We've got a food thread, why not a drinks thread?
It does not necessarily have to be ALCOHOLIC drinks, juice, tea, others would be welcome as well.
Normally I always have a nive bottle of San Miguel's pale pilsen with a meal. There is just something so refreshing with the way an ice cold beer goes down so well with a wide variety of food. Regardless of whether I am having prime rib in the old Abelardo's at the Philippine Plaza (Sofitel now) or the Rotisserie of the old Manila Hilton (heaven only knows what it is now after so many name changes), or calamares en su tinta with lots of garlic at the old El Comedor in Ermita, or lobster tail sashimi at the Tempura Misono in Hyatt, or heck, even a tapsilog at the original Vivian's or pancit miki-bihon at Manosa in Binondo, nothing beats an ice cold San Miguel beer.
I try not to order those bottomless iced tea things so prevalent in restaurants now. In the first place it isn't even real tea, usually just some tea mix of some kind, lots of sugar, not enough tea, and certainly not enough real lemon. If there was one place to get good bottomless iced tea it was the Club House of the US Emabassy Seafront Club, where the tea was made with real brewed lipton tea and they provided lemon wedges and sugar syrup so you can mix to taste. This always went well with their cheeseburgers, sloppy joes, roastbeef on rye and pepperoni pizza. TGI Friday's used to serve real tea until around the year 1996 or 1997 when they resorted to the mixes. Unless I'm in en establishment that serves real brewed tea I don't order bottomless iced tea anymore.
Among the liquors my two favorites are Stolichnaya vodka and Jack Daniel's bourbon. There's nothing like a good man's drink to truly put any thing to rights.
