My current non-alcoholic obsession is Passion Fruit La Croix. I have tried a lot of the flavors and liked most of them but my goodness, I love the Passion Fruit!

And after years of being completely turned off by IPA craft beer, I found hazy IPA's. I am such a convert (and very late to the party, lol). My current favorite is Sierra Nevada's Hazy Little Thing (Chico, Ca), followed by Saturhaze by Green Flash (San Diego). Third place is Mindhaze by Firestone Brewing (Paso Robles). Someday we will be able to go to breweries again <<sigh>>. Until then, it's just take out.

By the way, we received a ton of mint in our farm box this week. I checked out the liquor cabinet and found some Malibu Rum (why do I have that??), so tonight I am making Coconut Mint Mojitos. Wish me luck.

With me, it’s the same ole, same ole. I’m just not very adventurous when it comes to food and drink. So, I have a couple of Gentleman Jack & Coke highballs most afternoons. Back in the olden days, when we could go out to eat, I would have an Old Fashioned or some variation, thereof. I think I will make it a point to branch out and start trying some different bourbons. I’m looking forward to reading this thread and see what kind of responses you get.

That looks delicious! A little taste of the islands.
Sweet and simple, with ingredients that are readily available. In Hawaii, I prefer POG Nectar and Hana Bay Dark Rum. Thanks for starting this thread. I can't wait to see more suggestions.

Someday if we ever get to go to breweries or tasting rooms again, you can get a flight of tasters. That way you will be able to find something that you may like. That's how I found that I hated IPA's but liked hazy's.

Fortunately, in Minnesota, several of the craft beer tap rooms have reopened, but with outdoor seating only.

Blood Mary’s lately.

I do love Hazy IPAs as well as a excellent Saison. It will be nice to go to our local brewery for date night.

I love IPAs. I've only had them a couple of times since we've been locked down, and that was from a take out place that is also a brewery. Tonight I finished off the Newcastle that had been hanging around. We've also been drinking some cab that my dd got from a winery in Napa she really likes. But really, we haven't been drinking much, maybe a glass of wine on the weekend.

Ours may have opened, then closed again - I don't know because we are just staying home for now. The last place that I went before we unofficially locked down was my favorite local place, Second Chance Brewing. It was also where we have a last minute 35th wedding anniversary party. Those were the days, lol. I'll give them a little plug: https://www.secondchancebeer.com/locations/carmel-mountain/

I am spoiled here. My youngest lives in the philly area near tired hands. Our timeshare in VT is close to Lawson's Finest and a short drive to The Alchemist. We drive often to Burlington for Foam. My oldest lives close to Trillium. When we visit we drive right by the best IMHO Treehouse.

I imagine you cannot get any of those. I like your west coast IPA's too. Another you can probably get is Sam Adams New England IPA. I do not usually recommend many Boston Beer products but this one is very good.

The latest is milkshake IPA's, It usually is a hazy IPA with lactose to increase the creaminess. I am not the biggest fan as most breweries overdo the lactose and make it sweet and to my palate heavy.

A milkshake was my gateway hazy. I had it on Maui of all places and it was Ola Brew Lilikoi Lime Zest Milkshake. It was so good that I had two. And the rest is history.

You would have to talk to my husband about beer - it's his hobby/passion. I am just along for the ride.

My favorite is a Narcoosee’s Sidecar. It is served at Narcoosees Restaurant at the Grand Floridian Resort in Walt Disney World. I have no idea what the ingredients are, but I love the sugar on the rim of the glass. We are in the midst of packing up and moving and all of the spirits are way in the back of the POD. I sure could go for one right about now. Saddest Fourth of July ever with fireworks cancelled. Have been drinking lots of wine though....that much less to worry about moving.

I had a Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing with @DaveNV a couple nights ago. The local brew-pubs have all opened then closed again. Some breweries and restaurants with outdoor seating have stayed open and offered carry-out package goods. That will work all Summer, but sometime after September when the days get cold and dark it won't be pretty.

Those who want some alcohol may need to get it by IV with the Chloroquine!

I need a good Bloody Mary recipe. I like the idea of them, but a lot of times they are way too spicy for me.

I always like a good Gin and Tonic in the summer but I love a good Mai Tai like Art.

I am a red wine drinker myself. My DW and I discovered a family owned winery in Pahrump, NV (just over an hour from Las Vegas) recently, so took a day trip there on Monday. Drove through Red Rock Canyon National Park (free with my Senior Lifetime Pass) on the way, had lunch in Pahrump and then hit the Sanders Family Winery. We had the place to ourselves until we were about to wrap things up, which made it even better. Very good white and red wine and they had complimentary tastings. The owner started the Pahrump Valley Winery and Restaurant many years ago, sold it, and then started this one. We met him while we were there. The staff was very friendly too. Someone else is trying to start another winery up there and make the area the wine capital of Nevada. They primarily ship in grapes from the Central California coast and other locations, but do have own a vineyard as well.

I also enjoy Kahlua and Cream, although I use Almond Milk, every now and then. Bought a bottle of Kahlua when we were in Cabo last year. It's all the same, but it seems to taste better knowing I got it there.

Cheers.

Mike

Winter: Bourbon and ginger
Summer: Gin and tonic, gin/vodka gimlet, Moscow mule, rum punches, mojitos, margaritas on the rocks frozen concoctions of almost any kind

Our pool opened about a month ago. Our tiki bar at the pool is one of the best benefits of membership. :)

We prefer Koloa Dark Rum and POG. On the Mainland you can buy POG at Krogers.

We mainly drink straight whisky. Gin and Tonic is great during the summer and it is a health food. If it is true Tonic it has quinine and helps with malaria. We also drink chilled Tequila and Vodka straight during the summer.

In summer it’s white wine or margaritas, though I had screwdrivers today. I had a Blue Hawaii at a Chinese Restaurant a couple of weekends ago.

In colder weather it’s white wine or White Russians or Irish cream. I also like a toasted almond.

None of this is good for my weight which I really need to get down because of my cholesterol. I don’t want to take statins.

It's been quite warm (very high 80's F) here lately and will be for at least the next week so we got our Margarita machine out this afternoon. DH had a frozen Margarita and I had a Pina Colada. The brain freeze was worth it!

Kind of jealous that you have a margarita machine! How fun!
