Alcohol has been around far longer than when our ancestors even thought about walking upright. Alcohol goes so far back that we have genes that specifically deal with it. I understand my friends here that do not drink and I applaude those who are fighting alcoholism. Myself, I'd like a gin and tonic heavy, with a twist of lime. :twisted:

Barbara, not to mention how stupid one gets when drunk. I've seen some pretty mean drunks in my time. A social drink now and then is fine, I enjoy a Lava Flow (virgin) from time to time (a real girlie drink). My DH likes his Bud or Corola/lime.......Linaka

Here's the recipe:

1 oz light rum
1 oz coconut cream
1 oz Malibu rum
2 oz slightly blended strawberries
1 banana
2 oz pineapple juice
Blend banana,coconut cream and pinapple juice in blender and set aside. In bottom of a hurricane glass, stir together both rums and strawberries. Pour banana/coconut/pinapple mix slowly into glass. The strawberry/rum mix should creep up the glass (hence lava flow).

That sounds awesome. I do not drink much these days, did that earlier lol. But, if I am in a bar which is rare, I like to stump the bartender by asking for a Pousse-Cafe. This is a layered drink, like up to 7-8 layers but can be done with 3 or so layers. Here are some recipes:
http://cocktails.about.com/library/weekly/aa023100a.htm
I like the traditional Pousse Cafe the best and it is the trickiest to make:
ounce Grenadine
ounce Yellow Chartreuse
ounce Créme de Cassis
ounce White Creme de Cacao
ounce Green Chartreuse
ounce Brandy
Layer in a pousse cafe glass or a pony glass. All layers must remain separate. Here is a pic of a correctly layered Pousse Cafe, not sure which kind but has lots of nice layers:


PS - Don't drink alot of these, while very tasty the one above contains like 3-6 OZ of alcohol (depends on the ingredients) and is presented in a fairly small glass so be careful and get a driver lol.

I generally stay away from the fancy stuff though I admit to a weakness for Pina Coladas - don't think I've had one since about 1974.

Give me a well made Vodka Tonic or good Whiskey. I'm a sipper.

Although I've probably tried almost everything from the bottom shelf to the top shelf over the years, my drink of choice (an acquired taste for an old palate) is Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry. No substitutions from New York State or elsewhere, please!!!
However, I keep getting e-mails from the bar manager at my last place of employment; because I left and there was 1.6=750ml bottles left when I moved. This is not a high volume seller and he has to inventory it every month. To this point, it has not been sold and has not evaporated (good cork) May have to make an emergency trip back to help him out
