May 30, 2009


Is officially here. I don't care what the calendar says.


Feel free to replace the Dickel with any kind of bourbon (Evan Williams, perhaps) or some rum (Pusser's is a good one, was good enough for the British Navy!).  Use half a lime and a bunch of ice in a large cocktail glass.  It's kinda like a Moscow Mule, but I don't do vodka.  And with the rum it is kinda like a Dark and Stormy, but I don't really like Gosling's Black Seal Rum all that much.  So we call it the Ring-a-Ding, for some reason.

Repeat as necessary.  Enjoy! 

Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women.

How is Dickel? I've seen it but I've never had it.

Heff said...

Looks great, and refreshing.

Zibbs - It's great. And everyone else drinks JD, so I like to make this my Tennessee whiskey of choice. Not much of a choice actually. Dickel and Jack are the only two Tennessee whiskeys on the market.

Heff - It is very refreshing.

Savannah - I dig me some small batch for sippin', but when I'm mixin' I go with the big boys.

Some day we will drink together.

Verdant Earl said...

Uncool - we will definitely make that happen one of these days.

I had a vodka shot on saturday!! Well more like 3 oz!

Verdant Earl said...

Michelle - I don't get vodka or vodka shots. I like my booze to taste like something other than alcohol. Blech.

Can I replace the bourbon with a vodka or gin? Dark alcohols don't mix well with me anymore.
