I like good tequilas here and there. That's really the only liquor I somewhat enjoy and can tolerate. Whiskey and pretty much everything else is hard to stomach and I don't like the taste anyways

I mostly drink beer when I do sip. Fire ass IPA's specifically. I drink wine sometimes too if it's offered. My ex liked sauvignon blanc I guess cuz it doesn't stain your teeth and has less sugar than reds (pretty sure all wine has the same sugar content tho) so that grew on me

What are your preferred tequilas?  I don't drink it much but Patron Silver has been a staple when I do shoot it.  For mixes I stick with standard garbage like Cuervo.

Drinks I Invented #1

The Malibapple:
1 part Malibu
3 parts apple cider

Combine in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake, strain into tumbler over ice.  No garnish necessary.

This is probably the most boring of the drinks I've invented.

Try it and share your thoughts.

I really like drinking amaretto 'neat' as a digestif, but my wife finds it really strange and thinks I'm on the path to alcoholism if I don't mix it with something like Southern Comfort in a social setting. How do I convince my wife that the Italians aren't all crazy and might be on to something with casual liqueur consumption?

Doesn't southern comfort have a higher alcohol %?

I tried pointing out that her vodka sodas contain more alcohol than my two fingers of amaretto, and the response was something like 'it's more about drinking alcohol straight of out of bottle'. I didn't bring up shots because I value the peace of my home life.

She's seen me try woodwork. Any pretense of my robust manhood is long gone.

it's cultivated to drink aperitifs/digestifs in that way. europeans drink comparatively little. no one is really getting smashed off amaretto.

let me know the next time a homeless person shuffles into a liquor store trying to score their daily fix of campari. nah, they go for the vodka.

Didn't one of the most well known carpenters in history ended up nailed to a cross.

are you really so insecure? you constantly accuse people of being 'womanly' and now think that the drinks you consume attest to your virility. it's very, very sad. is this just some residuum of your blue-collar background, or something? the haute bourgeoisie to which you like to affect airs and pretend you belong, jay, all drink wine and liquor. they fuss over fine details. they don't pound shitty beer whilst looking shiftily aside to their mates to make sure they're all registering how manly they're being.

about 40% of all the posts you make here now reference some sort of lawn-mowing 1950s gender roles trope. it's fucking funny.

Next time I'm pouring a post diner digestif I'm calling her a homeless wino. I'll report back with how it goes.

i think gin is the worst drink to consume at home. over here it's referred to as mother's ruin or widow's ruin or some variant. gin really puts the depressed in depressant. something about those junipers, man, gets at your emotional ganglia.

If she's telling him to mix his amaretto with a stereotypically manly drink, then I'd say i'm closer to the mark than you are.

he just said that she doesn't like him drinking alcohol neat or from the bottle.

'southern comfort' is a manly drink? lmao.

It's whisky. Crappy whisky, but still whisky. At least it's not bushmills or canadian club.

it's a fruit liquor. whiskey has to be a certain %. southern comfort is like the honey jack daniels that those brands do. it's a flavoured liquor.

my mother drinks southern comfort. i don't know any guys that do, anecdotally. though i don't have some strict typology about 'manly' and 'womanly' drinks and couldn't care less what people opt for. it's just funny that you judge that a manly drink but not an aperitif. they are both basically flavoured syrups in the same proof % range as a wine.

SoCo in Canada tends to be a drink for broke people and not divided on gender lines. My wife used the brand name because I've had a bottle of it on the bar cart for 2 years after it got left by a guest during a house party.

It might be an unfair generalization, but I look at stuff like bottles of Southern Comfort or Irish Cream as one of those kinds of drinks men moodily nurse while brooding outside on the porch or the hood of their car so they don't scare the wife with their foul mood.

men moodily drink scotch. on the rocks. irish creams are for grandparents to help them nod off at night. it's like a vermouth. southern comfort is a fruit liquor. it's totally for pansies! how many push-ups can you even do bro?

I like Irish Cream mixed with milk. That's not a drink you can abuse to get fucked up though. It along with red wine gives me bad hangovers while Apple beer doesn't.

They're probably edgy enough drinks for people who get into ugly arguments after a few cans of Stella Artois, though. But call it the slanted viewpoint of a mostly non-drinker. When I think of scotch I think of British spy movies.

I actually had a dream an hour ago about hanging out with hipsters in a German pub. The hipster guy was short and his name was Frank. He wore one of those Irish hats indoors and organized labor rallies.

His girlfriend was Puma Swede who is without a doubt the perfect looking wife.

Even though the pub was filled with Germans, they still sold pretty good BBQ chicken wings.
