What are you drinking right now?

Margarita. I wish it was a peach one. I don't know where to find them, and I don't know how to make them, but I had one on my birthday a couple of years ago at a restaurant (that no longer has them). Mmm.

I am curious to know if any of you alcohol drinkers have tried shots from sacrament cups? If so, do you use your right hand only?
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Thanks, Dravin. Printing it out as I type.

I'm right-handed, so the question probably doesn't apply to me, Moksha. :D

Heaven Hill Mellow Corn BiB. Straight forward and pleasant (though uncomplex), and hard to beat the price at $10.99. Not everything on the bottom shelf is only good for dumping in Diet Dr. Pepper.

Eating it now. Yes, I said eating. I made the mistake of putting frozen peaches in instead of thawing them out or using canned ones, so now I have a margarita smoothie.

Still nice, because I like smoothies.

Nothing wrong with an adult smoothie. I've been known to put a little rum in a pineapple smoothie.

99.9% of the time I'd never recommend drinking your bong water. However, if you use a chilled red or white Mascato, frosty freeze a clean glass bong then swig the vine juice after just a few hits of a quality herb...it kicks off a wonderful buzz even the birds and bees would be jealous of. Don't try this with anything stronger than wine. I do plan to try this with Epic's Brainless on Cherries, that's a new favorite strong beer.

Mmmm interesting. So do you like peaty Scotch? I'm a novice though, without giving the game away Scotch is something of a national passtime... :)

I love heavily peated Scotch. I've tried Laphroaig, Ardbeg, and of course Lagavulin. I have plans on trying the other Islay distilleries as the opportunities present themselves. Not sure if Kilchoman, Bruidladdich , or Bunnahabhain is next. Branching out beyond Islay; Glenfiddich Fire & Cane interests me greatly and I expect I'll enjoy it when I get to try it (Rum finished and peated? Yes please!).

Going to be popping the cork on a store pick Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey. I'm looking forward to it but have been limiting the number of open bottles I keep so a spot just opened up in the line-up from finishing off a Michter's American Unblended Whiskey.

Edit: Tried it and liked it.

I tried something called a High Octane Cream Soda at Red Rock last weekend, the high octane component being rum. It got the job done but fell short of a plain old fashioned rum and Coke.

Lapsang souchong. It's a, traditionally, pine-wood smoked black tea. Tasty, tasty smokiness. I think I'm in love.

Just about to settle down with some coffee and NOM conference reporting. (I'm very grateful for those who start conference threads, especially since I finally have zero interest in actually tuning in to the series itself.)
