    So with this being the "Pub", I thought I would see what the Guru's amongst us prefer when it comes to drinks! Although I am primarily a beer drinker myself, I decided to make this poll about liquor. There are just too many different types of beer to get into here lol.

    So lets hear it, what is your poison of choice? I am a whiskey/bourbon fan myself, and I especially like Makers Mark Kentucky bourbon. A good friend of mine recommended Basil Hayden's, but I have yet to try it (to expensive! lol)

    Cheers! :cheers:

    Vodka!

    Cheap when I mix vodka and Red Bull, better stuff for a martini.
    Bloody Mary's are nice too.

    never much cared for beer, and when I was a kid(14-15) I tried drinking whiskey with an older crowd who were trying to hurt me.I chugged kesslers from the bottle until there were 13 air bubbles...woke up in the hospital.They pumped my stomach, and I had alcohol poisoning.I'm 40 now, and to this day, even the smell of whiskey makes me sick.

    Whiskey and cognac.

    I love Islay single malts. I bought a bottle of Bowmore last week that I'm currently enjoying the hell out of. But I also love Ardbeg, Lagavulin and the new Smokehead. But I'll drink pretty much any single malt.

    As for cognacs, nothing really beats a Braastad XO Superior for me. Delicious!

    I've also become somewhat of a beer enthusiast over the last year or so, but that's beside the point of this thread I suppose.

    Nice. I was just thinking I should have included an option for Wine drinkers... probably would get more overall votes. Oh well, this poll is for the hardcore people lol

    Martini, also very good!

    Vodka, strait glass with ice and lemon.

    Rum, great taste.

    I love Rum...... straight up.... Captain Morgan spiced rum is the veritable shiznits. It's the only alcohol that I could forget myself and drink too much of. :)
    I also like vodka, but usually in mixed drinks, or jello shots... martini's are great too.
    Hard liquor is the way to go, that soft stuff is for *edited*, *edited*, *edited* :D

    I like to drink Vodka, Tq, Whiskey/bourbon, and what not for flavor...but I have to say the "drink of choice" is Everclear, because at nearly 100% alcohol for about 15-18 dollars it lasts the longest and can be mixed with nearly everything. I can also drink less of it for the same effect so I drink less mix (pop/juice/whatever) not only also making it cheaper, but lowering the calories for whatever ever level of intoxication.

    I like Sky Vodka the best, followed probably by Smirnoff. It wasn't a choice but my favorite straight drink is Jagermiester, I can fill a cup up and drink it plain like water. I've had really expensive Tequila before ($300-500 a bottle) so I like that stuff just plain slow drinking, but otherwise like TQ in margaritas (either on the rocks or blended). For wiskey's/bourbons I like Jeramiah Weed, Makers Mark, and my new recent favorite Knob Creek...which tastes like a better MM. Crown Royal is alright, but tad expensive.

    Being 40 now, I'm a pussy when it comes to the "hard-stuff". I'm strictly beer and wine now.

    ahh, now we have some beer in the conversation. If you like Guinness, have you ever tried Belhaven Scottish Stout? Its excellent. If you like Guinness, I can almost guarantee you would like that. I personally prefer it over the big G.

    I prefer water over all my choices. However, if I drink alcohol, mine would be Rolling Rock beer (American domestic) or Römer Pilsener (German).

    Most drank would be vodka then whiskey (Jack Daniels anyway)

    But drink of the moment would be Captain Morgan Spicey + Coke
