What's your favorite drink or cocktail? What's in it?

I call it The Alcoholic. Ingredients:

  • one part Gin

I kid!

Depending on the time of day, er night, the phase of the moon, and general welfare of imbimement budget, my drink of choice varies widely. When I'm feeling posh and not looking for a big night, it's a Lagavulin, neat. Typical night-out fuel is Hangar One & soda (Hangar One are out in Alameda, they have an excellent tasting room).

My wine rack is never without a bottle of Honig Sauvignon Blanc and a Robert Sinskey Pinot.

On the hop side, I favor the somewhat local brew of the Anderson Valley, in particular Boont Amber. For special occasions, my fridge stocks Saison DuPont, a Belgian farmhouse ale and a good one at that. The other Belgian, or in this case Flemish bottle that makes the cut is the Duchess.
