based on this from Jim: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A129296 I thought it might be interesting to see what everyones favorite drinks are. Mine is called Yukkas:

1/5th of Vodka
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
6 limes
8 lemons

mix contents in large glass jar w/ lid. add ice.
wrap jar in damp dish towel and shake.
when dish towel freezes to jar serve.

optional: place fresh strawberries in blender and puree add puree to jar and shake.

Make sure you can spend the night wherever you drink this because you won't be able to find the door later.

Just so's ya know, the Summertime PGGB isn't actually my "signature" drink.  Mine is the Cuban Missile Crisis:

1 oz. light rum
1 oz dark rum
1/4 oz. light creme de cacao
pineapple juice
1/2 oz grenadine
Serve in a Collins glass

There's a long story about this drink that nobody cares about except me.

Ok I'm very boring and not much of a drinker.
My signature drink is........................... Diet Mt Dew ;D
Same here farmwife.... mine is Dr. Pepper ;) I do love a Mimosa on New Year's Day though.

I drank some in the past but 2 drinks was all I could handle. One of two things would happen:

I would turn into a b**** OR I would be crying over anything and everything

2 drinks and I ALWAYS had a hangover. My hubby always said I was a cheap drunk. ;)

I'm a pansy when it comes to alcohol, so I guess if I had a drink that would be most describe me it would be champagne or Gerwerstraminer which is a sweet wine, for those who don't know.

Not much of a drinker, prefer my Dr Pepper, Sweet Tea and of course my Coffee!

Occasionally my sil, who is a lover of wines, brings a bottle when they visit and I enjoy a class or 2 with him.
I do like Margaritas and Irish Coffee, but they are far and few between.

My signature drink is one that Jim introduced me to and originally taught me to make. Through years of taste testing and experimentation, I have perfected the recipe to my tastes.

Chocolate Martini

2 shots of Players Caramel or Pinnacle Chocolate Vodka
1 shot Godiva Dark Chocolate
1 shot Bailey's Irish Cream (usually with hint of Caramel, but for the Christmas season I also do hint of chocolate mint)

Add ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass rimmed with Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and cocoa.

Now that one sounds like one I would like. I had a Chocolate Mint Martini at a company Christmas party a few years ago and it was delish!

I like Electric Lemonades but TBH I prefer I good imported Hefeweizen beer.
For virgin drinks I prefer sweet tea with lots of lemons or Sonic's cherry limeade.

I suppose my true "signature" drink is actually just a boring old Bacardi & Pepsi.

But someday I'll tell the entire dull Cuban Missile Crisis story.... ;)

Years ago while at a fireman's convention in Texas. It was a very hot day and we stopped for drink at the hotel bar  They  ask me if I wanted a  Long Island Ice Tea  I said does it have sugar? the bartender laugh and said no  So I said ok  and drank it strait down (remember it was very hot day.)

I have no memory after that till the next day.

If it was Texas, you probably got a Texas Tea, not a LIT.  A LIT has rum, vodka, gin and triple sec.  In a Texas Tea, the triple sec is replaced with tequila.

Non-alcohol: I prefer coffee - 2/3 Columbian/1/3 French Roast beans in the grinder or hot tea - Lapsang Souchong.
Alcohol:  A good cask brewed Ale or close substitute; A decent Pinot Noir; or a wee bit of the Lagavulin, neat with a hint of water.

As to a signature drink, I'll go with the Lagavulin; I'm not a big fan of exotic mixed drinks or non-exotic mixed drinks for that matter.
