Lessee, in keeping with this thread, I suppose vodka would mix well with it?

This here young'un (at 34 i'm still kind of young) has spent a lot of his life in the company of Jim (not Jack. he's kind of rough). But now at the office (after 5, i swear) prefer sipping Woodford Reserve or Bookers. It keeps those cold Toronto winters at bay.

Never drink anything sticky, green or thick.

Makers Mark on the rocks, the big glass with a twist of lime.

Better yet. Fresh sqeezed lime juice about 1 1/2 oz 1 1/2 oz grand manier and 2 1/2 oz of Cabo Wabo tequila. Put it all in a shaker with a big handfull of ice cubes give it 30 good shakes pour into a tumbler a twist of lime and enjoy. Have 2 and stay put!

I agree with FinanceDude, Tanqueray and Tonic, especially on a cruise. My DW and I WILL be drinking these when the Celebrity Millennium leaves Ft. Lauderdale on Sunday!

We're also taking on a couple of nice red wines (French, Argentinian, etc.).

My DW is also a Belgian beer lover!

Ciao!

Soooo many poisons to choose from - and it all depends on the meal, the social setting, and sometimes the season.

Wine preferences: sauvignon blanc, malbec blends
Beer preferences: Guiness, stouts, Hefeweitzens (Chimay is another fantastic Belgium product)

Mixed drinks: well, often whatever the house special is! (freshly made hurricanes in New Orleans were good - but the pre-mixed ones from the big vats, ewwww!) Had a fantastic Apple & Thyme Martini last night: fresh seasonal bonza apples shaken with homemade thyme syrup and plymouth gin, lifted with apple liquer, and then finely balanced and shaken with freshly squeezed lemon juice - served straight up. MMMMMMM!!

Mostly red wine or sam adams seasonals, but Balvenie 12yr scotch (w/ splash of water) for special occasions.

Aberguten: 2 fingers of brandy, a splash of peppermint schnaps floating on top. Sounds awful, but it sure tasted good that night in Northern Wisconsin camping. Kept the mosquitos away.

I'm with RunningBum and 72s.... I keep a gallon of diet ice green tea in the ice box at all times. I also like a Tangueray and tonic and have a glass of wine or two with dinner.

Did I mention that TeeRuh (t.r.) stands for Tangueray? A name given to me by friends at the neighborhood pub. I'm pretty much a beer drinker but per these nere-do-wells when I switch to Tangueray and Tonic things get "lively". No idea ...At home I sometimes like an Irish Whiskey (Clontiff) or Dewar's. (both with a splash of water.)t.r.

Beer, obviously. Mostly homebrew. Always amazed at what beer costs when I buy it in the store.

Also enjoy whiskey, especially small batch bourbon, single malt scotch, some of the canadians. Aged rum is nice, especially rhum agricole. A fan of tequila, as well, although I mostly stick to the silver variety. Hard to go wrong with good brandy either.

Yukon Jack + peppermint schnaps = Old Snowshoe

Worked the retail liquor industry 16 years before I retired. Used to drink Jim Beam and coke. After retirement, switched to diet coke to avoid weight gain, but the Jim Beam started tasting too sweet with the diet coke. Was at the liquor store one day and they had 1.75L of Old Crow on sale for $11.99--bought one on a lark and liked it--so now it's Old Crow & diet coke. Occasionally do Gilby's Gin, but only like it with the diet 'Twist Off' lemon/lime soda that Walmart sells. When it's wine time, gotta be Cabernet Sauvignon (tried Charles Shaw for a while, but have upgraded since then). In response to Cute Fuzzy Bunny's post# 23, I was always told never to drink anything you can see through.
