Myers is the best dark rum made. It's too bad it's not more well known. Captain Morgan is much better at advertising, though.

Margi.

I forgot to mention, I really like akvavit. That's Scandinavian/Nordic snaps.

Well paired wine with food is a constant.

Beyond that, I go through phases.

These include good scotch, bourbons, tequilas, cognac. Can run the gamut.

Since a trip to Italy last fall, I've been into Negroni's.

I enjoy a good red wine, but I'm really not a wine drinker I adore Prosecco and Sundays I indulge. I also like a mimosa, B&B on a cold night. Other than that a dark beer is a Suday before and after drink.

A nice tall ice cold glass of milk with a piece of chocolate cake. After that, coffee with cream and sugar. I get some strange looks from wait people when they ask, "Would anyone like some drinks?" I just ask for the milk and tell them I am underage.

One of the things you are going to find as you get older and your list of meds get longer and longer, somewhere down the line, you are not going to be able to drink alcohol with them. You will see that little sticker on more and more of your prescription bottles. "Do not drink alcohol." Hopefully by that time you will be too senile to even care.

Just because I have never had a drink, most folks think I am totally against it with a vegeance. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I just can't stand the smell of it. Never could. As a result I never had the need to even try it. But for those folks who enjoy a drink, go for it. I can understand after a very trying day, you come home, sit down letting out a big breath of sigh and have a nice cold drink to sip on. By the time you finish it, you are ready to come to the dinner table and tackle any home problems. To all of you I say,

"Skol!" "Cheers!" and any other saying of your nationality. Enjoy.

I like most white wines, never red. I also enjoy a good gin martini on occasion, or a Captain Morgan spiced rum with coke if I want to stay awake like in Vegas.

My favorite drink of all though is "Steve's Remarkable Ice Tea". I drink it nearly all day long, every day. He makes it by the gallon with 3 black tea bags, 2 Tbs. of Earl Grey tea leaves, and 2 Tbs. of Truvia sweetener. Steep the teas in 2 cups of boiling water till room temp. Add the sweetener, strain it into a gallon container and fill with cold water. That is the most perfect Ice Tea you will ever drink.

I am a big fan of ice café au lait in warm weather. I make a double espresso; add some ice cubes; and then I fill the cup with cold milk. Oh yeah, that stuff is good. If you use sugar, add it before the ice cubes and stir.
