Snakes In The Ball Pit > Yay, I get to talk about me!

what's your poison (and by poison i mean delicious alcohol)

(1/47) > >>

chai tea latte:
So, I am a really big fan of gin! Also beer, the stouter the better. Brown ale, Guiness, porters, all that good stuff. I also sometimes drink wine, though given that my wine-purchasing has historically been 'this label is typeset nicely and it is also cheap' I've had...mixed results.

What all do you guys like to drink, when you do? If you do (are you a straightedge punk person? Why?) Why is gin objectively better than other spirits? What's up with, like, tequila? All that stuff.

also i am kind of drunk right now (I think delcat once said 'in my cups' here to mean drunk and it is a delightfully folksy expressino but i fell like if i tried to say that a friend would rightly punch me for bengi a nonce) so pretend i said something equally cool and also endearing here and yeah that

Delcat:
It's actually a British colloquialism and I wasn't even drunk at the time, just thoughtful, so I reckon you have more right than me to say it

I don't drink very often because it fucks with my meds, but I'm a fan of flavored vodka mixed into Kool-Aid or soda or what have you.  I mean, fuck, they have marshmallow vodka.  They could just make that a soda flavor to begin with and I'd be happy.

chai tea latte:
There exists cake vodka, and while it is an awful heresy in the name of Liquor it is also so incredibly tasty. Like, I got super american-college-girl drunk off it at a party once and it was amazing. Tasted exactly like a...you know, those white cakes with the rainbow sprinkles? They can be bundt-pan cakes but don't have to be...that thing, with a slight hint of plastic (which disappeared entirely after the first taste). So good./

montrith:
I don't drink much, but when I do it's mostly mixed-drinks I make myself by just randomly throwing together stuff. I'm also rather fond of Tokaj wine, but since the good ones are ridiculously expensive here in Finland I rarely have the chance to drink that.

My house has two gins: Hendrick's (the pricier stuff) and New Amsterdam (the well drink).  I like them both.  Hendrick's is behaved and has kind of a cucumber taste to it, New Amsterdam is a nuclear assault of juniper.

I like my brown liquors:  there's always a bottle of bourbon on my desk, my readin' juice.  I'm not that fussy but I've liked Jim Beam the best so far.  I just slug from the bottle when the time is right.

I'm not a huge scotch fan, but there's a bottle of Oban 14 and Glen Breton (mostly because this one is Canadian and the Scottish are kind of upset over its naming) that linger about.

Vodka?  Tito's exclusively.  Vodka is normally on part with cheap organic solvent for me, but this shit is really smooth and drinkable, reasonably economical, and mixes well, so it goes well with the lady and her friends.

Sometimes I'll get a bottle of Fine Sève (maple whiskey) whenever I can, but I have to cross the border and seek out an ADQ (Quebecois regulated liquor store, the equivalent of Ontario's LCBO) to get a bottle.

We have also girly drink stuff (amaretto-equivalents, irish cream, etc.) but that's not my thing.  G&Ts are about as mixed drink as I usually get.
