Getting drunk isn't cool anymore.  A lot of that has to do with social media and people like Lindsay Lohan.
About 20 years ago you were a social outcast if you didn't drink.  Now it's like the other way around.
A lot of people are going on juice binges.  This is why some brewers are adding fruit flavors to their beer.

But one doesn't have to drink to the point of drunkeness. Sometimes I take myself out a nice cold (an ice cold?) beer, and it's just right. With BBQ, or after mowing the yard. Or I have a little bourbon (Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace, or Pappy Van Winkle, if I've just won the lotto) with a nice meal. It goes down a treat.

I agree that getting sloppy drunk isn't too cool, but was it ever? But having a drink or two with friends is an enhancer in a way that juice drinks are not.

Don’t try Bud Light lemon.  It’s nasty.

Had some Jamaican flavored margarita at a Mexican place with family.

Had Bud Orange after an eight hour shift building a shed in 90+.  Somehow, it tasted amazing.

(wow, that picture's too big . . . .)

One of these things? Looks like this? It doesn't sound like it tastes great, but I'll try anything once. Now, how to get one where I live . . . .

I remember when a friend's dad made me a vodka martini, shaken, not stirred. It was awful, possibly one of the worst things I've ever had to drink. Huge disappointment, Bond . . .

Yep, that's it.  First one is horrible, but they become an acquired taste.  The cultural ritual around them is the best part of having one.

I love this thread!  If ever I doubt whether I really am an alcoholic, I come here.  When my mouth starts watering I realize that 32 years after my last drink, I'm as much of an alcoholic today as I was then.

:cheers:

Wine walk in Carson City today, where businesses give short pours of various wines as folks peruse their crafts and services.  I sampled various red blends, including the always dependable Apothic Red, and a decent moscato. The highlight for me was jazz at the Old World Coffee Lab ("coffee lab"?  pretentious much?)

Three young men from UNR laying down some pretty good stuff, and we were the only three hanging around listening.  I tipped them well and wished them luck, thanking them for bringing some culture to town.

Fathom IPA

Been trying out different kinds.  Ain’t having Sierra Nevada Torpedo again, though.  Way too bitter for my tastes.  The town I grew up nearby in, Claremont, has a good brand of craft ales.  Grapefruit is a favorite of mine.
