I remember in the 80s getting some Afghanistan hashish with a gold picture of an arm holding a AK47 and the slogan 'Smoke Russia Away' also in gold. Nice marketing.

Ever tried Jägermeister with bubbly? We call it Gehirnkleber which means brain glue. Mix 50/50, stir and serve.

Why not cut out the middleman and just drink puke?

It does not taste as bad as it might sound ( no! ), though after a couple of Gehirnkleber the final taste in one's mouth might be puke.

That's safe and has style. Brain glue is fatal especially after some tequilas, but appreciated by party animals here. You want to pick up your teeth with a broken arm in the morning?- Have some brain glue!

:eek: ouch :eek:

Thanks Post Toxic...see, you learn something new everyday. Brain glue it will be tomorrow night. I'll be partying after giving a talk at the gallery (bar accross the street). We'll see if the teeth remain intact:D.

Speaking of 'bitters', has anyone had Fernet Branca before? Talk about medicinal tasting. It's a type of Amaro - an Italian digestif - but unlike normal Amaro (which has fairly balance levels of sweetness and bitterness) it's discernibly more bitter tasting. Apparently Fernet Branca and Cola is almost the national drink of Argentina. Even then, it still tastes like cough mixture.

My father liked Fernet Branca, I remember a Fernet bottle in our living room bar that was replaced by another once it was emptied.

On a similar theme, i.e. Italian drinks, I've recently discovered Tuaca. Made in Tuscany it's a brandy-based liqueur flavoured with orange and vanilla (in the main). The flavourings are quite subtle and although it's sweet, it's not too sweet. You can make a nice 'Mule' with it too - i.e. replacing the vodka with it.

Honestly the best vodka I've had was Zoladkowa from Poland. Herbs and bitter orange make it taste like an adult lemonade - the right thing for a hot summer's day I feel. It's smooth and not too sweet. You can drink quite a lot of it and still have a clear mind, which is very much not the case with the likes of Pushkin Red or Gorbatschow.

I feel the upcoming summer will mark the end of my soberness... ;)

You can get Harp in the USA? Never knew that. Funny as it tastes like crap on the UK mainland but when I've had it in Northern Ireland (where I work and where it's brewed) it tastes much better. I normally stick to Guinness though (same company as you probably already knew).

Had a swell evening with the brainglue and some beers. I probably wont have those things again (the former) as they are still too damned sweet. And by the time the syruppy stuff is cut, so has been the alcohol content. Better off with the boilermakers. But I'm always up for a try.

Harp has long been available here in the Boston area. It's quite good out of the tap, and bottled isn't too bad either. But I would expect it to be a far cry from that brewed in its homeland. I've never been to Ireland, but when I had Bass in the UK back in 1993, it was worlds better than the Bass they pitch at you here.

I also found a great new friend in Bishop's Finger over there. A Kentish ale with plenty of body. Gotta love the nickname too: "Nun's Delight." :D

Didn't know you lived in Boston but I guess that explains it.
Just sitting here sipping Tuaca, having a smoke and eating some chilli-flavoured chocolate btw. Happy Friday everybody.

two forty's of Steel Reserve...Big damn suprise. Finished a balcony job hours away. Me and the F- 350 listened to Beatles records until I made it home and found the old guy who sells those giant bottles. They are shaped like funnels, and its a good thing, cause I had to drink them quickly...as there were the usual issues about getting inside the house.

Anyone evr try to calculate how many beers they've drank in their life? Me, I figure to have averaged 3 or 4 per night (some nights 8 some nights zero, some nights twelve, followed by two zeros, etc) for 27 years...so its just about math. Whew, it can be alarming.
Reminds me of an email that was going around a couple of months ago showing how much more money a person would have today if they invested in beer and then recycled the cans instead of investing in the stock market. :D

Had a few Harps myself whilest away on my trip to the flatlands of Ohio. A pretty cool place called, The Pub. Brand spanking new version of an old time English/Irish/Scotish(the servers wear kilts:eek:) pub. The food was good. I switched to 20oz. Stellas after dinner. Yum!:)

Spiked my gatorade with Popov as I worked on the front porch (restoring the house this summer). Made a rainy nasty day a little better.

That sounds nice slimedog, eggnog in April...
for me it's a nice red wine.
Tomorrow maybe a nice White.
Actually went looking for it in the stores and it was a no go, I think it's only a winter beverage. I had some brandy and thought it was a good choice. Wine just gives me a headache & it's too bad cause I live now near wine country in Calif.

Maybe you need to have the right kind of wine...
Unless of course your like my father, who is allergic to the tannins in red wine.
Sorry you didn't find the eggnog.
