Allright...I like a good microbrewed beer (New Belgium stuff especially), A Vodka martini made with good vodka like Ketel One or Grey Goose, and a good scotch. How about the rest of you? BTW...Vodka and Red Bull is a great pick me up.

It tends to vary a bit but here is the list in no real order

Crown Royal and soda
Gin and tonic
A properly made gin martini (not made by me!)

A really cold beer on a hot afternoon - Killians or a microbrew

A fine Cabernet or Red Zinfandel with my meal. My favorite (today) is a Grgich Hills '97 Red Zin.

A warm Bailey's straight up in front of a roaring fire.

A cold glass of OJ first thing in the AM or a strong cup of coffee, with real cream and sugar.

Then again, a cold glass of beer is good almost anytime

A good microbrewed Pale Ale - the more hops the better.

A Pim's Cup w/ a cucumber twist

A full-bodied Merlot or Pinot Noir that feels like liquid velvet going down.

Oh, and the old standby - Corona with a lime!

Bottoms up,

I hardly drink alcohol anymore, since I retired my stress factor is at practically at ground zero, and I don't feel the need to unwind. Also at my age I can't handle the colories.

When I do drink on occasion, I like a good microbrew, or a stout ale such as Guiness. I used to love VO on the rocks, but I can't handle all that sugar anymore.

What can I say, growing old sucks...old age ain't for sissies...

Ice cold beer on a hot day is always a winner for me. If it's cold enough it can even be a beer that I don't like that much.
A good scotch on ice, a nice red wine and the odd black russian but I must be very careful drinking those.

My wife prefers white wine and some of our nicest times are spent sitting at the dining room table for hours after dinner having wine and conversation.

April though October, I generally prefer an amber microbrew. With the cooler autumn weather, I favor wine, some whites, but mostly reds - zinfandel, chianti, merlot, and others - through the winter months. This isn't absolute. I have a few beers during the winter and some wine during the summer.
