lately i've been on a cocktail kick (maybe because i turned 21) and i'm loving complicated mixed drinks. does anyone else like mixology? or have favorite drinks? especially summer drinks because it's starting to get warmer! i'd love to hear anyone's thoughts. or any thoughts about wine!


i know there is a drink thread in here but almost none of those people still post here and it's time for a fresh start!

i'm not fancy enough for anything super complicated, but i love me a good bloody mary. there's a restaurant/bar in my neighborhood that does a bloody mary bar where they hand you a glass with a shot in it and you can go to town with different Tabascos and spices.

i like caipirinhas a lot but i always find that if i order them when i'm out bartenders don't muddle them enough for my liking. i like a lot of fresh lime flavor. nice and easy for home though which i love!

and bloody marys are one of the few drinks i kind of hate. i don't really like tomato based foods even so drinking it is crazy to me! my friends at school are obsessed with finding the perfect one and i always ruin their fun. i do love love love blue cheese stuffed olives though so i'll steal those anytime i can.

I'm 16 and think alcohol taste really nasty. But I'm a huge fan of Root Beer.

You're not alone. I'm 20 and I can't drink alcohol unless the taste is somewhat masked. To date, I've only been able to stand piña coladas, rum runners, peach schnapps, and in a pinch, screwdrivers that are heavy on the orange juice, light on the vodka. I guess if I ever want to get drunk it's going to be on very, very girly drinks.

try drinks with more liqueur in them. i think drinks like white russians and sex on the beaches are delicious, and it's harder to taste the alcohol when there's more stuff in it that doesn't burn your throat.

also alcohols taste really really different so you might have to try a few to find one you like a lot (i don't really love vodka, for example but i think gin is delicious).but yeah, some drinks with a lot of liqueurs in them just taste like candy. and that isn't something you really find out if you're drinking what your friends are making in red cups.

Oh, alcopops. They were quite an issue over here a few years ago, when our sweet dew drops of youth were boozing themselves straightly into the nearest-by hospital, as they weren't aware of the fact, that the lemonade they were drinking contained alcohol and more fusel, than they were ready to cope with...

that's a little different because it's only like 5% alcohol. luckily. it's really, really easy to overdrink something like a black opal or long island iced tea and not even know it's almost all alcohol. for me making drinks is a whole new culinary thing. it's about flavors and textures even and appearances, i'm almost never drinking to get drunk.

5 % in premixes (!) is plenty enough to knock out fourteen-year-olds (which I am talking about - drinking age in Germany is 18, drinking habits in Germany are strange, controls awfully lax) in the first place and getting them used to it, even more, as they never stick to one drink for the whole evening and often they only drink, because their friends do. The taste of alcopops makes it a lot easier to forget, that the drinks are alcoholic at all. If I would intend to turn someone into an alcoholic I'd serve him or her sparkling premixes and sweet drinks for starters.

I remember how keen I was as a child to get some Bailey's or advocaat, but lemonade was my absolute favourite drink. Thinking of lemonade plus alcohol plus minors gives me the creeps.

Sorry for OT-ing, Lilly...

There was a guy around here who ordered Mike's for his, like, 5-year-old kid at Shea Stadium. Genius.
