None at the moment, as my liver and humours are in need of some serious reconstruction work. :| But I have been known to enjoy fine, cold Russian or Polish vodka - goes down like water with cold and warm snacks.

And German Pils, especially in the summer. Jever for instance.

In a cupboard I have a homemade Bäsk - vodka flavoured by Wormwood, which I harvested myself this late summer. This is holy water for traditionally-minded Swedes. It is drunk at Midsummer's eve, with the pickled herring and fresh poatoes.

I have tasted it to correct strength, but it will not be enjoyed until next summer at the earliest, because it does grow with age.

Stiegl, Guinness Draught, Eggenberg, Pilsner Urquell, Goesser, Skullsplitter Orkney Ale, Molson XXX and Molson Canadian, Boddington's, Bass, Warsteiner Dunkel, Edelweiss Hefe-Weizen, Franziskaner...

I drink wine when its around but I'm really not knowledgeable about it at all, other than the fact that I like red wine and Sekt. :thumbup

As far as liquor, I stick to Kentucky Bourbon, mostly Maker's Mark and less often Wild Turkey.

I said beer & wine, which is what I habitually drink on most occasions...

I must add I am also a sucker for Absinthe, Jaegermeister & Metaxa ;)

Some greek stuff too, like ouzo (http://www.nestorimports.com/Plomari/glass_Ouzo_Plomari.jpg), tsipouro (http://www.tirnavosimports.com.au/images/Atsipourotyrnavos.jpg) & raki (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/1/19/Raki2.jpg/180px-Raki2.jpg) (Bulgarians have it too, though theirs tastes differently).

All three are anise-based, and they differ at the procedure of making and the degrees of alcohol.

Ouzo with octopus by the sea-side in the summer is a serious reason for one to visit Greece :P

I also like some coctails, like Bloody Mary.

On the other hand, I cringe at the mere smell of tequilla, sambuca & Southern Comfort :thumbdown

It depands from what you make it (it can be yellowish). Here, for example is the picture of a plum rakija (Šljivovica - Shljivovitza). It something like a brandy, a plum brandy.

Essentially my drink of choice is straight vodka. Preferably Russian brands like Stolichnaya. However I also care for Polish brands like Belvedere. I have nothing against Grey Goose(French) or Absolute(Swedish).

As for beers: I usually go for Canadian brands like Labatt Blue or Molson. I also like Pilsner Urquell. I also drink Guinness.

Wine I'll drink when I dont wish to get too drunk.

I'm probably the exact opposite. When my friends and I played drinking games in Greece, I found it really hard to drink ouzo and raki. I had to stick with vodka or brandy. The few times I tried Absinthe I felt sick also. I feel sick anytime I smell/taste aniseed, so that's probably what the problem is. I think it's also to do with me having a traumatic, nauseating experience with Pernod at a young age (the first alcohol I tried). I don't have any problem with downing tequila or Southern Comfort. :thumbup

My favourite drink has to be Guinness, though.

You have to try a raki(rakija) my uncle made last summer. This thing has 70 % alcohol. After 0.09 l (3 glasses) of this I had a total blackout for 5 hours.

Heheh, 70%, that's not bad. The raki we were drinking in Greece was rather cheap and nasty. We booked an all inclusive hotel, with a free bar, but to our dismay all the drinks were really crap. The only good thing was Greek beer, Mythos. Anyway... I think the stuff I tried tasted of olives. I'd love to try some of your uncle's rakija, even if I do blackout. The nastiest drink I've ever tried was something my friends and I call 'the bastard'. We basically threw all the spirits we could find at a house party into a pint glass, then took turns seeing who could down the most. We were pretty wasted by the end of it. :thumbup

BEER BEER BEER UNSER ELIXIER

Did you know that:

Beer is the oldest human-produced beverages, dating back to at least the 7th millennium BC (which means beer is prior even to bread), and recorded in the written history of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Some anthropologists believe that beer was actually a dietary staple before bread.

The modern anthropologist Alan Eames believes that "beer was the driving force that led nomadic mankind into village life...It was this appetite for beer-making material that led to crop cultivation, permanent settlement and agriculture."

In fact, beer is referred to as "liquid bread" because beer is rich in calories, beer has no fat, beer has no cholesterol, beer is caffeine free, and beer contains no nitrate.Brewer's yeast is known to be a rich source of nutrients such as magnesium, selenium, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, and B vitamins.

Actually from the Middle Ages through to the Industrial Revolution beer was certainly safer to drink than plain water.And it’s because back then water-borne diseases were widespread and as we know in fermented beverages like beer or wine illness-forming bacteria are not common because of the boiling of water in brewing, and the alcohol presence in both beer and wine which actually neutralize/kills all sorts of bacteria.



Some greek stuff too, like ouzo (http://www.nestorimports.com/Plomari/glass_Ouzo_Plomari.jpg), tsipouro (http://www.tirnavosimports.com.au/images/Atsipourotyrnavos.jpg) & raki (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/1/19/Raki2.jpg/180px-Raki2.jpg) (Bulgarians have it too, though theirs tastes differently).

Not much of a drinker though. Most of the time I just have beer, I can rarely enjoy Akuavit as it is almost impossible to get. For the brewskies, Heineken, Warsteiner and Stella Artois are good choices. Grölsch, a Dutch brand, is probably the best I've ever tried. Belgian beers are also great. These imported ales are definitely of the highest quality, which obviously comes at a price.:(

http://www.brauerei-gutmann.de/upload/4400b1b5X103eea70f62XY6cab/255748877_weizenbock_1_.jpg

"Gutmann Weizenbock", is my most favourite beer. I generally enjoy wheat beer the most because it means home, tradition and great taste to me. After "Gutmann" beers, i like "Franziskaner" Weizen, "Tucher" and "Paulaner" Weizen! All of them are just fantastic beers. I must not forget "Schöfferhofer Weizen", as well.

http://www.hausnummer-online.de/fotos-a/franziskaner-klein.jpg

I hardly drink other kinds of beer, but sometimes i enjoy Pils. Altbier or Kölsch is the worst beer in the world. The Prussians dont have good beers ;)

Ah, and i have to add, that i like exquisite Met, as well. There are cheap kinds, but they dont taste very good: the earlier you taste to concrete alcohol the lower the quality of the Met is, i suppose. I once had a bottle i bought at a Medieval Market in Zons, i drank it in so small steps because it was just so good: there was a very special taste, it had a certain development on my tongue, hard to describe, actually. I think it is a charactertrait of good wine that it has no concrete but a differentiated, more complex taste. I dont really like red wine (yet?).
But well, this is only one point of why i like Met, there is an ideologic point in it, too: i personally ally Met with a kind of archaic heroism of our Ancestors i feel the need to salute to. Did you read what Tacitus wrote about our Ancestors, about their drinking habits almost 20 decades ago!? I know an incredibly strong feeling of faszination, admiration and pride but longing and grieve, as well in my bosom when i think of the myriads of battles fought, of the myriads of men who had a honourful idea to die for, of the great history of our people, our land; and i like to crown these hours of commemmoration with a cup of honey wine.

What is your favorite alcoholic beverage? I have been drinking and the idea has struck me to ask my fellow Germanics what their preferred form of alcohol may be.


My top picks are:

1. Jaegermeister - Wonderful when served ice-cold...could drink a whole bottle.

2. Captain Morgan's Rum - Gives me a pirate-y New World feeling.

3. Any Vodka but Stolichnaya! - Stoli makes me want to die but on a whole Vodka is a good time. A very warm drunkenness...suppose it comes in handy in cold Russian winters.

4. Yuengling Lager - First beer distillery in America and has stood the test of time for a reason. It's a local beer in Pennsylvania.

5. Molson Canadian - First beer distillery in North America. Once again it has stood the test of time. I am newer to Molson but so far it has been pretty good.

I like Ebblwoi (Hessian Cider) It's much stronger and you taste the apple more than in Cider. The blue blue painted jug is called "Bembel".

Here a picture - it's a traditional drink here:
http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/253/03frankfurtebbelbembelvj6.jpg

Then of course alot of german beer brands. Mostly also the unknown ones,
because alot of 10 beer-brands in germany who are not very well-known taste very great! Sometimes even better than known brands.

Concerning Schnapps and Lik&#246;r i like J&#228;germeister and Kr&#228;uterhexe

I also love german wine from the "Rh&#246;n"-Area in Germany. But also some french wines from Lorraine/Lothringen.

Sometimes i also drink a cocktail, but that's quite rare.

North American beer (like Molson) tastes like pee. It's disgusting. I hate it. ^^

I guess my favourite beers would be Beck's (cheap and good), Newcastle Brown, and Boddingtons.

I do like Stoli actually but my favourite vodka is Finlandia.

And I like mead.

Death and the Sun
Saturday, September 22nd, 2007, 07:33 PM
I knock back a few lagers most days. My favourites are all the common Finnish ones except that chemical-tasting dishwater Karjala, as well as Heineken. I also like German wheat beers and English and Irish ales.

I'm not a huge fan of wine, but I can guzzle down a bottle with a nice dinner (preferably prepared by yours truly). White or red, depending on the food. I mostly prefer Californian wines.

I never drink any mixed drinks. All of the hard stuff comes in shots for me. Vodka (Stoli, Ruskii Standart) or Kossu (Finnish vodka), gin (yes, I drink gin dry -- and ice-cold).

My favourite whisky is Laphroaigh but I limit myself to one bottle a year of the stuff. Most of the whisk(e)y I inbibe will be J&B or Jameson. Btw I really dislike Jack, Jim and all the other American whiskeys.

I also like cheap-ass Spanish brandies as well one of Blaxis's faves, Metaxa. No fancy-pants French cognac for me, thank you.

Others:

Apfelkorn

Gammel Dansk

Bristol Cream and some other ports

Riga Balsam, a.k.a. Black Death :p

Red wine. Nothing too expensive and nothing too cheap.

Occasionally I will have a couple of gin & tonics, Baileys Irish liqueur or even the odd Tia Maria and coke (an ex-girlfriend got me onto that).

I am fond of beer for some reason.. allthough I like the glass of wine as well, when I am "dining" with my best friends, but these wines are mainly Italian (so it is from a none Germanic origin)


http://blackwithblue.free.fr/IMG/jpg/Westmalle_Tripel_Portrait_small.jpg

Westmalle Tripel - very strong beer from Belgium (Flanders) (I just need three of them to because absolutely drunk), nice powerful taste.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/4e/Kwak.jpg/494px-Kwak.jpg

Or Kwak, also Belgian (Flemish): they tend to serve it in a traditional yard glass: it tastes somewhat sweet but has a real character.


http://homepages.cs.ncl.ac.uk/james.nicholson/images/show/NewcastleBrownAle.jpg

And sometimes.. when I visit an Irish or English pub I'll get me a pint of Guinness or Newcastle Ale.


@Boche (I like your name btw :P): Can you buy that Ebblwoi only in your region? I am a bit intrested in traditional drinks.


@Freydis: Mead? Where can one buy it, nowadays? I have been trying but...niente

My poison is definitely the 14-year-old Clynelish Single Malt Coastal Scotch Whisky. As a connoisseur put it:

"The colour is intense gold.
The nose, rather peaty, reveals a pleasant sea freshness. It goes on to fruits, spices and malted barley on a background of floral hints.
The palate confirms the nose and is slightly peaty.
The finish is dryer and is also marked by smoked barley and some salted hints."

The whisky comes from the east coast of Britain's northernmost county: Sutherland. It's called Sutherland, because for the Vikings coming from Norway it lay south of where they came from, hence the name!

Mainly beer:

-Stella-Artois
-Warsteiner
-Löwenbräu
-Newcastle
-Yuengling
-Heineken
-Amstel
-Guinness
-Harp
-Hacker-Pschorr
-Samuel Adams
-Blue Moon
-Magic Hat

I also like herbal liqueurs like Jägermeister, Goldschläger, Wild Turkey, Southern Comfort and Disaronno. I'll have the occasional merlot and cabernet savignon every now and then.

Beer will usually be my first choice:

Stouts: Beamish, Murphy's, and (if there's nothing else) Guinnes. I've yet to encounter a non-UK stout that's any good

Lagers: Sam Adams (probably one of the best mass market beers produced by the US) and Harp

Ales: Kilian's, Swithwick's, Newcastle, etc.

When it comes to hard stuff I'll usually stick to Bärenjäger or Scotch.

I'm not much of a wine drinker, but am VERY fond of (home-brewed) mead.

Past weekend I found myself with a bottle of Crown Royal...

"A blend of distinct, full bodied Canadian whiskies matured to perfection in white oak barrels. Crown Royal was first created to celebrate the King and Queen of England's visit to Canada in 1939. Crown Royal's perfectly blended whisky has become the standard of excellence for Canadian whisky."

I must say it's fairly strong and goes down smoothly. I have to add it to my favorites.

and on hot summer day a fruity iced drink hits the spot.:D

You see, Americans aren't very specific with their alcohol. We take what we can get. Someone with a specific drink that they enjoy is considered a bit eccentric...i.e. European... I don't know how many times I've been considered odd for liking a nice thick liquor like Jaegermeister over something stupid like a Bud Light.

PS. Once when I was in New York someone suggested I have John Courage ale. It's a type of English beer. I had never had it before but I admit it was the best I ever had!

Hard Cider is my drink of choice. Jagermeister, frangelico, cherry kafka or decent liquors are nice once in a while. I am out of the habit of having anything.

Hmmm.....

-Wine (white or red)

-Beer (various kinds)

-Absinthe ;)

-Jaegermeister

-Brandy (Metaxa)

-Ouzo, tsipouro or raki (that's the greek stuff :p)

-occasionaly, some alcoholic beverages such as Smirnoff Ice, Bacardi Breezer, Gordon's Space, etc...

Ouzo, that is a quick trip into insanity for me. I just drink beer. Usually this is just a popular American beer like Bud or Coors. Moving up the scale, it is Corona, Heineken (dark), Fosters. Actually any Mexican beer or Canadian beer is OK.

I like:

Bourbon - JD, although too much of it fires me up :D
Vodka - Smirnoff
Schnapps
Victoria Bitter, which is a beer - I love my beer ice cold and not room temperature! I'll only drink Aussie beer, but I'm also partial to a Guinness
Mead
Mulled wine
Lambrusco
Haven't had Ouzo for years but like the aniseed taste
Sambucca is similar
Baileys Irish Creme
Stones Ginger Wine
Cider

I'll even drink the so-called girly mixes like Vodka cruisers and Barcardi breezers simply as a refreshment occasionally.

Right now I am drinking a Peroni. Birra Superiore my ass.

As far as beers I like pilsners, lagers, wheat beers, and some red ales. I definitely prefer European beers, although there are a lot of good North American beers most of you Europeans have never heard of.

I'm not a fan of wine. Sorry, I tried, I just don't get it.

As far as hard liquor goes I drink mostly whiskey and vodka in cocktails, occasionally gin. I like shots of tequila too. I like Jagerbombs, but Jager shots are awful (same for Ouzo and all those other spiced liqueurs). When its time to be classy or emasculate other members of my dinner party, I'll go Scotch on the rocks.

I drank the last of my bottle of Captain Morgan and I am currently finishing the last of my Jameson whiskey. As of late I have been really into the hard liquors. I don't know why other than they seem like more alcohol for less money. I'm getting nostalgic about beer however and am dreaming of getting a case of John Courage which is a beer I've only had once but was one of the best. It's a very ueber-American beer. It has a Minute-man on the front and tries to invoke Colonial era Boston as far as I can tell.

@ Cuchulain: I'm not sure I get wine either. It seems like just about any occasion that would require wine could easily be replaced by a Scotch or something else of that type. I suppose that it's more of a dinner drink but...well, beer seems fine. ;)

I like hard alcohol most of all. I go mostly for Smirnoff Vodka. Gets the job done right quick, and there aren't any bad sugars to give wicked hangovers.

As for beer usually anything German, but esp. Loewenbrau, Franziskaner.

I also enjoy gin and tonic, Bombay London Dry gin. Whiskey (uisge Gaelic for "water" amusingly enough) contains sugars which can cause splitting headaches.

I used to drink a lot of wine, but that affects my throat too much and leads to yucky hangovers.

The basic staple of an occasion when alcohol is consumed, would be beer en masse, the kind that comes canned and cheap, but poured into a glas for the feel and sophistication ;). My palet simply isn't worth blowing money on expensive brands since I can't taste differences that go beyond "bitter" and "watery" anyhow.

A glas of whiskey (i.e the generic kind which is found at parties) can be rather pleasant after a few beers, and I have been known to drink a few vodka drinks in the past, but I stay clear of hard liquors mostly, it's easy to overdo it when it tastes like lemonade and drinking it straight is to invite trouble on my part as I have a rather low tolerance level.

Wine is pretty horrible, I couldn't down a glas of it.

At the times I do drink alcohol it's mainly Sailor Jerry rum mixed with Coca-Cola or orange juice.

Another drink I like is English Mead.

You have Kronenbourg in Norway ? :-O

My favorite beverage is blond beer with "Amer bière" (literally "bitter beer", which is a 18% preparation with oranges, gentian and some secret spices).

(E Fischer's bier met Wolfsberger's Amer bière, 100% Elsässisch :))

Otherwise I like amber, blond and white beer, pure Jägermeister and pure slightly aromatized Vodka.

Akvavit and Absinthe are my favorite liquors. They are pretty different from each other as far as taste goes but they are both really distinctive. I have several beers/ales that I really like but Franziskaner Weissbier, Flying Dog, and Chimay are my favorites. I like red wine but whenever I drink it I have really strange dreams so I stick to Riesling.

Southern comfort with lime and lemonade is a long-time favourite tipple of mine :)

Another beverage I used to enjoy was a mixture of cider and lager (known as a 'snakebite') but they eventually stopped serving this in most pubs and clubs because the idiots used to get completely p*ssed on it and then cause trouble :( I had a few DIY snakebites over the Xmas period though and it's still a great drink, if you select the right brands of cider and lager to make it with :lightbeer

My primary libation is craft beer brewed in my wonderful home state of Oregon.....home to "Beervana" (Portland), and boasting nearly twice as many breweries per capita as Germany!

Deschutes, Fort George, Hair of the Dog, Pelican.....

I'm a big fan of Warsteiner Dunkel as far as beer goes. If we're talking about about mixed drinks I'd have to either go Kraken rum and Dr. Pepper, or a shot of Captain Morgains Spiced in a glass of Chimay, red label.

If having a 'few' then I enjoy dark strong ales like Old Peculiar or Sneck lifter.
On the other hand for a good session or on a match day (drinks before, during the interval and after the game) I prefer a lighter ale such as Timothy Taylor's Landlord.
Trying new beers is always an experience so, when there's a local festival I make a point of attending especially when international brews are on offer.

As far as spirits are concerned my preference is for clear liquor esecially gin.

I like soft red wine, and some cocktails, such as bloody marys, purple cows, screwdrivers, and mudslides. :)

A really good substitute for vodka when making screwdrivers is Southern Comfort. It's called a Southern Screw. Mmmm. ;)
