It seems that it's been far too long since the hard stuff has come up, so here's yet another thread polling your favorites (sans poll). I love a really good scotch. In fact, that reminds me of a really bad joke: I like my scotch like my women...12 years old and all mixed up with coke. :scowl: Of course, I'd never ruin a good scotch like that. My poor-man's drink, at least when I used to be a soda-drinker, was Captain Morgan spiced rum and coke (not just any rum: it's got to be the Captain). Too many people ruin a good rum n' coke by adding too much rum. Get a tall glass, add lots of ice, pour 2 (two) "gurgles" of rum. That's key: just say "gurgle-gurgle," pour that much, and you're done. Then fill the rest of the way with coke, and you're good. For the soft stuff, nothing (yes, nothing) beats Guinness.
