OK there's been talk of food, shows, women, etc.

when you go to happy hour, what is your drink of choice? liquor, beer, wine, o'douls, etc. for me:

1. crown and coke. some of my hardcore whiskey-drinking buddies frown upon blended but it goes down soooo easy.

2. goose and cran. again i get ripped sometimes for drinking a pinkish concoction but i lik'em.

3. for a brew, i gotta go with shiner bock. this is one habit i picked up after moving to texas.

Very nice! #1 & #2 are my favorite drinks...for me nothing beats Crown and Cokes...had quite a few of them this past Saturday, I feel like I'm still paying for it.

No frills, light beer. I can drink it all day and still stay coherent. And I can buy a 30 pack for less than $15 (for now).

If I'm at a holiday party, perhaps I will have some mixed drinks. Malibu rum and pineapple is good. Beam and coke is good too.

Simple drink for a simple man... :lol:

Budweiser Select
Rumplemintz chilled "ice cold" on the rocks in a tumbler....

...But when BIG FAN was here, he broke into a bottle of Peruvian liquor I have behind the bar... :lol:

What's that? I've heard of Long Island Iced Tea but never that one...what's in it?

I gave up the sauce over 4 years ago (killer hangovers after a night out with only 2 drinks...who needs that?) but when I was drinking it was pretty much Captain and Coke. I never saw the point of "acquiring a taste" for something. If it tasted good to me I drank it...if it tasted bad I didn't. No need to prove my machismo by drinking tequila or some other turpentine tasting swill. :2c

Yes I did, and to this day still give it HIGH marks. :lol:
Usually though I tend to stick to some ice cold bud light.
Back in my younger days I always thought it a waste to dilute good whiskey with anything sweet, so I preferred Beam and soda if I was going to have a mixed drink.
Still dont mind a shot and a beer every now and then.

Maker's Mark and Coke is my favorite, "go to" drink. I can put down a lot of those.

If I'm at a nice place then I like to start with a dirty martini (I'm talking dirty like the Allegheny River) - Kettle One or Stoli's

Basil Hayden (smooth, small batch bourbon) over one or two cubes is a nice treat as well. NEVER mix this with anything!

Favorite Beer: Blue Moon
Favorite Mixed Drink: Rum and Coke, or in the summer, Parrot Bay and Sprite)

Also like some of your typically girlie frufru drinks (well, I am a girlie, so what do you expect!): flavored martinis (apple, watermelon, chocolate raspberry), mojitos, and last night at our local watering hole, I tried a frozen cosmo, which was pretty good, especially since I don't usually like frozen drinks.

I don't drink either. There's no real story behind it. People always want to know why, figuring that somebody who doesn't drink must be a recovering alcoholic or something. I just tried a few things, but never really liked anything. And since I have no desire to ever get drunk, why should I drink something that tastes somewhat like medicine to me? I'd rather have a milkshake than a mixed drink, a root beer instead of a beer, and grape juice over wine. So I'm the designated driver, very happy drinking a Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew, Jones Soda, Gatorade, or just plain ol' icewater. I would much rather drink water than a Diet Soda too. I don't have to spend $8 for a warm beer at sporting events. :Beer :Cheers

I've also saved myself a fortune by not paying for haircuts. My mother has her own beauty shop, and if I need a trim, she will just pull out the scissors whenever we visit her house. So I've always had a "Mom haircut" except that since my mom does that for a living, I don't have the butcher job that are typical of most Mom haircuts...I have the professional Mom version. :P

I'm not a recovering alcoholic or anything like that.When I was growing up,my dad used to drink quite a bit(especially on the weekends.)Whenever he drank,he turned into #1 a-hole on the planet.I always swore that I would NEVER be that way around my kids.So,I just don't drink around them.Even when they aren't around,the most I'll have is two beers.

I have no kids, but if I did I don't think I would want to have more than two drinks. My wife & I babysit our niece's alot and watching kids is alot of work -I would think drinking while watching kids would just make it more difficult.

Besides an occasional beer, I'm also a non-drinker. I had my fun in college and
decided to call it quits before I graduated. When I do have my occasional beer
(no more than 3 in one sitting), my favorite is IC Light, Guinness, and Yuengling.

I stopped getting haircuts for a while, and just let my hair grow. My mother was ticked off, since she was a beautician who had a son who she felt was making her look bad by going around with a mop on his head. I told my wife when it was long enough, I would cut it off an donate to Locks for Love (making wigs for kids with cancer). When my mom heard about this, she had a ruler and scissors waiting for me the next time we came over to her house. Long hair story short, I went something like this...

I totally respect that. I've been married four years. I drank at my bachelor party (in excess). For a year and a half I drank sparingly (wine at holidays and no more that 2 glasses). My daughter came and I didn't drink until NKy's Cincy gig (in excess and you all saw the pictures)..... haven't drank a drop since (that was Oct. last year). I can't say that I'll never drink, but I find it less of an issue with each year that I get older. But I must say that if I were to take another sip it would Goose.

With drinking comes the headache of who is going to drive me. And when I'm home, I'm a dad and I just don't drink around my daughter, I'm too busy enjoying her and the cool age she's at. Her twirling of the Terrible towel skills is much improved from last year. :tt2

Smart man...my fiance is the same way, having dealt with an alcoholic mother and multiple alcoholic stepfathers. When his kids were younger, he'd barely drink around them at all, and on the rare ocasions when he went out drinking with friends, he made a rule that no matter what, he would NEVER discipline his kids when he'd had any alcohol at all. Now the kids are all grown up, so he and I both drink often, but not in mass quantity.
