Forget mic lockers...what's in your drink locker

Alcohol of choice is mostly bourbon (~$50 bottle range, nothing crazy). I only drink beer if out somewhere, which hasn't happened in almost a year.

I make my own espresso (and one for my wife) every morning ever since buying her a machine for Christmas a few years ago. It's possibly our most-used appliance in the house that isn't in a "constant on" state like a refrigerator.

I drink an absurd amount of room temperature water.

Wife and I drink about 100 bottles of pinot grigio per month during covid. Tolerance may have gotten a bit high, oops. Taking January off of booze, 12 days in feels like a year. Also two cups black coffee every morning.

Flavored beer is gross. Beer should taste like beer. I do have a thing for Leine's (grew up in MN) but we can't get Leine's original out in LA.

I guess I should have said "booze locker" lol. But yeah I do drink other things! (mostly water)

I have always felt this way and hated these fluffy fru-fru metro beers, like "Blueberry Honey Mocha Mint" wtf - but I've relaxed on that a little. :) There are exceptions that work, like somehow a good pumpkin ale works around October for me (Blue Moon makes a good one) but otherwise any "fruit beer" is absolutely gross. Beer and fruit don't mix. Sometimes one that's a little "spicy" works too.

Wow I thought all vodka drinkers were snobs and bought the expensive stuff ;)

Wine, mostly red, but sometimes white or rosé or orange if it's hot out or if I'm eating fish. And cheap, light beer during baseball season.

Australian red wine. For some reason, a pill I'm taking has taken away my taste for beer, but a light one goes toward making a batter for fish with no ish.

Last night I watched someone (Make Art Now) on YouTube drinking a good whiskey, but I know better than to do that. Knob Creek? I bet that's tasty.

I'm mostly into funky wines. I mainly drink natural and/or orange wine. It's on the more expensive side so I try to keep it down to 1 - 2 bottles a week.

Other than that we have a pretty big liquor collection for cocktails.

Dark beers are my favorite - Old Rasputin is a standard go-to, even though there are lots of better, but often seasonal ones to be found here in California. Other beers are a close second. And as backup, the rest of the beers will do.

Also a fan of gin, somehow...

I rarely drink alcohol since it makes my sleep really superficial and me tired when I wake up, which impairs my composing. I have a bottle of French cider in the fridge and some gin and 43 liquor in the cupboard but I haven't touched them in a long time. I usually drink water or Pepsi Max.

I'm not drinking much anymore, but recently it has been Johnnie Walker Black Label and Modelo (Especial, although I usually prefer Negra). I've always enjoyed Black Label as a Scotch because it is quite decent and is priced so one can actually drink it without having invested heavily in Tesla a couple years ago.

My vice is Diet Mountain Dew. It sustains me through recording sessions and other projects. I think this should be their new ad slogan: "Diet Mountain Dew. Zero calories, but we make up for it by adding more chemicals than that science kit you got for Christmas in 1978."
Same here. I had to cut back though. It was getting out of control.

Alcohol-wise, I’m a fan of Dalwhinnie on one of the rare occasions I drink. Yes, I drink it in the rocks. Don’t @ me.

Beer-wise, nothing has ever been as good as the Stiegel they served at a little Vienna cafe and beer garden in downtown Plano.
