    In response to Chundles' and Lacreo's comments in the soda thread, I decided to pose the all-important question.

    MR members, what is your favorite mixed drink?

    I'm 15, so I can't really offer anything here, but I'm still interested to hear what people have to say.:p

    Well, I do. :) Gin and tonic with a slice of lime, go easy on the tonic.

    Brave Bulls are great, as are Black Russians.

    Gin and Tonic is classic. And I also like the fru-fru drinks, like Blue Hawaiians.

    The dude also enjoys a White Russian.

    The dude prefers a Bourbon Sidecar.

    Once, when the dude was a young college lad, a friend bought him his first martini shaker. The dude decided to make a rum and coke, and being young, in college and stupid, he shook the rum and coke. :p

    Vodka and tonic with a good twist of fresh lime.... easy on the tonic is the choice when I want something refreshing.

    I also like a good mojito although that's probably classed as a cocktail rather than a mixed drink.

    On the soft-side, I enjoy orange or lemon squash with my London water. Bottled water, I'll take neat

    Screw driver.
    Though I'll drink pretty much anything mixed with vodka. ;)
    I like experimenting really.
    A little of this a little of that....

    Most of the time I drink either beer, tequila or wine.
    For mixed drinks, I'd say Vodka+OJ, Bloody Mary, or vodka with something else.
    I also like Bourbon+Coke, but almost never drink it.

    As a big fan of the Gin and Tonic, my brother suggested a rum and tonic. Now I thought this was a ridiculous idea, but then I tired it. Yeehaw!

    BUT, it can't be a silver rum like Bacardi. You have to use an amber colored one (but not a spiced rum like Captain Morgan's). Personally I'd suggest Mount Gay, it's real Barbados rum...

    I once put beer in my morning cereal. Not half bad actually. As long as you don't use a cheap beer. ;)

    Gin and Tonic w/lime (make mine a Bombay S. or Tanqueray...a waste of good gin, but much better than a tonic made with bad gin).

    Not making the list: A Seabreeze (vodka, cranberry/grapefruit juice), a Greyhound (vodka, grapfruit juice -- no egg white, thanks), or a Margarita on the rocks (mix, tequila and ice).

    All four are summer drinks for me though, since the Pacific NW winter doesn't really lend itself to ice-cold, fruity drinks. An occasional Hot Chocolate with peppermint schnapps come up this time of year.

    Vodka Lemon lime and bitters

    White Russian

    A 5:1 martini, 5 parts gin and one moment silence for the vermouth

    Vodka fresh lime muddled with ice and cranberry juice

    Kaluha, Creme de Menthe and milk. It's just as good without the milk but doesn't last as long. We call it a "Get Nude" cause that's generally what happens. Tastiest drink in the world.

    Baileys, baileys, baileys, baileys, baileys and ice. Yes, I have been known to drink it straight out of a stainless steel milkshake container. I can drink a bottle in about half an hour.

    Red wine, an open fire and the soft curves of a lady under my hand. Oh god I miss that one.
