Pick Your Potion

Captain Picard was into Earl Grey tea; mention the Dude and we think: White Russians. What’s your signature beverage — and how did it achieve that status?

And Captain Janeway’s was coffee while James Bond had his vodka martinis. Me? I too like vodkas and my poison is vodka and Sprite on the rocks.

How did it happen? Simple. When I first started drinking, after beer I ventured into rum & coke in my 20s. Well I actually first had it when I was 19 but started more into it in my early 20s. Rum was cheap and it was popular and everyone was drinking it. Well, whoever was into his scotch or brandy. So I drank a lot of Old Monk from age 21 till 28.

When I was about 27 I happened to try some vodka and liked it but it was almost a year later when I settled on vodka and 7up and then Sprite on the rocks as my drink of choice. I would get some at the bar/restaurant below my offices that I worked at the time and order some beef and fried rice on certain nights. It was awesome. Every bar I went to I ordered vodka. I started buying vodka to keep at home as the bars have all closed down due to the ban in effect by our stupid previous state government.

Vodka & Sprite – everyone who knows me well knows that it’s my drink.
