    I was on the "ask a question" thread and came in on the "what's your favorite alcoholic beverage" question. It gave me an idea to start a thread dedicated to that.

    I'd like, if everyone is willing, to share our favorite cocktails and the recipes if you know them.

    I suppose I'll go first. :) In the aforementioned thread, I noted that I prefer Long Island Iced Teas and White Russians as my beverage of choice. On a rare occasion I'll take a Tequila Sunrise or a simple modified Screwdriver.

    Ingredients are as follows...

    LIIT (parts each)
    1/2 gin
    1/2 white rum
    1/2 tequila
    1/2 triple sec
    1/2 vodka
    1/2 sugar syrup
    1 lemon juice
    4 cola
    ice
    Optional: 1/2 each of gold rum, dark rum & Cointreau.

    White Russian (parts each)
    2 Vodka
    1 Coffee Liqueur
    1 Half & Half
    Ice Cube

    Modified Screwdriver
    Orange Juice
    Mango Rum
    (use as much of each as you like)

    Enjoy!

    Drinking Mules lately.

    Mule:

    Lime wedge or two crushed in pint glass.
    double shot of whiskey of choice, I prefer Pendleton.
    fill remaining with ginger beer and ice.
    Great summer drink but seems to work year round for me.

    I'm easy.

    A good scotch. Make it a double, neat.

    Silverette likes margaritas. Patron Silver on the rocks, with salt.
