BillN gave me the idea for this thread. As many of us live all over the world, I'd love to know what adult beverages people like.

I'll start:

Beer: Newcastle or Sam Adams Double Bock
Mixed Drink: Margarita
Liquor: Tequila and Rum

well as a scotsman living in paris with a california girlfriend and about to move to Belgium my drinking tastes and opportunities are interest

definately a red wine man... st emilion works for me though am up for anything big and fruity

single malt of course... Islay in particular.. laphroig, talisker and Aardbeg

other half introduced me to Patron tequila... definately for sipping as opposed to slamming

Beer... well guiness in ireland is hard to beat, but a 80/- at Diggers bar in Edinburgh is up there

as for belgium.. well there seems to be a whole world of beer and geniver to explore.. though i am concerned about the size of the measures

Red Wine: Petite Sirah, Cabernets (Sauvignons & Francs), Carmenere.
Fine Kentucky Bourbons and Single Malt Scotch. I have clients/friends in Kentucky and the UK who send me a bottle a year of very good, and usually unobtainable examples of each.

mmm...Patron. Cabo Wabo(Sammy Hagar's brand) is pretty good too.

I'm not a huge wine drinker. I do like a good Reisling every now and again. As far as red's go, I'm not too found of the oakiness.

And as far as pictures, I enjoyed a Newcastle with my GF last weekend.

I like Corona, Kirin and Kingfisher beers, in the summer. As for a typical glass of wine, or two, I like Jacob Creek Chardonnay and if someone else is paying for it, I'd love a bottle of Mer Soleil Chardonnay or Cloudy Bay... and a really good red wine that is too far beyond my price point will be OK.:drinks:

P.S. Don, The Other Don and you have somewhat similar tastes.:wink:

Yaaay Diggers! Miss those Edinburgh bars. So many stories to tell....

Such a Scot to impune the Belgian measure though LOL. The beer is extra strong so you won't even notice after a few that you are getting them short.

I like Corona and lime during the summer. Good stuff when sitting out on the beach.

Red wine all the way - burgundy for choice but a really good chianti is all right too. In summer, a mojito. I grow mint just so I can make them.
