View Full Version : Poll: The best thing to drink
Tue, 21st Nov '00, 3:00pm
I don't know the english word for it, but I want top concentrate on sugar liquid with C02 bubbles in it. Like Coca-Cola. Because Pepsi is the best! Nothing's like some bottles of Pepsi on a LAN, or a really cold one after school. So what do you think?
Tue, 21st Nov '00, 8:22pm
The word is soft drinks.
And it's too damn cold out here to think about cooling myself down any more. ;)
Try next summer.
Tue, 21st Nov '00, 8:56pm
mmmmmmm Beer. nothing like a pint or 2 of cool Guinness.
Tue, 21st Nov '00, 11:47pm
My mate likes cream soda with milk, which tastes like fizzy milk and makes me want to throw! But he seems to enjoy it. The best drink has got to be free drinks, just go to a bar and pretend its your B-Day and.... well.... yay!
Tue, 21st Nov '00, 11:48pm
Water's the healthiest drink...
Fri, 24th Nov '00, 10:46am
Wingfoot you don't know what real Guinness is. ;)
Everywhere in the world it tastes completely different.
Nothing beats an Irish Guinness.
Soft drinks try this one -
Fanta orange with a dash of lime and a dash of blackcurrent. Very refreshing :)
Fri, 24th Nov '00, 7:27pm
well Fergus i guess you got me there. i have never been to Ireland, so i have never tasted a real Guinness.
there are a few good Irish pubs here in Chicago that pour a pretty damn good one though, but i have heard from friends that nothing compares. i'll have to slide on over there sometime, not only for the Guinness but to see land its self.
water is sweet. abosulutly one of my favorite ways to quench my thirst, although it certainly is not the healthiest drink out there. i am thinking anything with lots of vitamins in it would be heathier than water. its more like you need water to survive.
Fri, 24th Nov '00, 7:34pm
Thats what i meant! Yes it would be better to have drinks with vitmains in...stuff like orange squash is good also...
Sat, 25th Nov '00, 6:08am
Plain water is the best
Sat, 25th Nov '00, 8:43am
Give me some straight finnish vodka any day!
Sat, 25th Nov '00, 8:44am
Don't get me wrong though, I'm no heavy drinker. I actually prefer various fruit juices. I think they are potentially the most healthful drinks.
Tue, 28th Nov '00, 9:47am
Pepsiiiii! Norwegian beer is expensive and crappy, or so I've heard. Haven't tasted much else.
Tue, 28th Nov '00, 3:45pm
Beer! And we have in Québec a lot of microbrewry who make excellent beer!
"La Maudite" "La Fin du Monde" "La blanche de Chambly" etc etc. These beer are about 8% alc.
Tue, 28th Nov '00, 5:57pm
Yeah, Mollusken, I prefer Pepsi over Coke (will explain later), but my favorite beverage is a Coke product.
Dr. Pepper. It just has to be the best soft drink. Ever. Although a good Plum Wine is an excellent entertainment choice. How many of you folks who say that beer is best etc. are actually old enough to drink?
If you put a T-Bone Steak in a bowl of Coca-Cola, it will dissolve in two days. Ick.
Tue, 28th Nov '00, 8:21pm
Thing is Dr. Pepper gives a bad aftertaste...
Wed, 29th Nov '00, 12:01am
The blood of virgins is pretty refreshing. And gatorade.
Wed, 29th Nov '00, 12:03am
And for the record: Pepsi is for kids and girls - flat and sticky-sweet. Coke is a man's drink. Bites your tongue like a hungry hooker. ;)
Wed, 29th Nov '00, 5:52am
I must agree with Neverworlder on those last two statements.
Wed, 29th Nov '00, 7:49pm
Pepsi? Tastes like rust.
Wed, 29th Nov '00, 8:29pm
How would you know how a hooker's bite feels Neverworlder? Don't answer that.
Besides, all sodas are kids' drinks. Now, let's talk Kool-Aid.
Thu, 30th Nov '00, 12:49am
Vodka? I prefer white wine and champayne...don't ask why i just do!
Thu, 30th Nov '00, 4:10am
I drink just about anything. Not beer though, I don't like most beers. It's always "beer this beer that" it really doesnt appeal to me much. I like red wine. Or vodka. Or kool-aid too. Or kool-aid with vodka in it.
Thu, 30th Nov '00, 7:39pm
And how often have you had vodka, wine, etc?
It seems to me, that besides our illustrious moderators, very few of us are old enough to drink. I myself am only 18 (19 in 2 weeks).
Thu, 30th Nov '00, 9:18pm
Hehee! I'm 15! i get me drinks off me dad but me mum...nah!
Fri, 1st Dec '00, 12:03am
Same case here Sniper. I get the aformentioned drinks from my parents.

The best soft drink is iron brew and white wine good to. Anyone from Scotland?
Fri, 1st Dec '00, 3:31am
Fri, 1st Dec '00, 2:13pm
I've always been a Guiness fan...But I also got hooked on Boddington's Bitter when I was in the UK about 3 years ago...But it doesn't taste as good in the States for some reason.
Fri, 1st Dec '00, 7:53pm
Well, one thing i love about beer adverts is the women in them!
Fri, 1st Dec '00, 8:09pm
Do anybody have see the "Old Milwaukee" beer advertising?? (dont know if is only in Canada) wow! Any male would surely buy ton a barrel of this beer for these chicks!
Wed, 13th Dec '00, 6:04am
lol anyone here try pee b4? haha....well i like sierra mist or Sprite
Thu, 14th Dec '00, 2:24pm
Think most of us here enjoy good-looking women ;)
Sun, 17th Dec '00, 7:01am
I myself have taking a liking to Everclear as of late.
As for beer: guiness, killians, heineken (sp?) are all decent. And of course labat blue and budweiser.
The Fat Egg
Sun, 17th Dec '00, 10:04pm
beer, or japanese vodka, nothing beats that.
Mon, 18th Dec '00, 4:45am
Everclear? Christ almighty, just drink rubbing alcohol. I took a shot of that once. Once. Give me a nice clean vodka on the rocks with some lemon wedges crushed with sugar in the bottom of the glass. Man is that nice.
Incidently, that's a shot of Everclear, not rubbing alcohol. Though I doubt there's much difference going down.

Nothing beats Gaterade when you've just got back from playing hockey or going for a 2hr bike ride in the summer.
Apple Juice is very good too.
Mon, 18th Dec '00, 11:50pm
Agava juice is an interesting flavour too... I remember drinking it in London. (Brought some home too). I can't get it anywhere here.
Tue, 19th Dec '00, 12:28am
Beer: Sleeman Honey Brown (I do enjoy Double X from Mexico with salt and lime as well)
Whiskey: Crown Royal (Glenfidich and Soda is good if you like sipping scotch)
Thirst quencher: have to agree with Gatorade (water is good too)
Anyone tried good ice wine? Nice for sipping after supper (just have to take out a double mortgage to afford it!)
Tue, 19th Dec '00, 1:06pm
Actually, I prefer Poweraid to Gatorade. I just like the flavors better.
As far as wine, I like plum. A good, slightly chilled, Chinese plum wine. It's not that expensive, or prestigious, but it's sweet without being sickly so.
Tue, 19th Dec '00, 2:28pm
Since it's Christmas now, I've turned to "Julebrus", or "Christmas soft-drink" translated. I only drink the red one of course, not the orange one. Even if I have to travel a lot longer to get the red one. But my motorbike is fast. How fast I don't now, because the speedometer has never been fixed. I would guess about 65 km/t, and it is 14 (!) years old.
Thu, 21st Dec '00, 1:03am
Hate Wine and Beer but I like Orange Juice. It's just great. And Apple Juice, and I like Watermelon, even though it's not a drink it's 97% liquid and I love Ribina. Anyone tasted that soft drink, it's fantastic.
Thu, 21st Dec '00, 2:54am
yep nothing like some freshly squeezed O.J. love it and its good for you.
The Fat Egg
Thu, 21st Dec '00, 4:44am
I love vodka martinies, everclear is some seriuos stuff, and you're talking to someone who drinks a quart of absolute vodka a day (at least, i usually also have a few beers and a shot or two of tequila) and doesn't feel the least bit drunk. That is some good stuff.
Thu, 21st Dec '00, 4:43pm
Whoa Fat Egg, can we say 'liver transplant?'
That's quite a bit to drink.
Thu, 21st Dec '00, 4:47pm
Tequila....The breakfast of Champions! :p

Thu, 21st Dec '00, 10:53pm
actually, I mean only in the christmas season, hey it's traditional for russian people to get drunk on holidays, if i were to drink that much every day i would be dead lying in a trash can somewhere.
Fri, 22nd Dec '00, 3:07am
I suppose it is the Christmas season. I didn't realize you were Russian Fat Egg. I've been known to drink a bit of vodka now and then myself (with orange juice!)
Merry Christmas! :)

Oops!!! :cry::wail: I didn't realise the post was this old. I have a bunch of topics open up in a lot of windows and replied to a really old one. In my defence Mead really is the best drink that I can remember as well as being the first alchoholic beverage I ever tried.
>Please forgive. Me feel Stooopid!!
Tue, 26th Feb '02, 2:52pm
What? A topic on Sorcerer's Place about drinking.... and I didn't even reply?! How is that possible?
I prefer beer.... especially Grolsch, German Beer and Heineken... and Murphy's Irish Red.... Sometimes I take a whiskey... Scottish Whiskey... (Glennfiddich, Dimple or Johny Walker Black label)
Tue, 26th Feb '02, 2:56pm
I don't see the issue? It's perfectly valid to open old topics if you have something to add to them. I would say though that someone has re-opened the old name one whilst there is a new one going. That might be a bit over the top.
Anyway, on topic:
Going out: Beer.
At home: Milk or Tea. I don't drink alcohol at home as a rule. I do go out a lot though...
For work: Coffee (got to keep awake you know)
Tue, 26th Feb '02, 3:03pm
might as well join the chorus then ... all rubicon exotic fruit drinks (lychee, passion fruit etc) www.rubiconexotic.com (http://www.rubiconexotic.com) -plus some really rare stuff- tamarind juice, :) fizzy jizz, :toofar: etc.
Tue, 26th Feb '02, 3:44pm
The god!!! Shame on you :o:o
You scared me :aaa::aaa: to death!! Fortunately there are some nice and understanding people around who don't mind helping a newbie in trouble! Thanks guys!!
And headbanger that's a very good selection of beverages you have there man.

See, I was always afraid to re-open old topics, so you're my hero.
Alcoholic beverages: Margaritas, Prarie Fire, wine, sake, Barenjager, hard cider, and mead. I want to brew mead so bad.
Non alcoholic: Tea. I love tea in all incarnations, hot, cold, Asian, British, green, black, flavored, and anything in between.
I won't, however, drink that nasty brown fluid that Nestea and Lipton try to foist upon us, claiming that it's brisk.

Tue, 26th Feb '02, 6:09pm
Nothing like a tasty tequila and orange juice! (things get desperate when I'm running out of alcohol)
Tue, 26th Feb '02, 6:35pm
Best Drink: Johnny Walker, all colors
Worst Drink: Concrete Mixer (Bailey's mixed with lime juice)... don't try this one, just pour some in a glass, see what it does and then think about it in you stomach.
Tue, 26th Feb '02, 9:10pm
I like FruitWorks. Tons of sugar in that stuff. :) I also like almost any kind of root beer.
Wed, 27th Feb '02, 5:56am
What? What? This is an old topic? :wail:
I got all excited seeing the juxtaposed posts about "Sprite" and "all of us here love beautiful women". But, since I now realise they were posted before I arrived, I guess I *don't* have a fan club after all... :(
I love beer. I don't like soft drinks much but root beer is OK- although maybe just because it has "beer" in the title! My favorite non-alcoholic drink is Perrier.
Wed, 27th Feb '02, 8:30am
Beer and water! I don't drink anything else:)
Wed, 27th Feb '02, 12:32pm
A good glas of Saint Emilion Grand Cru 1989 or a handwarmed glas of pure Lagavullin 12 years old single malt both to be sipped near a burning hearth.....
Wed, 27th Feb '02, 12:37pm
I cant think of any more!!
Wed, 27th Feb '02, 1:06pm
Alcoholic: Tequila Sunrise
Non-alcoholic: Water, orange juice, and Coca-Cola! Lots better than Pepsi. :)
(Can diffrentiate between most cola drinks available in Finland by taste only, having done so since the age of 12)
Wed, 27th Feb '02, 1:39pm
Oh, a reanimated topic - and it only smells slightly rotten :D
weeeeeeeeeeeeeeell, then :D
non-alcoholic: A very cool Coke on a very hot day from a glass-bottle (no bloody Pepsi :flaming:) is extremely refreshing - though then even pure water is wonderful ;) Iron Bru and turkish Uludag are definitely weird! And the best soft drink anyway is either green-yasmine tea or 1st flush SFTGFOP with scottish water.
alcoholic: Kölsch beer is always nice, especially under the circumstane that can make me enjoy a coke. I also like a wide variety of other german and czeck beers plus a few dutch, french and belgian beers. English and irish beers, though a completely different kind of brew, are nice too. Red wine is great just like scotch - there I prefer Talisker, Laphroaig, Highland Park and others ... unfortunately I can only rarely afford them :(
hard drinks: Coffee is absolutely awesome, a little corrosive though ... :hahaerr: :mommy:

The absolute best drink to drink is WHISKEY!!!
Wed, 27th Feb '02, 11:54pm
As far as alcohol goes, I'm not much of a big drinker. I really dislike all wines and spirits I've tried, and I'm not all that hot on the weaker drinks either. I like sweet cider, and quite like the lagers everyone is fond of saying aren't real drinks. I tried a few stouts (Beamish and Guiness) and found them interestingly different, but they seem like a bit of an acquired taste to me. Generally I prefer soft drinks, which are what this topic is about anyway. I go for Irn-Bru and a variety of lemonade type drinks - I don't really have the subtlety of taste to tell different brands of the same kind of drink apart. Oh, and also tea. I don't go in for fancy stuff - I have no taste- Tetley teabags do me just fine.
The reason I don't like many alcoholic drinks is probably because I've not been drinking long. I only turned eighteen in December, and before that I was apprehensive about being caught drinking underage.
Thu, 28th Feb '02, 3:50am
Don't start now IronBeard! I started at 18 and haven't stopped yet:sosad:
Thu, 28th Feb '02, 4:08am
I prefer (non-alcoholic anyway) pepsi over anything else..but will drink pretty much any soft-drink.
Now alcoholic well...no beer, very bad taste(accidently tired it once when little--about4-5--..will never have it again). No boxed wine (another example of bad taste while younger). Scottish Whiskey is pretty good, if you dont try to down the whole bottle on the first try anyway. Im kind of suprised no one has said Crown and Coke, or some other soft-drink, that is pretty good to, also good with Mountain Dew.
/me begins to wonder about further drinking habits, considering hes only 16... :confused:
Thu, 28th Feb '02, 4:25am
I had a friend that started drinking whiskey at that age. The first time we drank together him and I drank a bottle of Southern Comfort in 2 hours! This was my first whiskey exp at 20, and I spent the rest of the night in the toilet pukeing nothing(DRY HEEVES). He was fine and dealt with my mother who was looking for me at 4 in the morning.He's been dead for a few years now from a DUI Accident:angel:
Thu, 28th Feb '02, 7:32am
Well, I forgot to mention tea as well, but I am a bit choosy when it comes to tea :)
I especially love green tea, with a hint of mint, withh lots of sugar. And never milk. Never.
Starting drinking, as in alcoholic beverages, before you're legal is pretty easy. I mean, I've been able to buy my own drinks in a bar since I was 14, and, actually, when I was 12, I bought a bottle of Koskenkorva, which is defined as "hard stuff", for my cousin from a liquor store...
Drinking is okay, when one keeps common sense in the game. :)
(Skipping lessons.... I need a good kick on the head.... would give me a reason to skip more :))
Thu, 28th Feb '02, 9:08am
Well it's not as easy in the USA as it is every where else:( No wonder why we have the worst problems;)
Thu, 28th Feb '02, 6:11pm
The thing is, when you really need a nice cool beer, and you get one, there is nothing in the world that could possibily be any better except for a pint of a different beer (sometimes).

Fri, 1st Mar '02, 3:19am
Hmph. Only around 3 or 4 tea-drinkers around here. I really enjoy tea; it's quick, cheap, and healthy (I've taken to at least 3-4 cups a day). I also like plain ol' water and the occassional soft drink. I never really intend to drink liquor except a glass of wine everyone now and then.

Tea All kinds Earl Grey is best
Not much in the way of Alcohol but I do like a well aged Irish Whiskey
Soft drinks no thank you.
Coffee is a godsend.
Mon, 4th Mar '02, 12:15am
Well, I'm Chinese-American, so that's why I drink tea and everything. So you weren't far from the mark, Goddy. :)
