Sailor Jerry is the tits! I went to Ralphs the other day and picked up a HUGE bottle of it. I gave it to my friend last Friday as a housewarming present. It is currently 1/4 full.

Another favorite that I used to have is a white russian with vanilla vodka. But I haven't had one since last frozen fury as I was drinking them nonstop for 16 hours straight. At one point, I had a double gulp cup full of vanilla russian. Needless to say, I ran into some trouble that Tonga and Hatter had to bail me out of.
Red Bull or
Mountain Dew or
Can't go wrong there.
Yes it is 2/3 OJ... as tradition among my friends has it you are supposed to layer it so the 1/3 cranberry goes in between the 2/3 of OJ. Since you mix it together I doubt it matters, but we've always mixed it that way.

As you can probably tell with those three drink selections, alcohol and lime is a winning combination in my book.
And Vodka and Red Bull
The proviso with any of these is that they be well made (encountered plenty of lousy ones over the years):
Margarita (on the rocks, generally) A local restaurant has a raspberry version (puree added) which was so good 24diving and I had the restaurant provide the food and drinks for our wedding reception.
Mai Tai Tropical fruits & rum - a winning combination.
Long Island Iced Tea A real quencher when made well, can be ghastly when botched...
But they can vary greatly, so a good one is amazingly good, and a not so good one is... less good.
I will only drink a mojito if it is made from Havana Club. Since that is illegal around these parts, I guess I am SOL.
