Proper Drinking

edited August 2008 in Social Entropy++
Well I typed this out so it was fucking huge once, then Firefox shit itself, so let's try again shall we?

I want to talk about proper pouring, mixing, balancing and serving of liquor.

Good recipes, tips and tricks for the home bartender, and favorite bottles.

Everyone knows the Martini, but have you had one dirty? Have you replaced the olive brine in a dirty martini with tequila? It's better than you think. Just a dash, though.

I love experimenting with the Gimlet. 1.5 oz of Bombay Sapphire Gin, half ounce of Rose's Lime Cordial shaken short but sharp and served in a rocks glass with ice. You have to find that perfect balance, but you are rewarded if you take the time.

Or the Manhattan. God damn I love a good Perfect Manhattan. 1.5 oz Rye, or Knob's Creek Bourbon if you're up to it, with half an ounce of sweet vermouth and half an ounce of dry vermouth and a dash of Angostura's Bitters. I like them in a rocks glass over ice with an orange zest for garnish. If I make it for friends I take a bit of the white part of the peel with the zest, give it a little squeeze and light the motherfucker on fire. Always a pleaser.

Ever made your own mojitos? 3 mint leaves in a tall thin glass, muddle it with a fork or a muddler stick, a couple teaspoons of simple syrup or fine sugar, 3 tablespoons of lime juice, stir with ice while adding an ounce and a half of white rum, top with club soda or seltzer, garnish with a lime wedge and a mint stick, or another leaf if you don't want to spring for sticks. Great for hot days.

I have a great recipe for Scotch drinks too.

    mixology is definitely fun I am not shooting it down

    it's just that my friends are at the age where if I took the time to make the perfect martini they would basically be asking why we aren't just doing shots to get them drunk faster

    the only exceptions to this are when we have margarita or sangria parties, the rest of the time any mixes we make are for people who don't want to drink it straight but still want to get drunk

    One of the reasons I was able to stop fearing my 30's.

    I can't get drunk anymore. Once I feel tipsy I just have to stop. I can't stand it.

    Find a bottle, put your lips to it, and then pour.

    You gotta make sure to keep your throat open, so the alcohol mixes right into the stomach lining.

    All tossing an unfiltered cigarette butt in there for taste and downing it in one go then tossing the beef back.

    I've had that before, except the beef was seared. Most descriptions of it have the beef seared but that is the best pic I could find of it. I'd do raw beef, but only if I knew where it was coming from.

    It was actually a good flavor.

    Seriously though- if you are a man and you order a mixed drink that isn't a Martini you should probably go back and reevaluate yourself. Mixers are so women don't have to taste the booze.

    gin martini, whiff of dry vermouth, olives, shaken with ice until cold as hell.

    bloody mary, vodka, tomato juice, juice of half a lemon, tsp of prepared horseradish, worsteshire, tabasco, dash of pepper, salt, pour over ice, garnish with celery, olives, green beans, or whatever you got.

    1. Get a cheap plastic jug of vodka from the grocery store.
    2. Drink until problems go away.

    I would be quite wary about eating raw beef found in a bar.

    That's just me though.

    Cibola--2 oz. whisky, 1 oz. Goldschlager, top with 7-up and serve over ice. Surprisingly good.

    It'll be stronger if you stir it and strain it into a chilled glass.

    It's not a contest. A good cocktail is an art. That's like saying you shouldn't serve steak with potatoes or hamburgers with buns and lettuce because that's for wimps who don't want to taste the meat.

    If you're a real man you drink rubbing alcohol.

    Wierd, since I am actually female. But tampons...nonono...the only thing that enters there would be a penis.

    It's ok, I got a laugh out of it.

    Women get drunk quicker because we have less water in our bodies than men.

    Your choice of drinks are still a disappointment. I demand that you, Satanic Jesus, fight babyeatingjesus to make amends.

    If you want a seriously good resource for drink mixing check out idrink.com When I host parties I generally choose 3 or 4 "drinks" to make and then buy standards and let people know what is on the menu. There is nothing unmanly about being a good host and knowing how to mix a drink.

    I was more commenting on people suggesting Jager-shots while out at a bar. This is a 19 year old girl's drink of choice when she gets her fake ID.

    I actually had a friend from Kentucky bring his 'family whiskey' to us one day. I made him drink a little bit before trying it, it wasn't that bad. Also I'm not blind so there's that.

    Ah. Ok in that case we agree.

    I was a little taken aback when it was suggested that my Gimlets and Manhattans were for young girls.

    I can't drink milk, but I do love the taste of the White Russian. Just another thing on the list of awesome stuff lactose intolerance cuts you off from.
