Drinkers Not-So-Anonymous

Post by domsalvia » Sat Feb 03, 2018 7:56 pm

Sitting here this evening enjoying a wee drinky I must assume there are others who like a tipple. If you are a real ale freak with huge beard and bracers, an ever so slightly snobby whisky drinker like myself or a fan of different wines, why not tell us what you're drinking and what it's doing for you.

Me, right now, I'm enjoying a little glass Talisker Storm and it's really quite a refreshing tipple with a lovely airy aftertaste. I've not had it before and I'm finding it very yum and would deffo drink again!

I'm a big fan of cider. Really strong, dry, sediment laden cider. Sure the off the shelf stuff can be nice but the best comes from some local farm and without proper health and safety testing.

The best part of a sediment heavy beverage is the bum roulette you are playing with yourself come the morning! :lol:

I'm so classy I once bought a bottle of vodka that was in one of those huge plastic bottles that washing liquid comes in, complete with built-in handle, called Stalingrad.

One step up from blue meths, basically.

Also, Jaegermeister.

In my student days I would drink Spar own brand vodka, or Spodka as we called it. Happy times :lol:

I once went to visit a friend who was at uni in Leeds, back in the early nineties, and took 5 bottles of Aldi vodka with me, planning on them lasting the whole week I was there....I drank them all in the first weekend and had to buy more. I shouldn't be proud of that but, if I'm honest, that week may well have been the happiest I have ever been.

Students days of drinking don't count in the real world. A change comes upon anyone who steps through the gates of a college or university and their ability to absorb alcohol increases exponentially with every passing day.

I don't really drink enough to get drunk anymore, even at conventions or anything like that but when I was a lad, six pints and I'm gone but Jaeger mixers? All.damn.night. I guess all the sugar and caffeine from coke and red bull go a long way to counteract the alcohol and it balances me out. I think 32 mixers was the most ever in one night and to be honest, I wasn't in that bad of a state. But again, six pints of cider, I'm dead.

I see the truth of it. I didn't ever have a hangover until I hit 25.

I'm not super picky when it comes to a drink, but tonight I'm having cider. :D I do tweet about having margaritas a lot, though. Tequila is my friend <3

I'm a boring 20 year old and only have had wines/beer/vodka/rum, though I have a huge preference for vodka XD. Not a fan of mixed drinks though.

Light on the drinking at the moment due to marathon training.

Usual poison when visiting folks is vodka, out and about whatever lager, ale or cider takes my fancy. Recently have been enjoying Samuel Adams and Blue Moon.

The taste of alcohol for me varies from moderately to extremely unpleasant, so I've decided to embrace that by drinking sour apple four lokos when I get the chance.

That or mixed drinks, the sweeter the better

Sweet drinks you say - I recommend a strawberry daiquiri!

Can't I be ALL of the above?

I don't drink very often - five or six bottles a year at my best - but cider is my go-to when I want a drink. It's not very ~cultured~ but Sainsburys do a kickass Elderflower cider that's to die for.
