    Pick your poison . . . . . .

    So what do you like to drink???

    Lately I've been on a scotch kick. Finished off a bottle of single malt McClelland's highland, it was pretty cheap for a single malt, about $30. Very tasty whiskey, smooth, with a honey/fruity sort of tone to it. Wish I had the $$$$ to spend on the good stuff, but $30 is my absolute limit for any fifth of booze.

    I'm also a big partaker of the fruity rum/vodka cocktails. The secret to making a good cocktail is in the ingredients, ie the cheapest vodka that is decent is Svedka, although I usually ask the bartender to put Stoli in my drinks. As far as rum, Appleton is always my standard, they are a definite step above Bacardi on crystal rum and way better than Captain morgan on spiced rum. Avoid any drinks with cheap "apple pucker" or "razmatazz" hiriam walker schnapps. The good stuff is made with Contriue, Kahula, Baileys, Frangelico, and Chambroid.

    Figured I'd share my sacred Pina Colada recipe. Everybody I've ever served this to swears its by far the best Pina Colada they've ever had.

    Pina Colada from scratch. Break out your blender for this one.
    1. About 1/3rd of a fresh pineapple, blender should be about 1/3rd full of pineapple
    2. Ice. Put in a little more ice than pineapple
    3. Pour about 10 shots of Appleton white rum
    4. I use the squeeze bottle of coconut extract, you find it next to the margarita mixers on the soft drink aisle. I use about 1.5 to 2 times the amount of coconut butter as the amount of rum I put in there.
    5. 2-4 scoops of vanilla ice cream

    The whole gist of what I'm getting at with this is fill your blender about 2/3rds to 3/4 full with ingredients. Blend that stuff up, taste it. If its too thin, add some ice and pineapple. Too thick, add some more rum and coconut. Basically you just kind of play with it until you get it tasting right and the right consistency. Garnish with a chunk of pineapple and a marchismo cherry.


    Anyways, post up what you like to drink, or any good cocktail recipe.

    Save your $$ and try a bottle of The Balvenie Doublewood 12. Not cheap. (Life is too short for cheap Scotch)

    Old Fashioned:

    In a double old fashioned (rocks) glass:

    1/4 tsp sugar
    1 maraschino cherry
    A 2" strip of orange peel, twisted and bruised
    A dash of Angostura bitters
    2 oz. good Bourbon.
    2 oz. bottled water (NOT city water !!!)

    Dissolve the sugar and muddle the fruit in the bourbon. Add the bitters and water, stir. Pack with ice cubes.

    Yes, I know I'm underage, but I much prefer a glass of 2008 San Juan Cellars Siegerrebe to any other kind of alcohol. Unless we're talking about shots of Patron Silver or Gentlemen's Jack.

    Re: Pick your poison . . . . . .

    At any given time I'll have some Polish beer in my fridge, usually Tyskie or Okocim. Zywiec if I can find it. Once in awhile I'll get a 500ml bottle of Okocim Porter which has to be my favorite dark beer. Plus it's 8.1%.

    I've become a fan of German beer too, especially Hefeweizens. Warsteiner I'll buy by the case, and when I find it in a store for a reasonable price I'll pick up some Ayinger Bräu Weisse, Schneider Weisse, and/or Weihenstephaner. These are a perfect compliment to a ribeye.

    Also I'm a fan of Sobieski Vodka. The best Vodka I've ever had was Wyborowa in Poland, though it's nearly impossible to find here, even at all the specialty Polish stores in the area
