Personally I prefer rums, but none of the clear rums that you get out there. Mainly Captain Morgan, Kraken, Barton (terrible to shot drink, but not bad in a mixer) and a few others. I do like drinking whiskey straight actually, I feel fancy somehow with it!
Beer... I have a love/hate relationship with. Not the best tasting stuff at all, but drink about 15 of them and I'm lit. I do like me some Guinness, Blue Moon, Pyramid, Heffeweisen and a few others. I can't stand that draft stuff like Miller or Budweiser, they just suck.
