go with the black label and rocks.

Rocks?!  And you call yourself Scottish?  While a History major, one of my profs said the Irish are credited with the discovery of whiskey, and about a year later I visited Ireland.  I wasn’t a whiskey drinker but being in the home of the stuff I made the effort to have a drink.  In a pub in Cork the publican recognized my American accent and leaned closer with a hard look and asked, “Will you be having that on the rocks, or as GAAAAHHHHD intended it?”  At the age of 20 I was already an atheist but I caught his drift and asked him to serve it as he would anyone else.  He poured about two fingers of whiskey into an 8 oz. glass and another two fingers with water.  It was good and I have had it that way since.  With ice it’s too strong in the beginning and too weak at the end, but with water it’s the same drink at each sip.

Is there an orange peel and a worm in the bottom of the bottle?

My adult beverage of choice is Power’s Irish whiskey.  Neat.  Jameson may sell more internationally, but Power’s is the best selling Irish whiskey in Ireland, and for good reason.

Nothing. I never drink (or even smoke dope) in the month of January.

I do, however, eat bacon in January to make up for it.

No, that’s Mescal, this is upscale juice. wink  About 30 years ago a woman I knew asked me to bring back a bottle of Mescal with a worm in it from a trip to Arizona.  I did this, wondering what she wanted it for.  Later she told me she had drunk some with a guy she didn’t like and then coyly said: “real men eat the worm.”  Which he proceeded to do.  Evil woman!!!

Glenlivet on the rocks with a splash of filtered water.

And Bolthouse carrott juice.

But not together.

Glenmornagie or Oban, straight up.  I don’t like to drown good scotch.

Don Julio straight up - salt and lemon or lime a bonus, but not necessary.

Canadian Club and Coke, or Crown Royal and Coke.

Strongbow Cider - refreshing cold, and 3 or 4 pints make a nice evening of drinking.

Pretty much any product from Big Rock Brewery - an artisan microbrewery in my region.  (My fav’s are McNally’s, Traditional Ale, and Honey Brown.)

I am crestfallen.

This thread has been resurrected. January is a good time to renew one’s vows to strong drink. Tonight I had Blue Moon beer with my Chilean Sea Bass at the local fish place. The sea bass there is the best I’ve had.  Now, back to Barefoot cabernet with my internet.

I like Pepsi Max because it brings maximum flavor to the taste buds with zero calories, and it doesn’t have a cancer warning on it.

In all seriousness, I could never choose an alcoholic beverage because there are so many of them. Depending on the restaurant, you may get a wine list with over 70 choices. I like it simple, and my go to drink will always be a coke/pepsi with cherry grenadines (Ithe syrupy stuff). Without ice. Question for you experts though…why doesn’t anyone mention gin? It’s always vodka or wine, sometimes beer.

That’s a Roy Rogers.  7-Up with grenadine is a Shirley Temple.

You’ll get as many answers to that question as there are people answering it.  It’s a personal preference.  A gin and tonic is one of my favorite drinks, but I don’t like gin in anything else, with the exception of a new-to-me gin, Hendrick’s; I can drink a martini made with that.

I like Pepsi Max.

Be careful drinking too much soda.  It is not good for you at all.  Really.
