Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?

645 posts in this topic

Ordinarily, I only have a drink or two on Fridays or Saturdays, but today was a LONG day with two kids bouncing off the walls.

I am celebrating the quiet in my home with a small glass of Lagavulin 16. This is my usual drink of choice.

I wasn't a scotch drinker until about a year ago. I was tipped off onto The Lagavulin, bought it, and it is the best scotch I've ever tried. Love the stuff! Usually pour a small glass every Friday and Saturday nights. No ice, just straight up. Love it!

Anyone else enjoying the drink tonight?

I am enjoying my tap water from my faucet. I am not much of a drinker, an occasional beer or wine is enough to make me red face.


Cheers to you.

(By the way, one of my best friends loves the scotch more than I do and also lives in Irvine. In case you ever need a Scotch buddy or something)

Yeah. Tonight is the evening of Yom Kippur, and I'm (technically) Jewish. I only observe one piece of the tradition this holiday: remembering the deceased - in this case, my mom's father, who passed away almost 3 years ago. I don't fast or go to synagogue, but it's one of the few times a year when I'll pull out the vodka. I'll have a vodka tonic or two, since it used to be his favorite drink. I remember being three years old and sharing them with him (1). And tomorrow, mom and I are going to the range together when dad goes to synagogue. Dad observes the high holidays in his way, but since mom and I are remembering her father (dad's parents are still alive and well; I'm not neglecting them in this), we're doing what he would have wanted us to do - not that we mind. So, yes, I'm enjoying the drink, but it isn't rowdy kids causing it. ------ (1) Lest you think he was doing something wrong by sharing a vodka tonic with a three year old, I'll mention that he had the vodka and I had the tonic water. He didn't mix it then offer me any. He'd just start drinking the vodka straight up, and give me a cup of tonic water. I'm one of the few people I know who drinks tonic water straight up, although since turning 21, there have been better options.

I'm pretty sure (technically) that food and drink are prohibited during Yom Kippur. I just poured myself a little scotch.

Black Russian: 3oz vodka, 3 oz Kahlua, six ice cubes and a pipe. The pipe adds a flavor to each sip that is magical. mmmmm

I'm having a nip off the scotch tonight. Won't get to tomorrow, and I worked my ass off today - tired, and want a tasty beverage to sip on.

evan williams and mtn dew here.

Man, I love the South. That sounds like college all over again. We'd drink EW and mix with whatever was on hand....even Gatorade.

No drinking yesterday or today....just a couple of cups of coffee before I get ready for work.

I'm enjoying a John Daly and watching the Colts...

Jeremiah Weed came out with a "Half and Half" of sweet tea vodka and lemonade. Pretty good stuff.

Dang... I'm not even halfway through my bottle of sweet tea vodka and this comes out. Well, another trip to BevMo for me.

I love Firefly...Just great stuff.

This half and half is very good, but needs a bit more bite in my opinion. I believe it's only about 13% ABV
