Goldschlager. My story involves 1/5th ingested in 2hrs, followed by an intense game of the cardinal puff. i passed out twice. first time they drew a chalk outline around me with comet, second time i was wrapped around the john. the next day i couldn't get off the ground, and was hung over for 36 hours. and yes, since you didn't ask, it was a toga party. i still gag at the smell of cinnamon.

Wait, I misread, I like Borboun. I like liquor in general.

Anywho, as far as liquor goes:

Scotch is my best friend. I remember pounding probably 3/4 of a bottle of 4 euro scotch last summer and dancing on stage at La Feria de Santiago in Spain with my friend and a goggle of 12 year old Spanish girls. We got a standing ovation from all the people and a ton of high-fives on our way out.

Tequila is horrendous straight. Sangria is good if it's actually prepared, it's terrible if you buy it in a box at a supermarket. Goldschlager, while gimicky and cool, tastes awful. Gin is terrible. Some vodka is good, the Absolut or Smirnoff suck. Oh, I love whiskey- bourbons are usually nice. Anything with a pirate or colorful bird on the bottle is probably bad. MD-2020/Irish Rose/ any other bum wines you can think of are so bad it's funny.

Parliament brand vodka. The only way I'll ever buy it again is for the purpose of stripping paint.

Tequila. One bad night can ruin a good thing. Ever take a nap on a gas pump?

My least-favorite, straight up, is rum. Followed closely by Gin.

My favorite is good single malt scotch. Laphroaig comes to mind.

My favorite-but-can't-buy-in-America is Czech absinth. I've got a private stash of that. Nobody's allowed to touch it except me. Fortunately my wife doesn't like it.

I'm so glad all you folks don't like gin.... it's that much more for me! Muhahahahah!!!

Youse don't know what you're missing Oooooo... a 12oz watter tumbler, add ice, three fingers of Beefeater (anything else ISN'T gin), add a splash of Rose's lime juice, & fill 'er up with Schweppes (the ONLY) tonic water.

Viola!!! The perfect Gin & Tonic. Nothing better on a hot steamy summer afternoon.

My college roommate grew up on a farm and he used to make what is called "gin buckets". A couple of liters of gin, 12 or so limes sliced up and some ginger ale. Pour that into a big jug and add ice. Very very tasty on a hot sunny afternoon.

Don't like Bombay?

That's the best gin IMO. Beefeater's ok if I can't find Bombay though.

Whatever! Soju is great--especially with formaldehyde in it....

You should try Plymouth gin. It's the real deal. The Brits have been making it the same way since the 1700s.

My least favourite liquor is brandy. There was this unfortunate incident that involved accidentally drinking way too much.......

Scotch. I can drink anything but Scotch. I physically cannot drink scotch. I had a whiskey aversion for five years, because of a bender when I was 15, but I've fallen back in love with it. But my whiskey aversion was nothing compared to my problem with scotch. I can drink scotch, it doesnt gross me out, but I can only drink a half of a drink before Im done.

I can drink, but dont like at all, sweet beer. I HATE sweet german beers. And I'm a beer lover.

To people that hate rum, to tequlia, Jose and bicardi do not count as rum and tequila. I hate Jose but I love a good bottle of Hornito Respdo. Its not tequila if it dont say 100% pure aguava. Rum is the same way. Bicardi is the same as Jose. Bicardi is trash, if you hate rum, you probably were introduced to it with a bottle of Bicardi or Capt Morgans. Buy a nice bottle of Myers or Black Seal, or another dark rum. Worlds of difference.

SKOL.
I hate cheap vodka so much.
The most disgusting thing I ever drank (or tried to) was this ultra-cheap whiskey called Fighting Cock or something, presumably a Wild Turkey ripoff. I can usually handle pretty bad tastes without a problem, but this stuff... I could barely handle a sip of it. Tried to do a boilermaker with it and it was a waste of a beer.

I'll drink straight rum, one of my faves. Not all of it though, I go for Myers dark or something vanilla or coconut flavored. Captain Morgan disgusts me.

Sparkling wine:

" Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is Perth Pink. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is 'beware'. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

Another good fighting wine is Melbourne Old-and-Yellow, which is particularly heavy and should be used only for hand-to-hand combat.

Quite the reverse is true of Château Chunder, which is an appellation contrôlée, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation; a fine wine which really opens up the sluices at both ends.
