Who are we kidding? We all love a good, good drink. In the midst of balancing jobs, family, money and making sure our lives look rocking on social, we millennial believe Friday night parties are our birthright. An while we may belittle everything from relationships to maintenance of work-life balance, we do not belittle the importance of a superb drink at a superb party.
So here is the millennial drunkard’s guide to drinking:
Vodka is lethal — there I said it! And this is coming from someone who once foolishly (and too quickly) downed four doubles, barfed below the table where we were eating (a little) and drinking (a lot), and then was sorta comatose till the next morning. Personally, I can handle vodka only in cocktails (how amazing is an LIIT) and just the thought of vodka shots creates a faux-burning sensation in my throat and chest (memories!).
This lovely alcohol, fermented from grain mash and long associated with upper class gentry of yore, is a thing of beauty. Wether you have it with on the rocks, with water or soda, or mix it with just the right amount of cola (JD and Coke anyone!), it is bound to result in an ethereal drink. Fun fact – India consumes as much whiskey as the rest of the world put together!
Alcohol percentage: 40-68 percent ABV
Cocktails: Whiskey Sour, Old Fashioned, Manhattan
Beer is bae. For you, for me, for everyone. Its cheap, it goes supremely with anything that you are eating, its good for the kidneys and only one of these phrases may or may not be true! Whether its our tried and tested Kingfisher Ultra or a more dry Asahi or some freshly microbrewer goodness, there has been quite the boom in the Indian beer industry in the past ten years and we are not complaining.
Alcohol percentage: 4-8 percent ABV
Super Indian beers: Bira, King’s beer

I honestly believe this simple, usually uncomplicated drink doesn’t get as much applause as it should. At least in India it doesn’t. Some gin, some tonic water and a touch of lime cordial – zingy, simple and just fun! Fun fact – Gin doesn’t have that ‘drinking smell’: you know the one we try to mask and moms have a special sensor for. So it is a win-win drink
Alcohol percentage: 36-50 percent ABV
Cocktails: Gimlet, South Side
Rum rum rum rum rum, o Whiskey! If you have known heartbreak, you have known Old Monk; if you have known supreme happiness that had to be shared with ALL your friends, you have known Old Monk; if you are a broke millennial, you have known Old Monk! The solution to all of life’s problems, rum is a brilliant drink that lends itself supremely to cocktails. Also, while we all owe allegiance to standard dark rum, try out white rum too – it will surprise you.
