Whatís your drink of choice?

For those who enjoy an alcohol drink what are some of your go to favorites?

For me I donít drink beer much but when I do itís either Dos X or Lone Star Light (yep Iím from Texas lol)

I enjoy a good margarita but Iíll admit I would rather make them at home. Lately I found a dark rum that I am a fan of thatís really good with ice tea. My go to mixed drink is either Crown or Seagramís VO Gold with sugar free 7-Up.

My favorite thing to drink is tequila. So, Margaritas! -Rocks with a high quality reposado and cognac floater.

I own a bar/restaurant, so I have lots of opportunity to make all kinds of different flavors. Mmmm they're so good.

I discovered Orange vodka and sugar free 7-Up is good on a hot summer day. Or a spring day, a fall day, or night, a winter............

And speaking of hot summer days. Frozen daiquiri recipe: Can of frozen limeade. Fill can with rum. Some lemon juice. Mix in a blender. Add a quart of 7-up. Stir. Pour into plastic cups and freeze. Eat with a spoon.

For me a beer is one of those acquired tastes that I never acquired.
I have a few drink of choice(s).
1. My homemade 198 Blueberry flavored white lightning.
2. Apple Crown and/or Peach Crown.

All this talk has me wanting some now and I just got out of church!
Thanks for nothing! Lol!

Ah yes, my first job at 16 working in a bakery with machines that could kill you.
"Hey kid. Want a beer?"
"No thanks. Don't like the taste."
"Ya like scotch?"

It was pre-OSHA days ya know.

Iíve had guys that drink a lot of Crown tell me they canít tell a difference between Crown and VO Gold mixed in soda. Itís definitely not a bourbon but it is an underrated whiskey in my opinion.

Usually a craft beer drinker; something dark and chewy. None of those fruity IPA hop bombs for me. Current favorite is Dragon's Milk Stout or Ale.

If I'm traveling in the Southeast, I enjoy a Blenheim's HOT ginger ale with a shot of vodka and a half-lime.

Not really a liquor guy usually - which is funny because I worked my way into and through college as a bartender at one of the most popular cocktail bars in town. I can mix a great cocktail, but I guess I just got tired of it after 7 years.

Painkiller!

This is a great drink to pre-prep before you get to your favorite site because you prep it in a 1 gallon jug. You can use a dark rum, or a spiced rum, but the original calls for Pusser's Rum.

1. Save one of your 1 gallon water jugs after it's empty.
2. Pour in a 48 oz can of pineapple juice.
3. Add a 1 15 oz can of Coco Lopez (if it's cold, it will be very thick, just stick the can (unopened) out in the sun for a couple of hours).
4. Take that empty Coco Lopez can and fill it with orange juice. Add that to the jug.
5. Shake it up really well and save it for when you're ready.

Make your drink:
1. Take 1 red solo cup (it's a thing...just do it). You will need a second one, so have it on standby.
2. Add ice to the cup.
3. Shake up the mixture and add to the cup. Leave some room for the alkamahol.
4. Add 1-2oz of Rum
5. Pour the mixture back and fourth between the 2 solo cups twice.
6. Grate some fresh nutmeg over the top.

Drink and repeat.

I’m an Old Fashioned guy. An Old Fashioned does not have a recipe, it has a formula:
1) Spirit
2) Sweetener
3) Bitters
4) Orange peel, lemon peel or cherry note.
The combinations are endless and as long as you don’t let the bartender muddle the fruit they’re usually great.
Cheers

Very nice!

My preferences can change with time of day, temperature (ambient...not mine) and if we're sitting by the fire. It ranges from a soda to a nice dry red wine, to Jim Beam Orange. Sometimes a Bourbon Cream on the rocks.

Always a beer after all the important or dangerous things setting up are finished.
