9 Steps To Becoming A Legit Whiskey Drinker

Narrated by Ron Swanson and this Quora thread.


Can you tell the difference between Scotch, Bourbon, Whiskey and a punch in the mouth?


Can you tell the difference between Scotch, Bourbon, Whiskey and a punch in the mouth?


If not, this Quora user has the perfect steps to becoming an expert.

You both need room to breathe.


You both need room to breathe.


Use an old fashioned glass. The glass is as wide as it is tall, and give the whiskey lots of air. It also lets you get your nose in the glass so you can smell all the amazing stuff happening in there.


NBC


Keep things one-on-one.


Keep things one-on-one.


If you really want to learn to detect different flavors in your whiskey, don't mix it with sodas like Coke or Sprite because the sugar and other flavors in the soda will overwhelm the flavor of the whiskey.


NBC


Friends are nice in small doses.


Friends are nice in small doses.


Water is whiskey's best friend...in small amounts. If you've got cask-strength whiskey in a glass, it's going to burn you. Splash a little water in there and you'll be amazed at how much flavor opens up. If you're just starting out, try mixing 3/4 whiskey to 1/4 water in your glass. This will take the edge off the alcohol burn and allow you to taste the other flavors. Carbonated water is a whole other experience because the bubbles change how the flavors reach you, enhancing some and muting others. (If you're used to drinking your booze with Coke, try it with fizzy water sometime.)

Here's What Happens When You Ask Marcus Samuelsson To Make You Breakfast

In our new series BuzzFeed Breakfast, we invite a chef to hang out and cook stuff. Then we show you how to recreate what he or she did.



Design by Chris Ritter / BuzzFeed. Photos by Lauren Zaser / BuzzFeed


Yes, Marcus Samuelsson is a James Beard award-winning chef with a successful Manhattan restaurant and recurring TV gigs on shows like Chopped and The Taste . He was also the youngest chef ever, at 24, to receive three stars from the New York Times, which means he knows how to cook seriously high-end, fancy food.


His new cookbook isn't about fancy food, though. Marcus Off Duty is a guide to straightforward but delicious home cooking. "Home cooking is now where many of my restaurant dishes start," Samuelsson wrote in the book's intro. "I ask my cooks what they make at home and how they make it." The recipes are all about using familiar ingredients in creative ways.


Samuelsson is especially adamant about using leftovers to create new (often even more delicious) dishes the next day. He did just that when he came to the BuzzFeed test kitchen recently to cook a dish for our new BuzzFeed Breakfast series, whipping up a frittata with leftover spaghetti and an impromptu skillet of eggs cooked in leftover tomato sauce. "Cooking for me is like jazz," he wrote in his book. "You start with a solid base and add riffs and beats as you feel the need." The recipe shown below is just that — a base. Once you understand the basic steps, you can use them as a framework to turn any combination of leftover pasta, meat and sauce into a hearty breakfast the next morning.


The first step in making a leftover pasta frittata is figuring out what kind of leftovers you're working with. Here's what we had:

Two kinds of spaghetti, tomato sauce, Parmesan cheese, spinach, and some cornbread. In the fridge we also had garlic, thyme, eggs, milk, sour cream, and some cooked bacon.


Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet along with two halved cloves of garlic and two sprigs of thyme. When the oil is hot but not sizzling, add about 2 cups of spinach.

14. Checking your entirely full voicemail inbox.

15. Having to pee in Midtown Manhattan.
