When you go to a liquor store, what are you wanting to buy?

Well, I never really tasted wine, liquor, or beer. I probably wouldn't like beer (stinks anyway) or liquor. Plus, I'm too young. If I were old enough, I guess I would buy wine, IF it were for a special occasion.

Wine to cook with. I've never had a wine that I really liked as a beverage. Tried a few but not impressed. Used blackberry and concord grape for stomach ailments decades ago but never acquired a taste. Back in the 60's there was a wine (cheap) called bali hi or something similar that was fruity and OK. I've been thinking about learning to make strawberry and blueberry types at home just for the sake of doing it. Next time in to shop for cooking wine I think I'll try a small bottle of Ice Wine to see if it is any good.

Nomadicus, I hope you like sweet wines, because I found the Ice Wine I had way too sweet. Ick.

I'll drink all three, not all at the same sitting, of course, but on a real hot day, I enjoy an ice cold beer or two; when it's a lazy day, a nice Canadian Club w/water or a CC Manhattan that I can sit and sip; when I feel like something a bit on the sweet side, a nice glass of rose; a special dinner calls for a nice wine; and if I'm not hungry (because it will ruin an appetite), I go for a fresh strawberry daiquiri or a plain margarita.

How's that???

Alright... at a party... I will drink what is mixed and served to me...(w/in reason)

With Pasta/fine dining I want a nice glass of wine...prefer shiraz but will drink a nice white table wine with dinner.

With Pizza/Burgers i want a good beer...

Hanging out on the deck... well, it depends on what we have and the mood at that moment... the other day it was hot and I was in the mood for a Raspberry Lemonade (Lemonade helped along with a shot of Raz Stoli)
Tonight it is Raspberry Hefeweizen UFO by Harpoon...

Ooooooooo a Raspberry Theme...
Ya never know....

The thing is there are some flavor elements in foods that aren't water soluble but are alcohol soluble, in those cases a good wine can considerably enhance your perceived taste of the food, especially when it's uncooked. I've found this especially true with some cheeses, a good wine/cheese combo at the right temp can be astoundingly more tasty than either on its own.

I'm usually buying it as a gift (wine and/or liquor). Our local ABC Store has some very knowledgable and friendly people on staff. It makes shopping easy and fun.

Yes.

Although in archaic Pennsylvania, you have to go to one store to buy wine and liquor, another to buy warm beer by the case, and yet another to get a cold sixer.
