timctimc Senior MemberPosts: 6,684 Senior Member
Succumbed to my weakness tonight. Was at the grocery store this afternoon and found egg nog on the shelf. I have a serious weakness for that stuff, had to stop and buy a bottle of rum on the way home.
Mmmmm.... Good!

I sure am glad it's a seasonal beverage!

    Had a martini to start the evening. Beer with dinner. The game (Ohio State) is on later, so more beer, and maybe another martini, or a bloody Mary. The game will include a cigar as well.

    So everyone knows... that tastes like a butter/rum Lifesaver but much better. Eggnog is highly under rated.

    Glenlivet and soda. You're only young once, and I ain't. I intend to enjoy my last few years; if in an alcoholic daze, so be it. Probably not, though. It's way too expensive.

    Chiro, that's what Kiwis call a swappa crate, it's 12 750ml bottles of beer in a wooden crate, you drink them, put your empties back in the crate and next time you go to the liquor store you return the crate and you get a few dollars off of the price of your next crate, plus the bottles are refilled and recycled, most of the the big Brewers offer them, it's cheaper then buying smaller bottles.

    They're kind of a cultural reference point in that young guys and university students will make furniture out of them and there is the inevitable challenge that comes up at some point of trying to drink a whole crate in a night, when I first moved out of home I used painted crates as bedside tables, they are also just an available bottle size at pubs and clubs, really common here, The stereotypical look of a kiwi male would be a black singlet, shorts and a pair of red band gum boots drinking a swappie bottle and smoking a hand rolled cigarette.



    I prefer Dominion Breweries Draught beer

    Not after, but before and during.
    Went and ate Mexican food with my best friend. She had a few Dos Equis and I had a couple of no-salt margaritas on the rocks.

    Despite what some weirdos think.....salt should never go on fruit, or fruit related paraphernalia. Margaritas is limes, and limes is fruits.

    Weirdo.

    Salt in any other fruit, no. Besides tomatoes. Since they are technically a fruit.


    I'll give you that one.

    You're missing out on one of the best ways to eat pineapple there is, mixing chilli flakes with salt and dunking pineapple pieces into it, it is delicious, seriously, you should try it.

    Are you insane? Salt on watermelon and cantaloupe.

    Never. Nor on apples, which seems to be a favorite here in the south.

    I'm mostly not interested in anything but coffee, after a really satisfying meal. But I do enjoy sipping very good whiskey and smoking a cigar, a little later in the evening. My choice is single malt scotch (usually Glenfiddich or Glenlivet). I don't do it often, because it's expensive, and I don't dilute it in any way, because if it went down too easy, I'd probably want it every night. I just drink it on those evenings when I'm already happy and optimistic, for no particular reason. It's starting to be the time of year when I feel that way, more often.

    Ah yes, we used to be able to have returnable beer bottles here, only 12 oz bottles though, they were also useful for creating furniture and such, I think I have a case of Point Beer returnables somewhere in my garage. Anybody have some success draining 12 750ml bottles in one session? We never got up to that volume of beer, even on the Iron Range.

    Yeah, personally quite a few times when I was younger and significantly dumber, and every now and then when I catch up with old friends, I don't ever start out intending to drink a whole crate, but sometimes it happens
    it can get a bit messy, depending on your timeframe, but if you figure that your average barbecue starts at four or five in the afternoon and goes to midnight or later it seems a little less ridiculous, only about 28 standard drinks to a crate so it's less then drinking a bottle of rum in a night, most guys can hold themselves together in that timeframe I'd say.

    I'm not encouraging or saying its a good idea, just giving the facts, in fact, it's pretty dumb.

    Salted melons are a little piece of heaven. Anyone who says otherwise is certifiable and should have their shooting privileges revoked.
