Definatly. While rolling down the street, smokin' endo. (With all due regards to Snoop.)

Personally, I tend to think a screwdriver is a waste of perfectly good orange juice and perfectly good vodka. I have never had one I liked. Too much water involved. I used to make a modified version with vodka, orange juice concentrate (that's FCOJ for you commodities types) and tonic water. It was pretty good, if a bit girly. I wouldn't use good vodka to do it though.

Oh, by all means j.  Its perfect for crappy college parties when they have cheap vodka and you don't want to drink it straight up.  If you use good OJ, mix it your self with less water, or just use concentrate as you've suggested, you're in good shape.   Lets not forget that Samuel L. Jackson in "Jackie Brown" only drank Screwdrivers.  I don't think I'd go up to him and say he was drinking a girly drink. *edit* Just realized that the threads I was most active in ever are this one, about drinking, and the one about hot chicks. God, I'm a loser...

a very good beer, next to a very good burbon. wicked pete and makers mark will do in a pinch.
My man, a good bourbon or even better yet, a fine Irish Whiskey, try finding a bottle of Middleton Very Rare, quite enjoyable, straight or on a cube of ice, but do not water it down with more than one.

I totally agree with you Ambulence Chaser except in one case- The Screwdriver.  I enjoy these without worry of being a Nancy.
Try a new kind of screwdriver, it is like drinking in a different orange taste, mix with Crystal Light Orange Juice, new on the market, light zestier taste of orange, not as filling in the early morning as regular OJ.

'cause I've been doing a lot of one, but not the other

my favorite is a dry martini - at least 5:1 gin:vermouth. bombay sapphire, because it tastes good and i don't want to spend time searching for anything better. shaken. olives. occasionally a dash of angostura bitters. Bushmill with a bit of water. Oban, straight, when i'm feeling contemplative. after that runs out, any whiskey (or whisky) that's not in a plastic jug. /andrew - remembers fondly the brief run of 'Faust' beer.

interestingly, and perhaps tellingly, no one has mentioned margaritas, my all-around favorite cocktail, but only the way I make them: 2 parts Sauza 3 Generations or El Tesoro Reposada tequila 1 part Cointreau (occasionally Grand Marnier for a softer, cognac-y variation) 1 part fresh squeezed lime juice shake and pour into salt-rimmed glass w/ rocks. None of this girly sour mix or fruit juice cocktail additive. This is a drink that will make you stand up and take notice, a lovely balance of sweet (cointreau), peppery bite (tequila--and not just any tequila), tart (lime) and salt. For more straight ahead boozing, ketel one martini w/ either a twist or cocktail onion (technically the drink then becomes a gibson, I believe), or scotch up, favorites being Talisker and MacCallan's 18. For beers, my current favorites are probably Duvel and Celebrator Doppelbock.

Tres Generaciones is pretty good tequila. I'm a pretty big fan of the 1800 reposado, but I have been known to drink Patron or Don Julio from time to time, I'm very careful with tequila now though, it's a stern mistress that doesn't like to be spurned

Tequila of all types (and jagermeister, when I'm particularly dumb) are once in a while indulgences for me. I forget how much I like them, drink, then remember how much I dislike them in the morning. Been drinking Macallan, and a little Aberlour. With a little ice, keeping me nice and warm in December. I have a problem though, with my icemaker's ice being flavored with whatever I have in the freezer. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have a suggestion. Stop drinking malt whisky with ice, and take it as it should be drunk, with just a splash of water to 'cut' the whisky.

indeed; single malt on the rocks is like pairing sneakers w/ a bespoke suit. re. foul ice: do you use ice infrequently, or constantly use & refill trays (or do you have auto icemaker)? Ice will take on flavors/odors of foods stored in freezer over time, so if you use infrequently, drain and refill trays/storage bin occasionally.
