APRICOT BRANDY JUNIOR PROM

Question Of The Week 10-22-17

What and where was your first alcoholic drink?

I was 21...bought a bottle of sherry, brought it home to Mom and Dad, we each had a sip. Nothing after that until much much much later. I still rarely take a drink. If I do it will be a dry white wine and usually only half a glass. I really don`t enjoy alcohol.

A tiny glass of creme d'cocoa that my grandmother reserved for a New Year's Eve toast. I was maybe 16 or 17.

Beer. I was 16, two carloads of us had a party at a nearby state park. Good times.

A bottle of Miller High Life beer, a buddy of mine got it from...I don't remember where but we sat on the rock on top of Paris Mountain and enjoyed the view while sipping the beer, we had to be around 16.

Beer as a kid a home with my folks and more of just a few sips.
I don't even remember how I got it - but my friend and I drank something called Swizzle when we were freshmen in college. No damage done tho.

I have no idea! As a kid but I can't remember where or how old I was.


I think the older kids let me 'share' by the time I was 7 or 8. We grandchildren sat in the stairwell and borrowed chugs off the gallon of Mogan David there.
Real paid for drink was gin and orange when I was 15 or 16. I was with my sister at a 'nicer' bar.


Glass of sherry at Thanksgiving, when I was about 16. Hated it, still do.

Boones Farm Strawberry Hill wine, Columbia, South Carolina.

My friend and I went to visit her sister and brother-in-law, who lived on campus at the University of SC. He took us to a nearby bar and we were underage (17 years old) - I'm not sure how we got away with that.

I was 16 and my best friend and I hit her parents stash of Gin when they were gone. I got blotto, her not so much.

I don't remember. I have never really drunk much alcohol, and these days drink less. A glass of wine is nice, but I can feel the effects very quickly


I'm sure it was a ((very)) small glass of deep red wine at a Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparen't house.

I don't really remember, but when I turned 21 an old friend, a guy, took me out for a night of drinking to celebrate. No one else cared!

Oh...I can't remember. I'm sure I had a sip of something belonging to my mother or grandmother when I was a kid.

I do clearly remember my first ever Scotch. I was at a friend's place...those there were older than I was....I was 16. We were sitting around on the floor listening to jazz.

A fellow...who years later became my first husband, as it eventuated...was drinking Scotch, straight, no ice, no mixes. It was in a white porcelain tea cup for some unknown reason.

I asked him what he was drinking and he passed it to me to try.

I liked Scotch from that very first sip.

Shandy in the lounge area of a pub when I was five or six. It's a 50/50 beer and lemonade mix, acceptable for kids in those days. I didn't like it much and opted for plain lemonade after that. Tried a sherry at a wedding once and really disliked it. Years later bought a pina colada at some other 'do' and liked that but only drank about half.

I had no alcohol until my Junior year of college when I visited my now husband and his apartment mates at his college. Let's just say, I drank everything they gave me, and I lived to regret it. After that it was years before I took another drink

Rum and coke when I was a kid at one of the famous Cuban parties my folks used to have in our fancy basement. I had two sips and that was it! Hated it. Still don’t like rum all that much

I have not tried it...

A whole drink as opposed to a sip of someone else's? A little embarrassed to say it was two years ago when I met the Boy Scout and got "tipsy" for the first time. I was 52.

1/2 a Mai Tai and I could barely walk.

  23. Way late in life. Was a non-drinker until my late 20's/early 30's. First drink that I tried/drank was a rum and coke, then didn't really drink again until my 40's and even then, I averaged about 4 shots a year. Haven't touched since 2008 when I had to increase my insulin.
