Anyone tried Lunazul Tequila yet?

I have a bottle of both the silver and the repo at home and enjoy them both. It's going for just under $20 here and has a $10 mail in rebate on one bottle. It's a hell of a tequila for $10.

On the hunt for Tanqueray Malacca...

I was in Bills this past Tuesday and they found some more bottles while doing a remodel if anyone is interested.

Good Sipp'n Rum

Cointreau vs. Triple Sec... Margarita Debate

Exactly, Cointreau is overpriced. The Citronge is just as good, cheaper and a higher proof (I think).

orange flavored vodkas

A vodka collins made with Smirnoff Orange is a nice refreshing drink and the price is right.

Foolproof drinks in the clubs

Crown/Rocks or Crown/Water. Pretty tough to screw those up & all bars have Crown.

Tequila and Coke? WT?

Try some tequila, squirt and a squeeze of lime. Good stuff.

On the hunt for Tanqueray Malacca...

Here you go. FWIW I think it was pint or half pint but they may also have 750s. I was in there today and forgot to look, sorry.
BTW you will probably want to call during daytime hours and ask for either Jerry or Chuck. They are the owners, I'm pretty sure the college kids working at night won't know anything about it.

PS Where are you located at? This place is in the middle of Nebraska.

Tequila and Coke? WT?

"Designed to drink with coke" are the words of Cuervo marketing, not mine. I'm guessing that is their way of saying it's not to be mixed the same as traditional tequilas. I did have someone tell me they tried it in a margarita with less that positive results. To which my reply was also less that positive.;)

I recently saw some in a liquor store here in NE. I can put you into contact with them if you like.

Tequila and Coke? WT?

Cuervo Black is an anejo tequila that has been aged in charred oak barrels. It is designed to drink straight up or with coke. To me it taste like tequila with a whiskey finish. Not great, but not bad. If nothing else you should try it just to say you have had it and can give an informed opinion.

Need $200+ gift cognac recommendations

I know Hennessy offers a gift pack that contains a 200ml of XO and a 200ml of Paradis that goes for around $150.

Apple cider cocktail?

Apple cider and Captain Morgan is a solid drink.

Absolut New Orleans Vodka

They are only making 35,000 cases so it could be a collectors item. While I'm not a fan of Absolut I would have no issues buying some since money from the sell goes to a good cause.

Mcallan or Oban?

Is he much of a golfer? If so, you might look into getting him a bottle of Pebble Beach.

360 Vodka

I'm aware of the concept, but I was curious as to thoughts on the quality of the product.

Evan Williams

Don't know if it is considered a "true" bourbon, but Bernheim Wheat is excellent stuff.

EWSB is excellent stuff. I've heard great things about Elijah Craig Single Barrel, but have yet to try it.

St Germain Elderflower Liqueur

Anybody had this stuff? I've only had it straight and in the signature cocktail, but I was pretty impressed with it.

There are a bunch of recipes here that I'm going to have to try.

Looking for a good affordable brandy

Christian Brothers, you can pick up a 750ml for around $7-$8.

Miller Chill

So how is it different from ABs Tequiza that has been around for almost 10 years?

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey

Has anybody had this stuff? Looks like it's mainly just available in Colorado but is starting to make it's way into some surrounding states, I know it is available in Nebraska for sure. I've read so good things about it, but was just looking for some more opinions. It is on the pricey side, $55 for a 750ml.

Thanks

Sangrita for tequila sipping

Tapitia makes a decent one. FWIW I add some OJ to it or it's more like bloody mary mix. I was fortunate enough to spend time in Guadaljara and tour the Cuervo and Don Julio distilleries we had sangrita with every meal with each one being different. Some were more tomatoey(is that a word?) and some had more citrus taste to it. It all depends on what you like.

Blended/Frozen Drink Recipes

I'm having a BBQ next weekend and I was hoping you all could help me with some good blended/frozen drink recipes. I'll probably stick with something simple like a nice G&T for myself, but my wife and her friends prefer something from the blender.

Thanks
