When I drank I would have 3 modes:
casual drinking with friends
= Malibu Rum & Pineapple juice or the occasional strawberry or banana daquiri
on a budget
- long island ice tea (I didn't drink this for many years because I thought it contained real tea and I don't like tea)
on a mission
= straight shots of VO whiskey with a coke chaser. If no VO was available then it was Jack Daniels. Usually anywhere from a 1/2 pint to a pint would be consumed by me in an evening.
