During their latest DC gathering visit, gothic+traci introduced me to this Lipton Green Tea with Citrus drink, which is sort of a sweetened juice with flavor of green tea.  It's pretty good and the green tea flavor mixes surprisingly well with citrus.

It got me thinking.. The main thing i drink is seltzer with fruit juice concentrate.  Basically i make seltzer with this machine i've written about before, and i keep 5 or 6 squeeze bottles in my fridge with different flavors of juice concentrate (orange, apple, cranberry, cherry, etc.).  It's nice because i can make my own flavors that are very light and not too sweet.

So this weekend i brewed a super strong cup of green tea (basically i made a green tea "concentrate" by using enough leaves for 10 normal cups) and put it into one of my squeeze bottles.  Now i can add an ounce of green tea concentrate to my sparkling juice concoction.  The result.. PURE DELICIOUSNESS!

Really, truly, a masterpiece of a daily drink.   Thmbsup

The best part is that green tea is quite healthy for you and i'm not a big fan of it as a hot tea (i much prefer black teas).

What are your favorite drinks? The more unusual the better.

Plain old run of the mill Iced Tea.  I always have my mason jar full beside my keyboard.

Close 2nd: A dark beer called "Blast Furnace" from The Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh PA.  I drive 2 and a half hours to get 2 growlers filled with it.  The smell, the individual tastes in it, the head on it...pure heaven.

Either Glenfiddich 21 year old scotch or Patron Anejo Tequilla. Very easy to drink, full bodied and deep liquors.

I had once the pleasure of tasting the contents of a one liter bottle of Old Molson's Dew single malt whiskey, introduced to me on an evening of tasting different whiskey's (amongst friends). Amazing...that bottle was also the first that was emptied that evening. That I still remember, there were quite some friends and each one brought a bottle. Wink

Plain old run of the mill Iced Tea ...

mmm ... Ice Tea.
Heavy ice, not those LARGE ice cubes, but the small ones that melt in 5 seconds in your mouth.

Growlers ... reminds me ... *excuse me as i reminisce* At my favorite watering hole (El Paso TX Jaxon's Restaurant & Brewery), they serve some a-MAZ-ing beers. Chihuahua Brown Ale was my #1 favorite. Our collection of 5 growlers at 2 liters each supplied me and my pals enough for a fun Friday night for only $10 each smiley


What's my favorite drink?
No sodas.
To wake up - fresh roasted, fresh ground coffee (i found that if i preheat my water to super-hot temps by filtering through my coffee machine and THEN a second time through the coffee grounds - it's WAY better! Wink ).
Throughout the day, high high quality H2O.
To beat the summertime heat or at restaurant - Ice Tea.
To unwind after a long day - any one of a fine selection of imported beers: Chimay Ale, Dogfish Head IPAs, db double black stout, Old Growler (Great Britain), Maredsous Belgian Abbey Ale (10,8 & 6 %alc.), Arrogant Bastard Ale, Stone IPA,  Paulaner ... mmmm ... or my classical Heineken (dark preferred).


(after reading my list, I seem like an ancoholic, but an just a connoisseur)

Hmmm...since I was born under the sign of Taurus (i.e. closet hedonist), it varies by time of day.

 
  • 6:00am-10:00am : Gevalia Stockholm Roast Coffee
  • 10:00am-7:00pm : Earl Grey or "Russian Tea"
  • 7:00pm-9:00pm : Royal Oak Pale Ale (see note)
  • 9:00pm-Midnight : Glennfiddich 21 Year Old Single Malt (although the 12, 15, and 18 are also very good). Also the occasional glass of well-aged Port if we're dining with friends.
  • Midnight-6:00am : Water. (Nothing fancy. Tap water thru a Brita filter works fine for me.)


Note: ROPA used to be brewed by UK's famous (rip and sadly defunct rip) Eldridge Pope Brewery. It has since been (successfully IMHO) resurrected by O'Hanlon's Brewing Co. Ltd. who also created its tacky new label. Fortunately, the ale inside the bottle is as good as it's ever been. Hard to find - but well worth the effort it may take to track it down. One of the world's truly great ales.

A loaf of white bread with a half gallon of chocolate milk chaser to start the day. Too many people ignore the 'refined sugar' group part of food pyramid.

Lemon tea (no milk because I'm Lactose intolerant and Soya Milk is 'orrible in Tea) - hot with a huge squeeze from a lemon from our tree!

Drinking as I type.  Wink

Our Lemons are a bright Orange colour because the tree was crossed with an Orange Tree and after being cut down past the graft due to Frost, became Loranges... Grin

I havent heard of that one -
there's a nice one available here: Moskovskaya (Russian) 'wodka' - it's got a nice little hint of marzipan in the after-taste smiley
Saw somewhere that vodka was traditionally drunk with a meal - I tried it a couple of times, and it does go very well with food. (I add a tiny bit of water and sip)
