    On a separate note, the fun of gin is also about the recipe… my favorite hands down (giant array of flavor agents creates complete magic) is the Sonoma based Benhams gin… give this a try, you will never go back to what you were drinking before.

    A neighbor of a buddy in Edmonds made me an incredible Gin & Tonic he learned the recipe for in Northern Spain. Big Giant Ice Balls in a Big Ballsy Glass, Hendrick's Gin, Some plant life, lime and some special tonic I can't remember the name of. I'm sure the recipe resides somewhere on the interwebs, but it didn't taste like any Gin & Tonic I'd ever drank before, and I found it Jolly Refreshing for a guy who doesn't typically do gin & tonics much. If I can find it, I'll post it, but I'm too fucking lazy to chase it down right now.

    Here is a cool and quenching cocktail recipe for a gin and sonic [tonic and soda plus spices and lime]

    Add juniper berries and some weed that looks like a dandelion or some shit.

    I dunno. Them Basque folks are weird.

    And also, apparently, my ancestors.

    Oh, is this not the non-traditional gin & tonic thread? My bad.

    I like my bourbon like I like my women...neat. Never had an Old Fashioned or a Manhattan...the blood of bootleggers runs in my veins...

    I do old fashioned without sugar. Big ice cube, bitters, a cherry. I don't go to CrossFit 6 days a week to out sugar in my drink.
    What's the point of going to CrossFit 6 days a week if you can't have a little sugar in the Old Fashioned is the question we should be asking.
    The obvious answer is pres since that tastes best anyways

    I think the point is so that he can tell people he goes to crossfit 6 times a week, as crossfitters are wont to do.

    I like the old joke:

    What's the best way to know if someone does CrossFit?

    Note to self: When you start a bourbon thread in Yellas house it quickly becomes a Scotch thread. Fags.

    Bourbon threads inevitably veer in scotch takes and vice versa. Iron law.
    Mr. Robinson favored Scotch, too.

    "Scotch still your drink, Ben?"

    "Bourbon."

    Mr. Robinson - Clearly not listening - pours Ben a tall Scotch.

    Fucking love The Graduate.

    I’m in my bourbon phase. And I’ve tasted and drank many from all over and many price points. After all that, I’ve settled on Evan Williams as my everyday house bourbon. Way underrated and over looked. In a different bottle this would be 3 times the price.

    It's probably underrated, but still Wild Turkey 101 is easily the most underrated value bourbon there is.

    Always trust in higher proof whiskey. Iron law. Even Williams at 86 proof just doesn't hold together in an old fashioned like 101.

    Watered down whiskey regardless of price point sucks. Hence, why Basil Hayden (80 proof is for fags).
    Wild turkey is the best.

    What's odd to me is it has a connotation of being like hardcore.

    So I'll be at a business thing and I'll be like y'all got any wild turkey and everyone around me is like ohhh turkey guy huh.


    Like yeah dude it's good.

    I just find a lot of it too sweet. After like one I'm like ugh get me something else.

    Need the high rye

    To preface this I always love the first one. Just can't do the second.

    It’s great house bourbon. I drank a couple wild Turkeys on the rocks today.
