Out for a session - Guinness or some local ale and then some jager bombs as a little livener followed by some shots of Patron XO Cafe (very drinkable but puts you off coffee the next morning)
Out for a meal - a nice Argentinian Malbec
At home - water or fruit juice

Another vote for JD and coke here - Absoultely love the stuff, first sip is like saying hello to an old friend

For big nights out the format is usually a few cheeky beers to get things going before switching to multiple rounds of double JD's and cokes accompanied by either Jaeger bombs or Sambucas.

Happy day to day with the odd beer (Moretti) or bitter (partial to something from Harveys) but I do like nice wine.

Just pulled out a case of this for Christmas....

For Christmas and New Year you want Moose Milk.

Some preamble on it.

http://www.shooterswoodfiregrill.com...of-moose-milk/

Used to spend loads of time in Halifax Canada with the Canadian Air Force or Norway (inside Artic Circle) with Norwegians and Canadians.

This was one of the drinks of choice, excellent Canadian stuff.

The normal way is without those eggs etc lol.

The one I use.

1 Litre Bacardi
1 Litre Tia Maria
1 Litre Smirnoff
10 Litres milk (adjust as required)
1 Litre Ice cream (full fat creamy not cheap watery stuff)
Chocolate flakes for the top.

It takes a little bit of fiddling depending on how much milk is in it.

It really does get things moving

It's actually dead easy to make in one to one mixes. Using a blender, then pour in to tall glasses.

Nice bit of chocolate spread over the top.

Very moreish...

Garage List
Ale (preferably of the real variety).

Lucky to have the Dark Star brewery not too far away In fact if you're in the area then I'd heartily recommend you pop into their shop where they'll be happy to give you tasters.

I love a good pale ale, whisky wise I'm a big fan of the Japanese whiskies...
as for wine I'm a big fan of most of the ranges from Hentley Farm and Two Hand Wine in Barossa Valley.

At the moment it's Bourbon.
Blanton's Original Single Barrel and Buffalo Trace to name but two.
But I've also got some Single, Cask Strength, Malts to return to at times of need.

A good vintage port for me must be the finest drink.
A couple of years ago I had a bottle of Fonseca 1970 port and nothing has surpassed it,
absolutely nothing. It was fantastic. Can't say that about any other drink!
Only a bottle of 1963 could possible beat it!
PS still have the empty bottle!
Cheers!

These days I enjoy a nice glass of red the most. Been buying from Naked Wines for a few years - do a lot of nice wine at decent prices. But the main attraction for me is that they develop fledgling wine producers so you end up with (usually) lovely wine that isn't over produced.

If anyone is interested I can get you a referral if you ping me, as sometimes they don't take new members without one. There's probably also a few ús of free wine in it for the both of us
