    When we're warm and toasty with the wood stove going, it's nice to sit back in the chair and have a drink!

    I am sure everyone has their personal favorites, and here is my Irish Coffee recipe:

    Best made in a clear glass coffee cup for visual effect.

    1 tbs light brown sugar
    1 oz Irish whiskey
    Coffee
    Heavy Whipping Cream

    First place brown sugar in warmed coffee cup. Add Whiskey and coffee. Stir until all sugar is dissolved.

    Pour cream over spoon to make a 1/2 cm thick layer of white cream on top of black coffee.

    Enjoy :)

    Note: If the cream won't float when pouring over a spoon adjust by adding more sugar to the next one. The dissolved sugar adds density to support the cream.

    I drink Cabernet Sauvignon most evenings with an occasional snifter of B&B to wrap the night up. If it were solely up to me and brown liquor never got the best of me, I'd sip wood ford reserve or knob creek neat

    Had a Black Apple last night.

    For those that aren't familiar it's a hard cider (woodchuck, strongbow etc) wtih Guiness poured over it. Pour the guiness over a spoon so it does not mix and you get a cool looking drink, very smooth with a little sweetness.

    Beer on tap, hard cider on tap, bottled beer, and good ol' canadian whiskey with diet cola. Rotate. May even throw in a hot buttered rum using harveys batter.

    I like to sip three finger Scotches, no ice, with a side of Poland Springs. I prefer the singles, but I have a love for a few select blends.

    A good Highland single malt (Dalwhinne is my current favorite, with The Macallan a close second), with one small ice cube.

    Sometimes a glass of Merlot, or a rum and coke, or a little brandy.

    Mostly beer, but occasionally hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps. Yukon jack makes some really tasty 100 proof schnapps.

    No, Macallan is a single malt... unless you mean Macallan is one of the whiskies blended into Famous Grouse?

    Good, fresh apple cider, warmed up, with an appropriate dose of Captain Morgan's spiced rum.

    Latley I've been enjoying the Angry Orchard hard cider...shot of The Captain added to give it some teeth.
    Also, to warm the bones...a different Captain...Capt' Mick's Spiced Corn Whiskey..a product of the Pinchgut Hollow Distilllery in WV. 2 Thumbs Up.

    Not a big drinker . . . but these are giving me some ideas . . . but I may have to see my buddy Aaron to hook me up with some Captains and Guiness . . . I'm all set on the Woodchucks.

    I'm typically a red wine drinker. But do like an occasional Makers Mark neat next to the fire.
