I'm sure most of us like a drink, indeed, some more than most, so it'd be nice if we could give a few recommendations that we might find mutually agreeable. No Pepsi though.
I think if I could only take three types to my desert island they'd be:

Lager/beer.  Samuel Adams

Wine.  Crows Landing Malbec 

Spirit  Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey.

A few Guinness of course. For health reasons.

Adnam's Ghost Ship Pale Ale - but only if it comes from my local where they know how to look after it. Can be shit elsewhere.
Wine? Depends. CSince Portugal I'm back on the reds and just discovered Black Stump Durif Shiraz which is "blackcurrant, licorice and dark chocolate" flavoured but I'll be changing again. You just can't pick one wine.
Go to spirit is Lagavulin 16 year, but I do like Courvoisier occasionally

And for "health reasons" Irwell Works Marshmallow Unicorn stout - so tasty it seems like someone's nicking your pint it goes down so fast.

Fursty Ferret is a favourite of mine. Since lockdown I've experimented with quite a few bottled beers, and I've been pleasantly surprised by a few of them.

I'm a big fan of sour beers at the moment and one of the best is from Alphabet

https://alphabetbrewing.co.uk/collections/webshop/products/treasure-valley-6-1-sour-ipa

Most of their range is great but they don't make a lot of the different beers and change quite a lot.

The London Beer factory have a great sour as well, Sour Solstice

I use Beer Hawk online a lot as well and get mixed cases and individual beers as well.They do excellent cases for Belgian and German beers as well as IPA's and loads of other types of beer.

This is new to me, and I'll certainly be having a look.

I love sour beers and these two are great. Beer Hawk does have some in stock but not as many as pre-covid, they seem to be sticking to the popular mixed cases.

This selection of Douro reds is worth a look.
I'm told that they arrive beautifully packed and they are eminently quaffable at £2 to £4 a bottle delivered to your door. Haven't tried them yet but my source is reliable and I didn't have a bad one in the Douro. Thinking of getting a couple of mixed cases and then honing in on my faves.
