    Fab drinkers - What's your favorite drink?

    I'm really digging the watermelon Smirnoff Twist right now.

    Yep. The age-old combination of water, malted barely, hops, and yeast still do it for me. Otherwise, it's a plain margarita on the rocks.

    HAHAHA kinda like "coffee flavored coffee" right? ;)

    Fruity chick drinks like the Smirnoff Twisted this and that doesn't really do it for me. It's all about the beer, baby. (And not Heineken)

    Umm, the question wasn't if you like beer, hard liqour, ect. It was what your favorite flavoured alchoholic beverage (i.e. Bacardi, Smirnoff, Mike's Hard Lemonade, Zima, Skyy, ect.) :rolleyes: :p ;)

    Smirnoff Twisted Green Apple is pretty good.
     
  16. Those Woodchuck Pear drinks are pretty tasty. But just try to get liquored up on those... Ack.

    Beam and Coke or Diet...

    I don't like many of the fruity wine cooler type drinks but let me tell ya...the Bartles and Jaymes Lucious Blackberry wine coolers are really good. That's the only one of that type of drink I ever buy.

    A pint for me please :hyper: I love dry hopped beers.

    Other than beer: straight rye, straight rum or a margarita. Not one of the slushy ones, a real margarita: 3 parts tequila (preferably blanco), 2 parts contreau (triple sec in a pinch), 1 part lime.

    Long story: I never really liked margaritas until I went to Norman OK for work. Had lunch at a tex mex restaurant. The tequila list was over three pages :eek:

    So I thought I had to get a margarita, so I got one. It was ok. So I ordered another, but I asked for less ice. The waiter perked up "Oh, you want our special then". It was very expensive, but I was on an expense account, so sure.

    OH MY GOD it was good. I have never found a restaurant in Ottawa that makes a good margarita. The above recipe comes through a lot of trial and error to try to match how I remember that margarita in Norman.

    I'm not much of a drinker, but when I do it's usually Mikes Hard Lemonade.
