Tonight, in honor of the approaching date on the calendar, I am having perfectly seasoned venison tenderloin medallions(cooked properly in a cast iron pan of course), with just a touch of Elijah Craig 12 year old added for a little extra flavor, with homemade twice baked beans on the side, along with a fresh salad and baked squash that came from this Americans garden.  
With a little more Elijah Craig 12 yr. old to help wash it all down of course. ;)  God bless Kentucky limestone.


I'm enjoying this meal while watching a documentary titled A More Perfect Union, America Becomes a Nation .

This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    Harm, why mess up prefect(ly good) Irish whiskey by mixing it? Middleton's, in a rocks glass to allow the breath of the bouquet, and good smoke, some lively conversation or just some favorite music. Don't get no better.

    Storyteller - a carbomb is the only way to successfully navigate Guiness Stout without already being inebreiated.   ;D  I love Guiness but stout is another story. 

    My favorite is to freeze an 8 ball glass first and then fill it with two fingers of whiskey.  The perfect drink to relax with.

    In Mexico this is fair game.  Really.

    This "big brew" is as local as I'll get---cerveza from Sinaloa.



    Of course, you gotta have that with food.

    Appetizer, consists of queso fundido.


    And of course, a tenderloin carne asada cut.  This cut is called cabreria, and it's unique to the state of Sinaloa.


    I have my steak done medium.  Don't like the rare too often...

    Pacifico is to Corona pretty much as Bud Light is to Coors Light.  I think Pacifico is sightly better than Corona (possibly due to the darker bottle glass).

    I like Pacifico for hanging by the pool.

    Interesting.  I prefer Tecate in a can over Corona...but I'm not exactly the most colorful crayon in the box.

    I agree with T.  Pacifico is better than Corona (though they're from the same company--Cerveceria Modelo SA de CV).  This company also makes Modelo, and Negra Modelo.  While in Mexico, I also took the liberty to try Negra Modelo.  It was a good standard dark lager.

    This is their line up:




    The other big Mexican company is Cerveceria Cuauthemoc SA de CV.  They sell Tecate, Dos Equis, Indio, Sol, Carta Blanca, etc.




    Interestingly enough, both of these companies have [seemingly] big buildings in my city.  I know Cuauthemocv has a factory near my aunt's house, because we drive by it all the time (when I'm there).  And I do recall Modelo to have some type of distribution center in downtown Culiacan; lots of trucks and stuff. 

    Beer is easily available, and I've seen Caguamas and Ballenas sell cheaper than a 2liter bottle of Mex Coke.  You can buy it almost anywhere.  In Mexico, they have these stores called "Oxxos" which are similar to 7-11.  They all have beer available.  And then there are the stores that either sell Cuathemoc or Modelo products.  It seems that  the big companies franchise out these little stores.  At these, you can buy in bulk for a party.  Tecate Light seems to  be the party swill of choice there.  You can get an 8 pack for less than $5, IIRC.

    Where I come from, right now (at the time of this post) given that it's summer in July, it's probably like 96 degrees with 29% humidity.

    Right now, it's actually 93 F with 52% humidity and clear skies.

    The point is, it's fricking hot--like Phoenix but it feels like you are in a swamp, even though there aren't any. 
    :panic

    Beer has this refreshing property.  So in my opinion, Cold Ones are as essential as Air conditioning in Sinaloa.

    Oooo...  I can agree with that.  For a Mexican beer, Nerga Modelo is pretty good.  About on par with Dos Equis Amber, but a bit thicker.

    XX Amber is one of the beers that my mother has let me try as well.  It's better than the one in the green bottle.  Excellent with tacos.

    I'll drink a lot of things, but I have my regular standbys...

    Beer:
    Anything brewed by Unibroue; La Fin du Monde and Maudite are my favorites. The label art rocks pretty hard too. It's hard to find, so I have Sam Adam's Summer Ale and Blackberry Witbier in the fridge right now.

    Liquor:
    Islay Scotches, Laphroaig being my first choice. Woodford Reserve bourbon.
