What do you normally drink with whiskey?

Asked by Jude (32112points) February 5th, 2010

I like mine with a bit of coke. What else could I mix it with?

Blondesjon, loves his Canadian whiskey. Check out his show at RandomAssRadio

Mint tea. It’s very refreshing, and wonderful to go to sleep on.

Also, some Sweet Vermouth. Then you can call it a Manhattan.

I drink it straight. Mixing things always makes me ill.

robmandu's avatar

With Coke. Or with ginger ale.

Mmmmm… the Crown Royal in my desk drawer beckons…

eponymoushipster's avatar

more whisky.

no ice.

maybe a side of cold ice water. maybe.

also, try pouring the whisky, then gently warming the snifter with a bic lighter. really opens it up.

WhaT @robmandu said.

Unless it’s single malt, thwen I drink it neat or with ice.

susanc's avatar

A very small ice cube. One.

@robmandu: Crown royal ftw! I like it simply on the rocks. Ginger ale is probably your best option

Berserker's avatar

Crown Royal owns. So does Johnny Walker.

Coffee. As in Irish Coffee. Yum yum!

I usually skip my gastro-intestinal system and throw it straight into the urinal. That’s where it’ll end up anyway. So I don’t need any mixers. I take it straight.

hannahsugs's avatar

Whiskey sours. yum.

hungryhungryhortence's avatar

Mostly I like it at room temperature and neat but sometimes with ice and cola.

Dr_C's avatar

Lagavulin on the rocks or neat.

odali's avatar

splash of water, warm. for the first one so it doesnt overwhelm my tastebuds, all the rest warm, neat.

DominicX's avatar

I’ve only had whiskey as Irish coffee. It was good. :)

The last couple times I’ve had Irish coffee, it’s been coffee, milk, and Bailey’s Irish Cream.

odali's avatar

irish coffee is usually jameson and coffee – for a really good treat put whipped cream on it.. perfect sweet/cream ratio and the nice warmth of the jameson and coffee… oh so good.

trumi's avatar

Diet Coke all the way. But I recently discovered that whiskey and water is a refreshing beverage, and it cuts down on the fire.

bea2345's avatar

Nothing improves the taste of whiskey. It was never my favourite tipple. Now gin, that is a drink (especially if it is Tanqueray).

ETpro's avatar

Neat or on ice, please. Really, really good whiskey is best left totally unadulterated—straight up. Glenlivet and all the other fine single-malt Scotch Whiskeys are among my favorite.

onesecondregrets's avatar

Keep it simple, and ladylike: either nothing or diet coke.

augustlan's avatar

Straight out of a shot glass, down the hatch at once!

odali's avatar

nothing is ladylike about drinking straight wiskey… but it is pretty awesome to see a lady doing that!

augustlan's avatar

<< Is a lady. ;)

breedmitch's avatar

Irish. Neat. With beer back.

In China, where I live now, it is usually consumed with green tea. When I first arrived here, I thought it was disgusting and sacrilege, but now I’ve grown accustomed to it and actually prefer it. I’ve found I can’t stomach mixing it with any type of soda anymore—all that carbonation makes me ill, not to mention too much sugar. And I find much less occurrence of hangovers with the green tea.

Pazza's avatar

Vodka.
Though I generaly drink my vodka with gin.
Well, actually, thats a lie, I only do that when I’m playing catch-up!

Most people in England drink ‘JD & Coke’, only old people drink single malt, an then you have to sip it, or your a piss-head. Thats what my dad says anyhoo. What does he know the old fart!.......

Pazza's avatar

I just thought on, you mite try a depth charge, which I believe is usually a shot of port dropped into a pint of guinness, though it maybe more interesting to try it with wisky!

Go on, I DARE YA!.......

odali's avatar

car bombs, jager bombs are better than depth charge imo…. buttt its about the whiskey here. whiskey to me is a good winter drink, warms up the spirit!

Pazza's avatar

Warms up the spirit, or the spirit warms you up?

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

Mmmm! Some Evan Williams with ice and cherry coke = happy me.

TheLoneMonk's avatar

Make mine a Jack Daniels neat with a Heineken.

Jude's avatar

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities we missed you at RandomAss Radio.

downtide's avatar

I usually drink single malt Scotch with nothing but a splash of warm water. Although I will also drink whisky in tea or coffee. I would never in a million years mix anything with coke. I hate the stuff.

@Pazza – Your dad is probably right about single-malt drinkers. I’m on the way to getting old.

EmpressPixie's avatar

Soda—Dr Pepper or Coke.

I also like to drink it with chocolate-mint soda. We call it a chocolate-mint julep. It’s delightful. Just delightful.

Blondesjon's avatar

Wild Cherry PEPSI.

And thank you @jmah for the bottle of Crown that whipped my ass!

going back for round 2 tonight. i ain’t no quitter.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@jmah Yeah sorry, I’m out of town this week. Next week I’ll be there for sure!

onesecondregrets's avatar

@odali haha, the ladylike was for the DIET coke. ;).

odali's avatar

@Pazza Can’t it be both?

@onesecondregrets ohhh!

Pazza's avatar

@odali – Probably, but where I come from people are very particular about their drinkie names, for instance I call a shot of port with a blue wicked a silly vimto, whereas people in other areas insist on calling it a cheeky vimto. I mean really!........ Its just not cricket!

Neizvestnaya's avatar

Benadryl and bitterness.

Just_Justine's avatar

I don’t drink any more but I used to like whiskey and appletiser.

Zen_Again's avatar

Just a glass.

ETpro's avatar

@Zen_Again Clear thinking… at least for the first glass or two.

prairierose's avatar

Whiskey in a cocktail glass plus one ice cube.

downtide's avatar

Ice? Noooo. Chilling whisky kills the flavours stone dead. Unless it’s a really cheap and nasty one in which case you probably want to do that.
