"we changed the recipe."
Ha! He didn't know how to make a sazerac and that was his answer for why it changed.

The worst "we changed the recipe" experience I had was in Mexico. Margaritas are simple. Equal portions of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Seems simple enough until you stay a week at an all-inclusive resort in Puerto Vallarta for your mother-in-law's birthday. I had margaritas without lime juice, margaritas without triple sec, and margaritas without tequila. No margarita was the same from one to the next. Even when I told the bar staff how to make a margarita, they found some way to screw it up.

Drinking Admiral Nelson's spiced rum since the liquor store has been out of Kentucky Deluxe.

This stuff is super drinkable, but the low ABV is kind of a bummer. I like more of a kick.
It's inevitable. 80 proof becomes watery tasting once you get used to over proofed stuff.

That's true. A few years back, there a was a case of Wray & Nephew white rum available for a helluva deal, so I became quite used to the flavor of overproof daiqhiris and swigs of lovely burn from the bottle. Going back to 80 proof seemed almost hollow somehow.

Rum? I never touch the stuff.



I gargle and repeat.

Ice water with cucumber and lemongrass.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a drunk man tortilla chips, Velveeta and a hair dryer and he has nachos.

Beefeater Gin and fresh squeezed lemonade.

It's April 3rd and snowing like fuck-all here in Minnesota. Alas, my refusal in submitting to the inclement weather has been well bolstered by a tall springtime drink served in a Mason jar with plenty of ice. It will be a good day to get drunk, fire up the sauna and periodically roll around in the snow.

I'm daydreaming of NOLA. Minnesota is taking a back seat while I enjoy this sazerac.

Some Kentucky Deluxe. "Some" because the liquor store's card machine was out and I only had enough cash for one bottle.

Now, Sierra Nevada's Hop Bullet double IPA. Good stuff.
