Now moving on to side dishes.
  • Brandy and Cheese!
Quote:
Bourbon, brandy, rum, gin, tequila, whiskey - they’re all
considered hard alcohol (and all can lead to a doozy of a hangover if
you over-imbibe). Hard alcohol is liquor that has been distilled rather
than fermented.

So what do you serve with hard alcohol? Cheese, of course!
Quote:
Brandy, a distilled wine, is best served with a strong cheese.
Quote:
a smooth brandy is also fantastic when paired with a strong
cheese, as the cheese enhances the floral flavours of the brandy.
  • Brandy with rich desserts!
Quote:
Brandies are an ideal accompaniment to desserts, where
wine often falls short due to the presence of acids and tannins. A
brandy’s lack of acid and strength of spirit allow it to pair well with
rich desserts, such as ice cream and chocolate mousse.
Quote:
any rich chocolate dessert or strong cheese goes well with a
good quality brandy, served at room temperature.
  • Brandy and pork fillets in honey, or with cured meats
(like salami, Parma ham, and coppa.)
  • Brandy with mushroom dishes.
  • dry brandy with smoked salmon
Quote:
brandy works well with the rich and fatty dish.
  • Brandy with prawn nigiri with Japanese mayonnaise.


  • Brandy with coffee and cake!

Sharing some interesting related facts about Alchohol from internet.
These can be easily googled.

Quote:
Some people can get drunk naturally. Fermentation occurs when enzymes,
typically produced by yeast, convert sugar molecules in grapes or grains into
ethanol. That process can also happen in your digestive system, spiking every 100
ml of blood with 0.01 to 0.03 mg of alcohol. Japanese doctors have observed
patients with “auto-brewery syndrome,” in which high levels of candida yeast in the
intestines churn out so much alcohol that they can cause drunkenness. In other
words, these lucky individuals can get drunk without drinking.
Quote:
There is a cloud of alcohol in the outer space which is enough to make four trillion-trillion drinks.

Alcohol exists in space. The nebulas where stars form abound with hydrogen,
carbon, oxygen, and ?the atomic building blocks of alcohol. Sure enough,
astronomers found vast quantities of ethanol—as much as that in 400 trillion
trillion beers—?in G34.3, an interstellar cloud some 10,000 light-years from Earth.

From An Expert

Ok. Here is the advice :

1. For the totally uninitiated, start with "Shandy". This is a very tasty beer cocktail with 25% beer and 75% any lemon drink like Limca/Sprite/7up. Both ingredients should be chilled. Will never give you a kick but will help you get started. Incidentally this is most recommended for females. Go up with the beer% to 50:50 later. Still Yummy.

2. For the second graders go for chilled beer. Beer HAS to be chilled to be enjoyed. Warm beer is worse than horse piss. (Never tried horse piss though). Beer goes down really well with some spicy/salted short eats. My advise is to always have something to eat while drinking IF you want to enjoy your drink. If you drink to become drunk or puke, don't eat.

3. Moving on to harder alcohols. The most popular in India is whiskey for the poor and Scotch for the rich. Scotch is also whiskey but made necessarily in Scotland. Also it is made under very finicky and strict conditions in order to be labelled a "Scotch". Loosely speaking one can be substituted for the other. There was some discussion earlier in the thread about Indian whiskey being derived from molasses and Scotch from Grapes etc. It is a long story and not the focus here. So back to drinking .... . The best way to have whiskey/Scotch is to pour a small (30ml) or a large (60ml) or a Patiala (120ml) in a glass. Add double quantity of soda/water. Add 4-5 ice cubes. This is the most popular and sophisticated way to enjoy your drink. Don't dilute the drink with too much soda/water. That is only for hard drinkers. The taste should come through.

4. The next most popular drink now-a-days is Vodka, but only a lunatic will have plain Vodka. It is mostly used in Cocktails. Vodka itself has no colour and no taste. That is the reason for popularity in cocktails. It acquires the given colour and taste. The most popular 2 cocktails are 1) Screwdriver and 2) Bloody Mary.
For a screwdriver pour 45 ml Vodka in a 200 ml glass, add 4-5 ice cubes and top up with orange juice (Tropicana is best).
The Bloody Mary has a lot of ingredients and cannot be easily made at home unless you have the ready mix. Go to a bar and enjoy this.

5. For the ladies - the most socially accepted drink is "Gin". Gin has two very important properties. One - it does not give a foul "alcohol" smell to the mouth and Two - it does not give a hangover next morning. For these two reasons it is now also a Man's drink. Gin is generally had either with Lime Juice Cordial or Tonic Water. Exceptionally good with a little amount of both.

Well ... there is plenty more, but depends on you guys whether this is interesting or boring. Lemme know.

At home - Potato chips/wafers, salted biscuits, salted and roasted cashew nuts (best) or salted and roasted almonds, peanuts, pistachio's, papad or any namkeen.

In a restaurant - any tandoori item (heavy), Manchurian item (heavy), masala peanuts (light), salted and roasted dry fruits (heavy on pocket), masala papad, ordinary roasted papad etc.

The above would apply generally to all drinks and not limited to beer alone. ENJOY !!
