There was this drink called Tempest available for a short duration (price and lack of takers must have killed it), which was an Apple Cider beer. It was priced around 65 bucks for a 330ml bottle at a store. It was delicious and packed a wallop. I've only had it during this one trip to Goa, never saw it again

My favorite drinks (in order of preference) are:

1. Beer - Prefer draught beer. If not available I make do with bottled beer (sic!). Brands i enjoy - KF, Heinekken, Amstel, Millers, Coors, Bud, Corona, Kronenbourg, Guinness, etc.

2. Vodka - Romanov, Smirnoff, Shark Tooth, Fuel, Absolut.

3. Whisky - Signature is the only one I've tried (with sprite / pepsi) and i like it. Very smooth.

4. Wine & Champagne - For special occasions.

There was this one time, driving with my friends, when we stopped at a Sugarcane farm and the farmer churning out fresh juice. Pulled out a bottle of Bacardi, and had it with fresh sugarcane juice with a twist of lime and ginger. Rocket fuel boss!

Hi

I fell in love with cider during my five year stay in UK. Cider is the first choice for quite alot of people their. When i came back to India (Delhi) i did try to check its avaliability, but my efforts went in vain. But seriously dude cider is so so refreshing in summers.

My favourite drink is KF strong and Heineken.

I like Bacardi Limon and Smirnoff in hard drinks!! I usually have it with Sprite. Tried Vodka with tender coconut water in Trivandrum. Was amazing!!!

You can get ciders in Himachal - especially apple ciders. They are yummy. Nothing compares to a draught beer though.cheers:
