Road Hog:
I remain a beer guy. Liquor gets me into too much trouble.

This time around, I went for Bombay Dry Ginóa very traditional London dry gin.  It has a similar flavor profile to Beefeater 24, which I loved, and it's easy on the pocketbook.

I'm just not a London dry guy. I need more aromatic botanicals. All I get is juniper in that style. To each their own of course. I forget if we've talked about this. Have you tried an Old Tom gin?

achilles765:
I have gone through like phases over the years. For a while I drank gin martinis, then vodka cranberries, then it was scotch. For about the last eight years Iíve mostly just drank wine, or margaritas when I have a cocktail.

Now, however, Iím head bartender at work and so when creating new drink recipes, I have had to experiment and try different things.
I definitely like gin and tequila most. And also mezcal. But I like making cocktails with more than one ingredient, like gin and elderflower liqueur and hibiscus tea or tequila, elderflower, lemon and honey.
I never used to really like cognac but Iíve put together a few specials that are actually quite good.

Like my Remy Martin 1738 Old fashioned with honey syrup, grand marnier and a splash of luxardo cherry juice.
Or the seasonal cide car with apple cider and Cointreau
