When I hanker for no drink in particular, my old standby is the vodka soda. It's not my favorite beverage, but mild, fizzy and unobtrusive, it's what I drink when I need to drink. What's your filler drink?
Gets the job done for me. I also enjoy bloody Mary's, but I'm always scared that I'll be harassed for ordering a lady's drink.
How is a bloody mary not a man's drink?! Some of it's contents are derived from beef and hot-ass peppers.
With a splash of bitters. Where are there really good Bloody Mary's in town? Especially for brunch.
two ice cubes. I've been on to single malts lately. Or an Amstel Light if I'm feeling especially chunky.
Has very good bloody mary's. So does Joe's bar on Vassar.
White Russians.. Best when blended with ice but good over the rocks. Kalula not that other stuff..
Has been known to make me do the robot dance when properly applied..
I would not have guessed in a million years they could make a good bloody mary. They can barely make a regular mixed drink. They use that stupid little shot measuring thing for all of the drinks, weak! I thought every bartender in the world knew how to do the 3 second pour.
guess my standard drink, I'll buy you one of yours. Take a stab at what you think I drink regularly.
You drink Miller Lite?
Whiskey, Powdered Sugar, Angostura Bitters, Club Soda, Cherry (without stem), Slice of Orange.....
worldsapart! just joking, i wish i were cool enough to drink old fashioneds. they sound fantastic. i think i'll order one next time. that ought to make the bartender hate me. i wonder if any bars stock powdered sugar.
Like father, like daughter.
Whiskey-n-7 but I use diet soda.
One might have to bring their own. I always wanted to order one too but didn't want to piss off the bartender.......or look like a pompous ass for ordering an Old Fashioned.....
bartenders that measure shots do so because the owners make them (because they want every penny that gets poured out of the bottle)
Thanks greenley. That's why I don't go to Joe's anymore, eventhough it's 3 blocks from house and would be a perfect local. I order a Maker's rocks there and the Marker's doesn't even make it 1/2 way up the glass, with ice, becasue they use that stupid jigger.
For a bottle of High Life at Joe's.....It's supposed to be a dive bar for heaven's sake. Now that I got that out of my system......
Strength in numbers. If a flashmob were to appear at a bar and all order Old Fashioneds, it would be weird enough to keep thoughts of pomposity out of anyone's mind. We still might be labeled asses, but I can live with that.
sloppy, game on.
sounds like you need to visit Anodyne. I guarantee you'll be satisfied with your Maker's (or Mecker's as a dear old friend of mine calls it).
Does pour a fine Maker's, as does (did) the Launchpad. Burt's is up there too....
and I promise I'll stop babbling at you all about booze. Jessica, you've guessed my old standby. If you know my watering hole then I'll buy you a drink at the witching hour today.
which is a vodka tonic with a splash of grapefruit juice
That doesn't sound very Klingon Bird of Preyie.....sounds good though
But I don't know if I can make it today.
