And what exactly, do tell, is wrong with ordering a Long Island Iced Tea?

I suspect that one or both authors of this fine piece of internet journalism might not know what the fuck they are talking about.

I'm even more baffled by black and tan being on there.

It appears the college session has started. Everyone moving into their dorms or apartments and getting a leg up on their booze cred. I'm surprised that the Pink Squirrel or Cosmopolitan didn't make the cut.

Really....the Black and Tan??? What else? Do you disparage the Manhattan? The Vodka Collins? What about the CubaLibre or the Screwdriver? Are the potential new leaders of academia so willing to part with the Ramos Fizz that they would discard its holiday breakfast attributes?

Before I'd sign on to the esteemed opinion of this fraternal proclamation I'd like to hear their obviously deeply researched treatise of the "circle jerk".

Ordering a Black & Tan in an Irish bar might be a mistake though...

In the US there are a lot of Irish pubs that are really just bars run by someone who might have an Irish grandparent or something like that. One drink common in such establishments is the Irish carbomb. Once my brother and I went into an Irish pub in Germany, staffed by real Irish people. When my brother ordered an Irish carbomb he got a dirty look. It didn't help that this was about a week after the Omagh bombing.

I also don't recognize the shame in any of this... but what people expect from bars seems like it's changing. I'm Sick of being in a bar when it's not busy and having the bartender get pissy cause I ordered something other than a beer.

I was in the Viceroy about a week after I took R.A. and his girlfriend there and a couple walks in and she orders an Appletini.

Janice the bartendress gives here a look and says, deadpan, "Seriously?"

● Vodka Tonic (dont see the problem)

● Vodka Redbull (it was a long day)

● Jagerbombs (no excuse)

● Hard cider (cider is awesome, especially scrumpy)

● Black & tan (WTF!?!?)

● ____tini (it was a martini...so no problem I hope)

● White Russian (If its good enough for the dude)

● Long Island Iced Tea

To be honest most of these drinks on this list are acceptable...only a few are truely shit.
Drunk? I'm not drunk! You wouldn't dare accuse me of that if I was s0ber!
