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



Next time you make a Bloddy Mary try using Gin instead of Vodka. Use 50/50 V8 and Clamato. Worchester sauce. Rim the glass with the celery salt. Must be coarse cracked pepper. A little anchovie paste. Horse raddish. Squeeze in half of a small Mexican thin skinned lime and drop it in. Pleanty of Hot Sauce non vinegar based. 1/4 pickle spear, whole celery stalk with foliage,3 big olives, crushed red pepper flakes. Serve in a very tall glass. Dinner is served. I am making one now...Russ

        My favorite right now is the Offical Drink of Brazil the Caipirinha. Make sure you rim the glass with raw sugar and squirt a little simple syrup in the glass also. If you have an Ice Crusher use it also.

        I prepare it like the video says except I do it in a coctail shaker with finer crushed ice 3 ounces Cacacha and shake vigorously. Then pour into the rimmed glass...Russ

        Much better than a Mojito

            My wife doesnt like gin either but after I made her one of these she only has a Gin Mary now.Give it a try once you might change your mind. And Gin is a way better buzz than Vodka...Russ

              I realized quite awhile ago that the world is a better place if I don't drink Gin. I have no problem with other spirits, wine or beer, but Gin brings out the devil in me & I don't mean that in a good sense.

                Woodchuck hard cider. Amber. We keep some at home, on hand.

                If I'm out at a bar or whatever and there's no cider option, I usually order a Chambord sour. Like a whiskey sour but with Chambord. Niiiice.

                Never liked beer, though.

                Wines, I like the sweet German whites. A nice Riesling is my fave.
