In the winter, Pinot Noir ... In the summer, beer or a dry white like Pinot Blanc.

Well, I am far from being a Yuppie. I like a can of ice cold Miller Lite, 12oz. not 10oz., so I know I am not a redneck.

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.
Yum, Vodka and port, love both! Cosmopolitan! Could do with one of those right now but after 2 I'm more than a little relaxed
The one drink I can't stomach is Gin and Tonic, never developed a taste for it.
Prefer Vodka Martini's as well.

Wine. Red or white, dry or sweet... it all depends on the circumstance.

My "recent recipe discussions" column lists What is your favorite alcoholic..., and all I could think of was Crazy Guggenheim on The Jackie Gleason Show and Foster Brooks on the Dean Martin Show. But my all time favorite was Sidney Miller, seen here on Dragnet and as a naked drunk driver on Adam 12.

Mostly Merlot or Cabernet, but on a hot summer day Pinot Grigio. I love hard booze as well, but it was not loving me so quit. But I make up for it in wine consumption.

REALLY???

I don't need alcohol to relax, but I do very much enjoy wine, with or without meals. Red, white, sparkling, dry, sweet -- as Steve Kroll suggested, it depends upon the mood, the weather, the food being eaten.
