Question for those in our rather splendid age group: rum, vodka, gin, tequila or whiskey?

Gin or whiskey... depending on my mood. I like tequila too, but not often.

Rum,vodka, gin, tequila, triple sec, and a splash of coke

Same here, though I'll dabble in rum during the summertime, just none of the overly-sugary concoctions. Daiquiris are supposed to be sour, and pina coladas are supposed to taste like booze. Smoothies aren't cocktails in my book.

I agree. I think the reason I don't like rum, though, is because when I was in high school, I drank entirely too much of it one evening and I've never had a taste for it since. Although, I really don't like "sweet" alcohol except for margaritas (which, properly made, aren't even really "sweet").

I can understand. The only time I ever got sick involved eight shots of Jameson, four glasses of Shiraz, and this horrible cinnamon liquor. I had started the evening off with a dry gin Martini. I can't drink dry wine, Jameson, or anything that tastes like cinnamon anymore.

And I agree wholeheartedly about the margaritas. I dislike mixes on principle.

That awful cinnamon liquor was probably Fireball or some variant of it. I hate the stuff... it's too sweet, and it makes my stomach do unpleasant things. I've never been a fan of Shiraz though. I'm more of a Malbec of Bordeaux, Sangiovese or if there's nothing else Cabernet guy. Chianti is pretty awesome too. The only thing I like Jameson in, though, is an Irish Car Bomb. I suppose that's a sweet drink though... so Margarita's and Irish Car Bombs. Those are my two. I can drink a white russian, but I don't enjoy it. I'd much rather have a gin and tonic.

Yes, it was fireball. Ugh, it was awful. Wine tends to give me a weird headache, so I'm not that well versed, but I do remember loving a bottle of Louis Jadot Burgundy that I once bought. It was flinty. Can't do white Russians, or any dairy-based drink. It just disturbs me. And I dislike beer, so car bombs are out. Overall my go-to is either a gin gimlet, and I usually go with Brokers, Plymouth, or Citadelle, or a perfect Manhattan with Crown Royal Black. Simple and refreshing.

I feel that way more about beer, because usually people who drink wine don't get all up in your face about how much more manly they are. I find it ridiculous for some asshat drinking bud light to call my dry gin martini a 'girly drink'.

Question for those in our rather splendid age group: rum, vodka, gin, tequila or whiskey?

Gin or whiskey... depending on my mood. I like tequila too, but not often.

Same here, though I'll dabble in rum during the summertime, just none of the overly-sugary concoctions. Daiquiris are supposed to be sour, and pina coladas are supposed to taste like booze. Smoothies aren't cocktails in my book.

I agree. I think the reason I don't like rum, though, is because when I was in high school, I drank entirely too much of it one evening and I've never had a taste for it since. Although, I really don't like "sweet" alcohol except for margaritas (which, properly made, aren't even really "sweet").

I can understand. The only time I ever got sick involved eight shots of Jameson, four glasses of Shiraz, and this horrible cinnamon liquor. I had started the evening off with a dry gin Martini. I can't drink dry wine, Jameson, or anything that tastes like cinnamon anymore.

And I agree wholeheartedly about the margaritas. I dislike mixes on principle.

That awful cinnamon liquor was probably Fireball or some variant of it. I hate the stuff... it's too sweet, and it makes my stomach do unpleasant things. I've never been a fan of Shiraz though. I'm more of a Malbec of Bordeaux, Sangiovese or if there's nothing else Cabernet guy. Chianti is pretty awesome too. The only thing I like Jameson in, though, is an Irish Car Bomb. I suppose that's a sweet drink though... so Margarita's and Irish Car Bombs. Those are my two. I can drink a white russian, but I don't enjoy it. I'd much rather have a gin and tonic.

Yes, it was fireball. Ugh, it was awful. Wine tends to give me a weird headache, so I'm not that well versed, but I do remember loving a bottle of Louis Jadot Burgundy that I once bought. It was flinty. Can't do white Russians, or any dairy-based drink. It just disturbs me. And I dislike beer, so car bombs are out. Overall my go-to is either a gin gimlet, and I usually go with Brokers, Plymouth, or Citadelle, or a perfect Manhattan with Crown Royal Black. Simple and refreshing.

I like Plymouth Naval Strength or Bombay Sapphire.

I keep the Naval Strength behind class that reads 'break in case of Young Earth Creationists'.

ROFLMAO!

Oh god that is fantastic....
