I'll go first.

 

I like Jack Daniels on ice,usually in fall and winter and BEEFEATER MARTINIS before dinner,and in wicked hot weather, Cape Codders . I do not like any of those sweet drinks and or phony martinis, and never have had a thirst for beer.

Drink beer when golfing or fishing. Bear Republic Red Rocket or anything Deschutes Brewery.

 

I like most wine as well,but never have played real golf, and I cannot believe I forgot my fav affordable champagne as I just bought a case, VEUVE CLIQUOT.

 

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

 

Now that and lobster, well, it works for me. : )

I'm not a big drinker, at least not for effect - me and God came to an agreement a bunch of years ago following a particularly rambunctious St. Patty's day celebration - I won't ever get completely smashed again, He'll never hammer me with another brutal, are those my socks floating in the toilet?, two day long hangover.

 

I still drink, and fairly often but it never goes much farther then a small glass of wine or a beer with dinner. Out with friends I might crank it up to 3 cocktails in an evening. As I've gotten older, alcohol has changed from the centerpiece of the party to an accent point on an event. For example:

 

A nice bottle of wine, with cheese, sausage and bread while relaxing outside with the wife on a picnic blanket under a big shady tree.

 

Mmmmmm........ beer. I love beer, real beer, not that Coors Light/Budweiser crap.

 

Beer = liquid bread

 

Preferably a Porter or English Ale around the fireplace at hunting camp or a ski lodge, or a crisp pilsner on the dock after a day on a boat.

 

An icy cold gin and tonic with lots of lime hanging by the pool on a scorching hot day.

 

In my book it's pretty hard to top any of those scenarios cwm12.gif

...as described in Hemingway's Islands in the Stream...

 

Cold Gordon's Gin

Coconut Water*

Fresh Squeezed Lime

Angostura Bitters

 

Fill glass with ice, squeeze a half a lime over the cubes.

 

Pour in gin and coconut water in your preferred ratio.

 

Shake in bitters until the cocktail is the color of rust.

 

Enjoy best summertime cocktail on planet.

 

*If you're not Puerto Rican, you probably don't know

what coconut water is. It is the water from the inside

of a young green coconut. It is mildy sweet, and does

not really taste like coconut.

Me.

 

Wine - Mostly mid-level Syrahs. Also toss in a fair amount of Bordeaux, US Pinots, and Muscdets.

 

Single Malt Scotch and a good dry martini are also occasionally found in a glass in front of me.

 

I rarely drink beer outside of the beach and sporting events.

Summer is usually Cabo Reposado or Milagro Reposado with a beer.

Flor De Cana 7 year is also quite tasty.

Wine, depends on my mood but St. Francis Old Vine Zin is my favorite.

 

Winter, Johnny Black or Green on the rocks.

 

Jager is for anytime.
