Genuine Absinthe I'm a huge fan of the thujone, and luckily I have a steady stream of friends and family traveling through Europe that are kind enough to keep me in the good stuff. I'm planning an Absinthe video post soon - keep a look-out for it.
Chartreuse & Tonic
It might sound like a girly-drink, but this is a serious cocktail.
Don't believe me? Just grab a Ouija board and ask Hunter S. Thompson - This was one of his favorites (and he seemed like a pretty "together" guy).
Thai Red Bull & Mongolian Vodka
I use the original Krating Daeng energy drink (which was later tamed for western pallets and re-named 'Red Bull') along with Chinggis vodka and a slice of ginger for this dangerous libation. Thai Red Bull is essentially Red Bull syrup, and the Mongolian vodka kicks in with the ginger for a unique eastern western style cocktail.
I alternately call this mix "Celestial RB&V" and "Liquid Crime".
Knob Creek Old Fashioneds
The name says it all. One of the best drinks from the get-go with a spicy bourbon upgrade.
The reason that the cherry is green in this picture is that I bought green maraschino cherries (for some unknown point-of-purchase reason).
New Glarus 'Totally Naked' Lager
My new favorite summer beer.
