Crown Royal & Patron are usually perfect for cocktails. If you want top shelf products neat (no ice, no mixers) I'd recommend Don Julio 1942 or Bookers.

I drink a lot of higher end stuff, because I do not need much anymore!

A personal Favorite is a St Germain Cocktail. The bartenders should know it, but most people have never heard of it. I like it on New years eve since the champagne is already flowing that night. But it is one of the most refreshing drinks I have ever had....

2 parts Champagne or dry White wine
2 parts St. Germain
2 parts club soda or sparkling water
Fresh lemon twist

I substitute 7up or Sprite for the club soda and I add a lime twist as well

Love that peat-y single malt scotch. The huge ice cubes chill the drink, but the smaller surface area (compared to smaller cubes or crushed ice) keeps the whiskey from getting too watery too fast.

I know a dude who swears by Crowntain Dew.

Never tried it yet. Or the Blessed Dew with any whiskey. I need to dew that one of these days.

St. Germain is a great liqueur. when making drinks that call for club soda I usually always add a splash of Sprite. It may just my personally preference but I prefer it.

I agree with St. Germain being great and The sprite instead of club soda wholeheartedly. I also like to add Lime to just about anything that gets lemon too. I often get a sprite with lemon and lime when I drink soda out which is very rarely anymore. The fresh juice just enhances the hell out of it!

Exactly. It's always the little things that separate average bartenders from the higher-end bars. Example, if something calls for lime or lemon juice most bars will use the bottled crap I prefer squeezing fresh.

Sure they are, when people are ordering $12 cocktails at a nice bar and want to impress their friends. My point is, for the average guy drinking at home, you can buy a suitable replacement at half the price and not really notice the difference.

True but depends on what ones definition of cheap is, usually Jack will do. I'm not ruining a bottle of Basil Hayden's.

To me, cheap would be Kentucky deluxe, bellows, northern lights. I've drank plenty of it in my time.

In a pinch once, a friend and I mixed diet dew with our whiskey. Wasn't bad at all.

Luxor is the one place in Vegas someone can jump from the top floor to their death inside the hotel. It is supposedly haunted from a few jumping and a bunch of construction workers died building it. I remember my old man taking me there the first month it was open when Holyfield/Bowe 2 was happening with the fan man. It is a dive in my opinion now.

All the MGM properties are top of the line, which the Luxor is. A lot of unreported suicides happen off of parking garages. The new City Center had the most work related deaths in recent memory.

Not really. Monte Carlo, Excaliber, Luxor aren't all that great.

you can get kentucky gentleman for $1 cheaper and it taste better At least when you're shooting it. I haven't had any brown liquor for almost a year though, vodka is healthier

Few years back I was hanging out with friends and drank a ton of redbull and yaeger with keystone light chasers. Shockingly, I passed out. Not sure how long later on, but my buddy's girlfriend wanted to play Guitar Hero III and couldnt get it to connect online. So I connect it (surprisingly fast). I look over at her and then blink. When I open my eyes I am on my back looking up at her.

"Why am I on the floor?"

You blacked out.

"**** you say? I dont black out. Why do I smell cigarettes?"

Your head landed in a full ashtray. Dont move.

"I hate you guys"

No you dont. And dont move.

So since then, I have not had yaeger, redbull OR Keystone Light. Never again.

I hate Jäger, mix in red bull and your liver is probably screaming at that point.

Only combination that will make me dry heave. It was almost as bad as the time I mixed blue agave energy drink and jack daniels.

My midtwenties are a blur.

The Luxor did have an old, almost spooky kinda feel to it. Everything was easily accessible, (food court etc) which I liked. It was alright, wasn't the worst place I've stayed in Vegas. That title goes to the stratosphere. (The bar at the top was pretty cool)

I actually work at a lounge in Mandalay. It's overlooking the strip 64 stories up. Next time anybodies in town first rounds on me, go Broncos!
