Liquor commercial with Retire Early theme

I just saw a commercial on TV for Patron tequila that seemed to promote ER.*

I found a link where you can watch the commercial here:

http://nytimes.feedroom.com/?fr_stor...97a00de9c9e1a0

The NYT describes the commercial thusly:

[The] spot shows a woman lying by a swimming pool, while her male companion gazes over the ocean. A bubble over the woman’s head reads “Retire early,” while a bubble over the man’s head carries a long list of words that changes rapidly, “Yacht, Italian sports car, ski cabin, lake house, season tickets, chopper, race horse.”

I can still taste that stuff 25 years later...

I like her thinking.

Hey all I know is two things:

1. ER is the best.

2. Patron is some great hooch.

Absolutely true. Today marked seven weeks of ER and it's hard to believe anything less than 100% ER could make life worth living. I just love it!

Are you sure you have that recipe correct? - Much too heavy on the Vermouth for a Manhattan? And why aren't you using sweet Vermouth?

This is the standard recipe

Ingredients
Scale ingredients to servings

2 oz Southern Comfort® liqueur
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
3 dashes bitters


But much too sweet for me as I prefer Scotch Manhattans (Rob Roy's). :P

Yep, that's how I like them.* Sweet vermouth plus SC = too sweet.*

I have personally trained seventeen northern Wisconsin supper clubs to make them this way. It's been a lot of effort, but worth it! Practice, practice, practice. Eventually, they get it right.

Admittedly, DW accuses me of making them nine parts SC and one part dry vermouth at home. And there may be some truth to that........

Foghat was great.* But it was early 1982 so "Burnin' For You" was one of BOC's top songs and they were riding high.* This was back when you had to have front-row seats if you wanted to see the guitar work so I missed out on that.* I wouldn't be caught dead wearing hearing protection back then and I remember being functionally deaf for about two days.

Our kid agrees that if you have to listen to BOC with your parents then you might as well enjoy Burnin' For You.

But I wouldn't advise watching BOC perform "Godzilla" while you're coping with a double-digit BAC...

Yes, a Marascino cherry is nice. Hmmmmmm....... It's just after 1:00 PM here in the midwest. But it's five o'clock somewhere. Think I'll go try the standard recipe, my recipe, my modified recipe, with a cherry, without a cherry, and a few other variations. I'll report back later........ :

I bet the next morning you were "fearing the reaper"!

Three weekends ago, me and another buddy, Dad of KC who lives up the street and also has DS, started with beer, went to Margaritas, did shots of tequila till it was gone, did shots of Goldshlager till it was gone, did shots of meyers rum till it was gone, and started doing shots of SoCo, then stumbled in from the patio and proceeded to worship the porcelain god. Poor SoCo, it got the blame for that incident!
