Unknown Author on what you choose to drink:

I like to order Martinis. Sometimes I stick with whiskey on ice. My friend likes white wine.

Apparently these drinks say things about us. They say more than “he likes gin.” They’re easy targets. “That’s an alcoholic’s drink,” I’ve heard. “That’s a girl drink.”

I reject that.


A drink isn’t a girl drink or a tough guy drink. It’s your drink. There’s no point in consuming some shitty-tasting rotgut because you want to keep up appearances. Drink what you want.

I wholeheartedly agree. You have no idea how much shit I get for occasionally liking and drinking Apple Martinis.
