Blended Scotch or lots of coffee (too early for Scotch right now so coffee) with an occasional nibble on a square of white chocolate. OK a strip of chocolate. OK OK a whole bar.

Nothing like guilt to get you out walking the dog to burn those extra calories the next day...

I'm a sucker for boxed wine.  No Franzia, though.  That's for the plebs.  We drink Bota Box in the high castle.

AH! You wound me to the quick sir! Then again, at 80% humidity and teasing the underside of 90 degrees... I think God might grant me leniency at the least because I let my dogs inside. :P

Johnny Walker, preferably the Blue Label (aged 25 years) although I have lately, don't laugh (too much)  been enamered with a Costco 16 year old blended scotch. Either with just a splash of water, more like a drop; just enough to release those aromas pent up all those years like the fiction that drips from finger tips...anyway I think I read somewhere on this very forum some pretty good advice, in case you find yourself still working when it's "Miller Time."

Now you sound like the bad guy in the novel I just finished. Yesterday. Sent it to my editor.

Ice cold Diet Coke, Stewart's root beer or their cream soda  :)

For a stronger poison - cafe mocha, large   :D

I feel like this thread should come with a warning label... I rarely drink and before I survived the first page I had a glass of white wine and schloer in my hand.

That was out of necessity. My real poison is Monkey 47 Gin and Elderflower Fever Tree Tonic Water... but alcoholics cannot be choosers.

Change this...

[*img]hxxp://www.totalwine.com/media/sys_master/twmmedia/h45/hdc/8806115180574.png[/img]

... to this...

[*img width=300]hxxp://www.totalwine.com/media/sys_master/twmmedia/h45/hdc/8806115180574.png[/img]


The number - in this case 300 - can be any value.

Dirty martini with Chopin. On rare occasions we get a slightly warm spell of weather, and that calls for an icy G&T.
Only a couple of times a year do we break out the actual moonshine, procured from the back room of a small local liquor store, IF you know what to say and whom to say it to. One mason jar lasts a good long while around here.

Tea is my all day, every day drink (hot Twining's Australian Afternoon for breakfast and then Starbucks unsweetened black iced tea on repeat until about 8pm), but I am not opposed to a well timed gin and tonic or cider.

I am a total lightweight and have shamed my ancestors when I've ventured beyond the two drink limit. It's best if they are very, very weak drinks.

Martini with Sprite and a slice of lemon is hands down my favorite drink.

And when it comes to non-alcoholic beverages, tea wins. Especially Earl Grey.

Now that the Boone's Farm is gone and it's just a regular sunny afternoon around here, I'm all about the iced tea. And since I'm from Michigan, it's not sweetened. Sweet tea is just wrong.

Armed with nothing but coffee and a sense of humor.

I don't drink alcohol.

But I do smoke weed. And when I finish a novel I enjoy a strain of cannabis called UK Cheese, best thing out of the UK since the NHS (the National Health Service, currently under attack by the forces of evil).

So it's not really a poison, if you consider that it shrinks cancerous tumors.

But for the sake of practicing my socialization skills, let's pretend its a poison and it leads to other poisons like pizza and a good nights sleep.
I can't be held responsible. I'm insane I tell you, insane!

I don't drink alcohol and I drink way too many diet sodas, but these days my mornings start with some coffee ice cubes (just a strong shot of espresso, with a dash of chocolate, vanilla, and sugar, frozen into blocks) in a tall glass of milk. Perfect in the heat of a summer morning, and nearly as good on a sub-zero winter's night, but mostly because I'm weird.

This thread should be in contention for Best Thread Ever.

I like a spiced rum and coke with lime (I believe "Cuba Libre" is the cocktail equivalent?). Took me years to get into beer, primarily because Glasgow's (and Scotland's) most popular beer is Tennent's, which is... Not pleasant.

However, also from Glasgow is St. Mungo beer by WEST brewery, which is a great German-style beer that adheres to the German Purity Law - or "Reinheitsgebot" to give it its proper name.
