I’m not much of a drinker, but I will have a beer on occasion, though not very often. Corona, Miller Lite.
I have had Bailies Irish Cream.

Anyone have a favorite drink? Doesn’t have to be alcoholic, although a non alcoholic bar, would be boring. cheers

I love that town. I wasn't impressed the one time I had that drink though. It was really sweet. That was at Pat O'Brien's.

Yeah, it's a sweet drink; but best when it's sweet AND strong. Yeah, I miss New Orleans. It's been over 15 years since I was there.

Left to my own devices, I'll take a nice single malt Scotch. (Cragganmore 12 year, if possible).

In my early days, rye whiskey was rot gut stuff (or at least, what I was exposed to was). However, I've recently discovered Sagamore Rye, which is excellent!

Sorry to hear that. I went for my first time only a couple of years ago, and I absolutely loved it. I've been back twice since. I often say that it's a good thing I don't live closer, or I'd be there every month or more. As it is, it's a five or six hour drive, which is longer than just winging it.

I love coffee. I started drinking it quite late in the first year of my college. It was just a magic tool to start the morning after the next party and before classes in philosophy. After graduating from college, the habit of drinking coffee didn't disappear, but rather grew stronger. I now drink at least 3 cups of coffee per day. The last cup is necessarily a latte. Some people believe that coffee is bad for health, but on the contrary, I think that coffee is very healthy. This article describes some of the reasons why I think so. I really think that coffee well affects the state of the skin, raises the pressure and is the prevention of diabetes mellitus grade 2

I used to hate coffee; drank a lot of tea. Liked the smell of coffee, but not the taste. Then my oldest started working at a Starbucks, and would say, "I just learned to make a (XXXX)... try it!" Eventually I started liking it. Got my first coffee maker at 45. Generally, no more than 1 cup a day; maybe 2 on weekends.

But sometimes you need coffee, good coffee, strong coffee.

Not much on hard liquor, but my preference is a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvingnon, followed by a Heffeweizen or a good Pilsner or Lager, preferably German or maybe Czech. After that, I appreciate a good Bloody Mary. Sub Zero ice bar makes a Bacon Mary.....Bakon Vodka Bloody Mary complete with a strip of bacon.

hey Dan, just so your bartender knows that you are very knowledgeable about this topic, a Pilsner is a lager. There are only 2 types of beers, ales and lagers. Everything else is just a category. Cheers.
cheers

no, craft beers are still either an ale or a lager. Germans don't understand flavored beer, either. Belgians and Americans, not so much.

For my daughter's 21st birthday last month, we went to a Korean grill. She wanted a drink, so the waiter suggested "soju", which he aid was pretty much Korean vodka. They flavor it by putting a popsicle in a carafe of soju. Pretty decent. Not too strong, but just enough.

The next week I saw it for sale in a local store. Darned if he wasn't right - it's made from fermented SWEET potato.

German Rieslings (US ones, especially from CA have too much alcohol percentage, which overrides the subtle flavors).
Occasionally a good Cabernet Franc
Most of the really good moderate priced German Rieslings never get exported, the home folk there drink them.
