As a Frenchman, I prefer Pastis
. Needless to say that I had a very hard time with the drinking age and dogpiss beer when I moved to the US. There's a few things I still can't stand, even after 7+ years here. The drinking age is high on my blacklist. Others include the ridiculously low speed limits, (how the **** are you supposed to drive 3000 miles cross country at 65 mph?) and the silly imperial system of measurement. (Why on earth would water freeze at 32 deg F instead of 0 deg C? How many feet in a mile? 3/16 of an inch? Give me a break!)
For champagne, my favorite alcoholic beverage, I love the good old widow, <a href="http://www.veuve-clicquot.fr

For beers, I've taken a liking to the local <a href="http://www.foggybottom.com

For hard liquor, anything with Vodka is ok by me. No headaches!
I wish I was more knowlegeable about wine. Maybe when I grow older...
