Blackberry Bomber....sure, why not? Itíll definitely mess ya up. Women love it and it only takes a couple to have a profound effect on their equilibrium.

None of those stores up here Ken. My warehouse has a pretty good selection though, and if they don't have something, they stock it for me (they know me quite well)....

Well, definitely try and get some.

Then you can tell me it's not as good as this $30 brand you have...

Well actually Ken, my favorite bourbon is Bookers, and itís about $60 a bottle. Itís the big brother to Knob Creek and Bakers. Kin to Jim Beam. Thereís not that many others I like but Makerís Mark. I had a horrible fight with JD when I was 16 and Iím still wearing the scares from that one. Still canít drink it 25 years laterÖ.. I woke up in the bathtub with my very amused father standing over me at the controls of the cold water two days after my senior party without any recollection of the last two days. I found my precious 81 Trans-am covered with regurgitated ???, missing the T-tops, scratched to hell and out of gas on the middle of a frozen lake a week later. Someone (presumably me) thought he was the Bandit.

I have another drink recipe to share that I made last night. All this foo-foo talk inspired a trip to the liquor store last night. I broke down and picked up a bottle of flavored vodka and must admit that it is quite good. I may have to reconsider my stance on these flavored vodkaís after all. Itís a lot easier to buy them than make them. The bottle is Finlandia Wild Berry vodka.

I think Iíll call it a passion martini.

Two parts wild berry Finlandia
One part Bacardi Passion Fruit rum
One part cranberry
Splash of lime juice
Shake and strain.
Very fruity but yet still stiff like a martini. I suspect some Cointreau or simple syrup might be good for those who want less bite, but I liked it just the way described so I didnít try to sweeten it up any.
I also tried it without the lime and for some odd reason, the lime brought out the berry flavor.

Geez, you know, if they do it right at the distillery, you don't need to put it in juice with an umbrella, you nancies.

Faves as a "sipping shot"... (most often a few ounces by itself in a short tumbler)
-Glayva
-Drambuie
-B&B or Benedictine
-Eblana

My uncle used to say the same thing, except he used the term "panty waists".
Nothing like learning old school.

Mmmmm. Benedictine. I drink it for it's medicinal properties. Cures a sore throat right up. If you pop a glass in the microwave for 10 seconds, it really throws some vapors at you.

Whipped this one up last night. Itís a keeper.

12 oz glass filled with ice
Fill it up 5/8 full with Makers Mark
Add a pour of Medori (about an once)
Top off with sweat / sour mix
Shake to mix and dump it all back in the glass
