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.
