I enjoy cooking with wine. Sometimes I even include it in the recipe.

LOL That looks like a couple who have forgotten what it was they went into the kitchen to do!

No, the complements to the chef seemed endless.

Alcohol and cigarettes are good for you but illegal drugs are bad, unless you have a prescription written by a doctor, then they are good for you.

In my opinion drinking before sundown in the tropics or Australian heat can be like the “mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun" thing. Like smoking that powerful pot it is likely to knock a person out for the arvo with the additional risk of a nice dose of sun stoke. I have to admit though last time I was in the tropics when at dock it wasn’t too bad an idea to have a beer around midday and take a siesta through the worst of the heat.

Oh – I am wondering if there is a recognised cocktail called a “Sundowner”. If not I am sure some of us could make some good suggestions?

Ok… Enough of this political correctness…… let’s get down to the important question:

If you choose to get inebriated… what is your weapon of choice?

For me it is an 18 year old bottle of Laphroaig whiskey... but if I am feeling particularly suicidal… I have been known to splurge for a 30 year old if available.

Sipping God’s nectar at anchor, I am happily in their hands and if something unto wards comes along … my first action is to put the bottle safely in the sink.

What is your inebriator of choice….? and what munchies do you like to accompany it with?

If you want me drunk and agressive feed me 8 pints or so of beer...
if you want me tipsy and sociable feed me a litre of Brandy or Vodka...
if you want me depressed and weepy feed me a litre of Gin...
Dunno what they put in these non UK gassy beers but whatever it is it does not agree with me... I'll have a coupla cold ones (mini's) to quench the thirst but then its either wine or spirits...
Munchies......??? Assorted Tapa's

(from above link)
"A sundowner contains 1 1/2oz Malibu Rum, 5oz Pineapple Juice and 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters."
