    Fuck anybody for suggesting that Jack and Coke is an acceptable option. Buffalo Trace and Coke is acceptable. Bulleit and Coke is acceptable. Really anything worth a damn is acceptable. Jack is fucking worthless.

    Manhattan's are great if you like vermouth and martini glasses. I'm not a huge fan of either.

    Of the list, I'm much more likely to go with a good old fashioned. They are solid if done right ... terrible if done wrong.

    I'm generally good with Whiskey Sours if you remove the egg whites ... eggs aren't my general favorite.

    I'm largely out when it comes to ginger beer ... it's just something that over time I've gradually moved away from.

    And for those wondering, my new whiskey of choice outside of the Buffalo Trace and Bulleit realm is Clyde Mays ... fucking outstanding.

    Also, if you can find it, Blanton's is the shit. Pappy Van Winkle is life changing.

    Jack and Coke is synonymous with whiskey and coke. Yes, Jack is shit and the others you mention are better but it’s the same idea.

    Blanton’s is amazing and I’ve gone through many gallons of it over the years. Never had Pappy yet.

    I do like Hot Toddys when I’m sick, and Mint Juleps in the Summer, but Manhattans win narrowly over an Old Fashioned (which I actually make more with brandy because of all my Wisconsin relatives).

    Thanks for the tip on the Penicillin cocktail @Dennis_DeYoung. I’ll give it a try.

    My Manhattans are mostly whisky, very little vermouth. Lots o ango bitters, the most expensive cherries I can find.

    They aka Panty Droppers. Chicks dig them.

    I like about 3 to 1 on whiskey to vermouth. Ango bitters for #metoo.

    I suggest we find a place w Pappy’s and discuss what other BS bracket we can come up with ...

    Drinks like Jack and Coke win out through Stockholm syndrome.

    Yeah, they are fucking awful but you have them so much during fun times you’re convinced that they are good on some level.

    Whiskey and soda is a go to for me at shitty bars (I love brandy and soda too; that gets everyone tight when you order it for some reason - people are like ‘what kind of fucking psycho orders a brandy and soda?’ - you want a weird reaction, try that shit at some busy bar... 70% of the time they will report you to security) - but it’s just like banging 2s off Grindr because you’re desperate.

    They aren’t real drinks. Saying a Jack and Coke and penicillin are in the same world is like saying the lesbian janitor at Ken Junior High that let my buddy Jason Shurman finger her in 9th grade year is on the same level as Racquel Welch.

    I voted for Old Fashioned because that's what I call handjobs, and because that's what my whiskey drinking friends and wife enjoy. I think whiskey sucks dick.

    In South Africa Brandy and coke or Brandy and Sprite are the national drinks of choice. It took a while to win me over but brandy and coke will keep you up and partying. Still could never drink that much sugar very quickly so mampuru was the chaser to get a decent buzz. Even the guys working in the mines respected a guy that would sip on Mampuru. Highly recommend @Dennis_DeYoung to get and try some if you haven't already. It's very similar to moonshine but with a much smoother quality to it.

    It's 504 and Manhattan time. The vermouth is a few weeks old in the fridge, but fuck it.

    Depends on the whiskey. Neat if it's worthy, on the rocks if it's merely acceptable.
