You guys. It’s ZANE LAMPREY!!!
That’s me screaming and freaking out that I got Zane Lamprey to answer my stupid questions. I’ve been a fan of Zane’s ever since a friend told me about his TV show, Three Sheets, 4 years ago. It’s one travel adventure drunkfest of a good time and you actually LEARN something too. That show is sadly finito, but he’s got a new show called Drinking Made Easy on HDNet where he is back to his old hilarious drinking ways criss-crossing the country. The show has also extended to a weekly podcast of the same name, so there are lots of options to have a little Zane in your life.
Name: Zane Lamprey // Hometown: Syracuse, NY // Current location: Los Angeles
Favorite Winter beverage: I like a hearty beer when the temperature dips. Being able to sip on a nice stout by a fire almost makes me look forward to the snowy months… Almost.
Favorite cocktail or spirit: I recently had to actually make that choice. I’m coming out with a rum in the next few months. Last year I had to pick the path to go down, whether it be with vodka, whiskey, rum, tequila, gin, beer, wine, or some other libation. I chose rum. I love rum drinks. They remind me of the trips that I’ve taken to tropical islands… Hold on, I’m going to go make myself a mojito.
Favorite place to grab a drink: I just mixed myself up a drink at my home bar. There’s nothing like coming home– especially when you have a bar stocked like mine. I love going out to new places. I love traveling and drinking in foreign lands… But there’s nothing as relaxing as having a drink where my bed is.
Favorite toast: Melba. Oh, not that kind of toast. Oh, that’s easy! “Sláinte bradán bod mor agus bás in Éirinn!” It translates as “Health of the salmon, a big penis, and a death in Ireland.”
Favorite post-dinner drink: Hmm… I don’t mind a nice cordial. I like anything you can mix with coffee… But I take it without the coffee.
