2. Probably about 5 or 6 yrs ago I was on a Sazerac (the drink) kick...

I bought two bottles of Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye whiskey for about $50 or $60 a bottle at Goody Goody liquor store. I used about a half bottle, moved on to something else, then just kinda drifted off of drinking.

The other day I was watching a video about whiskey, and it was mentioned as being very expensive. I looked up the price on the web...$100 MSRP, but almost impossible to find. $550 - $800+ on the secondary market.

I think I'll have a sip now.

3. Mine is Death's Door vodka with a splash of vermouth

The perfect quarantini, shaken, not stirred. And Death's Door is a real thing, and despite the forbidding name in today's context, a favorite:

This is one a the very few (read damn few) vodkas that is actually produced by a small distiller. Not bought in bulk (by the tank truck or railroad tank car) and relabeled like a lot of vodka these days or redistilled (rectified) then bottled by by someone trying to look like a small distiller. Produced entirely from organic certified hard red winter wheat from Washington Island, Wisconsin.

In an effort to produce a more eco-friendly sustainable product, Deathís Door sources all their organic wheat from their home island. Unlike most vodka producers, Deathís Door starts from scratch -process and mash the grain, ferment it, distill it in small batches using a Christian Carl hybrid pot and column still, and bottle it so that it ensures quality and consistency from the grain to the bottling. Most of the other vodkas (in Russia and America) buy bulk ethanol, tweak it, and add water. This is a much more labor intensive process.

8. Ciroc vodka and fizzy water for me!

Went to the neighborhood liquor store last week to stock up on a couple of things, and before we really even asked, the clerk pulled out a 1.75l bottle for us, LOL! We couldn't resist. I have to use 2 hands to get it out of the freezer and pour it. It should last us awhile, at least.

Cheers!

9. That's tough to argue with as a coping mechanism. And Low Carb, too!

I like mine with diet ginger ale.

10. Tonic water has quinine so it may help!

Since chloroquine is derived from quinine. A lot safer than aquarium cleaner.

18. Modern tonic water only has a tiny amount.

Probably a good thing since people have been bringing up the fact that quinine and its derivatives can be really harmful if you have too much.

It's not going to do anything to the Trump Lung virus.

11. Maker Mark, some bitters and a little brown sugar.

2 months ago I thought it might be a problem.

Now itís coping!

Craft beer turned my too excessive beer consumption into a hobby.

16. I recommend Stoli

Must be a reason Russia only has like 200 cases of Covid right? I dunno maybe because Vlad Putin's a lying lieful liar, but my theory is the vodka so I'm loading my diet until further notice.

17. Tonic water has (a tiny) amount of quinine in it.

Undoubtedly not enough to do anything to Captain Trumps.

But I remember that the gin & tonic was born in British-controlled India to fight malaria.
