  1. Did anyone catch Iron Chef America last night? It was a mango challenge with each chef being paired with a mixologist. Showcased was a cooper alembic which was used to create a mango eau du vie. Mangos where chopped, mixed with vodka, distilled and consumed right on national television. It will be replaying tonight. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_ia/ep...6_49481,00.html Its worth checking out.
  2. Hanging would have been too swift a death. You should have tied him to chair, put on a gimp suit, placed your Brouille Cusenier over his head and begin water torture. That's gettin real medieval on this @ss.
  3. The Strong68 is best served using the Czech ritual (pouring in down the drain). I'd sooner lick the rim of the toilet bowl than drink that crap. But the Clandestine...you're in for a treat. If I had a magic lamp, the first wish would be to have that stuff flow from my faucets.
  4. Welcome. What type of coins do you collect? I'm an ancient collector (mostly Roman and Celtic). You've come to the right place. The members here are extremely knowledgable.
  5. These can be bought online via: http://www.worldwidechocolate.com/shop_cuba_sf_cv125.html
  6. From LdF's site: <<<<<<<<<< Czech Republic Visitors to Prague can now enjoy real French and Swiss absinthe from Liqueurs de France at the Roxy Bar Prague, Dlouha 33, 0 00 Praha 1, CZECH REPUBLIC Tel. +420 224 826 296 >>>>>>>>>>
  7. I've been to Pivo Dum. They have a bunch of strange beers and they can serve them in yard-like glassware. Good food but no absinthe to speak of there. Just crappy absinth. Ty the Slivovice instead. Finding absinthe in Prauge is not easy - much like finding a honest cab driver. I can think of only one bar that serves it.
  8. "Like Jagermeister but with a much more cinnamon-based flavour, more delicate and less sweet."
  9. I like it. It comes from Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) in the Czech Republic where there are 3 different types of Becherovka. It's herbal liquor that is popular not only with the Czech people but also the Germans that visit their country. Most tourists are introduced to it at U Fleku in Prague. The waiters circle the beer hall with trays full of two items - schwartz beer and Becherovka. It is typically drunk after a big meal and it’s said to have some homeopathic qualities. They say a week in pools at Karlovy Vary and some Becherovka can do wonders for one’s constitution. The "buzz" would be no different than any other type of schnapps. Only one type can be purchased in the States.
  10. From Boston and a Mencken quote (one of my favorites at that) - I like you already.
  11. Who would win on Jeopardy? Shane MacGowan, Ozzy or Keith Richards?
  12. Effen Vodka. Straight. Chilled. Name me smoother vodka. Fell in love with it at Red Square in Vegas. Green Chartreuse. Straight. Single Malt Scotch - Balwhine & Dalmore. On the rocks. This thread reminds me of the forum here: http://www.moderndrunkardmagazine.com/
  13. Wow. Great list. Only thing they are missing are the Baltic/Eastern European beers that are gaining in availability nowadays. There are some rare finds on the list. Besides what is listed above try these: Augustijn, Binchoise Blonde, Bink Bruin, Cantillon (any of them if you like fruit beers), De Dolle Oerbier, Delirium Tremens, Leipziger Gose (not Belgian but an interesting/ hard to find beer), St Feuillien Triple, Urthel Triple, Westmalle Dubbel.
  14. No, but I'll pick one up on my next beer run. Thanks for the tip.
