On the other hand, I think most people drink it because they like how it kills your thinking cells.

But he'll admit, it tastes like crap.

We both, however, do like some beers. I'm a fan of beers like Samuel Adams or XX, while he loves German beers. Although again, he drinks them for the effect, more than the taste. I personally, also, can't stand the control and feeling alcohol has over my mind and body, so I tend to avoid them at all costs. I feel like crap drinking alcohol, then I feel like crap when I'm done drinking, so really, it all must be crap. :-)
Jesus, tell it like it is.

Try a good brandy on the rocks.

Even high end rums are great by themselves.

Hummmmmm, taste was irrelevant, back when I was drinking, I drank for effect.

Pure alcohol? Not really... Sure, I've been known to take Everclear shots and I keep a bottle around to boost up various drinks, but it's certainly not a regular thing.

I love fruity and sour drinks, adult beverages where I can't even taste the alcohol, but instead are just nice and flavorful. I'll have a periodic shot, but (unless I'm being judged by friends ) I'll go with something like raspberry vodka rather than a traditional shot like rum, tequila, vodka, etc.

For the longest time the only alcoholic beverages I enjoyed were liquor. I simply wouldn't touch beer, because I hated it. A friend tried to introduce me to the joys of beer through some horrible Sam Adams and I was barely able to get through a few sips. I also tried Corona on my own and after a couple of hours ended up capping it and "saving it for later." I've since developed somewhat of a taste for beer, but my preferences still run toward the light ales and "skunky" beers as opposed to the "complex" and "dark" beers. Nonetheless, if offered a choice, I'll go with a mixed drink over beer most of the time.

Straight liquor....no, I hate pretty much any straight liquor. I do like beer (certain beers) though.

Even though this thread is old I will never understand the mindset of humans who say: "I only drink at a party/bar/wedding (fill in the blank)......because everyone else does". Would you jump off a cliff if everyone else was jumping off the cliff? I do not drink if I do not feel like having a drink, period and I do not care what anyone is doing or thinks about my not having a drink.
