Free is my preferred drink.

Usually wine, sometimes beer. Preferred wines? I like most varieties with the notable exception of Reisling.

I suspect that part of the swing back to beer is due to economic factors. Beer is cheaper.

Red wine more than 95% of the time.

Exceptions:
Margaritas with Mexican food - a must.
An occasional single malt scotch.
An occasional sambuca, lemoncello, cognac, etc.
Champagne when the situation calls for it.
White wine with very mild fish (but a Pinot Noir with many fish dishes)
Beer when there's nothing else, if then. Though it was my drink of choice under age 30.

All kinds of wine... Cabernet and Cabernet blends, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blancs from CA and France (Sancerre especially), Petite Sirah, Rhone reds, CA sparkling and French Champagne, etc.

Favorite beers tend to be IPAs and Porters.

Spirits... martinis, scotch (especially Lagavulin 16 yr old), some bourbon and an occasional margarita.

I probably drink about as much as this post suggests

Only drink "something" a couple times a month. Then it is either a medium dry white wine or red shiraz in the winter..and white wine or a Margarita in the summer.

A scotch and water as I "speak". Not picky on brand.
