Just curious: what's your favorite cocktail(s)?

For me, I think it's got to be the Long Island Iced Tea. ^_^ There's just something about the complexity of flavor that results that leaves it so desirable.

The mix I'm using today:

Equal measures of:
- basic white rum (Morrison's, in this case)
- London gin (same)
- Curaçao (don't skimp here - Gabriel Boudier's is superb, from Waitrose)
- tequila (here, Aqua Riva reposado - you want a fairly up-front one, not something superbly mellow like Patrón Silver)
- vodka (in this case, Chase, but pretty much anything will do)

Add a shake of lemon juice, ice, and a good dash of cheap diet cola. Yum!
*grin* There is that. =:) Indeed, it's so easy to make something like a strawberry/banana smoothie into something quite potent, without it seeming so. For me, though, there's got to be fair warning - maybe tequila, say, to provide that.. "stopgap"? An anchoring point, so you can feel yourself drift away gradually. =:)

It's all got to be mellow, though. Unless I'm at something like a gig, with no choice in drinks, I so enjoy being able to just chill to the ambience, and enjoy the food and drink through the evening. I'm very much a proponent of Mediterranean dining, and beyond - arrive at some point in the evening, and don't leave until the place is closing. ^_^ It's all to be enjoyed, and really, there's no hurry. ^_^
