i should have specified; it was after a couple vodka sodas. Was trying to get to the point where I could drink vodka straight and semi-enjoy it.

I'm also a gigantic lightweight.

my dad keeps a bottle of stoli and a martini glass in his freezer. he will fill the martini glass with that ice cold, syrupy vodka and sip it while watching the hockey game. (he's such a tough guy, though. when he played hockey he once took a stick to the face, had the gash stitched up without anesthesia, and went back out to play)

Hmm... I may have to make an informational post soon about why vodka sucks.

Slightly related, I had a really good Manhattan the other night at Lovely Day in NYC. I always like their drinks.

I heard about it the day before tickets went on sale. Going to the opening night where I'll attempt to drink my money's worth.

Eh, Vodka doesn't really suck, but it's not all that interesting either. Bourbon and Gin are wear it's at from a cocktail standpoint.

If you should ever find yourself with a free night in Cleveland, I highly recommend drinking here. The place is not as nearly pretentious as the website would have you believe. The Aviation, Negroni, and Corpse Reviver are all well worth having.

Just gonna leave this here

"Son, never trust a man who doesn't drink because he's probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. They're the judges, the meddlers. And, son, never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. They're usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that they're a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You can't trust a man who's afraid of himself. But sometimes, son, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. It's damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when he's heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl."

Yeah I've got that too, but I'm thinking about taking a chance on this barolo. It's supposed to be on the tamer side... we shall see, maybe I'll go with something else.

If Ron Swanson has taught us anything, it is the benefits of Snake Juice:

Drinking a really terrible manhattan while waiting for my wife at a restaurant bar that's populated by drunk middle-aged women talking about their favorite movies. One woman doesn't watch movies that take place overseas. Another awful manhattan please, bartender...

Here is an ugly cocktail of fresh-squeezed blood orange juice (I like the pulp), aperol, and vodka. Desperate times.

ugly-beautiful ^ synth.

 

re: vodka. a friend made Grey Goose (I think) martinis last night and I was pleasantly surprised. I usually like gin martinis for more flavor, but there's something to be said for the cleanliness of the vodka. Put it this way, I wouldn't turn one down if someone was making them again.

 

oh and, re: Ron Swanson. I saw Nick Offerman do a stand up show last week. He was actually a cross between Ron Swanson and Duke Silver IRL. And he's actually married to Tammy #2.

Looks like a highbrow screwdriver with a dead goldfish in it. That said, it looks delicious.

In a way, I'm almost sorry to learn that you know so much about a network TV show (even if it is a very good one). I've always imagined you as one who is too busy with interests far more interesting television. I know this probably doesn't read this way, but this is supposed to be a complement.
