Belgian, Dutch amd Mexican! You do realise we brew beer in Canada!? :)

What are these fabled 'good' Canadian beers? They're certainly none of the ones I've tried.
Well, Big Rock Trad Ale, brewed in CC's hometown, comes to mind! :) (And I love the name!)

Sometimes after work, I'll sit down with a Jack & Coke or a beer/ale (Sierra Nevada or Sam Adams - I don't like the major U.S. beer brands like Miller or Bud - tastes like dishwater).  In the rare occasion I do go out to a bar, I'll order a Meyers rum and coke.  During the summer I'll imbibe in a gin (Tanqueray) and tonic and on a cold winter night I'll settle in with a good Manhattan (just a splash of vermouth, please).  A glass of wine is a staple for dinner on most nights.  After visiting Canada (Montreal) this summer I discovered an ale I really liked but never heard of before called Griffon Red (Rouge).  I believe it's made locally in Quebec and so I broght home a case.

Gin (Bombay Sapphire or Beefeater) and tonic, wine (red or white, normally local). But I don't drink very regularly (not daily anyway), though I will if I'm in the mood or it's the weekend/a special occasion.

I use to be a Crown man, but lately, I find myself lately gravitating towards Forty Creek Whisky (an Ontario rye).  It's heavenly.  Mix in some 7-up, and you've got yourself a "47"

I have three bottles of 21 year old Glenfiddich in my cabinet.... blech.

Every year some good friends of mine come over and bring me a bottle. I open it, serve it, choke it down and ooh and ah over it enough so much that I get another bottle the following year.

Then, I have to hide the previous year's bottle so they don't think that I didn't appreciate it.

  :-[

I might have liked scotch had my big brother and his buddy not gotten plastered once in high school and spewed enough of it so that I was turned off of it forever.

... and I didn't even have any.

I like those really nice aged prohibitively expensive( Anejo?) tequilas that come in those little bottles,neat

I like Bombay ( yeah, that's right ) and coke with lime, bloody marys,gin gimlets ( or gomlets if you've had enough of them), sloe gin fizz,or whiskey sours for a mixed drink

for a desertish drink, mudslides

beer for beer

Spanish tintos for wine

Licor 43 on ice for gettin' lickered up

oh, and Spanish cider - refreshing and you can give a little juice glass of it to kids on special holidays notthatIwoulddosomethinglikethat like Christmas or New Years

there's also the cutest little shot that is named for a red haired promiscuous woman - man, those are good.

now- all this being said, I rarely drink.

It's not that I don't enjoy it, but I'm not going to drink alone and I don't run off to Paris as much as I used to.

:)

jovan, I would (really, I would!) but I think it's still illegal in GA to ship anything with even the teeniest bit of alcohol in it.

I wonder if I can water the plants with it?

instant tinctures!
