Which is the most manly drink?

A documentary on the T.V. that just finished reminded me of a long lost loved one, that I really wanted to be with. I decided to have a drink - a manly one- to appreciate what I lost and make sure that it will not be repeated (sp?).

The opions were lager, red wine, whiskey, or vodka. What would you have choosen?

No Rum?


They say a real man drinks half-pints of Atom Bomb - equal measures of rum, tequila and vodka, with a dash of tabasco and shaken not stirred.


Personally, I'd have a whiskey, but only single malt will do.

I'd say any whiskey, though a Single Malt Scotch would be my non-exclusive preference.

I agree with spirits: anything that makes kiddies screw up their mouths in disgust and takes your breath away. Whisk(e)y is good for that - puts hair on your chest.

Personally, I'm partial to Armagnac. Cognac is good, but this is better for you, and not that expensive either.

Or the missus... saves on the liquor bill... same goes for teaching your wife to shoot (for sport)

Or a good Calvados.... though for putting hair on your chest, nothing beats a good Poire Williams....

I guess all drinks translated into local tongue from 'Water of life' would qualify

i agree with birrddog - Calvados will sort the men from the boys.

Mind you, in the good old days a beaker of rum with a pinch of gunpowder had a decent repitation.

Based on all the movies a manly drink is anything that makes women and young boys cough and spit.

Tequila straight up is the 'real mans' drink, but 'gentlemen' drink Scotch!

I remember going to a pub with a mate soon after we were old enough to do so. I ordered a pint (like a real man) and he asked for a lager shandy. On my comment that he sounded a bit girly he changed his order to a white wine spritzer. Still makes me smile to this day.

Scotch every time though.

Or maybe a Vodka Martini shaken not stirred? Never had the bottle (sic) to order one though...

The manly drink has to be beer.

You can have a few and still go back for a manly hard days graft.

The rest of them, are for having while siting on your arse and afterwards you will end up being near usless at doing anything manly anyway.

What Admiral Draper said.

Those lucky few who knew TK and "Fred" will understand.

It might be an aquired taste though
