What's in your drinks cabinet?

Recommended Posts

I just had some guys from work round for a drink and they seemed confused about the drink when asked why they said they never knew what half the stuff was - not hard since there is so little.

Crabbie ginger wine

Buckfast

Sanatogen(oh isnt that an over the counter medicine?)

Port

Mosel White Wine

Bottle of Buccaneer Whisky

The Sanatogen question is what spurred me to post this

A fortified Wine by all accounts.

"The name 'Tonic Wine' does not imply health giving or medicinal properties" o_O and to think all these years i thought it was a cure for the common cold

Haha, is the ginger wine any good? Can't say i've ever tasted that.

And Buckfast? Is there some White Lightning and a couple of cans of Kestrel in there too ;)

I can never manage to keep a drinks cabinet stocked up so I'm usually just left with half empty bottles of coke and lots of tonic.

No drink lasts the night in my house.

In my cupboard theres a few bottles of Corona, bottles of Stella, a bottle of Champagne and some Blue Curacao which is an orange liqueur. Never understood how an orange liqueur ended up blue.

I also have a bottle of chocolate red wine. But I'm not planning on drinking it (sounds disgusting)...just bought it for the nice bottle.

Theres red/white/rose wine in the wine rack in my house. And gin, vodka, Grand Marnier, Angostura Bitters, Irish Country Cream, sherry and whiskey in the drinks cabinet. And some Grenadine! Which isn't alcoholic but it is good. And it has a fish on the bottle.

It's summer, it's the holidays, so...hardly any alcohol in my house.

There's...a few beers in the fridge, several bottles of cheap Calais-bought wine, 5 litres in a keg of rose, and a bottle of 95% polish spirit that only a madman would drink.

various vodkas, (i like stolichnaya at the moment for some reason), various gins, a bottle of famous grouse for pissed guests who are too drunk to care, bottle of white bacardi, braastadt vsop brandy (so drinkable it's almost gone), a decent single malt at all times, bottle of linie aquavit, aalborg porse and dild aquavits, yeni raki, sherry, port, baileys, tia maria, angostura bitters and a scary selection of liqueurs mostly given to me by people which include things like vedrenne supercassis and some wierd shit from portugal that tastes of almonds. I usually have tonic, soda and something like coke or ginger beer in the fridge along with a selection of good continental beers, and have an out of control bed of mint outside so I've been drinking mojitos a lot lately.
