Diluted

When you have a bottle of everclear and you mix a cap full of it with a gallon of kool-aid you are commiting a crime against the everclear. It is like buying a muscle car and having it pulled by a team of horses.

I think people do this because they don't properly match their drinking to the occasion. In the above example they are doing it for show. They want to get drunk but not right away. They are tip-toeing into the shallow end of drunkeness. If this is your goal just drink beer or wine. I can respect that. If you are drinking everclear just drink the cap full.

PS Keep the mixers out of the good booze, you people kill me. It is like getting a $1000.00 an hour prostitute and having sex missionary with the lights out in the dark. A good liquor is meant to be enjoyed for its own sake. For the flavor it has. Good Vodka should be straight up or the most a Martini. Leave the OJ, Coke, Sprike, RedBull to the rails where it might be needed.

so you think that everclear is GOOD?

I have a bottle at home, I can't even smell it.

I'm a tip-toer ... I mix my Belvedere with lemonade... I admit it. Gone are the days when I could drink my liquor straight and remain standing for more than 30 minutes.

You forgot about ice...good scotch should be undiluted. I recently was sitting at a bar when the bartender was forced to pour a Johnnie Walker Blue Label on the rocks! I had to ask her if she was sure what she was doing...she said the customer gets what the customer wants.

If I was gonna dilute a glass of scotch, I wouldn't spend $75 for it.

Oh, and Everclear? Gak.

what about mixing prostitutes and everclear? or is that considered diluting as well?

100% agree hombre. That is why I buy the cheap shit because I am stepping on it with diet soda.

When you buy expensive good shit, don't step on it.

I don't even remember the last time I got drunk...that's really sad. Gone are the weekends of partying with friends and having grandma watching lil man..I actually look forward to my weekends with lil man and school now. =P I'm so lame.

A good vodka is best drank as a martini. I prefer dirty, with extra olives because they soak up the vodka and are a tasty alcoholic treat after the drink is finished. Oh martinis... now I'm craving one and it's 10 am.
