Part one: I was at the VA ABC store next to the Harris Teeter near my house today. I was buying a bottle of dark rum (Gosling's) since I'd Twitter-ed some good tiki type drinks yesterday that used Myer's, but I'm not a huge Myer's fan. I was also debating a bottle of Smirnoff Black Cherry vodka since I wanted to try to make a different drink they'd made at Clare & Don's.
On my way out the door there I noticed a bottle of Rittenhouse 21 year old rye. I hemmed and hawed, I called tmfiii, I debated. After my visit to the Harris Teeter, I bought it.
I'm very excited about it. I'd try it tonight, but we hit part two...
Part two: I've been promising for a while that I'd make a video for my friend Mike Strack about how to make a Long Island Iced Tea.
Thanks to my glorious skills at teh webcamz, here's the second part:
And that's what I'm drinking right now.
Mmmmm. It ain't so bad, dudes. If a bit strong. Methinks I need more food...
