    Local store has these on clearance right now for $2 a bottle (normally $12 holy shit). Great stuff if you like pumpkin.

    I'm not up to posting a picture tonight and the reason is More Cowbell. It's an American Double IPA from Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. in Houston, TX. I try to drink local some of the time and domestic (craft) most of the time. This one is pretty good and 9% ABV.

    Oh snap you guys. I'm in for a treat tonight. My local liquor purveyor called me earlier to inform me that they got this gem in. I have been on their wait list for a bottle for over a year at this point. I wasn't sure when or if I would actually get a bottle of it (and the liquor store wasn't either, as they never know how many bottles of it they will get, or so they told me). It's distilled by Buffalo Trace, the same people that make Pappy Van Winkle and it has spectacular reviews. I'm almost afraid to open it because I'm worried it will ruin all other rye whiskeys for me, and it's not like I can get my hands on the stuff reliably.

    @artichoke, I don't think your car's cup holders are big enough for that bottle.

    Made a sugar-free mint julep with stevia.

    1.5oz Elijah Craig barrel proof Bourbon
    1.5oz water (to bring it down to a sane proof)
    6-7 mint leaves
    1tsp stevia in the raw
    Ice

    It's Suntory time.

    What is the point of sugar free liquor, it is still loaded with carbs anyways, yeah? I really wish they would out nutritional info on that stuff, it makes drinking as a diabetic a pain.

    Regular distilled liquors are carb-free from a metabolic standpoint. Flavored stuff is a different story entirely.

    Alcohol is different because it's processed by the liver and broken down into ketones instead of glucose, so it should generally be fine for diabetics.

    Beer is usually never good because it's essentially bread in a glass.

  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Watch Slut, Mumble Hivemind Drone Austin, TX Icrontian

    Correct. Regular liquors (gin, bourbon, whiskey, et. al.) are 0 carb.

    This was my diabetic, gin-loving father's favorite statement :)

  • d3k0yd3k0y Loveland, OH Icrontian

    I'm going to test this. Like a glucose test for pregnant chicks, but liquor test.

    Fast for the morning
    Test my sugar
    Down a bottle
    Try not to die
    Test sugar

    I'll report back later!

    lulz. You don't need to test it since other people have, but do recall carb free is not equal to calorie free:

    On average, one shot is the equivalent to about 1.5oz and for these spirits have a nutritional value of 0 carbs and roughly 64 calories.
