D-programmers don't drink cocktails. They drink beer! But if you're trying to come up with a recipe for a cocktail, make sure that one of the ingredients is a Mars bar, and let's call it a Ducktail.

 Anyway, the further you get from Bud Light the better. That sort of
 stuff had me convinced for a decade that I just simply didn't like
 beer until I finally tried some proper German/Belgian ones.

Yeah, I agree. It was the same for me. Flying Dog has a very nice kind of beer, Barley Wine. It has quite high alcohol strength. There's a Swedish brewery, Nils Oscar, that has a very nice Barley Wine as well. Unfortunately these Barley Wines seem quite hard to get here. I need to special order them. They also have a beer called Ctrl Alt Delete :) http://www.nilsoscar.se/index.php/en/sortiment/ol/ctrl-alt-delete -- /Jacob Carlborg

Nooooo, not Captain Morgan. It's horrible. Captain Morgan, Bacardi and Negrita (if I recall correctly) are the three worst kinds. At least of what is common here. Havana Club is very nice standard rum. Nothing fancy, good for mixing drinks. Ron Barcelo is another good rum. Cruzan is also very nice, unfortunately I can get it here. If you want something better, for drinking as it is without mixing, kind of like with Cognac, a dark rum is best. Rum Plantation Grande Reserve Barbados is one of my favorites, very affordable. Diplomático is a bit more expensive but very nice. Mount Gay is a nice rum, both good for mixing drinks and drinking as it is. With dark rums, it nice to drink them slightly warm. Boil some water, pour it in a glass. Pour some dark rum in a Cognac glass[1], put the glass with the rum on the glass with water. The glass with the rum shouldn't touch the water, but almost. You get a completely different flavor. Very nice :) I once tried a dark rum. At first I almost thought it was whiskey, it had a very smoky flavor.

 Ahh, the "makeshit double boiler" method. I do similar for certain

 Also the ones that are best hot, which would be the lower-quality ones

 the initial aging involved in production, more time beyond that just
 degrades the quality. After six months, may as well just drink it hot.
 I think people calling "rice wine" in misleading that way. It's not
 even a wine at all, it's made from a grain, not a fruit.)

I didn't know it had a name.
 But I didn't know that about dark rum. I may try that sometime.

A small piece of dark chocolate, of high quality and a high percentage of cocoa (around 70%), is a great combination. Nice way to end a dinner.
 The ways I've had dark rum were probably mistakes: A "Dark and
 Stormy" (dark rum with ginger beer), but problem is I don't like ginger
 beer ;). And once I tried using it like a regular rum in a chilled
 fruity drink. Yea, I guess I didn't know what I was doing.

I use dark rums in fruity drinks as well but it depends which kind of rum you use. Dark rums for mixing drinks I would go with any of the first stet of rums I listed: Havana Club, Cruzan or Ron Barcelo. I guess it also depends on what kind of ginger beer you use. I sometimes mix dark rum with ginger ale, the kind that's like soda, and some freshly squeezed lime, then you get a Fidel Castro. The right rum for the right kind of drink. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Or Yuengling. Mainly German-style (although apparently Yuengling does use corn?), by a German immigrant and his descendants, made in Pennsylvania and Florida. Roughly the price of Budweiser Shitty Corn Beer, but actually worth drinking. There's certainly better "bier" out there, but not at that price point. Can only get it in a few states though, but luckily Ohio here was added a couple years ago :)

ouch!! this gives me a phantom acid reflux. Yuengling is hardly german/czech lager/pilsener style but rather appalling. the little flavor it has is mostly metallic/sour. (disclaimer: last time i tried it was in 2005.) yes, i do love my beer. being a german who lived several years in the UK and US (and currently do) i have quite an opinion on this. first thing, i had to give up the idea of finding german style beers (which is mostly pilsener and wheats). buying the stuff imported from germany does not work either, at least not for pilsener, as it is invariably stale and off* (no preservatives!), making my american friends wonder why we like our beer in the first place. so i had to think outside the box, try different styles. and indeed there are many amazing and delicious beers, especially in the US, not so many in the UK though ;) so i am quite happy now drinking IPAs** in the US and pilsener in germany. FWIW, american wheats taste very different from german wheats too, they are citric instead of banana-ry. cannot make my peace with former, but the imported wheats from germany are usually good, not stale. so i am a happy camper overall. as for american beers that resemble fresh/authentic german/czech pilsener most, i can recommend lagunitas pils, victory brewing pils, and to some degree brooklyn lager (sic! their "pilsner" sucks). but they are not quite there yet. (i suspect none of them takes the main ingredient seriously enough: water - you don't get far starting with US tap water). *quite surprisingly, some folks cannot taste if something is off and don't mind... **sierra nevada is just OK. better IPAs are dogfish head 60 minutes IPA and lagunitas IPA, just to name 2 widely available ones. and of course there are lots of great local microbrew beers as well. cheers, det

Fruity. A good blend of flavours with a unified feel. PHP: A badly made bloody mary. A complete mess. JavaScript: Sambucca. Ok in small quantities, but for gods sake don't use it as base for anything. Java: Light beer. You have to drink a lot to get anywhere, unsatisfying and falling out of fashion somewhat, but still hugely widespread. D: A well stocked, well organised drinks cabinet, with a variety of automated mixing machines. Very few glasses, some of the bottles are actually almost empty (or off) and you can't find any tools.

That sort of stuff had me convinced for a decade that I just simply didn't like beer until I finally tried some proper German/Belgian ones.

I think you mean s/suffering/enjoying/ :) But seriously though, I actually drink very rarely, and when I do it's normally just one drink because I feel "That was nice, but I don't particularly feel like any more". I just like to try stuff. It bugs me not knowing what things I hear about are like. If there's any beverage I overdo (and there is) then it's coffee. Instacoffee (though I refuse to accept it as real coffee), french press (hell, drip can be fine too), Boss Coffee (or other canned brands from Japan), fast food and gas station coffee (it's often surprisingly decent these days - Marathon and Sheetz in particular), or if I want to splurge then Panera's hazlenut or any cafe's "Half-Caf Latte with Whole Milk and Half-Shot of Vanilla" ;) And Robeks has a great (but expensive) hazlenut coffee smoothie.

Dark and Stormys definitely were not a mistake! I used to fly through Bermuda on business trips (long story) and was introduced to them there. The bartender made them with Gosling's Rum and whatever the local ginger beer was (not to be confused with ginger ale, ginger beer is spicier). I highly recommended it for those who have never tried one! Gosling's is a nice dark rum, not terribly hard on the wallet either. It's a shame the ginger beer disagreed with you, a good solution is to just use more rum to water down the ginger beer flavor a bit :). I'll have to try the dark rum warmed up sometime, it sounds like a nice Fall weather drink.

 ouch!! this gives me a phantom acid reflux. Yuengling is hardly
 german/czech lager/pilsener style but rather appalling. the little

 it was in 2005.)

Well, if you're German, then that doesn't entirely surprise me. As an American who only rarely has beer, I'm *far* from really knowing what I'm talking about ;) But for an inexpensive american beer, I found Yuengling to beat the heck out the others, or at least Yuengling's Lager anyway (I didn't really care for their Black & Tan). I mean, stuff like Bud Light is *everywhere* in the US and I find it completely undrinkable (seriously, it's *really* disgusting), but Yuengling's Lager I can actually enjoy.
 yes, i do love my beer. being a german who lived several years in the
 UK and US (and currently do) i have quite an opinion on this. first
 thing, i had to give up the idea of finding german style beers (which
 is mostly pilsener and wheats). buying the stuff imported from
 germany does not work either, at least not for pilsener, as it is
 invariably stale and off* (no preservatives!), 

I'm very curious what you think of Stella Artois. Being a Belgian beer, how does it differ from a typical true German beer? And is it noticeably different in US than in Europe (if you've tried it both places)?
 
 but the imported wheats from germany are usually good, not
 stale

I've had a couple of those, they were indeed pretty good. As for the american wheats, I've had mixed experiences with Blue Moon. There was once or twice I liked it, but other times it seemed pretty bad. I don't know why that was. Actually, I once had an imported German non-alcoholic beer. Yea, I know, I know, "non-alcoholic beer", but I'd never tried a non-alcoholic before so I was curious. And I figured "Well, if anyone can make it good, Germany probably can." It was a good guess - one of the best "beer"s I've had!
 
 as for american beers that resemble fresh/authentic german/czech
 pilsener most, i can recommend lagunitas pils, victory brewing pils,

I'll definitely have to try those.

Havana Club is very nice standard rum. Nothing fancy, good for mixing drinks. Ron Barcelo is another good rum. Cruzan is also very nice, unfortunately I can get it here. If you want something better, for drinking as it is without mixing, kind of like with Cognac, a dark rum is best. Rum Plantation Grande Reserve Barbados is one of my favorites, very affordable. Diplomático is a bit more expensive but very nice. Mount Gay is a nice rum, both good for mixing drinks and drinking as it is. With dark rums, it nice to drink them slightly warm. Boil some water, pour it in a glass. Pour some dark rum in a Cognac glass[1], put the glass with the rum on the glass with water. The glass with the rum shouldn't touch the water, but almost.

A small piece of dark chocolate, of high quality and a high percentage of cocoa (around 70%), is a great combination. Nice way to end a dinner.

I use dark rums in fruity drinks as well but it depends which kind of rum you use. Dark rums for mixing drinks I would go with any of the first stet of rums I listed: Havana Club, Cruzan or Ron Barcelo.

I have no idea what kind of dark rum it was I tried (It was at someone else's place). I think the bottle had a seal (the animal) on it.
 I guess it also depends on what kind of ginger beer you use. I
 sometimes mix dark rum with ginger ale, the kind that's like soda,
 and some freshly squeezed lime, then you get a Fidel Castro.
 

Yea, ginger ale is good. (It's also good with gin - much better than a Gin & Tonic, since I don't like tonic.) That Fidel Castro I may try sometime.
 The right rum for the right kind of drink.
 

Indeed. Ex: While I like certain Parrot Bays, they don't make for a great Rum & Coke.
