And here I thought you were a man!
I'd drink both of the above without anything mixed in, but I'm more of a shooter than a sipper of spirits.
I drink for taste as much as for getting drunk, so I'd rather just drink a good beer.
I like whiskey old fashioneds
I bought a bottle of elmer t lee bourbon after he passed away. I'm not normally a huge bourbon drinker but its not too sweet. I'll drink that over ice.
I have a few other odds and ends. People tend to get me spirits for Christmas.
For cocktails though good ole straight from Dan Murphy's jim beam rye
My go to spirits are American and Canadian whisky and although not an American whisky, Jack Daniels I do like.
My favourite American whisky' are anything wild turkey really. As far as Canadian whisky goes, crown royal is nice although expensive in Australia.
Never really had too many cocktails but Long Island ice tea goes down well and surprisingly martinis are quite amazing.
An extra long island ice tea with the shots doubled is a good way to start an evening. In my student days we would make huge punch bowls of long island ice tea because all the alcohol is at a 1:1 ratio. So get cheap as f**k gin, vodka, rum, triple sec and tequila or get everyone to bring a bottle and just go to town. Top it off with some woolies coke.
Love a good mint julep tbh.
Anybody ever tried Amarula?
It's like a smoother, sweeter Bailey's or Kahlua. Bloody good as a dessert drink.
I prefer Amarula over Baileys.
Yeah - fantastic drink. Love it.
Jack Daniels is definitely my spirit of choice, Makers Mark is quite nice too.
Canadian Club 20 year old is fast becoming my whiskey of choice. I love all the good scotches...but seriously, it's ludicrously good. And like 80 bucks a bottle, which for a 20yo whiskey is theft.
Lagavulin 16 and Hibiki 20 at the moment.
If you enjoy an Irish whiskey, give Bushmills Black Bush a try. Great drop. It is an Irish single malt if you like that.
Only if the song is also playing.
