Well, it ain't Grape Nehi.

Full Sail Amber, "12 fluid ounces of ridiculously tasty original amber ale concocted by our massive brewforce of 47." They print it with an underscored space for the number.

A horrible cup of coffee, from a place that's supposed to be famous for good coffee. Tastes like it's been cooking too long. Barf.

What is that? I know it's what Radar always drank on MASH, but I have no idea what it is. Also I always imagined it was 'knee-high'.

I am rather drunk on a combination of Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. So much for my resolution to cut down alcohol......am currently sipping a greentea in the hope of staving off tomorrow's hangover.

It's grape soda, very purple. I think they make other flavors too, like orange and "red" (strawberry maybe?)

Omegang something or other, tastes like wood shavings in pond water.

I have a whole, unopened bottle of absinthe from Prague. It intimidates me.

I think I'll have a bit of Becherovka later.

Hmm....I have some rather vague memories of an interesting absinthe soaked weekend a few years ago. Me, Judah, my bro and a couple of others.....a couple of bottles of good, strong continental absinthe...that's about as much as I recall:P

I hear oozo and coke is good . . . but I'm afraid!

Ouzo or raki, all the same. I found I prefer taking my raki without a splash of water --a traditional way of taking it, sort of the East-Med answer to bourbon-and-branch -- as this somehow caused me to twitch, whereas drinking it unmixed did not. No idea why.

However, chasing one's drinks at the evening's end with half a liter of water will do much to relieve a hangover, most of whose symptoms are caused by dehydration. Metabolizing alcohol will dry you out, which is why Mohammed forbade his followers to drink wine -- desert weather will dry you out quite sufficiently without help. Having a store of water in you for your body to draw on will literally keep your humours in balance.
