Predominantly Red Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot being my favorite. My local VQA holds wine tastings every weekend and I never miss a single one.

I also enjoy a good craft beer every now and again. I like collecting the bottles.

Disregard my older post on the first page. Coffee does horrible things to my body nowadays; namely, insomnia {even if I have it in the morning} and panic attacks.

Have been to a few whisky tastings recently, trying to become part of the snob club. But while I do enjoy them, I can't detect half of the flavours that some of the other attendees can. Maybe I've got shit tastebuds.

Oh, oops... I always thought you were supposed to BS your way through by tilting your head back slightly and smacking your lips together while saying stuff like, "Ah, yes! I do believe I can distinctly taste hints of oak and vanilla . And the finish...ah! Superb! Superb I tell you! The aroma of clover honey and fruit is plainly obvious as well as divine! Simply divine!"

Never really got addicted to soft drinks for some reason, even though I really like sweet stuff. I'd usually take Coke over Pepsi though, if pushed. But in all cases it's gotta be full of real sugar; HFCS is definitely inferior and all the artificial sweeteners are totally gross.

Soft drink is one of my weak point...I try not to buy them...but my girlfriend enjoy them too, so when she comes home with a crate of coke...well, I can't really resist! I got a really weak will when things are in my fridge. If it's at the grocery I can easily pass by tho.

I used to drink Coke every single day! I've cut back very significantly and only have a few a month but only when when my wife and I pick up fast food on the weekend or something. I'll drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available, but since I don't drink soda as often, its taste seems sweeter than ever now. I've even found myself choosing iced tea or lemonade over soda these days.

I totally agree. Sugar is not a health food by any means, but high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweetners are both so bad for you!

Unless it is homemade...it's no better than a good old pop unfortunately! There are a few lemonade in supermarkets that are kinda okay...but, commercial iced tea is no different than a cola. Furthermore...it doesn't taste tea at all (and I'm a huge tea drinker).
