On Absinthe,

The Traditional French Absinthe Ritual
Absinthe, because of it's bitterness, is traditionally served with a sugar cube. In the late 1800's and early 1900's, it was fashionable to serve the sugar cube on a flat, slotted spoon that held the sugar in place over the glass of absinthe. Water was slowly dripped on the cube, and the resulting syrup dripped through the holes in the spoon and mixed with the absinthe. As the composition of the absinthe liqueur changed, the alcohol percentage dropped, forcing the anise and other essential herbal oils to precipitate out. This caused the absinthe to take on a milky appearance, if it was made properly. (Poorly made absinthe may not show this effect. Additionally, poor absinthe often has color added to it to make it appear an unnatural emerald green.)

The Modern, or "Bohemian" Absinthe Ritual
A new method of sweetening Absinthe has recently become popular. Once the absinthe is poured (now as a shot), a small amount of sugar in a spoon is dipped into the glass, soaked, and withdrawn. The sugar is then set on fire until it melts and caramelizes, and then is stirred into the drink. Cold water is then added to the drink to put out the alcohol fire.

So you can set it on fire if you like. Whether this makes it better or not I'm not so sure. I can't stand the stuff.

Absinthe is an enjoyable liqueur in my opinion. It's not my top favorite alcoholic drink though, and that is: A double shot of Wild Turkey, a pint of Heinekken, and a tall glass of water on the side.

After that red or white wine, I'm not picky as long as it's not sweet. If I have some extra $$$ I will get Mouton Cadet. If I'm really rich, I see what the store or restaurant has available, and keep the tastes of my companion(s) in mind.

And after that I suppose a small tumbler of absinthe with an ice cube in it--I like the taste, so I usually don't take it sugary. Either that or a very dry, very cold martini with a twist.

~~~ yours in Chaos, Scarlett

I love mojito's or anything with a mint flavour. I mainly drink vodka drinks. I can't really drink beer, as the malt seems to make me sick. Even when I smell beer I start feeling ill. Mojito's are so awesome though. I love the mint flavour, they are smooth, delicious and always make me want more.

I don't drink but when I did I drank the shit out of Jager and Monster, or red bulls. On ice is the only way to do it!

Hellbent...do you have the pre-mixed vodka and rockstar drinks in the states? We have them here in Canada. 6.9% alcohol. Tastes exactly like a rockstar energy drink, but with vodka. I enjoy them. Mainly because I drink normal energy drinks on a daily basis.

you're KILLING me jester! I had no idea they made those! Sounds lovely. I can enjoy vodka only in that way, the taste of vodka by itself is a buzz kill for me because it tastes the same going down as it does coming back up \:\( Bad memories of vodka dude \:\(

Smirnoff made their own energy/alcohol drink. Don't remember the name of it, it just boasts that it contains guarana. They aren't bad, but you get more bang for your buck with the rockstar. Alcoholic rockstars are 473 ml and the smirnoff ones are 355 ml and they are seperated by like 25 cents in price.

Just the thought of your drink makes me want to hurl, 6. No offense.

I have had bad, bad experiences with 3 out of the above 4 liquors.

Like they say about 9/11: NEVER AGAIN.

No offense taken. I was looking to get trashed last night, and I accomplished that. The best part about it was that it was free. Gotta love having friends who are bartenders.

My favorite liquor is Everclear, don't know why. The only drink that I've created was a mix of

1 can of Sparks orange
8 oz of Blue Powerade

It taste like a margarita, but two of those and you'll be wasted and pumped full of energy.

I call it a Micky D's Slammer.

I see this thread has been around a while; but, the subject matter is perennial, and I thought it a good venue to post my premiere post-introductory post.

I was introduced to a little libation called the Godfather.
Fill a cocktail glass with ice.
Do the same with a shaker. Add one shot of scotch with one shot of amaretto. Shake to a count of thirty, to allow the elements to properly mix, as well as be properly chilled.
Strain into the cocktail glass, and enjoy.

I have yet to order this drink without need to give instructions for its preparation.

I have recently dicovered a variant I seem to enjoy more...at least for the moment. The godmother is the same as above, substituting vodka for scotch.

Studies have shown that either drink is enhanced by use of a fine cigar.
