Recently I've been experimenting with some of the more esoteric liqueurs and cocktails. Since I know many of you are alcoholics, what kind of drinks do you like? I debated putting this in the other alcohol thread, but figured that that one is more about alcohol as related to drunken debauchery. Think of this as the classier version.

Here's a drink that I've recently discovered to be quite good:

The Last Word

- 3/4 oz gin
- 3/4 oz Maraschino
- 3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
- 3/4 oz lime juice
Shake well until very cold, strain and serve. I use New Amsterdam gin and Luxardo Maraschino. The only downside to this drink is that it is a bit expensive to drink very regularly or to serve in significant quantities to guests.

So what drinks do you and your friends drink before you get to the point when you no longer care what the alcohol tastes like? Feel free to post favorite recipes.

Lately I've been a fan of red wine. Otherwise I'm a fan of drinks like those, but not too sweet. Appletinis are good.

Wine is fun, too. I've recently started drinking it more with dinners and such, occasionally. The selection and variety of wines available is completely daunting to a non-expert, but it's fun having every bottle be a bit of a surprise.

Generally I drink whiskey sours at bars and gin and tonics at home (I'm not that creative). recently I had a manhattan at a work party, I didn't like it that much though.

Long Island Iced Tea


A popular version mixes equal parts vodka, gin, tequila, rum and triple sec with 1 1/2 parts sour mix and a splash of cola.

This is easily the best tasting, cost effective drunk in a bar setting.

At home I usually drink Jameson on the rocks. If I can afford it at the time of purchase, I like to splurge and get a bottle of Dimple Pinch or Glenfiddich scotch whiskey.

Anejo tequila on the rocks.

Either that or any bright-colored girly drink that has a bunch of sugar and fruit in it.

I'm mostly a beer drinker, but when it comes to liqeur, for me, it's whisky or bust.

I'll accept any whisky based drink, although I'm particularly partial to the whisky sours. I'm a little bit picky on which whisky, though. Maybe subconsciously it's just the patriotism, but I grossly prefer canadian whiskies over tennesee/texas whiskies. I'm a huge Crown Royal fan. Crown royal is the sexiest drink known to man.

I do not like green chartruese!

I'm not a fan of really strong tasting alcohol drinks. I used to be. I used to love the taste of booze. now I try to mask it a bit more. Drinks I like are:

Amaretto sours (sort of weak though)
Cherry vodka sour
Cherry vodka/ diet coke

Red wines:
Rioja
Pinot Noir
Cabernet Sauvignon
Tempranillo
Malbec

Whites:
Viognier
Chardonnay (sometimes)
Nothing too acidic or crisp (any suggestions?)

That's really all I drink these days.

I'm not an alcoholic anymore.

If I'm out bar in Orlando has dollar shots of Rumple Minze on Wednesdays, otherwise double Rum (anything but Bacardi) and Coke.

If it's a house party or whatever I usually show up with Sailor Jerry's rum and Monster.

I've pretty much destroyed my ability to drink anything other than rum at this point, especially vodka.

Have you tried Yellow Chartreuse? I hear it's sweeter and milder, but no stores or bars around here have it, so I haven't been able to try it. Next time I'm in Tampa I'm gonna try one of the liquor stores in the rich South Tampa area and see if they have it.

I haven't had many opportunities to get too creative, though i'd love to. I also haven't tried many of the popular 'drinks' either because they're so damn expensive at bars.

As far as hard liquor goes, i'm pretty much a rum man. Whiskey is good, but straight shots can be pretty rough. Vodka is only good insofar that it usually mixes well with mostly anything. Tequila is like rum but tends tickles my barf muscles. Thats all I really have enough experience with to have much of an opinion on. I'd like to try more regional liquors though.

Mixed drinks, like I said, I haven't really had the opportunity to try most of the classics. My safe bet is a rum and coke, and if possible, rum and cherry coke. And if possible, Bacardi 151 with cherry coke.



Pretty much every professionally made drink that i've tried tastes good though, unless it has a particular ingredient I don't like (banana, coffee).

Never really liked wines, though I've never really tried any 'fancy' wines. But the basic taste of them doesn't do much for me.

Beers. I used to hate beer, but i've worked myself pretty deep into them. My beer of choice would probably be Coors light. It's a pretty good beer to be a favorite, because it's usually at every party and always pretty cheap and often on special at bars.




I don't generally like very dark beers. They remind me of coffee, which I hate.

Yea 151 is great. You don't need to drink more than a couple shots to get drunk.

White Russian!

It's like Kahlua and milk and vodka, or something.
I don't know exactly.
Tastes like chocolate.

It's not like i actually make elaborate drinks for myself though, vodka and orange juice works fine.

And of course, beer.

I actually haven't tried the yellow variety. We do have it here, but I never buy it. I want to try it first and not waste the money.

I rarely drink beer, but I am somewhat of a beer snob. I won't drink "most" domestic beer (i don't like pisswater)except for some local brewed stuff around here. My favorite beer of all time is Belhaven, second is Mythos.

Chopin, up, with a twist.

Beer. Usually something hoppy like Matilda. Or just a good ole Miller Lite will do.
