Girlie Drinks

Thursday I spent the night at an Adult Friend’s house. No sex, but some serious heavy petting. During dinner (he cooked!) he asked if I wanted something to drink.

“A glass of wine?”

“Or I have a Corona”
Even better

“I also have some Mike’s Hard Lemonade”

I didn’t think about it at the time but looking back I suppose he was a little embarrassed by the fact that he had the latter in his refrigerator because he spent about 10 minutes explaining it. He hadn’t bought it. Some woman he had been seeing had brought it and left it there. He only keeps it in case female company stops by. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

What’s the big deal about keeping a tasty alcoholic beverage in your refrigerator? I have yet to see (heterosexual) man order a Cosmopolitan or a Green Apple Martini. Is there something about fruity flavors or pretty colors that lowers their testosterone level? I for one like getting wasted on something that tastes like soda pop or Kool-Aid.

Non Sequitur: For the past week AdultFriendFinder has been screwing with my profile. First they deleted my profile info, then my location, now they have me listed as “prefer not to say” with regards to gender. What the fuck! Is anyone else having problems?

Things to be Happy About:
Wine Glasses
The Color Yellow
Tiny Little Birds
Black Lights
Berber Carpet

Frogger, very true.

If a guy gets a martinin, it is more likelyto be either 'dirty' or to contain bleu cheese stuffed olives.

I personally like tasty drinks. My problem occurs when I try to haethem all in one evening (ya know a beer starter, red wine and then sometimes a chocolate martini)

Next day ... aaarrrgghhhh

I have to admit I laughed when one of my co-worker's boyfriend's told me he liked to drink Cosmopolitans. I said "Wasn't that what the ladies from Sex and the City drank?"

My favorite drink is raspberry smirnoff twisters. Does that make me less of a man?

My favorite drinks are either a "fuzzy navel" or a "white russian".
Mikes Hard Lemonade is always in my fridge and I bought it and put it there. I am not gay nor bi. I am just not ashamed of my "pussy drink" preference. sigh.

I am not dead yet

Only thing I won't drink is tequila (unless it's Tequila Rose or in Margarita form), and that's because the one time I shot it, I nearly puked for two hours (meaning I spent two hours on the brink of vomiting, not that I vomited for 1:59). I've never tried a Cosmo or a Mai Tai, or anything else considered a "chick drink," mostly because I don't go to bars that much. The only bar I'm a regular at is my American Legion post, and they don't serve those things. When I get out of this rinky-dink town, or at least go to a bar in the city, I may try one. Money and location stop me more than masculine insecurity.

Frogger...Make mine McCallan 12 or 15 year-old single malt scotch, about 3 fingers worth over the rocks with just a splash of water so people don't think I have a drinking problem!

I agree with you, frogger - I would rather drink something that tastes good and without the flavor of alcohol, then try to maintain a 'masculine' image and not enjoy my drinking (and possibly get sick..)

When I was on dart league, I used to get so much shit from the guys for drinking cherry vodka and 7-Up - but I didn't care one bit. It was my money, and it tasted just like cherry soda... Yummy!

Well guess I am the unusual case. I have ordered a pear martini before. As a matter of fact it was very very good. So guess I must be the exception to your thinking. But then I always take a different road than the norm. LOL

I don't really see what the problem is with Mike's Hard Lemonade -- After all, it does have the word "Hard" in the title!

Seriously, there is a stereotype about fruity beverages and being feminine. Real men are supposed to drink scotch, whiskey, and beer, whilst women are supposed to stick to wine coolers, and fuzzy navels. The crux of it comes down to the ability to swallow something that burns your throat--AKA being manly. There is something extremely macho about drinking fluids that have a kick, but don’t taste good (moonshine anyone?).

To put it into a perspective that we can all agree on: women have enough to worry about when swallowing semen, so they really have nothing to prove by drinking Everclear.

I say, keep up the good work with the semen, be proud of drinking your sugary drinks, and let the macho men fall where they may…

The more fuitier and the brighter colour they are, the more they scare us. However, this can be the quickest and more enjoyable ways to get wasted quickly .

I think like all things it has to do with masculinity.

A guy might not always drink beer, but he damn sure doesn't want anyone else to know it.

I must admit that while I don't really care for beer, I have tried Corona to see if its something I can drink.

I can tolerate it, so if I was at a bar and impressions were trying to be made, I'd probably order it or a jack and coke.

I guess its just another area in life men are a little sensitive about.

But then again, alcohol and sports go together, so it makes sense.

That's my two cents,

While I've never ordered a Cosmopolitan or a Green Apple Martini, it isn't entirely due to not wanting a girly drink. I think I just never had on interest or thought about ordering one. I actually like some of the 'girly' drinks and will drink them if I feel like. I've taken shit from other guys for grabbing a wine cooler or Mike's, but I drink what I like. Fuck them. Sometimes I just want something refreshing and beers or hard liquors just do that for me. Now most of the time I drink Guiness or rum and Cokes, so maybe that gives some slack, but I've had what I drink become an issue.

Sorry your having trouble with Hotmatch (I gather your not the only one) and we can figure out your gender...easily sexy! You can take me out drinking anytime

Some of those women drinks are just nasty though. Out at the bar one time, the girls were all ordering Blow Jobs. I tried one. Yuck! Those are way too sweet.

It's interesting that you mention drinks that taste like Kool-Aid being considered girly drinks. It reminds me of a drink we'd order in the Philippians called a Mojo. Don't remember everything that was in it, but it tasted like Kool-Aid and one pitcher would put three guys on there ass. Didn't seem to have any stigma associated with drinking it either (except for maybe getting taken back to ship by the MPs)

Okay Dear Frogger.. how ANYONE could NOT determine your gender with one GLANCE is a fool <sigh>. You are a VISION of femininity... you are the epitome of the Female !!

I am STRAIGHT... and have ordered Cosmos'... I've even consumed one or two Glad he had your "Mike's"... and glad you had a good night.

Keep on typing... I love to read your words and thoughts.

I think it is the first time I disagree with you on something. Who would choose a Mike's Hard Lemonade over a Corona, or even more, over a glass of red wine?

Yours, Ewan

Lots of straight guys orders drinks like that so I don't see what the problem is.

BTW, I had a problem once with my profile 'disappearing' and 'deleted' once. Yep it sucked .

I like most any drink except beer. I drink it with the guys because some pubs only serve it and wine. I grew up in the wine country and have lot's of it on hand, but I don't drink it when I'm at a club. Long Island Iced Tea is my drink of choice. Tasty and powerful and I can walk to many of the clubs so no worries about driving. I was known to order Pina Coloda's at a bar in Colorado. I think I'll have some for Halloween.

It sounds to me like the dude's having a sexual identity crisis. Mebbe he has pics in his head of Mike's Hard Penis in his mind and just wouldn't suck on the bottle. I'll bet he won't wear pink shirts either.

Anything related to fruit is classified as girly or feminine. It is unfortunate that gender must also be aplied to drinks. I enjoy the hard lemonades more then most beers. But you will find guys keep the fruity, feminine drinks because they like them, but will say it is for any women they may have over.

I had a problem a few weeks back with my gender being changed. It went from male to female to prefer not to say over a 2 day period. I had to write AdultFriendFinder to get it fixed.

Thanks for helping out a clueless guy Frogger - I now have the fridge stocked with a fruity wine cooler beverage and hard lemonade *wink*.

Geez, what's wrong the marketing guys - all they need to say is - buy this stuff because women love it. And include the disclaimer:

Warning: Drinking this may result in wild heavy petting.

I don't drink, so I can't say anything about the alcohol portion of the post.

On the site problems, they seem to have constant growing pains and undergoes constant issues.
Example: I'm listed as a man, but my gender doesn't match some women and couples looking for a man. Weird. I even had the admins verify that my gender is man.

So, I guess the problem is simply the tech not keeping up with the demand and things get lost in the cracks.
I think dcebony also had her profile disappear for a while, but it came back.

I like scotch on the rocks or bourbon and water. Personally, I like to taste my liquor. Usually, ladies drinks are fruity, but I think it is just personal preference. Afterall, it's a free country, so you can drink any damn thing you can pay for. I'll drink to that.

I don't drink anymore, but was one helluva drinker for lots of years.

I liked Martinis, very dry. I'd fill my mixer (from Tiffany - I won't tell you how many hundreds of dollars it cost - it was a very stupid purchase I made one day when I was feeling wealthy, and it made me feel less of a drunkie when I used it) with spring water ice, then pour an ounce or so of dry vermouth over the ice. I'd put the strainer on, swirl it around for a moment, then strain the ice - dumping the liquid out - this gave it the proper amount of vermouth. I'd then fill the mixer with Chopin, or Stoli, or Wyberovna, shake, and pour.

The only people I know who like their Martinis "dirty" have breasts & varginas. And olives stuffed with Bleu Cheese? Maybe, if you substitute Gorgonzola for the Bleu, and serve them with a baguette and olive oil... but submerge them in your Martini?!? What the... why would... who the fuck does that?

I had a Green Apple Martini once, I enjoyed it. I've also enjoyed a few Raspberry Martinis, but took those off my list after getting into... er... let's say the bartender and I had a conflict about the raspberries, and I was subsequently escorted outside by the bouncer.

However, never had a Cosmo, and even if I had never quit drinking, I never would have.

For the record, Tequila Rose? Total pussy drink. As are all the lemonades, twisters, coolers, ices, frostys, slurpees, and whatever else they're calling that shite. Why? Many reasons, but chief among them is the fact that they're all basically beer that they take the flavor & color out of, and then pour a bunch of artificial flavorings and high fructose corn syrup in. So when you're drinking one, it's like saying your like this fruity milky-licker better than clean, all-natural beer.

And a lot of gay guys would agree with me on this point.

Frogger, If your entertaining a Lady, a man should have something along the lines of a fruity drink to offer her. Men are taught to chug beer, slam shots etc. Not really enjoy/drink but consume alcohol!

love a banana daq made with heavy cream and a couple of marachinos!
but just don't drink'em, and boy you should see the bartenders face/eyes when they get the order!!

Been having the same location update problem for the past 6 days, every time I log in, yellow shaded box with update your local???

If I go to my hotlist, I am 5000 miles from everyone!!
