This topic has come about due to a discussion on another thread. It seems more at home here then in the Jesters Court.

So share with us what you like to drink and your sources for such happy libations!

The Jolly Scott ale is the closest thing I can find to McEwan ale on this side of the pond without paying an arm and a leg for it!

I'm far from skilled when it comes to alchoholic drinks. So far though, the only beer I've found drinkable is also the only non-US beer I've tried. Guinness. Don't let it get warm though. If it is something with food though, set me up with a good semi-dry red wine of some sort wink.gif

Pizza and seafood-any kind of beer, preferably Amstel Light or Molson Golden.

Steaks or pasta with red sauce-a decent merlot or shiraz.

Poultry, pork and pasta with white sauce-whatever white wine we have in the house.

I'm not much of a wine drinker, but I prefer reds to whites when I do have wine. My mom's a white wine person.

ahhhhh with food of the grilled nature i prefer a good mini brewery beer... sam adams has got some good stuff right now i have their winter ale.....i also like bass and harp, very nice and light to wash down burgers or brats..... for steak i would prefer a nice merlot..... fish or chicken i really like cold sauvignon blanc..... mmmmmmm

i will not desecrate a guinness with food that to me is a sit down and drinking beer enjoyed strictly on its own merits.

evening sippers.... in the winter i prefer warm brandy in a small snifter, presently i am drinking korbel x/tra smooth... in the summer i like jamesons irish whiskey......

footnote... this makes me sound like i imbibe heavily but actually i probably average about 2-3 drinks a week including beer.... sometimes more but that is where it would average. i drink only for the pure enjoyment it adds to some foods or to an evening of relaxing....

Sláinte and drink responsibly beer_mug.gif

My favorite summer drink is gin and tonic with a twist of lime and a sprig of mint... ah the good ol days of summer BBQ....

Any good beer or ale, no BUD, Schlitz or Miller that is just urine in a can to me!

You never really buy beer you just rent it LOL!

Wine: A good Sherry such as Dry Sack, or a good Burgundy, or a good Sauturne, or a good Mediera make any meal grand in my opinion!

White or red it does not matter , just what tastes good to you and your guests.

I finally made it over here!

I love a dry red wine like a Merlot or Chianti, preferrably Ruffino or Bellagio. I drink it when I eat Italian food.

I love a dry white wine, but I don't know any names of them right off hand that I could tell you.

Beer? Well, I like Killian Red, Becks, Bass, Dos Equis and used to drink Coors Lite and Miller Lite to cut calories. Now that I am on a diet, I am not supposed to drink any of it. sad.gif

Won't hurt me to try some of these others you all are recommending though!

Here is a drink that has roots long ago and far away....it takes some time to make but it is well worth the wait!!!

Recipe Name: SHRUB
Category: SPIRITS
Serves: 12

SOURCE OLD HAND WRITTEN RECIPE FROM 18TH CENTURY ARCHIEVE

two quarts of brandy
juice of five lemons
the peels of two
half a nutmeg
three pints of white wine
pound and a half of sugar

Take two quarts of brandy, and put it in a large bottle, adding to it the juice of five lemons, the peels of two, and half a nutmeg; stop it up, let it stand three days, and add to it three pints of white wine, and a pound and a half of sugar; mix it, strain it twice through a flannel, and bottle it up. It is a pretty wine, and a cordial.


This was General Bradock's Favorite drink.

CR, you're not supposed to drink the whole batch by yourself, surely. Supposed to fix that when a few of us are around to help out wink.gif

Hallo Cu Dubh! Bet you can't get that here in the states though, eh?

I read on the net today that a glass of malt whisky is actually better for your health than red wine! It has much more anti-oxidants and can help keep from developing cancer. Remarkable! I don't drink the stuff, but I might try! Wonder how many calories that would be? unsure.gif
