    I don't much care for mixed drinks. I like my whiskey neat. With some of the higher proofs I have to chase after every sip. Not so much with 80 proofs.

    We can get Dickel in New Hampshire but not in Vermont,just as I can get Very Old Barton in N. Y. state,limited but not at all in Vermont,go figure but it does prove your point.

    Now that I'm past 60 I'm finding I enjoy my bourbon in a tumbler full of rocks,used to drink Whiskey and Tequila straight,my stomach ain't what it used to be.
    Thankfully peppers of differing varieties don't bother yet as I enjoy my Mexican/TexMex food too much.

    I like tequila pretty well but I prefer whiskey. Haven't found a rum that I really like. I lived in New Mexico for a few years and I have spent a good deal of time in Texas. I truly love Mexican/TexMex food. I also developed a taste for Texas BBQ and Coronas.

    When I was 13 the family moved to Arizona,Tucson for my fathers health and the whole family fell in love with Mexican food,darn good thing too as if you bought hot lunch in school that was what was on the menu.

    It was very good in New Mexico and Texas. Those folks know how to cook. I haven't found a Mexican restaurant I like anywhere else.

    We should probably take this to the "what's for dinner" thread. Southlake seems to be in a banning mood. LOL.

    I didn't drink much in New Mexico. In Texas at the bars and restaurants Corona was a buck apiece and 50 cents in Mexico. You could also get the hard stuff cheaper in Mexico and bring a certain amount of it back across the border. Good times.

    The last time I was in Texas and New Mexico was in 06 and I couldn't locate any Lonestar in a store for the life of me. Bought a case in N. M. and somehow it wasn't as good as I remembered as when I was in my twenties and I sucked them down one after another, that or my tastes had changed/matured.

    I think I learned my lesson and now that I'm aware it won't happen again.

    That's good. I don't know how you can handle that much champagne. That stuff sneaks up on me. I can't judge when I am having too much. Before I realize it I am plastered. One bottle is about all I can handle. I thought I was a drinker but I could not keep up with you.

    Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker. Champagne usually gives good results. Sounds like you are having a good time tonight. With the pressure you are under it is probably good to blow off some steam.

    Now that I am 77 I find myself enjoying my whiskey sitting down. Standing and walking is a bit of a problem LOL.
