my favorite drinks are: Port Wine (Vinho do Porto), Red Wine, and a fine Scotch :P (the port wine is at first, the others have no particular order)

Guinness in the cold months,
but a lager beer when it's warm outside.
I like Bailey's Irish Cream around the holidays.

Guinness (served warm)

Fin du monde, Maudite or killians for cold beer out of a bottle...

I won't think my choices are as refined as yours since they aren't alcohol. Afterall, I am only 17 :).

Preferred Beverages:

1st: Italian Lemon Soda

2nd: Sparkling Apple Cider

3rd: Gingerale

There are some more exotic drinks that I can think of right, now. I would've added them on the list if I remembered their names.

Any exotic Drinks you like?

Well seeing as how I'm 20, and the legal drinking age in America is 21. My alcoholic choices are limited. What I have tried: (I'm a southerner, what would you expect me to do, NOT try them?) :lol
1. Paradise Punch - don't remember what it tasted like, but I ordered, yes ordered two. It was on a school beach vacation. The waitress made a little goof...
2. Malibu Rum jello-shot - So that's what a jell-o shot is... It was over halloween. I wanted to know what the "big deal" about them was. STILL don't know... tasted good though.
3. Strawberry Daquiri - over New Year's at a friend's house. She kept talking about how great it was, so I had to try a little. Good stuff, fizzy as hell.
4. Hurricane - over New Years, my friend, highly drunk at the time, insisted I taste it. Took a sip... :sick Tasted like robutussin. ICK.
5. hmm, there is no 5. Out of those I'd have to say the rum... And no, I've never had a hangover... not YET at least. :lol

My favorite drink? Mtn. Dew or MelloYello and Nestea from the packets, that I make. Non-alc eggnog is good too. Too bad it's only available over the X-mas holidays. I developed a taste for it last year, and now it's gone. :~(

Yes, I agree! South Australian beer, in particular... and don't try arguing with me if you haven't tried it ;) As for "throwing in" vodka and wine, I have to disagree! Thats disgraceful!! Straight beer or no beer, I say!!

On the side, I just found out today that I have an extreme allergy to gluton, which I have no choice but to fight. That means giving up anything with wheat in it, including -goddamnit!- my beloved beer....

So tommorrow night I am going out to drown myself in beer for the last time. My life will never be quite the same again...

So here, a last toast... TO BEER AND HONOUR!!! (...oh hell, i bet i'll get shit for that, hehe)

Johannes de León, ever had a 100 y/o vintage Port wine opened and tasted? There are no words to explain that, out of this world. But you usually know you will not get to taste many more in your life, if any. :(
Then tawny are nice, but ruby doesn't make a thing for me.


Anyway, I like wine above anything else. For white, if dry I like those made with grapes of verdejo (Ribera del Duero), and if with a bit of needle the ones of Rias Baixas, most of all the area of 'O Rosal' (grapes: mostly albariño, with treixadura and loureiro). For red, it depends on the accompanying food... Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Toro, and Priorat. I don't like rosé though.i've had one with 75 y/o.. that was the finest, the best, the supreme drink that ever entered in my mouth... i just can't explain it...

wines from Ribera del Duero (or Ribeira do Douro, in portuguese) are also very good! i also like a cast called Periquita... red wine with boar meat... that is so good... :P

Anyway drinking fresh blood is not necessarily dangerous. Some nomadic peoples including the Huns used to practice drinking fresh blood from their horses without harming them during the long passages through the steppes.
And they were pretty healthy peoples I think.
Probably blood drinking could cause mainly mental problems. I mean Attila.

Quebecois ice cider is heaven in the mouth. So is ice wine from Niagara.

Other than that, I like Bailey's or Kahlua in coffee, Absolut Mandarin, and dry wines.

When it comes to beer, I generally go for microbrews, especially Sleeman. Stella seems to go well with spicy food.

Alcoholic drinks:
1) Single Malt Scotch (Glenfiddich is my first choice), served neat. Rarely on the rocks or with water.
2) Ouzo or Arak (Cask No. 12 and Razzouka respectively), served neat. Tiger's Milk rarely.
3) Port, especially Ruby Port. My usuals (because I'm not rich) are Warre's Warrior Porto 1670, and Taylor Fladgate Special Ruby Porto.
4) Hard Cider - especially from Somerset/Devonshire
5) Mead, esp. Ale type Mead. (brewing my own)
6) Shiner Bock - the only American beer I'll drink
7) Any beer, ale, or lager brewed in Ireland or Britain. Newcastle Brown Ale and John Courage are my top two. Been searching everywhere for Cornish Revolution.
8) Darker German lagers and bocks, similar Czech ones.
9) Cabernets
10) Georgian and Armenian brandies.

Non-alcoholic
1) Chocolate milk shakes
2) Hot chocolate
3) Iced Tea - Lusianne, Southern style
4) Hot black tea with milk and sugar, English style.
5) Italian medium roast Espresso - Milan style.
6) real Ginger Beer
7) Grape juice
8) Green tea
9) Licorice tea
10) real Root Beer (not in the can)

Now we're talking . whiskey .. Van Winkle 13 yr. old family reserve rye . A wonderfull rye whiskey. Scotch.. I like mc callens 60 yr. but at 450.00 a pop its a bit out of my range. So Bowmare for a single malt, Famouse Grouse for a blend. For martinis the only way to go is Boodles. For a mixing gin try Hendricks. Vodka,,,,,.... Love that Vodka! Belvedere, Van Gogh, finlandia and Monapaloa are my faves. Beer.. a nice black and tan with Fullers e.s.b. And the almighty guiness! Dont really care for rum or tequila. Just the smell of tequila remindes me of incarceration! In the morning; a nice Chopin vodka black-russian will do the trick! on a warm afternoon a collins made with hendricks gin , the juices of half a fresh lemon and half a lime, a splash of cointrouea, splash of rock-candy syrup and a splash of 7-up willbe about right. the evening is for Martinis!!! Fill a traditional martini glass with ice and water, let sit. Fill a metal shaker with crushed ice and 5 oz. Of boodles dry gin. Shake it till condensation forms thickly on the out-side of the shaker. Dump the ice water out of your glass and splash 1/2 oz. Of dry vermouth in the glass, twirl it around until the glass'es interiore is evenly coated, Then dump out the remainder. Strain your martini into the glass, garnish with a olive and a lemon peel. And that kids..... Is how its done!

Booze has always fascinated me. My father used to reward us for doing well in our chores etc. with shots of whiskey. I made my first batch of wine at age 13, my first pot-still [for making brandy] at age15, and my first continuous still [for whiskey] at age 17. In my area I am known as one of the most knowlegable folks in the biz. Drinking good alcohol is wonderfull for the body and the mind. Dont drink swill, Life is too short!!!

Always a good topic to get the masses up and running....:P

My drinking preferences have changed over time...I tend to stick to one thing until I can't possibly stand the sight/taste/smell of it anymore, then I'm on to something new. I can remember the first time I ever tried hard liqour...It was the cheapest tequila my friend and I could get our hands on (I believe it was about $9.00 for a fifth) It was called "Bandolero"...Oh god was it nasty stuff! We were young and didn't understand the wiles of alcohol....we managed to split the whole fifth between the two of us before puking our guts out, swearing to never drink again and passing out in a heap on the bathroom floor...Ahhh, the good ol' days, so glad that have passed into obscurity.
Now that I have wisened up a bit when it comes to drinking, I have managed to learn how to appreciate the unique qualities each type of alcohol has (except wine...I have yet to take a sip of wine without cringing. Maybe appreciation, or atleast tolerance of wine comes with age?). I can enjoy a beer or two(I am over the moon for Labatt Blue, it has a mild taste) or let loose with a few shots of Irish whiskey....But at the moment, I am in a brandy phase....I can knock that stuff back all night and manage to maintain a pretty mellow buzz (no shouting obsenities, stumbling around or punching my boyfriend:D ) which is an oddity because I have a rather low tolerance for alcohol.

Iced tea, the house wine of the South.

For an alcoholic buzz I like bourbon (naturally as a Kentuckian) on the rocks. For meals and health I drink wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonay, and Gewurtztraminer -- actually I like most wine as long as it's not Merlot, yuck!)

American beer, unless it's a microbrewery product, hasn't been drinkable since Prohibition. I like Guinness (it's health food) and Beck's dark beer. Never understood the popularity of Heineken although I drank it in Greece because I didn't like Retsina or Ouzo.

Cocktails are coming back in vogue around here. Real weird ones like blue and green ones. You can even buy special table and chair sets for drinking cocktails. Can the end be far off? I went to a party and was served a green one that tasted like apples. Not bad, but it made me feel real purty!

Beer is my favorite, of course. Beer should have its own sub-forum. You guys are going to think I am crazy, but my favorite beer is any Mexican beer. Please let me explain.

Commercial beer in the USA all tastes the same. It is mass produced and so it tastes. Imported European has this also. Heiniken is ok in this category. I don't like German beer as a rule, but Becks is ok. Canadian beer is much better than American beer. Thai beer is good as is beer in Singapore.

But beer in Mexico is in a time-warp. It is done the old fashioned way and they take their time. The beer has a creamy head on it, not soap-suds like American beer. It is smooth going down and each beer has a distictive taste. I haven't come across a bad beer in Mexico, and they have alot. I am not talking about beer at border towns which comes from a tap. These are all watered down, whore-house beer. I mean any beer, bottle, can or tap, in Mexico away from this particular enviornment.

Thanks for reminding me Johannes de León.

By far my favorite beverage is Beer. Not just any beer however.

Here are some of my favorites:

Zywiec, Tyskie, Budveiser(Ceske Budovice), Tuborg, Becks, Lowenbrau, Staropramen, Kozel, Gosser, Grolsch. I'm sure there are many more, which (surprise,surprise) I probably can't recall now. :)

Some honorary Canadian ones:

Steamwhistle, Sleeman Honey Brown, Moosehead, Alexander Keith's India Pale ale.

I know Milesian is going to be upset but something I do not like about Irish, British, and even English culture is the beer they drink.

I know Milesian is going to be upset but something I do not like about Irish, British, and even English culture is the beer they drink. It all seems to look sort of redish brown and taste like beer, not as you drink it, but as it is being vomited back up again and you are tasting it the second time.

I don't like traditional English Ales very much either. Guinness is a good beer though, especially once the ball gets rolling... ;)

Yeah you mean things like Beamish Red, Murphy's, 70 Shilling,etc, those actually are beers/ales as opposed to lager.
I don't really like them very much myself and would almost always choose a lager instead.

Guinness is technically classed as a stout.
It's in a class of it's own and I can confirm that it really does taste a lot better in Ireland :)

Beer: Tuborg Grønt, Faxe, Carlsberg Pilsner Urquell, Grolsch, Leffe, La Trappe, Palm, de Kwak, etc.
Wine: Red Zin, Sekt, Champagne; Mjød (Mead) is the best of the 15-20% alc. range, best homebrewed, dry with fruit adjunct.
Coffee is of course best black, extra strong, not like the hot dirty water they try to sell you in USA.

Nonetheless, water is my favorite drink. Good, sweet unsodiated water. Divine beverage, given us that we should be the loving custodians thereof, to keep it unpolluted and unprivatized, that it may bless us and nourish us as long as we live on this earth. For is it not also the bulk of our very essence?

In California, a new beer appeared. It is called Steel Reserve. It is actually a malt liquor (this means strong beer). Steel Reserve has a logo of "211", which they say is the alchemical symbol of steel. It is also the code name of the Neuschwabenland base, so I had to try it. It was great. One 24 ouncer and I got a buzz. Two, and I never wanted to see the stuff again for three days.

However, the quotation in Phlegethon's posts notwithstanding, we DO make good wines. In direct competitions with French wines, American wines have won prizes. Obviously, from the foregoing, my beverage of choice is wine. I tend to prefer Italian wines and American wines to French wines which I feel have fallen on evil days. I have have had some Rothschild wines of late which are not worthy to bear that honored name.

4 milk with no growth hormones,
5 tart cherry juice (http://think-aboutit.com/health/WhyCherryJuiceWorks.htm)(good for fibromyalgia pain),
6Gerolsteiner (http://www.aquamaestro.com/innerview.asp?catid=12) mineral water(tasty and good for morning sickness),
7 juices(orange, cranberry, grape, pomagranate, tomato, cucumber, apple cider and others usually diluted so they don't spike my bloodsugar)
8 occasional rootbeer, sprite, Dr Pepper and gingerale.

Small beer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low_alcohol_beer) is a healthy traditional drink but I dont like it. Traditional gingerale/ginger beer (http://www.vurt.co.uk/2005/06/15/GingerBeer/) and rootbeer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_beer) are healthy but expensive.

Btw, for some mysterious reason, it is nearly impossible to get strong black tea anywhere in continental Europe; that I've been to at least. What they call "English breakfast tea" is about the closest you can get to what I recognise as tea, but they'll probably just plonk the tea-bag in a mug full of warm water and hand it to you.

When in such a situation you might be better off asking them to serve up what they know, which is coffee.

Morrocan mint tea- I am a huge fan (I am a tea addict anyways). I love to have a few glasses of it when I am reading and smoking a water pipe (with apple tobacco). I don't smoke normal pipe or cigarrettes.

I prefer bottled water (still). The best bottled water around in this country is called "Borsec". Here it is:

Coffee is definitely my non-alcoholic drink of choice. I usually drink about six cups a day. My favorite types of coffee are the those that blend with chicory, like Community's New Orleans blend.

'Moroccan mint tea' sounded good so i found this helpful recipe:

10 fresh mint sprigs, plus 4 for garnish
3 teaspoons green tea
3 tablespoons sugar
4 cups water

Boil water. Pour a small amount in teapot and swish around to warm the pot. Combine the mint and green tea and sugar in the teapot, then fill it with the rest of the hot water. Let tea brew, stirring the leaves once or twice, for 3 minutes. Pour tea through a tea strainer into glass teacups to serve. Garnish with remianing 4 sprigs of mint.

benefits of mint:
Mint has been known since the 17th century as a green-mint hybrid first cultivated in England. It is a hardy, slightly hairy plant with mauve-coloured flowers. The hairs contain a strong-smelling essence and have a spicy taste which inspired its Latin name. It was one of the most appreciated cultivated vegetable plants in ancient times. Bacchus‘ disciples even utilized it to weave circular head-dresses to avoid becoming inebriated. Mint is one of the oldest medicinal plants, and largely owes its continuing celebrity to its unmistakable odour. It plays an important role in phytotherapy due to its essential oil, which has soothing and antiseptic properties.
Also acts as an antidepressant (maybe that's why we like it so much!)


i'd like to also add:

Aromatherapy: Mythical, Magical, or Medicinal?.
Theme Articles
Holistic Nursing Practice. 17(1):8-16, October 2002.
Thomas, Deborah V. EdD, ARNP, CS
Abstract:
Aromatherapy, a branch of herbology, is one of the fastest growing therapies in the world today. Historically, essential oils are best used in the form of massage or bath oils or inhalations. Frequently, it is reported that aromatherapy leaves one feeling uplifted, stimulated, invigorated, or rejuvenated, depending on the oil used. When inhaled, the various aromas penetrate the bloodstream via the lungs causing physiologic changes. In turn, the limbic system, which controls our emotions and memories, is affected. Some consider aromatherapy as mystical or magical; others, however, are attempting to validate empirically this ancient therapy as medicinal.

Thank you most kindly- I copied and stored the information on my pc ;) I have a strong interest in recepies and medicinal uses of herbs and teas( and whatever nature provides for us in terms of remedies and treatments )so any knowledge is welcome.

Not a problem!
i use essential oils (topically and inhalation) almost daily in my work :D
my favorite is grapefruit (vitamin C) oil for those who have a weak immune system or get sick often.. dab a couple drops into the 'armpit' area so that it absorbs into the lymph. especially around finals when our immune systems tend to be weak due to stress. Also a natural mood enhancer, antidepressant.

if you're in the market for aromatherapy i would do research as some oils can be contraindicated for various conditions or diseases. never ingest unless under the supervision of a professional who is licensed to prescribe such treatment.

be sure it is "essential" oil, extracted to it's purest form to experience the full benefit of the plant itself. artificial "fake fragrances" can have harsh chemicals that can do more harm than good. it's best to buy essential oil/plant from it's country of origin. example: lavender lavandula angustifolia from France/Mediterranean.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet.

Function

Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter, norepinephrine. Neurotransmitters are critical to brain function and are known to affect mood. In addition, vitamin C is required for the synthesis of carnitine, a small molecule that is essential for the transport of fat to cellular organelles called mitochondria, for conversion to energy (1). Recent research also suggests that vitamin C is involved in the metabolism of cholesterol to bile acids, which may have implications for blood cholesterol levels and the incidence of gallstones (2).

Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant. Even in small amounts vitamin C can protect indispensable molecules in the body, such as proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species that can be generated during normal metabolism as well as through exposure to toxins and pollutants (e.g. smoking). Vitamin C may also be able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E (1).

Deficiency

Scurvy

Severe vitamin C deficiency has been known for many centuries as the potentially fatal disease, scurvy. By the late 1700's the British navy was aware that scurvy could be cured by eating oranges or lemons, even though vitamin C would not be isolated until the early 1930's. Symptoms of scurvy include bleeding and bruising easily, hair and tooth loss, joint pain and swelling. Such symptoms appear to be related to the weakening of blood vessels, connective tissue, and bone, which contain collagen. Early symptoms of scurvy such as fatigue may result from diminished levels of carnitine, needed to derive energy from fat, or decreased synthesis of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine (see Function). Scurvy is rare in developed countries because it can be prevented by as little as 10 mg of vitamin C daily (2). However, recent cases have occurred in children and the elderly on very restricted diets (4, 5).

The discussion of medicinal herbal drinks should go to this thread (http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=7444).

I have noticed that Splenda iced tea has started to disagree with me lately. My husband likes the southern sweet tea but not what it does to his waistline. I like tea any which way but artificially sweetened.

My intention is not merely to annoy you, but do you really think that makes any difference, apart from lightening your pocket?
The levels of fluoride in tap water are hundreds of times lower than those found in toothpaste, if you use a fluoride tooth paste you almost certainly ingest more of the substance from that source than you do from your tap water. On top of that, most soft drink and soda manufacturers like Coca Cola and Sprite and no doubt fruit juice manufactures, who use concentrate, all put municipal water into their products.So your ingesting fluoride any time you drink any of those products anyway.

I go to great pains to find and use fluoride-free toothpastes. I don't know whether or not fluorides are present in bottled soft drinks, though they may well be, but I KNOW that our drinking water is fluoridated. [I voted against it over 50 years ago.]

The Horned God

^ If you don't use a flouride tooth paste then you are getting 99.9&#37; less fluoride than most people. Apparently though, fluoride can be found in plenty of products (http://www.fluoridealert.org/f-sources.htm#I) that are processed using water, not just in drinks.However the lions share of it is found in toothpaste at around 1000 parts per million (ppm). Most other sources have only 1 or 2 ppm of fluoride.
