Welcome. Pour yourself a drink, and enjoy.
Me, I’m nursing a Boulevardier. It’s a strapped on Negroni : ditch the gin for bourbon.
One ounce Bourbon, One ounce Sweet Vermouth, one ounce Campari, straight up or on the rocks,
Poured into a mixing glass and garnished with a cherry or a twist of orange peel.
A serious libation. It’ll melt a snowflake for sure. The Vermouth rosso contests
the harshness of the Bourbon, but then the Campari joins the fight on the side of the Bourbon.
Or you can think of it as a Manhattan with the Campari substituting for the Angostura Bitters.
That there are people who don’t like Campari shows that there is no hope for humanity…..
& now for some seasonal choons. Not a lot of religion here, just music to drink & shit-post to :
Cheech & Chong :
Canned Heat :
Leon Redbone & Dr. John :
Beach Boys :
The Ronettes :
Jeff Dunham (Jingle Bombs) :
Cap’n Beefheart :
It’s not Christmas until you listen to Charles Brown :
Wanda Jackson :
Chuck Berry :
Clapton : (Performing for the then Pres. Clinton, but still showing that a white boy can play the blues)
Judy Collins :
Ry Cooder :
Yes, it’s really Bob Dylan :
& the finale. Silent night. By Tom Waits. Really.
May I take this opportunity to wish the Puffinati a pleasant & peaceful Christmas.
