Re: Cheers! Favorite Drink Recipe?

I've never found a mixed drink that's kept my interest. I was intrigued by the Old Fashioned briefly, but I'd rather just pay for better whiskey (like jon.kiparsky, I'm also amenable to whisky) and drink it with a splash of water. Or a good beer or glass of wine. I guess I'm not much of a mixer, unless I'm just trying to get drunk cheap: I'll always have a place in my heart (and gut) for a Jack and Coke.

Half a pint of lager,
Half a pint of sweet cider,
A double serving of blackcurrant juice (or squash),
And a treble pernod.

aka, Black Witch



Sounds similar to Snakebite, minus the Pernod


Actually, it is exactly Snakebite, only with added pernod and blackcurrant. Snakebite & Black it's called without the pernod. I used to drink this all the time.


Makes sense.

Until recently I've always thought Snakebite and Black was just Snakebite. I thought the blackcurrant was just an integral part of it, rather then an extra. Whenever I've ordered it (as Snakebite) it's always come with the splash of blackcurrant.

I've always known Snakebite as to be the lager and cider mixed together, but no blackcurrant. I have heard of other places in the UK where a Snakebite does already include the black though.

I'm like jon and Hannibal here...Scotch on the rocks, please - or a good Irish whiskey. I can't stand American whiskeys though. Canadian are alright - if nothing else is available I'll go for Crown Royal but I prefer a nice Cardhu or Tullamore Dew with a couple ice cubes - enough to cool and dilute it but not dampen the flavor.

I'm fat, and my ancestry is German, Irish, and Cherokee. There is no such thing as a cheap drunk for me, so I drink socially for pleasure and at best get a mild buzz. Last time I got drunk (saturday, incidentally) it took a bottle of Tequila and I didn't get particularly trashed. I made a drinking game out of watching GI Joe Rise of Cobra: every time someone died I took a shot, 2 if it was done off-handedly, 3 if it was a crowd of civilians. I envy people who can get drunk cheap -.-

I really only drink about 3 different drinks.


Scotch, with a splash of water.

Vodka, by the glass, either with a splash of water, or a splash of cranberry juice (and I mean a splash)

Martini - dry gin, dry vermouth, 3 olives



When I was a kid I really enjoyed spiced rum mixed with a blue raspberry slush puppy. I was 12, what do you expect?

I still think the most effective drinking game is taking a shot every time someone pops off a cool line in Tombstone. "You gonna do something, or you just gonna stand there and bleed?" is the last line I remember drinking to...

The current going ons around in my neck of the woods:

Take one bottle of Reds Apple Ale.
Drink about one shot out of it.
Pour in one shot of Fireball.
Cover the mouth of the bottle with your thumb, and tilt to mix.
Drink.

There are some good ones out there. Every time you see Sarah Michelle Gellar's bra strap in Buffy is a good one too.

@neo - most likely. It'll be a little thinner, but it should work.

What's with the games? Drinking is serious business!

(the way I look at it, if you have to make a game out of it to get a drink down your neck you're probably not really interested)

Youth and naivete, and in our case, enlisted pay didn't warrant anything of a higher quality than bottom-shelf, plastic jug liquor. Alcohol is standard-issue self-medication in the military...

Even if I cared to (I don't), I don't think I could afford to match that pace of consumption with anything I actually care to drink these days.
