Desert Island

August 22nd, 2008  |  Published in miscellany

I mentioned a desert island in yesterday’s post on the Ginger Grant, and it appears I’m not the only one who had deserted tropical beaches on my brain. Rick at Kaiser Penguin posed a very interesting question: which ten bottles would you choose to be marooned with?

This is a very similar iteration of the long-distance driving game we music nerds like to play, so I’ve decided to fold them into one post—my “when I hit the Lotto and move to a small uncharted island” must-have lists. Well, if I won the Lotto and chartered a very small plane to get me to said island and FedEx wouldn’t ship all my assorted crap. You get the idea.

Desert Island Liquors

  • Tanqueray No. 10 gin
  • Rittenhouse Bonded rye
  • St. George Absinthe Verte
  • Corralejo Reposado tequila
  • Aberlour a’bunadh scotch
  • Cruzan white rum
  • Lemon Hart demerara
  • Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
  • Vya dry vermouth
  • Veuve Clicquot champagne

Desert Island Albums

  • Neko Case – Furnace Room Lullaby
  • Ted Leo & the Pharmacists – Shake the Sheets
  • Whiskeytown – Strangers Almanac
  • Sugar – Copper Blue
  • Nick Lowe – Jesus of Cool
  • John Prine – John Prine
  • The Promise Ring – Nothing Feels Good
  • The Smiths – The Queen is Dead
  • Iron & Wine – The Creek Drank the Cradle
  • Old 97′s – Too Far to Care

Of course, I say all this assuming that I will be able to have or produce all the bitters and assorted homemade liqueurs and syrups I want on said island. And both lists will probably be entirely different tomorrow in my head, but I promise not to sneak in and change them.
