  • Well, happy birthday 😊

    It depends, lol. Drinking for taste? Or for effect?

    I'll share some of my favs-

    Vodka: depends on if you're mixing, or straight. Grey Goose and Belvedere are best for straight, as are some of the infused ones. Had Belvedere Intense once, not sure you can get it anymore. Was 100 proof instead of 80. And my favorite kind is hard to find too, it's called Little Black Dress. Smoothest I've ever tasted.

    To mix, depends if you like sweet or less sweet. You can mix it with most anything, that's the nice part about vodka. There's the usual, soda or redbull, or cranberry juice. A couple off the wall ones are pomegranate juice or guava. Had it with guava in Chicago once, and it's surprisingly good.

    Hint for vodka too... If you're drinking a lot of it, go with potato, grain based makes for worse hangovers.

    Whiskey: The usual are Jack or Crown, both are alright. Good if mixed, and some are great straight. Honey Jack is damn good straight, and so is Stranahans. If you like whiskey sours, try a Ward 8. There's a lot more to whiskey, lol. Ask your bartender.

    Wine: way too much to go into, lol. Figure out if you like reds, or whites. Reds can be super dry, to not at all. I love red wine mixed with Italian food, but for casual glasses, mostly whites. See if you can find Infinite Monkey Theorem. They make really good blended wines, the Riesling is my favorite.

    Beer: again, waaaayyy too much for here. Learn the types, and flavors. For example, some IPAs are way too hoppy for me, some are delicious. Some of the very best beers are your smaller microbrews. Not talking Sam Adams, but ones that have the creative freedom to make all kinds of wacky shit. There's even coffee beer, lol. It's not bad. Some of the Belgian once are great, if you like dark beer. Dushesse is phenomenal.

    If you go for tequila, do the infused ones. There's a pomegranate one from Mexico, called La Pinta, that is lethal. Sneaks up on you because it is so easily drinkable.

    Hmmm... anything I've forgotten? I'm sure you'll find what you like best. Trying stuff is fun, and you'll figure out your go-tos. Have fun, and above all, be safe. No sense in enjoying any of it if your not.

  • I am seeing a lot of sugary drinks down there in the answers.

    If you don't drink often, then that means you haven't been hungover often. Alcohol plus sugar leads to a terrible feeling. Have an alcoholic drink, then have a water drink. Do that the whole night.

    Ok, less warnings:

    Wine: I love Pino Noir, but honestly, if you're gonna do wine, you should only do wine that night. So maybe thats not tonights drink.

    Beer: Ask the bartender what seasonals or sours they have from local craft breweries. Drink something made in your home town. It'll feel more special. Stay away from stouts and porters, they'll make you feel too bloated.

    Liquor: Get an old fashioned. Its delicious and manly. Don't do shots, they're overpriced. Get one girly drink and order it like this "I want the most delicious girly fancy cocktail you got" you don't be disappointed :)

    *tequila
    *mojito
    *vodka tonic

    for birthdays, tequila and rum or vodka shots chased with soda are common. for something classier you could go to a nice bar where they have beer or wine sampler trays. as a plus, they often come with food pairings too.

    on your b-day stick with only 1 or 2 types of drinks and keep plenty of water nearby. then over time try out some more.

  • A good Manhattan is pretty dope, whiskey sours, old fashioned, I'll fuck with a cosmo or martini once in a while. Then I like local draft and white wine, particularly Riesling.

  • Go for the classic cocktails: Manhatten, Gin Martini, Margarita, Mojito, or Bloody Mary's. You can make mixed drinks yourself but cocktails can be trickier. If you try those you'll give yourself more of a base of knowledge about other drinks.

  • I've only been of age for like 6 months, but so far I've discovered that I like ciders and apple ales better than beer. And I'm not a fan of hard liquor but mixed drinks are alright. Blue Kinky with Sprite is probably my fav.

  • Beer&wine, brand doesn't really matter even though I love a good chardonnay for wine. Wine from south-africa is also good.
    Liquor, I don't know if you have safari? Love that shit, smirnoff ice, tequila shots are fun to do, breezer, flügel shots.

    DON'T DRINK JAGERBOMBS! They fuck you up, and make you drink more causing horrid effects.

  • I like smirnoff vodka. I typically drink it with juice but you could use pop if you like. It also makes for a pretty smooth shot.

    • and jager is disgusting and will fuck you up, don't do it. I find my best drunks start off with a couple glasses of wine. I like boones strawberry hill wine.

  • Anything kinda sweet really so I can sip on it, and not have the liquor jump me as fast lol. Look up diff drinks you can order so you'll already know what you'll want. I like coconut type things or anything tropical

  • like u really didn't drink any alcohol till now?

    start with some beer and maybe beer mixed with softdrink and liquor.

    if you take on the heavy stuff it'll not taste as good, it would be almost as disgusting as cigarettes

  • I'm Polish so my drink of choice after craft beers is Vodka. Of course I'm partial to Zubrowka Bison Grass Vodka. It's smooth and dry. Goes great in anything! That's the danger. I'm fine one minute and the next drooling on the floor!

  • Beer and liquor, not a fan of wine.
    Darker beers are best
    Whiskey is also best.
    But for a young lady probably something mixed with vodka and then a few beers

  • Jack Daniel's is my favorite. But its your 21st and I don't recommend spending your money on that all night. Try new things. Dealers (bartenders) choice can be fun too. You may get some free drinks if you tell them it's your bday

    • Old fashions are always good. Don't find to many other people who enjoy them.

    • @akadatank44 Tried it with Gentleman Jack, now that was good stuff!

    • Oh yeah I bet. I love Jack. I only have them around Christmas time. Kinda a family tradition. My dad has always made them with Southern Comfort. Gives it a sweeter taste

  • I love cocktails. Zombies are my fav! Lots of rum and juice and grenadine!

  • When I turned 21, my grandpa said one thing: "Boy, pick your horse, and ride it all night. Don't go switching horses, mid-stream"
    He was talking about drinks, and the lady I was dating.
    If you are going out, 21, to get hammered, stick with ONE drink, like Vodka. If you mix drinks and beer, and cocktails, and a lot of SHT, you are going to HATE the next morning!!
    Stick with something clear, light, and just shots, like vodka. Have a BIG Glass of water after every three or four shots! Then a half liter of water before bed!
    The next morning, Ramen noodle soup, mostly just the broth, or McDonald's Cheeseburgers (depends on your mood or who you ask!!)
    Stay away from wine, as it is the ABSOLUTE WORST hang-over!!
    Beer, well, you only 'rent beer' and end up pissing a dozen times through the night!
