    One oz whiskey per 12 oz cider. Called a Johnny Jump Up. Quite refreshing.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Careful with Johnny jump ups. They sneak up on you. Youíre consuming two drinks in one. Two of those is almost equivalent to a bottle of wine.

    Better for refreshing is a very weak gin and tonic. You can drink one or a couple. When I want a sip on a gorgeous day I do tonic, lime juice, and a splash of gin. Better yet can be seltzer and bitters. Sounds kind of weird but itís actully kind of awesome.

    I also make homemade raspberry iced tea. Brew several bags of black tea with a little honey, then let it chill for a couple minutes undiluted. I like to make it very concentrated. Then before itís had a chance to cool too much, I dump in frozen raspberries from my momís garden. It goes great with a little bourbon in it.

    Settled on the Middle Sister Sweet and Sassy Moscato. Sweet enough for me to finish the bottle tonight.

    Next time, I should have this with or after cake and ice cream.

    Agreed on the Johnnys. They are dangerous.

    The only problem with mead is it is about 80 proof light.

    Give me mead with the alcohol content of Austria schnapps, please.

    We all have hopes and dreams. Honestly Schramm's is outstanding. The only other one I've had that I've loved is https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/pr...533/?ba=Wobbly Viking Blod. Very traditional, although still only at 19%.

    B Nektar is nice and all, but it's definitely mead-lite.

    That Viking Blod is at my local wine store -- I loved it.

    I am sad that I didn't pick up more Founder's Blushing Monk when I had the chance. Bought 2, drank 1, and was able to find 1 more at a local bottle shop. That stuff is delightful. Even tcbg (who thinks my taste in booze is f*ing weird) loved it .

    Bought 2? As in four packs? They didn't do bombers this time around, from what I know. And I know there is a store by me that still has some. Not much, but some.

    Nope - 2. Most of the craft beer shops around here are bottle shops - you can buy in packs or create your own 6 packs with just singles of everything in stock (some exceptions, of course, like CBS or other specialty stuff).

    Gotcha. You easterners are weird.

    (although, yes, sometimes stores around here do limits for the special stuff)

    Hardly news or a surprise
    It does make it easy to sample a lot of stuff, which is nice. Also, when you get a real dud (like Marsh Island's PB You, Who) at least you aren't stuck with a bunch.

    There is a brewery that does all sorts of amazing 1940s pinup art on its bottles and I bought some just on the strength of their aesthetic art.

    The beer itself was atrocious.

    That was when the singles rule really came in handy (mitigated by the fact that I'd gotten 3 or 4 different singles of theirs).

    Found it; it's Fordham-Dominion out of DE.



    YMMV on the taste of the beer since I detest hoppy IPAs.

    Apparently they have a Tripel called Candi so maybe that's good:



    Some of their other labels:












    I sense a pattern.

    Re: Drinking Thread: Three Sheets To The Wind

    A lot of times, I wonder why breweries don't put more effort into their beer, rather than the artwork/labels.

    Found some Hoof Hearted tonight (although it's via contract brew). Still delicious.

    And while I like the option of single bottles, sometimes I want that full 4 or 6 pack (and it's usually a couple bucks cheaper that way). *shrug*

    Well, it's hard to argue with those looks. Too bad the beer sucked.

    Most bottle stores sell both options, though no perk usually to buying the full pack as opposed to the singles. Most of my variety came from our Monday night trivia outing at a taphouse. It seems that the place is either going under or not doing well because they got rid of the trivia guys and it's always empty regardless of time of day or day of the week (even on trivia night - it's dead until 7pm and then dies again immediately after trivia ends at 9:15). They have had zero success in keeping any sort of cook or steady menu, which is really frustrating (we have been eating dinner before we go for months, which is obnoxious since we need to leave at 6:30 to get there and park).
    *shrug* Have to do a little more work to find new stuff and new places to drink.


    ETA - we can't say $exy? Seriously?!

    I know Founders KBS was about $24/4pk, but it was $6-$7/bottle in my area. Seems to be par for the course, for any beer (the discount, that is, not the actual price)
