How to Look Awesome Drinking Whiskey | No, You Don't Have to Wear a Kilt
First of all, we want to give a nod to being adventuresome. You should explore the entire range of whiskey. Try new flavors, new temperatures, step way way out of your comfort zone.
But…that’s not how to look awesome.
Looking awesome drinking whiskey is not about trying something new, it’s about knowing where you’ve been. So you can be yourself. Like Curly in City Slickers. I mean, was that guy comfortable being himself or what? No coincidence he was played by Jack Palance, who could drink spirits made of cat piss poured over small pebbles and he’d look so cool you’d want a glass for yourself.
Looking awesome is about being true to yourself or in character, so to speak. So, who are you?
When you next thirst for whiskey, ask yourself, am I:
- Like the title character in the movie Shane? Order two shots, toss one on the bad guy’s shirt, the other in his face, then clock him in the jaw.
- Like Ron Burgandy? Three fingers of Scotch with a little bit of pepper and some cheese.
- Like Eastwood in High Plains Drifter? Saunter in and ask for “Bear. And a bottle.”
Basically, there are no hard fast rules. Except one. Know what you like. Know how you like it. And ask for it.
So, if a kilt’s your thing, wear the kilt. As Jack Palance would say, “Confidence is so sexy. Don’t you think?”
