    I’d go for a nice premium drink, the Hemmingway Daiquiri. Its a nice little obscure drink that can attract attention and has a wonderful flavor.

  • Jimgotkp January 22, 2012, 10:54 pm

    Nothing can get better than a well made Long Island Iced Tea. What can beat a drink that is pretty much a mixture of different alcohols and a dash of Coke? (No, I’m not referring to that white powder) :P

  • The Points Guy (via Twitter) January 23, 2012, 7:29 am

    I’ll take a Makers on the rocks!

  • Will Run For Miles (via Twitter) January 23, 2012, 7:30 am

    Manhattan, martini, jack & ginger or wine- but not all together!

  • Paul January 23, 2012, 8:07 am

    I’d have the national drink of my current country of residence – a pisco sour (catedral, of course!). Yes, it’s also the national drink of Peru, which is where the conversation can get lively (especially between a Chilean and a Peruvian – if you’ve got one of each at happy hour bring the subject up, sit back and enjoy the show).

  • Paul January 23, 2012, 8:16 am

    And to TelevisionTdTina (remember, you asked):

    “Nice poop deck on ya, lady. Care for a swabbin’?”

    “I must be huntin’ treasure, ’cause I’m diggin’ yer chest!”

    And since you prefer rum…
    “Yo, ho ho! How ’bouts a bottle of rum?”

  • The Weekly Flyer January 23, 2012, 10:29 am

    Ahoy! Aye pictures be great.

    I’ll post an update this afternoon. Keep them coming….

  • NYCAdventurer January 23, 2012, 12:54 pm

    Straight to the liquid cocaine. Don’t worry, liquid cocaine will not get you in trouble at the airport unless you have more than 3ozs in your carry on.
    Drink consists of 151, Goldschlagger, and Jagermeister. Who is ready to party?

  • TelevisionTdTina January 23, 2012, 3:47 pm

    Nice, Paul.

    As a winch… My favorite pickup line to a pirate is: C’mon, Lad, shiver me timbers!

  • legalalien January 23, 2012, 6:34 pm

    I would try an Absinthe drink, if the bar serves it; either Atomic Bomb (http://bit.ly/xI45XR) or Catherine Zeta-Jones (http://bit.ly/xcOydW). For all other occasions, Knob Creek or Booker’s neat will do.

  • aadvantagegeek January 24, 2012, 12:24 am

    I don’t know that it’s a great conversation starter, but to me scotch has always been a lot like ginger ale in that it taste better at 30,000 feet than it does on the ground.

    Back in my Delta days, Dewar’s was my jet fuel.

    Woolworth Flip: buffalo trace bourbon, Cynar, Carpano Antica. Root Beer Bitters, shaken with an egg

  • Pat January 24, 2012, 3:52 am

    Since I have Randy’s seat on the OWMD and am playing the part of the Boss, the only answer would be Tequila! I’ll take mine in the form of a margarita, on the rocks, please.

  • Rebecca January 24, 2012, 8:02 am

    My favorite drink at a happy hour is a chilled vodka gimlet, especially on a warm summer night! It’s so old school that everyone asks me what’s in it which is a great conversation starter!

  • DFWSkylink January 24, 2012, 11:04 am

    Well there are so many to choose from. I have to say for an anytime drink, there is always Champagne! Nothing beats a bottle with friends (especially when on a Mileage Run to HKG) http://drinks.seemyweb.net/IMG-20111127-00217-thumb-90.jpg

    However… the cucumber gimlet is one of my favorites. And if you have the right bartender it can even look amazing too! Just the right amount of cucumber flavor in a vodka gimlet and smile http://drinks.seemyweb.net/Northeast-20111230-00268-90-thumb.jpg

  • carwag25 January 24, 2012, 11:47 am

    One of my favorite drinks is an oldie but goodie Grasshopper. It is such a classic that it is hard to find bartenders who know how to make it!

  • Lisa January 24, 2012, 1:29 pm

    Can us non-alcoholic drinkers have a chance? How about a diet Coke on the rocks!

  • alfagirl January 24, 2012, 6:19 pm

    I would order a Scorpion and insist that it come in the giant shell or coconut monkey (a la Trader Vic’s) and a little umbrella….

  • Susan January 24, 2012, 6:32 pm

    Have to get to my desktop, but it would be the pomegranate mojito that I had at The Common Ground Garden Cafe in Kaua’i I. December. Yum yum.
    Glad you will be enjoying OWMD…. I was the one who dropped out making your seat possible ;)

  • Dan January 24, 2012, 7:56 pm

    I thought long and hard about this.
    Blend rum, pineapple juice, and vanilla ice cream in a blender. You’ll never know what hit you!!

  • Tricia January 24, 2012, 9:34 pm

    Classic italian, Campari and soda with an orange twist. Swanky!

  • worldtraveller2 January 24, 2012, 10:25 pm

    I would love to start my happy hour with a Pisco Sour and start the debate of national origin of the drink: Chile or Peru?!

  • Parag January 25, 2012, 1:35 pm

    Gin & Juice.
