I didn't read the whole thread so forgive me if someone has already mentioned these.
Best Place: The TGI Friday's in Wichita makes a great Barbados Rum Punch. If you get a booth by the north wall you can enjoy your drink while leisurely gazing out on several large, decorative planters they have arranged to screen the Home Depot parking lot. Great way to unwind and just RELAX.
Second Best: Player's living room ... they serve fantastic mojitos. Scene-wise, though, it can be a little off-the-chain. If you're looking for a quiet place to have a drink it may not be for you.
Third Best: Back of the cab of Serbia's F250 on New Year's Eve flying down the M-1 at 130kph in the wrong lane ... you can usually find a couple halfsies of Coors and can mix that up with whatever kinda liquor is in the flask that's rolling around under the back seat.
Back in aught-one, I spent a few nights in a hotel on the quiet side of Corfu. The bar there had the best mixed drinks I've ever had. Almost purely booze, but tasted like candy. I can remember the name of the hotel, nor any of the drinks, but hot damn it was a good time.
