Question of the Day: Shaken not stirred

Tanqueray
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.

I loves me an Amaretto Sour! I also love just plain ol’ Bailey’s over ice.

As far as non-alcoholic bevs are concerned … there’s nothing better than a Sonic Sunrise from Sonic! Do they have Sonic drive-ins in Philadelphia?

The nearest Sonic is somewhere in West Virginia, and I’m not going there without an escort. I grew up in Oklahoma, though, so I know all about the goodness of Sonic’s cherry limeades and coconut cream pie shakes. Yum.

And now I’m thinking about Sonic’s chili pie. Maybe I really will have to go to West Virginia.

When I was a kid, the Sonic in my hometown served fried pickles, too–Pickle O’s, I think. The last time I was at a Sonic, though, that particular treat wasn’t on the menu. Bummer, I know.

Hey, LilRed, if the SuperSonics move to Oklahoma City, will the new mascot be a Sonic shake?
