fav ALKIE recipes (wine/liqueur/beer/etc)


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

hey..okay this is my 2nd time trying to post this..stupid explorer crashed when i pressed "send" the first time..i'll try to be as witty as the first time

i am a late bloomer. i never got into the whole alkie thing until this feb at one of the many cast parties. see, i am always the babysister of the group: i drive and i have to make sure that none of my friends do stupid things that they'll regret later on

i hated beer (that is until i found rickard's red, not a light beer) becuase all my asian friends have a thing for light beer

now my friend introduced me to yummy sambuca or as frammy calls it sammy buca. black samuba+cran or sambuca shots are totally warms you up.

i taked up on frammy advice and bought all natural vanilla ice cream (will the vanilla beans) and pour rasberry wine liqueur over i described to wes/axel... "see it's the perfect balance of the bitterness of the alcohol, the tartness of the rasberry and the sweetness of the ice cream"... i like the fact that the ice cream no longer tastes super sweet (i hate that)

so what are you fav ways to enjoy alkie?
i love peach schnapps...when mixed with cere's fruit juice (ie medley of the valley or osmething liek that)'s heavenly

i am horribly allegric to vodka, so i cant have my cosmo..sigh
i get "hive" like symptoms where i get red for a week and sort of itchy all over... i am slowly building up my tolerance...but i sort of gave that up beacuse there are so many options out there

i usually order whiskey sour as my first drink..and by the 3rd, i am giddy as hell... it's funny, as you probably have read in my other posts, i get horribly red after any drink. and the funny thing is that it is dependent on the drinnk i have. one time, after i had a whiskey sour had the university pub, i had these "adorable" (as what my frineds calls it) fushia circles right at on the apples of my cheek. and by the 3rd drink (this is when i usually make my way to the washroom) i am beet red..

i heard that it's because asians lack the certain enzyme to digest alkie..quite sad..but slowly i am building up my tolerance

just finish my rasberry wine liqueur ice's so good
