    there's a song I remember hearing when I was younger and I'm not sure if the title was Put It In My Mouth but that was the first line of the chorus.

    it wasn't a good night, needless to say
    but it was one of those experiences I would classify as "necessary" to establish a boundary between well rounded drinking and fucking stupid drinking.

    Tanqueray Ten (make sure it's Ten and not regular Tanqueray) is a very smooth, easy-to-drink gin. Vox is a hella smooth, easy-to-drink vodka. And Monte Alban is a hella smooth, delicious Mescal.

    in which class of alcohol?

    Whichever, I guess? I don't really like any of them at the moment, so I guess whichever is easiest to get into. Would that be beer?

    easiest is vodka in my experience because you do need to mix it with other things to make it palatable and cheap vodka is *usually* just as good as the top shelf stuff. (Do not get grain-alcohol vodka. that shit is drain cleaner only!)
    Smirnoff is a relatively cheap brand that makes a great mixed drink.
    The distillation process means that most of the crap that clogs up in your body when you get hungover-- isn't present in vodka. Vodka and just about any citrus juice or cranberry juice is the easiest cocktail in the world to make, and you can modulate the "feel" by adjusting alcohol vs. ice vs. juice, for example. I would not start with martinis though unless you really lie the savory aspect of alcohol.

    I didn't like alcohol much at all until I started mixing vodka drinks, for the record.

    slinger- thanks but I think I explained myself poorly. I do like some mixed drinks, that's not the problem. I just don't like the actual inherent taste of any alcoholic drinks- beer, wine, or liquor unmixed. I mostly don't drink mixed drinks because of the disgusting nutritional value of most mixers. I'm pretty much looking for a beer or wine or straight liquor I can consume in certain social situations without grimacing. I hear about guys sitting in their dens buying scotch that they paid a thousand dollars for... or guys having a beer with dinner every night. That's sort of what I'm thrown by- I don't enjoy those tastes.

    And I sort of want to for social reasons.

    I've never tried an alcohol I liked. I'm not saying alcohol can't taste good but it definitely can't without a mixer of some sort.

    big whoop wanna fight about it

    Kinda, but then you got reasonable. Be warned, it took me about a year to learn to like beer. I don't know if that is normal or not. I do genuinely enjoy it, though. There are times when I am like "Man, a beer would be great right now, but I need my wits about me slash do not want to start getting drunk right now."

    The first alcohol I learned to like was beer, and I am about 2 thirds through learning to like whiskey on the rocks. I buy cheap whiskey, though, because I thought for some reason it would be dumb to spend money on good whiskey while I was still acquiring the taste. I have since come to doubt that logic. The first beer I truly enjoyed was either a Negra Modelo or a New Belgium 1554. I don't recall which. I have since lost my liking for the Negra. Other beers currently on my yes list include Dos Equis, Sam Adams, the Widmer Hefeweizen, and Dundee's Honey Brown. The last is one I believe to be accessible in that few people have disliked it as much as they dislike other beers. Similar to what you described earlier, the sentiment seems to be "well this is a better class of bad than the other bad stuff I drank."

    Also beer and spicy food do not compliment each other at all IMO. And with steak I like to have a vodka martini, icy mixed drink, or water. Beer seems somehow out of place. But with a hamburger, with pizza, or on its own? Beer is nice.

    How come every year when I get a flu shot, I get a cold immediately afterwards which is arguably more miserable? I mean when I get the flu I can't do anything, but my nose is clear. When I get a cold I'm basically fine, but everything feels like more effort then it need be.

    ahhhh yes
    for me, it was getting used to the taste mixed first that threw me.
    If I'm drinking something on the rocks, it's probably rum or a specialty liqueur.

    in terms of beer?
    accessible beers that are genuinely good used to be hard to find, not sure how classy your area is but I would say for something really basic, Sam Adams' Cherry Wheat is one that we pick up a lot as sort of a "standard" beer on weekends; it's a really basic beer that tastes like beer but doesn't kick you in the face with hops. "Summer" beers like Hoegaarden aren't terribly overpowering. Darker beers will probably put you off for the moment.

    you might also want to try some non-traditional spirits and liqueurs-- some people will drink those as a rocks drink, but it depends on your taste as to what your mileage will be there-- most of those are derived from herbs and other natural flavors.

    Also, as per Denis Leary:
    alcohol doesn't necessarily taste good, and sometimes the grimace is built into the drink. I can't find the "whiskey face" routine anywhere but I'm sure it's on youtube somewhere.

    Expensive beers are fantastic. Unfortunately, they are hella expensive.

    10 bucks for 6 of them? I'd rather get a bottle of rum for 17 which'll make many more drinks.

    heh, I have completely lost my economy of scale on pricing drinks since I moved to the city. 10$ for a six pack sounds like a deal to me, but that's probably a higher end beer where you are.

    Why drink poor tasting alcohol? If there's stuff out there you like why would you want to consume the nasty stuff? Just to get drunk a few minutes quicker/little more cheaply?

    Well, you walk into a liquor store, and there's the 13 for 30 shit. The lowest of the low. Then there's stuff like Guiness that you can get 6 longnecks for 9-10 depending on deals. Then there's the Leger and Feinkegel and all of that stuff that is 6 for up into 10-11. The point being that almost all of the beer that expensive is good. Which is, say, the opposite of many things where value doesn't necessarily stay entirely congruent with taste.

    In my experience, cheap stuff is drank by people who

    a) are too young to buy it themselves and just get it
    b) are going to drink a ton of it (it gets expensive)
    c) have acquired a taste for it and don't care anymore (I have a friend who loves Miller Lite, my parents love Labatt, etc.)
    d) people who don't know any better

    a valid point. Here a six pack of CORONA is 8-12 depending on where you go. Might as well spend the 12 and get the Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier.

    Sam Adams is pretty cheap here. The 12 mixer was something like 14-16 if I recall correctly. And a hell of a brew. A sixer of Corona'd be, for longnecks, 7-9 and no more I imagine.

    Draught is so good ... mmm, chocolate milk.
