Party Hearty Marty!

Andina:

Peru has successfully promoted its national drink “Pisco Sour” during the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders’ Summit, Peru’s Environment Minister Antonio Brack said Sunday.He noted that the flagship drink of Peru was well acepted by international guests, including Japan’s Prime Minister, Taro Aso.
“Pisco Sour has been the “star” of the APEC Summit, the drink was served in several meetings at the Government Palace and the APEC Summit venue,” he told CPN Radio.
 
“We have achieved to place our products including pisco on international markets, but also kiwicha, sweet potatoes and traditional Peruvian potatoes”, said Brack.
U.S. President George W. Bush, who quit drinking at 40, was apparently drinking a Peruvian cocktail during a meeting on Saturday.

What is a “Pisco Sour” you ask?

The ingredients:

2 oz pisco brandy
1 oz lime juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
1/2 egg white
1 dash Angostura® bitters

The results? The sure seem to be enjoying themselves..

On Bush and his alcoholism: Bush: “I doubt I’d be standing here if I hadn’t quit drinking whiskey”

Or read this by Dr. Justin Frank (author of “Bush on the Couch”): Belive and Blame

I guess this no longer applies… Unless of course brandy is okay to drink when you’re an alcoholic…

For this “dry drunk” president, he doesn’t appear to be so “dry” any more..
What will this mean for the last two months of his presidency? Surely nothing good..

  1. Bush: “I doubt I’d be standing here if I hadn’t quit drinking whiskey”

    Okay, so he quit drinking whiskey. What other alcoholic beverages has he claimed to quit drinking? None?

    That is not the comment of a person who has given up all forms of alcohol. That is someone trying to fool you into thinking he has, because he claims he gave up whiskey (though he is known for enjoying his beer, and many alcoholics do not count beer as “alcohol”.)

    I say he’s still a wet drunk.
    (I have read reports that he “has embraced his old friend Jim Beam” again.)
