I used to keep my fridge stocked with beers and would usually drink 2-3 at the end of the day. Then I realized it was entirely pointless to intake hundreds of calories late at night just for a slight buzz.

After that epiphany, I bought a handle of JW Black Label and I'll make a drink on the rocks once every couple weeks on average. Life is better without alcohol most of the time, but that doesn't hold me back when the time is right.

I drink everything. What I drink depends on the atmosphere. Where I am, the time of year, what I'm doing, etc.

Summer, when I'm at BBQs, camping, or a patio bar, it's usually cold beer. I prefer heavier beers like stouts and porters. If I'm going to be having a few, I'll usually switch to a lighter lager. Craft breweries are huge right now, so there are always a ton of new beers to explore. Beer is usually my go-to at any bar, because it's really hard to screw up pouring a pint.

Fall and winter, I usually prefer wine and cocktails. Last year I decided to learn about wine because I never really understood it. I would go to the liquor store and choose a bottle based on how the label looked. Spent a few months exclusively drinking French wines. Reading about the regions, the geography, the geology. Learned how to taste using a simplified tasting grid. Fell down the rabbit hole pretty deep. This year, I think I'm going to "study" Spanish wine.

Cocktails have also been a huge thing for me the last 3-4 years. I've loosely followed The Spirited Awards for bar recommendations, and have gone to many of the "best" cocktail bars in London, Paris, etc. Will hopefully be hitting NYC this fall to visit a few of the greats there. It's fun to explore the original cocktails at these bars, but when I'm at home I usually fall back on the classics: Negroni variations, Old Fashioned, Aviation, Last Word, Martinez, etc.

My outlet for alcohol? Most of it comes out of my dick. Back when I was in my 20s some of it would come out my mouth. Cheap lager feels like it comes out the ass but that could be the curry. I am pretty sure some of it comes out in sweat. But yeah, mostly the penis.

Wine with food most of the time. Beer if BBQ or texmex. Otherwise it's mostly prosecco, cosmopolitans, margaritas and whisky sours. Occasionally a G&T.

Calories = 97 (per 1.5 ounces)

Brandy, cognac
Calories = 98 (per 1.5 ounces)

imagine drinking 12 ounces of any distilled product

only way to lighten that up is to take out the alcohol and simply water it down.

get you some lite ciders or mix it with something less caloric.......like water, carbonated water, or other diet drinks
As one doctor explained, When you drink alcohol, it turns to acetate and your body switches to burning that versus sugars and fats. It doesn't really matter how much calories are in a drink. Until the booze is processed, those sugars and fats sit on the sidelines. Thats really why people get fat drinking, not from the calories from the drink itself.

I'm getting where I just stick to beer. Vodka, Tequila and the Captain have kicked my ass just too many times.

I stopped drinking like 5 years ago. But I still have one bottle of crown royal left that I'll take a shot from occasionally. But once that bottle is empty, it's forever time.





Also, I sometimes enjoy a beer with my cheeseburger.

I generally just like the odd beer a couple of times a week. If I'm working a long roster beer throws me around too much. That said I just got back from Ireland and that was a pretty bingey affair.... time and a place for everything.

that is good stuff...thank you scoobs for the elaboration

yeah they count alcohol sugars differently in nutritional analysis

in those diabetic candy bars, snacks , they don't usually attribute them any calories at all which i always thought from a thermo, conservation of energy, standpoint seemed shady as **** and borderline dishonest

but how you explain this helps to explain that position better

I default to gin & tonic, but I also like cider. I like to switch things up a little every now and again though, whisky + coke etc.

cheep beer and good friend

Once in a while I get HAMMERED with the boys, soundly BLITZKREIGED with a truly bottled mind.

And wine with my women also poured on her snatch taking the initial 'bite' out of a good tongue lashing

Have a cabinet full of full bottles o' booze to bottle my mind at some future point in time.
