Have a seat at Bar COVID-19!

Recommended Posts

I keep a well stocked liquor cabinet for just such emergencies. Bourbon and Coke Zero are my regular, but being locked down for an extended period it gets boring. Tonight I'm going with Diet 7Up and Hornitos. Not bad if I do say so myself. Diet 7Up is severely underrated. It's better than regular 7Up. Have a good stash of Platinum 7X vodka if the Hornitos runs low.

Jack Daniels, Tito’s, Tequila.

Beer in the cooler on the back patio.  I just keep restocking and re-icing.

Its like I’m living at a BBQ cookoff, minus the generator hum.

And I like a generator hum.  (Not after a Hurricane though)

You can always crank up the lawn mower and let it idle in the yard.

Improvise, adapt, overcome.

Mixer bourbon and coke zero is my weakness. Sorry liver. 

Jim Beam Black is a helluva bargain. 1.75L are $27 a bottle if you buy a case at Spec's. I prefer Maker's Mark, but for half price, JBB ain't bad.

We got into espolon reposado and topo and lots of lime juice and a splash of Cointreau tonight.

Fajita agogo delivers cheaper than all the big hitters and is pretty similar.

1.75L of skol vodka goes for about $12.  that's two whole days’ worth of drinking for the cost of an enchilada dinner.

Same, though I'll use TX or Bulleit -- I'm not a savage. That and Ranch Water.

Bulleit Bourbon with a little water.

That's my style as well. On top of the drinks also had 200mg of an edible. It's alright

Tito’s and Topo. And some wax. I can’t fuck with dark liquor at all.

Not a fan of sparkling water by itself but it does make a good mixer. Topo lime and vodka does the trick.

Old Raj Blue, Bulleit Rye, Knob Bourbon. Martinis, Old Fashioneds (and a Green Hat every now and then) and Vieux Carré round out my quarantinis.

If you wanna go cheap, Evan Williams BiB ($21) and Benchmark ($16) are better choices.

We've got a group of 6 guys from HS days A couple live in different god forsaken places in the country.  We have a group text that keeps everyone up to date on what's going on, and is just a general party line. 

Tonight at 6:00 EST we're all sitting in on a social distancing, cocktail hour, and mini music festival courtesy of our bud in Ar-kansas.

1:1 mix of lemon lime gatorade and vanilla rum used to be my riot punch in college. Now every time I try and make it I get nothing but flashbacks to the times I would projectile vomit like a yard sprinkler.

Benchmark is damn good at that price point.  BTrace FTMFW.  

Tonight was classic daiquiris.  Last night, mai tais.  I've damn near kilt my rum supply this weekend. 

Friday was to-go margaritas, then some at-home margaritas, then a bunch of various and sundry bourbons that I don't recall.  Closed Pandora and stumbled to bed at 445, which makes for a ruff Saturday at my age.

Blantons on the rocks x4 after.

 

Happy Easter!

Posted this before in the bourbon thread,
But my supply is good for the duration.
So ready to have people over to share though.
Miss my bourbon and cigar friends so damn much. We’ve resorted to Zoom drinking sessions each night around 9:00.
But it ain’t the same.

Just finished the bottle of Redbreast 15 that had been hiding in the back of my liquor cabinet for 12 years. Well, not so much hiding, but I kept getting gifted new bottles and it never made it into the rotation. I has sad.
