    Re: What's your euphemism for bourbon?

    I quite often tell my wife I'm feeling poorly, and I need some "Vitamin B".

    No, say "whiskey imported all the way from Frankfort" or Lawrenceburg or wherever your preferred brand is distilled.

    Re: What's your euphemism for bourbon?

    that Andy Griffith skit was a good one, I think I first heard it on Sirius years ago. I didnt know it was from '53, I woulda thought the 60's sometime. His show was timeless, I can still sit down and watch them today and enjoy them. Most stuff on TV these days isnt worth watching the first time it airs!

    on topic, I dont have any euphemisms for bourbon/whiskey, yet. My buddies and I will just grab something wherever we are, take a sip and say in a very hoarse and pained way "smooth". I dont know where that started.

    I always ask for an unpretentious domestic.

    Wow - I'm pretty boring as I usually call it bourbon. Although if I'm feeling all fancy, I might call it "our native spirit".

    Mrs TT texts me before I leave work and asks what Bourbon do I want a pour of when I get home. Love that woman.

    Nice! My wife calls it the "nasty" because she hates the taste of bourbon. Even when she "needs" a Hot Toddy, we can't seem to find one she can tolerate.

    I ask for "that drink that has drained my bank account!"
