Hehe, the teetotalers thread just makes me want to post cocktails.

Godiva liquor is divine on that note, and a Chocolate truffle coffee with a spot of their dark chocolate liquor and cream is a good way to go.

Which also reminds me that room temperature, several hour old coffee left in the pot goes great in a blender with cream, ice, and Kahlúa or Irish cream.

I found that the right Tea works great in a hot toddy. Irish Tea (at least the one by Stash) works pretty well in Jameson Hot toddy.

Also, Cock ‘n Bull makes for some great Moscow mules.

My favourite drink is bailleys and milk. I wanted to bring a bottle of bailleys to uni with me... but i left it in the car and my father drove off with it.

Be not afraid...

Going to try to bring some more class into alcohol discussions here. I’m sure we’ve all tied one on before and may continue to do so, but I think alcohol deserves a thread where it can be discussed without rampant typos.

Not to mention, the drunk thread didn’t seem like the greatest place to discuss my Wine Aerating Pourer for when I’m too lazy to let a bottle or glass breath.

[up][up]It might be, though it really kills my whine drinking mood

Indeed, and it's easy to find places with big selections in Portland, or even places that brew there own bear.

Um... Justice?

My typos are because I'm bad at spelling and mildly dyslexic at word choice when I type on the fora at such a quick pace, they're a far cry from some of the drunken posts on the thread I mentioned.

On the other hand, the mental image of "brew their own bear" is hilarious enough for me to forgive the typos.

Beer/bear is a great typo in general.

I just turned 21. You know what I did on my birthday? Enjoyed a single Smirnoff Ice. You know how many times I've been drunk since then? 0.

I'm doomed to be a responsible drinker.

THANK. GOD.

Don’t want to sound too much of a snob…probably a little late for that. but I’m inclined to agree.

Though the malted fruit drinks are kinda “bleh” to me in general. Not to say I don’t enjoy fruity girly drinks.

Smirnoff Ice was the first alcoholic beverage to ever enter my lips. I hated it but decided that alcohol wasn't as damning to the soul as I had thought. I'm now more of a straight Whiskey kind of girl (yes we exist), the best of which I've ever tried was Laphroiag 12yr in a London bar. It was unbelievably smooth yet pungent, and moorish.

I also went to a private Whiskey tasting night hosted by the owners of the local specialist alcohol shop in Gloucester. They treated everyone at the end of the night to a shot of their several hundred dollar, 50yr Glenfiddich. It, it was orange, like beautifully orange and my God, just perfect.

Also when I was a more of a party animal, I used to shoot Malibu with milk before going out clubbing. It's the perfect stomach liner and it tastes delicious.

Ok, so maybe it was Glenfiddich that I was thinking of…

We need to buy a house then mortgage it so we can afford a bottle of some 50 year old scotch.

Why the Smirnoff Ice hate? It tastes like soda... delicious, raspberry-flavored soda.

I also learned to love hard lemonade and chocolate milk with Irish cream, but I wanted to illustrate the point that I wasn't going to be drinking anything really hard. smile

Hard lemonade: A friend turned 21 a few days after me. She was determined to find an alcoholic drink I'd enjoy. I tried an Espresso martini - the vodka was too obvious. I tried a Sex on the Beach; once I squeezed the orange in it wasn't so bad, but I still could taste the alcohol, which was a problem (bad experience with my first ever taste of alcohol, you see). Finally, she ordered a Mike's. I tried it. It was AWESOME.

Chocolate milk and Irish cream: Something Positive REALLY knows what it's talking about.

I'm interested in more discussion of how to brew a bear.

I, too, wish to brew a bear.

Beer's off limits because of the wheat gluten thing, damn it. Cider or mead, now, those are quite do-able, and I have friends who brew killer mead. Not quite literally killer, though it has considerable authority.

This is why Norse Heathens make good friends; they produce home-made booze that'll knock your socks off.

^ Barley gluten may be different enough from wheat gluten for barley beers to be okay for you. Studies are ongoing. Sorghum beer would be gluten-free

I've had the sorghum beers and they're not bad. Beer seems to be leaving me feeling crappy quicker than other alcohol, but it may not be for that reason. I guess I'm just made to drink one or two and stop.
