    May I suggest Schweppes Ginger Ale as a substitute for Canada Dry?

    What's in the funky red bottle with the yellow cap, and what makes the ginger ale bold?

    Any ginger ale gets bold when you dump bourbon in it. Just like I do. :ROFLMAO:

    LOL it's pomegranate in the red bottle, Was looking for grenadine, but that was all I could dig up. The Bold GA has a really spicy after bite that hits in in the back of the throat a few seconds after drinking it. Not a fan drinking it as a regular soda, but the spiciness of it blends well with the sweetness of the BSB.

    Personally, I prefer spiced rum and ginger ale. Perfect match. I have been drinking that since my Navy days many many years ago.

    Wait... You're supposed to mix soda with liquor?
    Why would anyone want to ruin perfectly good liquor? [​IMG]

    My thoughts exactly!!! Sometimes an ice cube or two, but that's it for me.

    Save the good liquor for the ice cubes. Buy the cheap stuff for mixing. Coffee taught me that. It's not that you need something to mix your booze with, it's that some drinks are vastly improved by the addition of alcohol. I think that may be Leroy Jethro Gibbs' rule no. 151. (which, before they quit making it, went great with Dr. Pepper!) ;)
    As to why you would have cheap liquor at all...well, you gotta drink something while the water's freezing.
    OK, straight shots with a beer back work pretty well to, for a while.

    Fun little factoid: in the early 80s, when I was stationed in Korea, the local version of rum cost about 1/3 as much as the soda for mixers. :Beer:

    In Scotland, they hold their nose when drinking Scotch Whisky. They say the smell makes your mouth water and if it runs down into the glass it'll ruin the whisky.:whistle:

    I had a friend back in the 70's who used to like Chivas and Tab.
    I think a bartender beat him to death late one night...

    I don't know about that. I generally don't drink any dark cola. Just doesn't sit right in my gut. Occasionally, I might have a root beer. That doesn't seem to bother my stomach as much as cola. Which brings up another delicious drink- bourbon and creme soda. That one is too sugary and rich for me to have very often, but man does it taste good. Bourbon and creme soda are like peanut butter and chocolate.

    We used to drink Captain Morgan with vanilla Coke. I don't care for Cap'n Morgan and I hate vanilla Coke but together they made a pretty good combo. But, it was the '80's :LOL:
