Depends on the season in the colder month I lean toward scotch and water, in summer I have to have Guiness. Of course tequilla is great at any time, shots or a big rita on the rocks....

Usually a good pilsner or ale, but an Absolut Citron and Tonic with a twist is a good cocktail hour drink of choice.

My aunt's whiskey sours... kind of like the ones you can get at a bar, but mixed with 7up and blended with ice to make a slushy. Yummy on a hot, humid North Carolina afternoon.

Caribbean rum and Jose Cuervo Tequila.......not together of course, but very, very good. I'll admit that my tolerance towards beer is growing stronger.

Hmmm Hmmm My kind of question..... :)

I have been drinking a lot of the malt liquor drinks lately...Zima (w/ lime of course), Bacardi Silver, Skyy Blue.

It does depend on the season.....I LUUUVVVV Woodchuck Cider, but that seems to be mostly an autumn thing.

When it comes to mixed drinks...amaretto sours are my absolute favorite!

With winter coming on I will be drinking more port. There are a few that I like, but a couple months ago I came across a very nice winery in California, Trentadue. Try the Zinfandel Port.

I also start drinking German beers in winter, like Kostritzer Schwartz. Summertime favorites are Alaskan Amber, Moose Drool or Guiness. I also enjoy a good margarita.

Guinness for the beer, whiskey sours made with Jack Daniels for the harder stuff.

Oh yeah Runner! Frog's Leap is great! I love any good dark red- lately it's been Rosemount Shiraz, but I love any red, the darker the better. I really enjoy kicking back with a few bottles in the house and grilling peppercorn crusted filets. Granted, I'm just learning how to grill, but I can pour wine like there's no tomorrow!

Do I have to pick just one?

I guess I "appreciate" drinking scotch the most and that would have to be my favourite. But I tend to drink beer and wine much more.

The "urban legend" (probably true, but not confirmed) going around the province right now is that one of the province's plan reviewers does not like alcohol. A plan was sent in for his comment and review for conformity to teh Act and the preparer received a treatise on the evils of alcohol longer then the planning document.

My preferred drink for flavour is beer (good beer like 50, Creemore or Pumphouse NO Keiths or Alpine or US beer) for getting drunk rye and ginger ale (Wisers Special Old and Canada Dry).

I have been known to "accidentally" drink a 40 of fireball schnapps and other liquers that taste good but have no alcohol flavour to warn you that you will get drunk.

I also appreciate scotch one in a while.

I think I may have appreciated my scotch a little too much on the weekend...

On the other hand, I can now highly recommend Glendronach 15 yr. old for all you other scotch hounds out there. Nice, sherry-casked amber scotch...yum.

In the winter, I love a nice dark, strong beer, like Sprecher Black Bavarian (Milwaukee Area microbrewery) or any of the "Winter" specialty beers put out by microbreweries. Guinness is also a favorite (year round).

For hard liquor...Tanqueray and Tonic.

Also a red fan - we've been slowly making our way thru our local wine store's selection of Australian Shiraz-es. yum-ness!

We're now buying cases of our favorite wines from World Market. Kel, I LOVE SHIRAZ! I think our regular is Rosemount (blackand red label), but there are others out there that are so much better-

Boulevard Wheat, a Kansas City-based brewery's wheat beer available in a somewhat large, yet still limited, region of Middle America. I hope it's is or becomes available wherever I end up for grad school. You used to only be able to get it in MO, KS, NE, IA, and OK. When I moved to Austin, it wasn't available here or in most of Texas. It has since moved into the region, in addition to AR, CO, SD, ND, MN, IN, and parts of IL, AL, ID, OR, TN, UT, WA, and WY.

I've traded the Kool-Aid for the Country Time lemonade. Its pretty much the same thing, but I feel more adult buying it.

As Albert Collins would say ... I ain't drunk, I'm just drinkin'

Lately I've been on a 'Turkey Dew' kick (Wild Turkey and Mountain Dew). My liquor drinks seem to change from year to year.

As for beer, there's such a variety of good beers that weren't around just 5 or 10 years ago...but Dogfish Head Burton Baton is about the best I've drank and its hard to come by in this area.

Considering categories apart from beer (ala ofos) I'd have to say:
whiskey - Maker's Mark
rum - Malibu with Coke (go ahead and laugh and call me a lame loser)
gin - Tanqueray and tonic (like drinking a Christmas tree!)
wine - gosh, everything from Michigan is so darned yummy it's too hard to decide
vodka - hate to say it but probably orange Stoly
