Boy, the ice in this glass of Kahlua on the rocks sure feels nice...I was up on
a ladder today just below the roofline, and heard a rumbling sound. Raised my
head up just in time to see my pry bar sliding down at me, and it popped me
in the mouth real good.
I was on the roof, replacing the hundred or so shingles damaged by Hurricane
Charlie in Orlando last summer and SWMBO was my ground support... I heard
that same rumbling sound, shouted to the boss to get away and the pry bar
stuck into the ground in the area she had just fled from.
The only cold one I had that evening didn't come in a glass...
Wow - that's a b*tch - hope your teeth are ok - all else will heal.
If the Kahlua "high" wears off, try Amaretto, Anisette, Gin, CC, Jack
Daniels, Absolute and then Grain Alcohol (NO ICE & in this exact
Not that I have any experience with this stuff.
Seriously, get well & best wishes.
Maybe getting bopped in the head
affected my vocabulary, a doubly
embarassing mistake since my

tried "The Famous Grouse?" It
was enjoyable at the Highland Games,
but I don't know if it was the Scotch
or the ambiance of the games.

I was given a bottle of B*ll's a while back. It's sitting in the
kitchen now, stuffed full of blackberries. I've never tried this
before, but I plan to try it an Christmas. I'm hardly going to drink
B*ll's otherwise, and if I've ruined it, then it was no great loss.
Please explain a bit more, mee boyo. I have not heard of stuffing
a bottle of scotch whiskey with blackberries. Is this supposed to
be a delicacy? Which would be the delicacy, the scotch or the

You take berries, and pour whisky over to cover. I just dropped
berries into the bottle and fed the spillage to the cat. Sugar to
taste (I haven't yet) and leave for 3 months.
Supposedly you drink the whisky, but you can still eat the
blackberries with ice cream. They appear to have turned a fish-like
pale pink though (and the Scotch is the colour of port), so I'm not
sure they'll look too good bare.
I will consult with our local and see if they have, or can get it.
I need to pick out a bottle of single-malt in the $80 range as a
reward for, well, something that's happening in January. I'm leaning
towards the Balvenie 21-year Port-wood casked, any thoughts?
But, like boiling bratwurst in beer, it's not an excuse to use bad
beer. They go well in Guinness, but I'm sure it makes (some of) my
ancestors weep to do so. Probably the best thing to do with something
like that, aside from soaking a fruitcake in it.
Er, if it's not from Scotland, it's not Scotch. _or_ scotch.
I suppose, if you don't like complicated (read: interesting) flavors.
I've tried some in the 10-12 dollar pour range, and haven't been
impressed. But, I'll give it another shot (heh) if you can suggest
a particularly good one in that price range.

It depends. My favourite is old Macallans. I don't drink the stuff,
just sniff at it.
For what I actually pour in a glass and drink, it's usually Jamesons.
Sometimes I just want to drink it, not analyse it.
