post /fa/ cocktails
wow good job starting the thread off wrong
also sazerac is a good drink, but I'd only order it at legit bartending places.
Easy to get everywhere is an amaretto sour, next a Gin Fizz/Tonic.
Martinis, lemon drop included
Oh and st. germain and champagne is refreshing.
I actually like the taste of absinthe, there are some great cocktails with a little of it.
you don't hallucinate from modern day absinthe you idiot, unless you get some authentic (and highly illegal) absinthe made the way it originally was. Also it pairs good as fuck with creamy or savory tastes.
nah, that's all bullshit too. there's no legitimate link between absinthe and hallucinations at all, even ' authentic' or 'proper' or whatever fuckin neckbeard term you wanna use absinthe.
absinthe was, and will always be, a strong anise spirit. nothing more nothing less
also it sucks. why drink that when you could be drinking blantons
and i'm gonna follow this up with blantons.
not the most /fa/ design but by far the most /fa/ bourbon
This is accurate. The scientific papers on the topic are hilarious and end up basically saying "people were just drunk."
Also, yeah, it's overrated.
There's a place up in Baltimore that sells a cocktail called the Blade Runner that is unironically the best fucking thing in the world.
I forget where it is, though, and that pisses me off.
Wormwood alkaloids in an alcoholic solution act as a dissociative deliriant anyways, fyi if you wanna be effay you have to be knowledgeable about neurochemistry and drugs. go to taimapedia, erowid, bluelight, shroomery, and the psychonaut wikia for more info.
for guys in melbs, the cocktails at double happiness are great, it's got bubble tea with pomegranate vodka and one called the 8th route which has caraway, lime, birdseye chili and sichuan pepper
I only drink Old Fashioned these days and if the bartender mentions Don Draper or Mad Men I never return to that bar.
If I'm not at a bar I just take whiskey straight.
All the cool kids seem to like anything with Fernette or Mezcal but both of those things taste like fucking garbage to me.
Because I like it?
The mint takes a lot of the bite out of the whiskey and I make my drinks strong
And it brings out some of the sharpness of the floral tints that the bitters give you imo
Dark and Stormy is a good place to start for rum. It's like a moscow mule with dark rum instead of vodka. I also really like a drink called the Old Cuban. It's a rum and mint cocktail with champagne. You might enjoy that one a lot.
Boulevardier for whiskey. It's like a negroni with whiskey.
So many gin drinks though. Aviation. Ramos Gin Fizz (they're a pain in the ass to make, but they're fucking delicious). French 75. The Martinez if you want something a little heavier.
Honorable mention to the Vesper (a much better James Bond cocktail than a damn vodka martini shaken).
