Lunchtime Poll: Booze!

It’s only Monday, and I’m sure most of us are ready for a drink. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right? ….Right?

What I reach for at the end of a long day depends on the level of angst I have bottled up in my soul. A relatively normal day with minor gripes: I’ll probably grab an ice-cold beer out of the fridge. A stressful day with lots of coworker and boss problems: An excuse for pouring myself a very large glass of South African wine (14.5% alcohol!). If I almost got fired, quit, or started out a week of 12-hour days: You’ll catch me on the couch, with a bottle of Jameson and a straw.

How about you? What do you reach for when you want a drink?

  1. Normal day, glass of red or white wine, depending on the humidity. (On those really humid Indiana Are-We-In-The-Dinosaur-Swamps days, only chilled white wine will do.)

    Long day or bad day, 2 fingers of whatever scotch I’ve got on the counter, while curled up in the corner of the couch talking to myself.

  2. It depends on the mood for me too. Beer, I tend to like either lager-types or dark/malty types, but I hate IPAs or anything to perfume-y.

    Wine, I am red wine almost all the time. South America is usually a good bet, but as far as variety, it’s usually cab savs, red blends or malbecs.

    As far as liquor goes — gin all the way. With tonic, or ginger beer/ale, or whatever else seems like a good mixer at the time. Made strong. Lime slice if you’ve got it.
