I Originally started this thread as a ticker change before I saw the other post. Oops! Thanks to @cmbt2 's suggestions, let's make it a "Which Alcoholic Drink Do You Miss the Most?" thread.

  • Already beat you to it :) (look for All groups Check in) The board organization decided on week check ins instead of ticker changes, at least unless we get a ton more people.

  • @elle-0409 make it a “we can’t drink but it’s a drinking thread!” We can all complain about being sober while feeling like we were hungover and not being able to hold down liquids 

    LOL or you know, a random gtky thread

  • We're packing up our house and found my good alcohol stash that has probably gone unnoticed for at least 5 years (can you tell I'm not much of a drinker anyway?) but it had coconut tequila, strawberry rum and a citrus vodka I really love and I found myself craving a drink and being sad I couldn't have any of it! 😂

    I bought 3 cases of leinenkugel’s winter porter the night I got my bfp (night time tester- the random 1% with higher hcg at night). Now, they’re all just sitting in my garage and can’t be touched 😪

  • Drinks are a pretty rare indulgence for me but my go to cocktail is an amaretto sour.

  • My husband got a whole case of 24 bottles of Mad Elf for Christmas. If you know anything about Mad Elf, you know it is a strong flavor and you really really want one at christmas but after a few you're like, "I'm good." Well, now my husband has to take one for the team and drink the remaining 14!!

  • Wahhh! I miss all of it! I feel like I only just got back to being able to drink. We have a lot of good bars around us and recently I'd been doing a lot of specialty cocktails, my faves being the gin drinks. That or a nice craft beer. *sigh*

  • @ceclarlinetlo I love amaretto sours!! That is also my go-to drink for sure. 
    Also I feel like people don’t consider Moscato “real wine” but the BJs here has this really good Moscato that my husband and I found a month or so ago. I had my last half glass the night before I got my BFP.

  • I’m not much of a drinker, but my go to drink is usually a gin and tonic (Tanqueray is my gin of choice)or a Malbec if i’m drinking wine. 

    When we were TTC my son, I went to a girlfriend’s birthday party and ordered a club soda in a cocktail glass and no one knew the wiser. When I asked the bartender to put it in a cocktail glass she said she would make it extra strong for me and even put a lime and a sprig of mint in it. When I went back to our booth the birthday girl even exclaimed “you love your gin and tonics don’t you?!” 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Wino over here. Used to have a glass of Pinot Grigio or Malbec every night with dinner. I’m substituting by having sparkling water in a wine glass as my little reward after work, but it’s just not the same 😩
    This was me but Cabernet or Malbec. I haven’t craved it much so far but have girls night at the wine bar next Friday and that’s gonna be tough!!

    Yes! I have a book club meeting coming up that normally turns into an all night wine fest with little mention of the book, and I’m worried about the raised eyebrows. I hope you have fun at your girls night! They might be able to do something festive for you. I’ve been having some pretty good mocktails at restaurants/bars lately, and that always makes me feel more like I’m a part of the fun. 
  • @cuduebor Great suggestion! Luckily it’s a small group and the ladies know how hard we’be been trying, so I told them after our US yesterday looked good. That said, I’m on a plane now headed to Atlanta for a work trip, and have another one to Phoenix next week. I don’t plan to tell coworkers for quite a while yet so the dinners will be tough! Mocktails could work - what’s your favorite so far??
  • Red wine. Specifically zinfandels and cabernets. We don’t drink every night but it was a nice way to unwind every now and then after the kids were in bed.
    emily1052cooaladolly
  • @jenferlee82 Hope you travel safely and glad your US looked good! It’s nice to be able to tell your friends and grow that support group! I’ve had the most luck with mocktail versions of gin drinks like gimlets and rum drinks like mojitos since the bartender can just omit the alcohol and throw in club soda, tonic, or seltzer. My husband also made me a virgin Moscow mule with just ginger beer, mint, and lime juice that was pretty tasty and helped ease my stomach a bit.

  • @galentine I LOVE brunching and mimosas...sigh. I had to fake drink at the last girls brunch. Just plain OJ is just criminal
    galentineemily1052mimihatesyoucooaladolly
  • I miss it all, but my first love has always been vodka mixed with anything~
    cooaladollyelle-0409
  • @cuduebor I love Moscow Mules! That’s a great idea because the special mug will also make folks think I’m drinking, as long as I’m sneaky in obtaining them.

  • wine and champagne! Seeing all the nice expensive champagne on display for valentines day is making me real sad. 
    emily1052mimihatesyoucooaladollyelle-0409
  • Wine. Especially with a really good meal. If DH or I cook a nice dinner, I usually choose a good wine to go with it. And with restaurant meals. It just compliments the food and I miss it! 
    emily1052mimihatesyoucooaladolly
  • I don’t drink much but my go to is hard cider. For mixed drinks I go for Captain and Coke but that’s usually only at weddings or special occasions 
    cooaladolly
  • The answer is always wine

    my jerk husband and sister opened a bottle last night while we watched shows and I died a little on the inside. Literally took the bottle and just smelled it for a few min lol I might have a problem. 
    I cooked dinner and my FIL brought over a nice bottle of wine that he and my husband shared. I was super bitter inside haha!
    longhairdntcare
  • Well I was discussing where to have dinner tomorrow night with DH and I said I wanted to go to this place with amazing hot wings, but can’t have beer. Then I mention 2 more places, also known for beer as well as food. Like seriously though, I’m annoyed. I also saw Baileys has Strawberries and Creme for Valentines and I’m drooling thinking and that in a milkshake.

  • @grapeskittles4lyfe it's really tasty!!

    I think I miss Moscow Mules and Mojitos the most right now. I grew mint this year specifically for homemade Mojitos and they were amazing 😍

  • I miss you, Chardonnay.  :'( 
    mimihatesyoucooaladolly
  • Update: ordered a virgin mojito at the airport. Yummy! And an extra bonus that it is helping my nausea (which decided to show up today!) 


    Yay! Mocktails are the only way I'm gonna make it through the next 35 weeks.
