  • Why start now, if you've never had a drink. Don't feel pressured to just because it's her 21st.

  • If you never go out- don't go for cheap, go for good!! Malibu and pineapple juice is a lighter and sweeter drink. I prefer whiskey and coke myself:) Just make site to order a glass of water with each drink so you're not completely hung over in the morning. Congrats to your friend and to you for taking a night off for yourself!

  • Agreed about Malibu and Pineapple juice, very yummy! But I understand! I am not much of a drinker and never know what to order, so I always have friends tell me what they like and I try those.

  • I enjoy Captain and coke when I'm out, I don't go out much either.

  • Sweetie I am a drinker...and if you truly NEVER drink do not drink RUM or WHISKEY!! You will regret it in the morning... Especially if you are going cheap. The cheaper the booze the worse the hangover. Trust me. Stay away from "Rail" booze it is the cheapest.

    I agree with Beachybabe why start now...but if you want to sip pick something with Vodka and juice in it. Tell the bartender you want something sweet with Vodka. Trust me.

  • We are going out to eat before so we have food in our systems...I know I wont drink much because I will look out for everyone else..I'm kinda a mother hen.

  • mixed drinks are usually expensive if you like the sweetness..."sex on the beach", "bacardi" and "smirnoff" flavored bottled drinks, "fuzzy naval" and so on...

    if you like beer, i would go tap (in a glass) instead of a bottle and a light beer..

    BUT you said you dont drink so i would go with soda or a kiddie cocktail (no alcohol whatsoever but poses as a mixed drink) usually these drinks are $1 or under.
