Default Alcohol thread

What's your favorite drink? I've never been much a drinker for liquor, but now I've gotten a real curiosity for the stuff. I've been working in a liquor store for seven months now and I want to expand my alcohol horizon. So here, I want to discuss all the drinks out there; good, bad, "it's alright". Not just liquor, but beer and even wine (even though I personally don't touch the grapes).

Let me say that Naked Turtle rum is . Grab a bottle of that and some root beer. I seriously want a Naked Turtle shirt so I can rock that ****. http://www.nakedturtle.com/age_gate/...le.com/splash/

Today I bought Lunazul resposado tequila for margaritas I'm making tomorrow. I've taken two shots of it tonight and I like it. It feels like the more I drink of it, the more I'll like it. The Hornitos Lime Shot tequila is pretty good.

Last Sunday, I spent an afternoon riverside drinking a 7&7 with a splash of red Gatorade and I also had a Goose Island Summertime beer. Really liked that whiskey cocktail. The Summertime tasted a lot better out in the sun as opposed to the first time I had it, on my porch at night. The Goose Island Honker's Ale is delicious and the IPA is not bad.

Anyone ever have Crown Royal Maple? Believe it or not, I tried it with Coke and orange juice and loved it; tastes like breakfast.

I gave up drinking for the most part , but still do it occasionally. Mah drink of choice has always been JackDaniels and Coke. The Long Island Iced Tea is another favorite.

Lagavulin straight, or a Johnny Black & Ginger with lime.

Champagne is my favourite. Even cheap stuff. I just love the taste combined with the bubbles, and I find that it is the nicest kind of drunk too - forgive the pun, but it makes me bubbly

As a rule i'm a Cider drinker. No surprise, where I come from in Somerset, UK everyone is a cider drinker.

At uni I was into Lager, and have been through stages of drinking Guinness. We also have a Real Ale festival once a year where i'm from, and a few of those are great (though I find ale drunk makes me really sleepy).

But I am a girl so enjoy things like - Southern comfort with lime and lemonade, vodka and cranberry, archers, midori, Cointreau (orange flavoured liquor) and most fruit flavoured liquors/schnapps or shots. As well as of course wkd's/Smirnoff ices and other bottled mixes. Oh, and Pimms in the summer

I enjoy certain sweeter rums like sailor jerry's or morgan's spiced, but too much is just so sickly. Wine I can drink and often do, but I usually regret it in the morning as it gives me a god awful hangover. Gin and Tonic is another one I might occasionally go for. Oh and Bailey's is great, but goes down too easy so I end up spending a tonne of money.

For shots, usually go for Sambuca or Tequila. I even used to love this technique for Sambuca shots where you put it in a wine glass, swill it round so there's some all around the glass, pour it out, then light the Sambuca left on the wine glass for a few seconds, blow it out, drop it down on the bar, stick a straw underneath and inhale the fumes).

Have also tried my hand at absinthe a few times, but I've never gone mad on it - seen a few friends with their heads over the toilet after that

Jaeger Bombs are a bit of a craze over here at the moment (Jaegermeister in a shot glass, dropped into a normal glass with a small portion of red bull in it, and down the lot in one go).

Things I can't drink unless I absolutely have to - whiskey, brandy, Bacardi, unsweetend rum, cocktails with tequila in, Malibu (coconutty), and disarono (like marzipan).

BTW, all of this comes from 5 years of working in bars... as well as being British

Me too. I also like Mojitos, Bloody Mary's and when I need a pick-me-up a Red Bull and Vodka.

I did my own alcohol thread a while back, but I realize this is a subject that probably gets mined a lot. http://forums.superherohype.com/showthread.php?t=363139

Back when I used to have a tipple or two, I'd very much like Stella Artois or if I wanted something smaller, I'd have a Southern Comfort and ice, no mixers though. Another one I liked was vodka with American Dry ginger ale and ice.

But since I got serious about getting back into my training, I very rarely have alcohol now.

Hmmmmmm, getting thirsty now, but it is before 10:00!!! Better grab a coffee then.

Edit:
Forgot to mention that I absolutely love port. I was lucky enough to have a bottle of 40 year old Graham's Tawny port over Christmas. That went down really well.

If I am partydrinking I can probably drink anything that doesn't taste too bad but if I'm just chilling at home after a long day I usually end up with a beer, preferably something dark.
I have found that there are a lot of really nice english beer out there, for example Guinness, Innis & Gunn, Kilkenny, KingGoblin and similar ones.

That Naked Turtle rum sounds so good, I want to try some of that. I'm not really much of a drinker but like an occasional Jack & Coke, or glass of white wine. Maybe a shot of Absolute vodka, that's about it.

I don't drink much these days, except for a beer every now and than. But when I did drink, I liked Vodka and cranberry juice. And every now and than I'd enjoy some good old Rum.

I will get into some of my preferences and bartending stuff some other time (I worked in bars for way too long), but speaking of breakfast...

Drop a shot that is half Jameson (or any Irish whiskey) and half Buttershots (or any butterscotch schnapps/liqueur) into some orange juice and drink it like a shot/bomb. It's like getting drunk off pancakes.

This.



It's a German Weissbier or 'white beer' and is typically poured into those awesome pint glasses (providing the bar has them). I think it's 7.3% and it's bloody awesome. They're nice for just sitting in a decent bar with some friends and drinking slowly over an afternoon session.

But other than that I drink lager mostly, usually Fosters or Carlsberg. I do like my cider too, usually Strongbow as it's most readily available in bars but I prefer flavoured ciders such as pear Kopparberg, blueberry St. Helier and strawberry Brothers.

If I'm party/night out drinking I tend to drink mostly spirits and bombs. I mainly stick with JD and Coke or Vodka and Red Bull but some times I'll have a Sambuca and Coke. Sambuca is also my favourite shot to do - especially Black Sambuca but I normally do bombs these days as many local bars run offers on Jagerbombs (like 3 Jagerbombs for £5). Before Jagerbombs became really popular like a few years ago I use to really like two other bombs called Soviet Ice Bomb (which tastes like Palma Violet) and the Dr. Pepper but not many places seem to do/know them and when I get drunk I always forget what goes in them so I can't ask lol.

Usually it's vodka and cranberry (with the odd tequila shot or two thrown in)... but I've never been much of a drinker.
