What Are You Drinking Tonight?
I could have sworn there was a "what are you drinking tonight?" thread somewhere around here, but search is turning up nothing?

Well I'll kick off (this incarnation of?) this thread with:

I decided to feel classy tonight and picked up a cheapish bottle of Savory & James Amontillado. though now I have Alan Parsons Project stuck in my head and a strange urge to watch Frasier.

Also, I picked up some Smuggler's Notch Distillery vodka; ABSOLUTELY fantastic, at least as good as any top-shelf I've tried, with the added bonus of being both local and cheaper than Belvedere (my brand-of-choice when I have the money (which is practically never)). Highly recommended.

Last night I drank vodka and lemon squash.

Tonight I think I'll have wine. Probs a sav blanc, but there's something going on with rieslings over here lately, so I'm going to have to do some research. I don't usually like them because they're a bit sweet for my palate, but the last couple I've had I could have sworn were closer to a verdelho or even a Chardonnay. Anyway, it's weird. Maybe it's the weather.

Yeungling Lager.

Cans.....but I pour them into one of my new beer glasses I got for xmas.

Earlier, I had one Victory Prima Pils and one Hop Devil.

Sitting on the front porch in a post moving glow of weariness. Long day. Feels nice.

(except to say that my turn-off-my-brain poison tonight is McGillicuddy's Root Beer liqueur and Smirnoff 100 proof, with Munich's Spaten Brewery's "Optimator" and Champlain Orchards' Honeycrisp Ice Cider (basically weak Applejack made in the traditional freeze-a-barrel fashion) to chase)

Last night I was drinking fizzy water.
Tonight I will be drinking fizzy water.

Rinse and repeat.

Not tonight, but New Year's.

I was gifted a bottle of another fine 'Kentucky Vodka'.

:greenface times infinity. Plus 9.

"Quadruple distilled, triple filtered" ain't cutting it.

If you ever get the chance, don't take it.

It ain't just me. Check out this review of Sir Robert's London Dry Gin, over at The Drunk Pirate.

Burnett's also makes a maple syrup flavored vodka, yes, that's what I said.

It even looks evil somehow.
But then I have been working on horrible visualisations for alcohol...

I have drinked a can of Caffiene-Free Diet Coke tonight. Naughty.
Am going downstairs right now to gget some fizzy water. It's just tricky getting the balance right - with just one 330ml can inside me I will wake up dehydrated. With a couple of glasses of fizzy water I won't, but half a glass too many and I'll be up to the loo a couple of times, setting off a chain reaction of bad cat behaviour in the house and denying me much needed sleep.

I have some rose water to flavour it with.
I was getting tired of lemon.

I guess plain water is too blah for many people? I love plain old H2O. But I like it cold. I would fill up several bottles with filtered water ( we have a system at home) and leave them in the fridge. Anyways, I had a glass of fresh grapefruit juice earlier.

Plain water is fine with me. Lemon cuts the flat, metallic taste when chemo is messing with my taste buds, but otherwise plain is good. Fresh juices are the best! I love apple/pear/ginger.

Jacobs Creek Sem Chardonay for me tonight. It's very nice if I do say so, and only $7/bottle. A bargain.

Are you talking about fresh apple/pear/ginger juice?? How do get fresh apple, pear juice? I used to cut apples in tiny pieces and put it in a blender and blend with water or apple juice. Not fond of the slushie-ness of it. What's ginger juice? Or are you talking about ginger tea? Just wondering.

orthodoc 01-11-2013 01:06 PM

I have a juicer - not a deluxe one, but it does some juices fairly well. I use chunks of apple and pear and a slice of peeled fresh ginger, just throw it all in the hopper. It's delicious.

Lola Bunny 01-11-2013 05:43 PM

That does sound good. Gotta try that one day. One apple, one pear, a slice of ginger?

orthodoc 01-11-2013 07:12 PM

Two each of apples and pears, plus a slice of ginger (peeled, thickness to taste).
It's wonderful.
