This weekend is my first as a legal drinker, so I thought I'd ask what y'all like to drink when relaxing and what-not.

Honestly, I'm not a beer man, so what's your favorite other drinks?

I'm making a trip to the liquor store tomorrow so your responses will affect buying choices
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 7:55:41 PM EST
50% whiskey 50% Coke

Preferably Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, or Rebel Yell. In that order.

Hennessy VSOP if I dont have any XO.

Had a bad time with vodka a few weeks back. Killed an entire bottle of some shitty $12 mix and pretty much wanted to die the entire next day. Haven't had any desire to touch vodka since, or I'd do some with tonic.

If we're talking other drinks, I've always liked whiskey and I'm getting very accustomed to a little Glenlivet in the evenings.

As for being a beer man, I wasn't either back when I was young and the only beer I'd ever tasted was the Bud and Miller crap I could get my hands on. Once I discovered some of the better stuff out there I became much more of a beer drinker. These days you can get Newcastle and Guiness most everywhere and microbreweries are more popular. For dinner tonight we grilled some buffalo meat for burgers and broke open a growler of ale from Rock Bottom brewery, a damned fine combination.

Try a Long Island Iced Tea;

1 part vodka
1 part tequila
1 part rum
1 part gin
1 part triple sec
1 1/2 parts sweet and sour mix
1 splash Coca-Cola

Mix ingredients together over ice in a glass. Pour into a shaker and give one brisk shake. Pour back into the glass and make sure there is a touch of fizz at the top. Garnish with lemon.

A great drink for the novice. Refreshes as it puts you on the floor.

Link Posted: 4/14/2006 8:14:22 PM EST
Apple Pucker, Boones, MD 20/20 or Schlitz.
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 8:14:39 PM EST
-Mikes (hard lemonade, ect...many flavors)

Freeze a drink, throw it in a blender, crush it up. Add some fruit, ect and you have a kickass slushie!

Runs about $30.00 a bottle.

Casual drinking... Apart from a cold beer.

Then something like this :
Get some cheese and crackers to go with it.... Perfect.

Wow! My powers of observation fail me again. I must have had Woodford reserve 20 times and never noticed the regular bottle said distillers select on it.
Now I feel like an ass. Oh well I'll just make another drink.

+1 on this one, especially for a first time drinker who (gasp) doesn't like beer.

Once you get a few whiskey sours inya, you'll begin to build a personal relationship with that spirit and can start to appreciate it.

Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:53:29 PM EST
Crown and coke or Vodka and tonic

I've been lazy lately so... straight from the bottle
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 1:07:30 PM EST
Bacardi Rum and Coke.

The % depends on how social I need to be.

I prefer the Gold Rum to the dry,or clear colored rum.

Dry rum = bad taste in your mouth the next day.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 1:10:32 PM EST
Tequila and grapefruit juice...
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 1:11:39 PM EST
Bloody Mary or Maria (vodka or tequila)

Use good vodka or tequila. Stir in tomato juice, lemon juice, worchestershire sauce, tobasco, celery salt over ice stick in a celery stalk, a pcikle, a jalapeno pepper and 3 large olives and you're good to go.

Back it up with an ice cold imported lager, a few munchies and you'll be fine.

As you get a tast for it, you can ask for more whiskey, less sour.

There's also a little ditty that I became familar with in college:

One tequila
Two tequila
Three tequila
Floor.

Bear that in mind.

Drink lots of cheap liquor. Get the $12 handles of rum or vodka that come in plastic. Then, you will like and come to appreciate a cold beer.

Gentleman Jack and Coke.

Smooth, relaxing, and you can still give off a manly vibe.

Any drink with a color other than brown will make you look like a pansy.
