What Your Favorite Booze Says About You

favorite booze says about you

I mean, all of them say that you’ve known some trouble in your time.

(Fun fact: pretty much the only things I drink are champagne and bourbon. I didn’t include mixed cocktails in here because if I had to figure out what a Velvet Hammer said about you I’d be here all night and want to smash this computer in with an actual hammer).

    What about strawberry zinfandel?

    (…asked Sean just before his comment was deleted…)

      It would be the first comment I’ve ever deleted, but you’re testing me, Sean.

    I’m not proud of it, but if I had to choose just one as my preferred alcoholic beverage, it’s strawberry zinfandel.

    I don’t really drink much (never really developed a taste for booze), and it reminds me of a really happy time in undergrad…hanging out late at night, watching movies and talking with a dear friend of mine. She always had crates of the stuff.

    I figured if I could be honest anywhere, it’d be here.

    • Renee

      Oh,you can be honest, but we are judging you.

  • Janna

    You guuuuuys! Gin!

    • Jennifer Wright

      Ugh! I guess gin should really be “martinis?” They’re a mixed drink and I said that I wasn’t going to do cocktails. But really, a martini is just gin with the tiniest sprtiz of vermouth, so… apply all the attributes of a martini drinker.

    • Renee

      Gin is just flavored vodka, so I say mix the attributes of vodka and martini.

    • Janna

      That’s probably a good explanation. Vodka and martinis. Yep, sounds like me.

    • Cor

      I’m actually offended that anyone would refer to gin as “flavored vodka.” Maybe I love gin a little too much.

  • Renee

    So I’m a hearty, happy sort, with great cheek bones, a love of murder mysteries, and inner strength. I wish I lived in a country where I could bone hot guys with accents in the middle of the afternoon, preferably while wearing a hat (him or me).I like drinking alone with my pet, wearing a kimono, watching sports, and eating small things off of pointy sticks.

    Frighteningly accurate.

    Oh my god. I do. I do close out of Facebook when people try to contact me on it. HOW DO YOU KNOW MY LIFE

    I have had bourbon out of a teacup…. But it wasn’t my grandmothers. I just really needed to do the dishes.

  • Elizabeth

    I drink rye, gin, and champagne. I still recall the episode of Gossip Girl when the boy figured out the plot and said, ‘This elaborate ruse smells like gin and Chanel No. 5 … Grandma Cece!” From then on, my goal has been to become Grandma Cece when I am old.

    • Jennifer Wright

      When Grandma CeCe said “I don’t like my ice to get lonely, dear!” I thought, “well, I finally have a life motto, now.”

    So does this mean I should like beer better than really good white wine? :)

    • MR

      PS. Nothing compliments a woman’s neck more than a lovely strand of white pearls.

    • Jennifer Wright

      It depends. Do you want to be hearty or understand the nature of female pain and ennui?

    • MR

      I am hearty. I understand women less than the understand me. :)

  • Kathryn H.

    Ugh, y’all got me just right with the scotch. Super accurate :)

  • Anne

    Oops. How about all of the above except bourbon? What does that say about me?? Well, apart from “you’re a fucking alcoholic” which would be a bit too obvious.

    • Jennifer Wright

      You’re fun!

    • Anne

      Next time I’m in NY, I’ll go drinking with all of you. And with the red wine, I’ll show off all the foreign accents I can do. Should be interesting.

  • Larissa

    What about tequila? That’s the only liquor I actually enjoy, I drink it with club soda or as a gimlet, not just hot mess shots. No tequila love, here?

  • valfreyja

    No Gin? Really?

    What about cocktails? What if I like bourbon in White Russians and vodka in Greyhounds? If I have the good stuff I prefer to drink it on the rocks, however — maybe all this says about me is that I am poor.
