Lucid and Clandestine do not mix. :puke:

However, I've mixed others before with successful results. Unfortunately I don't remember the secret ingredient.

YMMV

HA! I've never seen that.

On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.

Yeah. Sometimes I'll have a little extra that won't fill a glass, so I mix it with something to get the ratio to where I like.

I'm crazy like that sometimes.

I've done that with the bottom of my Lucid and a bit of St. George. It was actually good, it was one flavor after the other, Lucid first and St. George second. I only did it that one time though and I wouldn't do it with better brands.

Although I'd never do this with brands I think are really top notch, I mixed Lucid and Pernod and came up with something better than each of them. Maybe that says something about both. Oh well... I'd rather have another glass of VP instead, or, at least when I get home from work!

Guilty.

I've mixed some Blanchette and Clandestine residuals that came out good. I know this will turn a few noses, but Eich and La Fee Parisian wasn't bad ... from what I remember. :twitchsmile:

You should be ashamed of treating your Eichelberger that way. Yuk. :thumbdown:

There is nothing wrong with pouring a "short" absinthe but there is certainly something wrong with adulterating a handmade product with oil-mix swill.

You make me sad.

Oh, the horror.

(WARNING:not for the faint of heart) I have actually mixed Hill's with Green Moon...yet more evidence that two wrongs don't make a right. I guess I was hoping they might somehow cancel out each other's flaws...but then, what would that leave? (What can I say, I have an aversion to wasting $100+ on 2 bottles that won't get drunk...and still won't.)
I think, therefore I am. Or am I over-thinking? I am thinking it over...

They can always be used for educational purposes, bad examples!

There are new people coming to the forum every day and some will want a taste of something hideous. You'll be the hero. *devil grin*

Try 'em in root beer. NuPernod makes even the most commercial root beers somewhat enjoyable. ;)

Perhaps you could sell them to this guy.

And baubel, I'm not sure if I should take you seriously there, but now I'm having visions of a "spiked" root beer float. Perhaps fortunately, I don't believe I currently have any bottles of absinth(e) that need to be clearanced.

(and the ice cream in the float is tying in with the vanilla notes I get from Un Emile Sapin.)

I wasn't completely serious. I was more experimental back in the day and I don't take NuPernod seriously at all. :laugh:

Speaking of root beer, I've been wondering how it would accent tea and coffee.

I can see it. Caffe corretto can be pretty good, and I've popped one or two Altoids liquorice into my coffee at work to simulate the experience. Brings a whole new meaning to "Curiously strong" ;)

If memory serves me right, this thread was started by simple experimentation.

Why the fuck did I do that? Curiosity. So what. I tried it. I offered my opinion on the matter. It was just an experiment, maybe not the best, maybe not ground breaking but the ingredients were at hand and I had the opportunity. I didn't tell anyone they had to try it.


Good or bad examples aside, didn't someone say something about educational purposes?

I was curious, and the tea was awesome.

Where would all these cocktails, coffees, and teas be if someone didn't experiment? :twitchsmile:
