What's Your Favorite Alcoholic Drink?

I'm a bartender. I LOVE making drinks and learning new ones, which I don't get to do often at my bar. So what's your drink of choice? Beer, cocktails, neat shots--pick your poison!

    • That's a shame. What vodka do you prefer?

    • I meant a shame designer vodka is like water and that you've got to go elsewhere for a better taste. But that's quite interesting!

    • i was happy with smirnoff etc unlil i tried the real thing. i just never knew the difference because i never knew what real водка should be. uk still makes the best gin though ;)

  • I like gin.

    I like to have a Gin Gibson every once in a while. How would you prepare it?

    I love gin & tonics but I make those at home. The tonic from bar wands is always flat and the drink is therefore disappointing.

    A properly made margarita is always a delight.

    What’s your favorite drink to mix?

    • I like mixing drinks in general. Just the act of mixing up these beautiful looking concoctions is reality fun to me. But I think I like making this drink called a Sandbagger. Its Captain Morgan, amaretto, and cranberry, lime and orange juices with a Myers float. As for the Gibson, I'd prepare it as I would a martini; let the glass chill while I stir (or shake, depending on the customer) a half shot of vermouth with gin, then strain into the chilled glass and garnish. How do you like it?

    • I'd have to say the most annoying things are 1) when they refuse to show their ID and find creative ways to excuse it and 2) when they try to get a cup to pass off their alcohol to someone else. A typical conversation will go like this:
      Customer: can I have an empty cup?
      Me: no.
      C: can I have a cup of ice?
      Me: no.
      C: how about a cup of water?
      Me: no. We have water fountains and vending machines right there.
      C: *walks off peeved and usually has outside alcohol in their bag*

    • OK. Just seeing if anything I do makes me an annoying customer. Guess I’m good! Thanks for your responses.

    • My work has a special margarita called the Kingpin. Its made of this tequila called Volcan, and is topped with a float of Grand Marnier. Volcan is distilled by Hennessey, and its surprisingly smooth. A lot of people even say they don't even need lime or salt, its so smooth. It kinda tastes like a smoother Patron

  • I really like beer, scotch, and cocktails. Since scotch is expensive at restaurants and bars, I mainly stick to beer and cocktails when out. My favorite beers are on the lighter side like pilsners or wheats (not light or cheap beers though). My favorite cocktails usually have rum or curaçao.

  • At a bar I would only order a cocktail, most certainly a Mojito.

    I do drink a nice glass of wine occasionally, but thats more a dinner-thing, not at a bar.

    • I've never tried Kraken. I always want to since my drink of choice is rum in general but I don't want to buy a bottle and end up it liking it. How would you describe the taste?

    • Kinda black liquorice like, it has a smooth burn. I only drink mine chilled from the freezer.

    • So almost like Fernet?

  • A sweet tasting pina colada with all the fruit on top of it with an umbrella while I'm sitting in a whirlpool in a world class Resort Hotel

  • My go-to is rye, neat. That being said, I drink a wide variety and will invent cocktails:

    The Toulouse-Latrec
    2 ounces American-style dry gin (e. g., Hendrick's)
    0.5 oz dry vermouth
    0.5 oz St. Germaine (elderflower liqueur)
    2 dashes aromatic bitters (e. g., Angostura).
    Stir on ice, strain into chilled cocktail glass that has been rimmed with lemon peel. Garnish with lemon peel.

    Manhattan Seco y Fresco
    2 oz tequila blanco (white/silver)
    1 oz dry vermouth
    1 dash aromatic bitters
    2 dashes orange bitters
    Stir on ice, strain into chilled cocktail glass that has been rimmed with mint leaf. No garnish.

    American Revolution
    1.5 oz bourbon
    1.5 oz London-style gin
    2 dashes aromatic bitters
    orange peel
    Muddle orange peel in gin. Add remaining ingredients and stir on ice. Strain into Old-fashioned (rocks) glass, on ice. Garnish with sour cherries or whiskey-soaked cherries.
