    Now, I've never been one for alcohol. The last time I consumed alcohol was several months ago when I ordered a strawberry flavored drink from the bar at Outback, and it didn't even taste like it had any alcohol in it.

    But even if I wanted to drink, I wouldn't really know how to go about making mixed drinks. What kinds of alcohol do you mix? What do you mix in to flavor it?

    I thought people could post their fave mixed drink concoctions. I'd start, but I honestly have no idea. :shrug:

    Well, the goal of the thread is to tell us what goes into a slippery nipple or screaming orgasm. How do you make these drinks?

    Generally speaking, I hate the taste of alcohol, so it would need to be something that's flavored so I can't taste it - I don't want to think I'm drinking a bottle of isopropyl alcohol.

    I've never drank chardonnay.

    Exactly what is the difference between champagne and wine? (it's a serious question, I don't know)

    I usually detest alcohol.

    Don't like beer. Don't like wine. Don't like champagne. Don't like most hard liquors.

    Not cause I dislike being drunk. But cause I hate the taste. I don't see the point in drinking something so bitter :shrug:

    Oddly enough, though, I LOVE Long Island Iced Tea.

    I'll take two appletinis, barkeep.

    Seriously though, Crown and coke is about the only mixed drink I'll have unless I'm on the beach.

    Bombay Sapphire Martini.

    Get a cocktail shaker and fill it up about half-way with crushed ice.

    Pour a 6:1 ratio of Bombay Sapphire gin and Dry Vermouth into the shaker.

    Shake the shaker vigorously for about 30 seconds.

    Strain the liquid (not the ice) into a martini glass.

    Spear a couple nice fat olives with a toothpick and chuck it into the glass.

    Drink.

    The mnemonic association is peppermint Schnapps reminds you of Christmas, and Christmas means Santa's elves, and, well...

    What's your brand?

    I assume you prefer single malt.

    Mix? You mean ruin perfectly good alcohol by adding fruit and sugar and other girlie things to it? Not really my style. 90% of my drinking is beer, wine, or scotch.

    Now I will make some less than pure concoctions, but they generally involve a mix of different alcohols. I like a dry martini, about 1 part vermouth, 20 parts gin. I poor a drop or two of vermouth in the glass, swish it around, then poor it out. What remains on the glass is it -- the rest is Bombay saphire. The other "mixed drink" I'll make now and then is a straight margarita. 7 parts tequila, 2 parts tripple sec, 1 part lime juice, poored over ice.

    3 shots of good bourbon with a large cup of Coke Icee make for a really comfortable buzz on a hot summer's day.

    Yeah, whatever. At least I drink enough real alcohol to claim drunkenness.

    The drink with everything in it is the one you can stand to drink.

    That's kind of like how Mr. Burns doesn't have any diseases because he has every disease.

    I can't drink anymore so I usually drink a virgin Pina Colada when I'm with people who are.

    I used to drink...whatever. I hated it and only drank to get drunk anyway so it didn't matter. It was usually private parties so whatever was shoved in my hand was good enough.

    Though one of the most insidious drinks ever is peppermint shnapps in hot chocolate. That shit don't hit until it is way too late and the getting sick is profound...or was for me anyway. :lol:

    I tried absinthe once...

    One shot...felt nothing. Took a second shot immediately...

    Got halfway down my gullet and came right back up. I didn't even SWALLOW it all the way....

    That's the only time I've ever thrown up from alcohol, though.

    I drink to celebrate life.

    You drink to dull the pain of your miserable existence and your hollow marriage.
