What do you drink?

Just because I'm drinking.

And I want to know if anyone else has a drinking preference.

I previously went through a hilarious "Bourbon Connoisseur" phase with a mate where we bought the cheapest bourbon with the funniest name and rated it. I've been through quite a lot - mostly rubbish.

These days, in Melbourne, the craft beer scence has exploded and there's really good stuff. I've also had a great variety of wines and am enjoying that more than ever. Also, went to a scotch tasting night and learnt about how varied they are.

So, do you drink at all? And if so, what's your poison?

Living an hour from California's Wine Country (Sonoma >>> Napa, btw) and having read a chunk of the amazing The Drops of God, we're sort of into wine now >_> Our local favorites tend to be from around the Sonoma (city) and Dry Creek areas-- the latter is well known for its zinfandels.

Also, Cyrus is now a craft beer enthusiast, but I can't stand the stuff. I do like a good fruit cider, though.

I am a Cider guy myself. I can't drink beer as it badly disagrees with my stomach. My favourite would be Westons Twist though I can never find anywhere that has it. That stuff tastes amazing warm.

Whenever I am in a supermarket I always check to see if they have some new cider in I haven't tasted before. I also brewed my own cider once. What I ended up with wasn't amazing but it was strong as hell, drinkable and gave you one hell of a hangover. Which to be honest was better than I expected haha

My tolerance for alcohol has diminished over the past few years to the point that I get hungover if I have more than a single cider, so I pretty much gave up drinking last March. I was big on liquor! Vodka, gin, rum, tequila, whiskey... I loved them all in more or less equal measure, though I especially enjoyed whiskey. Few things were more satisfying to me than a well-made Old Fashioned. :) Nowadays I tend to just have a cider every couple of months, which is perfectly fine by me.

These days, it's mostly beer whenever I'm out to a bar (very seldom) or over at someone's place and they have beer in the fridge. I'd really like to try more beers this summer.
