Scotchy Scotch, Scotch

In case you’re a rum, vodka, or — shudder — Everclear drinker, allow us to educate you about one of our favorite brands o’ booze. That would be Johnny Walker. This popular Scotch comes in a wondrously inebriating rainbow of labels. Red is what they call a “mixing Scotch,” which means you should drown it with ginger ale before you get your slurp on. Black is the standby fave — decent on the rocks and superlative with whatever mixer you’ve got handy. Gold is great when frozen. Green, served neat, offers a whiff of peat moss as you slug it back. And the best of the bunch is Johnny Walker Blue. It’s a premium blend that uses single malts aged up to 60 years. Each bottle boasts its own serial number and silk-lined box — all for $200. Does your dad deserve anything less for Father’s Day? We think not. So we’re saying all aboard the good ship slur-a-lot for a special Johnny Walker Blue Label yacht event.

Yeah, this sounds like the kind of happening that a habitually wasted grain alcohol drinker shouldn’t be allowed within 20 feet of, but lucky you, the folks at Johnny Walker don’t know any better. To prove that, check this out: The event is free, it’s taking place aboard a 130-foot yacht docked across from the Eden Roc Hotel, and it runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Stop by and try to act classy. Oh, and get Dad an extra-special gift — a custom-engraved bottle of Blue at no additional cost.
Sun., June 8, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., 2008
