    Name your tipple

    I'm always up for trying new drinks/co.cktails, so what do you people swear by? I tend to go for:

    • Most Lager/Beers
    • Vodka & Orange
    • JD & Coke
    • Any good Whiskey on the rocks
    • Mojito co.cktail
    • Any dark Rum&Coke


    What do you guys drink?

    Nick

    (excuse the . in co.cktail, the profanity filter is working overtime)

    I agree with you on vodka and orange (not to mention Tanqueray and tonic), but lately I've been trying to avoid the hard stuff for beer and wine ... does anybody have a favorite light beer? Miller High Life Light, which is almost unknown and unadvertised compared to Miller Lite, isn't actually bad in a summer-day swilling way, but the light versions of Amstel, Sam Adams, etc. break my heart.

    We've not yet caught onto the light beer's yet in the UK, but I think they're slowly emerging. The only light beer I've tried is Michelob which is fairly nice. Otherwise I'm happy drinking real Ales/Brash lagers until the beer belly starts appearing.

    Beer here!

    Oh, and in case I forgot to mention it, beer.
    Things equal to other things are not necessarily the same.

    Is that an NY beer? I've been on the London Pride tonight, but there are a fair few around here which I know and love.

    sammy's is a yorkshire beer, owned by some drongos and run as a tax loss. nice beer though, and they are sold in the sammy smith pubs at about 1.30 a pint.
    trout are freshwater fish and have underwater weapons
    trout are very valuable and immensely powerful
    keep away from the trout

    Yeah it's pure yorkie all the way, flat cap and all. But it's the best that's ever crossed my palate. I tend toward rougher beers that aren't polished and refined until they're tame. I like a beer that attacks the taste buds. That one does.

    Try Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum + Sprite (or 7UP) on the rocks. Also... get a pint glass and fill it with a blue WKD, an orange Reef and a shot of Blue Aftershock. It fits perfectly, is luminous green and tastes like Jelly Beans.

    Me, I like "summer day" beers or dark rum + coke.

    just social drinking would be budweiser, even that new bud select is alright, although it is a very very light beer

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

    Capt. Morgan's on the rocks is very nice, sort of a vanilla quality to it. Nasty hangovers though.
