    Favorite Hard Alcohol?

    Just so we are not exclusive only to beer drinkers, here is a chance for those who enjoy the hard stuff to let your voices be heard.

    My personal preference - bourbon, and maybe whiskey from time to time.

    Can't beat Maker's Mark, although Knob Creek lately has been sneaking into the old cupboard.

    Crown Royal is also a long time fav.

    Favorite type is Scotch.
    My favorite single malt is Lagavulin. I have not had a finer whiskey, but I am open to suggestions. When I want a lighter malt, I like Oban or Glenlivet.

    I'd have to agree with the scotch. Lagavulin is one of my favorites, but so is Craggonmore and Laphroig. Beyond Scotch - I'd have to say Bombay Sapphire gin works pretty well for me.

    Tequila. Cuervo is pretty good, but I've had $10 shots of other brands that were just beautiful. Then I saw friendly, talking coyotes who told me to burn things.

    Cuervo. But you have to add a little tabasco sauce to it. I gave it up years ago. Too many lost memories.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    A Prairie Fire? Ugh! I had one on my 30th birthday. I couldn't even smell tequila for about 6 months afterwards without thinking of that nightmarish shot.

    Re: Favorite Hard Alcohol?

    A long time ago a buddy and me were in a bar in Vincennes, Indians drinking prairie fires. He kinda gagged on one and spit it back in the shot glass. He set it on the bar and looked pretty bad. There was phlegm floating on top of it. I called it later a hocker slammer. An old lady was sitting there and she said "If you don't want it I, I'll drink it!" and slammed it down, hocker and all.


    We left.

    My friends took me out drinking on my 21st birthday to a dive bar in South Carolina.

    When informed of this, the bartender told me I had to start off the night with a shot of "Buffalo Sweat"

    After agreeing for reasons beyond my comprehension, I watched the bartender take out 151 proof rum and fill half a double shot glass with it. then he took the dirty bar rag sitting right in front of me and squeezed the juice out into the shot glass and forced me to down it.

    Yeah - let's say I was phoning some dinosaurs that evening.

    There is a little bar in Nogales, Mexico called Senior Amigos which has Prarie Fire as one of their treats.

    However, theirs is done with a nice twist.

    You put on a helmet first of all, and a bar employee forces the shot down your throat, then takes your head and shakes it violently from right to left and back and forth.

    Then, a friend of yours sitting nearby, will take a rubber mallet that the same employee handed them moments before cramming a shot down your throat, will take that mallet and bash your helmeted head a few times for good measure.

    And yes, people paid good money for this treatment.

    I bet they hope their liability insurance guy doesn't read this.
