GuinnessMy five favorite alcoholic beverages:

  • Gin & Tonic
    I’m partial to Hendrick’s, but am happy to try other gins.
  • Budwesier
    I really like Sam Adams Light and Sam Adams Boston Lager, but Budweiser is classic.
  • Jack & Coke
    I’m not much of a whiskey man, but nothing beats a Jack & Coke at a midnight concert in LA.
  • Joan Collins
    It’s a Tom Collins with vodka instead of gin. Technically it’s a Comrade Collines or simply a Vodka Collins, but my friend calls it a Joan because he thinks I sound very feminine when I order one.
  • Guinness
    This is by far my favorite beer.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
