I hate to get stuck in a rut, so I usually order the darkest beer they have on tap rather than a brand - often Guiness which suits me fine.
Then I'll order something else for seconds.
If I drink Coke, which I only do rarely, I prefer the Mexican variant = real sugar instead of HFCS. Probably not any healthier, but tastes better. Mostly I drink water, at least when not drinking alcoholic bevs.
Guinness for me. If I'm at a restaurant that has local brews on the menu, I'll experiment.
Beer Snob beer or a glass of wine paired with dinner.
Yuengling is my go-to beer in bars.
Whatever real ale they have on the handpumps, particularly a local one I haven't tried before.
I haven't tried it yet, but I hear this is excellent!
Jack n coke and or Guiness. Depends on the mood
Jameson on the rocks ...
Full throttle Coca-Cola.
Whatever IPA or pale ale is on draft. If they have draft beer but don't have an IPA or Pale Ale on draft, it's not a place I would like to frequent at all. If they don't have draft beer, they'll usually have a nice IPA in a bottle.
I do like a beer, on the continent they have a few decent abbey brewed, in the UK it has to be a good winter warmer or porter. I am a fiend for a good mojito, bourbon (or the best we can get over here), top of the pile is a vodka martini made to Ian Flemmings recipe, just because I can get all the right ingredients here.
Usually a water or a coke .If I'm feeling good,it might be a gin+tonic. I do like the occasional Peroni as well. Sort of reminds of Newcastle without the weight :D.
It's really just strong alchohol with a slightly different buzz, much the way a Martini hits you differently from, say, a vodka or a scotch. That's probably due to the herbal stuff in it.
There used to be a trace amount of some kind of plant toxin in it, but that was found to be harmless in the quantities found in the beverage.
Absinthe was a staple of Parisian cafes from around 1870-early 1900s, and its mystique is far stronger than its effect on the brain. But that's what makes it kinda fun, plus there's a ritual that goes with it, pouring it over a sugar cube on a spoon, etc, to get rid of the bitterness from the wormwood that's in it.
The anti-absinthe laws were abolished all over Europe and here around 2007.
Oh. I thought that Absinthe was supposed to contain traces of opiates and hallucinogins in it.
I loved the Johnny Depp movie about Jack the Ripper, when he prepared his absinthe with the perfect "mixer" of narcotic dropped into a suger cube, and then lit on flame in the drink. I believe absinthe is high enough in alcohol content to maintain the flame.
And, according to what I've read, it does result in delusions and hallucinations in some people.
I wouldn't know...I tried to taste it once, and it was so strong I couldn't even swallow it.
