Your Favourite Drink....

To watch sport - any sport.

I've narrowed it down - for footy its either guinness (if i'm out) - some kind of cheap bitter if the footys on tele, and bizarrely Leffe (the blonde one) if its cycling but only the classics.

Does wine and watching sport mix?

    Tea or water. I gave up on the alcohol and coffee a while ago.
    It used to be beer, either lager or bitter.

    Quality European lager usually.
    The only exception seems to be international rugby for some reason*.
    A (edit:- malt) nip for each penalty or conversion Scotland score. A double for a try.
    Most games are safe-ish but it can get messy. :wink:

    *Possibly due to taking a hip flask to matches.
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.
  • Guinness for the rugby. Cold Brains SA Gold for anything else or a nice Pinot Grigio :oops:

    A nice poncy Ricard and a Gauloise. Un freakin' beatable.

    Otherwise a really nice pint of local real ale (all changes dependant on where you are) and a packet of pork scratchings.

    Not Navy Rum and 40 Capstains ? Bloody froggy lover... oops, I am on the right thread ?

    Quick backpedal (no pun intended)..

    One has a shot of Dimple Haig or Drambui with Smoked Salmon Canapes of gently fried Mongolian woodlice gums pickled in Black Label Smirnoff topped with Nightingale nipple juice drizzled with extra virgin.

    No because that's what people in the Navy do and they all take it up the bum. Nothing worse than a sailor apart from a censored hat - and at least they don't take it up the bum like Navy boys do.

    Babysham. Never out of place.

    Might work with cricket. At least I assume that's why you get so many camera shots late in a days play of middle-aged men asleep under their panama hats. I think you can still take hampers into the ground with your own supplies too unless that's another tradition that's been trashed by miserable officialdom.

    I like a Heineken or German pilsner with my football and real ale with my rugby. Haven't tried drinking with cycling on yet, that would mean a mid-afternoon start and I've lousy discipline once I get the taste for it...I'd be trashed far too early.

    What about being influenced by other things you are watching? I've been a bourbon fan for a while with a modest collection and once made the mistake of watching all 3 Deadwood series pretty much back to back over a few weeks..I was reaching for a drink everytime I saw someone on screen have some, that was a rough time!

    Trashed by miserable officialdom now I'm afraid, at least for the internationals. County games are ok. At the internationals they don't check too hard though so a flask with wine in is usually overlooked.

    Used to be Castle lager from S Africa but can't find it any more.
