Campari & Soda (not CompariSoda already in the bottle, although that will do in a pinch)

A G&T really hits the spot after service.

Not a huge drinker any more....funny how most of my cook friends of a certain age just don't drink that much any more either. One of those, been there done that too much, don't need to do that any more scenerios.
Some of the better more creative ones are now into tea.

A Fired Up Monk - equal parts sweet & Sour, fireball whiskey, Frangelico, tequila, made like a frozen margarita.

It's my own concoction and it's 

        really

                     good 

and bartenders need to start making it, cause ordering it gets expensive.

Recently, I've been drinking a lot of Boulevardiers, a twist on the Negroni, replacing the gin with rye whiskey.  It's 1 part Campari, 1 part sweet vermouth and 1.25 parts of rye.  Not something that I make I night of drinking, but it's a great pre dinner cocktail or way to start off the evening.

This thread has been running for ages!  Had I noticed it back it when it was started I'd have likely answered a nice Cabernet Savignon, depending on the season, weather, etc.  In hot weather maybe a Sav Blanc or a Chardonney.  Hell, maybe even a Beam & Coke.  But I quit drinking a few years back so now it's tea or flavored soda water.  I've got a Soda Stream that I sometimes use to 'roll my own' but usually I buy different waters.

Last night it was JD and Coke. A pleasant change from the typical Martini/Manhattan options.

Campari and soda with added Angostura bitters

Every smoker quits smoking sooner or later!

Only the smart ones are doing it while they are still alive.

I don't work much (HA! outside of my home anyways) and my meds preclude regular ingestion of ETOH but a nice G&T under an open sided tent on the beach cannot be beat.

Late in the evening with the gulf breezes blowing...maybe a SS bowl of spicy boiled shrimp on ice in the cooler....ahhhh Heaven.

 

When I DID work?

Started with a longneck and a few shooters and once I was nice and relaxed moved on to a couple of fingers of a good scotch or brandy poured into a nice heavy glass (86 the rox ;-)

What was in the shooter glass you ask?

Kamikaze if on my own dime....sky is the limit if you are buying lol.

Nothing like an ice cold Mount Gay (rum) and Tonic, with a wedge of lime and lots of ice in a highball. For a beachy, summery kind of day. 

 

Or on a patio, balcony, poolside, lakeside, or even on a boat - as long as you aren't the captain. Or after work on a hot summer day. But it has to be nice weather. And warm, if not hot. 

 

@BrianShaw - Try an old fashioned. Or 2 parts Brandy with 1 part apple cider, squirt of lemon/ orange juice, maybe a drizzle of maple syrup and a light dusting of cinnamon. in a shaker with ice - martini glass, lemon rind twist.
