DH and I were trying to remember, thinking at the Dallas airport Chili's, we had a delicious raspberry vodka and lemonade cocktail.

I like a lemon drop or a bellini in summer, winter I love hot buttered rum.

dry wine, IPA, scotch ... not in order of preference, and not all at once either :)

Oh my gosh that sounds good. I like long island iced tea, but I don't drink that too often. I am sure I would live radiated vodka and iced tea!!! I also like rum and coke.

Let's see. In the summer it's a nice cool glass of dry white wine (Pinot Grigio is a favorite), or a tall gin & tonic (with either Tanqueray, Bombay, or Seagram's Lime Twist gin), or a well-made Margarita with 100% agava tequila.

In the cooler months, a nice dry room-temp red wine, or a Bacardi rum & Diet Coke (you do know, of course, that the calories in the rum are automatically cancelled out by the Diet Coke. . . . lol!). And for dessert or a late afternoon "snack", a nice English Ruby Port with ripe pears & a good blue cheese &/or aged Stilton or cheddar.

Mostly I drink iced tea to unwind, but now and then I love a Mai Tai or any fruity rum drink.
