Hooch? Have you ever had gin and grapefruit juice from a freshly picked grapefruit? Oh that's right grapefruit don't grow in Canada. Even taking a store bought grapefruit and squeezing it makes it that much better.
I need to sleep tonight, no alcohol.
The internets are filled with recipes and other sources of information about it, the highball mix isn't anything new.
But I don't like the two part drink, it was small, and the coke tasted horrible with the milky Hennessy, which is why I was amazed that a drink as potent and large as a Long Island, would be the same price. I guess you hit the nail on the head though, rappers are savage idiots.
I'm on Hooch's gin and grapefruit diet, and it is a fine, fine thing on these balmy evenings. And even last evening when it was cold.
So I'm not anti-mixing. But I wouldn't dump gin from a $50 bottle into a glass of grapefruit juice. You're kind of defeating the purpose in that case. A nice bottle of regular Bombay seems just about right.
I don't know if Hennessey's is fine liqueur, but mixing anything with Coke seems perverse. Like you're chocking down something that would otherwise be undrinkable. Maybe that applies to Hennessey's, I don't know. But I bought a bottle of Hennessy XO for an enthusiast friend over the holidays, and it wasn't cheap. If I find out he mixed it with anything I'm going to be very upset. Next year he'll get liquor in a plastic bottle.
