    [QUOTE]Rach, I think I'm just a mixed drink snob.  We make our margs with fresh squeezed lime juice and agave.  Same with cocktails.  If I'm going to drink a cocktail, it's going to be good.  I have no problem drinking shitty beer and wine, though :)

    <div>Take the shitty beer out, and that's me too. I'm a beer snob too, but will happily drink three dollar bottles of wine. And apparently two dollar frozen wine drinks if it's hot enough.</div>

    [QUOTE]Muni - I'm right there with you. But when you're on a boat it's hard to concoct anything homemade. H is making infused everclear right now. Or something. I noticed all the peaches were missing and now I have jars of peach pits and everclear sitting in my pantry. Weirdo. One of H's cousin also makes moonshine. Shh, don't tell. We tried some over at the lake house and OMG. It was cinnamon and peach flavored. Dangerously delicious.

    I definitely prefer good beer, but if we're out on the boat or at the beach it's piss water all the way.  It's too hot to drink good beer out there.

  • I'm a...Coke product snob? Most beers and wines taste the same to be - bitter and gross. I honestly can't tell the difference between the cheap stuff and the good shiiit. But give me a Pepsi over a Coke and I'm guaranteed to notice the difference because Pepsi sucks.

    <div>truuuuuue story.  But since I can't drink the piss water,  I'd make some kind of punch instead.  I made one off of pinterest that was moscato, lemonaide and sprite for the pool this weekend.  And it was the best idea I have ever had.</div>

    [QUOTE]I much prefer good beer, but I don't mind drinking some PBR or Natty Light if the mood is right. Have y'all ever seen the beer at Walgreens? It's like $2 for a six pack. That I won't do.

    <div>He hasn't stooped to the Walgreen's brand, but there are two varieties at Trader Joe's for 2.99/6-pack that FI likes.  I haven't braved it yet though.  One of them is like 6.5% alcohol content or something though.</div><div>

  • Yeah, I wouldn't be able to do that kind of sugar.  I could probably do vodka and lemonade, but then I'd be wasted and no fun for anyone.

  • We drink Shiner Bock, Abita beer and St. Arnolds. Shiner is a Texas beer and Abita a Louisiana beer. St. Arnolds is brewed here in Houston. The brewery tour is fun, and they make this summer blend called Lawn Mower...it's a blonde. It's got depth to it, but it's lite enough to enjoy in the summer heat. It's our treat after we finish lawn work. We just pull our glasses out of the freezer and pour...
  • I like a Belgian Wit or a Hefeweizen in the heat.  Just not when directly OUT in the heat. Still a nice body and plenty of flavor, but not heavy.

    Snippy, is that Sam and Dean?

    I know, right?  I keep telling H that a bottle of wine isn't really that much, and I have lots of internet friends that drink a whole bottle all the time.  He doesn't believe me (that it's not that much, not that people are drinking it).

    No, can't say that I have. I've had it in Ecuador but I'm pretty sure it was just our Coke from a bottle.

    We are going to Epcot in October or November and I'm totally dragging H to the Coke factory to try all the Cokes from around the world. Even the gross ones.

    Arbor Mist is like... Boone's Farm, with a light fizz.  A hint of fizz.  Not really fizz, fizz is the wrong word.  Maybe just a little tickle.

  • Arbor Mist is alcoholic Kool Aid. It's a step above Boone's Farm.
