Alcohol Gift
I bought alcohol for the first time ever. Yes, I was carded (Yes, I'm of age. Shoo shoo). I bought Smirnoff Ice as a gift for being a guest at the CouchSurfing movie night. I'm not drinking any myself, though.

Good gift?

i'd do an actual bottle of liquor next time.

cheaper, more use :)

Most people seem to have been favoring the six bottle of darker glass 'orange' something-or-another. I didn't catch the name but I think most people had one. I think only the host had one of the Smirnoff's (which is what he prefers, so *shrug*).

Next time is a potluck so I'll need to figure out a dish to make. I'll try the 'liquor' thing for the next movie night.

you don't drink normally? I mean when not driving

congrats you bought the girliest drink ever :p But, if the host liked it that's a plus. Generally when I'm not drinking, I'll contribute a decent beer of some kind or a bottle of vodka, or maybe rum since it can be mixed with lots of things. If I am, or if I know the people who will be there pretty well, I'll buy "interesting/adventurous" beer (we have lots of microbrewery stuff available) or just a better type, like Guinness. Lately for liquor i've been encouraging everyone to try Firefly Sweet Tea vodka (ok, its kinda girly, but this is the south, EVERYONE drinks sweet tea..mitigating circumstances)

Those be foreign words to me. I've heard a number of people rave about Smirnoff so I figured it would be a hit, but then the store had various flavors like Grape, Watermelon, and Triple Ice so I was left wondering "Huh?".

I'll see if the store has any of the Firefly Sweet Tea vodka the next time I'm looking to give the gift of alcohol.

Correct, I don't drink alcohol. :-)
