    Yay for a day devoted to drunken-ness! I am so gettin' my green on tomorrow. I've never celebrated St. Paddy's day out of stubborness, but this year I shall heed to my Irish roots and proceed to get smashed on green beer and listen to bad music.

    Guinness.....mmmmmmmm (It was love at first sight I tell ya...) The drink of gods I would say.....

    But, when I dont want to put my digestive system thru quite as much abuse, then it has to be a lovely pint (or 9...) of Kilkenny.....

    not drinking

    Alas I'm off beer this month, last w/e in Feb I was drinking Thurs- Sun inclusive, then went out and tuesday and had about the recommended weekly allowance so I'm stopping for march (not just because it's lent for any catholics out there, pure coincedence )
    still, I'll be attacking every bar in Edinbrugh over easter to make up for it.

    As far as beer goes, I'll drink bud when I don't feel like thinking too hard about what I want to drink. But if I want good beer, I go for the dark ales, i.e. Amberbock, Shinerbock and pretty much anything with a bock after it. Guinness is definitely an acquired taste! And Guinness Stout should only be atempted by a professional.

    Other than beer, I'll drink wine, preferable a Merlot, and rum! Straight or mixed. Doesn't matter. As long as it's not that bacardi garbage. Blech. Give me Puerto Rican or give me death!

    I've found a few recipies for a "Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster"-

    1 oz. EverClear
    4 oz. Bombay Sapphire or Jeremiah Weed
    4 oz. Cold Wild Turkey
    2 oz. Herredura Tequila
    5 oz. Rum
    1 worm from bottle of Mezcal
    2 oz. Gatorade
    35 cl Tia Maria« coffee liqueur
    35 cl vodka
    17.5 cl cherry brandy
    1 dash lime juice
    7-Up« soda
    dry cider

    Method Pour the tia maria, vodka and cherry brandy together into a pint glass. Add a dash of lime juice. Fill with equal amounts of dry cider and 7-up, and add ice cubes
    * 1 1/2 shots 151 Proof Rum
    * 1/4 shot Tequila
    * 1/4 shot Gin
    * 2/3 shot Triple Sec
    * 1 shot Blue Curacao
    * 1 dash Bitters

    The Bartender's Best Friend also has a recipe for the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster as follows:

    1/2 ounce vodka 1/2 ounce triple sec 1/2 ounce Yukon Jack liqueur 1/2 ounce peach schnapps 1/2 ounce Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice 1/2 ounce cranberry juice lemon-lime soda

    Build in an ice-filled Collins glass, filling it with the soda. Stir with a long straw.

    I take it people here have heard of the 'Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster'. I know how to sorta simulate one. It's called 'Rusty Nails' and it's Australian... One part Chivas Regal and one part Drambuie. That's all there is to it. No ice(heaven forbid!!!) and served in a warmed glass(like cognac).

    Try drinking a couple of those and still staying upright...

    And then there is the (edited) Monthy Pyton joke... "What is the similarity between Bud and making love in a canoe?"... :-)

    !
    I have been searching for 7 months to find a us importer of scrumpy jack. please help me to end my quest. - I work in a restaurant and also developed and maintain their web site in Nebraska, Scrumpy Jacks.

    I was lucky, or cursed however you want to look at it, to have one of fantastic hard ciders after opening night. Since that day I have been cursed with what has been a endless task of finding an importer. This is some of the greatest news of my life....well at least the last 7 months anyway.

    If you could have pitty on my situation- Could you provide me with name for the importer or the establishment that you have found that serves this beverage.

    I was just getting ready to take a skip over the pond and fill my suitcase.


    as for all the other drinks...I must say I am a big Jameson and Bushmills fan. I end each day with a nice warm 4 finger glass of one or the other.

    well its been a 22 hour day and 16 fingers...

    Those bastards! I just realized that they didn't bring me my chile relleno. I ordered a carnitas dinner, and a combination including two tacos and a chile relleno! I had had quite a bit to drink by the time the food arrived, so I guess I just didn't notice.

    phazedout, I definitely agree with you that draft is best, and west is better (how about in Doolin, if you're in that end of the country?), but if you're here in the US and can't get out to a bar, the cans with the nitro thingies in them are a fair compromise - and they are much better than "the shite" (the stuff in the bottles, ugh!).

    As to doolin, I have a friend who's fiance's from Newquay (formerly Burren) in north clare, so I've had a few pinties in Doolin, 'tis indeed lovely.

    I generally avoid cider, it f**ks up my stoumach no end Just gave my Monaghan friends suggestion. I drank Scrumpy when I was living in cork as I could get a six pack of 500ml cans for 5 punts - a bargin when on a budget.

    Have you tried snakebite? half cider half larger in a pint glass (or, for the real sumbags, pop the larger, drink off half it and then top up the can with Cider -excellent when "knacker drinking"*
    I do like the bushmills and wil be in Scotland over easter so I'll try some local ones. Iain Banks (see sig) has produced a book on scottish whiskys and distelleries so I'll purchas eand bring with

    Since we're on the topic of Guinness (which I've drunk for about 17 years - almost check my B'day in profile) can I say I agree with you amy, bottled or canned is p*sswater - the only way to have it is draft, and even then check which dya of the week the bar cleans the pipes, preferebly buy it that evening.

    WillieStealAndHow, it's no wonder you can't tell between whiskey and paint thinner if all you've tried is Bushmill's and Jameson's... (no offense to Bushmill's and Jameson's drinkers, but there's just nothing like a good Scotch whisky - no "e" when you're talking about the stuff from Scotland, please!).

    Harrdy, I've tried ice wine. I do like dessert wines, but only in their proper place - I could never drink one except as a sweet treat, after a meal, in the evening. Tokaj (a Hungarian sweet wine) is good for that, as is a blueberry wine I get here in the US, by a vineyard named Alba.

    I love Lyta, if you ever think of the name of that almost-black single malt, please post it here!

    Me, I like single malt whiskey. Tobermory and Oban are among my faves. Anybody else?
    I have to agree with you on both the Bud and the whiskey issue, Amy.
    Though my favs in terms of single malt are Braes of Glenlivet and Dalwhinnie.
    But Oban is fine with me, too.
    There is also an almost black one I tried once but I forgot it's name.

    As for Guinness I have to say that I like it BUT only draft and I can drink a max of three pints. Then I switch to Cider. Bulmers is my favorite there.

    While in germany I only drink Becks and Hefeweizen.

    In wines I prefer chilenian, south african or australian and most definitely spanish red wines.
    Can you say Rioja?

    I only drink beer when I am roaming with friends... y'know? Do as they do? Maybe I shouldn't, but what the heck...

    Privately (at home) I drink port wine and cider, but only on weekends (personal rule to avoid any problems with the stuff).

    I also like some other sweet wines, like "Beerenauslese" (have no idea how that is called in english, means "selected berries") or Icewine. Some taste quite good, with a blue cheese (don't know if that's the right name, was the only one my translator knew)...
    With the right meal I also like red wine. I don't drink any white wine, maybe because the first time I drank to much (and that was the first time I drank anyway) it was with white wine... I can't stand it anymore 8-)
