I like this site: www.thebar.com a lot, they have a lot of drink recipes, some rare ones too, and the materials they suggest are top-notch. Plus, there's a virtual bartender that demonstrates pouring. Whaddaya think?

Open bottle of your choice

Pour.

Drink.

Continue until sated or you fall over...

Problem solved...

Splitpeasoup, please forgive my over suspicious nature, but do you have any connection with Diageo, the drinks company that this site promotes, the people who created the site, or indeed the other poster who spammed this site here very recently?

If there is a connection, it would surprise me. Spammers generally don't bother spending a year posting intermittently to a forum before they start spamming.

I'd say SplitPeaSoup is probably kosher

Unless you make it with ham. Then not so much

You may be right Steen, and if so I hope the soup will forgive me, but my main suspicions arose from the way he talks up both the site, and the products it is there to advertise, when IMHO both are expensively produced and glitzy looking but underneath nothing very remarkable. The site is just there to puff the brands, and is not very upfront about it, the sort of fundamentally dishonest exercise that gives advertising a poor name.

I am probably biased, as I hate all that consumerist labels and brands bollocks. I believe that most of the time the best stuff is that made by small independent producers with a real passion for what they do, rather than the expensively advertised products of multinational corporations. I will however admit that my daughter attended a blind tasting of various gins at the swanky hotel where she has a part time job, and the premium Tanqueray gin, a Diageo brand, easily came out top, (but it is also very expensive).

I'm not into the whole 'drinking' thing I hear people like to do these days, but I do love Tiki Bar TV. Check it out for a laugh (episode 9 is the second to funniest thing I've seen on the internet). I think. And everyone likes Lala, because she's pretty.

What a bland, self serving corporate web site! The pitch Guiness and Baily's, but don't list one of the most effective blendings of them.

Irish Car Bomb
1/2 pint Guiness
1 shot Baily's
1 shot Jameson

Guess what Fluff? They don't own any Irish whiskeys, let alone Jamesons. I don't think it is fair to call the web site bland, as it is quite unusual, but apart from being as phony as a 3 dollar bill, it's trying too hard to be hip in a rather sub James Bond way, and ends up just embarrassing like dads at the disco. It would be better if they used an actual cocktail barman, rather than an actor, but perhaps a real barman would not want to restrict his choice of "top notch materials" to the products of just one company.

I love your link Maximile. [thumbsup]

Wow, we do 'em with the whole pint at my bar. You pour the pint, let it settle, take a sip, drop in the shots, and down it before the cream curdles.

My favorites, outside of straight whiskey, are:

The Screaming Nazi
1 part Jaegermeister
1 part Rumpleminze

Mix in a shot glass, light it on fire. Blow it out and down in one gulp.

The Red-Headed Slut
1 part peach schnapps
1 part Jaegermeister
cranberry juice to taste

Great in a martini glass.

(I'm a girl who loves her Jaeger, what can I say?)

Your recipe for an Irish car bomb reminds me of the recipe for a cement mixer, but it's been years since I earned my cert, so I forget it. Someone care to remind me? And if you know what's in it, have you ever had one? Is it as disgusting as it sounds? (The chunks spook me.)

Ah, you all have it wrong...

1.) 8 tea spoons Swiss miss or other choclate milk mixing powder
2.) couple of cups of water
3.) a dash of milk
4.) Two large sqeezes of the finesest liquid choclate syrup you can find
5.) put into the Hot Choclate machine and turn it on....
6.) It'll stop when it reaches the proper tempature and mix... When it does, press the froth button, and dispense into large mug.
7.) Add marshmellow and/or whipping cream and top with a drizzle of dark choclate, optionally finish it off with a candy cane.

Thank you for the vote of confidence. And the funny joke that as a Jew I appreciate. I have no ham in me. [Smile]

No, I'm not pushing www.thebar.com, but I also don't think it's a hollow site. I found out about it on another board and have been using it for a few months, I think the drink recipes on there are unique and useful, and I'm no good at following written directions so the demonstrations are also good.

In regards to promotion, I think that people who promote websites for a living usually try to do so in a way that is sneaky and crafty, rather than just posting a link for people to enjoy. It bothers me that it's getting harder and harder to share links that I enjoy with people, as online marketing increases and so do people's cynicism.

That said, thanks for the drink recipes, I am all about them. Tonight I will be drinking a red-headed slut.

The Liquid Cocaine:
1 shot rumpleminze
1 shot bacardi 151
1 shot jaegermeister

the jaeger coats the throat, the 151 goes straight down, and the 'minze lends a nice minty aftertaste. but remember, it's 5 shots worth of alky in a 3 oz. glass. sheer death. if you're good and you get a nice temperature differential, you can get it to layer...

alternately, sub 151 for goldschlager... makes it a mite pansy, though.

GM, you forgot to add the shot of rum.
Very nice on a cold winter night.

I have had it this way before...
1/2 oz Bacardi® 151 rum
1/2 oz Goldschlager® cinnamon schnapps
1/2 oz Jagermeister® herbal liqueur

I love this drink. No one should be surprised. [crazy]

Here's my drink (since you brought up Jaeger):

1 shot Jaegermeister
1 shot dark spiced rum
few drops Tabasco

But, I don't have a name for it. So, I decided to have a contest. If anyone's heard of this drink before let me know, if not feel free to make a suggestion. If I choose yours you will get credit for naming the drink, and I'll finally have something to call it [Wink] .

................................................................................
Preparation
• Add tomatoes, orange juice, lime juice, white onion, green chile, sugar, and hot pepper sauce in a blender
• Blend until smooth and pour enough to fill a tequila shot glass

What about a nice spinach salad with slices of pear or tangerine? What about spicy lentil dal over barley rice with chunks of dates in it? Fruit and veggies totally go together. Sounds like someone has never eaten gourmet food.

Though, I agree that Sangrita drink is something I only could drink under specific circumstances. I dunno, though, I drank a bloody mary the other day, almost the same, thebar.com calls it a "Bloody 7":

Ingredients
• 1.5 oz. whiskey
• 3 oz. tomato juice
• 2 dashes hot sauce
• 1 dash salt
• 1 dash pepper
• 1 wedge lime
• 1 stick celery
................................................................................
Preparation
• Add whiskey, tomato juice, and hot sauce to a highball glass with ice
• Add celery stick, salt, and pepper to taste
• Garnish with lime wedge
