Alcohol Review 2004

I know there are a few of you out there who aren't very adventurous in the alcohol department: you know what you like and stick to it . . . or perhaps you avoid certain drinks entirely because they have some sort of negative connotation)? I've been guilty of both, but trust me when I say that with roughly $50 and a group of friends who won't rag your ass for too long, you can have a lovely evening exploring the complexities of all sorts of "spiritous" beverages. Here are my recent forays into the "girly" department:

Smirnoff Ice Green Apple Somethin'-or-Other
They must be using Nashville as a test market for this because I went to the Smirnoff Ice site and they're pretty much disavowing any knowledge of such a drink. Adam found some at the Circle K on Belmont a few weeks ago, and holy shit, it's tasty. It's like a green apple Jolly Rancher - only you drink it and it has the ability to make you drunk. If you're lucky enough to come across it, buy some. I highly suggest it for situations in which you want to be inebriated but don't want to taste the alcohol.

Cherry Bomb
This is normally served as a shooter, but I see no reason why you can't have it as a drink. Of course, those of you with penises may feel more comfortable drinking it quickly . . . but either way, it's good. You must have Xtreme cherry vodka and Red Bull. Like another of my favorite shots (the Car Bomb), you just drop your cherry vodka - shot glass and all - into the Red Bull and guzzle. Mmmmmmmmmm.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Once again, a shooter that makes a damn good drink. All's you need's some vanilla vodka (if you're planning to make this as a shot, don't waste your vanilla Stoli or Grey Goose - get Smirnoff Vanilla Twist or similar), a splash of pineapple juice, and a dash of grenadine. Shake your vodka and your p.a. juice with ice, strain, and add the grenadine (which, ideally, will float on the bottom). This must be my favorite shot of all time.

I had more drinks to share, but I'm actually getting kind of bored (or thirsty . . .).
