I had to laugh about that, Steve.
Way back in the day when I was in college, by best friend and I had the nicknames of "Bartles & Jaymes" due to the amount of wine coolers we drank.

You had me at “panty dropper.” :thumbsup2:

I’ve had Truly a couple of times, and enjoyed it. I say hell yeah, there’s a niche for drinks like that and we should embrace them.

The Wife Likes the Truly's. (as you know Steve) :wink05:
The first time she had one she said, "these things are dangerous". 5% Alcohol and it tastes like flavored fizzy water.
A few of those and she becomes quite agreeable to most anything. :bigsmile:

I think Naty Light has the best seltzer name for their product: Aloha Beaches.

Basically this stuff is like mixing vodka with the Le Croix.

My wife likes to drink the Bai drinks too, and they look similar
One day she grabbed a White Claw on accident, and didn't realize it till she took a big drink, it was 9am. Lucky for her she works from home. Kids loaded the garage fridge, now we have to check when they are done.

Still confused :ROFLMAO:

Not challenging you, just trying to understand...

So, I usually get Meyer Lemons, when I can, and use a bunch of those, with 100 proof Vodka, and they sit in sealed glass vessels, until ready.

Then, I put it in the freezer, but it doesn't freeze, 'cause its 100 proof...

I pull it out, and put a shot or 2 in some OJ, and it tastes like a Dreamsickle.

It will also sneak up on you like a rattler behind Helen Keller....

So, I guess I'm asking, do you mix Limoncello with Vodka? Or, is there a mixer? What's it taste like?

Just wondering...

Limoncello straight is tasty but a bit sweet. Mix with vodka, tonic water, a few drops of lemon juice, some lemon zest over ice

Not at all sure why you would assume I made the same concoction as you.

Re: What're you drinkin'?

Sun Aug 25, 2019 8:31 pm

For the record, I fully supporting using alcohol as a mixer. thumbsup

I didn't make the assumption, I said I was confused, and sought clarification.

Not sure why you're being so snarky,if you didn't want to discuss it, why post it on a discussion forum?

Weird.

For those with a passing interest...

Limoncello can be made at home by soaking lemons/lemon zest, etc., In 100 Proof Vodka, or Grain Alcohol...

After 30 days, it's a nice, smooth shot for after dinner, or on a hot day. You can just keep it in the freezer.

Making a drink out of it, like with OJ, gives it an interesting, Dreamsicle taste, that appeals to the ladies :wink05:

I was just asking if he was mixing Vodka & Vodka, or Vodka & Grain Alcohol...

Didn't think it would turn into a thing...

Edit: Not being "snarky", just brief as I was on my phone and hate typing on the thing. It really appeared to me you were locked on to your version of high proof lemon liquor which typical Italian Limoncello is not 50% alcohol. There are various recipes with Limoncello mixed with Vodka, or those two and tonic or mineral water.
