I've tried to develop a taste for wine, since that's what cultured people drink, but it's just spoiled grape juice to me.  I've learned that I prefer the dry spoiled grape juice to the sweet spoiled grape juice, for what it's worth.  But most of our wine goes to deglazing a pan before making gravy.

You can't go wrong with vodka.  Vodka martini if you're in a nice place; "vodka rocks" in the bars around here where you'd look a little precious holding a martini glass (if they have any).

Don't fall for any of that 'cultured-people-do-this' nonsense; it's a lever that progessives and atheists use to get Catholics to be ashamed of themselves.

You like what you like.  End of story, no need to apologize!

I live in wine country and happen to like wine and beer both.  But much of the time, I stick with beer, because there aren't enough folks around to finish a bottle of wine.  :laughing:

I like Coors Light myself. As for mixed drinks I think my favorite is Rum(specifically Capt. Morgan)& Coke. I don't drink much or often, but when I do, beer isn't my beverage of choice.

That's probably because you're drinking Coors Light.

Better beer is better than bitter beer.  Just sayin.

Corona is disgusting, but it's a light beer, hardly bitter.

How could you not like Guinness?  Maybe if you took it easy on those wine coolers and raspberry martinis it wouldn't be so bad.

For my eighteenth birthday, my eldest sister took me to the pub and bought me a half-pint of Guinness.

:puke:

One might as well put a bar of soap in one's mouth.

Mon Ami,

I'm sorry I suggested it! Mea culpa!
