What are you drinking? (1 Viewer)

This is a thread to tell what you had to imbibe. And though non-alcoholic drinks are not banned we mostly encourage alcoholic drinks. Especially if you have to drive.

Last night I had my favorite-Black Russian with a beer.

Last night I drank a bottle of Grolsch beer (large) and 66% of a bottle organic
Spanish (100% tempranillo grape) red wine.
I don't drive a car.

Appreciate your friends
Last night it was a very short and dirty Martini with Beefeater Gin. Just a taste due to the flu.


BTW this is a good idea for a thread slimedog. The title sounded like it was started by one of the European kids.

Oddly enough, I had a couple of shots of Knob Creek last night because I'm a sick, and it is a natural cough suppressant.

I've found.

Through experimentation.
 
Unfortunately the Gallon Jug of Carlo Rossi merlot was on sale yesterday for 9.99...I keep it out in the shop (ironworker). So its gonna be THAT kind of week. Sigh.

I may be wrong but didn't you at least in the past as I recall.

Non drinkers are allowed to post their vile unapealing bevarges of choice. And people who don't drive are welcomed as well.
 
I don't drink either. Except on phony French TV shows with pretentious obnoxious hosts, ex-psychaitrists of Artaud and women writers with exposed knee caps.

Yesterday I had one lonely but lovely ice-chilled bottle of ZIPFER beer while lying in bed and listening to T.B. Sheets from Van Morrison.
 
Ansac cognac was on sale, so last night I had a few snifters of that and a bottle of Longhammer India Pale Ale. (Not at the same time, of course.) Tonight we're cooking dinner and I'll probably dip into my red wine collection.

Abord the Yorikke!
I had one Stella Artois light, a few glasses of Agarena, an unexpensive but pleasant red, I shot of amarula, a christmas goodie,(2 days ago). Since then, green tea

Couple bottles of Harp lager. Did some writing and some cooking.
Not a "drunken evening" by any stretch. But just you wait....
 
I didn't know they made Stella Artois Light- the regular is a great beer.

I had two shots of Jagermeister and an oil can (25 oz) Fosters beer.

We were away during the holidays so we're putting up our Christmas decorations now and I'm listening to a Charles Brown, jazzy blues guy, Christmas album. It feels pretty silly celebrating Christmas in Calif. (warm climate) anytime, so now is okay.

The song says, "I haven't had a drink but I'm all lit up like a Christmas tree."
 
... didn't you at least in the past as I recall.

You got me.
I was joking.
Or maybe I was drunk when I wrote that.
On Red Wine I guess.
In that case it wouldn've been a Spanish 'Gran Reserva'.

(Always make sure, your wine isn't too warm! The saying, a red wine should be served at room-temperature obviously comes from an age, when 'room-temperature' had another meaning. In other words: You can't drink ANY wine warmer than 20°C - and this isn't even 'room-temperature'. So - don't be afraid of a little time in the refridgerator even for red wine. - And open it 1 hour before drinking for Chrissake!)
 
Funny thing about that goddamned Carlo Rossi. You get the headache THE NIGHT you drink it...instead of in the morning. The gallon was supposed to last the week but, well, it didnt. So I've been nursing evening hangovers and starting out fresh every morning. I guess it okay...next week it will be something else.
 
ive been drinking Glenmorangie 10 year single Malt Whiskey....



DAMN!! (how did that happen!)


my girlfriends folks know i like to drink....so they bought me that for my birthday....

its been going slowly though; i've got a head-cold that feels like styrofoams bin' wedged into my head cavities...

I thought that you liked my balcony;)

Right. Canadian balconies are my favorites.
It's not much overseas, big lakes they call small, and so on. Really.
I'm quite serious. For now.
 
My son discovered the Light, and his name is not Edison.
I actually prefer the light to the regular.
Jagermeister is lovely.

Somehow I don't think "lovely" is the proper term for Jagermeister. Over the holidays me mum asked what it tastes like. I said nasty cough syrup.

I wonder if that Stella Light is available yet in America?

And Roni is suspended for two and a half days for lying in this thread.

Two Sierra Nevada pints, a jager and a Coors light tonight.

It's a virus, isn't it?

Yes :)

Like everybody else I was smoking everywhere and everytime, knowing, it's stupid, coughing myself up every 3+ stairs ... etc.

Now I step outside, it's more like taking a break from everything to me, you know. Still, it's very stupid. But there is something about smoking and balconies especially. I like the idea and standing/sitting there, looking out and down, contemplating nothing and everything. I often wonder what people are doing with or on their balconies who don't smoke? Sunbathe? Come on.

But back to drinking. Last night I had lots of green tea, which I normally don't like. But I have a cold and it was the only tea around. Whish I had had some hot rum to add. Would have helped.

Well, as a balcony-worshipping ex-smoker I am proud to report that many people make good use of them.

In fact, cigarettes are not required to sit and stare from a balcony.
and if it were, I would have to move to Kentucky for cheap cigs.

Cats love balconies.
A balcony plus a tarp equals storage space.
Romeo & Juliet features the best balcony scene.
Fastest weather check ? Step onto the balcony.
Tennessee Williams dug balconies too.
The hotel balcony across from Confederate Park
in Memphis TN offers a view of hookers and dealers
and the Confederate flag landscaped in blue and red.
I have NEVER fallen off a balcony because I have good friends.

These are a few reasons I love balconies.

well, since I killed the jug of merlot sooner than I had expected, I needed a bridge to Friday. A teeny little bottle of Seagrams (half pint) & and a 24 oz Steel Reserve. Perfect. Not enough for a headache of any kind...then it will be beer quantities for the weekend.

Those are some hot reasons, true. I've smoked my way through many balconies in town and each had their own advantages. Looking out on woods/grass/fields etc. you get the nice feeling of being in the heart of nature. Looking out into backyards with waiters from the restaurant downstairs dumping garbage you get the nice feeling of being in the heart of the city. Looking right into your neighbors window you get the feeling of being in a Hitchcock movie.

But it's no good in the morning and at noon. It has to be at least late afternoon or evening for balcony smoking. And especially at night, o, especially at night.

Yesterday I had some Trumer Pils, another Austrian beer, due to an invitation. My throat was still a bit sore, but it went down alright.
