Hello Neogaf, I have come to ask you what your drink of choice is? Be it beer, liquor, or a cocktail. Post your favorite drink or cocktail recipe here!

My favorite drink: I like whiskeys, especially bourbons. My bourbons of choice are Rebecca Creek, 1776, and Old Forester 1922.

My favorite cocktail is one I learned in Italy’s bar; Lovecraft

Yog Sour’toth

  • Wild Turkey 81 proof bourbon
  • Bergamot Liquor
  • Honey mix
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • 4 drops of Creme de cassis.

Shake it up and put it in cocktail glass. Add the 4 drops of creme de cassis and serve.

My fave is a good Old Fashioned, preferably with a quality bourbon. I cant drink many of them, but it’s my special treat drink if I’m out having a few drinks. A local bar to me used to make a cherry twist on an old fashioned which I really enjoyed. I kept the recipe. Bulleit rye, Luxardo, Martini Rosso, Bathtub cherry brandy and Peychauds bitters. They changed the menu a year back so I stopped going!

A really nice cocktail is the French House cocktail. Infuse gin with thinly sliced strawberries for a week or so. Freshly squeezed lime and a little tarragon. It is REALLY good. Its freshly sweet but not overly, the tarragon gives it a nice slight aniseed kick. Made well it combines really well, nothing too strong, just a very well balanced drink. Anybody in London, you can find it in Hawksmoor restaurants.

I once had a drink in Italy that’s literally just this:

Rye whiskey
Red vermouth
Gin

It hurt me. But it was tasty. It was the only time I liked something with gin in it.

Haha. I have a thing for short cocktails but I definitely can’t have too many of them. I seem to be the only one in my group of friends who likes them! They definitely grew on me, the first one of its type that I had, it took me forever to drink 😂

I rarely drink any alcohol, but I have come to like Johnnie Walker Black when I do. My dad really likes buying a couple bottles for when we meet up for Christmas. I still have about 3/4 of a bottle that I brought home with me from that visit. Haven't touched it yet, but one of these quarantined days, I'll probably get into it.

jack and coke also nice

but you gotta find yourself the fizziest goddamn cola you can find so that the jack dagnols or whatever whiskey you're using doesn't dilute the fizz

jack and coke is the greatest drink ever when you are on a flight, especially if it's from a bottle

jesus lords, you will cum at 30,000 feet

Liquid Cocaine. Equal parts Jägermeister, Goldschlager and 151. You can get it flaming if you want to be fancy. When I used to order rounds this is what I usually got. It'll get you there.

I used to drink a lot of Southern Comfort years ago. I still enjoy it and i usually go for it when i'm drinking outside.

During summer i may prefer beer (Guinness) though.

I don't enjoy alcohol really, but if I'm going to make a drink, Gin & Tonic.

Coffee, Tea, Coke, milk, or water all other times.

What’s the deal with egg white in cocktails
Smoothes the texture of the drink a tiny bit plus you get a foamy top to a drink that otherwise wouldn’t have one. I’m not a fan personally, but I’ve had a few drinks with them that were okay. My partner just flat out asks that they are removed. Bartenders (sorry, mixologists 🤡) sometimes get really funny with her and refuse to make the drink. They can be a funny lot...

I'm a gin guy myself. Go to drink at the bar is a gin and tonic. If I'm drinking a cocktail it's going to be a Singapore Sling. Highly underrated drink in my opinion. My Canadian side loves a good Caesar for around lunchtime as well.

Beers I tend to favour cheap garbage because beer is beer and I don't buy into that whole craft scene. I like Tecate and Corona (rip) during the summer and the rest of the year I'll drink Bud. Although we did get Lone Star up here in Canada just recently which reminds me of good times had down in Texas. Wouldn't mind if Dixie came up here as well but I doubt that one will ever happen.

But I'll drink anything because I'm a degenerate.

Simple drink: Mimosa or Tequila Sunrise.

A bit more time-consuming: Sex on the Beach. The name is what catches the ear, but it's really a darned good drink. The cranberry juice is key--I like 100% cranberry juice, so I put in liberal amounts of it.

For something short, Amaro. It's a bitter-sweet herbal liquer. I'll try anything but Averna is solid.

For something more, Red Vermouth. Spain has been going crazy for Vermut lately and makes loads of good stuff.

For something long, a nice fresh cider.

Top cocktails - Old fashioned or Negroni.

I've quit the beer but the best stuff is very dark and thicc.
