1. Cocktails at brunch: Bloody Mary or Mimosa? Bloody Mary during cold weather, and Mimosas if it is hot outside. Both are pretty fantastic drinks if made right, but too cheap of a champagne can ruin a Mimosa and its easy to make a bad Bloody Mary if you don't know what you're doing.
2. Do you have a favorite food/drink pairing? A good Pinot Grigio with Veal Scallopini (or Scaloppini al Vino) or linguini with clams in a white wine sauce. Of course, you can never go wrong with beer and pizza. Also a favorite is Lazy Magnolia's (a Mississippi brewery) Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale with pecan crusted chicken is a great pairing.
3. Beer? Wine? or Cocktails? Why? Beer or Mike's Hard Lemonade on a hot day hanging out with friends. White wine when it's a more formal event. Cocktails, particularly a margarita or cape cod when out at a bar, unless I don't want to spend much money, then it's then it's Bud Light.
4. Red wine or white wine? White wine. I can't stand red wine.
5. Tell me about the hard stuff. Nothing beats Tito's Handmade Vodka. It's a wonderful smooth tasting vodka, and it always gives me lovely dreams.
6. Cigars? No, I've tried to smoke them, but I hate them for two reasons: 1) they smell like burning dog shit, and 2) I can't get the taste out of my mouth the next day.
7. When was the last time you were hungover? Worst hangover? It's been several months since I've had a hangover, but the worst lasted about 3 days. I do my best not to drink enough to have a hangover. It was due to mixing alcohols. I keep with one type of alcohol a night, so that I want get sick. I can't mix liquor and beer or change the beer I am drinking or drink more than one type of liquor.
8. Best hangover cure. Before I go to bed, I take three-four ibuprofen (depending on how much I had to drink) and a full glass of water. I usually don't have a hangover if I do this.
9. Craziest/baddest thing you did when you had too much? Did you remember it or did your friends inform you? Make it a fun one! Ok, this might break some illusions some of you have about me, but several years ago, I got really drunk in New Orleans and gave a go-go dancer a blowjob while he was dancing on the bar. I remember it quite well. I am cursed/blessed with remembering everything when I've been drinking. It was slutty and a hell of a lot of fun at the time. And yes, I'd do it again if given the chance, lol.
BONUS Are you a cheap date? How many drinks does it take you get you into bed? Yep, I'm probably a cheap date, especially if tequila is involved. Tequila makes me horny, and I am not one to drink a whole lot, so yeah, I'm a cheap date. If on a date I am unlikely to drink more than two or three drinks. If out with friends, I rarely drink more than the equivalent to a six pack of beer.
So there you have it. My TMI questions about booze.
