Personally, I'd go Russian Standard vodka and Monster.
Always wanted to try it with Russian Gold because it already has ginseng in it to start with. 42 Below is damn good though. Grey Goose doesn't go well as a mixer, but makes for a great cocktail base, or drinking straight.
Sometimes to fight evil, another kind of evil is required. Even so, BJ, I am glad you are back. Geez you made me laugh with that Survivor thread when you said, ever so casually, that the first thing you did on the island was stick up that poster of Judd. I dunno why but it really appealed to me - well done.
