Some drink

Post by Rod Rammage @ Tue Dec 20, 2016 10:54 am

Just been given a bottle of advocaat.

Never drunk advocaat before.

Don't know what to make of it

What's the procedure?

Use it to make a Snowball.

Pour half a glass of advocaat, add a dash of lime juice then top it up with lemonade.

What's this, another type of snowball?

Anyway I don't like lemonade.

Is advocaat just alcoholic custard?

If so, could I have some poured on my ICELAND MINCE PIES WHAT I'VE GOT DID I MENTION IT?

You might get some ideas from this 1980's Warninks advert.

Mix with vodka and tomato juice
Take one sip
Pull awful face
Tell everyone around you how vile it is and offer free drinks all evening to anyone who can down it in one
Provide free drinks all evening for someone who downs it in one
Take photos of them passed out on the floor of the toilet and show to all your friends.

Absolutely!

This is why I'm embarking on a decidedly non-creamy whisky-based diet.

It goes like this:

Breakfast: whisky & ginger (ginger is cleansing! just what you need to start the day)
Lunch: Whisky & water (need to keep hydrated - otherwise how will you be radiant?)
Dinner: Whisky & ice (maintaining an even temperature is important)

Baileys. Pshaw. That shit is unhealthy!

Your diet sounds tasty but very unhealthy, cj.

What you should do is copy me and have a mixed diet.

I skip breakfast altogether, allow my guts time to "reset" so to speak, as it were. Then a couple of beers at lunch, then wine for dinner and advocaat for supper.

That's at least 6 or 7 of your five a day.

I can't start on whisky. At least not if I went at it properly the night before.

This season, I will be mostly avoiding a breakfast meal and kicking off with a couple of fairly heavy duty bloody marys around 11am. These should contain a good 1/8th of a bottle of vodka so after a pair, you ought to be ever so slightly rattling, but with the illusion that you have 'healthed' yourself better thanks to the Tom juice.

An afternoon stroll and the vodka should be beginning to wear off and you're good to get into an afternoon of casual drinking whilst attending to other matters. I like to call this time 'Dealer's Choice' and will sink whatever is handed me. Glühwein, beers, gin all likely candidates here. Prosecco a regular outside chance too.

Now it's dinner time and I'm ripping into a bottle of good red with my main course after a couple of beers to start. I'll most probably open a second and that will see out dinner as I'll be balancing it against champagne/prosecco.

After the wine is finished, I'll time the opening of the scotch to coincide with the cheese. This will be ruinous and depending on the stamina of the other participants, may see anything from a midnight to 6am finish.

That is my Christmas story.

Do any of you lot have shaky hands in the morning? I used to work with a guy who would shake noticeably in the morning then would have a couple of drinks at lunchtime and would be okay. Also a woman who used to drink at work then hide under her desk where she would go to sleep, but she got sacked.

Obviously I *have* had a shaky hands, after the odd epic session, but not as a dental rule. A drink sorts it, right enough so your man was on the right track.

Nice Christmas story Dis!

Mine is tamer but a little something like this.

7am - first drink. Normally a Buck's Fizz but this year, as my wife now allergic to orange juice, a Chambord Royale or two.

That will see me through to the start of cooking, 11ish when I'll need booze in order to cook properly. I'll open prosecco for the others and will have one but then alternate with beers for a couple of hours.

Dinners ready so I'll open 3 different reds and drink lots of them before settling down after dinner to more red or possibly an ale or two to rehydrate. Give it another hour or so and I'll bring out the cheeseboard with a bottle of port.

Once that's done and it'll be late evening and I'll tear through a few old fashioneds and maybe open more prosecco on the side. Yes it's a bit ragged but it'll do a job.

I had some of these on a dad's night out last night.

I hadn't realised at the time but it's a Guinness brew. Very drinkable. Basically a hoppy lager. Reminds me of Newky Broon.

I'd endorse that regime all the way to the White House.

I've blown my diet today. Went to the pub with the newly crowned father in law and his mates to play something called darts, which is like shooting for poor alcoholics. Different over here of course, without our social context.

Anyway:

1). I drank a steady stream of Jever Pils and Lagavulin 16.

2). I'm actually alright at darts.

3). Croatian garlic sausages are the bomb.

Now drinking a red wine in bed to try and approach something of a glide path back to sobriety as I have to hit a boozy brunch about 10am tomorrow. This has been quite the tough week.

I was instructed to try out a few different wines last night to determine which should served on Sunday... There's 4 open samples and there's 2 empty bottles in the recycling bin and my head hurts like a Motherfcuker. Luckily we've all decided to call it a day at 12:00 so it's off to a local hawker centre that does a rocking good lamb biryani before heading into town to see if we can double down on the 12 pubs of Christmas everyone else is doing.

We normally start with bucks fizz, then after walking the hounds I'll switch to a very nice Tasmanian lager while I wrestle the turkey. More champagne when our guests arrive and then we'll be having either the Chateauneuf de Pape, a very nice Haut Medoc or a Macon Villages. I've got a 2008 Quinta De Vargellas to go with the cheese.

I took Advocaat and lemonade to school a few times in a drink bottle, the only time I was questioned by a teacher I advised it was a banana milkshake.
Ah, the 70's.

1883.

The GF bought a bottle of Baileys for the festives and I tried a small measure because I couldn't remember if I'd had it before or if I liked it. I don't like it.

I have been "banned" from buying any whiskey this year. Needless to say I shall be buying some whiskey.

I would have guessed similar, or the paleozoic era, because whisky is as old as the earth, and so is cream.

But apparently it took mankind until 1974 to invent it.

Come on mankind, sort it out!

In fact I'm calling bullshit on Baileys.

It's like sandwiches, isn't it. I mean to say, bread is the staff of life, and it's been around since caveman times I expect. Surely mankind didn't biff along for millions of years eating bread entirely separately from everything else until 1877 when some toff though of squishing a bit of ham into it.

I reckon cavemen, once they'd got the hang of distilling, probably invented Baileys in ancient "caveman times". Yes they'd have their ancient caveman moonshine and stir in a bit of milk. Hey presto - Baileys.
