    All time favorite is Laphroaig whisky.

    Although I am a sinner myself, it might be a good idea to write before imbibing. Certain literary immortals have gotten away with it such as Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Dylan Thomas, Mailer and such, but for us ordinary people it is not a good idea. Just a thought.

        Bob,

        No insult intended and I hope none taken. You do seem to have a good sense of humor about you. I am an old fogy about three times you age, well experienced on the subject of libations.

        Being an old fogy I am set in my ways and just as when I was young I did not understand older people, now I do not understand younger people, somehow the circle always comes 'round. Every time. I do understand that younger folk use a lot of abbreviations, icons and short cuts when communicating on the web. It always raises my hackles as I think it diminishes true communication and language itself.

        When I was your age, I explored all kinds of libations, just to find out where my true tastes resided. It was a new world and an adventuresome one. I did everything from wine to whisky to liquor, beers of every sort and about at your age was introduced to Scotch whisky. I hated it initially as I had unsophisticated tastes at that time and it tasted funky. In short order I began to appreciate it, however. Although expensive, it needs no mixer other than water, also the cost of good Scotch may prevent one from drinking too much of it at one time

        If I had the audacity to advise a young person about alcohol, I would say start with Scotch.
        Scotch has a complexity of taste that invites one to sip slowly and appreciate the effort of the people that made it Good alcohol is only as good as the people that make it and the Scots make it very well and have done so for centuries.

          FAVORITE alcoholic drink has to be an Orangatang, only place I know that makes it is in Branson at a Restaurant. But dont remeber the name. Its right next to Andy Williams Moon River Theatre. If anyone can devise a recipe that makes just one of these drinks and not a whole keg let me know.
          NEXT FAVORITE right now is a GOOD Pina Colada!!
          Gotta go.............I need a drink

            Evan Williams bourbon with ice and water.

            You always know exactly "where you are"; mixed drinks can sneak up on you.

                I find myself drinking daiquiri in the summer.
                You can make it with banana, peach, strawberry, mango, any fruit!.
                In a blender put 1 cup of peeled fruit, 1/2 cup Captain Morgan rum, juice from 1 lime, 2 tsp sugar and fill the rest with ice. Blend.
                Great!

                        I'll have what Greyghost is having.
                        Scotch on the rocks for sloooow sipping.

                        Wine with dinner (Shiraz or a good Chardonnay)

                        Sometimes a sweet, summer-type drink when out and about with friends.

                          depends on the situation and the mood. being in the business allows me to see a lot of new products but i can always count on the old (and not so old)reliables i.e. JD,Capt,Goose, Jameson,Ketel and an array of wine!

                            Bushmills 10 year malt with Canada dry ginger ale, a Blue Lagoon cocktail or pernod with root beer (weird combo but it works for me).

                                My favorite is a good english ale although in the summer I will occasionally partake in Southern Comfort and orange juice with a generous squeeze of lemon - Quite refreshing on a hot day.

                                  I'm a beer boy. I've been homebrewing beer 15 years, and wine 8 years.

                                  Among beer:
                                  1) IPAs and Imperial IPAs. - Because basically I'm a hop-head.
                                  2) Saisson/french farmhouse/belgian's - loosely lumping these together.
                                  3) Barleywine - big giant flavor, lots of hops (again), and of the very very few beers that actually ages like a wine. (And not all wines age either.)

                                    Hard to choose, but I'll try.
                                    1) Knob Creek, a little water, a little ice;
                                    2) Lagavulin, a little water, a little ice; or a
                                    3) A 5:1 Gibson made with Tanqueray #10, M&R vermouth, Mezzetta onions.

                                    The only sweet drink I enjoy is a Gin & Tonic.

                                      I'm not a "hard liquor" kinda guy. I had a run-in once and it didn't go so well.

                                      My 3 favorites would be:

                                      1. Youngs Double Chocolate Stout

                                      2. Ska Brewing Companys' Ten Pin Porter

                                      3. Corona with a lime which is perfect with all Mexican food and a great beer on a hot summers day in Arizona.

                                        I can't get a drink out here in AZ! From the time I get it poured, until the time I'm ready to drink it, it's EVAPORATED! Damn the dry heat out here!

                                        This is no joke-- On hot dry days, you can watch rain coming from scattered clouds and it will evaporate before it hits the ground! If I'm lyin', I'm Dyin'

                                            My favorites:

                                            1) A Bloody Mary with freshly shredded horseradish & Kettle One or Stoli pepper vodka. Tough to beat with a Sunday brunch.

                                            2) A pint of Guinness anytime...but especially on a cold day.

                                            3) A chilled stoli vodka & tonic with a splash of 7-Up after a round of golf

                                            4) An ice cold PBR (16 oz. can) w/ a bowl of buffalo or Thai wings at the kickoff of any NFL event

                                              Okay, I'll probably catch a LOT of slack for my top 3...
                                              1 - PBR , still a good and cheap beer that I like alot. I'm not big on heady or strong beers

                                              2 - Skedva Mandarin vodka w/ cold OJ

                                              3 - Johnny Walker Red on the rocks with a water chaser

                                                Svedka Clementine is my brand!!!! A good bargain when compared vs. Absolut. Many will say it is a better product for less money and it is from the same country(Sweden). It is my biggest seller in my portfolio.

                                                  This time of year,when its 90 + degrees every day,and work involves much sweating and dehydration,nothing satisfies as much as the classic gin and tonic.Tanqueray is best but Gordons,Gilbeys,even the cheap brands will get the job done.Beer is always welcome as well,but PBR?? Man that stuff is nothing but a headache.For the money I much prefer Stroh's.If Im flush I enjoy Heineken and the microbrews are fun to play with but costly.The Makers Mark and Jack Daniels are pretty much put away in the cabinet till wintertime.

                                                    The best Tequila I can afford, and today with price of Tequila it will be somewhere around $35. On the rocks with a good slice of lime

                                                      Cold Beer- Shiner's Boch on a hot muggy day.

                                                      Knob Creek or Buffalo Trace mixed with an equal amount of frozen lemonade concentrate (about 6 oz of each) over large ice cubes. (A Redneck Whiskey Sour)

                                                      Fruit flavored Schnapps, over ice, (Peach, Pear, Sour Apple, Cinnamon, Cherry) A summer drink.

                                                      Winter mixed drink would be an "Alpine". Peppermint Schnapps in a thermos of Hot Chocolate!

                                                        Jack Daniel's could be used in the summer to make a Lynchburg Lemonade!!! I never had one until i earned a company trip to the distillery. Boy was that good lemonade :)

                                                        Also for you Gin and Tonic lovers(which i must admit, i am not) there is a new tonic out there that is supposed to be the creme de la creme of tonic. It is called Q Tonic. A guy conjured it up with a bunch of his buddies when he found that most tonic ruined his good gin!!!

                                                        PBR on tap is very good(really!!!) Had that down in TN too for the first time.

                                                        Enjoy the rest of summer!

                                                          An Irish Car Bomb. A pint of Guiness, plus a shot of Bailey's plus a shot of whiskey. You have to drink it in 3.5 seconds otherwise the Bailey's starts to curdle the beer. Enjoy! I myself can "do" about five of them before I start to get a little silly acting...
