Plus what is your favourite cocktail involving that spirit in it’s recipe

    I prefer the rum drinks because they’re usually fruity concoctions they serve in the islands–oh, paradise. My favorite drink is the pina colada or mango daqueri.

    I have to say, though, I’m a big fan of Southern Comfort w/oj and pineapple juice with a float of Galliano.

    Vodka, cause it rocks with orange juice
    in case you can’t put it together, a screw driver

    Captain morgan… Goes down easy and actually TASTES good…

  • grappa

    Vodka and diet coke. My fave used to be vodka and cranberry but that is sometimes hard to get at pubs near me.

  • Parrothead

    Vodka, it doesn’t have much flavor so it is good to mix with other things and not taste it.

    Vodka because it can practically be mixed with anything. It does not send off a Strong smell (as apposed to bourbon), and you are less likely to vomit if you happen to have 1 too many.

  • PAUL G

    Gin – for the desired effect

  • Nikki Romero

    i prefer vodka because its really good with redbull or sprite. my drink though is long island iced tea

  • Vodka because I don’t like Rum.

    VODKA – you can mix it with more than just coke. Go the fizzys/ juice/ other alcohol. Me?? Go the lemonade and whatever cordial is in the cupboard LOL


  • its sofiaa duhh

    vodka too.
    because i can mix stuff into it.

  • dukemack

    Rum, but not the spletch we usually see in the US. A quality aged rum, served on the rocks or neat. No mixers, fruit, umbrellas or other junk.

  • chad c

    you can keep your vodka and rum. i’ll have some whiskey.

  • Susan F

    Vodka. Great to mix or ice cold straight.

  • Gemma F

    Whiskey, just to be awkward – on it’s own

  • nathg92.praguecz

    I totally agree with Killi.

    I prefer vodka, as if doesn’t give off that repugnant odour the day after. The smell does not "stick" to you as rum does.

    Vodka can be mixed with a lot of stuff, so the combinations are endless . . .

    I quit drinking a long time ago, but when I used to, hey, I’m from Russia, so vodka was the drink of my choice. As for cocktails – I preferred to drink it pure (proper Russian style ;-). There is one cocktail, though, called "Rusty tank" or "Rusty bomber". WARNING: DON’T DRINK IT IF YOU’VE GOT HEART PROBLEMS! MAX 2 COCKTAILS PER EVENING! You’ll need 0.5l (1 pint) beer glass.
    1). Throw a LOT of ice;
    2). Put espresso in (that’s why we need a lot of ice – to cool it down);
    3). 50g of vodka;
    4). 1 "Red bull".
