    I don't know what your beer selection is there, but here we have a couple decent ones... Presidente is pretty decent, and Kubuli has a decently refreshing taste

    friend got me a bottle of this
    excited to try it!

    I wasn't talking about hard cider which I generally don't care for.

    You should keep drinking it.

    Think of all the comedic places you could have said you woke up in!

    Hell it could be the plot to a whole summer comedy blockbuster.

    I dont like the coffee analogy. I dont like black coffee, and typically either need a flavored coffee or heavy cream and sugar to drink it, but that makes it taste different.

    With booze + fruit juice or something really sweet its like i have two different things in my mouth and i distinctly taste both, they just dont mix, and even if the proportions really offsided (all i need is an eyedropper full of vodka in a glass of orange juice and I can tell.) So I asked mostly as a curiosity.

    The coffee analogy fits pretty well, though. You seem to have a particular sensitivity to the taste of alcohol, but for most people the addition of juice or soda or whatever really does mask the alcohol taste. Most "girly drinks" or whatever, like a lemon drop or a cosmo or an appletini, are popular because you can hardly taste the alcohol in them at all.

    For most other people, an eyedropper amount of vodka in a glass of orange juice tastes mostly like orange juice. Rum and coke tastes like flavored coke. Wine coolers taste like lightly carbonated juice drinks.

    I'm the same way with coffee
    I can't even have chocolate that has coffee in it :( Just ruins it for me

    I have a friend who is like the OP with alcohol.
    For some it's just a matter of finding something you like, for others it's just not really possible. No biggie.

    It wasn't all that special. Apparently I stood in a parking lot and stared at a couple making out in their car for awhile. Took a whiz on some other dudes car who I didn't know.

    Friends grabbed me and took me back in the bar but I made a daring escape...and woke up the next morning 10 miles away in some random lawn.

    No more hard liquor after that.

    I'm a big beer fan. My dad used to do some casual microbrew and I grew up around the stuff. My parents were close friends with the dudes who made this brewing company. So it makes me really sad that my girlfriend hates beer. She'll go for plenty of sweet mixed drinks, but I think the bitterness in most of the beer I drink throws her off. I've tried just about everything at least once and I don't think there's anything she's been able to stand beyond a single sip. The closest I got was a porter that might as well have been 50% coffee.

    My mix drink, "The Master's Cup". Get a can of Arnold Palmer tea/lemonade, drink some of it. Refill the empty space with the alcohol of your choice. My personal preference is equal parts gin, rum and vodka.

    i think that's called a John Daly

    It is. It's a great term. There's also no "Cup" in the Masters.

    and a delicious drink!

    I am like the OP, except there are some liquors I do like, sweet girly drinks with very little alcohol. But I haven't the money to buy liquor and my friends don't like the same drinks so whatever.

    As far as beer goes, my family has ruined it for me. And they are ruining it for my sister and cousins as well. At parties, they switch out our drinks with beer or something when we aren't looking (pouring out the contents, or subbing a glass of like-colored liquor product) and wait for us to inadvertently drink it. All of us do the "UGGHH" face and they all laugh.

    They can not have the satisfaction of me ever liking it :?

    I recently had the opportunity to try the Amber Ale and IPA from Eel River brewing company, that shit is amazing. The difference in taste between those beers and equivalent big brands I've had is like the difference in taste between a bursting-with-condiments-and-veggies monster sub & a plain meat'n'bread sandwich.

    What no.

    Adding ice waters it down too much and numbs your tongue so you can taste it even less.

    I mean if you're drinking cheap and nasty stuff then yeah you want to disguise the taste, but then you're probably better off mixing it with something else.

    I can still taste a good whiskey just fine with the temperature brought down a little and it burns less. It's not like I wait till the ice is all melted.

    On the rare occasion I get something very expensive I'll sip on it neat though.
