Is this worthwhile? I have to admit I'm curious. The Vodka & Tonic is one of the most perfect things in existence and if you can improve upon it kudos to you sir.


YES. AMAZING. It's made with real quinine and organic agave instead of HFC and artificial flavors (NO HANGOVER). It's like getting drunk on a secret mountain stream of love. It's also a product of a small(ish) company in Brooklyn and the baby of one mans quest for the perfect vodka tonic. It is kinda pricey and has turned me into a vodka tonic snob but a worthwhile splurge if yr askin me.

Thanks for hooking me up, I may have to subscribe.

I'm headed to Missoula, MT. for the next two weeks and can likely be reached anytime of day at a bar, possibly my favorite on the planet, called the Rhinoceros; fifty taps of North Western deliciousness.

when i was in columbus at xmas time, Palmer's on Indianola had a good selection as always, and I was happy to see Pace High stocking lots of good stuff again. if you're on the far north end, there's a place on Polaris Parkway a little east of 71, south side of the street, next to the BW-3, that had a good selection as well. oh, and Weilands on Indianola's was not bad.

I've been drinking a lot of the new (old) Schlitz beer (available at Weilands and Giant Beagle in Clintonville). I'm really digging it for a working-class American beer (although it's a bit pricey for that realm at $5.99 a six).

Oh and Knob Creek. It's bourbon weather.

Sierra Nevada, Torpedo (Extra IPA)

Nice piney California style, clear amber color, well balanced, similar to this past year's anniversary ale, I may have a new love.

it turns out there's already a beer drink called the Cincinnati:

Quote:
Cincinnati
In the mid-western USA, a Cincinnati is a 33%/66% concoction of 1/3 lemon-lime soda (i.e. Sprite or 7 Up) and 2/3 lager or pilsner beer.

which, going further, it turns out is really just a Shandy or Shandygaff.

and then there's this:
Quote:
Other names for shandy

Austria: An Almradler is made with a 60/40 mix of popular Austrian Almdudler soda (a traditional Alpine herb drink that tastes a bit like a ginger ale) and pils or lager beer. A 50/50 blend is marketed by Puntigamer in bottles and cans. It is also popular in Bavarian Germany.

Flanders: Kivela (Estonian > “land of stone”) A mixture of German lemonade and lager.

Spavola (Italian > "bubbling water") a mixture of sparkling mineral water and lager.

Mazout is a mixture of cola and lager.

Wallonia: Diabolo (“devil”), a lager mixed with mint or grenadine.

Brussels: Tango, dark beer with grenadine.

Bahamas: "Shanti/Shanty" (as in shanty town where the ragamuffins live): this term is commonly used by certain people

Chile: Fan-schop, a mixture of beer with Fanta orange soda.

Colombia: Refajo, a mixture of lager beer with red cola-style soda like Kola Roman or
Colombiana.

France: A Monaco is a Panaché with Grenadine added.

Japan: Shandygaff, a mixture of beer and cola.

Portugal: Called either a Panache or a Shandy, it is a drink popularized by the tourists who brought the drink here. It is made with draft beer mixed with carbonated lemonade or a lemon-flavoured soft drink (often 7 Up or Sprite).

Switzerland: Called either a Panaché [Swiss French] or Panasch [Swiss German].

Spain: Called a Clara or Clara con Limón if it’s made with sweet carbonated lemon soda (Clara Spanish > “Clear Lemonade”). When made with carbonated soda-water, whether it is lemon-flavored or not, it is called Clara Limón gaseosa ("Lemon Soda"). In some other parts of Spain, a mixture of beer and sweet lemon-lime soda is called a Champu.


so, i had a heineken on ice the other nite..it was delicious..maybe we'll call it the Nelson.

That's where I had my first one, and it was awesome, and awesomely expensive.

Though this label says 8.3% alcohol, the one's I bought from spread eagle were 10.3% alcohol, and they were decent. I still prefer the Dogfish 90.
