I don't drink alcohol. I did a bit in the past, but I can't even say I fondly remember those times. It tastes awful, it's toxic, it has better uses than drinking. I do quite like certain kinds of kvass though, which bear a faint resemblance to beer in flavour. Naturally, I think it's much tastier than beer.
I can't drink any alcohol because of my liver, and also because of medicines, but I hate alcohol anyways. I do like homemade Butterbeer and hot wine though. And any dish cooked in alcohol so the actual alcohol evaporated and only the taste remains. I love this.
Shouldn't rum be a part of this? Or would that count as liquor? I prefer rum. There's an excellent family recipe for a cure to sore or damaged throat we call, "Hot lemonade". It uses honey, orange tea, lemon, and a small amount of rum. Of course, I wasn't allowed to even taste it until recently.
Ambrosia No, I'd say it depends on the situation. Red wine for the relaxing evening, drinks for the parties. Beer works, and it's cheap, but it has the clever attribute of getting me radically drunk and drowsy really quick. *hundred bottles 'o beer on the wall...*
I'm 17 and, of course, I'm too young to drink. But when I'm 21, I'll choose wine because I'm not a heavy drinker of alcohol and the price is high enough for a person who can only drink a little. I mean a little.
I never cared much for wine. But as for spirits/liquor, I enjoy a good whiskey like Jack Daniel's or a rum.
But when It comes down to it, nothing beats a finely crafted beer. I have been tasting all sort of beers and each on has had an amazing uniqueness. I've tried a German Dunkel, Jamaican Red Stripe, and English ales like this one called Hobgoblin. As a patriot, I drink beers from Samuel Adams. I'm very fond of that Boston Ale of theirs.
However, the one beer that stands out to me is a Guinness. Dammit, that roasty taste is unbelievable! I find myself buying at least two of them when getting a variety pack for beer tasting. So far I've taste every Guinness, The Extra Stout, Foreign Extra, Draught, and Black Lager, and this Irish pub ale That Guinness also owns. Can't remember the name of it though. I'll be drinking Guinness for a long time.
