Skip to comments.Favorite Beverages of our Freepers??
Posted on 01/01/2013 11:15:42 AM PST by SamAdams76
I have often wondered what preferences of beverages the various Freepers have, in particular, the kind of intoxicating liquors they tried to ban back in 1920. I know by reading stories on here that many of us consume intoxicating liquors from time to time and we may even have some Freepers who have accumulated some POIs over the years (posting under the influence). Obviously, don't post your favorite intoxicating liquor if you do not want to, but I just thought it would be interesting to see our beverage choices. Especially the morning after many of us quite possibly overindulged on same the night before...wait, is it afternoon already? Darn. Having breakfast at 1PM always throws me off my game.
If you don't drink intoxicating liquors at all, feel free to tell us what beverages you do drink. Milk, apple juice, sarsaparilla? Your reply might be boring to us but let us know anyhow if you feel so inclined to share.
In response to all the other nutty threads here today seeking personal information on Freepers, I am 50, have brown hair, hazel eyes, weigh 225 pounds and I prefer female company. My waist size is 40, my shoe size is 12 and yes, I do need to keep an eye on my blood pressure. I own a dog, a cat and no, I do not snore. As for intoxicating liquors, I prefer madeira wine, Samuel Adams seasonals, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, 100% agave tequila and the occasional bottle of champagne. But preferably not all together at the same time as what happened last night. As of this moment my favorite beverage is Gatorade.
Here in south central PA we don’t even see Genessee beer. Is that company still in operation? In a former life, in 1962, while attending IBM School in Endicott, NY our classes were held from 3:00 to 11:00 PM.
After class we ALWAYS went out for some relaxing libation, which usually was Genny because of the locale. It wasn’t bad at all.
I also found it cutely quaint when some ladies we met from the Buffalo area referred to PIZZA as “Hot Tomato Pie.”
my favorite beverages are Dr. Pepper, 100% fruit juice and stuff like that
Happy New Year!
Midleton Very Rare - Irish Whiskey.
But our Lord says to love them, and pray for them. I haven’t got that far because I want them to burn in hell, where they belong.
I’ve been in AZ since the mid 90s so I dunno what’s up with Genny. I have heard it’s both bankrupt and booming...who knows?
It was the National Beer of the Adirondack Tri-Lakes region when I lived there though ;)
I like the Bombay sapphire, too. Usually only in the summer, though.
The rest of the year I like Edna Valley chardonnay.
Jesus is perfect. I am not. I say to hell with our enemies. That’s WHY they are called enemies.
I don’t think God would want us praying to benefit or support evil. And I am more than willing to bet my soul o it.
I LOVE Dr.Pepper. As well as the orange soda, something burst and grape soda, I believe to be Welsh’s.
I don’t drink soda very often. However when I do, it’s a matter of choosing between the 3 I have stated above.
since I’m on chemo now, my drink is Gatorade.
Vernor’s is in Florida now? I remember when it (and Boston Coolers - named after the street in Detroit) were only in Michigan.
St Paddy’s Day and New Year’s Eve a Guiness draft and a shot of Bushmills on the side.
Maybe not benefit and support evil, but try to change their ways?
People at work think I’m a “Jesus freak”. Fine with me. But what if I could just touch 1 soul. What if just 1 soul would turn to Christ because of my “blathering”?
5. Diet Ginger Ale
Georgia is nice :)
I get what you are saying, but consider this. You can still pray for them privately without empowering them publicly. And by empowering, I mean giving them an inch of acceptance.
When we ‘get along’ with these idiots, they just point to it and say to others ‘well so and so is cool with X and he/she’s conservative.
It works against us in the big and the small picture.
Just like how the GOP uses the support Romney got to ‘prove’ the country is really moderate and ‘rejects’ those extremists in the TEA Party.
It's hard to watch the death of your country. But see my editorial in the next few days to catch a ray of hope.
In fact, you should be in my ping list.
And catch up on my other editorials in my links list.
If we are to marry, you should know me.
Is it red?
Georgia is quite red, and likely to stay red longer than texas, which is reaching a tipping point soon.
It's also not groovy.
Great. They went gay with the packaging.....
I remember the simple gold labels and red/blue 6-pack holders. White cans or green/gold.
Is NOTHING sacred?
Does it have those palmento bugs? Or whatever they are called?
Sam, are you sure your favorite drink isn’t 42?
I don’t know. A friend’s father collected beer cans and that was his favorite. I don’t know if he ever got a hold of an unopened can. If you look at Miss Fruthingslosh, she’s rather well endowed and that’s how the pictures on all the cans look.
The cans were too funny!
Once upon a time. But not anymore. Not since...
Unsweetened Kool-Aid sweetened with Splenda. I keep several flavors on hand. Favs are orange, black cherry, grape, and lemmon/lime.
Right now lemmon/lime is keeping me hydrated.
I haven't seen one in a while.
Welch's is pretty good stuff.
Pocari Sweat? Supposed to taste horrible but sells well in Japan and Korea for some reason. electrolytes!
Yeah but they are not a worry. They are less annoying than true roaches. Roaches are plentiful in New York and you know how they are very tough to get rid of and very numerous. Not so with Palmetto bugs. They are relatively rare and die easily, and I think I’ve seen maybe 10 in the 10 years I’ve been here.
I love diet Vernors Ginger Ale. Sometimes I ad a shot of vanilla vodka to it. Vernor’s frequently makes me sneeze, not sure if it’s the ginger or the little bubbles.
yes it could be worse. at least I’m still drinking it normally rather than injecting it through a G tube.
wish i could stand a nice glass of porto, tried it and
it tastes like antifreeze.
Just seeing the name "Genessee" brings bile up my throat.
Makers mark...wild turkey...yuengling...homebrew wine... and apple jack.
I think it’s a safe assumption that Genny has brought quite a diverse amount of things into peoples throats.
Bile, lunch, dinner, Doritos, pizza....
But it also caused amnesia. Because a few hours later we did it all again ;)
Luckily roaches are not as common as they were in the Bronx. I haven’t seen a single one since we moved to Long Island in 1980.
10 in 10 years? What about other bugs. I’m a total bug phobe. Lucky for me, my Mary loves to catch and eat(ew)anything that moves.
You could only imagine the dreadful scene when I have to take a spider out. Oh, the horror!
I had a burrito last week that tasted like chemicals (are you reading thi TACO CASA??), so I tossed it and had a taco instead....
For me, the joy is... NO SNOW AND LITTLE COLD.
And a red state with actual firearms rights.
Yep. I've only found it at Winn Dixie though (when it's not sold out).
Put it like this: I have never regretted my move. Nothing could convince me to move back to New York. Nothing.
