Re: What's Your Drink?

Been drinking a lot of single malt scotch, recently. Macalland 12, neat. Going broke because of it, but man it's good. (I used to go with burbon more--Austin Nichols Wild Turkey 101, Makers--when I lived south of the Mason-Dixon line.)

Guiness draft pulled slow by a proper Irish bar keep--Brendan's on 35th street; Freddy's in Prospect Heights. I went to Ireland last summer for my honeymoon, and you really can't get Guiness here, but I can dream... (Ireland kicks ass, btw!)

In summer I drink a lot of Cuba Libres and Carona with lime. Tequilla shots are always good--I like Sauza, but I haven't tried that many kinds.

I dig all the microbrews, though my standard is Brooklyn Lager, from the Brooklyn Brewing Company. They bottle a lot of their beer in Utica, NY, but they have abrewery in Williamsburgh Brooklyn where they do the kegs and lots of specalty beers. Good stuff.

When in a pinch, I'll drink (almost!) anything. Haven't been near St. Ides since "the incident."

"The incident" LOL....Nothing beats a Cuba Libre on a hot summer night...except maybe a good Piña Colada. I became hooked on Mike's hard lemonade two years ago. Have one (at least) every Sunday during football season. But for some bizarre reason that's the only time I have it.

Belvedere on the Rocks and occaisonal Bookers, Knobbs Creek Bourbon on the Rocks and a good stiff spicy bloody mary on Sundays. Not a beer drinker but bought the wife a kegarator and it always has a keg of Molson going. She's the beer drinker.

Re: What's Your Drink?

I'm a beer guy myself, but I'm not picky and I'll drink most anything that's put in front of me.

I prefer a beer with some taste, Guinness being my all-time favorite. Black and tans are also nice. On those hot summer days it's tought to beat an ice cold Corona with a lime.

I'm not above having something like Miller Lite now and then though, or back in college something really crappy like Milwaukee's Best. But I'm sure we've all had our share of bad beer in our college days. Nothing like flat keg beer left over from the night before, MMMMMM! LOL

For mixed drinks I like 7&7's, VO & 7 and Bacardi and coke.

I'm not really into the really sweet "girly" drinks, but an occasional pina colada is pretty damn good.

LI ice teas are great too but they just kick your ass, not something you want to drink alot of.

Re: What's Your Drink?

it's funny to look back at college, and realize the horrid crap we would drink because it was all we could afford...

in my day, Natty Light was the cheap beer of choice...i believe we'd pay like 7/case for a party (local beer store ran 10 case specials, and Natty was always 70/10 cases)...

however, i was a sophisticated beer snob (and still am), and instituted a tradition my brothers continue today...Import Night. once a week, we'd get together to drink and hang out together...except, the beer you bought had to be foreign or a microbrew...which for a 6 pack was usually the same price as a case of cheap beer. this way, you could see the advantages of hanging out to drink, but not get totally shitfaced.

this past year, my fraternity brothers complained because Natty was up to 10/case...so now they partake in an infamous Maryland pastime called National Bohemian (or Natty Boh) because it's cheaper...i refuse to drink Natty Boh because they stopped selling it in the older jug bottles (think Red Stripe).

the cheap beer i partake in these days (besides your run of the mill Bud Light, Miller Lite, etc) is Pabst Blue Ribbon. It's actually not too bad...not like it used to be.

Re: What's Your Drink?

Argh... all of a sudden PBR is making a comeback. I prefer it over Natty, but damn it's still rough.

Re: What's Your Drink?

the Pabst Brewing Company is buying up a lot of smaller brewing companies, and starting to either continue or reintroduce beers back into the market...

http://www.pabst.com/ourbeer.htm

PBR is like 5.49/12, still relatively cheap...and there's a bar in Frederick I frequent that has it on tap.

Re: What's Your Drink?

It IS dirt cheap. It's the new Natty. As far as cheap beer goes, I'm fan of "The Paw" all the way (Southpaw).

50 cents! Wow. I'd get wasted with just 4 bucks!

Re: What's Your Drink?

Back in college we had this little tavern that nobody knew about, and they had .25 cent drafts (any domestic on tap!) from 4-6 every day, and they put out some great free food like wings, ribs and nachos.

We used to scrap together our laundry money to hit that place, LOL. Eventually our little secret got out and the .25 cent drafts sadly turned into two for ones.

I hate when that happens. Mmmmm wings, ribs, nachos... The stuff that dreams are made of. NOW if they only had a HUGE HDTV.

Re: What's Your Drink?

Also, speaking of HDTV in my other post where I was asking for video capture card recommendations, I found one that I definitely am going to get that is 199 for HDTV capability. Just for everyone's convenience, once the season starts I'll tape all the games and burn them to DVD for anyone who wants one.
