And you're not flying early in the morning, are you? (not serious).
I just had a horrible experience. My Scotch of choice is Chivas, but at the user-friendly end of the market, I enjoy J&B. I had just poured a relatively generous nip, with a dash of what I thought was dry ginger, only to discover that it was, in fact, creaming soda. Let me tell you, it's not a good taste, and it won't catch on.
But I've never been guilty of throwing away a drink in anger, so I drank it. Fairly quickly! What does that say about me?
But when things go as they should, apart from Chivas and J&B, I like most good Australian wines, love a G&T in summer, and am never ashamed to down a good beer - but there are too many nice ones to mention. In fact, almost anything without an umbrella, and that isn't colored blue is OK by me!
