Alcohol Discussion!

Since the picture thread got a little side tracked with all the different references to alcohol, namely, martinis i thought i would post a new thread about booze. So this is to discuss what you like, don't like, what you'd like to try, blah, blah, blah, etc.

As for me, i love martinis. Gin with olives. Also, i enjoy scotch.

What about you?

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

I'm not much of a beer drinker but I'm developing a taste for stuff like Chimay, Pacifico and others. I'm more of a cocktail person. I really like Disaronno amaretto, screwdrivers, rum punch...

I don't really care for wine outside of white zinfandel which tastes like soda pop. I have developed a tolerance for it though so I don't mind drinking it socially.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

Extremely dirty vodka martinis, Gs&Ts, and margaritas are my most-consumed drinks. However, I'm mainly a beer person, preferring the darkest, maltiest, smokiest stouts out there.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

I'm mostly a beer and wine drinker. Developing into a bit of a snob on both fronts, I must admit... heh.

Never cared much for martinis, cocktails, liqueurs, etc. though. They've just never really appealed to me.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

I prefer dark beers like Guinness. For liquor there is nothing finer than a glass of whiskey. Bourbon is the best, but I like a good Canadian whiskey as well. Mixed or clean, it doesn't matter too much.

Clausthaler Golden Amber. All the great taste of a German dark beer, but no alcohol.

I downloaded an awesome drink recipe app for my iPod Touch, and it had an intriguing Guinness recipe involving cream and cinnamon.

Is your abstinence from alcoholic drinks a temporary thing (say, for health or weight loss) or more permanent?

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

The only way I'd drink gin is if it was the only alcohol available and I had to perform an emergency appendectomy on myself. It's the only spirit that I simply detest.

A man after my own heart.

Scotch, single malt, preferable highland, neat.

I'm a huge martini fan (and by martini, I mean gin or vodka with a touch of vermouth -- none of these fru fru flavored drinks in a triangular glass) with an olive, twist or onion. [James Bond]shaken, not stirred.[/James Bond]

Unfortunately, though I like gin martinis, I've learned over the years that they decidedly do not like me. So, I've had to switch to vodka. Which are almost as good, as long as the vodka is good; plus there's the benefit of no hangover.

I'm also a big fan of wine and good beer. Oh, and a nice, smooth, sipping tequila. Some rums, and boubon's nice for a Manhattan, and I was recently introduced to "real" absinthe, with the whole ritual of the water decanter, slotted spoons, sugar, flame ....

Do I have a problem, you think?

Let's just say that rehab isn't the way Dr. Drew's TV show would have audiences believe.

Permanent, for health. (Among other reasons, that is.)
No wonder you yell at me so much.

Actually, the classic way is without flame. Cold water over a sugar cube placed on the spoon, with the dissolving sugar allowed to create a translucent louche in the liquor.
