Smirnoff Mojito

Yup. Smirnoff now has a range of vodka ‘cocktails’, one of which is Smirnoff Vodka Mojito. It comes in a 700ml bottle, and is a mix of vodka, Triple Sec liqueur, and a dash of mint. A very basic recipe.

I prefer mine with rum.

All set

Since it’s already mixed, firepower is low, like a strong wine, at 15%.

Others in this range are Tuscan Lemonade, Grand Cosmo, and Pomegranate Martini.

Nice ass

For lazy butts, and those who want sumtin that’s convenient, ready to go.  Good for a travel pack i guess.



New looks

Three established brands in Diageo went for a make-over.

As of this month, Smirnoff has altered the bottle to emphasize the vodka’s quality and its heritage as a supplier to Russia’s Imperial Court.

Smirnoff No.21 (alcohol-by-volume – 40%) and all its flavoured varieties will have the new look. Diageo has changed the vodka brand’s main icon from a spike to a “Regal Eagle”, which is accompanied on the bottle by a reference to Smirnoff’s supply contract with the Russian Tsars. It displays signatures of Smirnoff alongside the featured crown.

Pyotr Smirnov founded his vodka distillery in Moscow in the 1860s, pioneering charcoal filtration in the 1870s, and becoming the first to utilize newspaper ads to stifle anti-vodka sermons, capturing two-thirds of the Moscow market by 1886. Propaganda ads eh? His brand was reportedly the Tsar’s favorite. When he died, he was succeeded by his third son Vladimir Smirnov, under whom the company flourished.

Its now the world’s best-selling liquor.

As for Tanqueray (ABV 47.3%), the look is more like a cocktail shaker now. The new bottle is taller and more tapered than the original ‘fire-hydrant’ shape, and it also features elements of the brand’s heritage such as the company’s signature and an embossed Tanqueray family crest on the glass. The bottle’s labels have also been changed to give it a more contemporary look. It’s been around for a few months tho.

Tanqueray London Dry Gin was initially distilled in 1830 by Charles Tanqueray in London. Gin is  made through double-distillation of a neutral grain spirit with botanicals added during the second distillation. Its today produced in Scotland. Did u know they had a Tanqueray Malacca Gin?? Discontinued in ’04. Dammit.

The brand recently celebrated 200 years since Charles Tanqueray  was born. Where was da party?? London? How come i wasnt invited??

After 30 years, Baileys (ABV 17%) changed the look some time ago. Am sure u would have noticed the smoother, skinnier looking bottle.

Flavours available are Original, Creme Caramel, Mint, Coffee, Hazelnut and Biscotti. It’s the world’s best-selling liqueur.

Bailey’s (Ireland) starts life in happy Irish cows, all 40,000 of them. They’re happy coz they aint kept in a pen, but get out to graze nine months a year. Their milk is added to Irish whisky within hours, followed by cocoa nibs, vanilla pods, caramel and sugar.

Goes real nice as a dessert, poured generously over vanilla ice-cream.


Thanks buddy!


Homey don’t play dat, not anymore

Homey da house dog has quit drinking. Dumbass. Not like he has to drive, or get pregnant or anything.

Sure he's cute, but he's a killa

Sure he's cute, but he's a killaa

If you’re gonna put on weight you dawg, better the booze do it rather than food man. At least booze gets u high.

I recall him downing cocktails, beer and get this – my old man’s 15-year-old Grants Scotch Whisky – on da rocks. Now he turns his head away from the stuff. Wastage or wat?

Maybe he’s become religious. Or maybe he’s found something better, like fermenting his own piss in the lawn somewhere.

Is there sumtin brewin in there?

Mmmmm. Fer – men – ted – piss….

Gimme some of dat boy!

Either way, the socially anti-social dawg still gets a major house party every year. That’s eight bashes so far; KFC, gifts n all. And I felt pissed once when more people turned up for his goddam birthday party than mine. Apa ni?! Ridiculous. Need to reduce his popularity.

In case u think he’s such a “cutieeee!” n all dat crap, the lil’ fucker has murdered several innocent birds and squirrels, while stone-cold sober. (I think u just lost 20% of your fan base Homes.).

He hopes to kill a cat soon. (Just gained back another 40% fans.)

Got my eye on u

Anyway, Homey’s latest birthday party (titled Homey Play Dat, Again) went well. This time he didn’t hump any chicks. But neither did I. Crowd count was about 20.

Warmin up

Normally more chicks than guys of course, coz Homey’s like dat. *Player!* Not this time tho. Too bad.

Alcohol highlight for the night was Smirnoff Watermelon. Not a huge fan of flavoured vodkas cos u can’t be as creative when cocktailing, but this tembikai shit is an awesome drink! Just add 7-Up. And loads of ice to kill some of the sweetness. The other great flavoured Smirnoff is Green Apple. That was popular at our last house party a few weeks back (Housemate Henry’s birthday bash.). Also requires lotsa ice.


My mama always says fruits r good for u


[Speaking of ice, dont it suck when parties run out of ice?? Jeez, just buy 10 dam bags next time. Ice is CHEAP. As I always say, “You can never have too much ice!’ And of course a large ice box is a standard requirement for drinkers.]

There was also tuak which we bought from Sarawak over the last couple of years, Vintage 2007 and 2008. Great stuff. Chicks luved it. [BTW will post soon about a friend of mine who brews da shit at her home. And supplies me. Nice.]

Tropical fruits really mix well with liquor. Would love to brew a rambutan wine. Next project.

BTW except for his housemates, Homes only adds chicks on Facebook, so piss off guys.
