favorite booze?

So what's your favorite booze? As a homebrewer I love beer but after that it is rum. I love whalers vanilla rum. I've been trying other types and brandy is ok, but I haven't found anything else I can handle. What's your favorite?

Favorite? I can't say that I have really had much occasion to judge various alcohols on their merits of flavor alone, but I tend to mix with rum or spiced rum quite a bit. Cruzan rum is pretty good I suppose, from the British Virgin Islands, much cheaper if you buy it there too.

Taking straight shots of any given alcohol doesn't really do it for me. I mean, my friends will get all worked up about doing a shot of tequila or whiskey, but to me it's almost like nothing. Did shots of this Chinese whiskey my friend brought back from a trip (to China of all places) and I thought it tasted like honey, honest. They all gagged on it and then laughed.

Never tried Everclear though, except to light the BBQ.

I remember the fun of my first few dozen Goldschlager. And Jägermeister.

Those were the days.

Cascade Gin, from the Bend Distillery. Phy and dave, they are even "local" down in bend oregon. Washington State liquor stores usually carry the gin. not sure about their other stuff. And unlike cheap gin, it doesn't taste like turpentine.

@#$%& Rum, the 90 something proof (blue label).
Fell in love with "painkillers" at a bar in the Bahamas.

I have taken to wine in the past year or so, and am trying to learn about all the different styles and flavors. No favorites there, yet.

German Pilsener, in Germany.
Southwest german dry red wines-- Trollinger, Lemberger-- they drink it all themselves and send us that sweet white rhineland crap.
Milk-liquours, like Bailey's and Kahlua. I try never to consume less than 3,000 calories at a party.

Any peaty single malt, but a good frriend gave me a 30th anniversary (frightening that I've known him that long) present of a bottle of double-aged Lagavoulin.

If I ever see another bottle, I'll buy it on the spot.

m m m ...... Woods Hole, Rolling Rock and shots of dry gin.
Younger days.

Now it's just wine. Lucky if I polish off a bottle in a week.

I agree with mikebw that shots are a waste. Just plug a needle in my arm and download a few gigs of alcohol... yuck.

I want to enjoy the process.

That said, I will sip a straight liquor. I love trying different single malt scotches, straight up, no rocks. Even something as inexpensive as a Jamison Irish Whiskey is good over rocks every once in a while. And a really smooth cognac, like Hennesy XO or Martel Cordon Bleu is very nice.

But I don't do any of those very often. Usually it's a Shiner Bock, a Pacifico or a nice but inexpensive wine. Or a frozen marg, with salt. Or a Cosmo, with fresh lime.

Here are some really nice wines you should be able to find for about $10 or less:

Cartlidge & Brown Cabernet
Bogle Old Vine Zin
Windy Ridge Cab
Mangrove Jack Shiraz (Aussie)
Mangrove Jack Cab/Merlot (Aussie)
Bogle Petit Sirah
Rosemont Shiraz (Aussie)
Crosspoint Cabernet

DeLoach Chardonnay
Cartlidge & Brown Chardonnay
Taft Street Sauv Blanc





Don't ask who the bell's for, dude. It's you.

If we're talking Beer and similar ilk, I'd have to say Young's Double Chocolate Stout and Bass. No matter how many beers I tend to like, I keep going back to these two.

If we're talking hard Likker, then I'd say Amaretto sours and Single Malt Bushmills.
With regards to Amaretto. Lazzaroni is the best. Real smooth, mellow. Wonderful tast. DiSarono (sp?) is a close second.

For beer I like a good cask ale and the best I can do for that lately is Belhaven. Otherwise a good Islay malt (scotch). Laphroig is a favorite.

it's been many, many years since I've been able to enjoy any, but from the pre-neurologically challenged era, my faves were good microbrew beers, well aged single malt scotches that usually spent some time in sherry casks, and darker, flavorful rums. none needed mixing w/ anything, all are now just memories...



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

In the context of this family-oriented forum one would have to assume that the OP wasn't asking about "unsafe" drinking practices, rf. However, your answer per 1st google hit, courtesy of Cecil B. Adams, is 2 calories per serving.

Seagrams 7
Monopolova Vodka (inexpensive but does not taste that way)
Crown Royal

Gave up drinking Hard A for the most part. Could not control my high or low. Sneaks up on you, go from buzzed to trashed too fast. I can pace myself better with beer, keeps a good even buzz.

I drink MGD or Highlife during the winter and pacifico during the summer on the boat. I always start with a good local micro IPA once I get going I use the domestic to maintain...

Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. It has to be what Coke was made for. Mix it heavy it you want to get silly. Mix it light if you want a nice easy buzz. Very smooth.

Making me thirsty.

him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
