    Today at the liquor store I saw some bottle with Arabic script on it and it said made with grapes and aniseed... Now I'm a big fan of absinthe and that is also flavored with aniseed so I grabbed it. It's called Arak and you cut it with water and it turns white, like some absinthes do. The taste is very similar to sweeter absinthes that don't have much bitter wormwood taste, but it's not overly sweet look like Absente brand. It is sweet, but in the way that wine or brandy is "grape sweet" if that makes sense. Anyhow I'm really enjoying it and happy to have found it since most liquor stores in my neighborhood don't have any absinthe, and even when I do find it here in USA it's always that Absente brand which isn't bad but I prefer absinthe that isn't so sweet and also you cannot taste any bitter wormwood in Absente. However there are several brands of arak on the shelf, so I'm looking forward to trying them!

    My girlfriend dumped me 3 days ago and my grandfather died yesterday, so I'm sipping on a glass of William Grant's, my favorite scotch whiskey, while recording guitar tracks for the stuff I've been writing for months.

    Went out with some friends and decided to try a random beer at the place. Settled for this thing called Franziskaner. Was a little fruity tasting, but surprisingly good. Tasted like a better Blue Moon.

    A friend of mine moved to Germany with his family a couple of months ago, so me and my gf moved into their house. The guy had been making white wine since 2011 - he just likes to make it but not drink it :lol: So he said I could drink it if it's any good.
    My mom also makes wine, and 50% of the time it's drinkable by itself and the rest of the time you need to mix it with Sprite to flush it down :lol: So I didn't have very high expectations...
    Anyways: I finally gave it a go last weekend, and I'll be damned, I could've sworn it was store bought unless it had been in a coke bottle :D It's also completely clear, whereas my moms' wines tend to be a bit cloudy. So now I've got like 20-30 liters of very good wine in the basement :metal:

    oh lordy I was so drunk last night... Paddled 10km home at about 5am with my trusty bicycle. Fell over a few times and now my leg is sore and it looks like I was attacked by a very annoyed and big cat. I don't even remember when I've been THAT drunk that I couldn't stay on the road with my bike. Maybe when I was a teenager.

    I finally got home, woke the baby and wife up by being stealthy as a raging manatee, took my clothes off and crashed into my bed falling asleep instantly.

    When I woke up I had a slight headache and was feeling a bit wobbly walking around, but those went away really quickly when I drank a buttload of juice and there's no hangover left whatsoever.

    I wanna get drunk too :lol: But with our baby on the way (estimated date of birth is two weeks from now, so it could happen any moment now), I just can't, because I need to drive to the hospital when it happens... Once the baby's out, I'll probably be drunk for a month straight or something :lol:

    Jameson tonight. Usually I prefer Johnnie Walker (mixes REAL nicely with cola- Winston Churchill's drink of choice, y'know) but this time around, I decided to save a couple of bucks and get the Irish Whiskey.

    Gets the job done... not sure about the taste though... probably should've gone with the Scotch.

    Ah well, I feel better tonight than I did a week ago when I learned, the hard way, the potency of sake. Decided to crack open a bottle my friend got me when she went to Japan...

    Liquor before Beer- never fear
    Beer before Liquor- never sicker
    Liquor before Sake- christ, what have you done?!

    Cant go wrong with Jame-o or the trusty J-Dub. If you don't like the taste of the Jameson in its own, try mixing it with ginger ale. That makes for a delicious mix.

    I'm always surprised how well JW Red mixes with a splash of coke. JW Green is my favorite of the entire line to drink straight.

    Dear friends of SSO, today I found out that vodka is not something you should drink straight from the bottle. I'm not Finnish enough for those kinds of shenanigans.

    For now, I'm enjoying myself with about 15 of these.

    Damn. Yesterday I got lit.

    warmed up with a shot of whiskey. Then I had 2 irish car bombs. Then a White Russian. Then I washed it down with a badass Scottish ale, which was pretty strong.

    I am pretty skinny, so I impressed myself by not getting sick.
