There'a always time to make more money. But we might run out of rum! Best to drink it now.

Hey Forrest,.... sorry, I guess I haven't really been paying attention. But I'm guilty with an excuse. I have been saddled with Attention Deficit Disorder most of my life and I get distracted easily by shiny objects, hot women and the like. But I guess Rum for breakfast sort of strikes me as....Hey look!,... a Chicken!

Well I just finished my Appleton Estate Reserve bottle which I hate as is but love when mixed as a RUM and Coke. Will I buy another bottle for the Rum and Coke? frankly I don't know. It's stuch a refreshing taste over other rums I've tried mixed with Cola.

It's on special with 3$ off right now and considering buying another bottle only for it's great taste as RUM and Coke mix but as a $26.85 mixer.. I don't know.. we'll see.. as I also like the Rye and Coke

Try the Appleton Vx in this modified version of the Cosmopolitan:

The Traveller

(You can use red Cranberry juice instead of white).

The cocktail is awesome and you will find yet another great way to drink Appleton VX.

Well I've never had a Cosmopolitain, the only fancy cocktails I had were a Margarita, Martini (Gin) and a Black Russian.

I never heard of Cointreau, but then that's not surprising with my "very vast cocktail" experiences but I'll keep that Traveller's recipie in mind if I ever happen to buy white Cranberrie juice lol thanks Arctic.

I went to the LCBO (Ontario's liquor store) today and picked up Vodka a la Bruce Willis "Sobieski" and will compare with my Russian Stantard sometime.

Also saw the Flor de Cana 5 which I haven't found much reviews on but I'm going to wait till I go to the province of Quebec and pick up the 7years and or maybe just the 12yrs.

The Russian Standard is an exceptionally smooth and clean Vodka. I just wish it had a little flavour to tease my palate and to give it some character.

Tonight I'll be trying the Regalia Vodka at a friend's house,as we celebrate his birthday. I plan to bring a bottle of Pusser's Blue Label Rum as well as we will probably be toasting the holidays as well.

We will be making Cosmos, so mabe I will try my Traveller recipe with Pusser's tonight!

Sobieski vodka is excellent, as vodka goes. By which I mean, it tastes as good as any decent vodka and doesn't cost a fortune.

I concur djmont. I don't use Vodka all that much, but the Sobieski holds it's own against a bunch of costlier alternatives I compared it to. It's a great value and has excellent flavor IMHO.

Talking

While watching the Montreal/Tampa Bay game I was thinking.. hey my cold is almost gone, now I can drink something so I was thinking of what to drink.

1oz. Maker's Mark (cause I want to finish it but bottle is half full)
1.5z. Malibu Coconut Original

The bourbon is just too strong and doesn't taste good to me so I added

0.5oz. Gekkeinkan Sake
1oz. Cold North Bay Water
1oz. Cheap Cola

And let me tell ya.. it's awfull!

No no it's not so bad, but I don't recommend it
