    Yeah and man, was my mom upset!
    I had her buy some drink advertised on tv as: "Lemon Rock, Lime Rock and Orange Rock"...she bought it and neither of us knew it was an alcoholic beverage.....
    I opened it and took one swig and knew, but didn't tell her.
    She figured it out,.... when she came into the living room and I was upside down on the couch watching tv, laughing like a loon!
    Of course, I had finished off the entire quart by then......and was blotto!
    I really was fond of orange flavored drinks back then!
    I think I was 15-16, a sophomore in high school.

    I decided to get a bloody mary. The Bar was a dive in Ocean City MD, and used cheap tomato juice. I had to ask for Tobasco sauce so I could get it down. It still had tomato seeds in it. I love tomatos, but I hate tomato seeds. I guess I'm just silly that way.

    Bloody Mary- use V8 people, it's not that expensive.

    Geez, that's too long ago to remember where and when. My state didn't have liquor by the drink back then so my first legal drink would have been a coke to go with my bring your own bottle of bourbon.
    I lived in Las Vegas when I was 16 and would go to the smaller casinos and set at a blackjack table and if they dealt to me I would sit there and play and order a bourbon and coke from the cocktail waitress. At least until I got carded and kicked out!!

    I had to wait until I was (19) in the military to get a drink across the bar. The guys made a mistake on my I.D. and I was instantly two years older. Prior to that I was drinking on my own since I was 10...but that's another story. Surprisingly enough, I am not an alcoholic -cannot say the same for others in my family, but...over here in Europe, it is no big deal. Most people respect alcohol, and kids don't abuse it like Americans do. Young adults in Europe are more responsible and can handle far more alcohol (no wonder why, of course). Today I drink dark German beers with 8% alc. content and really do not consider the lighter American micro-brews. I stick to one or two and call it a day. Beats the twelve pack of Pabst any day.

    I think my first drink over the bar was a crappy Miller Light.

    Well, there was this Bar / Dance Club called the Cascades near Xenia, Ohio. With help from an older friend I made it in there repeatedly. I was only 15 and all I drank was 3.2 beer of various brands. It was a hoot that I never got carded and or kicked out. First private drink was a year or two earlier in a situation like Clyde's and Melbo's, but we only drank Calvert's Extra Smooth Whiskey because my friend's dad bought it by the case and never caught on. We tapped that source on a regular basis!
