Re: The 10 Commandments For Drinking Like A Man

As a drinking snob I concur with this list, with a few qualifications.

1. All whiskey is not equal. Real men have a whiskey palate sophisticated enough to distinguish between a single malt and Dewar's.
2. Real men must appreciate all non-mass-produced beer. Drinking Bud Light is neither sophisticated nor manly. I guess it's ok at a baseball game, but it shouldn't be in your fridge.
3. Real drinkers have figured out that most wine connoisseurs are full of shit (Why More Expensive Wine Tastes Better - Alpha Consumer (usnews.com)). Yet we are thrilled when we meet one of the few who is not.
4. Dry gin martini is the coolest drink ever. If you don't like it you are a sucker. Also, martini does not refer to the shape of a glass, so don't serve some goofy cocktail in a martini looking glass and slap tini on the end of the name and think you are fooling anyone. A martini is what it is, like oxygen or a reuben. Gin, a little vermouth, and a garnish. That's it. HL Mencken once called the martini the only American invention as perfect as the sonnet so make sure to keep it traditional.
5. Neat cognac is great.
6. Scotch is the greatest human invention, but you should be able to roll with straight bourbon too when the situation calls for it.

if wine is ok, then nothing can be excluded because nothing says "i'm gay" more than a glass of wine. you might as well have a fridge full of zimas or wine coolers.


men drink whiskey or beer, women drink wine. notice the two MALE smilies are toasting beer mugs, not wine glasses.

Exactly. This isn't much of a list of MAN rules if wine is permitted. I'm not claiming to be mister macho, but the entire credibility of the list goes out the window if we include wine.

Wine is a far cry from wine coolers or zima... not even in the same zip code.

That's like comparing a good beer to a cheap 40 oz.

Re: The 10 Commandments For Drinking Like A Man

What about the idea that a sweet white wine is girlie but a stout dry red wine is manly?

i gotta disagree. commandment #5 says appreciate all forms of beer. wine coolers are a form of wine.

just face it , the list is totally wrong and completely contradictory. no fruity drinks, wine is ok, any free drink is ok. what?

Re: The 10 Commandments For Drinking Like A Man

One can appreciate all forms of beer, nothing wrong with that even a cheap beer has it's place. But a good beer and a cheap 40 oz are simply two completely different things. Much like comparing wine to a wine cooler or zima, they're not even in the same ballpark.

Obviously if you don't drink wine you can't appreciate it. I was once a hater so I can relate, but once I found some wines that I actually liked I was like ok, I get it now.

This. If you're going to make sweeping generalizations about wine, you should probably try some and see what you might like. Someone referred to wine as fruity, I don't drink fruity tasting wine. However, I used to hate on wine too until I found a lot of wines that I enjoy drinking.

Also, wine generally goes better with a lot of the foods I like to eat than beer that I enjoy drinking does.

Seems to me like if it tastes bad and is an "acquired" taste, that somehow makes it more manly.

That seems to go for beers, wine, liquor, etc.

I'm not going to lie... I buy Bud Light when I want to drink to get drunk. My wife buys two buck Chuck when we want to get drunk and I buy Jim Beam and mix it with Diet Coke when I want liquor.

That's not to say I don't absolutely love a microbrew or Maker's on the rocks, but I got no shame in what I enjoy normally.

I'm with you on #4 except I prefer a vodka martini. I love a good gin & tonic, but in my martini I love vodka. And it definitely has to be a traditional martini. The "appletini or chocotini" crap they have at places like Friday's doesn't count.

Re: The 10 Commandments For Drinking Like A Man

The question isn't whether or not you guys, or anybody, enjoys wine. The question is whether it's manly. The definition of manly isn't based on acquired taste or whatever, it's best defined as the opposite of what women like. You don't often see women drinking whiskey, therefore it is the manliest of drinks.

As with everything in life, everything is relative:

Whiskey (in its various forms) is the manliest of drinks. Beer is a little less manly, because women will drink it but tend to go for something else.

Wine is not as manly as those because women go for it. But the right wine can be more manly than an Appletini or a fuzzy navel.

Just because you're a man, and you like it, doesn't make it a manly drink!
