Yes, it's a real drink.  It looks cool because the three ingredients are layered.  You need a whiskey, a liqueur, and a cream mix.  I use Jack Daniels, amaretto almond liqueur, and Bailey's Irish…Continue

Never had wine before but I'm looking to try it. However every time I visit the store to buy it I get so intimidated by all the selection that I just put it off. Any suggestions for my first wine/s to try?

What I discovered is that I don't care for alcohol ...just not a drinker. Follow your instincts and be true to what you feel. You might like it "socially" and feel comfortable there, but you're not "required" to drink because your an ex-mo. ;-)

The way we learned, me and my wife, what we liked to drink  was to a book an all inclusive resort in Jamaca  there the drinks are included and it was wonderful we tried a lot of different drinks. I read a tip that when you are are going to drink a lot is to have one drink then drink the same amount of water which we did and had a great time, found out what we like to drink. We have visited a couple of resorts and plan to go back. My wife loves Margaritas, Pina Coladas, I like drinks with Vodka. we drank a lot of other that we like but couldn't tell you what was in them but they were good!!

YUM, Casey!  

MU, "bitch beer" is what my kids call wine coolers... Mike's Hard, Smirnoff Ice, etc.

My new favorite drink is whipped cream flavored vodka and orange juice. It tastes like a creamsicle or orange julius. :) Just be careful not to drink too much - it's easy when it tastes like candy! :)

Haven't heard of nor tried "bitch beer" wiggles.  If it's what you like, don't let anyone else tell you otherwise

I need help.  Apparently I think "bitch beer" is the REAL McCoy, and I've been shamed and shunned by my sons due to this infraction.


Thanks for givin' a mom a hand, Micah!
