    Well, I'm three glasses into the Hi-C orange and Grey Goose and must say that it is a great drink - one of the best I've had in a while. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Life is pretty tough being a graduating senior in my last month as a student...

    I drank a LOT of Maker's Mark and Diet Coke (also regular Cokes) last year.

    Heck with that! I married a HOT :love: sugar momma. She keeps me in single malt scotches, usually 12 yr. or older (but I'm about halfway through a 10 year old Talisker in the past two weeks) - sweet perfection!

    Gosh, it's gonna suck when I have a job. Can I stay an MS4 forever?

    And risk pissing her off? No, thanks. Diaphon (if he's around) will tell you that would be a very bad idea.

    I'm mixing everything I've got left in my liquor cabnet with everything left in my refrigerator.. trying out all kinds of bizarre variations. After all, it's less to pack up for the big move!:hardy:

    Quinn prefers a plastic liter bottle of cheap scotch/vodka. He needs at least that much to get through a 12 hour shift. Otherwise, he gets all "shaky". Don't know what that's about...

    A beer called "Old Peculiar" is the true beer of kings.

    yes... yes it would... although "very bad idea" may be somewhat understating the risk...

    that said, I can indeed state that she is a "HOT sugar momma." (with all due respect to H)

    oh... and drink of choice would have to be Guinness... but none of that goofy "rocket widget" stuff in the bottles; in fact, if it's not on tap at a good Irish pub, I don't know if it's drinkable...

    then again, i've been spoiled with the good stuff they don't let off the island... (mmm.... tasty St. James Gate brewery tour...)

    Makers and Diet Coke, when I can afford it
    Old Charter and Diet Coke, when I can't
    a few cold Budweisers to end the night

    Every now and then, silver Patron shooters (chilled, lime, kosher salt)

    I'm going with a 2nd on the Guiness, and completely concur about the pub requirement. Although, a bad Guiness out of a bottle with that weird widget in there is better than a great anything else out of a bottle, or tap. On the same lines, a Murphy's Irish Stout, very similar, is as good to me.

    Also, I'm a big fan of good red wine, a California Cab or blend is unbeatable! Again, money becomes an issue and I often just look, no buy.

    Bailey's and coffee question:

    Doesn't the hot coffee distill out precious EtOH?

    (Glad to see we're applying our scientific educations to the really, really important stuff of life.)

    Grey Goose Vodka Gimlet on the rocks. Its just 3/4 vodka, 1/4 Rose's Lime and ice. After a few of these its onto shots.

    Beer: Sam Adams light or Hine. Amstel is pretty good as well. Any fresh german beer on tap smokes everything out there.

    Nothing beats a Sake Bomber every once in a while...with sushi of course.

    Gimlet = instant heartburn; too much lime

    Right on about the sake bomber/sushi combo, though.

    Dr. Coleman I concur, a thick Murphy's Stout does the trick every time.

    I suppose it might, but that's just an opportune excuse to have a second cup. :D

    Here's another vote for pub Guiness at 6 degrees C. I'll give a shout out for Murphy's also. FYI Daiphon, all Guiness beer distributed in the North America is bottled at the St. James Brewery. (Though I have no doubt that drinking it in Ireland does make it taste even better...if that's possible.) Contrary to popular knowledge though, the water used in Guiness does not come from the River Liffey. (I was deeply hurt at discovering that fact)

    Yup... St. James Gate is the mecca of Irishmen worldwide... I dunno why it was, but it really did taste better... perhaps just the gestalt of being at the actual brewery.

    slightly tangential note, why does everyone in medicine (at least my attendings thus far) use 'gestalt' freely... it's not that good of a word, so i'm starting to think it's because they don't know what else to say...

    Favorites vary, but long standing favorites:

    Saphire Gin and Tonic with extra lime
    A well made Cosmopolitin
    Paulaner Salvator (beer)
    Corsendonk brown (beer)
    a good bottle of petit syrah (red wine)

    I'm usually a beer guy too...Harpoon IPA is currently my favorite. But I've gotten into Grey Goose with Orangina lately...my buddies call it 'gina with goo. Too bad many nights in the ED have given that an entirely new meaning... ;)

    Actually, it's not. It's what Moe says after first drinking a Flaming Homer/Moe. Now, I can't say the line wasn't reused, but
