Well after being home sick for 2 days, I've been nursing myself back to health by the old fashioned way of drinking old fashioneds!

Tonight I was rummaging through my liquor cabinet and realized it's about time to stock up, I'm running low on almost everything! I really enjoy entertaining and always have a stock of any type of liquor you could want but I must have let it dwindle down! I'll list what I usually buy and would LOVE to hear recommendations on anything that I don't have or something better than what I buy! Price isn't much of a concern, life is too short to drink cheap whiskey (or liquor in general). Mind you, I don't drink 90% of what I buy, it's mainly for family and friends who come over. The two main drinks of choice for me would be Wine or Whiskey, I won't touch that Patron! Recommendations PLEASE!

Normal items I keep in stock:

Patron Anejo (Tequila)
Jose Cuervo Especial Gold (Tequila)
Grey Goose (Vodka)
Stolichnaya Gold (Vodka) -Mom's drink of choice
Bombay Sapphire (Gin)
Hennessy V.S.O.P (Cognac)
Woodford Reserve (Bourbon) -Dad's drink of choice
Captain Morgan (Rum)
Captain Morgan Private Stock (Rum)
Jack Daniel's Single Barrel (Whiskey)
Crown Royal (Whiskey)
Crown Royal Special Reserve (Whiskey) -My drink of choice
Macallan 12 Year (Scotch)
Chivas Regal 18 Year (Scotch)

Anything I need to try that beats what I currently have? I'm open to any ideas. Thanks!

You remind me of my granny. Health problems were always cured with homemade hooch of some sort. She lived til she was 99. Must have been something of merit in that "cure" of hers.

We've got a liquor cabinet, basically a gutted out old RCA-Victor Radio cabinet. Inventory: gin, vodka, cognac, brandy, rum, Campari, tequila, port, sherry, bourbon, etc. We buy the best we can, on special. Except for a few that I use in sauces so I don't need the absolute best for that.

My suggestion would be to try Tanqueray No. Ten gin if you haven't already. I don't ordinarily like the taste of gin, preferring it as a G&T but I don't mind sipping that stuff straight. Very smooth.

And a Grandfather Port is very nice for a winter after-dinner drinkie poo.

Not much of a gin drinker but I'll pick up a bottle of Tanqueray No. Ten and see if it passes the test of my friends! Thanks!

And Granny, you are more than welcome to! I love entertaining, it's one of the little joys in my life! This damn bug I caught has not been very nice to me though, I have a lot to do at work so hopefully Monday I'm back on my feet!

Schnapps, how could I forget! I always like Peachtree Schnapps but haven't bought it in a while, better get on that!

Haven't heard of some of those. What exactly are some of those?

SpeedyAZ, those are liquors that we get on SXM. Guavaberry is the "national" drink of SXM (sort of) and even though I don't think that I have ever seen a guavaberry, the coladas are sold all over the island. MaDouDou is in very decorative bottles and Rum Jumbie is in the shape of a man with a straw hat. Not sure how easy it is to get them off island with all of the security today. Take a trip to SXM and you'll always go back for more.
