You know I go to a lot of events so there is one thing that I have to deal with every single time: the open bar. I don't drink much at all in personal life. whenever I feel such needs arise, I'll just grab some Absolute or Jack Daniels from the closest liquor store and drink straight.
So this problem comes: whenever I approach an open bar, I don't know what to order. Sometimes, I just pointed to the bartender saying 'this" or 'that" and the bartender looked confused. Above all, I've ordered cranberry vodka a million times. That's the only name I can drop without hesitation. (except wine and champagne) Speaking of being a total peasant regarding this.
Please offer me the names of drinks you order at an open bar. So next time I can act more sophisticated when I drop those names at ease and with grace. But remember, I'm not looking for any names. I need the drinks to leave me such feelings when I order them: prestigious, expensive, classy, and tasty. In general, cool.
Thanks a lot.

haha, seriously, dude. I appreciate his help but I gotta tell a story: I went to a gala for young philanthropists in ny. They advertised it like was packed with Ivy dudes, but the vast majority was from Georgetown. Then I saw a ton of dudes couldn't leave their bud light bottles for a second while dressing in black ties. I was like, OMG, wtf?
It is just like seeing ladies in Oscar de la renta gowns do the dirty dancing shit.

Typically I get a jack and coke, standard go to. Or whiskey and ginger, that's always good.

If you're into vodka mixes, screwdrivers are a standard (vodka + oj).

It really depends what the open bar includes - cranberry vodkas are chick drinks.

I have a feeling you're a troll, but I'll bite anyway.

Cool is an attitude and state of mind a person does not get from a drink. A guy who is actually "cool" would be so no matter if he is drinking a Natty Ice can or a glass of blue label. He's cool because he doesn't give a shit what anyone else thinks.

That being said, drinking some quality scotch signals that you are classy, like expensive things, and maybe prestigious if anyone you're with knows about scotch or gives a shit.

Curious how people feel about the gin and tonic. I love them and for whatever reason they don't get me as hung over as whiskey cokes.

I always get shit from friends that say it is a 'mom drink'. I honestly don't give a shit either way but is gin and tonic really a girl drink or can I still preserve my masculinity while slamming G&T's?

If you're planning on staying sober, you probably shouldn't be ordering "one after another"

But either way, I really don't think it matters. Do you think someones really going to take notice that you ordered a Jack and Coke and then a Gin and Tonic?

I like good beer, craft beers tend to be better than mass produced water-beer (though I'll drink the hell out of Bud Light if it's all I got). I hate hipsters :(

My drink pretty much becomes what I've been drinking lately. When I start drinking whiskey or rum for a couple days, I don't even think about beer... and vice versa.

Scotch is meant to be enjoyed neat, with a few drops of water if preferred to help bring out the flavors.

Notice I did not bitch about people drinking their drinks on the rocks. How you drink your drink is your own business, but scotch is made to be enjoyed with its flavors not watered down. So if you like your scotch on the rocks, it may not be worth it to get an expensive or nuanced scotch, as it will cool the drink down too much and mask the flavor too quickly. A bourbon or whiskey would be better.

It really depends on the setting and mood.

If you're into smokey Islays, check out Ardberg Uigeadail. One of my personal favorites.

For those looking to get into scotch, some good beginner scotchs are Highland Park 12 or Macallan Sherry Oak. If you want to try something different, Japanese distillery Suntory makes an excellent single malt, Yamazaki 18.

One of these days I might do a thread on a crash course to spirits, including gin, whiskey, bourbon, etc.. While one doesn't need to be an expert, seniors in the industry do respect those that can appreciate a good drink, especially ones they can't share with their 26 year old trophy wives.

Maybe you yanks have the equivalent of Master of Malt in the US, they send you samples of whiskies, bourbons, ryes and rums throughout the price range (up to 40yo monsters). Great way to find out what you like. I have had batches of 30+ samples shipped throughout the world (gotta make it big to make up the shipping fee). Better taste that 30 year old Islay before you splash you half a grand on the bottle. For those of you running e-shops check out the website itself, it is a masterpiece of UI design.

3/28/13

wow, I missed alot over the holiday. Revsly, my comment was more towards the description than the scotch rocks. I prefer just a splash of water to bring out flavors on a more high-test, cask strength type whiskey. otherwise neat is best. From my experience, few drams of scotch can really stand up to ice, and if you're adding it to shoddy scotch, why drink it? most places that carry johnnie black carry something better.

blackthorne is dead on with the Uigeadail. Then again, you really cannot go wrong with any of Ardbeg's selection. They have become a powerhouse in the Islay region, especially for a distillery that has only recently (relatively speaking) began producing again. Other Islays to try are Bunnahabain, lagavulin 16, coal ila 12, and the classic Laphraoig.

To the comment about a 30yr old Islay, I ask, whats the point? the best part of those malts are the peat, iodine and smoke. those all but vanish after, say, 18yrs. Scotch that does best with long maturities to develop complexity are really the speysides and highlands, IMHO. Also, why drop a grand on a bottle? You're not going to find anything far more complex or satisfying for that much more money. The best selling single malt in scotland is the 12yr glenmorangie, a mere $35 a bottle.

I will turn 21 later this year haha.

3/28/13

very good. here's a timeline for becoming more savvy:

1. ditch plastic bottle shit immediately (if vodka, smirnoff & absolut are cheap, look classier & taste better. suck it up and pay the extra $10 to not be a chotch)

2. switch to a different light beer. it may be because I'm in the south, but there's a reason Keystone only comes in cans in grocery stores rather than draft in nice restaurants. miller, bud & coors are all acceptable, Keystone, Busch, Natty, they all have a bit of trashiness to them. if you like an interesting shitty beer like Schlitz, Natty Boh, or PBR, go for that. I'm a Miller, Rolling Rock, or Natty Boh (O's fan) man if I'm drinking something like that.

3. pick a craft beer or 3 you enjoy: Sam Adams is a good starter, but also try out different stuff, IPA, stouts, brown ale, amber ale, hefeweizen, etc. get sampler packs of common craft beers like Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Red Hook, Sweetwater, etc. and make note of what styles you like the best.

4. ditch fireball as a whisky of choice, fine to keep it for shots and whatnot. a good cheap whisky I drank in college is Early Times (better than Old Charter & Evan Williams, so not much to compare to, but still), but in my opinion you're better off spending the money on makers mark or jack (good starter whiskies). get acclimated to other liquor drinks like G&T. if you're out in a business setting and order a rum & coke when your colleague is sipping Woodford on the rocks, you're fucked. start educating your palate now.

Just to be clear, you're giving drinking advice and the beers you like at Miller, Rolling Rock and whatever the hell Natty Boh is?

No thanks

3/28/13

as I said, if I'm drinking light beer, yes I'll drink those. I'd much rather drink IPA or other craft beer if I'm not drinking bourbon or scotch, but let's face it: who's going to waste Glenlivet or some Green Flash IPA if you're on the beach or playing golf? seriously, try drinking IPA on the golf course. blended scotch I can do, but light beer is better.

just because I have good taste doesn't mean I'm not allowed to drink a light beer every now and again, especially now that summer's here.

by the way, Natty Boh is the official beer of the Baltimore Orioles, tastes just like every crappy American pilsner like PBR, but they support my O's so when I'm in Delmarva, I drink Natty Boh.

just because I have good taste doesn't mean I'm not allowed to drink a light beer every now and again, especially now that summer's here.

by the way, Natty Boh is the official beer of the Baltimore Orioles, tastes just like every crappy American pilsner like PBR, but they support my O's so when I'm in Delmarva, I drink Natty Boh.

Or don't be a douche, and just buy a G&T, or slim Gin if you are on a diet. Doesn't matter what brand it is.
A lager if you are at the pub and don't be a micro brew hipster. I won't be impressed if a junior orders a fancy drink, I just won't give a toss. For interviews I would always ask for the same drink as my interviewer not to waste time.

Different types of alcohol are only exciting when you first discover them; grow up.

EDIT: I should add it's OK to like a certain brand of alcohol, but if it's just drinks after works don't be a cok about it.

great points, you shouldn't order a brand JUST because it sounds cool, you should because you like it.

I would agree with this. It's more about drinking to your setting, and most importantly the crowd you are with, than it is about projecting an "image". If you're at a business dinner with people drinking class-growth wines and 25 yr scotches, don't order a Coors Lite. If you're at Bonaroo down south, probably not the best setting for your class-growth wines.

It has always helped me to remember that people drink to relax and feel more comfortable. I don't want my own personal alcohol choice to inhibit from my peers' relaxation. Overly trying to impress them will certainly do that, as will insisting on stuffy or expensive drinks in a setting/crowd that does not also appreciate that.

3/28/13
3/28/13

Well, are we talking a traditional, a Kingston, a Boulevardier, an Oaxan, or a Negroski?

3/28/13

Literally what I was going to say, maybe the best cocktail ever.

I wouldn't overstate how "impressive" a go-to drink is. If someone is drinking something nice or strong you might "good man/good stuff dude/whatever" but that's about as far as it goes. A guy getting an appletini might get made fun of but that probably hasn't made or broken many careers.

Tbh, someone drinking an old Barbancourt straight would get more sympathy from me than straight bourbon/scotch of any kind. Lol @ anyone being impressed by a TnT.

Stuff like drinking your coffee black is also a bonus I suppose, sort of the morning equivalent of drinking your drinks straight. And ordering cognac after your meal is a nice touch so long as people don't think you're an alcoholic.

3/28/13

Oh man. It's definitely my go to drink. So many way to drink a Negroni. Personally, I prefer it like I prefer my Manhattan's - with with a nice Rum instead. The Kingston Negroni (aka The Man About Town) uses a darker sugar cane or molasses Rum in lieu of Gin and gives more flavor and balance in my opinion than Gin does. As to the Cuban Manhattan, it's a perfect Manhattan made with a nice molasses rum as opposed to whisky.

3/28/13

I'll have to try that. Rum and Gin are my favorites cocktail-wise and a rum-based negroni sounds very intriguing. Ever had a ti punch?

3/28/13

Its one of the few uses I've found for my bottle of Rhum Agricole. It's a little different than a Daiquiri but it's still similar enough to appreciate the fact that most drinks are variants of each other just like the Greenpoint is a variation on the Brooklyn which is a variation of the Manhattan. I actually preferred making something similar to a Ti'Punch or a Daiquiri in college to the usual Jungle Juice because it wasn't so damned sweet and sugary (and less of a hangover inducer) and gives a great deal of flexibility.

3/28/13

Very nice, they can be delicious and oh so refreshing when done right. That's pretty much what Rhum Agricole is for although I've tasted some aged ones you can drink straight. I think a Ti Punch was the first alcohol my dad made me try which was probably smart on his part because I was scared to try anything for a while after that.

3/28/13

If you like a Ti'Punch, you might want to try a Caiparinia. It's similar but it uses Cachaca instead of rum. I've become very fond of both the drink and the liquor actually. I happen to enjoy sipping on aged Cachaca, but it's so hard to find in the US.

3/28/13

Yeah I like them, there was a bit of a craze for them last year. I'll have to try aged ones, I didn't know that existed.

3/28/13

Side thought for you lads and ladies,

There are very few things in life that are universal between all peoples, but everybody drinks, and everybody mates ("dates", hooks up, whatever you want to call it). The manner in which you choose to do both of those things says a lot about who you are as an individual. Consider that when choosing your drink, your setting, and your aura.

3/28/13

One of my favorite drinks is "The Godfather" interesting name to say the least... It is pretty simple: scotch, amaretto and a couple of limes.

Next time you are with a girl that likes sweet drinks get them a vodka sprite with some pineapple juice. You'd be amazed how good it tastes and how much girls love it.

@"GoldenCinderblock" Although I realized I had a palate that could help me appreciate the taste of alcohol since I was in High School, it wasn't until college where I was really able to expand my tastes. I got into beer my freshman year - my routine was buy a case of beer and try it. If I liked it, I made a note of it. I bought other beers by the same brewery until I went through every beer that particular brewery had made and the beer distributors could get (until I turned 21 of course, in which case I had one of the best bars in the US according to both Playboy and Beer Advocate at my disposal to try new beer and expand my palate even further) and went on to the next one. When it came to liquor, it was buy a bottle, taste it and then figure out what I can make with it if I think it's great for mixing or enjoy it straight if I liked it straight. That's exactly how I did it. As I said, the best advice I have is buy and try til you find what you like.

Do you like Diageo? I've been a big cognac fan ever since the release of their 1980 offering, Hennessy. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their liquor products. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was in Hennessy where Diageo's presence became more apparent. I think Johnnie Walker was the company's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three shitty whiskey brands. Christy, take off your robe. Taste to the brilliant ensemble of barley, water and yeast. You can practically taste every nuance of every ingredient. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of flavor craftsmanship, the sheer fermentation, this scotch hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little.

I take my drinking very seriously so...

-if it's work related typically a sapphire martini, dry with a twist, or a Woodford on the rocks. If it's with external people or people I don't know well and have to stay sharp, I limit it to one, maybe two if they order another, then switch to red wine.

-micro brews if it's more of a more of a bar, it's during the day or if I'm watching sports.

-maybe it's a holdover from when I lived in London, but a gin & tonic on a summer afternoon outside can really hit the spot. Especially at the beach.

Going out with friends can be one or a combination of all of the above. If I want to get a bit mullered, I usually stick with the first bullet and just increase the number.

Totally agree, season plays a huge role in what I drink.

G&T and sangria in the summer
Whisky in the fall/winter

Beer year 'round

Martini here and there (usually more determined by atmosphere)

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for freedom of thought which they seldom use.

3/28/13

I'm definitely going to be in agreement on the seasons thing.

While I will drink anything all year round, there are definitely choices I make that are catered more towards the seasons. I'll tend to drink dark Rum more in the summer and winter and light Rum in the spring and fall. Gin is definitely a Spring/Summer drink. Same goes for Tequila as well. If I'm drinking an anejo or repasado Tequila, then it's an all year round drink, much like Whisky. Cachaca is reserved for the spring and summer. Vodka, I try to avoid, but prefer it in the summer because of it's ability to blend into anything. Amaros and other somewhat bitter aperitifs are always drunk year round, but it depends on what I'm drinking and how I'm drinking it. Calvados is drank in the fall. Chartreuse is drank in the winter, as are Benedictine and Brandy, sometimes alone and sometimes together.

For wine I generally prefer Red to White, but will enjoy a nice glass of White during the summer if I am just hanging around.

For Beer, there is always a beer for every occasion. Certain styles I prefer during certain times of the, but beer can always had any time of the year.

I love root beer. It's like liquorice in a bottle.

Those who can, do. Those who can't, post threads about how to do it on WSO.

3/28/13

Depends on the occasion of course. By default, I like to have a nice whisky neat whether in formal settings or just having a relaxed but not too wild get together. I will sometimes substitute whisky for a higher-quality reposado tequila like Aha Toro, a good Armagnac or Cognac, etc if available at the given venue.

If I'm not in the mood for spirits, or just want to take it easy I will either have a good Belgian craft beer or if not available will take something like a Heineken. Maybe I might spring for a red wine if the venue has anything of decent quality. As for long drinks, I usually have gin with orange instead of the usual tonic, and I like the campari and orange juice mix for summer evenings especially. If I have time to prepare in advance, I like to dice up some fresh fruit, put it into a pitcher and pour sangria over it and leave it in the fridge overnight. Awesome drink for summer nights.

If it's a matter of getting inebriated before a party with old classmates, then my go-to drinks are shots of tequila with orange and cinnamon, and vodka mixed with energy drinks.

So true but then again, time is of the utmost importance.

Depends on the season/event/occasion.

From April-October my go to if possible are summer beers. This can start earlier if I see them. My go to is Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy.

When watching hockey I prefer Molson Canadian. It's the main beer at Joe Louis Arena in Michigan so it just seems natural now.

Mexican restaurant I'll get a Margarita pretty much every time. Also, tequila.

Depending on what venue I am at also depends on what I'll have. If I'm at a Whiskey bar, I'll get whiskey, vodka bar, vodka.. etc.

Generally though, 9 times out of ten, I'll be drinking some sort of beer.

3/28/13

After posting initially and reading some of these responses, and I mean none of this in a demeaning way (please see most of my posts, I'm not an ass and I actually do have some real world experience) don't order a something and coke, a weak mixed drink (massive difference between some things stated on here and say an awesome drink like a sazerac that can have you talking to Picasso after 3...) for a work outing. Just pick one professional drink and have that in your stable. Have a gin and tonic (although you need to name a gin-even a tanqeray and tonic but choose sapphire or Plymouth if you want to be cool and say plymouth and tonic). Or a scotch an water (once again, need a call like black label, so order a black label and water, rocks). I may place too much on a drink selection but if you're the 22 year old analyst or the intern who may even be under 21, I see that as cool. It's not a quantitative thing but I was thrown a kid that we needed to hire because he was an LP's favorite long lost son but when he ordered a call bourbon straight, he eventually became one of my key guys and a friend that I'd do anything for after years of working.

3/28/13

Great points. I'd like to add that, in my opinion, knowing what you drink is incredibly important. First, it's a great conversation piece, being able to describe the process used, the region, or what makes it different. Second, it shows you're an interesting and intelligent person.Take a little bit of time and learn what you drink. For example, if you often order bourbon, you should know what differentiates bourbon from other whisk(e)ys. As a youngin', I find I always have something to talk about with older people when at a bar. I cannot tell you how many interesting people I've met after as a result of an order. That being said, don't learn weird shit just to learn weird shit. Find something you order often and learn the heritage and eccentricities of it. You'll be much more interesting.

My go to drink is whiskey, either straight or an old fashioned. I have a few go-to's, but usually I'll look to see what catches my eye. If I'm at a wedding or event where I'm likely to be consuming a few, I usually keep it simple with ginger ale. A few weeks back, I had Hendricks Gin with Cucumber. It was incredibly refreshing, so I've been making that at home lately. Great summer drink. If it is more of a beer oriented establishment, I'll order some kind of craft beer (Sixpoint if it's available) or a Guinness. Or a black and tan, which I recently re-discovered after not having one for a few years.

Whisk(e)y. None of that stupidly peaty nonsense, though, because if I wanted to drink iodine I'd pay my local chemist a visit instead. Laphroaig, Oban, Lagavulin, Caol Ila, Talisker - I'd sooner pour it into a drain than down my throat.

Yamazaki 12 is my go-to because it's easy on the palate and easy on the wallet. Hibiki 17/21 or Glenmorangie 18 for something a little richer. Almost always neat, with iced water on the side.

3/28/13

@"Angus Macgyver" I was at a bar once and my friend ordered me a japanese whiskey but was not too sure which one the bartender poured. It tasted awful to me though. I assume you would recommend the Yamazaka and Hibiki?

I completely agree with you on Oban as well. That honestly tasted and smelled like gasoline to me.

3/28/13

@"XSX82" : Suntory's Yamazaki and Hibiki are my usual choices, yes. Yamazaki is pretty easy drinking. Light. Goes down nice and smooth. 12 is very soft, which is why it's my go-to. The 18 is a little stiffer, but still very smooth as far as whiskeys go. Hibiki 12 has slightly more body than the Yamazaki 12, and Hibiki's 17 is quite rich. Hibiki 21 even more so, of course, but I am not certain that the price difference is worth it, especially for an unsophisticated drinker such as myself. Have had the good fortune to have tried Hibiki's 30-year version, too, which was almost certainly relatively wasted on me, though I could still appreciate why people like it. Hakushu I have found kind of meh.

Nikka also makes some good whiskey, and tends to be excellent value for the money - I found that Nikka's Coffey Grain, in particular, was quite interesting, and feels rich but still smooth. Other notable Nikka whiskeys include their various single malts from the Yoichi, Miyagikyo and Taketsuru lines, though I haven't tried these.
