    Booze, Drugs, and Nightlife Sociocide's Guide to Better Booze & Vino

    Alright, as evidenced by my last thread on the subject, I'm clueless when it comes to finer things that make you dizzy and sick.

    Help me. Please.

    Today I stopped off at the liquor store and picked up some Tecate & Spaten Lager because I was out of beer.

    While I was there I picked up a 1.5L bottle of Bolla Chianti for $15.... so it's cheap, because I'm cheap. I jsut thought I'd try a different sort of red, mostly I've been buying Merlot- for all I know I'm throwing these terms around all willy nilly and wrong, so correct me if that's the case.

    I also decided to increase the contents of my liquor cabinet by and so I bought a 1L bottle of E & J Brandy extra smooth for $13.... so again with the cheap. What can I do with brandy? Is it a sipping or shooting drink? Does it mix? With what?

    Also, recommend for me a booze or wine to pick up next time I'm in the store.

    With the brandy, you can mix yourself a sidecar.

    2 shots brandy
    1 shot triple sec or cointreau
    1 shot lemon juice

    shake with ice and serve in a glass with a sugared rim if you are feeling fancy.

    I used to take a bottle of Bolla's Valpicella (sp?) on all my camping trips.

    buy rum, as a visually challenged martal artiest you must be in constant conflict with ninjas (particularity the Hand). by consuming rum one can attain a state of asskickery known a pirate. as a "pirate" ninjas will cease to be a serious concern, although the eye patch will affect your already poor vision.

    how you take it is just as important, and for that we have another example of asskickery to show us the way.

    The Papas Double Daquery

    two part rum
    one part lime
    shake and serve.


    EDIT: how do i screw up a recipe like a poppas double, im on my fifth.

    Drink brandy after a nice meal, preferably after you've dismissed the servants and the ladies have adjourned. A good brandy is best enjoyed straight, in a ridiculously oversized glass. Accompany it with a fine cigar, a handshake/backscratch deal with your old college chum on the SEC and follow it with a joke about wetbacks.

    brandy kicks ass when you have a cold. it's always good to have some on hand.

    Try looking through this... http://www.mixologyguide.com/

    Maybe go to some tastings or order different things when you go out so you can see what you like.

    Next drink hint. Tonight Im drinking margueritas to enjoy the last warm nights of the year.

    recipe

    1 shot tequila (Herradura reposado, YMMV)
    1/2 shot triple sec
    1 shot lime juice
    spash of lemon

    shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and pour. If you blend this shit I'll make sure you die screaming.

    salt the rim (unlike the sugared rim on the sidecar, this is not optional)

    enjoy.
