    Its Friday so you all know what that’s means, time for a drink!

    So what are you drinking tonight?

    I have been wanting to try an Apple flavored whiskey, so I picked this up today and it is pretty damn good.

    Pink Lemonade earlier, "welfare" cola with some peanuts in the glass for my nightcap.

    01rednavigator,
    How is it?....I enjoy whiskey....But if its sweet in flavor , it wouldn't be for me.
    Speaking of whiskey...I think I'll pour me a drink of Knob Creek....:D

    Never heard of that but do like to some times enjoy a good whiskey. Will have to try to look for some. Been battling flu I think. Was not feeling well at work when they passed out the shots so said I was fine of course. Good thing I had a week off scheduled it knocked me down hard. Finally feel like eating again. May have a couple shots of Makers tonight see if that helps. Can't really hurt :)

    Never heard that term before, welfare cola. Where did that come from?

    :) ok that I get. Not a soda drinker myself. When I do try one I can't tell the difference between the house brand and the name brand though. So if I was buying it I would go for the welfare brand too. From what i have been seeing the last decade or so though a lot of the people living off my taxes would no doubt turn their nose up at the off brand.

    Yeah... Well I heard about it on the internet, thought it was weird, and tried it one night...

    Its fantastic. I pretty much have a handful of peanuts in a glass of coke every night. Something about the salt, nuts and coke makes for a good snack/drink something... I dunno. I like it though.

    I have heard of it too but can't remember if I ever tried it since I have just never been a soda person. Wife is a pop drinker. Will have to ask her.

    Yep, you are probably right. Us folk who have to earn money drink the welfare pop, Those on welfare buy the name brand stuff.

    Yep, when it's free money why try to be frugal. Just burn through it all and complain you need more.

    It’s pretty sweet but I like it, wouldn’t drink it all the time but it’s a nice change up from my vodka and 7.

    You want to use oil roasted with heavy salt, Dry roasted not recommended (by me) It really is best with a full real sugar coke in a glass bottle but I do it with diet welfare soda so.....

    Okay, out of sheer curiosity, I just tried it, so did the daughter and Mrs. Etrain. Results:

    Me: not bad, perhaps not something I would crave, but better than I thought
    Daughter: pretty good, she could do this again
    Mrs. Etrain: Why would you do this to me??! This is gross!
