Who here was at that Irish Pub get together we had in DC a decade ago?  Ali, Blue911, JCA?  I recall test driving a couple of picklebacks there.   :glug: :D

Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeriste I just saw a commercial for the Captain and ginger (ale I suppose).      What has this world come to?

Now, just saw a Jim Beam and ginger commercial on the Dodgers/Phillies' game.

Tequila and ginger is pretty good, but tequila and Fresca is even better.

What's in a high ball?

Typically a shot of bourbon mixed with ginger ale over ice.

The thing to keep in mind is there are two approaches to ginger ale. You get the horrible, horrible, cloyingly sweet like Canada Dry, and then you get the less sweet, way more bite versions like Vernors.

Vernors and rum goes together -really- well. Especially a dark rum like Kraken or Captain Morgan Black.  The idea of putting rum into Canada Dry however, is just nasty.

My favorite bar conversation - spoken by Cliff on the TV show "Cheers"

“WELL YA SEE, NORM, IT’S LIKE THIS… A HERD OF BUFFALO CAN ONLY MOVE AS FAST AS THE SLOWEST BUFFALO. AND WHEN THE HERD IS HUNTED, IT IS THE SLOWEST AND WEAKEST ONES AT THE BACK THAT ARE KILLED FIRST.  THIS NATURAL SELECTION IS GOOD FOR THE HERD AS A WHOLE, BECAUSE THE GENERAL SPEED AND HEALTH OF THE  WHOLE GROUP KEEPS IMPROVING BY THE REGULAR KILLING OF THE WEAKEST MEMBERS.  IN MUCH THE SAME WAY, THE HUMAN BRAIN CAN ONLY OPERATE AS FAST AS THE SLOWEST BRAIN CELLS. EXCESSIVE INTAKE OF ALCOHOL, AS WE KNOW, KILLS BRAIN CELLS. BUT NATURALLY IT ATTACKS THE SLOWEST AND WEAKEST BRAIN CELLS FIRST. IN THIS WAY, REGULAR CONSUMPTION OF BEER ELIMINATES THE WEAKER BRAIN CELLS, MAKING THE BRAIN A FASTER AND MORE EFFICIENT MACHINE. THAT’S WHY YOU ALWAYS FEEL SMARTER AFTER A FEW BEERS.”

Typically a shot of bourbon mixed with ginger ale over ice.

Theoretically, it's any alcohol and mixer, served in a tall glass, for refreshment. There are also low balls served in short glasses.

Vodka and ginger ale, rum and coke, whiskey and soda, they all qualify.

Already on my calendar! 

I picked up a bottle of the Blackened whiskey during the last sale.  Haven't opened it yet, but wondering if anyone's tried it?

Sounds like the perfect excuse to pick up some Maker's 46 - To be enjoyed only when we win a game, this postseason.
