    What's your poison?

    I like a Negroni: 1oz. Campari, 1oz. sweet vermouth, 1oz. gin, slice of orange.

    Cheers!

    Tequila Sunrise or Long Island Iced Tea. Depends on if it's going to be just one or two, or all night.

    Caucasians are good.

    Cuba Libre' is good on a hot day.

    Sammy Smith Oatmeal Stout for beer in a bottle.

    That's another fav! Dude, you should try Larceny. I have consumed a lot of Jameson's, and I am betting, like myself you'll love Larceny. Sipping on the rocks, is better than slipping...

    For us, cocktail season started in March.

    Of last year. ;)


    Our current favorite is the Man o' War, but Aviations, Manhattans, Last Words, and Martinis are also on the go-to list.

    I don't do mixed drinks often. I mostly stick with beer or wine. Sometimes, a good bourbon is nice.

    Mainly a wine/social beer drinker, but on a hot evening it is sangria on the rocks. Gifted by top of the line sipping tequila multiple times a year, I make a killer margarita for my wife and guests. Otherwise, Maker's Mark - clean.

    Haven't tried that one.
    I have tried Tullamore Dew, Red Breast, Old Bushmills, the more aged Jameson product(s) and always go back to the original Jameson's.
    I'll look for it.....

    Been doing whiskey sours instead of beer when playing music with one of my old friends. Significantly cheaper than (good) beer, and easier on the old plumbing as well. Win win.
