Why is The Rum Always Gone? part 1



So, this is something I've been meaning to do. A weekly segment on what I'm drinking. As I really like rum, I can see this segment primarily showcasing rum. Today, however, I will not talk about a rum. Do you know why? BECAUSE ALL THE RUM IS GONE! (And, for that, I has a sad.) So, in lue of rum, I am drinking what I call a poor man's screwdriver. Get some Crystal Light Sunrise, or any other orange powder mix. Make a highly concentrated solution (Or to taste.) add vodka (In my case, 100 proof Pinnacle.--Yes, this post was written directly after yesterday's. Ergo the vodka mention yesterday.) and a splash of sprite.

Pinnacle is a fairly decent vodka. It gets even better when you factor in the "broke college student" factor. At $18 for a handle*, you won't be needing a bank loan to get drunk. By itself, it's drinkable, but a bit bitter. When it comes to mixes, however, Pinnacle is your man. There's a feint burn, and just enough taste to remind you that you're drinking an alcoholic drink.......Unlike Bernetts, which turns into a fucking ninja when mixed. I might mention this vodka later. For now, let's just say that it was the first drink to give me a hangover....The next day I could taste my headache in class.

That's about all for this post. There's a reason I haven't started this series before now. This post pretty much covers the drink (and more, even) but still seems short to me.

*A note on prices: I live in Alabama, and in addition to having high sin taxes, our liquor stores are state owned. Your prices may be different.

  2. My tip for getting decent vodka...buy cheap vodka and then run it through an old water filter 3 or 4 times!

  16. Pinnacle ain't bad.
    They have the whipped cream flavor, which is awesome to mix with OJ. Instant creamsicle.

  17. All the rum is gone from this house as well, my gallant friend. The girlfriend cut me off for a little bit after my escapade the other weekend. I could never really get into vodka after a binge my friend and I had with it our first year of college. It was the only thing we had to drink on a road trip from Florida to New York because somebody let up precious little baggie fly out the window and onto the interstate at night...
