Somebody is a few steps ahead of you....
Best Bloody Mary I have ever had is served with this, a skewer of bacon, and various other accompaniments at the mid-mountain lodge on A-basin: http://www.arapahoebasin.com/ABasin/mountain/dining/black-mountain.aspx
Black pepper/spice on the rim as well. Made the trip up there worth it most days just for a couple of runs and a bloody.
I'm not surprised. There is a flavor for everything now, but it doesn't mean its any good.
This just came out:
Does it make you want to drink it all night? I hope not.
Black Mountain Lodge is where it's at. Unfortunately, the last time I was there was before the full bar was finished. Next time I'm there I'll have to try one. Great mountain though, especially for spring skiing.
Read the post above yours bro.
I'm officially declaring Eagle Rare as my favorite mid-tier bourbon. Haters can hate.
Looks like they only sell that hooch in Texas. So why don't you try it for yourself and STFU mmmk?
Just saw an ad for Jim Beam: Devil's Choice. Anybody had it? Apparently it's bourbon extracted from the barrel wood.
I personally like it, but I also like the taste if Jim Beam. To me it tastes like a more spicy version of Jim Beam but I think it is easier to drink. It's not a bad bourbon if you aren't looking to spend too much money on a fifth.
For sipping, it tastes just like your average mid to bottom tier whiskey. If you've got the money, spend it on the top tier bourbons mentioned in this thread. If you're making a bourbon-based cocktail (mint julep, whiskey sour, etc) it works just fine.
That's what I figured, thanks.
Has anyone tried this?
I have a bottle of vodka I threw a bunch of black peppercorns in for fun and it makes really good bloody Marys. We have this thing http://www.englishteastore.com/tea-...ku=AINF_M175&gclid=CKvP7fyK7q4CFUZN4AodQk1IJA that you can open and makes it easy to filter.
And on the topic of bourbon, yes to eagle rare. It's underrated, cheap enough for cocktails and smooth enough to drink neat.
Same company that oversees No. 7 and Woodford.
comes in 15, 20 and 23 year old.
roughly $40 for a fifth...could be rather elusive, i've only seen it at frugal mcdougal, the liquor warehouse on the NC/SC border.
these two are really good for how cheap they are.
Fighting Cock is deadly. First time I had it was my big bro little bro night, also the first time I ever pissed myself drunk.
if you're not careful that will happen.
Malt brought a handle of this up to Auburn one time.... regular old forester though. Wasn't all that bad.
my friend is a bartender in nyc over the summer and she said fighting cock was really popular this past year. I think its made by the same distillery that makes evan william's.
It makes good old fashionzzz because of the rye and stuff and also good for shots out of tupperware
