Here here, we'll have no defaming of our beloved hammer. 15 posts? Welcome, and it looks like you're buying.


I bought ages ago, but will gladly spread the boozy love again. I'm having ouzo, want some?

But really, I drink wine for the taste (to begin with anyway) and voddy to get drunk. Mixing them seems... wrong.


Thank you for your kind gesture. Sambuca and tonic, with a lime wedge if you please (its only 10a.m. here).


Ouzo's poor cousin and tonic with a lime wedge for the gentleman it is, then ;) It's... well, it's time for another drink here.

Well, but if you have shitty wine, this is the way of using it.

You know, I actually shuddered at the idea of having shitty wine...

Will keep that in mind.

I thought that for about a year. Then I decided to bite the bullet one crazy night. It's been love ever since.

Ditto. I couldn't determine if I was being put on. Then, one dark and stormy night, I followed the formula of seven ounces of vodka and five ounces of red wine. Tasty drink, but with an extraordinarily high f-you-up quotient. I cannot believe anyone could remain conscious to drink a second one.

You think you're just drinking a glass of wine...

Well not if those are the quantities!!!

I make mine small-- about 2 oz. wine to 2 oz. Mono. In a champagne flute. They're perfect. I've gotten up to four at a sitting. Usually with a white wine back.

jesus christ

I'm actually afraid to try a BH
since wine is alREADY my passport to blackout island in any amount (as well as the lesser known Vomit Penninsuala and the covetted stopover at Passout International Air.) and vodka causes me to gag from the smell, I'm actually afraid I'll try it and love it

because i KNOW it'd give me the worst hangover in the history of my hangovers. my two arch enemies in one glass...together...

can 2 wrongs possibly make an oh so right?

I've NEVER gotten a hangover from the brutals. At worst I am still drunk the next day. Usually in a happy way.

But, if you totally cannot stand vodka, it may not be for you. Although it doesn't exactly smell or taste of vodka in the wine.

You sure sound like my kinda guy though!!!

Where's MeanOldLady? She was thinking about trying her first Brutal Hammer this weekend. I did warn her to lock up her valuables and prepare a first aid kit.

Anybody who hasn't tried it, should. Even if you feel you don't want to risk wine, it's well worth the risk. Plus, I really want to hear virgin reports because, well it's funny. Brutal Hammers are a phone losing, bruise creating bullet train to Blackoutville.

your kinda guy is either permanently wearing the porcelien hat, or billigerently swearing at the Valet's in front of an upscale downtown hotel to get his god damn JagUar (i don't own a car. Actually, come to think, I'm not sure they were even Valet's....)

The first time I tried it was a Friday afternoon when the wife was out of town. Next thing I know I wake up 5 am Monday morning on the Floor with the TV blaring. I spent that Monday at work swollen and bruised, with drool coming down my mouth. My entire goal was to stay upright that day and keep my head from hitting the desk. Tuesday wasn't much better. Good times, good times.
