I love the Negroni! I prefer the "Tango" Negroni" with the homemade vermouth. If you're ever in CLE again, send me a PM, would love to meet over drinks at VTR.

VTR is such a great bar. The ramos gin fizz is incredible. A nice, easy 5 minute walk, too.

For home drinking, i've fallen in love with old weller antique 107. Really good wheated bourbon and a great bargain at $22 a bottle. Worth it at almost twice the price if you ask me. Makes a great old fashioned. Would be my go to if i could get it in ohio.

I used to have some friends whose parents were always bringing them this incredible stuff from mexico. I have no idea what it was called (something ridiculously unspecific like "Agave," maybe), but I think it was the equivalent of, like, 8$ a bottle or something. Those were the days. Pools, margaritas, sun, sweat, cut grass....

There's a tequila bar in Boulder that attracts all the 35-year-old "young-at-hearts" (terrible scene, terrible music), but they do have some sort of very tasty frozen chili tequila shot. It might involve mangoes.

In regards to the beginner scotch discussion that was happening in RFT, I think glenfiddich 12 and glenkinchie 12 are both good bottles to start out on, in terms of taste and availability (and price). Glenkinchie 12 remains one of my favorites, actually, even though I haven't been drinking much whisky lately. Something about springtime, I guess. A lot of white wine, bad sake, and pastis.

There's something to be said for cooking yourself dinner and having a couple of drinks, too. I do a lot of my best thinking at about 12:30AM after a few glasses. I'm not saying that's something you should do every night, but there's a purity to it, sort of like taking yourself out for dinner. It promotes introspection, maybe, and imagination. I'm a big fan of solitude in general, so I'm probably biased, but I generally think that if you can't stand your own company or entertain yourself; well, it's something to work on. But yeah, open a bottle of wine, cook yourself dinner - try something new, experiment - and enjoy your own company once in a while.

OK just finished my bottle of Whippersnapper Whiskey (so so good, esp for the price), looking for another sipping whiskey that's interesting, $20-30 price range. Or perhaps bourbon
