(KING 5 News)   Americans drink nearly equal amounts alcohol and soda. Which is ridiculous, since cocktails need only a splash of soda   (king5.com) divider line 63

ConstitutionGuy: the only soft drink that I drink is Coke (sometimes Coke Zero) so why shouldn't I call it 'Coke'?


You should. The problem comes when you use "Coke" as a term for all soft drinks, like my dipshiat cousins from Atlanta.

Nogale: peewinkle: At one of my old watering holes, they would pour my Jack and Coke by filling the glass with ice, fill with Jack and pour a shot glass of Coke from a two-liter bottle in just to give it some color. I miss the old days; Jack was still 86-proof and the drinks were $2.50. RIP Shark Tank.

/boycott Jack now, Beam Black or Evan.
//though I usually drink Cherry Smirnoff with a splash of AZ tea, the Black and White, it's not as sweet as the others.
//CSB

Why?


Because they went from 92-proof to 86-proof (which was okay, sort of) but when they dropped it to 80-proof, well to me you may as well just drink some Southern Comfort. Too sweet, no bite, complete shiat. Evan Williams tastes better and it's half the price.

Counting my empties, I'm at 7:5 in favour of alcohol (mostly beer). Given the price of alcohol around here, I probably should do somethiong about that...

When I ask for a whiskey+soda, I mean for the whiskey to be served on the rocks while poured in view of a soda container or fountain somewhere.

Skywolf Philosopher: I call the both of them 'bubbly'. And I hate drinking either. Riddle me this: Why the hell would you drink stuff that either jacks up your health or jacks up your mind (if you don't exercise moderation)? Why take that risk?


Sorry, bubbly is reserved for champers.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll be finding new brands now...

I like to drink rum & coke, more specifically Kraken & coke.

vermicious k'nid: As someone whose 2 drinks a night are both 1/2 vodka and 1/2 soda, this is relevant to my alcoholism.


Amatuer! at my high point I was downing at least 1 1/2 fifths of vodka a day, working full time and never, ever quite sober, even first thing in the morning when I woke up.

/not that this is a good thing
//It was a VERY bad thing

Pretty sure my liquor to soft drink ratio is something like 100:1

I drink my whiskey with an ice cube or two. Bourbon and single malt scotch is where it's at. Time for some Maker's Mark.

Are you sober now, or did you just cut back?

Over ice with a twist. Yum.

Porous Horace: Am I the only one who likes Campari and milk?


Yes. You must be destroyed.
