Which is why I stick to beer

That's my problem. I guzzle my drinks. So, liquor goes down too fast. Which makes Rocklobster go down too fast.

Scotch and water in the winter, vodka and ice tea with a splash of lemonade in the summer, wine anytime.

Picking a favorite drink is like picking a favorite food to me. There are too many I love. Gin and tonic is what I have been my drink the past few days. I Love a good beer. Casa Noble anejo tequila is like drinking gold. I am in the process of learning to appreciate scotch. Grey Goose or Belvadere on the rocks at an affair is nice. I could go on and on.

A good flavorful beer (so nothing made by Bud, Miller, Coors or their international equivalents)

There are styles to go with every food or any situation

I like any kind of dry white wine anytime. I can't do red wine at all unless I want a splitting headache.
In the summer I like Coke and Captain Morgan with lemon.

In the winter, there's nothing like a Hot Buttered Rum.....here's a recipe.

Happy New Year with Hot Buttered Rum

This sounds complicated, but it's not. I mix equal parts of cranberry, grape and blueberry juice into a container. Then I mix that, 50%-50% with Port wine. Get it ice cold and drink it on ice on a hot summer day.

Simply refreshing, yummy and not strong enough to nail me. The port is 18%, so the finished drink is 9%. Still strong enough to mellow anyone out, but not a stumbling-slobber-maker.

For a hard drink, Vodka and Blueberry juice on ice. I can and do hurt myself with that one. Even better with 150 proof grain alcohol.
