Kraken and Tonic

"Excellent. Tastes distinctly like cocoa puffs! "

Left hand brewery milk stout

"Ive had this in Boston. Its better in Colorado. Run through a nitro tap at The Mayor of Old Town in Ft Collins. If you like beer you should visit. Over 100 beers on tap and a constantly updated menu as kegs kick and are replaced! "

Odell 90 Shilling

"Tasty colorado brew. Enjoyed in ft collins."

Domaine Faiveley Volnay 2009

"An awesome Burgundy. Sunday dinner. At my parents house. This wine will keep. Its gorgeous right now though!"

Savannah-Chanelle Vineyards Pinot Noir 2002

"Dug deep in my wone closet and pulled out this beauty. A gift from a friend its held up really well -- which makes sense since its pinot the noble grape of burgundy and they can cellar. Why drink an 11 year old wine tonight? Mardi Gras... Permitez le bons temps roulez! "

Avery Brewing Ellies Brown Ale

"I like this my wife doesn't. Very chocolate and coffee flavored and rich. Not your typical off-dry brown ale. This is from Boulder CO. Its worth a try, but not cheap at $12/six pack."

Karbach Brewing Sympathy for The Lager

"Karbach is a Houston TX based brewery. This ia the only kf their beers that i tried and its good. A very complex surprisingly hoppy lager. Maybe its the Germanic heritage of Texas but they've got some of the most interesting lagers I've tasted... While most microbrwers so ales and pale ales Texans are doing sone interesting, different stuff. Worth a try. This image was taken at the salt lick in driftwood tx."

Rahr & Sons Rahrs Blonde

"A tasty, complex lager out of Fort Worth, TX. Not your typical American lager. "

St Arnold Elissa IPA

"A tasty beer out of Houston TX that i had on my recent trip to the Independent Republic of Texas."

commented on martini:

What sort if vermouth? Good with a noilly pratt its a but more floral and lighter than martini & rossi. Onions techincally make it a gibson. A delicious drink as well.

commented on Ward 8:

Forrest, I agree, but I was low on Rye and had an abundance of Bourbon. One of the places I use for recipes, has actually changed this to bourbon, which is interesting, because the date of origin of this drink actually is the first age of rye back in the 20s.

Ted, I did use triple sec in the drink. I also used the triple sec to rim the glass because it holds the salt better than lime juice. (someone on SMD said it worked better and they were right). BTW, I used Cuervo Gold,..nothing to grand.

The Stinger is on my list of "to do"s. I'm waiting for Jan 1st when there is no more booze tax, then I'll stock up.

My comment about Dry beer meant EVERYONE made a Dry beer, it was a big fad that died out. Now everyone is producing an Ocktoberfest and a Pumpkin Ale. If it IS a fad too, I hope only the best remain when it all shakes out. Re: The Black IPA, I will take your word on its lack of hoppiness, and definitley try it (if I can find it!) Thanks Ted.

Ted, I have been lucky enough to sample some amazing liquors, and mostly some rare Scotch Whisky. That Cragganmore was very nice (I only got a sample sized glass). I've also had The Macallan 25 year which now sells for near $600 dollars a bottle, the Chivas Regal 21 year old Royal Salute, and The Lagavulin 1991 Double-Matured. All amazing and unique in their own right. I like the variety of contributions you have submitted here. Keep spreading the word and pouring the drinks! -Bartender

I took the liberty of uprighting your El Presidente.

That is an interesting story about Hemingway and the sidecar. Not a big fan of Hemingway, however I will not hold it against this fine beverage.

If you are low on Black Rum, let me suggest The Kraken. It is a seriously dark rum that goes well with mixed drinks of all types, or even neat or on ice. The best part is that you can buy a 1.75 liter bottle for under $30 and it has 47% abv!

You have to try the Chambord in the margarita. It's an extremely different twist compared to the standard "orange" accompaniment associated with standard margaritas.
