What's your favourite tipple?

Ok, so I know I'm posting like mad but I'm at college waiting for a friend and I have to do something to keep me occupied...

When you go to a bar or a pub (or if you're underage and you go to a park.. giggle) what's your drink of choice?

I either go for a red wine (absolutely not white) or a dark bitter. I know the latter is a bit of an odd choice for a young girl but my boyfriend and his friends seem to find it really fun to sit around in old man pubs drinking bitter, so I just joined in. My favourite so far is one based in York called a Dark Ruby. Mmm it's like a really dark chocolate or strong licquorice. I also like a whisky, or if I want a soft drink it's pepsi.

When I'm at Glastonbury, if I'm buying a drink it's the cider tent everytime. Medium sweet cider = delicious. However if I'm drinking a drink I bought from home, because I had to carry it it has to be as alcoholic as it can possibly be, so it's vodka (and tesco's own, I'm ashamed to say.)

I also like cocktails but I don't drink those so often because they're expensive and you have to go to trendy bars to get them.


Mmmm alcohol.

I only drink cider (Magners or Bulmers, although Strongbow's not bad haha) and rose, I can't do the little accent thing over the e! But because I don't drink wine very often it makes me feel very ill. I don't drink that much anymore so after a glass of cider I feel a bit full and like i'd throw up if I had more. I also drink alcopops when I go out towards the end of the night cuz they're not that strong so I sober up before I get home. Not cuz my mum is strict, just because I hate going to sleep still drink. I like the odd shot too. I HATE lager.

I absolutley love strawberry margaritas [and ok, its weird for an underage person to be drinking, but half of my family are bartenders, and on vacations I'm allowed to drink some, and I usually choose not to, but yea... thats me explaning myself]. and I know this is really weird, but I LOVE the taste of beer. Corona is my favorite. There was this REALLY cheep box wine that my friends family had bought for new year's eve, and it tasted just like beer, and I LOVED it. I don't know why, everyone else hates it, but I just really like it. lol

but I'm really not picky, as long as its not jager, a cement mixer, or this other disgusting drink my aunt told me about called a Jersey Turnpike, which consists of the bartender taking the mat [the one that she makes all the drinks on, so its all the shit they spill] and pouring all of the runoff and much into a shotglass or normal glass... UGH.

lol well I suppose "weird" isn't quite the word, but... frowned upon I suppose? But when most people hear underage drinking, they think teens going wild, binge drinking, puking, getting totally smashed, and I do NOT do that, lol. But really, I've taken two psychology classes, where we've spent a month on the effects of drinking and what comes with it, and I know what will happen [or could], and I don't do it in excess. I've had a lot of different types of drinks, but I really don't drink that often. Its just whenever I do [which is only once or twice every few months] I have different types of drinks. I like to think that I'm one of those more "responsible" teens when it comes to drugs and drinking [and I DON'T do drugs, at all, lol]. but yea, thats me... Happy

I consider over 60 old, and you don't exactly look over sixty, lol. I think I'll be lucky, because my family is just... like... one giant party family. All of my aunts [I have/had7] partied non-stop for their entire lives. And they are VERY good with the drinking thing. Half of them are around 40 and they can still drink quite a few shots before needing to take some chaser plus, and I'm hoping I've enhereted that trait. But I'll find out next year. For my 18th birthday, my family and I are going to Cabo, Mexico [because 18 is legal in mexico, instead of 21 here in USA] and I'll get to party with them.

I used to vomit when I was younger and drinking. I thought it was completely normal, I thought it was all part of it! Now I just make a fool of myself instead. Hooray!

I love alcohol haha I can't drink red wine much anymore, which is one of my faves, as I always get mouth ulcers Happy
I really love and gin and tonic, preferably flavoured tonic like grapefruit, ice and lemon or lime.

I love cider, bulmers is my fave and I really miss it over here. I am not crazy for beer, but there are some really good Belgian ones that I have tried that are nice. Also just had one yesterday from Fullers, an organic honey beer mmm

I am a terrible drinker, I can't say when and get into terrible states! I've still not learned my lesson.

I drink pretty often. I used to exclusively drink hard liquor because I hated beer, but since I moved to the Pacific Northwest I drink beer a lot! There are so many amazing local brews (and wines!) here.

Generally I'll order Black Butte Porter if it's available. Nom nom nom.
