I did what you said and what I read off Brad's Twitter:
1) Get a rocks glass.
2) Pour 1.5oz of Eagle Rare.
3) Drop in one ice cube.
4) Don't let the booze chill too much and don't let the ice melt too much.
5) Sip the Eagle.
I was doing okay, though the back of my tongue pressed up against the back of my throat the whole time; fighting the gag reflex. I got down to the last of the drink and figured that because the ice cube watered down the booze I can drink the rest of it in one fowl swoop. I did and threw up. A piece of corn from the previous night shot up into my mouth to let me know that the Eagle Rare was coming. Thankfully, it didn't burn or give me that gritty teeth feel. As I heard, it really was smooth.
God, Ryan! How did you manage to do that?! I love you, and though I will not drink Eagle Rare anymore I will look up at the bottle and think of you as I grab the Southern Comfort.
