Plastic or Glass?

Some of my friends and I used to joke during our senior year of undergrad that we’d be “classy” and not drink from any kind of plastic cup (especially Solo) once we graduated. Well, I’ve already broken that pact.One difference between then and now is I’m more willing to splurge for a higher-end alcohol. Fuck the cheap shit, and bring on the next level! I’m not trying to pull a rookie move and spill my guts (literally, like the majority of us have done at one point or another) drinking bottom-shelf during our undergrad years.

That being said, a friend of mine began compiling a list recently of new drinks she’s tried and liked. I think I’ll do the same and occasionally throw a few into these posts.

Three new favorites:

Godson:
½ oz. Canadian Whisky
½ oz. Southern Comfort Peach Liqueur
1 splash Amaretto Almond Liqueur
1 can Canada Dry Ginger Ale

Spider Bite
A good 1-3 shots of tequila (preferably Patrón Silver); then fill ‘er up with Red Bull.

Blackberry Martini 
¼ cup plus ¼ tablespoon of sugar
½ cup blackberries
1 splash berry brandy or crème de cassis
1 lemon wedge
Superfine sugar
¼ cup gin (or vodka—a lot of places use Grey Goose)
½ tablespoon Triple Sec
½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice

So anyways, back to my original point. To hell with restrictions on how you choose to drink your alcohol. It’s all going to the same place anyways.
So, “Get Up, Get Down.” Drink up.
