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.
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.
I like the firearms rights, as well as the red. Now you have me in the same state I was contemplating TX or SC!!
