"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)." Erik Keilholtz

Mr P: I'm sticking with Black Velvet--not champagne and stout, but the Canadian Whiskey that inhabits the lower shelf of our local emporium; for all its humble origins has never played me false.
Andrew Cusack: It's champagne for me.
Steve M: Club soda for me, alas.
Erik Keilholtz: Either gin martinis (redundant - there is not such thing as a non-gin martini) or Manhattans, same as any other morning.
Basil Seal: The Vesper, of course.
Sven in Colorado: Bushmills with just enough branch water to "release the demons." I'll wash it down with a pint o' Black and Tan (Guinness and Fat Tire).
Amy in NH: Dark n Stormy. Husband recently home from the Caribbean with an assortment of my favorite dark rums.
Joel in Alaska: For me? Alaska Amber pulled from the back deck and served just before it slushes, two at a time in a tall plastic cup from Wal-Mart. You Betcha!
The Irish Elk is thinking maybe Powers Gold Label chased with Harpoon IPA.
What are you having?
Old Dominion Tory: Last night, as soon as I arrived home from my day's labors as the Chief Officer of Election at the Highland Belle precinct, I poured myself a large bourbon (Woodford Reserve), not only because I needed refreshment and reinvigoration (I had been awake since about 0315 because I needed to be at the polls at 0500), but also because, based on my precinct's results, I knew that Senator Obama would win Virginia. For the ODT traditional Election Night fare of steak, baked potato, and Caesar salad, Mrs. Tory and I drank 2005 Phantom from Bogle Vineyards). I followed that with a few hours of political coverage and several large brandies.
