Other than beer, if you consume alcohol, what is your favorite drink?
Wine and 'hard liquor' may be separated.

I enjoy a good Pinot Noir or Merlot.
If it's something stronger, I like single malt scotch, neat or with a smidgeon of ice.
You?

I like a good Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zindfandel, and once in a while Merlot (must have been influenced by Sideways). I occasionally will try a Malbec - Chile and Argentina produce some tasty ones.

It was so hot this past summer (up until yesterday) that even a Margarita would not refresh. Had to resort to Mojitos, maybe the ultimate refreshment. (The way I make them, by the end of the second one, you have no clue that it is hot out.)

Czech and Finnish beers are fine, good wines too. If it has to be spirits, then Czech Becherovka (sold as Carlsbad Becher in some countries).

Sorry you folks from States! Your beers are from - where sun never shines in ;-)

OK! Some Belgian beers are good, too.
And that Badass label is fabulous.

Grew up and aged on Manhattens - decided I wanted to live a little longer and switched to Cab and Merlot - I have had a bottle of Macallan 25 yr. old in the basement - saving it for a rainy day - actually it flooded here most of Sept. - not sure what I am waiting for.....

I can't imagine myself tasting Japanese beer either, even if it was brewed by Holy Priestesses of Kobe. I bet all one gets from those tiny cans is opening sound.

A pint of Mackensons and two packets of Walkers Crisps.

Baileys

Very old port and a slice of rich fruitcake.

I'm not really a wine drinker. I'll occasionally have a glass of something when I'm out to dinner, but I rely on the recommendations of the sommelier, since I know very little about wine.

If I'm drinking beer, I prefer IPAs over lagers. My current favorites are Dogfishhead's 60 Minute IPA and Magic Hat's HI.P.A. I also like lambics, particularly Lindemans' flavored lambics (framboise and kriek are my favorites -- raspberry and black cherry).

Where liquor is concerned, I'm glad to see I'm not the only fan of JC! I also like schnapps (peppermint in the winter, peach in the summer), and Goldschlager (which is, I suppose, technically cinnamon schnapps). I also like rum, but only in mixed drinks. And since most of my friends can't keep up with me when it comes to shots, mixed drinks are what I find myself drinking. Favorites are sex on the beach, mojitos, cape codders, and Captain & Coke.

Wow... I sound like a lush. haha

I almost forgot. There is actually nothing like good Pastis served in a quiet southern French smalltown cafe. You have been playing pétanque with couple of elderly locals, won them by Fanny (13-0), so you're supposed to buy refreshment to all. So, "quatre pastista, s'il vous plaît".

4 cl Ricard, 2,5 cl fresh water and two pices of ice, wait a couple of seconds and enjoy.

Surprisingly there is a good Cabernet Franc that, although found in the Ohio wine section in wine shops, it is actually from Pelee Island Ontario, which is on the Canadian portion of Lake Erie, not far from the international border. Drool
