    it is now after 10:00PM and just got home from a party that featured Coors Light. So I can't say I've been drinking beer but now have a scotch in hand to get the taste of the Coors out of my mouth.

    Have you ever had a "prairie fire"?

    It's a shot of tequila with a dash of tobasco. In my neck of the woods it's usually a dare or birthday shot(I sometimes call them birthday candles) but I genuinely like them. The taste of tequila with a little heat? Yum!

    Hmmm Assaad,
    Never heard of it... I googled it, and I'm intrigued.

    As for hot or spicy tequila drinks... tabasco is blase' when it comes to spicing up your "sangria"... I like to use Ground Zero Da Bomb... That'll get your attention.

    I usually have a shot of tequila in a hollowed out jalapeño, which is set on fire to warm up the tequila and release some of the heat from the pepper into the drink... man those are good.
    But, you have to be careful, when you light something that contains a highly flammable liquid, while holding it.
    You eat the pepper of course after blowing it out and drinking the tequila.

    Lawrence, I thought you might since you said you were drinking Turkish Coffee. Personally, I drink Lebanese coffee (because I am Lebanese and grew up around it and also because it tastes the same and is a quicker, easier way to make it) and I always use cardamom.

    Monday night I mixed some Jim Beam Red Stag with a little ginger ale to go with a bowl of Connoisseur's Choice. The mixture of ginger ale with the Black Cherry flavor of the Red Stag was great. Kind of surprised me, because I've never mixed Jim Beam with ginger ale before, and wasn't quite sure how it'd go. It turned out marvelous though, and made the Connoisseur's Choice taste even better.

    I too am a Lebanese coffee fan. I wasn't aware that there was a difference between Turkish and Lebanese coffee. I have had both and they seem to be the same. I always use cardamom as well. My girl friend is Lebanese and laughed at me when I served her what I called Turkish coffee and told me it was Lebanese coffee. I just thought that basically any fine ground coffee cooked on a stove top was pretty much the same.

    On the topic of the thread though, I am drinking a glass of iced water with 1 1/2 fingers of Glen Morangie Lasanta on the side.

    Turkish coffee is the same coffee the preparation is just different. For Turkish you put the coffee in the water before it boils.

    Appropriately, my second post to this forum occurs in this thread. I am enjoying a Janet's Brown Ale, which I brewed from Mike "Tasty" McDole's excellent recipe!

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    Seeing as I just started the work day, coffee.

    And when the work day is almost over, more coffee.

    Now, I've noticed a tendency for this forum to get rather silly.

    So I got the OK from the Dr that the blood clots are gone. That means two fingers of George T Stagg are in my finger cutout highball glass. Thank you Mr Stagg, ambrosia. I paired this up with a small bowl of Baron's Mystery and wow, this stuff is good, more on that later.

    In the morning( for me that is around 11 am) I begin with either Mayorga !00% Organic Cafe Cubano or Starbucks French Roast or Cafe Du Monde coffee's. I then switch to Luzianne decaf iced tea until it is time for my adult libation. I will then take a couple of shots of my Tito Vodka( small batch out of Texas, 6 times refined) mix it with Schweppes diet tonic water and a splash of cranberry juice. This is my routine every day. I always have my one drink before dinner, once in a great while I will have two. I then switch back to the iced tea after dinner and until I go to bed. I always one of these drinks in my hand while I am smoking.

    Right at this moment, a glass of a Chilean organic Cabernet Sauvignon which a client/friend asked me to taste for her as I am a wine and beer judge as you would expect of someone who does what I do. I have a batch of limoncello that I need to taste, after a glass or two of water. I make limoncello and want to see if this batch rolls my socks up and down like its supposed to. A perfect summertime refresher drink for those of you who live in southern states - a shot of freezer cold limoncello at 120 proof will cool even the most overheated day. Think of lemon meringue pie without the meringuee and no crust, in liquid form with a solid alcohol kick! I've got to make up enough of it to last the whole summer as I age it for nearly 3 months before I bottle and this stuff is pretty popular when the weather turns warm up here. Liquid sunshine as one of my friends says!

    Be careful what you wish for, as you just might get it.

    Strong black tea with milk and sugar. It's ten in the morning in December. First pipe of the day: Wessex Red Virginia Flake. Enough nicotine to help me recover from slow depletion during the night.

    Going to switch to Rattrays Accountants Mixture and Vietnamese Coffee at lunch.

    Cheap bar Scotch at the cocktail hour, and several types of tobacco, depending on bowl, bar customer density, mood, and which cigar-puffing drip sits next to me.

    OK so I dumped that swill out, boy it was nasty. Got a splash of The Speyside. A single malt that is smokey and a little sweet, a bit of branch to bring out the sweetness and 3 cubes. Nice.

    Grangestone 18yr old scotch with a touch of distilled water. Not too much at all though you'll ruin it.

    So tonight is Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select. Not bad, just a tad sweet which the branch brings out, 3 cubes. Like all the other Jack's I have tried though it is a bit one denominational, no hidden flavors.

    The second for tonight is knob Hill. Slightly sweet, spicy and a bit vanilla. Better than the Jack.
