I'm with Yuri, I'll pretty much drink anything.

Scotch, bourbon, not a huge fan of tequila (too many bad college experiences I suppose)

And I enjoy a vodka martini from time to time. While it's not a true "martini", throw some good chilled vodka and olives in a glass and I'm a happy man.

Wine - usually red, but in the summer I'll drink white. But none of that super sickening-sweet Riesling that SWMBO likes ... ugh.

I'm a fan of red zins if I'm drinking wine.

A bottle of gin with a half dozen olives jammed down the neck of it. Swig as needed.

There's nary an alcoholic beverage I'll run from...

I'm a big ol' wine geek. I'm especially a freak for Cab Franc and Chenin Blanc from the Loire, and Riesling/Pinot Blanc/Gewurtztraminer from Alsace, and certain Burgundy producers too.

As for booze...

Bourbon first. Evan Williams (my namesake) Reserve...Woodford Reserve...Knob Creek...Maker's Mark. Single Malt Scotch second---the peatier the better. Dalwhinnie is one of my favorites. It goes even better with yard bocce (AKA Scocce Ball). I love a good Vespers Martini, too: 1 part vodka, 5 parts gin (Citadelle!), 1/2 part lillet blanc aperitif, mist with Noelly Prat and add a twist of lime. Holy hell, that's good stuff. And then I recently find out that it's Bond's drink? Nice. As for tequila, I really only drink one straight, and that's Patron. The rest I use in "real" margaritas---made with fresh-squeezed lime juice. For rum, I like lime daiquiri's, the real kind, lime, club soda, rum. I also make a mean mojito---it's a variation on Hemingway's original, in that it has bitters added.

I'll drink about anything, as long as it's not too sweet. A simple gin martini or gin and tonic are among my favorites when the weather is warm (or not). Jack Daniels and I go waaaay back and have never been cross with each other. I'm gathering a good appreciation for dark rum. Bourbons are good, but they usually make me think of Jack, so I go back that direction.

Tequila had a falling out back in high school, but we made up a long time ago and have enjoyed each other's company quite a bit. A good Mescal finds its way to me now and then, as well.

Red wine has a special place in my heart, too.

Beer is good for anything from hot dogs to heartache.

I drank mixed drinks in the '70s (lots of rum&coke and Wallbangers), wines in the '80s, but switched to beer when the craft movement got started. In the last year, I've had one bottle of port, a pint or two of mead and maybe ten glasses of wine. Hard ciders occasionally. Bought some brandy the previous year. I can't remember the last time I had a mixed drink.

I don't prefer tequila, but a really good one on the rocks with a twist of lime has been known to grace the bar in front of me.

I make a mean margarita as well - Hornitos Sauza with fresh lime and Gran Marnier. For a novelty variation in color, substitute Tarantula tequila and Curacao. When making frozen margaritas, I use similar ingredients, a can of frozen lime-ade, and a splash of Coor's Light. Don't ask me why, but the Coor's Light just seems to make it smoother. It's the best use for BMC I've found.
