Right now, American iced tea (not the stuff from a can like we have here) and mint julips. Mmm. I suddenly have a craving for a mint julip. I can hide it in my coffee cup.

Same things as when I'm at home.....water, diet coke, V8. When I go out I enjoy Bailey's, Guinness or Goldshlagger (sp?). I also enjoy a good Dacquari now and again.

Quoting Raven

fresh juice on warm days, still water when walking, wine with food, beers in the evening

I agree with it all Raven......Mtlchica, is the Guinness good in Canada? Its definitely a lot better in Ireland than it is here in London but i've got used to the bitter metallic taste (nice). The thing about Guinness is not that it doesn't travel well but that it doesnt sit well, so if its very popular in a certain pub it will taste a lot better than if the keg has been hooked up for a few days. The cost of Guinness is wild too, i paid the equivalent of £5.50 for a pint of it on the Place de la Republique in Paris and it was almost stale, whereas you can buy it in mediums in Johnny McHales in Castlebar, Co. Mayo for around £1.60 and it's heaven on earth. Thirsty now......

Favourite drink is beer. Always beer, regardless of where i am. Admittedly drink more water when travelling, but not neccessarily bottled and rarely to try it out.

I'm a Guinness fan and do try it out around the world out of curiosity (as Joe says the taste - and price - varies wildly). Now have deja vu about a long discussion/thread on here about Guinness around the world, but can't be bothered to check.

I always try out the local beers when i'm somewhere, and i try and at least have one local spirit, even if picked at random from a list, just to be cultural. Any otehr specialities (i.e. odd fruit juices etc) are always worth a go as well.

"Stilles Wasser, bitteschön!!" .. Ach, never know how hard it can be to get non fizzy water in some place! In Germany and Argentina most people drink fizzy water all the time!... It's hard not to burp when you are not used to it!! haha
