    I haven't drink alcohol for years now (6 years I think), with the exception of some sips of a home-made liquor a friend offered me to taste. Maybe when I get older I'll develop what I consider the natural appetite for things like a good wine, hahaha.

    It is a very topical or typical image to have a glass of wine, as an intimate and luxurious moment for me, having a glass of wine simply is like taking a purgative has to be eating.

    Lately, I only prefer strong drinks like whiskey or rum. I rarely drink them, but still. I don't like to mix.

    My taste is in wine is strictly Old World. If you want a tip on an obscure appellation, try Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato. However, if you're looking for bang for your buck, go with the Canary Islands. We're talking pre-phylloxera and volcanic soil.

    I'm also a big fan of ciders. The Normans do it best. Look for stuff that's naturally fermented and unfiltered.

    Aperitifs, I have to endorse Ricard. Exceptional product. The stories I could tell.

    Digestifs, I'm an amaro man. My favorite is Vecchio Amaro del Capo, made by Caffo. Runner up is Amaro Braulio, from the Valtellina. In third place, Amaro Lucano from Basillicata.

    For something made in the good ole USA, I suggest Black Fig Vodka. It drinks like a liqueur. https://blackinfusions.com/black-fig

    I've been known to drink a whole bottle of cabernet or merlot in one sitting. I like Leroux Polish style blackberry brandy and/or Apfelkorn in the winter..Both on the rocks, in a whiskey glass. I'll also dip into my bourbon collection and drink Buffalo Trace or Weller once in awhile. I haven't drank beer in some time but on a hot day I'll drink some ice cold Einstok beer from Iceland. It's nice and crisp.

    My paternal grandfather on the other hand loved to drink Scotch all day long in his office. He'd start off the day with vodka and orange juice and work his way into the Cutty Sark bottle. He was usually three sheets to the wind by dinner time. My maternal grandfather would sit and drink Pabst Blue Ribbon or Budweiser by the radio all day.. Both were WW2 veterans and thats how they coped. PSTD wasn't as accepted or treated like it is today. I doubt either of them went to the VA after the late 40's.

    I like beer and cider. But recently I tried coffee with cognac and I really liked that hot drink. This recipe came from France. This alcoholic cocktail creates a double load on the heart and blood vessels, so for hypertensive people, it's especially dangerous. Personally, I don't like it because I'm not a fan of hot alcoholic beverages. But many people like it so you can try to make this drink. You just need to make a cup of coffee and add 50ml of cognac, or as much as you want.

    I love drinking coffee without milk. Espresso or doppio are my favorite types of coffee.

    I'm addicted to flavored drinks. Like the powdered juice mix for water. Particularly, I like Crystal Light Fruit Punch. I do not drink anything with alcohol in it. Maybe on special occasions I will drink some Jungle Juice. Lol.

    ^^Are you aware how many chemicals and dyes are in that stuff, in addition to artificial sweetener.

    Very interesting. You must tell me where I can find the Avar community in New Jersey. I'd like to visit. :)

    Tap water for everyday hydration. I don't drink coffee or tea.

    Scrumpy cider with lemon on a sunny afternoon.

    Larios gin with Dubonnet for a nightcap.

    Champagne on special occasions.

    One of the more interesting lists I've seen here. :) I would have thought New Zealanders drink a lot of tea. Is gin and Dubonnet your special combination, or am I just ignorant? I've never heard of it.

    Not my special combination, I first heard of gin and Dubonnet as the favourite drink of Queen Elizabeth II and her mother. According to her staff, the Queen has a gin and Dubonnet (one part gin, two parts Dubonnet) mid morning, followed by a glass of white wine with lunch, then a dry martini and a glass of champagne at night. When this was revealed a few years ago there was disapproval from health experts who labelled her a heavy drinker. Her defenders noted that by spacing out her four daily drinks from morning to late at night she would not be drunk at any time (she would probably pass a breath test if driving). Apparently her doctors have recently advised her to cut out the martini.

    As for the Queen Mother, a friend said she was never drunk, but she was never quite sober. She lived to be 101, and her daughter is currently 96, so this level of alcohol consumption might not be all that damaging. Correlation is not causation, but moderate drinkers outlive teetotallers on average.

    New Zealanders do drink a lot of tea, and increasingly coffee, I'm just not typical.

    I normally don't drink gin, but next time I'm out to dinner I'll give it a try. :)

    The mid-morning thing rather surprises me, and if all the 4 drinks were of "hard" liquor, I don't know if that would be what I call moderate, but I do believe some alcohol a day is, on balance, probably a good thing. Certainly, in my family, and every family I knew as a child, the adults always had a glass of wine with lunch and dinner, and I doubt it did them any harm. (The wine was very low in alcohol, however.)

    As for the longevity thing, I believe there are some people who have so many of the right combination of genes that substances that fell other people don't bother them at all. My paternal grandfather drank a raw egg and grappa for breakfast, wine for lunch and dinner, and some more grappa afterwards, smoke every day of his life since he was a young teen, and lived to 87, which is pretty respectable. My mother did everything right and was dead at 62, so there you go. It's why I don't pay much attention to don't do this and don't do that.

    My problem with alcohol is that I think they put preservatives in the wine sold here, because I get headaches and an upset stomach from the wine I buy here, unlike the homemade wine at home, and "hard" liquor affects me too quickly, and I don't like the feeling, even when I really like the taste, as with things like a pina colada, or mojito, or daiquiri, all of which I like very much. So, I stick to one when I go out, and hope the bartender doesn't have a heavy hand. :)

    I've heard that organic wine has no artificial additives, and the grapes are grown without artificial pesticides or fungicides. I haven't tried it myself, but it might be worth considering. Not that I'm an advocate for increased consumption of alcohol.
