пятница

I've become enamored with old school cocktails.  Like I'll come home and make myself an Old Fashioned before dinner.  Then maybe after dinner I'll have a digestif.  Like a Fernet Branca or Grand Marnier.  Like where has a solid Manhattan been all my life.  Or a Gimlet.  I've been burying my liver with beer and jack and cokes, rum and cokes all this time while hand crafted time proven good spirits fine recipes have been there all along.  I'm a sophisticant now.


Enjoy the finer things in life boys could be over tomorrow.


Remember when I said I'm not scared of anything.  Or afraid of dying.  Whatever I said.  Well I'm shit scared of my house blowing up from ancient gas pipes.  Just about every neighborhood in NYC has been around for 100 years.  My house was built in 1941.  Gas pipes being old and shit, sewage, the subway is old, electrics are old.  NYC is old.  A disadvantage to some, a historic treasure to others.


Klondike bars are extremely underrated.  Solid thin crunch of chocolate over good vanilla ice cream.  I mean you couldn't fuck that up if you tried.  Just a solid frozen treat to enjoy in the house.  Cheap too.  And neatly wrapped in some cheap aluminum based paper product of some sort.


Easter candy is amazing.  Reminds me of the paradox of things we should eat all year round not just holidays or special occasions.  Like corned beef.  I know keef corned beef is gross.  God you are the worst.  Anyway corned beef is delicious and I will eat it more than just on st. pattys day.  Easter candy is incredible.  I will eat jelly beans all year round and buy those marshmallow egg carton things and freeze them.  Also don't forget the GOAT of easter candy.  NERDS JELLY BEANS.

ashamed to say I do not know what an Old Fashioned is.

not ashamed to say I don't know what a Fernet Branca is, but it does sound like a good substitute for ::blank stare::

Gimlet?

"Klondike bars are extremely underrated. Solid thin crunch of chocolate over good vanilla ice cream."

1) polar bear mascot is awesome. go polar bears!

b) krunch kind is the best kind. oreo and heath are good too. reeses is a disappointment.

3) Klondike oreo sammiches are suite*

re: easter candy


reese's eggs are awesome.

I think starburst jelly beans are > nerd jelly beans.


Brooklon Baby said...

"you lie in NYC? thought you were a Jersey boy?"

tem said...

I can't keep track of where you live or where you work.

Brooklon Baby said...

marschiano cherry
orange wedge for garnish

Gimlet
Vodka or gin
fresh lime juice or sweet lime juice
stirred with ice (unless requested straight)

key is muddling the lime, lime bits are welcome

H said...

Brooklon Baby said...

simple syrup...no idea what this is.


sugar water

bitters

bunch of aromatics boiled up smashed up and made into a low grade alcohol that gives off a bitter flavor, balances suite drink recipes

Brooklon Baby said...

"You can get corned beef year round"

Brooklon Baby said...

temducation today

Brooklon Baby said...

rock glass

when you order w scotch or whiskey the small glass they serve it in

Brooklon Baby said...

fernet branca is an acquired taste, if you like bitter flavor it's after dinner drink, proven to help people digest, especially in the old country

it's basically bitters but in a big ass bottle

tem said...

"bunch of aromatics boiled up smashed up"


aromatics = flowers?

Brooklon Baby said...

perhaps, hibiscus flowers, tree bark, spices, pods, herbal shit ya no like ancient chinese medicine herbs crushed up and fermented

The Meiz said...

I'm shocked LP knows what an old fashion is. That's a big Wisconsin thing.

tem said...

he is a sophisticant now meiz.

The Meiz said...

I was watching some Boston based "reality" show last night. The broads on that shit make H make so much more sense now.

The Meiz said...

Gimlets. We've been over this before. Gimlets are the shit.

The Meiz said...

"ashamed to say I do not know what an Old Fashioned is."

You kind of should be, as a midwesterner.

The Meiz said...

I have still never seen Nerds jelly beans. Nerds are my favorite candy, and I want them, goddammit.

The Meiz said...

Mailing it in again today.

tem said...

"You kind of should be, as a midwesterner."

tem said...

The Meiz said...

Also, corned beef is awful.

Blue said...

pastrami

Blue said...

is better

Brooklon Baby said...

"I'm shocked LP knows what an old fashion is. That's a big Wisconsin thing."


been over this before

im an old soul

also the history of this recipe originates to kentucky and was made popular here in nyc, as were many drink, just because of the population growth and how fancy nyc was compared to other cities in the roaring 20's

anyway i believe in midwest and what you referring to is true but i think they choose to use brandy instead of whiskey

which i can dig on asswell*

i'm obsessed with cocktails

Brooklon Baby said...

oh i see you just mentioned that as well

so that's a variation, originated in kentcuky with kentucky bourbon

The Meiz said...

Pastrami sucks, too.

H said...

"Just about every neighborhood in NYC has been around for 100 years. My house was built in 1941.

Maybe he's dyslexic

The Meiz said...

"OOC, how so?"

The way you speak, your mannerisms, and caring too much about inconsequential shit.

Keef said...

caring too much about inconsequential shit.

How long is it gonna take for the holes in my gums to close up?

The Meiz said...

Pardon?

Keef said...

PROUDLY

Keef said...

Today is Pi Day, apparently. Whatever that means

Keef said...

The Cincinnati Bengals signed coach Marvin Lewis to a one-year contract extension Friday.

His previous contract, renewed after the 2010 season, was set to expire after 2014.




fuuuuuuuuuuuccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkk

Brooklon Baby said...

relax just couldnt have him on this year as lame duck

Keef said...

because?

H said...

"Pardon?"

From my wisdom teeth coming out

H said...

"Today is Pi Day, apparently. Whatever that means"

Seriously?

H said...

are you saying that you don't know why it's pi day?

Brooklon Baby said...

because?

because no team operates that way, it's the norm to extend coaches a year so said coach doesnt have to deal with distractions about his status for next year

Keef said...

it's the norm to extend coaches a year so said coach doesnt have to deal with distractions about his status for next year



Yeah, all those distractions might get in the way of all of their playoff wins

Keef said...

are you saying that you don't know why it's pi day?



Ah, 3/14. Didn't put 1.57 and 1.57 together.

tem said...

"Today is Pi Day, apparently. Whatever that means"

tem said...

"How long is it gonna take for the holes in my gums to close up?"

according to the google machine it depends on how much dick sucking you do.

sometimes I don't think google is the best thing to use for knowledge searching.

Keef said...

stop it. you know what it means.

Keef said...
