What Ya Drinking?

Hard Stuff:
One word Jameson, anytime of the day.

Beer:
In August I fell in love with the Rogue Morimoto Soba Ale . This stuff is amazing. I bought all 6 22oz. bottle at the Pasadena BevMo and they have yet to restock. This past weekend I tried a great Craftsman beer at The York in Highland Park. I forget the name but it started with an E. I would say it was a Porter maybe. Strong flavors of coffee with a little chocolate and maybe a hint of caramel in the finish. I know sounds pretentious but the beer was pretty orgasmic.

Wine:
While not technically a wine Trader Joes has this Zinfandel Port that is out of this world. I could drink it by the gallon.

Veggie+fruit smoothies. Ask Ronjon. Or M.E.

I know it's heresy, but cycling has seriously curtailed my alcohol consumption.

I thought that might come back at me. You know I don't have any handy to tell you. It is in a little bottle with a short of hour glass figure (starting to sound good I know). I think it is from Paso Robles. I'm not sure it is sold at every TJs. I asked the guy last time where the Zin Port was and he found it for me.

It is a total blend of the two. It's like a really big Zin and a less syrupy Port. I could go on and on about it...the legs...the nose. It's not for everyone but if you like Port you should give it a try.

Oh the label look like some hippie Dead t-shirt design IMO.

I'd go with always good.

Bought some mint leaves yesterday -- chucked a bunch in the pot with steeping green tea. Really good.

+1 on the Rogue. Karl Strauss Downtown After Dark is good too. A couple of other faves are Fat Tire Amber Ale and Stella Artois. I'm good off the hard liquor unless its PATRON TIMEEEEE!!

CVS Mint Eucalypatus Mouthwash - amazing minty flavor that isn't too overpowering yet lingers on the tongue for awhile




Okay, so I did spit it out, but I just wanted to be part of the thread and that's all I had handy.
