    Re: What's your euphemism for bourbon?

    At home any reference to a liquid is understood to mean bourbon, unless specified otherwise.
    "Unless it survived a tornado, weathered a snow storm in Scotland, and then spent a year on boat before returning home, I'm not really interested."

    "Beverage." Just "beverage."

    Cheer. That about covers everything. Kristin's work email flags words such as beer, alcohol, bourbon, pretty much all the good stuff. So going to BeerWorks becomes CheerWorks. Liquor Barn is Cheer Barn. Going after work to buy X cheer, what are we cheering for tonight, cheer me up, boy I could use some good cheer right about now etc.

    Shiner gets that sort of dubious treatment in Texas: any restaurant chain here that has a Happy Hour, and has Shiner, typically prices Shiner as an "Import." [Insert "Look of Disapproval" here.]

    On topic: I call it Ruckus Juice. Also, a few years back, I taught my then-4 year old daughter to call the liquor store the "Turkey Store," as she went with me often, and I really didn't need her repeating the phrase "liquor store" at pre-school. We both still generically refer to any bourbon as "Turkey."

    That drives me crazy as well. At least some places finally added a "Premium" category in between Domestic and Import. Of course, many of these same places charge the same for Premium and Import, but at least it's accurately labeled!

    HA! Do I dare use that one tonight? I might have to pour a few for myself before I try that.
