Beer. Good beer.
During the day (light): Pilsener Urquell, Heineken, Fat Tire, Sam Adams, Foster’s Bitter, Carlsberg, any Hefeweisen…aahhhhhhhhh.
At night (dark): Stone Brewery’s Arrogant Bastard, Anchor Steam, Dubbel, Guinness…mmmmmm
For mixed drinks, mix with Malibu rum, and turn the reggae up. Watch out for tequila drinks…
Now I’m thirsty. Quench time, me buckos!

1. Mojitos <—not a girlie drink IMO

Knot: I don’t even drink beer (if cider doesn’t count) but I have had some Old Engine Oil. Every hardcore beer drinker I know gets one for their birthday. Brace yourself…

marinelife's avatar

@Stocky Thanks for stopping. I was getting a hangover just reading your list. One assumes you do not consume them all in the same evening.

Stocky's avatar

**hiccup**... where am i… who are you

Stocky's avatar

Snake wine lol, I missed that at my local liquor store is that next to the wine coolers?

edmartin101's avatar

hmmm….don’t know dude. I get it here in Singapore, it comes from Vietnam. If you guys don’t have it in the US, I can send you some. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked it tastes so good

Stocky's avatar

Haha I thought you were kidding. Its illegal to import to the United States and most other countries. Ive seen a couple shows where they drank it and said it was the most vile tasting thing they ever put in their mouth. One of the shows was Three Sheets with Zane Lampry(great show) Its a show where he goes to different countries gets drunk with the locals and trys strange alcoholic beverages. And the other was Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman on the Travel Channel and that guy eats and and enjoys everything. I think ill pass but thanks for offering :)

ninjaxmarc's avatar

cold unfiltered sake with some good sashami

wildflower's avatar

Bring on the sunshine and Margaritas!!
I also enjoy a nice chilled White Zinfandel or a sweet Swedish cider, a la Rekorderlig or Kopparberg.

artificialard's avatar

I’m surprised more people aren’t into Sangria, it’s big around Toronto right now. Mojitos are awesome, I like some of the newer juice combos too (mango mojitos).

I also like to call them moh-jee-tohs. And if they try to correct me I tell them to move back to Spain. (Yes I know it’s Cuban).

shrubbery's avatar

I agree with everyone who said beer. I particularly like Corona, Pure Blonde and Crown Larger.

apple martini

La_chica_gomela's avatar

i second strongbow cider. K cider is my favorite though. it’s not to sweet, not too dry. just right.

also i just discovered razz margaritas. they are such a girl-drink, but SO yummy. if you feel like regular margaritas taste too much like tequila, throw a shot of rasberry liquor in after blending. it is amazing.

chad's avatar

These suggestions all rock guys! I have no idea where to get Strongbow Cider (I really want to try it after hearing so many good things about it!), but I will keep looking! Oh, and just to help you all from making the same mistake I did… do not waste your time with that new Bud Light with Lime crap. Holy hell is it ever horrible!

knight's avatar

Apple martini, miduri, figling and malibu

stratman37's avatar

Anyone else tried just a drop of tabasco in your Corona? Just the right amount of kick!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Absolut’s Ruby Red Grapefruit vodka with lots of crushed ice mixed with grapefruit and cranberry juices to taste. Top it off with a wedge of lime. It’s our family’s favorite beach drink.
