces a staggering array of bourbons, some just wonderful, some not so: one to avoid is the Willie Nelson endorsed bottling named "Old Whiskey Creek". An 86 proof offering that seems pretty good at first sip, but halfway through you begin to get the impression that you're drinking DEX-COOL. The stuff has a lingering, biting aftertaste that's really uncomfortable.

    off the grid.

    Re: Pick your poison . . . . . .

    Crown, Canadian Club, Capetian Morgans Spiced, and Hennessy VSOP and i had this rum from Dominican Ron Barcelo that i really liked.
    use to always mix with coke or gingerale, but lately on the rocks with a cuban while fishing.

    starting to acquire a taste for red wine after a incident that involved finishing a box of it before noon....it was a very long time ago...
