Beer thirty light, or if I'm feeling dangerous, beer thirty ice.

@eraten: I have actually only had it once, my wife remembered drinking in her before 21 years and wanted to get a bottle to see what it was like now that she is more mature. It was awful, but the colder it was, the less bad it was. I really don't like beer, but I will do a Corona with a lime, or a loaded Corona if beer is required beverage, but my favorite bottled are hard ciders. In wine in like the Low Hanging Fruit sweet red, and in the harder stuff, it's almost always jack and coke.

Big beer fan. Rare Vos by the Ommegang Brewery is my usual choice.

Busch Light, please. It's what I can afford. If someone else is buying? Margarita on the rocks!

Fuzzy navel if I am driving. Straight peach or hairy navel if I am not. I do not drink much but generally choose the schnaaps when I do.

@dravack Angry Orchard isn't terrible as far as mass-produced hard cider goes. The flavour's definitely heartier and thicker than most of the thin, stony ciders one finds at a generic bar. What I like about it? I can order it with a shot of frangelico and mix it in to taste, and it's just like a caramel apple. Delicious!

@jezebelseven: Silly reason to buy a drink but hey its cider can't be that bad. Though there is michelob ultra light cider. Tried it once at outback and it alright but kinda meh compared to Blummers or Woodchuck IMO.

If your serious about finding the Orchard. http://angryorchard.com/#!/find-angry-orchard/

As a college student, I like my drinking to be as efficient as possible, so I tend to stick with stronger mixes like long islands.

@dravack: I haven't tried it but I am a HUGE sucker for cool art on bottles so I might have to track that down, haha!

Well it depends on the category. I doubt anyone here will have heard of any of the beers I like unless they're from Michigan as well, or somewhere near it, so I'll just post types.
Beer: I like most any microbrew/craft besides pilsners, favorites are IPAs (especially doubles and even triples)
Wine: Bordeaux if it's going with meat, chianti if I'm drinking it without a meal
Liquor: Either a Manhattan, scotch and soda, or cuba libre.

I'm kinda curious about trying some different wines. I tried two that I picked up at world market since Woot can't ship 99.99999% of their stock to my state which makes me sad. It wasn't so hot but was probably the ones I picked up. Really should go to a wine tasting I suppose and get samples of lots of kinds.

Anywho I'm off to a late lunch! Thanks for all the responses and can't wait to read the rest.

vote-for2vote-against

Wow.. many more responses than I expected XD thanks but to many for me to @ right now for me to get back to everyone. But...

@jezebelseven: Woodchuck Cider is good over ice. My favorite is Blummers but I can't find it here in Mississippi. Have you or anyone ever tried Angry Orchard? A friend of mine said it was bad but the art on the bottle looks good lol.

@everyone who mentioned Crown & Coke I that drink is pretty good too though not really something I drink often dunno why.

@thedogma: after drinking mainly beer at restaurants and laundry mats (really weird) in Germany pretty much use to the bite now. It was kinda crazy that beer was significantly cheaper than water or coke in some places.

@kjbertetto: lol when you said diesel I started thinking of a mixed drink that I had over there. Coke + Beer. It wasn't half bad but not something I went out of my way to order again. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shandy#Diesel

Wine.

Specifically good wines. More specifically Washington State's (my lovely State) good wines. A few current daily drinker favorites:

J. Bookwalter - Foreshadow Cab - about $20 (93-pt!) - phenomenal, period.

Chateau Ste. Michelle - Cab - insane value $10 - lush and elegant, surprisingly "upscale" palette for the price.

Columbia Crest - Horse Heaven H3 Cab - under $20 in most places - phenomenal value.

Delille Cellars - Doyenne AIX - a beautiful French blend for slightly more celebratory occasions. $42

For beer, I like bocks or dopplebocks the most. Its definitely my favorite style.

For a mixed drink, i like 7 + 7 (also called the Norwegian 15)

Single malt scotch. Neat. Preferably Islay - the smokier the better.

Moonshine, hot off the still. It has flavors that are ephemeral. After sitting in a jug for even a day, many of the flavors of fresh shine vanish.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. End of conversation

Single malt - the older the better.

Barring a bottomless wallet, though, sweet wines (e.g. riesling) and then any beer that doesn't make me smack my tongue. I hate hops.

Also: Jack and coke, to hop on the coke wagon.

Rum, with a capital Aahhrrrr!

Woodchuck Cider is my general go to bottle. I love their Raspberry especially. Strongbow if I'm with my husband because it reminds him of home.

Not a big fan of beer, generally. I did like Wild Blue because it tasted very strongly of blueberries, so I do wonder if there's anything else similar like that. I do have to be careful though because I react to certain malt beverages with a really awful rash.

I typically like a lot of the girly drinks, too. Vodka is my favorite generally as far as spirits go. I've grown fond of the Pinnacle brand's fun flavors. Cake, Gummy, Pumpkin Pie vodka? Yum yum yum.

Woot wine!!! I'm pretty much stuck on reds, moderate to heavy. Pinots are my favorite: I'm in love with the Expressions from the Pacific Northwest.

I also like heaver ales. The Sam Adams Oktoberfest is one of my favorites.

I never developed a taste for anything alcoholic. So all I drink is one of those tiny communion cups of what I'm told is not great red wine just about the first Sunday of every month. My church does offer grape juice but between the kids and pregnant women, they occasionally run low, so I drink the wine. At least the bread used it really good.

@coondogg97: I second your choice on tequila. Centenila Anejo is my choice, but Herradura is good, as well. Straight up, and ice cold. Slides down so easy. Yum! I miss drinking sometimes...

Beer of choice: Shiner (bottle) or Guiness (draft).

Wine: No thanks.

vote-for4vote-against

TEQUILA!!!!

I prefer Anejo's. The "special occasion" tequila for me is Don Julio 1942. When we go on vacation there is this one tequila bar that serves Herradura Seleccion Suprema. WOW!!! Best tequila I have ever had!

Bloody Mary. I like to try them in different places and parts of the country to see the different twists they put on them. Plus they're great breakfast drinks. Best I've had is at the Frosty Bar in Put in Bay.

Second would be cheap beer. Can't stand the fancy stuff. Yuengling is about as top shelf as I'll go.

@bingo969: Standard 750 mL bottle will run you anywhere from $35-$45 depending on what establishment you purchase it from. I thoroughly enjoy it.

I'm a craft beer kinda guy if I have to pick. I also kinda like Scotch on occasion.

I adore beer, the more complex and tasty, the better. My current All-Time-Favorites (subject to change according to mood) are Trippel Karmeliet (tastes like caramel!), Anderson Valley's Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout (tastes like a dark chocolate oatmeal cookie!), and New Glarus' Cherry Belgian Red (tastes like carbonated cherry slurried angels partying on your tongue!).

In the colder months, I am also very much a fan of port. For daily sipping ports, lately I prefer Noval Black (cherries, dark chocolate, midnight kisses) or Grahams 20 year tawny (apricots, caramel, harvest fields at sunrise). For more special occasaions I've got some aged and aging bottles of rubies in the basement.

And for mixed drinks, I love sloe gin fizzes, Boston flips (whisky sour with egg white), Frisco and Pisco sours (lemon lime bourbon sugar stuff egg white concoctions that taste like heavenly alcoholic key lime custard cloud fluff). Omnomnomnom!!

Absolut Vodka Martini - Shaken and dirty. Good drink and fun to order and say

Interesting. I got introduced to the world of beer through wheat beers (like Paulaner, Hoegaarden, Blue Moon, etc). They have lighter flavors and sit well. I still have a soft spot for them, though they are not my favorite any more.

I like lagers and pale ales and ESBs and such now. I also like whiskeys a lot.

vote-for5vote-against

Cheap booze always tastes horrible. I'm not much of a drinker myself but a nice fancy beer (not too dark) or a nice bourbon is good with me.

Blue Moon is a winner in my book. I'd suggest trying a few different things in small amounts to just figure out what you enjoy. I personally don't like hoppy beers, so I stay away from IPAs and the likes. You might be the same.

Next time you're at a bar, try a Jameson on the rocks. It's a good, smooth drink that's not too hard on the wallet. You could try Jack as well, but I'm personally not a fan of it straight. Mixed drinks (rum and coke, for example) can help you get used to the bite of alcohol as well.

DH loves a good strong beer. We love to visit bar/micro-breweries to try their "flights" of different beers. He's not crazy about the wheat beers, preferring the darker ones, but I rather like them,'

Having said that, I'm more of a flavored martini kind of girl. A "friend" told me that the Cosmo is passe, but it's still my go-to drink if I don't think of anything else. Recently found a blueberry lemon drop that was yummy, too. One of my happiest conference-going memories was sitting with a group of friends from around the country (and world) at a martini bar in Miami ordering one of everything on the drink list and passing them around for everyone to sample. Yum! And they don't have to be fruity. I also love a good dirty martini (emphasis on GOOD - some are just nasty!).

Oh, and I tip my hat to the Bloody Mary. There was a thread about this here.
