Wow, some good choices on the Yuengling, the Old Style and the IPA lover. To Frugality of Apathy, aren't all wheat homebrews technically hefeweizens? I thought they were just unfiltered wheat beers with the yeast still in it, I do not know the specifics of it, and don't know how to filter the yeast even if I wanted to.

No mention of Amaretto / Bacardi 151 in beer, tastes just like Dr. Pepper, but white Russians are always a very solid choice. Killian's is probably the best mass produced beer, and the best mass produced light beer has to go to Bud Light for me. Ummmm, Heineken, tequila, vodka and Corona's all have special places on my most-overrated list, as I am definitely more in favor with some Sam Adams (the seasonal white Ale is amazing), some Leinenkugel's, Beck's, Guinness as well as scotch or bourbon whisky and rum.

Oh, that Bacardi 151 brings back some memories: that is what we used to plug the watermelons back in the day. If you've ever tried to clean that out of a fridge...

About the Killian's, Citric Acid, have you tried Smithwicks? We bought tons of it for St. Pat's this year and I really liked it a lot. Good mass market beer for the Irish hordes that descend on us for the holiday. We also serve Irish Car bombs--irish whiskey and Guinness, a lethal and very messy drink!

Sarah, messy because it is sticky when spilled, or messy because the imbibers tend to get sh-tfaced and puke? This former toilet hugger wants to know.

Ha, Is there a choice for all of the above!
Actually, I don't think we had any hurlers this year (not through lack of trying on everyone's part), but actually it is the endless numbers of cups with congealed, foamy Guiness in them (the drink curdles if you don't gulp it all at once-disgusting) that I had to pick up the next morning, and the resultant spills. One lesson, never bring out the green food coloring, it is really gross!
"Former" toilet hugger you say? We can fix that, the next party is March 14th...

Irish Car Bombs are a definite go... Bailey's Irish Cream plus Jameson's plus Smithwick's or Guinness is actually what I have seen most of all. Yes, I have tried Smithwick's and definitely appreciate the red irish beers the most out of any single beer type. Although those IPAs and other wheat beers do grow on you...

EGAD! Thanks CitricAcid, I forgot the crucial third ingredient--the Bailey's Irish Cream! You can tell DH is the bartender! I'm in there cooking up mounds of potatoes to soak up all that alcohol! And I don't touch them, but it is because I don't like Guinness.

You could do the Irish Car bombs using any type of Stout, even though it won't always be Irish. But, if you don't like Guinness, chances are you don't like much Stout anyway. Sticking with the Irish theme, I'm sure the Irish Cream would go well with Smithwick's or Killian's in a bomb, but what do I know.

By the way, it's not Bourbon Whiskey, it's just 'Bourbon'!

A glass or two of wine per day.

Do have fond memories of Southern Comfort and other serious stuff.

Friday after work in winter in Bettendorf IA: hot coffee with a slug of Southern Comfort or Amaretto.

Beer almost daily (Bud Light, Amstel Light, Fat Tire, Corona, Heineken) and wine maybe once a week.

I like beer, red wine, gin (tom collins), rum, Bailey's and I particularly like Campari. Margaritas are good but give me horrible heartburns.

Tequila Jell-O shots got me in trouble with the Navy. Red Headed Sluts left me with obscene things painted on my face the next morning. A bottle of Yellow Tail left me in an awkward situation one night. Rum & Coke has never steered me wrong though. Good old Bacardi, I'll be celebrating with a bottle once I'm out.
