    You can buy Coole Swan at http://www.cooleswan.com/shop/. I got Coole Swan 700ml / 70cl (16% ABV) for $27 with free shipping. Please note: The bottle for export to USA is a 750ml / 75 cl bottle which is what I received. You can select Euros, Pounds Sterling, or US dollars.

    They recommend keeping it refrigerated and I'm having it over ice. Looks nice when you pour. I couldn't get much of a smell from it. You get hit with the single malt Irish whiskey and the dairy at the same time. As they merge together the Irish Whiskey becomes subdued and you're left with tame Irish Whiskey resting on your tongue numbing it slightly.

    You don't get alcohol burn in the finish like you do with Ryans Irish Style Cream Liqueur which I compensated for by mixing 1:1 with Horizon's Organic Chocolate Milk. I thought it would be creamier, possibly sweeter from the white chocolate but I might be missing it.

    Derrick Schommer from Common Man Cocktails says it's better than Baileys (sorry I don't remember which video) but it's been awhile since I've tried Baileys so I'm not sure.

    I tried their Truffles ($5.52 for a bag of 5 truffles) which were delicious but at ~$1.10 each I don't plan to buy it again.

    Conclusion: Overall it was okay. It confirmed my suspicions that alcoholic drinks just aren't for me. Once I had a White Rum and Lemonade which wasn't bad but there was something about it that bothered me; then it hit me, if it was just Lemonade I'd like it way more.

    I lost my hef glass or maybe it broke at some point. So, we settle for Duckstein.

    I got around to trying the new Mountain Dew Solar Flare. It reminds me of gummy worms. I'm not impressed.

    Green Mark vodka and Bolthouse Mango Ginger + Carrot juice.

    I almost wish I had just stayed sober.

    Beer with Mr. Freeze (freezie) in it.

  • GuppyGuppy Warren, MI Icrontian

    An Andrew W.K., but not shaken or served in a cocktail glass. So basically just a 1:1 mix of Red Bull and Bud Light.

    I love German Oktoberfest style brew. Trouble is, most brewers only carry it for the season. Heavy Seas Cutlass is year round. I just re discovered it, formerly marketed as Clipper City MarzHON this is a wonderful brew if you enjoy something malty and a little on the sweet side. Think Fat Tire but with far more character. Fantastic beer.

    Fat Tire during my first Tuesday night TF2 in 6 months

    Hippie Juice.

    It's pretty good. Not my usual kind of drink, but I like something fruity every once in a while.

    Schafly Pumpkin Ale out of das wooden mug. I agree with the solid rating. It's delicious

    So, I have a busy weekend ahead of me.

    The perks of having one of your employee's husbands work for Stone. Xocoveza isn't out for another week, so I had to humblebrag about that one. I have a sixer of the Coffee Milk Stout, which is another limited release going on at the moment. The bombers in back are their 18th anniversary IPA and the Green Flash is their Saison Diego.

    Pickle juice. It's pretty good.

    There was also some Jack Daniels and Steel Reserve, but they were pretty terrible.

    Drinking a 3 buck Chuck Cabernet Sauvignon. It tastes like cheap merlot and lip gloss.

    Are you going to do more wine and makeup reviews? I was into that.

    It isn't all that sour, but at least the energy drink tastes okay. The vodka? Too good.

    I've been wanting to make more of those. Here's a new one about UD Perversion Mascara and JP Chenet Merlot-Cab 2011
