The Best Cheap Booze

With all the doom and gloom found on the pages of KP, I figured this was a highly appropriate feature that will assist in assuaging angst and mitigate against market meltdown.  

If I recall correctly VD was a big fan of Evan Williams. 


Fifteen bucks, it turns out, can buy you some damn decent liquor. Our drinks correspondent brown bags it for the recession, with a recipe and a history lesson to boot.

Now that is a post. Good comeback.
Interesting to debate liquors. I decided a few years ago to devote myself to one liquor, bourbon, and become an "expert." (No reason for bourbon; I actually prefer vodka, but the best ones are French or Russian, so hell to the no; Scotch was too pretentious; so good ol' southern bourbon.) Wound up preferring Blantons for expensive and Bulleit or Buffalo Creek for medium cost. The odd thing was I found I became a snob. I can no longer even do regular Jack straight, and whereas I think Makers and Wild Turkey are comparable if not better than Evan Williams; I ruined my palate with the good stuff. It is for this reason I make sure to grab a Keystone or PBR every once in awhile; I cannot imagine the horror of not being able to enjoy cheap beer.
