Just turned 21...Good drinks to order at a bar? - Page 4

post #46 of 72
GEORGE (cont'd): Oh, hello, Nick. Hey, where's Martini?

NICK: You want a martini?

GEORGE: No, no, Martini. Your boss. Where is he?

NICK (impatient): Look, I'm the boss. You want a drink or don't you?

GEORGE: Okay –– all right. Double bourbon, quick, huh?

NICK: Okay.
(to Clarence)
What's yours?

CLARENCE: I was just thinking . . .
(face puckers up with delicious anticipation)
It's been so long since I . . .

NICK (impatient): Look, mister, I'm standing here waiting for you to make up your mind.

CLARENCE (appreciatively): That's a good man. I was just thinking of a flaming rum punch. No, it's not
cold enough for that. Not nearly cold enough . . . Wait a minute . . . wait a minute . . . I got it. Mulled wine, heavy on the cinnamon and light on the cloves.
Off with you, me lad, and be lively!

NICK: Hey, look mister, we serve hard drinks in here for men who want to get drunk fast. And we don't need any characters around to give the joint atmosphere. Is that clear? Or do I have to slip you my left for a convincer?

As he says this, Nick leans over the counter and puts his left fist nearly in Clarence's eye. Clarence is puzzled by this conduct.

CLARENCE (to George): What's he talking about?

GEORGE (soothingly): Nick –– Nick, just give him the same as mine. He's okay.

NICK: Okay.

Order a Manhattan made with either Canadian Club or Maker's Mark. Or get a dirty martini, up.

secondly, my favourite drinks are white russians, glass of scotch, or coke + rum. oh and if you have ever heard of an orgasm, they are good, a shot involving vodka, kahlua and bailey's
LOL, been drinking since I was 14, the novelty of alcohol has lost on me years ago. I do have a bottle of vodka in the fridge but I hardly ever drink it, I think the last time i had some was because my throat was feeling sore.

Anyway, as for drinks. Forget about shots (you can do that at home), get ****tails or some imported beer that you can't get in supermarkets. I would personally get ****tails, get all the ones you see on TV (just to see why they all drink it) and move onto some wacky and wonderful ones. Half the fun is watch the bartender making it I think, then when he pours it out in all the colours is wicked. The best bit is that it doesn't taste of alcohol.

Oh yah, it's also a good idea to steer clear of anything with sugar, like Coke (even those I love Whiskey/Cola, not too many).
I'm almost 28, I think I have practiced drinking enough . FWIW, I always follow the motto I posted, and have never gotten burnt by it yet.

Only hard liquor, and only one type.

Pick your poison at the beginning of the evening and stick with it.

19? You obviously do not live in Alberta or Quebec or one of the Maritimes (I forget which)

hurray for alberta! 18 is legal here, not that it ever stopped me before. Funny because when I go to my usual liquor store they never ID me. With my hair undone I definately look under 25, and its the law to ID under 25. However, the one time I actually went in there without my ID, to buy a bag of ice with my ex for our camping cooler, the manager demanded to see both our ID's. I tried to argue that it was only a $2 bag of ice, I wasn't buying alcohol but she was intent on giving us a hard time and would not sell it to us.

On the whole mixing drinks thing. I'm 40 and I've been out on the town about a squillion times. The only rule is that there are no rules that apply to everyone.

I've mixed combinations and been fine. I've mixed combinations and thrown my guts up. I've had hangovers from everything that I've ever been drunk on.

It's drinking a stack of alcohol that gives you a hangover; search the net for the physiological effects. You can minimise it by drinking water for the last hour when you're out (or alternating drinks with water), have some painkillers before bed and sleep, sleep and more sleep.

Hope the drinking thing work out for you.

in France it is legal to buy wine or beer at the age of 16, in Belgium you can be 14. i spent a lot of time in both countries when i was young .
i recommend developing a taste for beer, a nice cool beer is lovely and doesn't cost nearly as much as a co-cktal. stay away from most commercial lagers though, most of them are not very nice. organic beers are usually always good, the same goes for cider. a lot of the pilsners from eastern Europe are delicious, Ale's from Germanic countries are usually good, same goes for wheat beers. experiment! its allways worth trying something you have not heard of, but stay away from gimmicky stuff.

my 3 favorite hop based beverages to date are; Duval (Germany), Chimay (all types, Belgium) and any pilsner from the Czech-republic.

Good wine is another thing altogether. learn your basics, but dont get in too deep, its another money pit, those pre-disposed to the curse should be very wary.

Oh right! I didn't know that (I'm from the UK). Well that just shows how lethal it is then

To the "beer before liquor" vs "liquor before beer", I guess it's just bull, but I did realize the idea behind it.

Drinking 40% shots gets you buzzed in a while so if you start with shots, it kicks in half an hour later and by the time you feel it, you'll be all good and not drinking much more.

Drinking beers will get you buzzed as you drink because nobody kicks back beers quicker than the effects so having beers first, getting buzzed and then deciding "I'm not too bad, let's take shots" will get you over the edge long before the last of the shots kicks in.

Guess that works for me maybe that logic only makes sense to me and my friends, but who knows, everybody's got their methods of knowing their personal limits.
