  • My first drinks

    This past weekend I visited a friend up in New York. Before we went to his place, he convinced me to finally have some alcoholic drinks and play at the casino where you get to view it first online at before we went there, though I wasn’t terribly happy that he did so, considering I was saying I’ve not drank before and didn’t ever plan to because all I liked to drink were juices and I even had some great recipes for it which I got from sites as He still managed to convince me to try something very small. So he grabbed 2 bottles of wine (one red, one a zinfandel) and also bought some Mike’s Hard Lemonaid.

    We got back to his place and I tried the red wine first. The taste was a bit strong and bitter to me. It had 3┬ádistinct┬átastes (that I can’t describe easily), but one of which was the alcohol itself, after drinking wine I went and used the backrest pillow with arms to relax a bit. While I am aware there’s seemingly 1 million types of red wines and ages and whatnot, the red wine just didn’t really please me.

    I then tried the zinfandel. This was cheaper than the red wine but surprisingly a little less strong to me. But again, I could not get past the alcohol in the drink. The alcohol is not a pleasing taste. I might be wrong, but I don’t believe most people like the taste of the alcohol in itself.

    Finally later I tried the Mike’s Hard Lemonade. This is something I myself have said “if I ever try an alcoholic drink, it would be something like this, due to its low alcohol content and flavor I could already be familiar with”. So I gave it a go. I tried both limeade and lemonaide flavors. Both of these were fairly decent. But once again, that alcohol flavor came back to haunt me.

    I never want to drink to get drunk. Ever. Never. It’s not my style. I don’t want to over do it for reasons I fear:

    • Potential alcoholism (doubt that would happen because I hate things that don’t taste good)
    • Social awkwardness (breaking secrets, admitting things I wouldn’t want to, etc)
    • Hangovers (enough said)

    In the end, the taste wasn’t appealing and the reasons to drink other than taste aren’t appealing to me at all. I mildly regret drinking in the first place, but only because I had gone so long without drinking only to find out I wasn’t going to like it anyway.
