Thread: Wine drinker craving hard liquor

  1. #1

    Wine drinker craving hard liquor

    I've been a wine drinker all my life, but recently craving hard liquor.

    Vodka, Tequila, Whiskey, Cognac, Rum or other?

    Should I start with a mix drink or straight?

    I don't buy cheap drinks so don't recommend Smirnoff, Old Crow Bourbon, anything with a Southern name, etc.

    the light colored liquors mixed will be the easiest

    screwdriver vodka and orange juice

    margarheta-tequilla lime

    rum and coke

    next level would be gin and tonic

    then if you want to try the dark stuff you could go to bourbon and coke

    then maybe try straight tequilla or bourbon. bourbon is my only straight drink

    then you can be an alkie like the rest of us.

    when mixing, don't worry about the brands

    I like your recommendations. What about Long Island Ice Tea?

    too boozy for a beginner

    ultimately I see him as a bourbon drinker

    but baby steps first

    "Kraken" is a dark spiced rum that comes in really cool bottle. It's not that easy to find. It's 94 proof where most spiced rums are 70 or 80 proof. It's good with most normal rum mixers but if you mix it with ginger ale it tastes almost like black cherry. My wife was never a rum drinker but she's hooked. "Release the Kraken"! Mount Gay "Eclipse is a good one as well (If you happen to take a liking to rum which I obviously have).

    Dump harmless pot questions, and keep this front and center. The mods should be embarrassed. Even more embarrassing...they lobbied to do this.
