Q: What is your favorite drink in China?

Just wondering what everyone likes to pound down while they are at the bars or at home. China doesn't really offer too much of a variety in this area so I thought I would break it down into four categories:

 

1) Beer

2) Bombs

2) Spirits

3) Cocktails

 

Mine...

 

1) Tiger Beer (if I am feeling cheap) Guiness (if I am not)

2) Jager Bombs or Irish Car Bombs

3) Goldschager or specific kinds of Baijiu (yeah it has grown on me)

4) White Russian or Bloody Mary

 

So what's your choice of drinks?

Hong cha (Fujian), Pu-erh cha (HK) mixed with different Mainland Supermarket's teas and cinnamon sticks. I drink it with a bit of milk, some 2l daily.

 

I also drink quality red wine and scotch on rare occasions.

I don't do much drinking at all.. it always fools with my digestive system the next day.  If I have too much then I have to force myself to eat for breakfast the next day...  

 

My fave drink is cocunut juice.  The kind in the black and yellow box.  Dunno why but I can't get enough of it!

Hawthorn berry juice

Ti kuan yin tea

Watson's seltzer water

 

For local booze, I guess wu liang ye liquor

FIL sometimes brings French red wine to restaurants or scary stuff in blue bottles. I don't know what it is, but it's too hardcore for me.

 

My alcohol tolerance is quite low and I feel like I need to keep my wits about me when in China.

1. Hoegaarden draught beer. Followed by Guinness.

 

2. -

 

3. -

 

4. Gin and Tonic.

 

In Australia I was a red wine / champagne person. I haven't drunk champagne in China. I usually end up drinking red wine at dinners after explaining that I don't want baijiu.

 

Btw... Judging by how you numbered the categories (1, 2, 2, 3), I guess you sampled a few beers, bombs, spirits and cocktails beforehand.

Herrljunga apple or pear cider! My import supermarket gets in it (usually). 18Y per 330ml bottle, 4.5%. So, that's what I 'drink' at home. I also have some Bailey's, Kahlua etc sitting here.

 

When I go out, I'm usually having Magners (apple), or something like Mojito, Long Island Iced Tea, etc.

 

I also like nai cha (milk tea).

 

Tea, coffee, water other times.

1) Er... not much of a beer drinker. Maybe I'd go for a Hoegarten, or Calrsburg, if anything (Beer)

2) Not a fan of bombs, probably due to the not a fan of beer thing.

2) A big fan of Tallisker 10 year old single malt, but I also really can go fo Sobieski Polish vodka, or Gameson. I love Wild Turkey 101 8 year old, but it's hard to find (Spirits).

3) Long Island Iced Tea tends to be my go-to drink, but I like a decent black Russian (Cocktails)

I'm a beer drinker (real ale) so my first years in GZ were quite barren when it came to decent beer. Not much choice so drank Tiger when in bars (their beer girls were cuter than the other big names!). Occasionally a Guinness but bloody expensive at 65/pint!

 

Fast forward a few few years and GZ now has a small but growing "craft beer" scene. My favourites include Rocky's black beauty stout and The Strands Choco brown stout. Though the Strand has also done some other superb beers including a wonderful Dark IPA.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
