    What's your euphemism for bourbon?

    When I visit my friend Bill at his place at the lake, he asks me what I want to drink. My standard response is "Well, I do believe I will have another Big Orange." So, Bill pours me some 1783 or maybe some Ritt.
    Our routine is an homage to a '50s comedy classic by Andy Griffith, "What it was was football."
    Well, he whopped me on the back and he says, "Buddy, have a drink!"
    "Well," I says, "I do believe I will have another Big Orange."
    Now, what is your favorite euphemism for bourbon and what's the story behind it? (I have a variation on this story that I would also like to share--later.)
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Re: What's your euphemism for bourbon?

    With friends I commonly drink bourbon with the request is usually "I'll have a brown water"

    The thread's about Bourbon, not mixers.

    "Pappy 30"

    It's a standing joke...

    Host: What'll ya have?
    Me: Pappy 30
    Host: You got it! (then pours whatever he has in his hand)
    Me: **COUGH, COUGH** (straining to speak) Smooth!

    Firewater.............
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    If my buddies are pouring I ask for "whiskey imported all the way from Kentucky."
