Shawn Carney of Stull on the Horse Feather

Empty Glass is a weekly post devoted to furthering the alcoholic rock star image and mythos. That's right, kids -- drinking has no negative side effects and makes you look cool, to boot.

Shawn Carney plays guitar and sings in Lawrence's Stull. In addition to being totally fantastic, melt-your-face doom metal, the band has one of my favorite band shirts of the past few years. On the front: a woodcut of a man being vivisected. On the back: "Denounce the Holy Spirit." Thus, it follows that a member of band this heavy should know something about drinking.

My favorite drink is a Horse Feather, now a Replay Lounge staple. It's a mix of Old Overholdt rye whiskey, ginger ale, a dash of bitters, and a twist of lime. I prefer it as a double in rocks glass. It has a nice mix of flavor, the whiskey gives it a full body, and the bitters help take the edge off of the whiskey and vice versa. Once you add the ginger ale and lime, the drink has a really crisp taste, and is extremely easy to drink. That and they really just take the edge off after work or a show, especially if Strelow mixed it. That man is some sort of bar wizard.
