    For sipping neat anything from Foursquare is possibly worth a try. Located somewhere between Cubans and Jamaicans like Monymusk and far away from any dentist´s joy like Don Papa, Zacapa...
     
  2. [head explodes] Thanks Turnip! I'll dig through it.

    Straight I'm going with Ron Zacapa. It's all there. Sugar cane, orange hint, vanilla, molasses (slight) and alcohol to carry the aromas. Worth every penny.

    Hi
    Red beer with Zing Zang is great stuff. what's the red powder around the top of the glass? Pity to waste the Modelo on red beer in a way. We usually use nothing better than PBR.

    In north-central West Virginia, and I'm sure other places too, there's a popular drink known as a redeye. Simply a domestic beer (Iron City 1st choice) and tomato juice (Campbell's only choice). One summer while a student at Fairmont State I poured drafts at the M&H Tavern. The redeye was the most popular drink, especially with the locals coming off work in the afternoon.
    The Michelada could be thought of as the Mexican version of the West Virginia redeye, but waaay more spicy. There are numerous recipe's, but all include lime, hot sauce and a glass rimmed with Tajin, a mixture of ground chili peppers and sea salt.
    If in the Mid-Ohio Valley go to El Mariachi Restaurant and ask Mariah to pour for you her very own outstanding Micheleda. You'll not be sorry.

    HI
    I drank a Modelo Tamarindo Michaelada and didn't like it very well, but I go through a quart of Zing Zang Bloody Mary mix with PBRs as my summer drink. Mow the yard, drink a nice German Stein with 2 cheap beers and lots of Zing Zang. The Modelo wasn't gross, but to me a waste of a tasty beer. I'll try the Tajin with it too.
    Thanks

    I think what you ended up with was a Chelada :eek: as opposed to a Michelada. There's a difference. But with the Zing Zang, I'd say yer definitely on the right track. Good luck to you! :)

    Thanks, I ASSUMED that Chelada was just the last part of Michelada, dang and I've never been wrong before. It was the Tamarind that I didn't like with beer. I've had Tamarind drinks that were good. I found a picture of the can, and it was a Chelada Tamarindo.

    OK, looked it up, most of the Mexican restaurants in Okieland serve their beer with salt and lime, but they just say "Salt and lime?".

    Tried some Bulleitt bourbon last night. Followed it with some regular strength Coors.

    The standard bottling? What are your impressions?

    Yes, just the standard. I thought it was really smooth at first sip, with just a mild afterburn. Not overly sweet like some bourbons tend to be.

    A buddy brought me back a bottle of the same 10 year old whisky from his trip to Scotland. At some point I will pop it open. I look forward to that moment. :D

    At the tail end of the night, catching my breath after hosting Thanksgiving, some Jameson, neat.

    Polished off the last of the Wild Turkey 101 I'd bought for the Thanksgiving holidays.
