would you jack daniels in an irish coffee ?
 
edit : there's a "put" missing somewhere up there in the title.


simple question. I've got no whipped cream stuff in a can, only milk. So it's going to be a poor mans' irish anyway.

whaddya think ? waste ? or glory or bust ?

There, I've fixed your error and even showed some administrative restraint by not fixing all the punctuation and capitalization.

Considering people put it in coke (which is a foul soft drink), go for it.

You probably won't want to add much sugar to taste.

slartibartfast 2007-03-31 03:48 AM

cheers !

I drown my cooffee in sugar anyway, if ehat make s sense. by the way, i didn't bother with the mild and it's bary very nice :)

thank you for voting, I'll kiss your kids sometilme

D'you mean Coke is a foul drink, or that soft-drinks are foul?

I can't get started unless I have a rum and coke.*

*coke referring to any sort of cola.

slartibartfast 2007-03-31 03:53 AM

*shivers*


why not just cane suger ?

I can eat pure sugar and glucose without it being overpowering, but still find Coke more cloyingly sweet. I think it's the addition of citrus and acid.

Coke tar!

Doesn't seem odd - well, to me anyways. Some of the bars where I live serve various types of Irish Coffee cocktails. Warm or iced. I don't normally drink them though.

I don't really think much of coffee so I'd never dilute J.D. with he substance.

The man speaks sense. Listen to him.

the only thing that JD should EVER be associated with is hangovers and puking.

No mixers, take it like a MAN!

RID Scourge 2007-03-31 03:44 PM

I say go for it. Coffee with whiskey is pretty good. Though, I'm more likely to use the cheap stuff for mixing, like Thompson's. You can get a larger bottle of Thompson's for about half the price, so it's better for mixing. I usually just take Jack straight from the bottle.

I wouldn't put Jack Daniels in anything. Its a sub-quality bourbon. Even if I drank bourbon, which I don't (single-malt scotch man), it would never be Jack.

Maybe its the acidic bite that coke has that you don't like.

Denyer 2007-03-31 09:30 PM

Stuff like Irn Bru has sugar/fizz/fruity flavours. Coke and Pepsi seem formulated to taste as retchingly sweet as possible.

Could be the vanilla/vanillin.

flat coke is the best thing for the flu though, along with chicken soup.

not that i'd need the stuff myself.



edit : ...:glance:

Denyer 2007-04-01 04:22 PM

I'd like to try the original. Patent medicines and generally poor diet could probably account for some strange things in recorded history.

slartibartfast 2007-04-03 01:07 AM

yea, me too.

from the same article
Coca-Cola did once contain an estimated nine milligrams of cocaine per glass but after 1903 Coca-Cola started using, instead of fresh leaves, "spent" leaves - the leftovers of the cocaine-extraction process with cocaine trace levels left over at a molecular level
I have done a few tests, and it would seem that cold coffee is a good mixer for JD, I assume this avoids wasteful evaporation of alcohol. I'm still not set on wether you can really taste the difference with a cheap brand in...

*gulp*

*shiver*


... in coffee, so I'm drinking it neat as well.

JD is not bourbon
 
If you listen to the folks at Jack Daniels ... you'll note that JD is Tennessee whiskey. Although it has basically the same formula as bourbon ... 80% corn or whatever ... It is made in Tennessee, and it is charcoal filtered.

I certain wouldn't drink it straight
