Do you remember when you first drank alcohol?

I am in Europe so I can legally drink. Because I skipped the party stage, this is my first time. I first tried hard apple cider. I thought it tasted like the nonalcoholic apple cider that's served around the holidays. But I didn't like the aftertaste. I also tried a dark chocolate mousse with Bailey's Irish cream poured on top. I thought that tasted good.

  • It's very vague memories, but it was when I was 2. My dad and his drinking buddy spoon fed me beer. It happened so often that I'd call him uncle carlsberg.

    The guy was cool. I don't remember so much of the details anymore, but he had a rolls and a chauffeur that he would send for us. He died a long time ago though.

  • If the cider is "medium" it will taste like juice only it has an alcohol content. If you get it "dry" it will taste more like booze. Beer and red wine are good as a meat marinade. But Beer is also useful if you're working out after sports for the nutrients in it.

    Most liquors do taste good and sweet. You either sip them or cook with them. Creme de Cacao is chocolate liquor, then there is Kahlua (coffee), banana flavored, peppermint schnapps or peach which make some nice cocktails, and a variety of wines. Rum is also nice or cognac which also is similar. While whiskey is nice to cook with it like gin can be an acquired taste.

    You can get alcohol free ciders which are usually dry ciders that are sold in grocery stores. Japan makes a few types of grape ciders which are a nice soda pop that does taste like apple or pear cider. I occasionally drink them because I have a few supplements and meds I'm on which don't always mix with alcohol. Growers also makes an apple or peach alcohol free (well it's 0.07%).

    Chi chi (pineapple juice, orange juice, coconut milk, and rum) usually is good, so are margaretha's, brown cows (or mudslide which are coffee cream), and several others. You can get little taster sizes from a liquor store to see what something is like. Or you can ask a bartender to try a shot of something or if they can recommend something to a newbie. Many now carry menu's that describe the drink not just its ingredients.

  • Yup, I remember!

    First weekend in college, my roommate was a big partier and I had a minifridge with a full freezer (awesome for storing hard liquor). He prepartied with some people and said I could have some of his booze.

    So my neighbor next door and I took 3 shots each... and were mad drunk! ;-)

  • Yeah I was 13 and had a can of Heineken. Didn't like it. Poured half of it down the sink.

    Beer like that is an acquired taste.

  • Yes. I was in 6th grade and I drank some amaretto that my dad had thrown in the cabinet with all all the spices. It was in some Christmas basket and no one was drinking it so I drank like half the bottle. My second drink was about a half bottle of scotch whiskey about a month later. My dad got ticked off about that. :D Then after that me and some friends started drinking beer, wine, and hard liquor basically every weekend

  • Never. And shall not; a matter of policy; quite odd for a Scot and to say in our own dialect; never gotten hoolit ;)

    Well, I have seen several friends of mine become slaves to it and personally, I am no better than them when it comes to controlling addiction. Moreover, I have a psychological block, considering, I feel the cause of my breakup was owing to her slavery to the habit.

    So yeah, not very helpful to your question, but yeah, just answered.

  • Yea, I had a few beer with a friend's grandparents. Since you're in Europe I suggest some German beer, Port wine, or something else with a lighter flavour to start you out.

  • Not really. I know my parents gave me sips of cider and stuff from when I was like six. The first time I had a proper drink to myself that I wanted was at my best friend's 18th birthday party, I think, and it was just shitty WKD :P

  • I don't remember it but I do remember being told about it later in life. I was a toddler at a picnic going around and bumming sips of beer. Everyone thought it was both cute and funny to see a toddler bumming sips of beer so everyone was giving me a sip. Didn't take long for me to get drunk, mom said I threw up all over the place.
