What is YOUR go-to drink?

Everyone says "coffee" or "tea" but come on......... what kind. I am not gonna get out of bed for Chamomile-sorry.

It needs to be Earl Grey or my basic Venti Iced London Fog Tea Latte from Starbucks.

Some people drink "Bangs" - if you know, you know. (Water is overrated anyway)

What is your drink? Do you take your morning cereal with a shot of Tequila?

Better yet what is you NIGHT drink when you have to stay up late and you'd rather die than continue staring at your Excel spreadsheet any longer?

Depends on if I am a hardo that day. Then its raw eggs and a ginger shot. I've got a tough stomach obviously

Jul 12, 2019

And if you are not a hardo? Have you ever had a pinky drinkity from Starbucks?

Jul 12, 2019

I am more of a Cold Brew sweet cream guy on my non-hardo days. And if all else fails thats why Monster exists, right?

1.) Water - I do no drink coffee and very much limit soda
2.) Whiskey - straight, in an old fashioned, or with coke if it's bottom shelf swill

Honestly barely ever drink water but I drink like 3 gallons of tea a day so I think I'm safe in that category. I do love a good whiskey tho

Jul 15, 2019

No one should be drinking soda, ever, truly atrocious for your body.

Before work - Cold brew with mocha shot and skim
After work - A nice IPA, Fiddlehead as of late

Maybe I led you to believe that this was a God given gift and not something I worked for, every single day of my life.

Energy drink that tastes like liquid gold but like @Tallfinanceguy said they are legitimate crack. Insane amount of caffeine. My old job forced us to drink them if we seemed tired and I never had an energy drink before that. It was honestly crazy I felt like I was gonna bounce of the walls lol

Jul 15, 2019

Is that legal??

My favorite part about VPX Sports is that the CEO is being sued by Monster Energy for claiming that Bang "reverses mental retardation."

That actually sounds good though. Who cares if your drink is boujee honestly. The only problem I have is when ppl make a boujee drink that sounds nasty. Like adding matcha to a caramel frappuccino or something

Jul 13, 2019

Matcha is dope. A caramel frapuccino is a disgusting beverage you should feel a lot of shame for consuming.

I drink a shit ton of water. It's amazing how different you feel when you are hydrated. Also, since I use a ~20oz bottle, it gives me an excuse to get up and refill it/walk around every 1-2 hours.

Other drinks are:

Caffeine:

A touch snobby with my coffee - predominately black coffee - fresh ground light roast, prepared by french press. Lately I've been adding a splash of milk/creamer to change it up though. I'll go through phases where I'll order a triple grande vanilla latte a few times a week though.

  • Side note: For anyone who wants to grind their own coffee, look for a conical burr grinder. It doesn't just smash up the beans like a pedestrian blade grinder. It actually grinds them for a deeper, richer, more satisfying flavor profile.

Used to drink Monsters and Red Bulls by the case, however, gave this up when I outgrew my frat boy personna. I'll now only subject my insides to this style of jet fuel on an annual-ish basis like an ex-junkie remembering that warm feeling.

Alcohol:

Currently in love with NE style IPAs - the hazier and juicier, the better. I used to be all porters and stouts but evolved into all beer styles. If I'm at a bar for beer, I'll more often than not go for the session IPA or any of the lower octane selections - It's tough to have 3 or 4 of the 8%+ beers and not be done for the day/night.

If it's a cocktail night, I'll do whisky or bourbon if I'm trying to be fancy but I'm not the biggest fan. Left to my own devices, it's gin & tonics all the way. Usually gets the "it taste like pine trees, I hate it" response but I love them. Super easy to go overboard here...

"ex-junkie" lmaoooooo

I used to drink 2-3 Lo-Carb Monsters a day. I don't know what it is, but drinking one of those after a hot and spicy meal is absolutely addicting. Relapse can be a very real thing for me with those as well. Glad to get off them because they are horrible for your teeth (and other things, I am sure) and always nice to drop an unnecessary $2,000-a-year habit.

Jul 12, 2019

I wake up and before I even brush my teeth, I chug a glass of water + preworkout with caffeine and synephrine - these two in conjunction wire you up for hours and keep your bodyfat consistently low. Then I go brush my teeth and by the time I finish brushing/pissing whatever it kicks in and then I go workout and am ready to conquer anything that day.

My roommate does the same thing but instead with ephedrine (aka bronkaid) but thats too intense imo

Jul 12, 2019

Yeah I used to use BCAAs before a work out but it just gave me anxiety. Honestly I am good with tea after my experience drinking a Bang lmao. But I tried a 3D the other day and that was really good so I've been exploring

Jul 12, 2019

typically BCAA should not give you anxiety, you probably bought the ones with a small dose of caffeine in it.

Jul 15, 2019

Hahaha your roommate rocking the EC Stack!

When I wanted to get off my ADD medication, I needed something to taper off and just caffeine alone was not cutting it. I had a buddy in college who used to cycle EC Stack on a cut primarily to lose weight, but would always talk about how awesome the energy / focus he had while on it. Out of desperation, I stopped at CVS on Day 2 of cold turkey from Concerta and scooped up a box of Bronkaid. For about two weeks, my morning ritual was to fill a muscle-shaker tumbler full of Cafe Bustelo iced coffee, pop a blister-pack of Bronkiad and drive to work. I jumped off as soon as I could because it's a dirty burn: I was twitchy, sweaty and edgy. I remember having zero tolerance for conversations that were not absolutely straight to the point and verbally, I was very loose / aggressive. A good friend / coworker of mine is notorious for telling very long stories and I just remember wanting to strangle the dumb fucker for what felt like a cruel and deliberate waste of my time. I did find the focus I was looking for in between spinning my wheels + tweaking out, but how dirty I felt physically + my lack of control emotionally was not a fun experience. I remember rolling off the project I was on and immediately hopping of the shit to suffer for the subsequent week until I was a productive individual again with only black coffee + water.

Good times, good times.

Water is dope, people have been boozin it like forever so you know its a classic. Sparkling water is just better water, so obv a fan. Also love some crisp coke, or some polar birch beer or ginger ale once in a while. For caffeine, I just drink keurig/nespresso stuff or starbucks cold brew. I tend to stay away from energy drinks unless they're mixed with vodka.

For wine, an italian red is my go to. Reminds me of home, when my mom and grandma would let me have some at our sunday dinners even though I was like 8. At least now I enjoy it and don't just spit it out in the sink anymore. Also love champagne.

For beer, I love the college classics like bud and natty cus theyre easy to drink. Also love the NE IPAs, since I live up here. Also a fan of the non-IPA's that our legion of craft breweries cranks out. Really good stuff all around. Some of the Elite Boutiques of the beer game up here are Nightshift, Trillium, Treehouse, Exhibit A, Lawsons, Lost Nation, and BLDG8. Good stuff.

For the hard stuff, vodka sodas are good and light, but gin and tonic/7&7 taste better. Vodka red bull is good when necessary. Trying to get more into whiskeys, but can't really figure it out so I'll just stick to crushing old fashioned's. It is what it is. Love some more upper tier mixed drinks too, such as espresso martinis (come at me), corpse reviver 2, and sidecars.

I do a lot of cold brews. Coffee, green tea, yerba mate. I throw them in the fridge the night before and its all ready to go when I wake up.

Cold brews taste smoother which will be appreciated by anyone who doesn't want milk/sugar/flavors in their drink.

Other thing I recommend people try is roasting your own coffee. You get green beans (I use sweetmaria.com) and roast them in a popcorn popper. Always having a fresh roast at home is better than any premium coffee could ever hope to be.

Vitamin water is my go to. The pineapple coconut zero is solid if you like those flavors and haven't tried it. Body armor also has good product

Jul 18, 2019

Jul 13, 2019

Diet Coke during the day - love the stuff, probably low-key addicted. Try to drink water as well, but probably don't consume as much as I should.

Old Fashioned if I'm having cocktails (gin martinis if I want to get loose), followed by espresso martinis.

Jul 13, 2019

Caffeine - Mocha medium sized, no whipped cream from Peet's.
Monster Mango Loco or Rockstar punched.

Alcohol - Gin & Tonic, Long Island Ice Tea, IPA's (anywhere form Lagunitas to Flying dogs).

I honestly don't like water, but I do try to drink 4 glasses a day which is an improvement from none. (Work in progress)

Jul 13, 2019

Black coffee with sugar in the morning, water throughout the day, and Jack Daniels mized with coke at night,

Jul 13, 2019

Morning: 3-shot americano in an 8oz cup (halfway between straight espresso and an americano, which I find is usually too watery), or a 3-shot traditional cappuccino

Lunch: Strawberry Guava Diet Coke

Evening: Super hazy IPA or single-malt scotch served neat

Jul 14, 2019

I recently picked up cold brews, love them as daily drink.

Jul 14, 2019

Jameson's, neat.

Zest tea for caffeine

Jul 14, 2019

Irish Carbombs

Jul 15, 2019

Homemade cold brew and a tall glass of water with breakfast.
I also try to drink at least 24oz of water before lunch while sitting at my desk (as mentioned before helps to force walking around), and 24oz after lunch.

I used to drink massive amounts of preworkout/energy drinks when I was working out in the morning, but now that I work out at the end of the day before going to bed, I have dramatically cut my caffeine intake to one or two cups of strong coffee a day. Consuming ~1000+ mg of caffeine a day probably wasn't healthy... Especially when 80% of it came in the form of basically battery acid.

For alcohol I prefer tequila (rocks, neat, shot, in a mixed drink, doesn't matter) or prosecco. Once in a while I'll have a vodka drink, but I'm pretty consistent with the above.

Jul 15, 2019

Hendrick's Gin with Tonic water and a cucumber. Recommend all to try this - good for a light, refreshing summer drink

Jul 15, 2019

Single origin Brazilian, Colombian or Guatemalan coffee (3 shot cappuccino) for my wakeup call.
Generally try and stay classy with wine or a Belgian Trappist beer for dinner, and some single malt Wiskey (Macallan or really smoky), with either one ice cube or a dash of water at the bar.
My signature used to be JD+redbull in the club, but the hangover now ruins the whole weekend.

Jul 15, 2019

Morning: if it's a chill day then normal coffee. if it's gonna be rough one then coffee w/ khalua.

Night: Whiskey/Scotch/Martini, and eventually becomes Espresso Martini (aka Black Out City Special)

Jul 15, 2019

Coffee. Day or night.

What kind? A pour over of a proper washed process Ethiopian from Yirgacheffe, Agaro, or Guji regions as of late. A washed Kenya, Peru, or that rare jammy Guatemala works too. But the apricot/peach/floral Ethiopians will get me out of bed at any hour. Get me another tropical, fruity pebbles tasting Panama Gesha of yesteryear or a winning Cup Of Excellence lot and holysh*t batman I don't care if Trump is tweeting nudes and sending nukes and the market enters an eternal downfall. I'm not picking up any phone calls until I'm done brewing my pour over and have tasted a few sips of that black gold.

Someone earlier in the thread mentioned having a conical burr grinder. I prefer perfectly aligned flat burr grinders as those better accentuate sweetness, clarity, and origin nuance in the cup.

Gin & Tonic seems like a way more popular drink on this forum than it was a few years ago. It appears that the sponsorship I received from the International Gin Council and Bombay Sapphire to mention them repeatedly in my posts a few years ago really paid off for them.

I honestly only drink Tito's Vodka & Soda (to maintain my physique). I know it sounds vanilla AF but I've gotten pretty used to it now.

Jul 17, 2019

Black coffee, Red Bull and Johnnie Walker Black.

Jul 18, 2019

Hot black coffee first thing in morning to wake up. Then it's iced coffee pretty much all day. I get 48oz bottles of starbucks iced coffee from the grocery store and drink it ALL day. If I go to starbucks, I usually order TWO venti iced coffees. I got into cold brew for a while but ultimately found that it takes a lot of work to make, and it doesn't taste that much different or better than regular iced coffee. If I need to stay up at night, probably more iced coffee, or an energy drink (red bull, monster, etc).

"Yeah, you know whatcha doin."

Jul 18, 2019

Oh also tea is for bitches. Go sip a cup of chamomile with your fucking pinky out you tea sipping chodes.

"Yeah, you know whatcha doin."

Jul 18, 2019

For alcohol, I drink tequila, lime and agave shaken on the rocks (2 parts tequila, 1 part fresh squeezed lime juice, 1 part agave. This is in hot weather months.

In cold weather months, I just drink bourbon.

Hyphy MUD: this shit will get you up and at 'em back into the k-hole of valuation modeling....

Things needed:
Red Solo Cup
Instant Coffee
Coca-Cola ( not that Diet Coke or Pepsi bullshit)

Pour a few scoops of some instant coffee into a red solo cup and then take your 12 ounce Coke and slowly pour in as you see the instant coffee foam up and react with the jet fuel that is Coca-Cola. Truly is an awe-inspiring sight to see.

Day: Water. All the damn water. I need to look young forever. Also, hot tea in the morning with honey. Usually, a blend I buy online (Boulder Breakfast) from The Tea Spot or green tea.

If the day is going to hell, I'll grab a Coke Zero.

Night: Hussong's tequila reposado as a shot , Tito's and water w/lime for casual drinks, and Casa Dragones joven on ice when I know its go time.

Jul 18, 2019

Can't resist..great topic. Hard core super strong black coffee first thing. Follow up with L'quip juicer...beets, cucumber, spinach, carrots, celery, ginger, apple, and guzzle down, you feel great. tons of water during the day, workout then steam room. I do this every other day.

Jul 18, 2019

As a Kyle it's required that I shotgun a Monster first thing when I wake up.

Back from 2 weeks in Scotland and England. So many amazing whiskys! Tried several Balvenies I have not seen here. My new fave though is Glen Scotia. And I tried a really fun whisky flight called The Unpronouncables at The Devil's Advocate in Edinburgh.
