    Not a Poll this one, just thought it'd be a bit of fun to show us your fave drink, whether its a from a tinnie or is a mixer. Would be good to let us know how potent it is as well ! :) You need to post piccies of the contents so's we can all make sure we get the same stuff to try out.

    My fave is...errrr...well, I dont think it has name, so here it is.

    Start off with a dash of Angostura Bitters.

    Next you need to make an important decision...do I make a single or double ? (do I feel lucky Punk ?). Me...I make a double for myself each time as it saves time going back for refills...teehee !. I can have four of these in an evening and suffer no headache, nausia etc the following morning allthough my missus says I'm talking funny at the end of the evening :)

    Then its Grand Marnier
    Jack Daniels
    Sweet Vermouth
    Dry Vermouth

    Then sit back and veg !. Generally, after the third one, my tongue has gone has lost all feeling but by that time I couildn't really care less !

    Over to you guys...what 'floats your boat ' ?

    Mine is much simpler. Find a glass, put in handfull of ice, pour in Bourbon of choice (lately it's Wild Turkey Rare Breed), go out on deck sip until glass is empty, start over.

    Sometimes I'll change it up and make an Old Fashioned.

    Start with one sugar cube, a couple dashes of Angostura Bitters, a little club soda, mash it up and swirl it around to coat the glass. Add some ice and a jigger of Bourbon, and maybe throw in a Marachino cherry and an orange twist. Once again, repeat as needed.

    Sounds interesting Gary, I'll have to try it. By the way, you're feeling so good in that pic that your shirt (and the clock) are reading backwards!
    :lol:

    Here's mine:

    Gin Martini
    Old school, not the colored ones they have on the menu at a restaurant.
    I make 'em big so do not try this at home

    3 small olives
    Dribble of the juice from the olive jar
    A touch of dry vermouth
    3 oz of Beefeater London Dry Gin

    Must be Beefeater. There is no substitute.
    Either over ice or mix it in a shaker with the ice and pour into martini glass, depending on how I feel at the time, but usually over ice.

    One has me feeling good. Two of them has me feeling really, really really good. I had three once, but did not attempt that again!

    Nah, much easier than all that bother.
    First, find madly attractive blonde.
    Second, tell her to get me a drink.
    Third, who cares what the drink is (to an extent).
    Third, tell her to get me another - later !!!

    Reckon you guys have had some of my drink already !...

    To get the shot I was stood in front of the mirror over the cooker, hence the backwards writing on the shirt. Now as for the clock...is it really reversed ?. the numbers are going the right way just facing the wrong way !. Actually, its a 'Backwards clock' that runs anti-clockwise and is great fun once you get used to reading it the wrong way :). The first shot was from last night, the next is from this morning....

    Pineapple, orange, or pineapple lime squash + water at about 10:1. Works a treat.

    I totally agree, except I prefer either "Booker Noe" or "Makers 46" bourbons.

    other than the mainstay of a good spiced rum...capt morgan, one barrel, old master, etc and coke this strawberry smoothie kicks @$$!!!

    found this in Aruba while we were waiting for our room be available. been hooked ever since.

    its called a Paradise special

    you actually need this stuff called ponche crema its like a very thick eggnog. i usually end up making it myself...but eggnog ( alcoholic version ) will work..but get the thick kind.

    you need a blender. in it put one scoop of ice plus

    1 shot of baileys
    1 shot of rum ( dark or white )
    a splash of the eggnog (ponche crema )
    a splash of pina colata mix ( liquid )

    get it blending

    add crushed frozen strawberries ( the kind with a little sugary syrup you put over shortcake or ice cream )

    should turn into a pink smootie consistancy.

    coat the bottom of the glass ( use plastic..i will tell you why in a minute ) with a swirl of the eggnog then pour the smoothie in....add 1 dab of egg nog on top for color. drink through a straw.

    If you wish...once you pour it into the plastic cup...put it in the freezer to make it like italian ice.

    enjoy

    Here's a drink my dad taught me. It's called a Black and Tan. Very simply to make.
    First. Take a glass (easy right?) :)
    Then you fill it up halfway with bass ale. After that, get a large spoon out and a pint of Guinness.
    Place the spoon over the glass. Slowly let the Guinness fill the spoon up and spill into the glass. This will let the darker stout rest above the lighter stout.
    Voila, a Black and Tan. (Oh, if the Guinness is from a can, be careful. It might spill outside the glass. Found that out the hard way).
