  • I used to have a margarita with my grandma. I don't think I could drink with my kids.

  • If they are of legal drinking age...sure. I've gone to clubs with my kids and their co-workers. I also went to their company party so I could be the designated driver.

  • If they're of legal drinking age, why not?

  • I have drinks with my mom, grandma, aunt, whole family so I don't see anything wrong with it. When my son turns 21 I'm sure I'll enjoy an adult beverage with him from time to time as well. Of course thats in like 14 years.

  • I don't really mind one drink with family once in awhile while underage. Lots of people do it with special meals/holidays. That said, if their 21+ I don't see why your even asking this. If they are responsible (and so are you) sure.

  • I don't see why not. I have an occasional glass of wine with mom. My mom planned my bachelorette party it was a blast and it was fun to hang out with my mom like that.

  • If they can buy it, absolutely!!! If they can't, better not, because if you're caught, you go to jail.
