I don't drink much alcoholic drinks, but if I do it's usually Kahlua (straight up, no cream)
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

My favorites change all the time and there are different categories. I might have a favorite hard drink, but then there is beer which is a different category in itself.

My drink of choice right now is Grey Goose on the rocks. I enjoy a good gin and tonic during the summer. Dark and Stormys are nice sitting in the sun by my pool too. Mojitos were good for a while, but I think I am over those now. A dirty vodka martini is near the top of my list as well.

In general, I only drink stuff I can see through.

Gin and Tonic and bloody marys (the 'see through' exception) in the summer.
Crown Royal on the rocks in the winter.

Red wine and beer all year.

long time favorite is Kahlua and cream

don't keep much liquor or would make Long Island Iced teas!

just keep a variety of single malt and blended whisky/whiskey's on hand, and an occasional bourbon

At home I usually dirnk vodka gimlets (vodka and lime juice). Drink that year 'round. Occasionally a dirty martini. Beer is usually something I enjoy in the summer, with the exception being some nice dark Irish brew on St. Patrick's Day.

Also enjoy good scotch and bourbon and appreciate a nice Cabernet Sauvignon.

When eating out, I'll often order a Galliano stinger or Manhattan.

I do not care for "cocktails," except for an occasional VERY dry Martini (Bombay), or when in the Caribbean, Mai Tai's.

My preferred alcoholic beverage is wine. In no particular order, Champagne/sparkling; red, white, rose (NOT blush!). On wintry evenings I love good Cognac and Armagnac, Ports, Sherries and Madeiras.

Occasionally I'm in the mood for top quality rum, bourbon or Scotch, all w/o mixers... straight up, one cube, or sipped like brandy.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
