    labels are for alcohol bottles people. Drinks for Twinks? This post made me laugh (and not in the genuine way) drink what the fuck u want, and if u are worried about how u will be perceived after drinking a cosmo, just spit it in someone's face after punching out their boyfriend.

    Life2Short saidOrder 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

    Oh yeah... I grow the kind of cherry that gets made into cocktail cherries. So whatever you order, always ask for a cherry in it! icon_razz.gif
    (And not those small ones either - those are made from culls that nobody gets paid for. It should be bigger around than a quarter and heart-shaped. Don't be afraid to ask for the good stuff!)

    I think it was said in jest.

    I had someone do that. "Oh God girl that's soooo GAY! So while the other shamed guy tried to decide what he wants, I ask what the other WeHo type wants.....he says "Oh, I'll have a Cosmo, make it TWO!"

    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.

    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 used to buy my dad a bottle of Chivas Regal every Christmas. In the old days I'd drink bourbon or scotch in the winter and vodka in the spring/summer.

    Chivas on the rocks, let it sweat a little and sip. Good for conversation! It was just between us. At least it got him away from cheap beer for awhile!

    I don't order cocktails. Too easy for the bartender to make a weak drink. It's just better to drink shots or beers.

    Also, based on OP's posting history, it's becoming obvious that he needs to find a new circle of friends. icon_lol.gif

    If I've time to linger, I like gin straight on the rocks, but w/ all the veggies; Citadelle is my current favorite, as the other good ones are just too high in alcohol content. In bars, I'll usually go for a lite beer over ice, or soda water w/ citrus if I'm driving, or wine if dining. But on Election Nights, at home watching the returns come in, a good solid bourbon OTR is the only way to go!

    Yeah...nope. As sarcastic as I am, that wasn't sarcasm. I decided a long time ago that I would limit to a bare minimum the things I cared about others opinions of. Those pretty much are reserved to work environment and professionalism. Everything else? You take me as I am or you can take a hike.

    Cash saidI prefer grain alcohol served in a sweaty combat boot.

    Or a nice Zinfandel spritzer.


    I like mind strained through a sweaty jockstrap.


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


    That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!

    Drink what makes you happy, and if that makes you a "twink" then so be it and nothing wrong with being so anyway; better to be a happy "twink" than a miserable macho man. It really saddens me that even in the gay community exists such judgmental outlooks on things. We need to appreciate one another for our differences (masculine, feminine, urban country, whatever).

    I mostly order beer. Don't like coctails much.
    Anyway, who cares? Drink what you like. Maybe in the future Cosmos will become a hunky-macho trend, and all men will order cosmos instead. It's all fashion.

    I like my Manhattans with a twist of orange peel. Guess that makes me some sort of sissy.

    And Cash, have you forsaken the absinthe?

    Stop classifying people by what they drive or what they drink! Small minded people...Sheesh!



    I'm not much of a drinker. Never even drank anything other than beer until I was around 30. Business dinner= wine or cocktails.
    Wine it was.
    Learned to drink mixed drinks only later on.

    Now, when I first went to the LGBT resort in Key West several years ago, during Happy Hour when the resort gives you free drinks 4 until 6pm...I tried a cosmo, only because the bartender kept insisting I try it.

    Always thought it was a weak drink (not a sissy drink, just not potent, much like a Shirley Temple)
    Boy, was I wrong! icon_eek.gif
    Of course, there were mitigating circumstances...

    Let's just say that I found out later that he was making all of my drinks stronger than everyone else because he wanted me drunk.

    My ex-wife loved Chivas. My Dad's guy friends all bought him bottles at Christmas, often in fancy tins, sorta a macho man's gift. Some were Chivas.

    Except my Father never drank at home, so these gifts kept accumulating, even with offering drinks to guests. So he had dozens of them, all stashed away in any available cabinets. I know aged whiskeys & bourbons are valued, but that's in the cask. I'm not so sure they get better in the bottle, but some of his were over 20 years.

    When he moved to Florida those bottles filled many boxes. And were still untouched when he died, since he never entertained in Florida, my Mother too infirm to have guests.

    But my husband & I still follow that old custom, of giving our male friends who drink and/or entertain liquor bottles as holiday gifts. Like we're gonna buy them some socks? icon_rolleyes.gif

    wesv saidMy 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.)
    ?

    If your friend is buying then he can veto whatever.

    Cosmos are nice in that it's a drink but not terribly sweet. The glass, however, is a complete pain in the ass. And there's just not much volume =( Sip, sip, gone. Now what do I do with my hands?

    I think everyone mainly drinks beer around here.

    Students keep trying to get me to drink Long Island Ice Teas. I dutifully do.

    I like Dark and Stormy, White Russians, Gin Tonics, and I haven't had a Black Irish in ages but I remember it fondly.

    I have noticed though that there are three "go-to" drinks I ask for when at a bar: A Mojito, A Michelada, or a Tom Collins

    However I do love my darker beers: Guiness and Black Butte Porter

    As to what Clique I would fall into...I have no idea icon_question.gif
