Default What's your favorite cocktail?

Man I love a good cocktail. That is one thing that I will pay alot and tip well for when we go out. I've finally perfected my old fashioned recipe...having a Bulleit Old Fashioned now. My favorite cocktails:

1a. Old Fashioned
1b. Rye Old Fashioned
2. Sazerac
3. Manhattan
4. Dark n Stormy

That's pretty much where I stay. I like a good vodka tonic or vodka club soda, a mojito, and on rare occasion a Cuba libre (only a tiny splash of coke).

I like the idea of a martini but I've never dabbled much.

Mixed drinks in general make my tum tum hurt. I like the spirit to be the star of the show.

So what are yalls favorites? Might find something new.

I never liked anything but vodka/grapefruit juice really when it came to mixed drinks.

Had some of that home brew I made on NYE earlier tonight. It turned out great but get this...the whole time it was fermenting I thought the bitch was contaminated. It had this strange almost pellicle looking thing floating in it, perfectly round. I looked it up and convinced myself that, well, I had made a sour.

turns out it was the freaking cap to the airlock. Beers fine. I'm a moron

Gotta say I like 'ritas for about two sips then I'm done. Might have to try this though. That looks nice.

No shame in that. Mostly I just hate sweet drinks. I always hated whiskey sours too until I had a proper one with an egg white.

I've never heard tale of such a thing. I've got some SoCo in the cabinet right now. We have only recently gotten reacquainted after a really bad night a bunch of nights in college.

Tennessee Honey still makes me gag to this day.
