    My wife bought us some "Mad Housewife" sweet red wine and its very grape flavored and not bad. Plus it's pretty strong. I was surprised.

    What is your favorite types of wine?

    I rarely drink, but I do like a good Cabernet Sauvignon with a ribeye steak. :)

    Never had that kind. I'll have to check it out.

    We are making NY strip steaks tomorrow. Tonight I made cheeseburgers that were fire! They were super good. I go all out lol. 3" thick with sauteed mushrooms/onions/tomatoes. Wish I could have invited some black hat friends :)

    I can't feel the effects of alcohol due to a medicine I'm on so I haven't had a drink in over 6 years.

    It binds to the delta / kappa opiate receptors along with various GABA & dopamine receptors. So if I drink alcohol, it can't bind to the receptors in my brain and I just sweat it out my skin after 3-4 hours.

    Many many years ago, for my brothers bachelor party I drank 5 beers and 3 shots within 2 hours. I was dancing and just waiting for the alcohol to kick in and nothing happened. No buzz. No ego boost. No slurring. No stumbling. No happy feelings. It turned out to be very depressing. So I just sat down and ate food for most the party.

    In the winter I do enjoy a nice bottle of Gran Reserva Rioja
    In the summer I enjoy a nice glass of a perennial English favourite, Pimms
    Between both and whilst going to the football, I enjoy copious amounts of lager, Hobgoblin and Magners until my legs feel like they belong to someone else.

    We in eastern europe make our own wine. Its the best wine I have ever tried. There has to be cold winter in order for the wine to become clear and have a good taste. We grow our own grape plants and take care of it every day. Most guests from abroad think that this is strange. People here make their own alcohol and its far better than stuff that you buy form the liquor shop. Its very strong and people that cannot afford to grow their own grapes pay shitload money for it. The difference is that we drink alot of it unlike in the western countries 1 bottle is enough for 2 people. The wine usually is ready to be consumed in this part of the year. We opened our 100 liter barrel the day before yesteday and as usual after no more than 2 months it will be all gone - me and my father only.

    Sorry for the long post guys just excited to share my experience. Happy new year!

    I love a good Bordeaux but there are great wines everywhere in the world, I like to try them all: Italian, Chile, Australia, California, Washington and even Long Island. And when I'm done with the wine a good VSOP Cognac, also a grape based drink, such as Rémy Martin Cognac is a requirement. Good food without a good glass of wine is just grub to me, wine and food complement each other perfectly. Every so often I'll mix it up with a good beer but wine is the best with food! Funny thing is I can't drink wine alone.
