Grey Goose isn't overrated, it's just not the best vodka in that price range.

We used to wine and dine Boeing management almost every month, and the dinners usually ended with a head-to-head taste test of one booze or another. When it came to vodkas, Belvedere beat Grey Goose about nine times out of ten, and all the Grey Goose drinkers admitted they had been wrong.

I've always been a vodka rocks guy...from about 1966. Stoly came on the market around 1973....I still drink bar vodka when we go out, but keep Stoly in the freezer at home. I've always liked the taste of Stoly, and I've tried them all. Personal taste.

I like Don Julio tequila. Anejo with a slice of orange.

Corn Beef
Cabbage
Red taters
Red Onion
Carrots


Set it for 6-8 hours (put the cabbage in for the last 2 hours).

Serve w/ mustard and sprinkle a tad of vinegar over the meat

Few Guinness to wash it all down!!

....and don't get me started on the Cornbeef sando I will have tomorrow (a whole new thread topic)

BIG DAY
That's very similar to the recipe I use, but I recently found a way to improve on it: If you leave out the corned beef, cabbage, red taters, red onion and carrots, there's room for a couple more Guinness.

I had to give up on CB&C. The FB just doesn't understand the concept. I tried last year but by the time she was done adding a touch of this and a touch of that, it came out more like Mousaka. And she chopped up the cabbage and added bacon and sauerkraut. Both were really good, but not really what I had in mind.
Hurts so good

I normally will take a tums before and after

Why would anyone add sauerkraut to cabbage? Maybe just suggest she julienne the cabbage and add pickle juice --:--

Buc... Never put yellow mustard on corned beef. That's like using ketchup on New York steak. Horseradish!

Gotta keep it a little "white trashy", Wiles.
The wife put the mustard there anyway....I normally dip mine in vinegar.

...and Paul please notice the wine, Firefly Ridge. I know you appreciate a good wine deal. Vons has this wine on sale for $5.99, regular price is $15.99 (so if you don't have a calculator handy that is a $10 savings). Very good wine.

Nah. Completely different flavor. Connoisseurs of fine sauerkraut [-( can tell the difference. It's actually very good that way.

Seeing it's St. Patty's Day, I just might splurge...and to Wiley...you don't know what you're talking about..Ba-Tampte Deli mustard is the only thing that goes on corned beef and pastrami. Horseradish is for bloody Marys.

I'm wearing my Celtic PRIDE T with seventeen little lepracauns with those 17 title dates under each. Hope it works OK when I hit Buffalo Wild Wings in Lake Forest in a couple hours....it's always fun to piss off the Kaptain Kreme wannabe tough guys.

I love a good sauerkraut, I just haven't had it in a long time (the little condiment packages at Sam's Club don't count)

Don't really care for Tequila at all. Even the expensive stuff.

My personal favorite is Bushmill's neat. No need to mess with perfection.

I would never wear Celtic green, dispite my Irish heritage.

Anejo tequila is the ONLY dark liquor I can get down....I'm strictly a vodka guy...except for any kind of Don Julio...but only a very few times each year. My bro-in-law used to be the SW manager for Seagrams...before they self-destructed. He kept the family stocked with top shelf bottles of many brands. Martel's Five Star Blue Label Cognac (or something like that) was always a great gift...I believe it sells for more than $100 a fifth....I keep it for special guests...we still have three fifths, and they go back to the mid-80s. It tastes like bad cough medicine to me.

Not everyone can wear green. I work in a office with over 300 people it's pretty funny to see so many people in all different shades of green
