    My friend and I were at a bar in WeHo. He asked me what I wanted as long as it wasn't a cosmo. I asked him why I couldn't have a cosmopolitan. He said it was for twinks. (WooHoo I'm not considered a twink.)

    That made me wonder. What types of drinks represent each gay clique?

    Some of the things I have in mind are heavy ass beers for bears and light beers for otters.

    Watcha think?

    I literally have no idea what to order at a bar. I have an app that's like a slot machine: spin the wheel and it comes up with a drink. I don't recall that it's ever given particularly good advice. icon_confused.gif

    A few times, I've been roped into manning the "beer garden" at the local rodeo. (Generally sludgeweiser, maybe one tolerable regional brew, and a couple of things "for the ladies." ) if a dude comes up and asks for "a wine cooler, please," everybody turns around and stares.

    WTF is a Cosmo, anyway?

    Cosmopolitan. The pink drink.

    And interesting that you mention about that app. What is it called?

    It's called "mixologist." Does other things... You can tell it what bottles you have and it tells you what drinks you can make. I think it also gives you a shopping list for the liquor store.

    Gin-tonic is quite popular among gays, at least around here.
    More than often, I go for gin tonic.

    Man up, Dudes. Ask for a Manhattan on the rocks. It's whisky colored and it's served in an Old Fashioned glass like a man's drink should be. Act as though you are ignoring the cherry disdainfully and then quick scarf it down when nobody's looking. icon_razz.gif

    yes and its not a girls drink.

    I always assumed Cosmo's and those fruity drinks like sex on the beach were all girl drinks

    Cosmos are what the girls drank in "Sex in the City".
    Double vodka, Triple Sec, Lime Juice, splash of cranberry in a chilled martini glass.

    Strong, but goes down easy. I've had guys order it a regular glass to not look so "Gay"!

    Most people, at least in Gay Bars drink vodka with Cran/tonic/soda, or Rum w/Diet Coke or Coke.
    Bourbon is more popular than Gin these days.

    Hands down Bud Light is the most popular beer, then Shock Top. Rolling Rock is also popular. PBR is popular, only because it's cheap (nasty beer) IMHO!

    There isn't any particular drink for any clique.

    Order what you want and screw anyone who judges you for it. If your friend has a problem with you drinking a cosmo then he's not long-term friend material. He sounds really judgy

    Odd, a Manhattan was one of my Mother's favorite cocktails before dinner, while my Father would have a scotch & soda, or neat. But only when eating out, they never drank at home, not even wine at the table. Meanwhile my sister & I were each given a Shirley Temple as kids - my parents hated to drink alone. LOL!

    On the few occasions I drink beer, usually with a pizza or sometimes after golf, to quench my thirst, I've gotten to like Yuengling. Which sounds sorta Chinese, but is actually America's oldest brewery, founded by a German immigrant in the early 1800s.

    With bartenders I trust I sometimes will tell them "bartender's choice" to see what they bring me. I must wear it on my face or something, because most of the time they choose exactly what I was thinking. Good bartenders know their customers.

    My Father told me his "Rule of the Three Bs" when I was fairly young. "Robert, if you want to have success and happiness in life, follow the Rule of the Three Bs," he intoned in his most serious voice, which in later years I finally learned meant he was about to dupe me.

    "Gee, Dad, what's that?" I asked in a high squeaky voice.

    "Always be on good terms with your Banker, your Barber, and your Bartender."

    "Wow! But I can't have a bartender yet."

    "That's OK, we'll work on the other two until then."

    My late Father had a wickedly subversive, if not perverted sense of humor. I still follow his Rule, though. icon_biggrin.gif

    Although oddly, I don't think I ever had alcohol in front of him or my Mother, right into my 40s when they died. Even when they were having a cocktail themselves at dinner with me. With them I always remained their little son, who remained forever ineligible to drink or have a bartender. It was some kind of image thing I didn't want to shatter, by downing a martini in front of them.

    I'm a fan of White Russians and White Icy's personally, though if my manliness is challenged I'll do some chugging of beer (hate the stuff though).

    Smirnoff Ice is nice icon_razz.gif

    I'd like to think I'm over the "man's drink" "woman's drink" thing though. I'd rather enjoy my beverage than satisfy the Status Quo.

    Stella is supposed to be a nice Lighter beer, I've tried it before and for beer it's quite agreeable.

    Dictated in the style of Stefon:

    Twink-For today's twink on the go, the hit drink is the Elizabeth Taylor. Made with Creme de Lavender, champagne, and costume diamonds, this light drink will soon have you sandwiched between Richard Burton's gay nephew and Claws the cat. All this without mudd-butt and wrecking the intense enema preparation for later in the night.
    people-gay-pride-parade-milan-italy-june

    Jock-No jock has ever been found in the wild and they're only rumored to exist. The closest any bar came was an all gay 'flag' football team, and a group from a yoga club. A social experiment is on-going in Manhattan whereby "Boxers" is supposed to pull these rumored creates after their gym or real sports gathering, but so far we're wall to wall with circuit party boys and human bocce balls. You know, a human bocce ball is that thing, where a midget bends over and grabs his ankles, and people roll him in Central Park to outscore their friends. At any rate, it's speculated a true jock would drink what frat boys drink--Budlight lime.

    ElderGay-From yesterday's twink to today's reviled ambassador of death, for the eldergay on the go today's drink of choice is Shirley Temple. Today's eldergay is too smart to revert back to his prior 4 decades of functional alcoholism, and this drink will help keep him on the wagon, and his Rascal Scooter. Teetotlers rejoice as this drink fuses ginger ale, grenadine, and the tears of a life's dreams unfulfilled.

    Asian gay-Today's GaySian doesn't trend far from tradition in heralding the Jell-O shot as the drink of choice. With an average towering height of 4'11, this shot to a mere mortal is the equivalent of a 40 OZ King Cobra to modern GaySians. Made with Jell-O, vodka, and a pinch of self-hatred, the drink goes down like water and packs a punch.

    Black gay-Modern urban explorers rejoice at Coca-Cola. This mixer par excellance can be ordered at any venue and inevitably mised in the bathroom with the flask of Hennessy you smuggled into the bar. Tips are never expected with this drink, and it's often comp'd. Made with Coke, ice, and the bartender's realization he won't make any money from you, this stable companion will never disappoint.

    Country gay-Rural gay boys at Club Rodeo have reason to celebrate as the Manhattan has just replaced the LIT as the country boy's drink of choice. Made with whiskey, vermouth, and lowered expectations, this drink will momentarily assuage the gay who finds himself trapped in a fly-over state. Attempting to immitate what you've always wanted has never been easier, and is certainly simpler than naming your child Mercedes or Lexus.

    trapped in a fly over state bar; only beer on tap is along the lines of something that advertises with cute dogs? actually blue moon works best but also sludgeweiser... add a shot of orange juice to the beer and call it functional.

    I prefer grain alcohol served in a sweaty combat boot.

    Or a nice Zinfandel spritzer.

    Yeah, that works too - especially if the jockstrap is still being worn while the drink is poured...

    Labeling is fun, I´ve always enjoyed that!

    But if and when you notice, that your own taste doesn´t match with the labeling!!!!!! What to do icon_eek.gif !!!.....lol, talking about cosmo, it´s so gay, so what´s the big deal! But, if you wanna call it a twink drink, I personally don´t mind. It has that "cheap" label thanks to Sex and the City, so....for the twinks, why not.

    P.S. Personally I don´t drink it
