    OK, I have a question for you A.S.

    I read a lot, and in some of the books they have a "bourbon and branch water"

    What the heck is branch water? Is it something southerners call plain water?

    Thanks!

    Never heard of it. I like my bourbon straight.

    But yeah, according to wiki, you've pretty much got it right:

    • Water from a stream (a term primarily used in the southern United States)
    • Addition of plain water rather than soda water to a mixed drink (for example, "Bourbon and branch" refers to Bourbon whiskey with plain water)
    • When a whisky is ‘cut’ (i.e. watered down) prior to bottling, the water that is used is very important to the final product. The preferred source of water is called ’branch water’. Branch water comes directly from the stream that the distillery is built on...

    Overwhelmingly, mostly I drink coffee.

    As far as beverages alcoholic? beer is king

    I like fruit drinks and tomato juice more than soda, although I'm drinking more soda now because it's so much cheaper than fruit drinks.

    Those choices all suck. What happened to Long Islands, Southern & 7's, etc? If you're going to waste time in a bar, then DRINK something.

    editec, have you been on the thread that tells how much sugar is in soda and fruit juice yet?

    I do love V8.



    (Add some Stoli and a dash of hot sauce to the V8 and you have yourself a fun little drink! ;) }
