    I'm a steadfast creature of habit: not unwilling to try new things, I just tend to stick with what I like. So here's a thread, not necessarily for making recommendations, but just to see what the day to day is like. Did you break out the good stuff for a special occasion, or just a couple of Buds with buds? Try something new? Maybe tell us where you imbibed...

    Last night, for me, was a double Jameson and two pints of Bridgeport IPA with a friend, sitting at the bar where they know our names and bring the beer without our having to ask. :)

    Whats for Breakfast?

    Carolans Irish Cream and coffee, at my desk , reading this thread.
    I am big on experimenting, and keeping my favorites. I tend to try something new every week along with the regulars. chow

    I don't vary from my preferences much; Islay scotch (Laphroig is best-White Horse blended if I'm drinking cheap), sharp bourbon (Old Granddad), and Spanish Torres Imperial 10 brandy.

    So far this is the Texas thread...;)

    V8 juice mixed with vodka, hot sauce, Old Bay seasoning, and stirred with a stalk of celery.
  6. Martini's - - Lots and lots of Martini's! :D
    (it's cold outside :) )

    half a mai tai made with the Trader Vic's mix, lime juice and Trader Vic's rum - I was anticipating insomnia but CNBC put me to sleep...
  9. Blanton's...on the rocks baby. I'm a sucker for good single barrell, small batch whiskey. Keep the bar well stocked so as to indulge myself on occasion. ;)

    A glass of the house red wine (don't even know what is was) while attending a German Discussion Table at a local restaurant. (this place hosts foreign-language discussion tables most nights - German is Tuesday)
    Don't know if the wine helped either my pronunciation or vocabulary, but it at least gave me the courage to try ...

    Half a bottle of Tanners claret superb. :eusa_clap

    Drank half a bottle of Romance Red from Cooper's Hawk Winery. Unfortunately, my wife is on anti-biotics for a sinus infection. So no wine for her.

    Snort from an old Bottle of WIld Turkey Russell's Reserve. The 101 proof stuff... :D
  15. Big fan here of Russell's Reserve. Good choice. Last night for me was Bookers/rocks.

    Another IPA, this time Abita, shivering like a mangy dog on my front porch last night. Just enjoying the few cold days here in my own perverse way. I'm hoping Dixie will make a comeback. Anyone know anything those poor guys?

    John Daniels (when you've known him as long as I have, its John) on the rocks in a double old fashion glass. I'm just as curious about what type of glass I drink out of as what is in the glass. My wife came home the other day with some stemless martini glasses...no way am I drinking out of that!

    Tonight I believe I'll have a Bombay Sapphire martini (two olives and one onion) and drink it out of the old glasses just to make a point.

    A glass of Willamette Valley Vineyards 2004 Barrell Select Oregon Pinot Noir with dinner (fantastic, jammy strawberry nose, but doesn't really follow-up with an equally impressive taste and finish), followed by a red blend from the paso robles area, with cheese (can't remember the name of the wine - I was more interested in the cheeses). Dessert was a glass of Smith Woodhouse 1995 LBV.
    All-in-all, a good evening ...
  20. I had a really awesome pisco sour at the best cocktail bar in Copenhagen, Ruby. I can't resist the creamy sourness tinged with a dash of bitter... Yum!
