    Now that the tea-making poll has run awhile, I thought it might be interesting to see what people's favourite drinks are. Feel free to post and elaborate on your choice.

    I'm with you! I make my own wine so there's a lot to drink. You need one of those big fat straws that they use for slushies...about 4cm in diameter.

    The weekend is here...grab the corkscrew and let's go!

    Not only does the caffine drip do it for me, it also scares the Salesmen that visit me at work. One complained that he got the shakes and couldn&#39;t sleep ........ and never came back again

    Brandy is great in hot choc. So is anything like Baileys, Dooleys, all the other cream ones etc.

    However gin really doesn&#39;t work.

    alcohol with choc... well what can&#39;t you put with it would be quicker. think liquor choccies&#33;&#33;&#33;

    your own bounty bar with malibu
    whiskey might be a little harsh...
    but brandy would get my vote.


    and when can we all try the home made pea pod wine then guiderchachi? :lol:

    I had to vote tea because that&#39;s what I drink mostly
    PLUS
    A glass of red wine most evenings
    BUT
    If I&#39;m out "socialising" it&#39;s cider
    BUT
    If it&#39;s "extreme socialising" it&#39;s vodka with... :huh: ... something.

    Gin is VERY good in lemon tea (real lemon tea - not Liptons), and vodka&#39;s quite good in clear coffee (bedouin style)(the coffee - not the vodka, silly)

    i&#39;d not turn down any good champagne chance would be a fine thing&#33;

    Beer in the pub and whisky as a nightcap for me...&#33; Champagne, and indeed any fizzy alcoholic drink, is falling over juice for me since some big ops a few years ago, I&#39;m afraid&#33;

    Real ale for me! I'm also rather partial to single male Scotch and a nice glass of Merlot. Not at the same time, though!

    A thread back from the dead!

    Difficult to make a choice of only one because they're a mix of soft drinks and alcoholic ones. I voted for tea because that's my most frequent drink but for other 'social occasions' I usually drink wine


    or sometimes cider




    never beer/lager...




    Sometimes vodka with something...




    Grand Marnier is nice sometimes...




    What about creme de menthe frapp&#233;?



    Oh! and I like sloe gin....

    It has been known to influence my bidding on certain Ebay items though

    Like Mrs B, I have a difficult time choosing one item.

    Mostly Rioja, some malt whisky and very rarely real farm house cider (locally, I can only buy the commercial pasteurised filtered tasteless sweetened alcoholic apple juice).

    Can we have polls which allow multiple selections?

    I dunno. Some people are never satisfied. You'll want individual booths and pencils on strings next...

    If I'm just socialising, then it's a pint of London Pride of something similar. Occasionally I'll enjoy a pint of Strongbow or a glass of Moondarra Shiraz. At home, on a cold winter's night, a glass of Irish whiskey... Jameson's for just slurping or if I have company then I might just bring out the Tullamore Dew.

    I'm not so sure about the Strongbow or the Shiraz, but the rest is exactly, dare I say it, my cup of tea...! :cheers:

    Mornings - 2 large mugs of fresh brewed coffee

    At the pub on a Sunday Lunchtime, putting the world to rights - Spitfire/London Pride/Butty Bach/etc (i.e. Real Ale)

    Pub quiz league nights - same as above!

    Other times in the pub - same as above!!

    Thirst quenching - Stowford Press/Knights/Dunkertons (i.e. Real Cider, and living in Herefordshire I'm spoilt for choice )

    As an apereritif - Bombay Sapphire and tonic

    With a meal or just for glugging - Most red wines (although I do tend to get into trouble on a certain forum if I have too much h34r

    As a Nightcap - a good single malt

    (I couldn't find a tick box for that lot so I just went with beer )

    Love a cup of really strong tea, which I drink too many cups of each day.

    Mind you it was a job to choose between that and wine which I drink too many glasses of in the evening

    I drink tea through out the day, beer if I'm socializing, but there's nothing like a dram of 16yr old Lagavulin.

    Red wine - preferably a decent Rhone or Chateauneuf du Pape if I have a sudden surplus funds

    A decent pint of bitter works well too - Abbott, Gales HSB, London Pride or similar

    Must have missed this poll first time round, but have just voted. It's a difficult one 'cos what I fancy depends on the situation, sometimes it's tea or coffee, sometimes wine, sometimes bitter.

    In the end I plumped for beer or lager.

    Southern Comfort for me, with lots of ice and more Southern Comfort. None of this adding coke or lemonade stuff.

    I too missed this first time round...

    I'm a complete Tea-a-holic, and until very recently hadn't drunk for about 3 years. Before that I was often seen aorund camping events clutching a bottle of Vodka, and although I HAVE been a friend of the Vodka bottle lately again, I LOVE red wine now!!

    Still can't beat a good cuppa... solves every problem known to man!
