When someone asks you “What is your favorite drink?” – do you automatically think they are referring to an alcoholic drink? Well – I do; and that’s where I take pause. I’m not a big drinker. Typically people talk about coming home from work and having a drink or a beer… I come home from work and grab a glass of milk. Is that weird?
If I had to name a favorite drink – I would have a hard time with that. My favorite would be dependent upon the situation. For example – after work, it would be a glass of milk. If I was out at a bar – it would be Southern Comfort & 7-up. At a fancy place – it would probably be a glass of wine and if it was after a work-out – it would be a glass of water (but that one doesn’t happen a lot!)
I don’t like anything bitter. Beer is a definite NO Thanks!! When I drink wine – it has to be a sweet wine. That’s why I love Southern Comfort – it’s very sweet.
When you compare me to my family – I am the light-weight of the family. Judy is pretty much a light-weight too. The others, like Mom & Lisa – like to have their drinks and they like them strong. Yuck! Mine need to be pretty weak if I’m going to be able to drink it.
SoCo & 7-up
Now, back to my favorite alcoholic drink. Southern Comfort & 7-up. I developed my love of this in college. I used to drink it like water and of course I got VERY sick on it. One time, I remember coming home for a weekend and Dad held a glass of something under my nose stating ” ‘Chelle – smells this. It smells like roses.” OMG – I almost lost it right there. It was a glass of straight Southern Comfort. I didn’t drink it again for many years.
Then it was Mom & Dad’s 40th wedding anniversary party and Grandma Doris, Dad and I finished off a VERY large bottle of SoCo ourselves. Again – I was VERY sick the next day. As a result, I’ve finally learned to drink it in moderation – Sometimes.
I guess I’d have to say I have 2 favorite drinks – the first being milk and the second would be SoCo & 7-up. How is that for diametric opposites? Well – that’s typical for a Sidetracked Sister – don’t you think?
