Since we have a never ending beer thread i thought I could start the liquor thread. So what do you like?

I usually drink Crown or Maker’s in my old fashion. Woodford is another good one. I’m trying Two Stars. I’m not going to recommend it. Buffalo Sweat looks interesting but I haven’t tried it.

Had a Highball last night with Maker's and ginger ale after returning home from volunteering at our Main Street program's Beerfest fundraiser event.

And I typically never drink beer.

Not much of a liquor guy here, but occasionally I enjoy a shot of licoricey Akvavit. I like it ice cold and the alcohol burn is delayed until it hits the back of your throat.

I am a gin person - like most brands but Tanqueray is a little too perfumy

I drink scotch or Irish whiskey when I have a cold as my parents always gave me that as a kid (lol, but hey they were Depression, pre penicillin people!)

I am a gin person. I really enjoy the London Mule. I tried (because Ryan Reynolds is dreamy) Aviation Gin, and actually liked it. I have been going with that the last couple purchases.

Speaking of mules, I've been meaning to try a Moscow Mule ever since I saw one made on YouTube.

The copper mug is all part of the drink's supposed appeal. It looks nice at any rate. Generally speaking, though, I prefer gin over vodka.

I have been drinking a local rye whiskey. I first bought because it's local and I know the owners. I keep buying it because it is smooth despite it being significantly more expensive than my usual. If I am drinking a good whiskey, I'll either drink it straight or neat. Of late, I have been using it as a cough elixir. I make a hot toddy. I add little honey and some lemon to the whiskey and mix it half and half with hot water.

That is why I drink London Mules. Gin instead of vodka. Makes the drink actually taste good.
