    My wife likes vodka with crystal light or any of the other little drink mixers. She found the tang squeeze mixer to be good with vodka, also add the lime.

    I think our wives need to get together. MrsC likes vodka and soda with a squirt from one of those MiO flavors.

    I'm mostly a beer & bourbon person and not much on fruity drinks but on a trip to Jamaica I was introduced to a really good fruity drink. It is called a Jamaican Delight and contains Appelton Rum, Apricot Schnapps, Pineapple & Orange juices.

    All about the setting. If I’m home or at a nice ish restaurant, old fashioned or Manhattan is my mixed drink of choice.

    If I’m chowing nachos and slamming fajitas, bring me all of the margaritas.

    My approach to having a cocktail is kind of a "spice of life" type approach. On the occasions that I am in the mood for a cocktail, I'll usually only have one in a single sitting simply because, with a few exceptions, having more than one cocktail will hang me over in no-time flat.

    Bourbon Manhattan (light on the sweet vermouth, and two cherries)
    Gin and Tonic (extra wedge of lime, and a splash of St. Germain if it's available)
    Vodka Tonic (extra wedge of lime)
    Moscow Mule
    Negroni

    Old Fashioned, I have (one) almost every night

    Jameson Whiskey (1 jigger)
    Angostura Bitters
    One sugar cube
    One maraschino cherry
    Ginger Ale
    A few ice cubes

    I don't use the orange slice/peel and prefer ginger ale

    I don’t like a lot, if not most hard liquors. So my cocktail list is generally limited to stuff with Vodka or Bourbon.

    I usually drink Bourbon with a splash of ginger ale and ice, which is my go to drink outside of beer. Otherwise, I have the occasional Vodka and Tonic. I also do Moscow Mules, with a splash of pineapple juice.

    Sometimes, I get in the mood for after dinner drinks, in which case I get out the Bailey’s. I’ll drink that with coffee and some whipped cream.

    I haven't had Sambuca since my college days, when things would start getting wild, and we'd do flaming shots of Sambuca.
