Anyone enjoying the drink tonight? - Page 23

post #397 of 498
Working on a pale ale that I made for Christmas. Trying to finish it off to make room in the kegerator for the next homebrew.

Nah, but your wife lent me a pair of hers! b2_tongue.gif

Chances are, if there's an umbrella in it, I'll love it...

Tonight, with wind chills in the single digits, I have a nice cup of hot chocolate.

Ok......go back to the Canadian Mist!

old school...

 

you might go easy on the bitters, and have the bartender add a few more if too sweet. Some recipes have sugar, I guess, to offset the bitters.

 

Depends on the recipe and the bourbon 

 

My dad makes mine … My bartender days ended about 35 years ago. Dad's didn't end - old school.

Do you like whiskey? If not, it probably isn't the drink for you.

I like whisky!

 

Oh, sorry, you weren't asking me. :8)

Laphroaig cask strength. Top lip too numb to say more.

Yes, but it's whiskey over ice with sugar and bitters and a twist

And. I can't forget the maraschino cherry

And if you want to make it more palatable, my dad used to add a little 7-up

I don't see your point. I was only telling the OP that if he doesn't like whiskey, then he likely won't care for an Old Fashioned. After all, it's a whiskey cocktail.

Okay -- my point is that it's only whiskey-based. 

 

Add sugar, bitters, cherry, and a twist ... and if it's too old school, add a dollop of 7-Up/Sprite, and is it anything like whiskey?

 

If you don't add a little 7, then I don't go for it... tried it both ways.... those guys in the '40-50's were hard core.

Not a big deal. If he likes bourbon in the least, he ought to try it old-school with the 7-Up ready on the side, and pour lightly to taste

That's my point exactly. If you go into a bar and say "I'll take an Old Fashioned", you're probably going to get whiskey (likely bourbon), bitters, simple syrup, and a twist. If you don't like whiskey, or if you don't like it when it's particularly strong, then you add something else, like Sprite or 7 Up.

 

So my point to the OP was, be sure you like whiskey before you walk into a bar and ask for an Old Fashioned. Even when mixed with other things, whiskey still tastes like whiskey, and a lot of people are turned off by it.

Agreed.

I know. I was surprised to learn this unfortunate fact as well.

Does Keystone Light count?
