Question

Ok, as a slut for drinking, I'm getting tired of drinking the same stuff... and I drink a lot of different liquors.  Not related to GPHM really... at all tbh, but what's a mixed drink or straight drink that you can give me??? 

I know enough straight liquor that I have literally died from and mixed drinks that are really good, so give me a less common go to drink you like!!!

I need something to subside me from drinking home-brew and vodka/ whiskey lately.   Give me suggestions on great mixed or straight drinks that make you have a good time!!!  

 

(looking at you Deadwing and Paul specifically, but everyone is encouraged to participate)... Need something new to be an alcoholic to hahah!!!

 

Hope you all contribute (no fireball, Vodka,  or Bailey's though, I have drank enough to know what it is good with lol).  Cheers y'all!!!!

We need more off-topic posts around here. 

I am pretty boring when it comes to booze, tbh.  My tastes are similar to what you listed above.  My typical go-to is American whiskey/bourbon or beer.  I've been getting away from beer recently as I tend to like the darker, hoppy beers, but recently drinking one of those feels like I just ate a 32 oz. prime rib on top of a pound of pasta.  My biggest decision is usually whether to drink the bourbon with coke, ginger ale or straight.  If I want to mix things up I'll have a vodka and sprite - or vodka and red bull.

If made right, an Old Fashioned is really good.  I just never have all the ingredients and don't like spending more than 15 seconds preparing my drink.  If no one is looking, I'll add a splash of cranberry and wedge of lime to my vodka-sprite.  And maybe once a month I'll have a glass of red wine with a meal (but not something I would drink without food and I don't think this is what you're going for).

Tequila and rum are also good, but haven't had either of them in years.  Amaretto, Sambuca and Drambuie are really good, but after a few shots you get sick of em.  The only things I absolutely would not drink are gin and white wine... or something fruity with umbrellas in it, unless I'm on a tropical island somewhere, in which case it would be the first thing I ordered.

Those are definitely some good suggestions. I've always enjoyed drinking my liquor straight, but lately I've been getting bad hangovers, so i figured it's time to shake things up Haha.

 

Also Paul, you said you hate gin, but have you had empress purple gin? That stuff is really good imo. Gin isn't something I enjoy regularly, but I tend to drink it on hot summer days

Good European absinthe (I like German, i.e. Eichelberger) - or Slivovice (Czech plum liquor).

Fair warning - either is not for everyone. You drink a little cup, then another little cup, and very suddenly (and irreversibly) your night becomes a lot more interesting.

Definitely like those suggestions.  I've had Slivovice, and I definitely know the experience of having too much of it.  Been a while since I've had either though, so may have to hop back on that bandwagon haha

If you're a whisky drinker and got some cash to spend I'd suggest Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Bowmore single malt is great, but also pricey. If you want something to enjoy more often, Famous Grouse is a good choice.

 

From mixed drinks, I always choose Jack n' Coke. Better taste result than any rum I've ever tried with coke. I know rum n' coke is a thing, but I like my rum straight.

 

From rums I like to go for the smoother ones, which means spiced mixes. Captain Morgan Spiced Gold and Negrita Golden Spice are both great ones to down while going through FA's during off season. 

 

From whisky liquors Southern Comfort is the way to go. Sweet and easy.

 

I know my poisons 🤪

Ooooh I love Johnnie walker blue label!!! The other whiskey's are good too but idk if I can afford to drink those too often lol.  Honestly I'm not a picky drinker so I like all those suggestions you gave.  Currently I've been drinking stolichnaya vodka with homemade raspberry juice.  The juice is kinda syrupy so the vodka offsets it and it gets a flavour similar to a vodka cranberry, but with a hint of raspberry in it.  As for your rum suggestions, I love captain Morgan but I think I wanna venture into some rums that I don't drink as often.  I love Kraken rum (try it if you haven't) and legendario (sipping rum), so you should definitely try those.  Negrita isn't as common in these parts of Canada, but it is definitely a rum that I like.

 

So far though, I am liking how this thread is going!
