I like Irish whiskey or bourbon. The Irish I tend to drink straight with a few drops of water, the bourbon I'll often have with Coke unless it's a good brand, then I'll have it straight sometimes. If I'm feeling like a sweet-ish cocktail, I'll add a little splash of grenadine and a cherry to my bourbon and Coke.
I'll drink other liquors from time to time, but I absolutely never have gin or Scotch. They're simply unfit for human consumption. Blech!
As opposed to someone who posted earlier, I think whiskey is a natural choice for a beer drinker looking to explore liquor. Many of the ingredients and flavors are the same, and the classic boilermaker is a good example of how they work well together.
I agree. I am a big fan of craft beers and high-end bourbons. They go well together (until you've had too many, of course).
Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
my room mate got a bottle of bacardi watermelon rum, and I tried some. It was good. Then again I like watermelon flavored stuff and rum, so that makes sense. I bet it would taste pretty good in strawberry pop.
I've also been drinking gin & tonics reacently and my room mate tried some and she liked it. though I have to have extra lime in them or else I find them undrinkable
Hendrick's gin and tonic with a spear of cucumber... it's really the only gin I find worth drinking and it doesn't taste the least like something you would clean the toilet with
Dark rum with ginger ale- a dark and stormy- hard to get a bartender who knows what that is in the midwest
Fernet and coke- kind of bitter and earthy, but addictive once you get used to it
Personally, I'm not a huge fan of premium vodkas- not enough character for my tastes. I've always been pleased with a glass of Stoli with a large splash of olive juice and a handful of olives- I love dirty dry martinis- and there's NOTHING better than vodka olives
