In our hey-day Kentucky and I would often start the evening with a a pint and a whiskey chaser or three – Jameson Irish Whiskey or sometimes Southern Comfort. It certainly did the trick, by the time we’d finished the third pint we were gone. But of course that is a young man’s game, try that sort of madness today and we’d probably keel over an die. For a while I toyed with various classic spirit drinks: Gin & Tonic, Bacardi & Coke, Jack & Black. But in the end Beer has always been my tipple of choice. You know where you are with beer and you’re more likely to pass out before you can do too much damage. They should write that on the bottle!
