Alright lets do this.

You'd be surprised the vast majority of the people here aren't 12/13/17 years old.

So lets hear it.  What's your favorite drink?

Beer?  Cocktail?  Mixed Drink?  Wine?  Straight up Liquor?

I'm more of a nice beer type of guy.  My days of heavy consumption is now over, most of my time is spent with nice Whiskey or Scotch (can't beat Jameson) and a nice specialty beer. 

Recommended Beer:

Fat Tire (New Belgium Brewery, brewed in my hometown actually!) 

Landshark

Dogfish Head

Most and all IPAs

Otto's Apricot Wheat 

Blue Moon

Odell IPA

There was this really good beer I had when I was visiting Austin, Texas.  It reminded me of Blue Moon but was a local brew, apparently really popular, don't remember the name but had a few of it.  Was fantastic!  

Is there any other alcoholics around here?

I love a simple Rum and Coke. However, lately I find that a simple glass of Whiskey is often on my palette.
 
Not a fan of IPA's at all.  That crap can go in the garbage.

I'll take a nice Guinness or some KO90 (Koltiska) on the rocks, splash of water.

This is why VPSB is so much greater over WHT and we have much deeper and better topics. We do not have kids here.

WINE!

I've actually become a huge wine fan. Mostly just because it is so classy and makes for great business gift for clients. I've actually started collecting some vintages. New shipment of 12 bottles comes in this week! :D

Other then that I really do not do Alcohol.

Hehe yeah I like to keep and have a few bottles of wine myself.  I'm not that much of an aficionado but I do know the small differences here and there.  

I personally enjoy white wine more than red wine :p but that's also because I enjoy chilled drinks more!

Beer. Preferably Boutique. Although when I am feeling fancy I do enjoy a good Whisky.

More of a Red over White but I still do enjoy the sweet of white.

This is one of my more favorite reds:

Spiced Rum, straight.

When out at dinner or when I feel like a mixed drink, typically plain Jack Daniels.  Though I've become very fond of Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey and Vanilla Root Beer lately.

Johnny Walker in a pinch, Crown if I'm feeling snobby.

Don't drink clear liquors much (yeah, yeah, shaddup).. and I will NEVER touch tequila again.

I would have thought you a Vodka man.  Vodka-wise, I like Grey Goose.  There was a fantastic Russian vodka called Ishtok that my ex brought back from a trip there once - but the next year it was total crap.  This is often the way with Russian vodka, as I understand it - someone makes a quality product and then greed/the mafia comes in and it turns into bathtub crap the next year.

I like most of the fancy vodkas - the difference seems to be that the buzz is clearer and the hangovers easier.  By the time you get down to Absolut, etc. they're a bit rough.

Worst vodka I ever had was Kalishnikov.  This was when it first came out.  Tasted and smelled like kerosene.  I think I still have a lingering headache from that.

Given unlimited budget, I do like high-end Scotch - Oban or Balvenie.  Oban is peatier but I really like the taste and it's probably my favorite.  Balvenie is just pure glory.

I can't afford wine.  Nothing you buy at the supermarket is any good and I don't have the money/interest to get into the good stuff.

Beer?  Proletarian mouthwash.

Gin?  Kind of like vodka - only the good stuff, with Bombay Sapphire entering into the "you'll regret it" territory.

Tequila?  There is some good stuff.  But my drinking days ran out before I really explored it.

These days, my drug of choice is caffeine...I abuse coffee way more than booze.

Don't much care for Grey Goose - I do like Столичная though, and am partial to a glass or two warm when my insomnia's acting up.  But, I grew up in a hamlet where mashed vodka was more plentiful than clean water, so I tend to stick to the browns for liquor :p

Oh man... My tequila days kicked my ass. I mean I'll still drink it but it's tough for me to get it down (*insert gay joke here*).

There's Tito's Corn Vodka that's pretty good and fairly cheap! Grey Goose lost it's interest after I had a bad time with their flavored vodka line. Sometimes just the smell of Grey Goose sends a shiver down my spine.

I will admit, my usual go-to mixed drink is a Long Island Iced Tea. of course I don't really care for mixed drinks and is ordered every now and then (most of the time it's always good old beer).

The endgame on tequila for me came from a bunch of us binge drinking in the barracks one night.. and apparently we ran our of liquor at some point.  Woke up to a couple of empty tequila bottles, empty whiskey bottles, and an open half-empty bottle of orange Windex.  We had an off-post run that day - left a 4 and a half mile stretch of neon orange vomit.  Honestly didn't think we were going to survive that one >_<

Favorite beer: Chimay Ale, though I rarely ever have it. Have Stella Artois in the fridge right nowl

Otherwise, whiskey or rum and soda does the trick.
