Just curious as to what people like to drink while either working on their tank or just relaxing in front of it.

noting but jack Daniels. 3 beers give me a worse hangover than a night of unknown amounts of Jack. all clear liquor destroys my head for 3 days.

i would have to agree with the scotch prefer it with coke, or a dark rum and coke (sailor jerrys) good old sj!

Well, the 75 gallon is in my youngest daughter's bedroom and the iReef is in the older daughter's bedroom so usually no drinking in front of the tanks :lol:

But otherwise I enjoy a decent darker beer. Developed a taste for Gulden Draak recently. It's a really tasty dark belgian beer. Also happens to be fairly stong at 10.5% :mrgreen:

That and a good single malt whiskey every now and then.

i have done some serious damage to my rock pile when hammered. it seems like whenever i get really torqued i get "great ideas" about how to restack the rock to make it look better.

i now have a 8 beers=dry hands rule.

There is pretty much only one alcoholic drink I like and it has a name I'm going to get bugged about, it's called a "Porn Star" It is 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur 1/2 oz Sour Puss raspberry liqueur mixed in a glass of sprite. Best drink ever IMO :mrgreen: Also tastes good with a shot of pineapple juice added.

The "porn star" is actually the shooter with no sprite added. But even better with the sprite. Another really good drink may like is a "rusty conch" It is the raspberry sourpuss with malibu, pineapple and sprite. ( I worked at a a college bar)

I'm known to partake in a number of drinks, depending on where I am and who I'm drinking with... at home, it's normally Kokanee.

Wow...this is a popular thread!

Tall, dark and dirty... dark rum and coke for me! Preferably any rum from the Caribbean. I'm as predictable as the seasons. I can even back this up with a photo or two.

This was the day that the bar went onto the aquarium...

The glass bar beside the tank has six assorted dark rum bottles...including the cool one that looks like a scuba tank.

Oh...I forgot mention that the tank itself has developed a vodka habit...although the tank likes to cut it with a bit of vinegar and sugar.

Nice job Untamed. If you like dark rum, check into a little gem called Stroh. It's from Austria of all places. I developed a taste for it while skiing in Europe, the Austrians use it to make a hot beverage called Jagatee. Very potent (80%). I could do one at lunch and go back to ski the afternoon veeery welaxed. If you dared to do two of these at lunch, forget about skiing the rest of the day, it would be extremely hazardous to yourself and most probably others.

Generally I quaff a beer when I'm tanking (reefing? aquariuming?), but I also like wine, a single malt Scotch on rare occasions and of course the odd Stroh rum. It's hard to source though, so I'm quite frugal with the Stroh.

Well speaking from experience I have to 100% agree. I never ever liked rum until I went to jamaica. Infact prior to going we picked up a bottle of appletons. After trying that I said they had better make a good beer afterall red stripe beer and jerked chicken was number 1 on the list.I drank at least a three year supply of RUM it was sinfully good the sooner you get to Jamaica the better mon!!.Red stripe or appleton for me. Hmmm... No I'm not Jamiacan n never been... Guess they just make good booze.

Interesting, whenever I go to the bar and ask for a porn star, the drink mixed with sprite is what they give me.

Wow what a turn out! I didn't put diet Pepsi or tea or cocao because the thread is called name your POISON.:biggrin: But maybe I should have added the coffee with International Delight because to me that is poison.:razz:

Untamed, your Barquarium puts mine to shame but I have to say great minds think alike.:wink:

We had one of our reefer meetings in Vancouver some time ago at a restaurant called "the Reef". It was basically Jamaican/Caribbean food....

Anyway...we sit down and instead of a wine list, they give me a rum menu... Best restaurant ever!

Ha, ha, all this talk of rum & Jamaica reminded me of a photo I've had kicking around. Did you happen to run into this guy in Jamaica advertising for Warner Bros.?

Coke Slurpee nothing better, well mix it with dark rum and it's better, every thing is better with dark rum... I found out a long time ago that Rye/Whiskey makes my hands swell up! And don't get me started with that Mexican Poison.

I can never say no to a Cesar....celery salt rimmer a must and a pickle on the side doesn't hurt either :biggrin:

But do enjoy orange juice/pineapple juice with vodka/peach schnapps and grenadine and a pineapple and cherry skewered on an umbrella. Gotta make the fishies feel at home :lol:

Ok...I like pretty drinks...:redface:
