I'm starting up a new ladder season after a multi-year sabbatical. It didn't take long to settle into the old hotkeys and subroutines, but it has taken longer to find the right drink. It used to be that, as a younger player, I would just drink whatever beer was left in the fridge (early 2000s). Miscellaneous beers, fruit-flavoured malts (ick), occasionally some chilled vodka. When I started playing HC (late 2000s), I would drink mostly Rum & Coke (especially when playing as a bear; dark beers for the 'zon). Now, I'm not sure how to approach it. That's not to say I need to have a drink when playing, but some nights its nice to party-up with a potent elixir. I tried cider the other night, but it just didn't feel right. So here's my question: how have you refined your drink/play style? Have you always stuck to one tried and true friend? Or do you like to mix it up? Do you have a different drink depending on the character you play? I would think that those people who stick to the same builds probably stick to the same drinks - anyone have a better theory?
