Finding my drink

I am very interested in alcohol. I like drinking it and I’m also very interested in the history of it and how it effected different cultures. But there’s one thing that is bugging me. I never really enjoyed one particular drink. I always shift around from vodka to rum to whiskey, but I have no drink that defines me. I feel like I’m entering the world as an adult now, and that I need to have a drink that matches m personality. Something that if I’m meeting friends in a bar sometime in the future, it would be my regular drink. Something that I can sip, as well as come up with variations of and make cocktails with it.

Sadly I can’t think of such a drink.

Vodka is something that has no taste and I like mixing it, but still, I don’t think it could ever define me. As for rum, I like this drink, it is amazing when mixed, but I can’t stand sipping it, it’s just too sweet. I tried whiskey many times, but every time I just gave up on it. I don’t think it’s for me. Gin, I tried gin like once or something, but from what I remember I didn’t like it. Brandon says it tastes just like Christmas trees and I should suck on a pinecone to find out if I like it, but something tells me I just wont.

Have I really gone through most hard liquors and dismissed them all? I can’t believe I don’t like any of these alcohols. Seriously, my shelf is loaded with empty bottles right now  and I can’t love one of them? I realize that I left out most liquers, but I want something that I can go to a bar and sit down and expect them to have my drink, not wait and find out that they dont have it and have to order something else. I want something simple, something strong.

I guess I’ll continue my search for my alcoholic beverage, and I’ll see if I can try some beverages that I haven’t had in a while.
