My God that’s a lot of alcohol.


#3

That sounds perfect right now.


#4

Yum!

Waaay better than the ‘Six Toed Cat’! : “The Six Toed Cat is made with care and professionalism by Bailey’s beverage director, Bryan Walsh, and in “The Cat” is blueberry & mint infused rum, lime, fresh mint, and ginger beer. It’s very mojito-ish with the rum and mint, but sweeter, and you get a bit of bite from the ginger beer.
The Six Toed Cat is served ice cold in a Mason jar and is best had on a balmy summer night”

I don’t drink due to a history of alcoholism in the family.

The closest thing I have to a drug is caffeine, which makes me all the more aware of how fucked up things are.

Please. Help me.


#6

That was a mere tipple for Papa.


#7

Exactly.

Exactly.


#8

A perfect Martini should be made by filling a glass with gin, then waving it in the general direction of Italy

Noel Coward


#9

I have a feeling that Trump prefers White Russians.


#10

I raise a glass to you all! [waving towards Italy, generally]


#11

Uncle Noel was onto something.


#12

Drink less coffee.
(That was easy.)
Next!


#13

Substitute the gin for rum, replace the bitters with rum, swap the lime peel for rum and use rum instead of ice and you’ve got almost the perfect drink.


#14

And the next four years will consist of me saying “shut the fuck up Donny, you’re out of your element”. Life imitates The Big Lebowski.


#15

i was thinking the same thing. i don’t mind a martini or three, but omg.


#16

Lips that touch Gin, shall never touch mine.

Now Whiskey, that’s another story…


#17

We could use a Sam Elliot right about now.


#18

Something about the mounted deer head and the mounted fish and the cat twixt the two. Just… something.


#19

Well…we can likely infer he thinks less of black ones.


#20

My acute powers of observation and analysis force me to conclude that you like rum. Don’t deny it, now.
