    I quite like my cider; magners, koppaberg, strongbow and stowford are all firm favourites.
    Where are you from, out of curiosity? Basically I've found that as soon as I leave the west country, the cider selection at any pub is limited pretty much to Magners, Strongbow and fruit ciders. Pubs in Bristol won't sell Strongbow because nobody buys it - everyone thinks it tastes like piss. Meanwhile people outside the West Country (including me before I left Birmingham for uni) will happily drink Strongbow because they don't know any different.

    Im from Shropshire, just north of Shrewsbury, and those ciders are pretty much the only to be found in pubs and bars. I quite like Somersby Cider however it is nigh-on impossible to find in bars and pubs only usually in large supermarkets.

    I've never drunk due to where I grew up. Everyone at work always talks about drinking and such. I feel like a loser not knowing much about the drinking scene.

    So tell me, what are YOUR favourite drinks to have on a night out?

    90% of people drink beer. Just drink beer.

    Usually either Malibu and diet coke or vodka and lemonade although I have a friend who keeps trying to get me into jaeger bombs (I'm personally not keen) so I wind up drinking them fairly regularly too.

    The only place I've ever seen Somersby on draught was in a bar in Portugal

    I'm not a big fan of alcohol tbh, but when I fancy drinks, I have *****pop in small quantities. :laugh:

    Last night I had about a dozen shots of raspberry Sourz and felt merry and went to bed.

    It was a drinking game and I'm a lightweight And I don't like many alcohols because lots of alcohols are way too strong for me! :lol:


    The only drinks I will drink are WKD Blue, VK Blue, blue Caribbean Twist, raspberry Sourz, Koppaberg Strawberry and Lime and the red Cactus Jack's. XD Don't judge me or my manliness OK. :') Like I even care. :rolleyes: Who needs alcohol to have fun?

    Drunken Jenga was fun though. :thumbsup: I had a good sleep last night.

    That's what I have to say on that!

    EDIT: I do also remember trying a mixture called a Fat Frog which was WKD Blue, Bacardi Breezer Orange and Smirnoff together (which sounds terrible but it was bright green and super nice). Oh and Sex On The Beach is nice too, which is all kinds of mixed spirits but I didn't have much. :')

    So I've tried a good few of drinks but they're not that important tbh.

    No wonder you don't like alcohol if you only drink that revolting filth. Its like saying you don't like food because all you've tried is cold ginsters pasties.

    Well no it's not like that really is it. :rolleyes: I've tried lots and lots of different alcohols, from beers to ciders to spirits and I just find most alcohols too strong, so I just drink *****pop. :lol: I didn't say I didn't like alcohol, I just said I'm not a fan of it or a big drinker. Now go re-read my post. :rolleyes:

    I think this is a positive thing: liking weaker alcohol, or indeed drinking it a little less often, is a good thing - and good for you!

    My favourite drink and usual drink is double Morgans and Coke, but when I'm out I'll drink a bit of everything (which you shouldn't, don't mix drinks). Flavoured beers and ciders, vodka/cokes, White Russians, other cocktails, etc.

    Night out any spirit with mixer. Going to the pub or having a drink at home or something chilled like that just a pint of Cider/Beer
