    I've always considered myself a Bourbon man, but recently I've become an Irish whiskey fan. Particularly, the higher end Bushmill's (1608, 16 year, Black Bush) and Jameson's. Those are always enjoyed neat or with a half cube of ice, of course.

    But tonight, I'm cocktailing it. I pulled out the old recipe book and fixed myself my favorite mixed cocktail -- an Old Fashioned. Classy, simple, easy to make, still tastes like the predominant ingredient, Bourbon.

    Here's how it's made:

    Burbon Old Fashioned

    3 ounces Bourbon (I'm using Knob Creek)
    1 tsp sugar
    1 tsp water
    2 dashes bitters

    Muddle the sugar and water, so the sugar dissolves. I use warm water to dissolve the sugar. Mix the other ingredients over a couple ice cubes in a whiskey glass or with crushed ice in a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist or a slice of orange.

    Next up, I'll throw together a Manhattan and report back.

    What's your favorite drink? Post it and the recipe.

    Just not a Jack fan. Too rough for me. It has its place in liquor lore, but I just don't like it.

    Beer ... and I don't care if it's expensive or cheap. I just like beer.

    although, the fridge is empty and I'm thinking when I get home a nice little mixture of East Tennessee's finest and some grape juice -- both homemade.

    The Macallan, usually 12-year-old because that's about all I can afford. Although I had a 20-year-old one in the Bellagio back in 2005. Neat or with just a few rocks. I'll have to hit the lottery to every afford a glass of the 64-year-old Macallan; for what a bottle would cost, I could damn near buy a small house.

    Beer: Prefer the smaller breweries in the Pacific Northwest (Full Sail, Bridgeport and Rogue are favorites). But Boulevard in K.C. and Schlafly in the Lou put out some good beers, too.

    My favorite shot is the West Nile Virus (What up, Seattle outing??!!). It's supposed to be one part creme de menthe, one part jager and one part Bailey's. I usually do 1/2 part Jager because it's too strong Jagery-tasting otherwise.

    Favorite beer, common: Abita Purple Haze
    Favorite beer, local: Sweetwater Blue
    Favorite beer, swill: Bud

    Favorite mixed drink: Vodka Collins or a bellini. Mmmm bellini.

    Favorite martini: Cotton candy.

    I've developed an appreciation for bourbon in the past few years. I like Maker's. I also enjoy an old fashioned from time to time and sometimes if I'm not in the mood to go neat or on the rocks I'll throw a couple splashes of ginger ale in there.

    I also like Canadian whiskey. I'd probably go with Canadian Club over Crown.

    A highball. Tullamore Dew and Schweppes.

    Lately I've been enjoying scotch on the rocks. Usually just Johnny Walker red.

    I've really taken an affinity for an Arnold Palmer this summer, too.
