Bottle of lager for the most part. No real preferences for which one.
On a night out i'll usually dabble in the harder stuff... Double Jack Daniels and Coke is the most likely option!
"Although absinthe was vilified, it has not been demonstrated to be any more dangerous than ordinary spirits. Any psychoactive properties attributed to absinthe, apart from that of the alcohol, have been much exaggerated"
The reason you couldn't drink the absinthe might be that it absolutely has to be mixed with water; the usual ratio is about 1 part absinthe to 3-5 parts water. The water is poured over a sugar cube that sits on a slotted spoon to get rid of bitterness also. So if you tried to drink straight absinthe, you'd probably have a very bad experience!
In some parts of Europe -- this never happened in the 19th century, it's modern -- they soak the sugar cube in absinthe and light it, then drop it into the water/absinthe mixture.
Needless to say, shortly after imbibing the mixture, the Depp character had visions of the "Green Fairy".
If I can find it I like . I'm in more hoppy craft beers at the moment. So much that it has ruined my taste for any "regular" beer. I just can't drink them. My fall back, like many others here, is always Guinness.
Sometimes in life you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
