Not sure if these two have been noted already. Affligem dobbel boch and Sami klaus. The affligem is simply the finest tasting beer ive ever had. Pop the cork, let it set for a moment, then pour it into a widemouth glass. He who finishes off the bottle is in for a treat. A beer for sipping not for guzzling. The Sami Klaus is a different story. I try to limit myself to two as it is expensive and potent. Make sure you have an inexpensive back-up to finish off your nite. You wouldn't want to waste this beer once the goggles are applied.
Cheers
Billy

HIJACK!!!

was wondering about good hard liquor drinks people like

i currently like, although my expierence is somewhat limited, jolly ranchers and long island ice tea. For those that dont know, jolly rancher is ussually made with apple or watermelon schnapps(i prefer watermelon), and vodka. if making a lot, a lime drink mixer(or whatever drink mixer) is used. The drink is served chilled or over ice

Include recipes!!

Hey Billy - tell me more about the Affigem. Is that the name of the brewery or the beer? What is the country of origin?

Good one, Dan. I prefer to buy American, so my fav mixed drink is Maker's Mark and ice.

Cheers, everyone!

Okay, sorry, I found it - Traditional Abbey ales of Flanders. Sounds great! I'll look for them.

Tom, I'm disappointed in you. I thought for sure you would prefer your whiskey straight. I find all liquor better warm (except crap like peppermint schnapps and maybe vodka - but who drinks that straight?). Not "warmed", but room temperature. Or in the case of cognac, warmed by the palm of my hand.
With ice in the glass I feel rushed to drink up before it melts. It also freezes up the taste buds.

Hawkson:
Tequila Sunrise, Whiskey Sour, rum & coke, nothing fancy.
But, depending on where you live, you might want to take advantage of the local fruit to make margaritas and daquiris. In my area strawberries are abundant. The advantage to having them locally grown is that you can get them when they've been picked ripe rather than green (not the ones from grocery stores, they've been picked green for longer shelf life). Strawberry margaritas are best with super-ripe, almost rotten strawberries (frozen-thawed are better than supermarket-fresh), good 100% agave tequila, FINE triple sec (but not too much, don't want them syrupy), sweet & sour, lots of powdered sugar, and FRESH lime. Blend using crushed ice. Serve in appropriate glasses and watch the ladies get plastered.

Mark - you're right, of course. I was just trying to say something witty regarding the "mixed drink" query. It IS a waste of good whiskey to have it touch anything except a clean glass before it hits your lips. That being said, there is room in my life for all sorts of experiences, and I sometimes stoop to ice or even (gasp!) a whiskey sour.

We've been drinking Margaritas on the rocks lately (although I wish I could afford REALLY good Tequila....). The magic formula seems to be 4 Tequila, 3 Triple Sec and 2 fresh lime juice. Tequila gives me a very different feeling than alcohol.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks, Peter. I think it's a sign when Craig is posting the URL for the beer thread within other threads.

I'm still infatuated with beers from Quebec's Unibroue. Recent favorites include Trois Pistoles and Terrible. Great, rich, clean, fresh beers.

I also had a chance to drink Widmer's Winternacht, which struck me as vastly superior to prior years' offerings.

Finally, everybody should have a bottle of Lindeman's Framboise Lambic on hand for the holidays. We much prefer it to champagne. While it is quite sweet for a Lambic, my wife (and her mother) are crazy for that big, pink, fizzy raspberry richness.

Happy Holidays, friends.
