I'd have to say it is rare I will spend time near a politician unless drink is involved. Those guys know their market. Welcome to the party

About me: I like cheap vodka- but not so cheap where it has that rubbing alcohol flavor- I do have some dignity- I mean cheap as in a plastic handle is perfectly acceptable.

I love food in my drinks... Hefeweizens (with lemon), Dirty Martini's (with bleu cheese olives), Mojitos (with cucumbers) and Bloody Mary's (with bacon or shrimp). I am open to suggestions as to other delicious combinations
pour amaretto liqueur over vanilla ice cream like syrup. also welcome

Also try gin or vodka poured over orange or lemon sorbet, or whisk(e)y over coffee (or fudge or toffee or "Rocky Road") ice cream.

Hello to all,

New member and young'un (21) here. I've often enjoyed reading everyone's posts here while inebriated and figured it was about time I joined seeing as before I was what would be considered a "stalker" which I assure you all I am not... A few random yet useful things about me:

Favourite (I'm Canadian, so yes. I spell things "weirdly") drinks: Scotch, Canadian rye, Gin Martini's, good tequila (100% agave).

Favourite activities: Skiing (with a flask), boating (with a flask), and automotive restoration and repair (with a flask...or two)

Favourite quotes: "In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing." - Theodore Roosevelt.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places." - Ernest Hemingway

Lookin' forward to getting to know some of you interesting and wonderful crazies. Cheers all!

Thanks Patchez...

I'd gladly buy everyone a round of good Canadian rye as I simply love the stuff but I'm afraid on my student budget it might be a while! Hahah!

Cheers! - Davey

Welcome to the board young man. Remember to drink responsibly. Slow and steady wins the race. Do as I say and not as I do.

Until that I was ready to call bullshit.

That Teddy quote always reminds me of firefly. Also 160 proof vodka while effective hangover cure, certainly isn't the smoothest route.

on another note, i hardly see any of the new people actually using this thread, say if you want to get on here i think this is the best way to introduce yourself, but they don't want to use it. oh well.

The ones that aren't immediately banned as bots, such as, "d69", usually have their first post moved here or they receive a polite P.M. asking them to introduce themselves on this thread. Sadly, many new members either don't post at all or just make one or two posts and then vanish.

Hello. I thought I'd introduce myself, since that seems to be the general consensus on the subject. I am MShaedanath, a second Generation Modern Drunkard. Taught to tend bar at the young age of... well, whatever the age was, I seem to have forgotten, I am the child of one of the former users on this forum, back during the year... 2004-2005? I think? Well, regardless, I am the child of Beatnik Mao, and since he seems to have departed for this medium, offer my various rantings in his stead.

Thanks.
