Erin December 19th, 2012 I like bourbons and really enjoy tasting differnt brands and smaller batches & craft spirits. We make cocktails a lot at home & like new stuff to play with! Karen December 19th, 2012 For the holidays, mulled wine always wins with me. Alison December 19th, 2012 It varies depending in the time of year/my mood (this time of year is perfect for some Bailey’s on the rocks…mmmm…), but I always have rum on hand. Delicious and versatile! ;) Tanya December 19th, 2012 I like Finger Lakes wines, as well as Sauternes. chad December 19th, 2012 Maker’s mark FTW Beth December 19th, 2012 I love Pulenta’s La Flor Malbec. I visited the winery in Argentina a few years ago, and the woman who took us on the tour of the vineyard poured us a glass and said in a very spunky voice “So… How do you like my wine?” Jen Makulowich December 19th, 2012 Kim Crawford white wine! Mmm. Andrea December 19th, 2012 Big fan of Oregon wines. :) ingrid December 19th, 2012 I like the Astoria Prosecco. Stepbanie December 19th, 2012 A good Malbec is delicious with anything. Astoria Park Wine & Spirits definitely has some reasonably priced bottles Samantha December 19th, 2012 Right now I’m enjoying a variety of Spanish reds, and around the holidays put something bubbly in my glass and I’m a happy girl! Randi December 19th, 2012 I love spice rum, and spiced wine in the winter! Katie December 19th, 2012 My favorite wine: for red is Chianti, for white is Pinot Grigio. Cocktail wise I love a chocolate mint martini. :) Jeff December 19th, 2012 Favorite wine or spirit? Do we really need to limit it to just one? For warm summer days i find a Vinho Verde hits the right spot. In the winter I want a glass of Glenmorangie La Santa in my glass. Lots of other choices for other times as well. Colleen December 19th, 2012 I’ve been a huge fan of the Cupcake Vineyards wines. And I always love a good Riesling. Anna December 19th, 2012 I’m a big fan of riesling for white, malbec for reds, and mastiha liquer for harder stuff. Paul December 19th, 2012 Spanish reds are excellent value and I love to explore them. For Bourbon, Woodford Reserve. Alex December 19th, 2012 Spanish white wines are great Hailey December 19th, 2012 Pinnacle Whipped! And also Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Blanc. Chelsea December 19th, 2012 Mencia wine from Galicia, Spain! Maria Lauron-Castro December 19th, 2012 You can never go wrong with a glass of Malbec, but if you’re having a super bad day at work….a glass of scotch. Jaron December 19th, 2012 I love good, smokey Scotch! Emily R. December 19th, 2012 Reislings have always been my favorite, but I’m now starting to enjoy drier whites and some reds. It’s a process. Daniel Rios December 19th, 2012 Around the holidays, I’m a sucker for cold cold Baileys in a heavy bottom glass. Something about it says comfort to me. Otherwise, I’m a whiskey man. Alicia December 18th, 2012 I’ve been into French reds recently! Wan Hang Lee December 18th, 2012 hmmmm depends on my mood… Amanda December 18th, 2012 Chianti warms my spirit and my belly. JessL December 18th, 2012 Prosecco in my tummmmmmmmmmy! (yummy yummy) Katherine December 18th, 2012 I’ve recently been obsessed with St. Germaine Kate December 18th, 2012 For wines, I love primitivos, lately. Also, whites from South Africa. Spirits are harder to pin down. It depends on the season, but I love Hendrick’s Gin, single malt scotches from various regions (mostly Islay and Highlands, though…) and small batch bourbons. Lisa December 18th, 2012 If it’s wine, it’s gotta be red! Jay December 18th, 2012 Bourbon for me, please! Yael Maxwell December 18th, 2012 Pinot Noir and Baileys…not together of course :) Susan December 18th, 2012 Lately I’ve been all about the tempranillo. Chris December 18th, 2012 Any small batch whiskey. Jessie December 18th, 2012 pinot grigio all the way. Jill December 18th, 2012 Pinot Noir mmmmm Katie C. December 18th, 2012 I love to try new things, but varieties of red wine are usually my favorite! Steph S December 18th, 2012 A nice crisp white wine for me – but I’m not too picky! Tetsuya December 18th, 2012 I can’t get enough of Tito’s Vodka. Handmade in Texas. Quite possibly the worst designed bottle on the vodka shelf, but it’s surprisingly smooth and CHEAP! Julia December 18th, 2012 Riesling! Leslie December 18th, 2012 I’ve always been a Jack Daniel’s girl, and there’s something perfectly spicy and sweet about the whiskey that makes it delicious during the holidays. Frank December 18th, 2012 BQT starts all of its board meetings with a double-scotch and finishes them off with Irish coffees. Maggie December 18th, 2012 I love French red wine. They have a great bottle of Chateau Moulin Rouge. pipe&slippers December 18th, 2012 Can’t get enough of Tito’s Vodka. Handmade in Texas. Quite possibly the worst packaging as far as vodkas go, but it’s surprisingly smooth and CHEAP! Katie December 18th, 2012 I love anything with bubbles! Prosecco or Champagne makes even a Tuesday night a celebration! Jamie December 18th, 2012 I’m always a fan of a good Syrah. Mike S December 18th, 2012 Scotch and Malbec. Frances December 18th, 2012 I’m a big fan of beaujolais nouveau! Its seasonal right now. More Comments → Comments are closed.
