What Do You Order at the Bar?
Jan 8th, 2024 at 11:49am
 
   Back in my drinking days I might order anything.  If I had a signature drink it would probably be JD on the rocks.
    What are you having?

Usually just a beer.  But with variety.  I'm one of those guys who will usually get a different beer (kind, type, style, whatever) every time I'm ordering.  If I'm getting a shot, Scotch as a sipper.

I'm the real ale man.
In the UK the pub scene has now split into a few sectors.
I focus on what are known as micropubs.
In each town of say, 100,000 people there are usually 3or 4 of them.
Typically they are smaller scale, seating around 20 customers and though many have a full bar offering most focus their offer around a good range of (typically 5 or 6) real cask ales.
Conversation is actually encouraged and jukeboxes , piped music and games machines are rarities.
Old men's places .... not really, because of the laid back vibe most have a strong female/young clientele.
I like dark beer and would rather have one pint of strong, flavoursome and malty, not hoppy, beer than 3 pints of bland, over hopped yellow stuff.
😁👍

Im not famaliar with those. But a well made dirty martini will leave you nearly speechless. Last time I had one at my favorite seafood bar I was so taken aback by the quality all I could tell my waiter on leaving was "So long and thanks for all the fish."

Pint of lager.

I do like an ale too, but endured about 6-7 years of extreme hangovers before I realised that ale does not agree with me. Went back to the drink of my late teens and early 20s.

Ahhh thanks Morphy, I see.
Are you in fact a dolphin masquerading as a slinger ?

The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster was invented by Zaphod Beeblebrox, (president of the universe) and a major character in Douglas Adams' novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The effect of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is described as "like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon, wrapped 'round a large gold brick." It has also been described in the novel as "the alcoholic equivalent to a mugging; expensive and bad for the head." Its original, fictional recipe, is as follows:

Recipe
Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol' Janx Spirit.

Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V (Oh, that Santragian seawater! Oh, those Santragian fish!)

Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzine is lost).

Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it, in memory of all those happy Hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia.

Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heavy odours of the dark Qualactin Zones, subtle, sweet, and mystic.

Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian Suns deep into the heart of the drink.

Sprinkle Zamphuor.

Add an olive.
                                                             Drink . . . but . . . very carefully . .
