    There is a Bermuda dark rum called Black Seal. A jigger of that over the rocks with a squeeze of lime (to keep the scurvy away, of course) and, if you feel so inclined, a splash of tonic (for malaria, naturally). A great cooling summer drink. It gets very hot here in the South.

    It's the sugar, I think. Vodka seems to be the least debilitating the next day. Which makes sense, if ya think about it. The Russians needed an alcohol they could survive the frequent consumption of, because with their climate, how much else was there to DO?

    I'm a wimp, a dissapointment to my Irish name. I don't like beer at all and go for "fruity drinks". Malibu+pineapple, Sex on the Beach, Bay Breeze, Sea Breeze.

    I generally don't like tasting my alcohol. Which is why I don't drink much.

    if i plain wanna get hammerd i go with 1:1 jack and coke, it doesnt take long

    Tsk. If you really want to get hammered, the coke is just slowing you down. Hell, the glass is just slowing you down.

    I haven't drank in like 19 years. If someone would, please go get an Abita beer and drink it for me. It is brewed here in my home town, but since I don't drink anymore I didn't get an opportunity to taste one. LOL

    I'll throw in a couple of suggestions:

    The every popular Margharita, preferably with Anejo Patron Tequila (less of a hangover the next day).

    My other favorite summertime drink is Bombay Saphire and grapefruit juice. If you are thinking your stomach won't hurt the next day, think again. I never realized what a truly sour stomach was until after consuming 11 of these one night... ugh!

    Light on what? Down here "light beer" is low alcohol, but I remember hearing somewhere that "light beer" in the US is the diet version.

    I'm mostly a beer person (Coopers). Even went half-way down Manhattan to get a Pale Ale when I was travelling.
