I take medications that prohibit me from drinking alcohol for the most part. Still, if I could have anything I'd have one of these 2 drinks.

Captain 'n Coke



Martini: Extra Dirty

Blended stuff isn't always bad lol.

Green label, adelphi and VAT69 is great once sat after a while.

EDIT: Don't forget BNJ

Whisky for me, or Stout or Porter!

Although a decent bottle of Red (Rioja) or a drop of Port.

Get some whisky man!

Yeah, I would probably take a bottle of famous grouse with some coke to a house party, but otherwise single malt.

Meh drinking is not good for me.

Whenever I drink it always ends up with me passing out and other people telling me how ****ed up I was.

Back to the OT. When I start off the drinking generally its some kind of bourbon, its sweeter then Scottish whiskys and goes real well with kinnie.

EDIT and Margaritas because they get you ****faced without tasting any alcohol.

The bad thing about jäger is when you vomit after drinking it even if it was only one shot everything you throw up is black and that's disturbing.

@ Airbud Crown is the sweet nectar of life but have you tried the Crown XR it is the best Canadian Whiskey I have ever let past my lips.
