So recently I've gotten into a debate on just what makes a girly drink a girly drink. I want your thoughts on this. Is it as simple as "has a mixer" or is it "uses sugar" or "can't taste the booze til you're on the floor"?

All this started with an argument over a Mojito by the way.

It seems like the "girly drinks" are not necessarily the mixers, but those that you don't really taste the alcohol (Midori sour, starburst, adios motherfucker, etc). They tend to be more fruity or creamy (a white russian can be considered one, but usually isn't, but a mudslide tends to be).

Hey, I love white russians, and I usually hate vodka! I think it has to be from the fact that I'm a dairy nut.

I think that most "girly" drinks taste less like alcohol than other drinks, usually by adding other flavors, or by having a lower alcohol content such as wine coolers.

A "girly" drink is still somewhat of a loose term, it probably depends more upon your present drinking company than anything else.

As far as I know, there's two types of arguments I've had for said "girly drinks"

There was the one in which you guys have already presented, the "if you can't taste the alcohol, it's a girly drink."

But then there's the proverbial "Well...." **leans over to peer in the fridge, gut falling over belt, the usual butt crack sticking out.** "...if it ain't beer, it's fer you gerlies."

Pff, beer is hardly only a man drink! In fact, it was a female who introduced me to Rogue Dead Guy Ale!

Rum is more manly, that's for sure, though I know plenty of ladies who love a good rum n' coke!

Rum is the King. I love mixing that with absolutely anything and everything, and it never fails.

I think another argument for the "girly drinks" is if they're "fruity" or not, like Mike's Hard Lemonade. I dunno.

But for me, I just like making fun of some of my buds when it comes to drinking. Like if someone is drinking a Mike's Hard ... yeah they're not bad but I'm sorry, it's just funny for some reason.

I do the same thing to my friends, mostly because they get so drunk that they can't come up with a wittier response!

Luckily, I have the sugar issue card. It depends on the day I'm having. Beer can sometimes make my sugar go either high or low, so I avoid that. Besides, I can't stand beer.

Mike's Hard drinks, and other wine koolers seem to be the best for me and my sugar (and personally, I like them best so far. XD)

I mean, I'm sure alcohol isn't good for anyone with sugar issues, but I watch VERY carefully what I drink, and eat around that time, and honestly, I don't drink all that much. For instance: fun fact, that drunk feeling you get? Yeah, that's what one feels like when their sugar drops. I'm actually almost certain that most alcoholic drinks DO lower the sugar, or raise it possibly, and that's where the feeling comes from.

I remember drinking once in high school and thinking "Wait, this is FUN to you guys? Whenever I felt like this, I always had to get a needle for insulin. This sucks."

Although, I will say this, if you don't want to get made fun of for your drinks, so far, tackling the crap outta someone in front of everyone embarasses them enough to never make fun of you again, no matter how much of a "sissy" you are for drinking "girly" drinks.

I would think that given the sugar content in most drinks that it would be raising your sugar.

So, to go back to that mojito... the person I am debating with says it is because there is traditionally powdered sugar in it. Yet you taste that tequila, and a lot of times I've had it without the sugar (or with it on the rim). Verdict?

When one's sugar is quickly raised, such as with an alcoholic beverage, it can drop, very quickly, in a very short amount of time. Hence the drunk feeling, according to doctors. Yet the yeast in beer raises it, so I'm even kinda like "Erm...wtf?"

You know, the actual mojito is an interesting one. We could go on about what the typical "girly" drinks are, but, I even asked a few of my friends. Some stubbornly declared that tasting the tequila doesn't make it a girly drink. Especially since most of us never had it with the sugar. So I'm going to go with a "no" too, I guess.

I guess the final verdict is if they're bothering you, just punch them in the face. Publicly. Then you've earned the right to drink whatever you want without being hassled as being too "girly" XD XD XD.

Girly....drinks?


No such thing for me.

Unless you consider drinking crappy mass produced North American beer as manly

I like my alcohol to be good, thank you.

I'm so ridiculously feminine when it comes to drinking. I won't enjoy it unless I can't taste ANY alcohol. I would MUCH prefer to chug a shot and drink something non alcoholic and enjoyable right after.

As pretty much everyone has said, I've always thought of "girly drinks" as drinks that you can barely, or not at all, taste the alcohol.

This discussion reminds me of the debates we have during the Beer of The Day announcement.

We all have come to an agreement. "We want alcohol."

Have you ever spent days and days and days making up flavors of ice cream that no ones ever eaten before? Like chicken and telephone ice cream?...Green mouse ice cream was the worst.

To me a girly drink was not so much on the taste as the look. The so called girly drink are usually rather colorful and have extra embellishment, such a cherries, umbrellas, slices of fruit, but they are not necessary. I say it's more on look than taste though because something that normally would be considered girly due to lack of alcohol taste, would still be considered girly if the alcohol content was increased *recalls last Pina Colada she had....or the blurry memories of what happened afterward*

But in the end, as most of you have agreed, so long as the job gets done, it matters not if it girly or not.
