This thread is great. <3
I've been known as a booze-hound in the past and have suffered through alcoholism...but now I'd like to think of myself as more of a "connoisseur".
Whereas I used to drink several very strong drinks every night, now I only drink maybe
twice a month.
me some mixed drinks.
My favorites so far are mudslides:
A Washington Apple: http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink8093.html
a good-ol' strawberry margarita:
so, essentially anything that tastes more yummy than it does alcoholic. I don't like drinks that are just alcohol on top of alcohol...they gotta have some mixers in there..like coffee or fruit/fruit-juice.
However, from time to time (mainly when we don't have the money to go out for mixed-drinks or make our own) I'll settle for the bottled margarita/daiquiri or Leinenkugel's sunset wheat beer.
mentioned, it definitely has a beer-taste at first, once you've already had a few drinks, it tastes like fruity pebbles.
So I usually like to use it as a "wind down" drink...after I've had a couple mixed-drinks but still want something to sip on.
I like sake...esp. warmed up and sipping on it while relaxing in a hot tub or something...but I can't say I really enjoy
the taste, per se.. (unless it's the fuji-apple sake. mmmm...)
but I do enjoy the buzz that it gives b/c Snemmy
is definitely right,
it comes on fast and makes you feel good, but leaves easy and fast with no hangovers.
I haven't had a lot of experience with various wines....mostly just the cheap stuff...
but there is
one type of wine that Ban
and I love, and that's PLUM WINE
gets this kind:
b/c it's about the only kind that our town carries..but if we go to a larger liquor store to buy it,
We usually prefer Choya Umeshu:
it has little Japanese plums in the bottom!
