    I find that bourbon is a great way to get that artificial sweetener taste out of my mouth.

    Re: I hate cola

    I recently kicked the caffeine habit. I still get a little in iced tea, but I don't get headaches when I go a day without it, so I know the habit is gone.

    I drink bourbon or Dickel with Coke (Zero, now) while watching college football games because that's what I drank at them back in the day, and the taste is part of the atmosphere.

    I like bourbon and Coke (though I tend to make 'em strong, 2:3 b:C) but it's my experience that the old woody ones don't work that well.[1]


    1. "old woody" refers to the bourbon[2]

    2. Though I guess an "old woody" Coke wouldn't work that well either.

    Why would you ruin a perfectly good coke by putting ice in it?

    Re: I hate cola

    I couldn't agree with Tim more - if you like your bourbon with coke, drink it that way. It's not the way I drink my bourbon often these days, but for years all I drank was Jim Beam White and Cola premix cans.
    Many of the people who I used to drink premix with 20 years ago still only drink them and can't stand their bourbon straight. *
    If I'm visiting someone, and they offer me a premix can, I'm just as happy to drink that as I would be if if they'd offered me some Stagg or Pappy 23 neat.

    * Note: Australia is the worlds biggest consumer of premix bourbon drinks (I think Chuck quoted this in another thread, but I couldn't find it)

    I didn't even know they made those. I, for the life of me, can't recall ever seeing one in stores.
