What are your favorite drinks? Does it depend on the weather?
Not associated with any survey companies. Just curious in Ozbargain community.
Really expansive Scotch with coke
Blue label JW w LA ICE
How big is your glass?
Really expansive Scotch
Really expansive Scotch
It must be quite a big bottle!
It is, hence it's so expensive. 😉
Can it be seen from the moon
I hope you don't mean that brown fizzy drink?
Otherwise, I'm with you on the coke, but add some ice.
McCallum 30 with RC cola is my drink of choice
Where do you get Royal Crown Cola in Oz?
Those premix drinks are nice, mainly because they can independently tweak the sweetness, flavour strengths and carbonation to get them just right. But they cost a ridiculous fortune. I believe they’re heavily taxed. They also have a bit of a bogan rep compared to spirit + mixer.
Ever tried petrol in a coke bottle brother?
Non alcoholic in no particular order
Ribena (pre mixed)
Golden circle golden punch (only valid if delivered via popper format)
Zacapa 23 straight up
Long Island Ice tea (mainly because you can’t beat the value)
Agree with Zacapa 23. Flor de Cana 18 is also a favourite, straight up…..no ice.
So nice to sip it on a winter night
I find the Z23 a bit too sweet but not bad at all
haha it is VERYYYYY sweet i will admit, but sometimes its nice to enjoy your drink as opposed to grimacing at every sip of a real peaty whisky for instance..
Ribena (pre mixed)
Ribena (pre mixed)
I feel this is very underappreciated.
(I used to buy the poppers. So good with a boring sandwhich at lunch)
Yes very underrated. A lot of people I tell about it totally forgot ribena is still a thing
must confess i forgot about it until i saw your post :D
I use Ribena with the sodastream
@42: I must try this.
My $29 little birdie SodaStream sitting unused atm.
@Jimothy Wongingtons: what s premix?
@capslock janitor: You can get ribena either ready to drink or as a concentrate
Have you tried the Zacapa XO?
I really like the Zacapa 23, and was considering trying the XO, but hesitating over the 2x price tag
Unfortunately I’m not part of the rich guys of ozbargain club…
Isnt long island cocktails expensive?
Depends where you go. But normally Long Island is almost same price as any other cocktail but has on average 2 more shots for the money.
Depends on the bartender though. Sometimes they will try and do half shots of each alcohol variant instead of full shots.
Used to love Zacapa. Still don't mind it but Diplomatico is a better rum.
Negronis all the way.
I have always been curious about diplomatico. Still waiting for a sick deal to take a dive on it. Current prices I’d rather stick to what I know and just go with z23.
I jumped on this deal a few months back: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/643402
I think this sort of price will become more common. Worth every cent.
@Jacked: Yeah saw that , hesitated and missed it.
Non-alcoholic: Ice cold water
Why ice water? I much prefer room temp, and after being run through a charcoal filter tastes almost sweet, which is a side point.. What's the benefit of ice cold for you?
Lychee drinks are my favourite but they’re usually packed with sugar.
What about lychee martini, so good.
Lychee Soju is my favorite.
I'll have to give this a try!
Budget friendly and nothing but nostalgia.
Usually chased with Grange.
Ive been a lawyer for twenty years and Im drinking goon right now. Nothing wrong with it as far as Im concerned.
Been an engineer for 4 years and of the same mindset
Yes you can afford better but nothing replaces goon
how to i get what this goon?

I totally forgot Soju! Soju x Sprite is so goooodddd.
Beer + Soju = somaek = fun times
i tried yakult x soju before..it must be trying to emulate makgeolli?
@Jimothy Wongingtons: milkis x soju also goes down very easily
@CommuterPolluter: Oh boy milkis. Good stuff
I've got a bottle of the Nova - it burns neat what's the deal? Do aussie whiskeys suffer from low maturation?
I would say some definitely do, as they haven't had the time to mature in barrel. The Nova is easy drinking (and their distillery is like 10 minutes away from me in Port Melbourne), though i wouldn't compare it some something with age, maybe it lacks a bit of complexity. I enjoy it regardless.
When I was in Tassie, had some lovely whisky from Lark, Sullivan's cove but those are very expensive. Hellyers road is more within my price range and do some good stuff.
We have the same taste.
Rockmelon juice on a hot summer day.
Have u tried pastis fizz
I haven’t! Sounds so good, gonna attempt it this weekend.
I tried it at restaurant Hubert and thought it was pretty awesome, nice little novelty.
Totally destroyed my insides though (lactose intolerance).

Been hard to get recently, well, until about 2 weeks ago. Think a few have it back in stock now, including the AU distys.
What are your preferred brands of English Breakfast Tea?
I like Yorkshire, Yorkshire Gold, and Dilmah Extra Strength
Usually Twinnings. Have another brand interstate, but can't remember which it is. Haven't seen that bed in months!!!!!! :(
Machi machi boba.
On a hot day, I love grabbing myself a bottle of chilled glass coke.
The flavour is just beautiful.
and 25 year old single malt scotch neat
IMO the best Sarsaparilla was Tarax Sars. Sad they don’t make it anymore.
i agree, but bundeberg one is the closest i found to that tarax taste. another close one is the schweppes one.
Vanilla coke, Pepsi Max and sunkist zero sugar
Water does just fine :)
bundaberg sarsaparilla. i would love to try some other countries versions of it, i think bundaberg makes it properly rather than just using a flavouring like most other australian manufacturers, but i'm not entirely sure.
Lemon Lime Bitters for both
Water. tap water in a voss bottle.
I don't like soft drinks but I'm fine with sports drinks (powerade) and some energy drinks (red bull, v).
