Favorite #1: Irish Coffee.
I only like this using Bushmill’s Irish Whiskey. I’ve found the quality of other brands of whiskey to pale in comparison to Bushmills. Bushmills has this remarkably smooth taste to it, and it doesn’t feel harsh going down. What’s more it’s like the thinking mans whiskey, where you can drink a lot of it but it seems the more of it I drink, the smarter I become. Can you believe that? It’s unusual but true. I don’t get sluggish as with other alchohol. The whiskey itself combined with choice coffee (accelerant with depressant - but this whiskey isn’t really depressing) is like a mellowed high. You get this energy rush from the coffee but at the same time you are calm.
Ingredients: Coffee mug of choice coffee filled 3/4, fill rest with whiskey. Stir. Place heaps of whipped cream on top.
Favorite #2: Guinness. Only the black cans (USA) or on tap (UK)
Not really a mixed drink, just beer… But man, so tasty… I really miss the warm, on tap version in London as I haven’t had it in a long time… The US version (import, in cans) doesn’t quite taste the same. Not only do you have to serve it cold, but it’s not as deep and rich as the UK version either… Still, cold or not, beats any other beer hands down. I love the dark taste and the creamy foam as you start the beer. It makes me almost sad when I get to the bottom of a glass of guinness, unless of course I have a lot more in the fridge! Anyways, another thinking mans alchohol. As with Irish Whiskey I find that this beer removes a lot of inhibitions, but doesn’t make my thinking sluggish or impaired. I find myself with a lot of great creative ideas after drinking several pints that I may not have thought about before.
