Favorite Beverages of our Freepers??

Posted on 01/01/2013 11:15:42 AM PST by SamAdams76

I have often wondered what preferences of beverages the various Freepers have, in particular, the kind of intoxicating liquors they tried to ban back in 1920. I know by reading stories on here that many of us consume intoxicating liquors from time to time and we may even have some Freepers who have accumulated some POIs over the years (posting under the influence). Obviously, don't post your favorite intoxicating liquor if you do not want to, but I just thought it would be interesting to see our beverage choices. Especially the morning after many of us quite possibly overindulged on same the night before...wait, is it afternoon already? Darn. Having breakfast at 1PM always throws me off my game.

If you don't drink intoxicating liquors at all, feel free to tell us what beverages you do drink. Milk, apple juice, sarsaparilla? Your reply might be boring to us but let us know anyhow if you feel so inclined to share.

In response to all the other nutty threads here today seeking personal information on Freepers, I am 50, have brown hair, hazel eyes, weigh 225 pounds and I prefer female company. My waist size is 40, my shoe size is 12 and yes, I do need to keep an eye on my blood pressure. I own a dog, a cat and no, I do not snore. As for intoxicating liquors, I prefer madeira wine, Samuel Adams seasonals, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, 100% agave tequila and the occasional bottle of champagne. But preferably not all together at the same time as what happened last night. As of this moment my favorite beverage is Gatorade.

Never a hard liquor guy and quit years ago, but when I did drink (with great urgency) I was a fan of the rot cut known as Genessee Beer. A NorthEast brew that will NOT be high on many people’s list.

But I liked it. Too much actually ;)

I don't even think of posting here until I'm intoxicated. And not any of that .08 bullcrap, either. I leave that to the States. I'm nationwide.

Strangford Lough Brewing, Legbiter Ale is my favorite because it’s $3.99 a six pack.

Bourbon.

By definition, a southern American beverage.

Except in December, when I drink Canadian whiskey. My wife is Canadian.

You best not be ragging on my Laz. His thread was fun, a little “time out” from this crazy world we now live in.

My SSN, DOB, weight, hair and eye color, and now you want to know what my favorite adult beverage is? That’s over the line, but ok...it’s....Pennzoil 10 W30...and none of those metrosexual synthetic additives.

Oh yeah, Bombay Blue Sapphire. I think it’s 90 proof and you can feel that extra 10 proof. It makes excellent Martinis with Tanqueray making the next best.

I used to be a beer snob when I was younger but now I drink Busch. $11.99 for an 18-pack. Not a bad deal in today’s Obamaconomy. As far as soda goes, you can always find Vernor’s Ginger Ale in my fridge. Tastes like no other ginger ale on the market. Actually tastes like ginger ale mixed with cream soda. I love the stuff!

I thought you caught that Laz was mocking an earlier poster (Blue Highwayman, perhaps??).

It's all good, tough. Much fun today thanks to all.

The three drinks in my fridge are A&W sugar free root beer, sugar free Crystal Light and Corona Extra in no particular order. The Coronas are for after working outside. The Crystal Light is my mainstay, the root beer for a quickie drink when really thirsty.

If I drink at the Elks its Amaretto!!!! Can only have one (a double) ‘cause its really sweet, very good but sweet. And I don’t drink Disaronno, I drink the round bottle di Amore, its a lot smoother.

Alcoholic beverages: a good bourbon. Cab sauv wine.

Soft drinks: diet A&W or Mug root beer. Coke Zero, too.

Water may be plain but it is refreshing.

Dislike carbonated beverages but will drink a good gin and tonic. I’ve never finished an entire beer in my life...despise the smell but give me my Pinot Grigio. My favorite and that of many of my friends is called “Mommy’s Time Out”. It should actually be called “Grannie’s Time Out’ since we’re all past the Mommy stage of our lives.

Just an homage to your screen name. As for me, I've been hitting the Dr. Pepper pretty hard these days. Used to get by with one maybe once a week or even two weeks. Lately, one-three a day. :-(

3 oz Gordon’s gin
1 oz 100 proof Vodka
.5 oz Blonde Lillet
Shaken hard and served with a large, thin lemon peel.
= Vesper

That, and my trusty Glenlivet. 12-year.

Must have missed that. Thought I read every post, perhaps just skipped over it?

I agree, it has been fun. Nice escape. Been drowning in my own sorrows since the election.

My bff and I (was at her house for election night, my cable still out because of Sandy) were throwing ourselves around on the floor, crying and hugging. We just could NOT accept it.

This indescribable feeling I have had since, deep inside, has not subsided. But Laz’s thread was the 1st FR fun postings I have had since.

I’ve had a lot of different scotches, but Lagavulin is by far my favorite.

I’m also fond of aquavit, gin & tonics, dirty gin martinis, Manhattans made with rye or good bourbon, shots of Zwack, and all kinds of old-school cocktails.

I like a good full-bodied red wine, and there is no end to the beers I enjoy, but usually I get something from the local brewery, Alaskan.
