Rick at Kaiser Penguin wants to know what folks fallback drinks are when you end up at a bar where the bartending skills don’t extend beyond knowing to pour a wicked strong rum and coke or a really tall Long Island Iced Tea. Good question and one that I actually get asked a lot by friends who find out I’m into craft cocktails. In short, my fallback plan, pretty much in this order is:
- Irish whiskey on the rocks
- Bourbon and Ginger Ale or Vodka-Soda
This is pretty much what I drank before I discovered good cocktails and I can fall back to it whenever the situation requires it.
How about you? What do you drink at a dive bar?
