I remember a post like this came up some time ago. It's always fun to see what folks are imbibing in to shed the days issues.
Over the 30yrs that my career has/had spanned there have been a variety of elixers and concoctions that were ordered, tried and even enjoyed.
Depending on the restaurant that I worked at, the depth of the bar was always a determining factor. Then again way back when it was encouraged to drink at the bar with employee drink prices but now it appears most companies discourage it.
At the bar I did enjoy a LI Tea, Beer since it was free or .50 a glass, an "Oil Can" when it was available and the more than occasional shot of Rumplemintz. Actually there was this one place I worked in the western 'burbs of Chicago where the employee's drank so much of it, it was nicknamed "Lomdard Water":beer:
I never was one for cocktails at home because it was mostly a solo act and I never felt comfortable drinking alone. Yet an occasional beer or glass of wine was had and I always kept some Rumplemintz in the freezer and a couple other things around should I have some of the crew over.
Now-a-days it's a simple beer, maybe even a Trappist ale, glass of home mixed Deigo red, a margarita or Bloody Mary that I enjoy when the day is done.
