What's your usual poison?

What do you most often drink?

I like to have a bottle of Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve lager with dinner. It's very cheap, here in the city where it's made, and pretty decent, at least in the hot summer months.

Usually cheap Finnish beer, but as of late I've been cutting that down due to stomach problems. Occasionally I intoxicate myself with either Red Label or Grant's. Being a Finn I do drink a lot of coffee, but I've been cutting that down too.

When I read the title of this, the first thing that came to mind was Arsenic.

About 7 liters of just water during the day, occasionally orange juice with the lunch. For alcoholic beverages I drink dark unfiltered beer, usually Goldstar brand, but sometimes I'm having a Kozel, Leff or Murphys. Recently I've discovered non-alcoholic beer, Lithuanian origin, that really does taste like beer, slightly more bitter, and I think I'm switching to that.
For alcoholic beers, pint or two max at the evening is my quota.

Chocoberry! Chocoberry! Chocoberry! It's a simple invention of mine, just mix Strawberry Milk with Chocolate Milk, or get milk and put chocolate and strawberry syrup. If you put in just the right amount of each, it's sooo delicious.

But I've mainly been drinking water, with the occasional apple juice.

But I've never drunken wine, it's illegal at my age. Beer tastes horrible in my opinion, even though I've in total not even had two sips.

I seldom drink alcohol during the week. During the weekend, we'll usually have wine with dinner. We try to vary the wines we try a lot, and we have this little book where we write down the wine, the food and when we had it to keep track. If I had to choose any wines, I'd say something in the Torres or Jacobs Creek family, which provides fair and consistent quality at a fair price IMO.

If I'm on my own in the weekend, I'll generally have a beer. A few towns over from where I'm at there's a local brewery called Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri. they make a lot of local tasty beers, though it's a bit of a drive to get them. If I can't be bothered I drink some other ale or stout. In bar's I'll generally go for Guiness or some Ale.

I rarely drink strong stuff, but when I do it's mostly Whisky. My favourite is probably Balvenie, they make one that is stored in Sherry casks for a while giving it a nicely different taste. Or something smoky like Black Grouse. But I'm not picky, although I don't like American rat poison "Whiskey".

I can't even remember the last time I drank American Whiskey.

Lots and lots of coffee, French Vanilla and Irish Cream being my favorites.

A glass or two of untampered-with milk, and plenty of water throughout the day. If we have fizzy drinks around, I'll have those too, usually a supermarket's own brand coke or lemonade.
