In Search of the Perfect Drink

I always keep a batch of vermouth-soaked olives in the fridge for my vodka martini. What’s your drink of choice?

    Boikermaker…shot of whiskey with a beer chaser.

  2. Jalina Jovkovich says:

    Uh, that’s supposed to be boilermaker!!!

  3. Heather says:

    ha! The Boikermaker had me intrigued!

  4. Stacy says:

    LOL. Bourbon – manhatten, mint julep, with diet ginger ale, just about anything with bourbon.

      The downtown library in Los Angeles offers a wonderful series, ALOUD, featuring writers in conversation. My friend and I go regularly. And beforehand, we sit at the bar at a nearby restaurant, eat tacos and drink Maker’s Mark Manhattans.

    At times like these, I think to myself: Self, WWFD? (i.e. What Would Frasier Drink). Breakout the sherry.

    Maker’s Mark…but I found we have a distillery in Fredericksburg!!$

  7. Wine. I’m breaking out a bottle of ice wine tonight to celebrate getting a fellowship position!

    Congratulations about the fellowship position. Great news!

    I’m with Stacey: Knob Creek bourbon with a splash of ginger ale. Mmmm, love that smoky flavor.

  10. Stacy says:

    I’m from Kentucky and am an ambassador for Maker’s Mark. It’s fabulous.

  11. Heather says:

    I’m from Kentucky also…I second what Stacy said about Maker’s!

  12. mary c. says:

    Maker’s is great but I love the smoke of the Knob…I’m a Yankee girl.

  13. Petra says:

    or a Negroni.

    I am loving seeing all these fellow bourbon drinkers! My drink is definitely the Manhattan. When I was a kid, my mom would give me the cherries out of hers.

    I’m a Maker’s Mark girl (I often drink Maker’s on the rocks with a cherry), but I also LOVE Elmer T. Lee. When I drink my local bar out of Maker’s, that’s what I switch to.

    The Long Island Iced Tea has been a favorite of mine for years. But I’ve recently discovered Wild Turkey American Honey Whiskey, which has been giving my standby a run for its money in the last couple of months.

    I probably should mention that I don’t drink a whole lot, but when I do, I do it wholeheartedly – life is too short for wimpy drinks.
