I Get Email

from Daddy:
Well, I went and bought some Rye and Sweet Vermouth in anticipation of creating the perfect Manhattan.   Results: Let's say I'm not a big fan of rye, but I can see acquiring the taste for it.  However, that vermouth crap is just NASTY!  Who can drink that shit and say they like the taste?  I had to catch the cat and lick his ass just to get that vermouth taste out of my mouth.  YUCK!  Pass the raw oysters and broccoli please.


  1. Hmm... and all of a sudden I have a much deeper understanding of where you get your outlook on life. :)

  2. I've read the whole email about 5 times and I laugh every single time at the cat's ass part, like a little dumb baby.

    (Also, there was a V-Talk Summer's Eve ad on your sidebar. What jacknut created that ad campaign?)

  3. Rye whiskey is good. I like it because it is not as sweet as bourbon. Good vermouth is the key to a good manhattan. Did he buy the cheap stuff? Gallo? That is shit! Another thing-- vermouth has a short shelf life. So if he went to a shitty liquor store like the one in my neighborhood where the liquor bottles have dust on them, he might have gotten a bad batch. Just sayin'.

  4. Gotta get Noilly Prat sweet vermouth. And only use a little bit. Never more than half a shot. Plus, if you can find Canadian Rye, it's smooth as glass. Quite tasty.
