A thread about spirits!
What do you like drinking?
What's your regular relaxing drink?
What's your special occasion drink?
Do you drink it neat, on the rocks or with a mixer?
A little bit about my spirits drinking habits:
Jack Daniels (right) is my regular 'go to' spirit. The premixes are delicious but way too expensive so I mix it myself. It goes down easy, super easy even at double shot level with a coke mixer. They've just brought out a White Label variety over here which is ~3% less alcohol but is about $10 cheaper (less tax I assume) and apparently tastes the same. Will be trying this out tomorrow so I will report back.
Captain Morgan Spiced Rum (left) is my choice if I want something different. It's a very complex and delicate flavour (for it's price) even when mixed with coke.
Captain Morgan Jamacian Rum (middle) is what I get if I just want to smash shit. It has a very heavy flavour and puts hairs on your chest. The great thing about drinking this is no one will steal it as it's an acquired taste.. at least at the strengths I pour it at.
I'm a big fan of bourbon but also adore scotch and whiskey. Jameison is my usual in that regard. I can't drink most of them straight but with half a glass of water or a bunch of ice it goes down quite nicely.
Johnny Walker red label tastes like the plague, Johnny Blue also tastes pretty bad straight to me.
I've become a recent fan of the Long Island Ice Tea cocktail (a shot of vodka, white rum, tequila, gin and fill glass with coke) due to it's absolute devastation it wreaks on sobriety.
