What’s your favorite drink or cocktail? What’s in it?
Question submitted by charm.vox.com
My standby drink is Tanqueray and tonic. Something about the, um, bitterness of it all appeals to me. I sort of think that being a gin-and-tonic man marks me as someone who came of age in the 80s. Does it?
I haven’t always been a gin-and-tonic kind of guy. When I first started to enjoy, um, adult beverages, I fell for Kahlúa. It’s still a favorite; the caffeine in the Kahlúa helps to offset the alcohol, and that’s a good thing. Over the years, though, I found I wanted something less sweet. And when it’s not gin, it’s something like Jack Daniel’s. Am I rugged or what?
When it comes to non-alcoholic drinks, I’m currently a big, big fan of Snapple’s Diet Lime Green Tea. It’s so sweet (not to mention lime-y) that it’s hard to believe it’s not fattening. Strong runners-up: Snapple’s Diet Lemonade Iced Tea and Coca-Cola Blak.
