My favorite alcoholic beverage:

Woodchuck cider!

 

Sometimes I am derided for it being "girly" because it's not beer. I like some beer (OK, just the Canadian ones...I can choke down American beer).

 

Anyone that wants to call me not manly for drinking it, I challenge to a Jagermeister drinking contest! :chainsaw

A nicely written post-mortem for the late, (mostly un)lamented Zima: http://www.slate.com/id/2204596/.

 

For the uninitiated:

 

Zima debuted in the midst of the "clear craze" of the early 1990s, when products ranging from Crystal Pepsi to Mennen Crystal Clean deodorant sought to take advantage of a vogue for (literal) transparency. Coors, then the nation's No. 3 beer-maker, hopped on the bandwagon by devising a simple process for making a clear brew?just filter your lowest-grade lager through charcoal (a process that strips away both color and taste), then make the liquid palatable by adding citrusy flavorings.
