favorite dranks

and by dranks i mean alcoholic beverages, ( only on cheat days of course )

as a new drinker (ive only been 21 for 2 weeks now, and hadnt had a drop till i turned 21) and crossfiter i would like to know what my crossfiting brethren like to drink. i ask because im pretty much open to try anything, especially considering how well alcohol makes me sleep. 2 drinks= best nights sleep ive had in a LONG time.

at the moment im personally partial to:
Kahlula and Rootbeer, & Rum and Rootbeer. but i REALLY like rootbeer already so thats not that surprising.
Pyramid Hefeweizen, and Apricot Ale -just bought a sampler pack good stuff-
White Russians

things ive tried and not liked:
Wine. even "good wine" was blech to me.
Screw drivers, not only a girls drink but not that good either IMO

Re: favorite dranks

I like captain morgan spiced rum. That, or some kind of ale. Moosehead is the draft I usually order in bars.

I`m jealous that you can sleep after drinking. If I get a noticable buzz I sleep like crap that night.

Re: favorite dranks

I rarely drink, but when I do, I prefer:
  • Bloody Mary (esp. w/ migas)
  • excellent sipping tequila
  • red wine (esp. Chianti Classico Riserva)
  • Irish coffee (mostly in the winter)
I'll drink a beer every so often, but it's not often that I have one that resonates with me much.

Off topic and maybe offensive (not intentionally) please be careful using alcohol for sleep. I've seen that go bad a lot.

Re: favorite dranks

Shiner Blonde is my beer of preference.
Vodka lemonade is my choice otherwise.


There's no such thing as good sipping tequila. >.<

Though in the name of keeping things paleo as possible, the guy and I floated the Guadalupe and took a bottle of Jim Beam. That wasn't horrid.

Re: favorite dranks

As for my favorite drank.

I don't drink liquor. It seriously makes me sick anytime I have any kind of mixed drink or shot. Plus I think they all taste terrible. A jack and coke makes me cringe, I don't understand how people suck that stuff down.

I like beer. I love dark beers specifically. I have a 64 oz Irish Drinking Mug. On New Years Eve I filled it up no less than 3 times with Guinness. I was drunk, but woke up feeling fresh as a daisy the next day.

Now compare that to days where all I have is like 2 jack and cokes and I wake up groggy and sick the next day. Of course that's been a while because I recognized this around the time I turned 21 and said "No more liquor."

Re: favorite dranks

James, any mixed drink is a girl's or young man's drink....(James you are a young man so by all means...continue with any vodka, rum, concoction you'd like...)

Once you graduate, it's either straight rum, scotch, whiskey, wine or beer...I choose beer....

Any amber is tops...
