Fat Tire is my favorite beer, but it is hard to "import" it to this side of the Mississippi. Bell's Oberon is tasty in the summer months. The Christmas season always makes me thirsty for Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA.

A good barley wine like Old Foghorn or an aged imperial stout.

I noticed some people drinking near-beer last night. I just don't get it. I am just not a fan of the "taste" of beer. If I'm drinking it, it is probably 95% alcohol, 5% taste. If I am drinking something to actually enjoy, I'm a fan of the hard ciders. They can be very dangerous!

If anyone watches "How I met your mother" I have to agree with Marshall, when describing how awful it is to be a woman-

Marshall: Oh, poor me. I get to order yummy pink drinks with chunks of real fruit that guys secretly like but can’t order because they’ll be made fun of.
Ted: Dude
Marshall: They’re delicious!

Now that I am married, I am all for the fruity pink stuff. Personal favorite, a nice Mojito with real muddled mint. Also great, Capirinhas.

Those latin countries sure know how to make a fruity drink!

I don't drink beer or liquor of any kind but have you ever tried LBJ's beer of choice Lone Star Beer. It is known as the National Beer of Texas.

My grandpa used to drink it and he told me that it was SO GOOD that it would grow hair on a man's chest.

GOD BLESS

I may very well be mistaken but I thought I read LBJ drank Pearl. Pearl, by the way, is the WORST BEER IN THE WORLD.

I was DEAD WRONG thank you for correcting me.

It turns out that LBJ's favorite drink may have been scotch and soda. The links below are an interesting read.

Wow, it's an interesting world. I don't like the effects of alcohol but love the flavors it comes in. If it didn't make me drunk I would drink all sorts of mixed drinks all the time.

Plus, I am am so many drugs like immunosuppressants that you can't use alcohol with.

I want to try a real Mojito with the crushed mint and real sugar. They make mixes but I'm betting it's just not the same.

I love How I Met Your Mother. I think it's the best comedy on TV.

I love Campari

It's a red Italian liquor that is very bitter. It's an aperitif apparently, but I drink it anytime. Great on its own or with a bit of OJ and lemon juice. I have yet to meet anyone who actually likes this drink as much as me (or likes it at all). Very popular in Italy though.

The few times i've been to england, i quite enjoyed some of the ciders
i had there. When i can back to the states , i tried i few but found
them to be for the most part sorely lacking. Maybe it was because
they were from kegs (fresher??) whatever it was, they were a lot better
in the taste quality department. Of course that can be said of the beer also.
getting a "Hand pulled" pint was just so much more flavorful than something
out of a bottle.

Jameson (any age). My pathetic shot drinking skills have been vastly improved by the dedicated training and demonstrations of my 2 biz partners

Lone Star beer is the WORST beer, many places in South Texas do not even stock it anymore.
DH likes an IPA or Bock beer, Crown Royal liquor and Gin and Tonic with extra lime in the summer.
I like wine occasionally but the new trick drink at our house is Baileys and Butter Shots schnapps on the rocks. Only one after food as it is SWEET. Baileys and coffee is a favorite in the winter too.

Lone Star was what we bought in college sometimes because it was so cheap. It was horrible. Living way below my means then. Now I can afford something better and still not break the bank!
