By putting soft drinks or other garbage in it??
The morals of this country has got so damn low? Hell fire the next thing you know people will be pouring soft drinks in their whiskey.
Okay I'm guilty, I will mix a drink with good bourbon. I will sip blantons or 4 roses neat. I had alcohol poisoning when I was 15 from Jim
Beam and vodka. It's ruined my stomach to it.
GOOD whiskey? No.
Cheap whiskey? Yes. Water, ice, ginger. The good stuff as it is.
Always remember the military "Drunk, rules for getting"
1. Not too often
2. Never on duty
3. With good booze
4. With good companions
Well Kytowboater you look pretty young you have time to repent and heal. As a matter fact you are younger than a a barrel of good Scotch.
Here's my favorite mixed drink:
1. get a shot glass
2. put a shot of whiskey in it
3. sip and enjoy
Yep, and being on a cold mountain with snow snakes bitten thru your Wranglers and the wind bringing tears to your eyes. Then your partner reaches in his parka and offers you a drink of smooth Ky Bourbon. The friendship and good whiskey will warm your soul.
This exactly.....of course I've never been in this situation before. Currently living in Phoenix by way of Orange County, CA, but it sure sounds good. Lol
Well I grew up on Jim Beam in a tall glass with ice and a splash of coke or just enough coke to change the color, it is a thing to please my wife. I do drink Makers Mark on the rocks with a Makers Mark cigar on special occasions.
With ginger ale and a splash of fruit juice.
I generally dislike whiskey and favor bourbon....
Do not try to tell me they're the same or nearly the same.
The only thing I like straight is white corn whiskey. Bourbon gets a little cherry coke.
With good Scotch or Irish, a splash of water will actually bring out the flavor. With cheaper rum, I do like mixing coke with it.
Probably not what most people would call "good whiskey". I have learned, however, that Jack & Diet Coke hit you faster and mix better than Jack & Coke.
I like to put some amaretto in my whiskey to smooth it out. Not into soda though.
Never adulterate hard drinks, specifically my special, Jack Daniels.
I have switched from Jack Daniels to Gentleman Jack. And out of a shot glass or high ball glass. No ice, no mixer. At a picnic or party, I have been known to have a small stainless steel flask.
If yer talking good whiskey: ie.; Woodford reserve, Tullamore Dew or Glenmorangie, just a splash of water to open up the bouquet.
Decent whiskey: ie.; Jim Beam, Jamieson's or Dewar's, a cube or two.
Crown Royal in a Manhatten, light on the sweet vermouth, up with rocks on the side.
Seagram's Seven, make it a hiball!
Finally, let may say, that if you haven't tried Crown Royal Maple Finish, don't, OMG!!!!
Both my kids like that stuff. It's too sweet for my tastes.
Like Winds, I enjoy my Gentleman Jack, just a splash of water and a couple rocks, otherwise I drink too fast. When I'm feeling a bit down (and there are no other Whiskey lovers around), I pull out the Single Barrel Jack just over a couple cubes. I'm a Sour Mash Guy although I can enjoy the Single Grain Irish types also.
Good Scotch, Bourbon, Irish or even a few blends, just a small splash of bottled water to bring out the bouquet.
Any rum, hot black tea.
Good gin, neat Lesser gin, ice and club soda
Vodka, I serve to others, I don't drink it myself.
Brandy (real brandy, not the flavored stuff) can be enjoyed neat, or with a small splash of Cointreau, Benedictine or Amaretto
Tequila, neat, but only when the wind is blowing cold and there's nothing else in camp
