Something fun with tequila. It's been a long week.
Scotch - my baby is away. Sigh.
Cherry Vodka, lime juice, splash of simple syrup over ice.
Blue Moon and Orange
Peach vodka & diet Pepsi.
Definitely not peach vodka. Tried some Absolut Apeach last weekend and got very sick.
Iced tea w/ lemon. Yum. And no hangover this morning.
Same here, R10. Iced tea, and earlier, coffee.
Just saw the most disgusting mixed drink on Sandra Lee(no hitting, please) Butter Martini: 2 parts vanilla vodka + 1 part butterscotch schnapps + 1 part pineapple juice. Shake with ice, serve in a classic martini glass. I won't be indulging. r9 I'm with you, lemoned iced tea.
Jack and Coke
Cold chardonnay from the box.
Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc. I ran out of beer.
Cheers, R16 *clinks plastic wine glass*
Scotch and insulin. Hold the ice.
Liquor and Crystal Light. Adam hates it but I just tell him to shut up and bend over.
Some bright pink wine that a friend pressed on me the other day. It's something called Foxwoods or Foxhunt or something...pretty sure it's of the $1.99 variety. Half a bottle of that pink stuff & three Xanax....it's a nice buzz.
lots of beer
R11, that actually sounds kind of delicious.
starting cheaply with canned beer
One can of pumpkin pie filling
Equal amount vanilla ice cream
Brandy to taste
Blend until fully combined
Belvedere Gimlet. Many of them
a ginger ale with a splash of cranberry, please. On the rocks.
Today is one of those days I feel like drinking again. I'd have my old Manhattan: rocks, dry vermouth, smoked lemon garnish. Dear god, I could throw back twenty of those right now.
Did I mention that I get horny when I'm drunk?
I'm on my second Tequila Sunrise made with frozen concentrate OJ.
I drank beer and more beer. Loved all of it
Grey Goose straight from the freezer.
[quote]smoked lemon garnish
He smoked a lemon
A hard Chard.
Wild Cherry Pepsi.
Signora Stone, is that you, r46?
Life is too short not to have a little umbrella in your drink.
[quote]Life is too short not to have a little umbrella in your drink.
Love me some innuendo with my Crown and Coke.
The male staff for the UK royals is/was (allegedly) primarily gay, and older. The idea is that they prefer men who won't marry and will take a lifelong job.
A much-repeated story is that the (late) Queen Mother called down for a drink. When asked what she would like, she said, "I don't know about you old queens, but this old queen would like a gin and tonic."
She was known to love gays and gin. So it's possible.
U.S. IS good for well drinks. Can buy "handles" of vodka (who cares?) for 9.99.
So I would vote for vodka and a plane ticket cocktail. Off to a rational nation. with a less ripped-off, defensively ignorant sucker population.
Finishing my last G&T before bed.
R53 had one too many.
r44 Is that Slivovitz?
Vodka and Crême de Cassis on the rocks.
You're still doing Friday night cocktails?
Why not continue a good thing!
A low carb Hurricane, a drink I invented.
let's have some vodka
If you've got basil overgrowing your backyard garden, make some basil simple syrup (combine 2C water, 2C crushed basil, 1C sugar & simmer 15 minutes, then steep until you remember it's there & strain). Chill -- store extra in the freezer.
Add as much as you like to chilled vodka over ice (maybe with a little lemon or lime juice) -- or add the vodka/syrup combination to a tall glassfull of 7Up or ginger ale with ice.
Well that's not right -- it's equal parts water & sugar plus half as much crushed basil -- so 2C water, 2C sugar, 1C crushed basil.
Sorry -- must have added too much vodka to this serving....
Pour it all DOWN
Captain 'N' Coke
LOTS of it
I'm not too crazy about dessert drinks but this isn't bad:
1 oz (or more) banana schnapps, 99 Bananas recommended, or crême de banane
1/2 oz crême de cacao
Dash amaretto, optional
1 oz half and half
1/2 fresh banana, peeled
Combine all ingredients in blender with crushed ice and whip until smooth.
Ugh, far too sweet.
Actually, it's not that sweet. The ice and milk dilute the sweetness of the schnapps.
I had a dessert drink that was much sweeter. It was a White Russian whipped up in a blender with vanilla ice cream instead of milk.
ugh, no thanks
Gin + Regret
rum and coke
Xanax tea (unsweetened) with a Drano chaser.
Two vape bowls
Michelob Ultra, in the skinny cans
Chinese delivery: spring rolls, calamari, eggplant in spicy garlic sauce
Might go outside for one cigarette on the patio and then climb in bed to watch Shark Tank.
A great Friday night with my devoted dog.
I'm having a small glass of sherry tonight. Well, I should say that I'm having another small glass of sherry.
My Friday night Drinky Poo is a Coca-Cola with a shot of Grenadine, garnished with a maraschino cherry.
I'm having a hot cup of Irish Breakfast tea with sugar.
Smirnoff vodka and orange Faygo soda
vodka out of the bottle
Vodka, soda, lemon. I'm just r85, with a little shame left in me.
I'll have whatever Rachel Maddow is having.
Back when I was in college, we would make screwdrivers out of Wolfschmidt's and Tang.
Someone please explain to the young'uns what Tang was ... it is what the astronauts drank
A bit of cabernet sauvignon for the bolognese, the rest of the bottle for me.
Diet tonic water tastes just the regular version, without the calories.
So a G&T with lots of fresh limes.
I agree, like is key
Lime is key
My latest Drinky Poo is some Cocoa made with milk and Ghiradelli. I have garnished it with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.
I am also having a Ciggy. It relaxes me.
Drinky Poo. Ciggy. A perfect combination!
I think it is going to be a glass of sauvignon blanc
Double vodka (the rail vodka at the usual Friday after-work hangout isn't Russian, so no issues there), soda, lime, tall glass.
After a horrible Halloween gorge on numerous horrible foodstuffs, I will be resurrecting an old standby, vodka-prune juice splash o soda.
"...and make it snappy!"
Friday Night started early this week
It's been a long week, R100.
I'm on the East Coast, so just a few hours to go.
[quote]Back when I was in college, we would make screwdrivers out of Wolfschmidt's and Tang.
I remember Wolfschmidt vodka and the striking green label. The vodka wasn't bad either, as I recall. Haven't seen it in years.
Almost time to drink!
I'm up for a Mai Tai to have with my fresh spring rolls. Then maybe Bi Bim Bap for the entree.
and a few beers
Cabernet Sauvignon and a long Epson Salt bath.
Gin, bitches, with much ice and a whisper of tonic.
Spritz with lots of fresh orange slices
Tonight, in remembrance of poor Colonel Protheroe, I am pouring gin and tonics with lime. A very simple drink for a very, well—shall we just say "simple" man.
I'm having a special bath as I type this
This was such a fucking long week.
Probably annoying coworkers in ways that I'm not cognizant of.
Having to get up super early.
Having to go on public transportation with people who walk really, really slowly and stumble around.
Having my life controlled by others (thru choices I've made, not being a victim here)
I had wine and beer (in moderation)
And anal sex
FRIDAY NIGHT - HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!
I would like to see Miss Marple played as a lush.
Laughing and having a. Good time
red wine - syrah
drink it up!
A nice tall glass of Daddy urine.
Whoopee, the local market has quarter bottles of Redtree Cabernet for a buck. It's actually pretty good. So nice to pick up a few when I don't want to be stuck with half a bottle of leftover wine or have a full box in the fridge.
Ha, Ha, I'll say!
Friday night: Very dry vodka martini with olives.
Saturday: During the football games it will be beers and shots of Patron tequila.
Sunday's: Football games will be watched whilst drinking a nice cabernet. Am loving Mondavi Private Selections.
Football means hot guys, and tequila

a strong margarita
it's a rough week, I"m counting down
My VERY LAST, bottled in glass, brewed Lipton iced tea, lemon and sugar. I am bereft. No more to be found, the new plastic bottled brew is dreadful. I am sipping slowly, I want to remember the taste forever.
Skinny vanilla decaf latte.
I'm off alcohol for a month....dammit.
Bota Box Merlot.
Just had a mango lassi with a very late lunch.
Nice weather in New York, FINALLY! I might have a margarita or two outside.
I've been watching "The Kitchen" on Saturday mornings on Food Network. Geoffrey Zakarian has started a revivial of sorts of drinks that were popular during the 50's and 60's. He along with Mad Men has awakened in me the need to try some of those drinks.
Last year, I was in love with Manhattans. My drink du jour is now Gin Gimlets. They are quite refreshing!
Rose'e Sweet Lime Juice
Weed, Rose. And lots of it.

Coca-Cola with some Grenadine to give that perfect sweet taste.
Wet vodka martini on the rocks with a twist.
Smirnov and Oxycodone. Just released from hospital after a major surgery.
Got a deal on some organic lemons, so, fresh, homemade(PITA, but worth it) lemonade tonight.

I condole you, r183. Save some Oxy for me.
I'd love a rather dirty martini on the rocks, but I'm going to have settle for a ginger ale.

Had some dental work today, so just some warm tea for me.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
