mixed drink would have to be a dirty vodka martini with lots of olive juice, olives and a splash of MOSCATO wine....Brew, so many to choose from but I gotta say GUINNESS EXTRA STOUT.......plenty of em....cold, warm whatever.  WINE........muscatel, zeller schwartz cat, anything I guess....I must be a lush...but it is fun.

  • I should mention now that my favorite STRAIGHT booze would have to be a good sour mash bourbon....I love Henry Mckenna, Old Crow, Jim Beam....not a big fan of Jack Daniels, too rough. I guess I do like my booze. But it keeps me outta prison for my likes instead of in older hippy days....nuff said i shall invoke the 5th amendment on that.

  • Recently got turned on to gin and tonics and I'm pretty happy with that. I do like to try house special mixed drinks when out and about. 
  • I also like my version of homemade DRAMBUIE and my infamous Pepper flavored Vodka,,,For the  Drambuie I take dark rum, (McCormicks, distilled in Weston MO, so it is cheaper ) and add some cinnamon a bit mind ya, and some Nutmeg and some sugar, stir it about and voila....cheap guy drambuie. for the pepper flavored vodka, just add some hot peppers of your choice to some cheap vodka and you have it. A tip here for the non alcoholic types like myself who are boozers pretty much.....If you buy the fancy boy expensive vodkas...dont bother. you can take a cheap one and pour it into a britta pitcher and do that a few times and the filter will make it every bit as good as the expensive grey goose etc.
  • My summer brew is apple juice, plus Cezanne Belgian yeast, plus about a week fermenting before bottling, bottle, wait 7 days, and plunge bottles into 190 degree water for exactly ten minutes. This yields a store able (heat pasteurized) bottle of apple cider with lovely Belgian characteristics, fruit, great mouth feel, and tiny bubbles.
  • I'm currenlty supping Marston's Old Empire, after watching England fail miserably in yet another penalty shootout. It's doing it's job lol.

  • right now, evan williams green label bourbon. only $15 a litre. suppose I'm a cheap SOB
  • My favorite drink is absinthe, but after the day I've had, I'm going to be downing a 40 of Schlitz.
  • Favorites: Highland Park 12 yo, Rye Manhattans, Gin Martinis (Plymouth or Beefeater), Brown Ales, Stouts and Porters, Espresso, Yorkshire tea, Absinthes and Arack, medium Madeiras and Sherries. Tonight will be Sandeman's Royal Corregidor Old Oloroso Sherry.

    Dark and Stormy cocktail. With Gosling's rum and Fentiman's ginger beer.
  • Evan Wiliams. I prefer Jim Bean Rye, but any port in a storm.
  • A very nice chilled ginger, cinnamon, basil tea with a touch of lavender.
  • Like @Scurvy I do like a good gin and tonic, but have to have good gin and plenty of lime.  Otherwise a good highland scotch neat.  NNNIIIIICCCCEEEE
  • A nice glass of Betty Stoggs

  • No booze in my cup right now, it's tea most of the time.

    But, I'm a beer guy and I've got plenty of favorites so I'll just post a few.

    Shiner Bock (New favorite as of this year)
    Newcastle Brown Ale (Always been one of my top 5)
    Grolsch
    Honey Brown
    Guinness
    Landshark (Another new favorite)
    Hofbrau Oktoberfest
    Switchback (A beer that is brewed and sold exclusively in Burlington, VT I believe. Very, very good.)

    There's just a few, I could go on forever.

    Presently, Bush b/c its a cheap beer that does not give me headache. I can always go for Newcastle Brown Ale or Red Stripe, when i can afford it. Recently, i've tuned into something a lot allready know-Drinking beer at anything (edit:below) cellar temperature is pedestrian and foolish.
  • Ardbeg. I've been enjoying a little too much beer lately and could use a calorie break. I do love the Poet Stout by New Holland Brewery.
  • In the morning, Sencha or Irish Breakfast. At night, The Root; this is the liquor that root beer was based on.
  • Right now it's iced coffee.

    My favorite mixed drinks are:

    Snake Bite - Yukon Jack and lime juice
    Rusty Nail - Scotch, Drambuie, Lemon peel.

    When I am in a contemplative mood, I just put some ice into a glass of Ouzo or Romana Sambuca and watch the ouzo effect.
    (The ouzo/sambuca changes from clear to milky white.)
  • @howdydave i also enjoy Snakebites, and these things called pickled mexicans - jose mixed with a splash of dill pickle juice topped off with a dill chip. Big fan of whiskey gingers and damn near all beer.
  • I must try lots of mixed drinks, pretty inexperienced. But I love a good, strong gin and tonic, maybe a martini with lime instead of olive, an old fashioned, Campari and soda, Long Island iced tea. But it's usually strong beer....
  • Tend to just like to slowly sip and savor.... why dilute a good scotch, butbon, rum or vodka???
  • I can appreciate that, but I rarely get the really good stuff, and haven't developed a very discerned palate. I'm happy with a basic mixed drink. But more power to those who appreciate top quality.
  • The only drink for me is bourbon served neat. Haven't had anything else in years.

    my favorite drink is half and half absinthe and brandy. It's got a strange taste it's a nice taste but strange. I add water but not sugar (I don't take absinthe with sugar by the way, and recomend trying it that way). The thing is the buzz is probably the best alcohol buzz very clear but also very sedaite. Oh I almost forgot you want to add the absinthe first dilute it till it's almost cloudy then add the brandy, or at least that is how I do it.
  • White Russian, "the dude" drink

    I'll have to try that, I have some absinthe and brandy lying around

  • Beamish draught, Paddy whiskey, Graham's white port. Mixed drinks can't remember, it's so long time I had one, probably White Russian.
  • @n9inchnails It's not for everyone but it's very good in my opinion. Though it seems to taste better and better as the night goes on.
  • I'm a Bourbon man myself and my favorite is Fighting Cock. It's got a real good kick but is also very smooth. Everyone should try it if you can find it, which isn't terribly easy but it's 100% worth it if you do. I never mix it with anything because its too good. Since its fall I tried some hard ciders recently too. What I would really like to do is get some cider apples next fall and make my own hard cider. Couldn't this year cuz our local orchard had a bug or something and hard a very bad harvest unfortunately. They make a apple cinnamon donut there that is the best donut I've ever had. Great with a hot glass of apple cider.
