It got me thinking about my go-to-drinks of the past and what is says about me during that time of my life. Please be warned. I did consume alcohol before my 21st birthday (actually WELL before).
Here is my hit list:
14 years (shameful, I know)- Boone’s Strawberry Hills. I was trying look like I was in high school, even though I appeared to be a small child…all 80 pounds of me.
16 years- Keystone Light. Sadly, it didn’t matter that it tasted horrible.
19 years- Coors Light in a bottle. Paid the extra dollars for glass bottles
21 years- a Midori Sour. Is there any alcohol in that drink? Fairly certain there isn’t, but I knew I wanted to be drinking cocktails-not beer.
23 years – a shot of Tequila. Straight to the bar once I got in the bar. I needed to get the night started right!
25 years – a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. I was living in the Bay Area and knew nothing about wine. Hated every single sip of it! Thankfully, I discovered Cabs are not the only wine to drink.
