What is your favorite alcoholic beverage to relax and unwind?

Red wine.

Red wine. I used to prefer a rum & diet coke, but hard alcohol doesn't go well with me these days, so it is red wine.

Amarula on Ice or a glass of port in winter.

Red wine - cabernet sauvignon actually. If I'm at lunch, I order 1 (one) Tanqueray martini up with lime.

It varies based on my mood of the day.

In the winter it's mostly a Crown Royal on the rocks. In the summer it's a gin and tonic or bloody mary.

Beer also is a regular participant.

I don't drink much wine anymore.

Scotch on the rocks, or red wine.

I don't really have to unwind, I am already more or less unraveled.

I do enjoy a nice Manhattan in the winter or a gin and tonic in the summer.
