    Spent 4 years celebrating Fat Tuesday in New Orleans. Great times were had. Back then it was throw me something mista( as in beads or doubloons). Now i’ve graduated to wanting someone to throw me a gadget!

    Always felt call liquor was for martinis and well for mixed cocktails. Preferred being Russian Standard vodka.

    OK, cool. We are now the Opera and alcohol thread with a dash of GAMMA and audio.

    You nailed it with Russian Standard. Less than $20/litre and blows all premium vodkas out of the water. Tito's isn't bad, an up and comer.

    Alcohol and music go so well together. I'll take Tito's over Russian Standard. RS has that typical Russian (Stoly) after taste burn. Try Russian Platinum which eliminates that. Dollar for dollar I think Tito's is the winner, but the best for me are Van Gogh and Ketel One.

    Just skull about 4 fingers of your favourite gin, then go straight to the methylated spirits............ You'll never know the substitution. well, at least not until you've slept it off........:triportsad::ksc75smile::triportsad::ksc75smile::ksc75smile::ksc75smile::L3000:

    Gin is a Dutch invention.
    Ketel 1 in fact is a really nice Gin.

    Don't know how I missed this.

    Mike, I hope your issue is minor and you recover quickly and completely

    Try Svedka---it is very close to Ketel One at a lower price.

    I really like the reviews of gin much better than opera. It's nice to be in the company of people with good taste in spirits. We'll know we are in trouble when we like them all, all the time.

    Clear alcohols are for rich women on diets.

    Seriously though
    I must be spoiled because I can get some really good local gin where Im at so I generally avoid stuff like Bombay sapphire or Tanqueray. I have not dabbled into any of the Kirkland stuff as of yet.

    I’m in your boat re having a good, local gin, though I usually have a few choices on hand, including some of the usual big names.

    I probably shouldn't post this but here is an exclusive look at a critical drawing for the Gadget.

    You are a bad, bad man!

    I like Gin martinis up when out to dinner, 2 are my limit, a 3rd martini is like ordering a bowl of "loud mouth soup"!
    But variety is the spice of life, in opera as well as alcohol.
    At home I prefer Vodka's, Bourbon's, or my 21 year single malt Bushmills on the rocks, or sans rocks, in a crystal, low ball, glass.
    And, pass the Beluga. Please!

    A quality single malt should never touch an ice cube! Some water is just fine but no ice!!!!

    Hey gurl, still working on the rich part—

    How about some Offenbach?

    And some Parsifal?
