Regarding Alchohol

So, im looking for an alcohol that still tastes like alcohol but also has some sort of delicious flavor. Not one of those smirnoff twisters or mikes that have alcohol in them but cover up the tast with carbonation and tons of added flavor but also somthing a little more high class (but not too expensive) then burnettes.

suggestions?

Beer...

If you want higher class. Beer in a tall glass.

Crown Royal is pretty good too.

Why do you want the alcohol if you don't like the flavor? There is nothing wrong with not drinking.

Liquor or something with less alcohol?

I really like Absolut Vanilia, vanilla flavored vodka. The vanilla flavor is really subtle, not overpowering at all. Quite nice to sip on.

Haha, I have some fun stuff!

1 shot vanilla vodka (I prefer Stoli Vanil)
1 shot Creme de Cacao dark
splash Kahlua
Milk or cream.
Mix it all in a short glass with some ice. Sip on it slowly and it tastes like chocolate milk! Go faster and you taste the alcohol.

Mojitos are also really, really good when made well.

Oh! This one sounds weird, but it's goooooood. We drink it at all the family events on my dad's side (Mexican side of the family).
1 shot tequila (any kind, but I prefer mid-range for this, Cuervo Tradicional for me)
juice of 1-2 limes
Pinch of salt.
DIET coke. Has to be diet, regular tastes weird with this (this is the only time I'll drink diet soda)
Mix it in a medium sized glass (with salt on the rim if you're into that).

Mango nectar and rum (light works best) is always, ALWAYS good.

Vanilla Vodka and coke.

Or go with something traditional and nutritious...sangria!

That's all I can think of for now....

How about hard cider? There are various ways of making it--pear and apple, and I have had raspberry, peach, black currant, etc.

If you're even around in the morning, with or without your sight, you're doing it wrong!

Delicious is a subjective quality.

I find peaty single malt scotch to be delicious, yet other people think it tastes like bourbon that someone poured through a houseplant.

If you want something that still tastes like alcohol, then don't do the disservice to the distiller and purchase something with all kinds of flavours which are added after the fact. Single malt scotch, small batch bourbon, craft distilled rum, and gin all have subtle differences between brands and varieties based on the fermentation ingredients.
Save the sodas and artificial added flavours for the bottom shelf mixer booze: Popov vodka or Old Dan Tucker whiskey.
