Probably good I'm not a parent because I could never say "mommy juice" with a straight face.

"There had been no apple juice served on this day"

Because no child should remember anything that's happened on a previous day. Like, say, that apple juice is farking amber colored like American beer. If your kid can't remember on a daily basis what apple juice looks like (AND you expect them to have daily amnesia), ya might wanna start looking into long-term care homes before they forget that they have to chew before swallowing & fire is hot.

When I was a kid, my Dad used to come home from work and have a couple toddies, work the crossword puzzle, etc...One late afternoon at dinner, my family of five are all crammed around the table like we did every night. We are all drinking iced tea, but my Dad has his bourbon &water right next to his (and my) tea. I accidentally grabbed it and took a giant slug. I didn't spit it out, but I'm sure I made a face. Nobody noticed. I could feel that warmth flowing through my veins, and a few minutes later I did it on purpose. And that was when everything changed...

I think the advice was pointless. The child drank some beer because she thought it was apple juice. What's the point of asking her the following: "Hey, when you accidentally drank that nasty stuff the other day, you weren't being silly and doing it on purpose, were you?" The child is too young to parse that, IMO. She picked up a glass and drank on purpose; she accidentally drank beer.

Without knowing the brand of beer involved, I don't think we have enough information to pass judgement. More research needed

Second q was more likely to produce a farker.

Mommy sounds like an overly dramatic  busybody. This child will defiantly become an alcoholic. Thus a Farker. There is no cure.

My thoughts exactly.

Back when I was a young lad, most cough medicine contained a lot of alcohol.  I snuck a swig of that quite often

Over 30 years ago, I came home one summer day from work (office mgr/acct at a drywall &painting contractor) with a couple cans of beer courtesy of the crews at the beer-thirty after work 'meeting.' The beer was Budweiser but when it's cool and free, I'm not one to turn it down. I decide to be civilized and I pour it into a tall glass.
My four year old looks at it intently and asks if she can have a taste.
I'm remembering myself as a child taking tastes of that lovely foam from Dad's beer.
"OK, Katie," I say. "But this is Budweiser beer. It's not made for kids. You can taste some of the foam."
She takes a mouth full of foam and grimmaces violently.
"Don't. Like. That. Bug Water!"
"That's all right, Katie," I say as I'm trying to keep from cracking up, "You never have to taste it again if you don't want to."

To this day, she avoids any drink that has a strong alcohol taste. I've seen her take the occasional black cherry White Claw.
