I accidentally drank a Rum & Coke at a party when I was a wee little child. :3

IT WAS IN A RED COKE CUP OK

I think it's an acquired taste. I know at first I didn't really like beer, and I still don't like wine unless it's white wine, but now I love it! as i've probably made clear lol

Tom said he's going to have me like beer. I said I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on nice beer that I'm not even going to enjoy to begin with because I need to adjust to the unique taste of beer and he said he would find it a worthwhile investment to buy me beer so I can get used to it. >_o

I just can't get out of the mindset where I see "bitter" as a universally negative adjective. He uses it all the time for the beers he loves and I'm like "WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DRINK SOMETHING IF IT'S BITTER?!"

    I know. I used to hate the taste of wine, now I enjoy certain types of white wine, it's nice with food. I still don't like beer though.

    I've read that the earlier you're exposed to alcohol the greater the chances that you'll become an addict. Glad I didn't take up the offers of any of my drunk uncles when I was younger.

    Drank a few shots of Gin by accident.

    Was 8, on trip back from Grandmas. Get thirsty, see water bottle. Think it's water. Drink deeply.

    Throwing up for rest of the way home.

      I probably had like champagne since I was 4. The worst was when dad was like "It's Lemoncello! It's nice. It's like lemonade" when I was like 10. >_> That stuff BURNED going down. Ugh.. never again.

        I'm one of the few people who has actually never had alcohol. It's not that I think it's wrong to have a drink every now and then (so long as you don't get plastered) but, knowing myself, I'd probably be one of those people who takes one drink and winds up on another planet. And with all the driving I have to do, probably not a good idea. XD

          I think a good way to edge you into it is if you try a wine tasting class/ course. I did one for my cousin's bachelorette. It's more about the flavour than the alcohol. I hate wine but I enjoyed it- so here's me recommending it to you :3

          Also idk about anyone else but my first experience with being even tipsy was at home alone with just my boyfriend. That way I could test to see my limits and wouldn't have to worry about driving and such hahah.

            When I don't eat first just 1-2 rum & cokes gets me tipsy. But idk how much alcohol is in those because I don't measure it anymore now that I'm used to making them myself, haha. I guess between 1 and 2 shots?

            Well, my other issue is that I just don't...even really like the smell of alcohol, so I can't imagine how it tastes. And when people say that beer tastes like piss it doesn't really make me inclined to try it.

            Have fruit punch vodka and orange soda! Doesn't taste like alcohol at all! :3 Rum & Cokes do though. So don't have one of those!

              I don't either.. Like I said, maybe a wine tasting class you'd find nice. The least it would do is inform you if you dont like it. And you dont have to drink it all- just a few sips from each glass. You wouldnt be offending anyone if you didn't like it that way.

              I dont like rum and coke.. too strong for me.

              That's why I like Mojitos.. Can't taste any alcohol whatsoever.

                Sorry, but I have to bring it up every time you mention it. But mojitos are very nice indeed. Had my first at the Notting Hill carnival out of a coconut, and would heartily recommend it to everyone of legal drinking age! :D
