Revoke My Moron Card If You Must: The Nutty Buddy
[Bitter Clinger]

Your regularly scheduled Fishing ThreadTM will return anon...

But in the meantime, try this on for size!

Nutty Buddy.jpg
Let me start by saying this, Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey goes against everything I stand for as a bartender and is symbolic of everything wrong with the alcohol industry.

Flavored whiskies are nothing new, Yukon Jack and Southern Comfort have been around since before I was able to have a drink, but at least they had restraint in tainting the flavor of what might ordinarily be a passable whisky given enough barrel time and care.

But since the turn of the 21st century the whisky industry has suffered self-inflicted indignity, with Red Stag, Jack Daniel's Honey, Crown Royal Apple, Rock and Rye, flavored whiskies that don't add slight accents to whiskey, but instead have all the subtlety of a Washington D.C. Womyn's March. And don't even get me started on Crown Royal Maple, it's not even fit for pouring on French Toast, if you were so inclined. And the blasphemy of blasphemies, the armageddon of the cocktail culture that has forever ruined the bar business, is that blend of formaldehyde and cinnamon that is Fireball, rife with the artificial taste of cinnamon flavoring, table sugar and regret.

And so that brings me to Skrewball, which I reluctantly purchased from the liquor store this week, cloaked like Ted Kaczynski hoping to avoid detection by my liquor store clerk out of sheer embarrassment. But I had to get some, because it's trending and I have to stay on top of trends, however insidious they might be. But there arose a problem after my purchase. As much as I wanted to despise it....it actually tasted pretty good. Not good like a 12 Year Redbreast Irish Whiskey. Not good like a bottle of 15 year Chivas.

But it tasted good nonetheless, like the way Krystal burgers taste good at 3 a.m. after a drinking binge. Good like a Reese's Cup stolen from your child's Trick or Treat bag might be.

And so I decided I must create with it. And so I submit to you, fully prepared for ridicule, The Nutty Buddy.

1 oz. Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey
.5 oz. Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur
.5 oz. Homemade Irish Cream (Bailey's will do if you don't make it yourself)
1 Large Scoop of French Vanilla Ice Cream

Blend 3-5 seconds until smooth and garnish with chocolate shaving and crushed peanuts.
