Sure, "best" is meaningless without qualification and completrly subjective. I love it in a Negroni or perfect Rob Roy (with dry NP and Macallan 10YO sherry oak). What made it "best" is the fact it was ice cold in a glass right in front of me :)
Filtered H2O... I'm at work and drinking is "frowned upon in this establishment".
Tonight I'll probably have a glass of inexpensive Cabernet or a glass of my favorite sipping wine:
20XX Adolph Müller Piesporter Michelsberg Riesling Spätlese. It's not too sweet and has a subtle apple/citrus tongue. It's also low in alcohol, about 11% I think.
