In true Manchurian fashion I'm a pretty heavy drinker (at least for an Asian guy).
My poison of choice is vodka with soda and lime. The lime eliminates the bitterness of the soda. And the lack of sugar means you don't dehydrate as quickly as say, a mixer with sugar.
Otherwise Scotch and Dry (Ginger Ale). This is a weird one, I don't like Ginger Ale, but god they're awesome combined together.
I can and will do any shot/shooter that doesn't include aniseed, I hate the flavour. So things like chatreuse or absinthe are out.
I generally hate milky drinks, not because they taste bad (though things like vodka mudshakes are foul), but because they stop me from drinking efficiently, since they fill you up and can make you sick/throw up if you mix and match too much.
Big fan of sparkling, both cheap and nasty ones and good ones.
Uuummm... not TOO big a fan of beer but cold crisp lager is okay, there's a few Australian brands I drink. Not too much of an ale man. And I absolutely cannot stand beer that is warm, ugh. Sorry poms.
Aaannndd...cocktails...um as I said as long as not milky or aniseed flavoured I'll be okay. Long Islands, Mojitos, all the stables are good. (Oh god except Bloody Mary, yeah that's nasty). Not a big fan of tonic water.
Straight spirits, fan of vodka, scotch. Not big on gin and rum. (Granted I've been told I've never had good rum before).
I read something interesting the other day. The reason asians are biologically less tolerant of alcohol than europeans are, because in ancient times water wasn't exactly safe to drink. As a result Europeans mainly fermented theirs into watered down wine, whilst Asians mainly boiled their water. Hence thousands of years later Asians generally speaking drink less. But this is generally obviously, alcohol tolerance can be built up with relative ease.
edit: I currently have exams (hence procrastination in the form of discovering this forum and making like 15 posts a day) but once this weekend arrives I have parties lined up all three days and by the grace of god I do plan to wake up at some point on somebody's roof and not be able to recall how I got there or the whereabouts of my shoes.
This has happened to my friend two months ago and ever since that time I've been trying to replicate it.
