My staple is the grayhound. Though I sometimes go for a martini, Manhattan or a gimlet.
What do you like?
Beer definitely. Wine on occasions - good NZ Savignon Blanc, or Pinot Noir - love the French Bordeaux - have had the chance to try some really good ones in my travels :)
As far as spirits go - am normally a bourbon and coke drinker - but got the chance to visit Catalina a few years ago. Introduced to frozen margaritas by one of our clients. Had the best day - sitting in the sun - listening to a live jazz band, and proceeding to get horribly burnt, and very 'merry'.
Next day was painful - head, and sunburn - but totally worth it. Whenever I go back to the States now, I always end up having at least one margarita. Great memories!
Beer and Wine are my staples. As far as liquor goes, I like Irish Creme on the rocks (if I'm itching for sweet) or a nice single malt scotch. Cracked open a 12 year Glenfiddich last Christmas that was particularly enjoyable.
Yup. Dude got me into 'em. But they really are my favorite drink. They go down so smooth...
Rum & cokes mainly driven by environmental factors, where friends are spontaneously buying drinks for each other and passing them around throughout the evening. This is the drink of choice for yachty-type sailors, so I just go with it by default, as I prefer not to mix hards. Its not that bad.
