I like Duchess now. It doesn't taste like beer at all, but I'm okay with that.
Being that you are a thinker and a drinker (partial to gin) I was wondering if you could write some about a gin drunk.
I've surely drunk gin in the past, and do remember thinking well (as well as I could), at least compared to other drunks.
The rumor/legend I've heard is that it's supposed to curb drunkeness or something of the sort (drunk driving, underage drinking, etc.).
With that said, I suppose it is of personal interest for me to know something about how we think when we are outside ourselves (or inside, same difference). I've got one eye open for a "champagne drunk" (never met one). I'd like to know how that buzz goes, and the hangover to boot.
You can judge the quality of a county/culture on how accessible alki-hole is ;) . In Japan they sell beer at the supermarket, at the local convenience store and out of vending machines all over the place - 24/7.
What a clever people!
I've been in Las Vegas for a couple of weeks now
And these have to be some of the most liberal liquor laws in the country.
