Topic: What is your favorite adult beverage?

Posted under Off Topic

It's Independence day, the holiday that's best celebrated by setting off explosives, having barbecues and of course, getting drunk off your ass, so I thought I'd make this post to ask you guys what your preferred poison is (if any).
I've always been a big fan of Jägermiester, I usually drink it straight from the bottle but for special occasions, I'll get some Red Bull and make Jägerbombs. I picked up some Jäg and Red Bull for today because what better way to celebrate America's independence than with german booze?

I tend to drink white wines, usually some kind of sweet riesling

Room temperature bourbon on the rocks. It melts the ice and brings out the sweetness/flavors from the oak barrels. Unless you buy something really nice, the more ice the better.

Milk.

It's a beverage that can be exclusively produced by adults. In fact, images of the production of milk are generally restricted to adults only.

Seriously though, I really don't drink alcohol. But I do drink about half a gallon of milk a day.

Smirnoff Ice Green Apple, Angry Orchard Green Apple and Crisp Apple, and that one berry hard cider from BJ's

Diet caffeine free Dr Pepper.

It's adult because it took me all my life to learn that I'm sensitive to caffeine.

Water or Dr. Pepper.

Does it put you to sleep, too?

In a way, yeah. Turns out it was making my night insomnia super bad and so I was falling asleep a lot during the day no matter how much I drank during the day. I still fall asleep during the day but the sleep attacks have gone down.

It was also making my anxiety worse. Ever since I stopped caffeine my fight/flight/freeze response to stresses has dropped dramatically.

Scotch, neat, smoky. Lagavulin 16, Talisker Storm, and Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength are favorites.

Also a fan of Proper 12 Irish whiskey if I want something sweeter.

My favorite is strongbow artisanal blend, which is apple cider. Any cider really it's all pretty good.

The good stuff.

The "Schwarzwälder Kirsch"(Black forest cherry) cocoa I mix myself sometimes
- Hot cocoa, whipped cream and some cherry spirit, in reference to this cake

Otherwise Irish coffee,pure Baileys, Mojitos or Jägerbomben (Jägermeister+Red Bull)

Fully filtered water, perhaps with some lime or lemon juice. Grapefruit juice is often a great comfort drink. As a life-long teetotaler, I don't drink or cook with alcohol.

Cold, filtered water with lemon is something I wake up thinking about in the middle of the night. Thank you for reminding me to buy lemons :D

for flavor I go chartreuse. For drinking for a buzz (don't drink much anymore) I go with spiced rum and root-beer. I prefer being high to being drunk though and even then
I keep an even keel.

The way I see it is simple. if you are drinking to forget or feel better about how bad things are...well you're doing it wrong. drinking is good when you are good and a bad idea if you are in a bad place.

Not to tell others how to live just what I have found over the years.

Another Strongbow fan here.

Also a fan of coffee liqueur (Kamora preferred) and Irish cream however... And if I'm in a bar, vodka & cran.

In bulk, the Not Your Father's brand soda alcohol. At gatherings, I enjoy Jack Daniels with a fruit-flavor mixer. I don't like sour or bitter alcohol, and I don't drink often enough to list any fancy names...

*edit*
I still like malts. Basically alcohol that wants to be soda, stuff like Jack Daniel's Black Jack Cola or their Cherry-Limeade, or similar products like Mike's Hard(er) Lemonade. I can drink the hard stuff, but I don't like that noticeable aftertaste.

Mango juice. Used to be beer but I have had to make a terrible decision to stop. Again.

Having an ice cream milkshake right now makes me wonder: has anyone ever tried spiking a milkshake?

Kahlúa and milk is really nice, as is Irish cream and milk.

Vodka and milk is nice too.

I think it goes farther than that. Based on what they name, you can really get a sense of how long someone's been drinking, how often, their mindset about alcohol, and even a little of their socioeconomic status.

Previously, my favorite drink was tequila, I adored it, often it led to bad consequences. It all started small and then it all started to get worse, but when I noticed it was too late, you can say that I became an alcoholic. I was saved by my father who helped me with support and found me a good medicine https://www.fordrinkers.org/antabuse-disulfiram.php kooroe helped me get out of this pit.

When I started drinking, I simply decided to go balls to the wall and try everything under the sun. From the fru-fru Seagram's to Everclear. To this day I can't properly answer that question.

As of current, I am attempting to try everything listed in Yakuza 0. I am currently hung up on Chestnut schochu. Current events make its acquisition without excess spending difficult.

lol you guys should've heard some of the reactions of the southern liquor store clerks when I tried to have it ordered "Scho-what?"

This is either a huge insult or a backhanded compliment.

Voda I guess. I've never drink it before I turned 21. And it's quite hard to drink but then you feel like God..

Why does everyone have to sling around their barely subtle heckling when someone doesn't conform to the mindless and stale group? What the hell are you so scared of? Are you afraid that not drinking alcohol might catch on? Is our non dependence that intimidating to you? Does it make you insecure?

Also, I am twenty-four years of age. You will have to take my word for it because I am not willing to show you my drivers license.

That could have been said nicer.

Dr. Pepper, I suppose. I'd say Mountain Dew, but they changed the formula over here and it tastes terrible now.

Alcohol? That's for cooking, not for drinking.
