Wine nowadays...

Camped out with a girlfriend in Colorado, brought some Everclear and cranberry juice along. I couldn't drink the stuff but she got DESTROYED! Instead of getting lucky I was holding her up out of the dirt so she could pee. I guess women can pee standing up, too!

Anybody drink Crazy Horse? Only thing I could afford at times when living in Hawaii. We were a cruel bunch. If someone was broke and still wanted to drink, we'd say, "Well, I've got an extra $1.99....that'll get you 64 oz of the crazy horse!" The rest of us would be drinking happily while that person (sometimes me) would be "taking their medicine".

I, too, am currently on the wagon due to being heavily medicated the last couple of weeks. Most recent favorite for both SO and me is Bailey's Irish Cream; "Fluffy" has been caught many times licking the empty glasses but never touches Sonoma County's best cheap red wines.

Most memorable was a concoction made by an otherwise long-ago-forgotten co-worker: "Ziemet's Lab Alcohol Punch." His finishing touch was dry ice and you really had to drink it fast before the paper cup disintegrated.

She sneered at me, but after our tenth or eleventeenth shot, it was me steering her from walking into walls and people rather than the other way around.

Another lesson I learned from a work gathering (a hard drinking lot we were) was never drink the cheap vodka. I'm not sure how much Popov's* I drank that night (enough apparently, according to giggling reports the next day, that I delighted in dancing with every ugly chick in the place and tried to recruit them for "My Harem") but it felt like about ten gallons when it reappeared later. Absolut costs more, but they use a distilling process that weeds out the nasty fusel oils. It's a much sweeter party with Absolut, and in the morning I don't feel like someone buried a hatchet in my head.



* Urban Dictionary: popov
I agree it's worth the extra money for Absolut. Absolute is the only liquer I drink. Domestic beer or Absolut mixed with lemonade or maybe red bull if i'm planning to dance.

Depends on what kind of day it is, and what I'm eating at the time. Hot summer afternoons scream for ice-cold beer (need to replace fluids lost by sweating), but dead-of-winter afternoons whimper for a glass or two of pinot noir. Tacos and beer (Yuengling Black and Tan only, I'm picky), steak and wine, fried chicken and beer, chicken marsala and wine....

Haven't had hard liquor in over 20 years...had a bad experience with something called an Alabama Slammer.

Just wine for me now, although I certainly tried to "Drink Canada Dry". Beer was a favorite but I have to stay gluten-free and gluten free beers are yucky.

Any hard stuff I like too much so I learned to stay away from it.

I love beer! Hot days call for lighter stuff, I have been drinking Amstel and Miller Chill, but I'm really an IPA girl. Rum drinks aren't bad either, but you can't drink them all day. We had something called bourbon slush at the Regatta this weekend: a gallon of Southern Comfort, plus frozen OJ, frozen, lemonade, and some lime juice. Seriously deadly, reminds me of the Ammunition Punch we had for our wedding.

I tried the new Firefly Vodka made here, it is flavored with sweet tea. Kinda girly, but okay. After my experience with Chingghis Khan vodlka in Mongolia, I swear never on my life to drink cheap vodka again. What you said about those fusel oils and the hatchet was true.

My winter drink is 7 and 7, but I have to use a shot glass to measure, otherwise I fall in the creek later.

I drink Bud Light for the part-water/part-beer effect, but prefer to more flavor for pleasure drinking. Dos Equiis Amber, Fat Tire, etc. Whether it's on sale or not is a good indicator...

That's a good tasting beer, and it used to be my beer of choice, but not since I discovered Negra Modelo.

A few years ago DW & I realized the cocktail hour every night was getting out of hand, so we "limited" ourselves to "only" wine Mon-Thurs. Fri-Sun we allow ourselves a couple (a "few", in my case) more potent libations. Myers & OJ in her case, bourbon in mine. Followed by wine w/ dinner. Oh, and one beer w/ popcorn if watching a game.
On the odd special occasion I'll have a Bloody Mary after morning coffee while breakfast is cooking.

Jeez, what a couple of sots!

My recent go-to beer is Yeungling Black & Tan, or Guiness (DW's choice)

I voted Rum but I like coffee liquors like tia maria just as much. Add vodka to the coffee liquor and you get my favourite mixed drink....Black Russian. Jack Damiels, Yukon Jack and Southern Comfort are in there somewhere as well. Probably five or six drinks a week.
