    Hard liquor: cold or room temperature?

    My whole life growing up (I live in America), my parents always kept their liquor at room temperature in a kitchen cabinet. At bars too they keep it sitting out in plain view.

    But when I came to college all of my friends keep their hard liquors in the refrigerator to store for long term and the freezer if they're going to be drinking it within the next few hours.

    When I told my parents this they just looked at me weird and said that nobody drinks liquors cold. But it seems to make more sense. If you're drinking a Jack and Coke for example, why would you want your whiskey to warm up the pop? Or even if you're just going to drink it straight. Since almost every other beverage except coffee is drank cold, wouldn't you also do the same with your liquor? It also cuts down on the burn.

    I'm adding a poll to see what's the norm.
    The only thing I know for certain is that I know nothing at all, for certain.

    I do not like my jägermeister anything but cold, but it is different from liquor to liquor.

    This. It really depends upon the alcohol. Some taste better cold, while others taste better warm.

    And if you're going to drink Jack, you need to drink it like a man. You'll need a Lime, some salt, and a cold glass of straight Jack. You snort the salt, shoot the Jack, and squirt the lime in your eyes.

    I put it in the freezer the night before. We keep one each in the freezer at all times of Tequila, Scotch and Brandy. I used to drink Crown Royal and Dr. Pepper, but they went and changed the formula for D.P., so I moved on to bigger and better liquors. We had a liquor rack built into the wall in our den, so there is quite the assortment and lots of ice in the fridge for those unscheduled temptations.

    What can be better than Crown Royal?

    Personally, I think Crown Royal Black is the top of the line of whiskeys for me, but I can't see myself spending exuberant amounts of money on alcohol. (750 mL of Crown Royal is about 25 USD around here)

    Typically when I drink liquor straight, vodka and Jagermeister generally come from the freezer, but when it comes to scotch and gin I prefer them at room temperature. When they are mixed in a drink, I'm not particularly fussy.
