I like the taste of Frangelico, and have been known to carry an Airplane size bottle
of it now and then :) Everclear is not sold in My state, but when i have it, sometime I carry it
as a Stove fuel, and a beverage. It mixes well with powdered gaterade and water. Vodka does too. :)

Last year, St. Patties day was on a Saturday. There is also a local mountain called GREEN mountain.

So, I did a Green on Green hike. Brought a cake and something to add to the hot chocolate. :)

I usually take a pint of Jack or Jim and mix it with some Crystal Light Lemonade. Not a bad Whiskey Sour around the ol' campfire. ;)

I can't and do not drink much because I am a diabetic. However, I do enjoy good Tequila. That is to say, good tequila is generally made in Mexico and doesn't involve the label "Jose' Cuervo" :)

Usually I take an 8 ounce bottle like my fuel bottles with some Sauza Hornitos and a little Margaritaville Mango margarita mix. Just enough to enjoy after dinner. In the wintertime, it's Dr. McGillicuddy's Spearment Schnapps with Hot Chocolate.

Do they still include the worm with the tequila? I ate one once when I was in Monterey CA. That's all I remember about that!!!! :mrgreen:

Most Tequilas wont have a worm. Mescal on the other hand usually does. There's a difference between the two. On the worm subject, I ate several of them along with many shots once when I was mcuh younger. I woke up next to a plump senorita' and that's all I know about that... lol
