    What's your tipple?

    little bored so this one might get closed or it might be the most interesting topic to grace this section in years

    So whats you tipple, whats ya poison on a night out?

    Personally I prefer my bitters and real ales over here, although some of the ales do have some unfortunate names. Never good asking the barman for a bishops finger

    I'm quite an avid wine drinker too, having run restaurants and some exclusive members clubs I pride myself on my ablities to pick good wines and champagnes. Possibly one of the few areas I would consider myself to have some expertise in (cos it sure aint computing )

    My favorite brew is probably 'Dead Guy Ale' which is made by Rogue Ales... as far as shooters, I like a 'red headed slut' ... and my favorite mixed drink is probably Captain and Coke... as far as on the rocks, I would have to stick with Johnny Walker... or perhaps wild turkey

    with tomato juice.

    wow... I haven't had a 'redbeer' in a long time... I might have to remedy that ... do you add salt and pepper to yours? I was always taught that it is proper to stir it with a butter knife... but who knows... my friends are crazy...

    Cuba libre all the way

    (with Bacardi please, Havana Club makes me do strange things after a couple of them and I usually end up with my head in a bowl)

    Bishops finger is nice but I like Theakstons Old Peculiar in the house and a nice pint of Guinness Extra Cold in the pub.

    In my younger years it was Navy Lambs with a touch of cola, just enough to take out the spike, and a good ale,(Molson X or Oland's) and once in awhile some Mescal that I managed to get on some of my trips..."go for the worm"..

    Some places you can get a juice called Snap E Tom. It's already spiced. There's
    also V8 juice or plain old Campbel's Tomato.
