wtf is sharecroppers? i've never seen that one before

jergins, Wednesday, 25 April 2007 08:33 (twelve years ago) link

and Malibu, I C U HIDING:)

jergins, Wednesday, 25 April 2007 08:33 (twelve years ago) link

silly. that's a picture from last summer... sharecroppers is an interloping bottle of wine. and the whalers is long gone by now. as is the one barrel, sadly. that malibu may still be hiding there in the back.

except that bottle of mt. gay is significantly emptier now.

lxy, Thursday, 26 April 2007 07:45 (twelve years ago) link

lol at the light cruzan. was david over again?

what's the one on the left?

jergins, Thursday, 26 April 2007 08:19 (twelve years ago) link

no, i bought it. it's okay when you want something super light. you never even tried it! you don't know!

on the left is saint james.

i had completely forgotten about the barbancourt. there's another almost empty bottle of goslings back there, and that fucking sailor jerry's. and the poor little wee bottle of malibu still: the neglected little sister of the rum cupboard.

and jim beam? wtf?

lxy, Thursday, 26 April 2007 16:39 (twelve years ago) link

you will be amused to know that i had to stand on a chair to take that picture.

lxy, Tuesday, 1 May 2007 04:17 (twelve years ago) link

i bought a tough bottle of rum last night, can't even remember the name, left it at the party. but! i got good and drunk until the soda ran out and I introduced this girl Mikaela to the pleasure of rum rickeys and she got sauced. the headache today is worth it.

jergins, Sunday, 6 May 2007 12:32 (twelve years ago) link

i don't know how i missed that link to the havana rum museum till now. according to Lonely Planet Cuba, they also give excellent dancing lessons at the museum. let's go!

lxy, Sunday, 6 May 2007 19:26 (twelve years ago) link

(children get in free. this is amusing me all the livelong.)

lxy, Sunday, 6 May 2007 20:49 (twelve years ago) link

it's payday so i bought 4 bottles of rum and a carton of cigarettes. what a happy happy thing.

and since i know you're going to ask, i will save you the trouble and just tell you:

mt. gay, goslings, flor de cana 7 year, cockspur, benson & hedges

the latter i will save for your homecoming.

lxy, Friday, 11 May 2007 03:53 (twelve years ago) link

i have earthshattering rum news

when you first open a bottle and take a whiff, you may not get an accurate representation of what the rum's like

i guess it's like wine. (fuck wine connoisseurs). let it breathe some and then smell, you get a better idea of what it's going to be like

jergins, Wednesday, 10 December 2008 04:48 (ten years ago) link

starting from a really light one and then working my way darker to the blackstrap now makes me think that u get drunk in a different way vs. staying with the same thing all night

jergins, Thursday, 11 December 2008 05:54 (ten years ago) link

this sounds like a fun progression, but i never acquired an appreciation for rum.

tehresa, Thursday, 11 December 2008 06:11 (ten years ago) link

yeah, me too except mojitos
but i will appreciate RUM vicariously

t. silaviver, Thursday, 11 December 2008 06:19 (ten years ago) link

i'm not trying to talk anyone into anything, but if you were to try one please try flor de cane 5 year with soda water, fresh and bubbly, a nice juicy lime, and ice. one shot. measure it out. make no quick decisions. pass no judgement until the end of the first. by the start of the second you won't regre it

jelky, Sunday, 14 December 2008 08:47 (ten years ago) link

starting from a really light one and then working my way darker to the blackstrap now makes me think that i will feel like shit the whole next day

jelky, Sunday, 14 December 2008 08:50 (ten years ago) link

xp he's right, you know

lxy, Sunday, 14 December 2008 09:52 (ten years ago) link

max max max max, Friday, 2 January 2009 18:18 (ten years ago) link

word up

i always thought i hated barbancourt. something about the higher proof throws off the careful calibration of drinks.

it's worked this weekend though. the local liquor store is shit!

from kira:

hahaha funny story.

so brian got a job at this new restaurant in town and for some reason, they had to train him to serve alcohol even though he is too young. so i guess he was talking to his coworkers and the bartender about drinks and they were talking about drinks with rum and brian said something about a rum ricky. but i guess no one had any idea what he was talking about and the bartender said he had never heard of that drink before... haha so brian felt really stupid i guess, so he asked me about it and i told him that, yes indeed, it is a real drink. but i thought that was really funny and weird....
