Pretty much a beer and wine drinker, but when I drink liquor, it's typically in the form of a vodka martini or an unblended margarita. I'm a big fan of Lemon Drop martinis, as long as they're made properly, but it's rare to find a bartender who can do so.

Wow...like so many others in this thread, I'm not very choosy and the list of liquor drinks that I enjoy is LONG. However, when made correctly, I absolutely love Whiskey Sours, White Russians, and Bloody Marys.

My absolute favorite is a Long Island Iced Tea. Following that are White Russians, a Screw Driver (the first alcoholic drink I can remember drinking), Rum and Doctor Pepper and one I can't name on these family friendly boards.

Single malt scotch - neat. Blends on the rock with a splash.
Margaritas with good tequila on the rocks with salt on the rim (and not too sweet).
Spicy red wines.

I could list others, but these days if I'm drinking I'm either drinking beer or one of the above. I used to drink vodka tonic almost exclusively, but then I discovered the beauty and wonder that is scotch whiskey. Mmmmmmm - oakey.

Is neat just straight up? No rocks? And is there a term for just two cubes? I like Crown with 2 cubes. Or Jack Single Barrel and Coke. Or Capt. and Coke.

I was 31-years-old when I started law school - having already developed an appreciation for scotch, instead of taking the class, I was a T.A.

Apparently not. I was ordering some bourbon for friends recently and asked for it "straight up". It was served chilled - as if shaken - in a martini glass. It was horrible!! (and was Booker's - ruined it!). Luckily I know the bartender and corrected it by ordering it "neat".

Captain & Diet Coke
Jack & Diet Coke
Maker's & Diet Coke
Bacardi Vanila or Razz & Diet Coke

Vodka & Tonic - Brilliant or Three Olives are both good, or Grey Goose

Margaritas - Add me to the list of picky people here. At home I'll usually use Herradura or Tres Generaciones, Cointreau, and lime juice. If I'm making a big batch I've actually found a good mix, "Master of Mixes" brand, just add Tequila and Cointreau or Triple Sec. I make them straight up at home, usually on the rocks when I'm out since they usually seem clueless when I ask for them straight up.

Shots - Buttery nipples, tequila.

Long Island Ice tea
Midori Sours
Original Lemon drop with vodka, sweet and sour and lemon juice
apple martinis
Mike's Hard Lemonade
SoCo and Coke. YUM!
Bailey's on the rocks

I can't handle tequila or mezcal or anything made with either. It took one very drunk night involving lots of mezcal and now I catch just a whiff of it or tequila and it makes my stomach turn. I'm a little queasy thinking about it and that was several years ago.

Yes, it's sad what one bad drunk can do to good booze. The ONLY way I can drink tequila (any tequila) anymore is in a margarita. I used to enjoy tequila shots. But one night I did 17 of them, and now the thought of a tequila shot makes me retch.

My original liquor of choice was bourbon. Then one night I drank a bottle of Jack Daniels and threw up on a cop (relax, I was riding in the back seat of the car that got pulled over and the driver was completely sober). Now, I keep my distance from all bourbon.

I also learned to drink differently than I used to - otherwise there wouldn't be much left that I could stand to simply enjoy, as opposed over indulge in.

I believe JD is more a sour mash whiskey than a true bourbon.

They're both great though

Jack and Coke, but I've been getting into white russians (using vanilla vodka) after dinner.

My #1 favorite is Skyy Citrus on the rocks (more expensive vodka is nice, but not necessary IMO). On occasion, I'll drink top shelf Margaritas on the rocks with no salt. I used to drink beer often. Now it's very rare to see me with a beer in my hand. I also like a nice single malt scotch on the rocks sometimes during the winter months.

Fortunately I've been immune to this phenomenon, so I've never quite understood it even though I know lots of people who've told the same story, particularly with tequila. I've gotten sick on too much tequila as well, but I also knew that had I done a dozen or so shots of vodka, bourbon, rum or whatever (usually in addition to beer), it would have been the same result. My wife doesn't drink any wine at all since a similar night of over-indulgence. Fortunately I never scarred myself for life and can still enjoy a few shots of good tequila, in moderation of course. :-)

Standard: Beam and Diet Coke
Living it up: Bombay Sapphire martini, dirty
Really living it up: Maker's Mark Manhattan
Really, really living it up: Macallan 18 Scotch, neat

Beer is my usual libation (with a side of Jager), but I do like that bourbon! I enjoyed a Cosmo while out for dinner a couple weeks ago, so maybe Wad-ka will make the roster, too.
