i just got back from sxsw. i've literally been drunk every day and night for a week.

all hail our corporate overlords and their open bars.

did you ever see the flight of the conchords special where they go to SXSW? it's called "A Texan Odyssey" and predated the TV show. think it was only shown in New Zealand.

i've never been to SXSW, but i thought it was pretty hilarious.

It's like a silk ribbon of citrus and metal, with the most beautiful clean bitter finish.  Almost no maltiness to it, like the whole beer is made up of undertones.  This is like a magic elixir!

I had a martini before dinner, and a manhattan after.  I love how much range you can get with those basic ingredients just by switching up brands and bitters.  One day I'm going to go to a good bar and order a series of one or the other with minor ingredient tweaks each time.

I finally had some Rittenhouse over the weekend and I must say: reports of its greatness have been slightly exaggerated. I mean it's quite good, but it wasn't like an angel cumming in my mouth or whatever

I'm feeling the same about this bottle of Redbreast I bought for St. Patrick's Day. It just feels light compared to the two scotches I've got right now -- Talisker and Balvenie. I don't dislike it, but I'm not enjoying it nearly as much as I did when I first had it. It kind of tastes like it's already had an ice cube melted in it or something.

Are you drinking it straight?  It makes fantastic cocktails, it's not so much for the neat sipping.

Edit: I accidentally dropped a bottle of Limoncello into my bag when the cashier wasn't looking, and I'd been drinking. What should I make with it?

So I got this bottle of Mastiha-lavored liqueur, and it does indeed taste like Mastiha!  Unfortunately, it's also super-sweet; I feel like I need to figure out a good cocktail to use this stuff in.

Like a pine tree!  I'm currently experimenting with a cocktail I'm tentatively calling The Yiayia:

1 part rosepetal liqueur
1 part mastiha liqueur
2 parts cheap scotch
ice and ginger ale to top it

I'm thinking some citrus -- maybe lemon juice and/or peel -- might be a nice addition.

A small amount of lemon or lime juice is almost always welcome in a ginger ale/beer drink, to maintain acidity.

If it's piney, you might get some ideas here, in the recipes section (at the very bottom).  Zirbenz is quite piney, though less sweet and probably less sharp.

If you see any of this stuff hanging around on a shelf, I'd suggest grabbing it up without a second thought

Tastes like a delicious, sweet & sticky yam, with brown sugar and some other dark fruit flavors. Just intensely, intensely flavorful; absolutely wonderful with a meal. 10% ABV. So, so good. Also my buddy the beer rep gave me a case of those Unibroue glasses and they're super nice. Very heavy, quality glass.

I like this idea of drinking a yam.

the bruery rules. all their beers manage to be interesting and creative, but still drinkable. and their brewery/tasting room is pretty damn cool.

I had the most revolting margarita of my life tonight. The recipe was smelly-shoe tequila, syrup, and triple sec. I sent it back and drank beers until I'd washed out my mouth.

So perfect, that when coffee is brewed poorly (too acidic) the sugar balances it even better.  Dare I say the best Irish coffee you could have would be made with some truck-stop-been-on-the-burner-all-day-sludgy-cup-o-joe.

well that is just flagrantly untrue. He just fell face-first into falsehood!
