The Liquor Snob New Year's Eve Bender
It's finally here. We had fun on Thanksgiving, and we enjoyed our Christmas, but this is the day we've been waiting for. It's the holiday to end all holidays, and the best reason to stock your liquor cabinet...New Year's Eve. We'll be throwing a small gala this year, consisting of the interns (see, it's not all punishment to work here) and some friends and family. We're so excited, we had to post to tell you about our plans.
The Product: The most important part of any New Year's party is the booze. This year we've got assorted booze and cigars that were supplied by the fine folks at Tommy Guns Vodka. We've been looking forward to uncapping the bottles for months, and we finally have our chance to try Rumrunner's Rum, Speakeasy Scotch, Bathtub Gin, Hideaway Brandy, 4 Deuces Tequila, Bootleg Bourbon, Dixieland Vodka and Prohibition Whiskey, and we might even open up our second bottle of Tommy Guns vodka if we feel the behavior of our guests warrants it. As for the cigars, they're hand-rolled and Dominican, and we've tried a few, but we've had them waiting in a humidor for just this moment, and the moment has finally arrived.
We've also got a few bottles of liquor we haven't tried yet, so we'll be combining some reviewing into the party. You can expect to hear more about Hendrick's gin, Buffalo Trace bourbon, and two Vermont-made vodkas (Vermont White, which is apparently made from milk, and Green Mountain Sunshine, which isn't) in the new year. Also, since we're not big champagne drinkers, we got ourselves a nice, fat bottle of Jagermeister for the toast at midnight.
The Events: We'll be pretty much doing what you'd expect us to be doing. We'll be hanging out by the bar, mixing drinks at an uncanny rate. But around us, there will be beer pong and other drinking games, and possibly even some shotgunning.
We'll keep you posted of any wildness that springs forth from the party, and in case you're wondering, people will be sleeping here. If anyone plans to drive home, we'll be monitoring their drunkenness with our handy Alcohawk breathalyzers to help them make the right decision about getting behind the wheel.
Liquor Snob would like to thank our liquor and cigar sponsors as well...please go to TommyGunsVodka.com to find out where you can get your hands on the booze we mentioned above, and check out Al-Capone.com to find the great cigars.
