thanks, I’m hoping brandy taste better than wine...
You can always try a decent vodka mixed with juice or tonic. Iced tea and lemonade (or both mixed together) might do the trick. One shot of hard liquor is considered a “drink”, so in a tall glass it can be only a slight difference in taste.
You're quite welcome, and if you don't care for any of the brandy cocktails or the excellent suggestions from jdsteel and Silentgypsy, you can try whisky, vodka, sherry, schnapps, rum, scotch, beer, and probably quite a few other options that I can't think of because I don't drink so much! ;-) The important thing to remember is this sentence from the article:
"It doesn't seem to matter if it's beer, wine, or spirits, as long as the drinking was moderate," Edward J. Neafsey, PhD, from the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics at Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, Illinois, told Medscape Medical News.
if you're interested in finding something that you can enjoy, one option is going to a quality cocktail bar that has a knowledgeable bartender. There, you can try different things without having to buy a whole bottle for each experiment :-)
A good bartender will also be able to make good recommendations for you based upon what you indicate that you already like.
Good luck :-)
