Oh, alcohol. It can be the start of the best night ever or the worst mistake of your life. For those of us who like to enjoy an adult beverage every now and then, it's hard not to develop strong feelings about what's worth drinking and what should be immediately dumped into the sink and lit on fire. (Warning: Don't actually do this.)
Some people are all about cracking open a frosty beer on a hot summer day, while others think that every beer they've ever tried has tasted like straight-up stomach bile. Some enjoy a crisp glass of Moscato, while others declare this sweet wine to be the most lowbrow and trashy of all wines. For the record, this is a correct assertion.

Most people have a love/hate relationship with alcohol.
Everyone has their own favorites when it comes to boozy refreshments.
Others are all about the "brown" liquors.
Recently, a Twitter user posted a very loaded question.
Unpopular Opinion: Liquor Edition🍾 https://t.co/L9uye2P3oH— Ju Hefner🕺🏽 (@Ju Hefner🕺🏽)1548284563.0
The responses were, as you might guess, quick and plentiful.
First off, gin.The fact that more people don't regularly sip on gin has this Twitter user pretty darn outraged. Honestly, I 100% agree. Gin doesn't get the respect that it truly deserves.
....which is illustrated by this response.
@KatOrKaitlynn @glojulian Gin tastes like I’m chewing on a Christmas tree, spraying pine febreze in my mouth to was… https://t.co/QsLmfJDoxi— Justice for Breonna Taylor (@Justice for Breonna Taylor)1548805267.0
And, of course, our old friend Fireball gets thrown into the ring.
@KatOrKaitlynn @iamallofyou @glojulian Damn. Fireball really does taste like cinnamon flavored rat poison https://t.co/BK6aVgIzGW— Doin the Bending (@Doin the Bending)1548817150.0
This person actually raises a very good point.
If you're invited to a BYOB and you bring your shitty wine, sit down and drink your shitty wine. Don't go pouring… https://t.co/QQH2OQtrrn— sab 🇰🇪 (@sab 🇰🇪)1548839280.0
Next came the "all alcohol tastes terrible" comments.
@glojulian @Word2myKnicks All alcohol taste like poison.— Mila Garba (@Mila Garba)1548694302.0
Blasphemy quickly ensued.I'm sorry but over-hyped?!? You're combining bubbly, effervescent booze with something healthy and therefore justifying mid-morning drunkenness. You can pry my mimosa out of my cold, dead hand.
Okay, this one brings up an interesting point.

Next up, beer.I knew beer would be a hot button issue, but I had no idea such a large number of people found it so abhorrent. ...apple juice? Really?
Then came the discussion of how different drinks make you *feel* while drinking them.
@glojulian Wine drunk is wayyyyy better than a hard liquor drunk 🤷🏾♀️ https://t.co/U3WwYCxxOJ— Bye. (@Bye.)1548910731.0
And, of course, the tequila haters make themselves known.

Moscato, the sweetest of all wines, is labeled "overrated" by this bitter Twitter user.
@glojulian Moscato is underrated.— TheSweetLife (@TheSweetLife)1549191810.0
This is just good common sense.
@glojulian If you use premium liquor in a mixed drink, you are wasting your money and ruining the liquor.— J. B. Smith (@J. B. Smith)1548981965.0
This is actually a pretty popular opinion.I can't tell you how many times I've seen someone drop an ice cube into their red wine. It horrifies me every time.
Here's someone who's just throwing alternative options out there.You have to admit, they bring up a good point. Also, calling it "cancer poison" does make the thought of drinking alcohol slightly less appealing...
Another anti-beer activist enters the debate.
@glojulian Beer is what I imagine stale monkey sweat tastes like.— Tonight! On Sick, Sad World! (@Tonight! On Sick, Sad World!)1549153424.0
This just seems dangerous.
@maribandzs_ @glojulian You need to get ever clear from some sketchy red neck dude in a down south gas station to get the real thing— Stone Cold Cheeks Justin (@Stone Cold Cheeks Justin)1548561598.0
Shots are finally fired on our good friend vodka.
@glojulian Vodka is the worst of the main liquors.— Nick (@Nick)1548722542.0
Who here agrees with this statement?
sweet wine shouldn’t exist. like at all. https://t.co/Eial6UPSMh— bart. (@bart.)1548772573.0
This person is so OVER champagne.Sure, it's mostly about the aesthetic, but who cares?! Isn't it fun to feel fancy sometimes? Can't I have at least one second of pretending to lead a luxe, expensive lifestyle? CAN'T I?!
This person seems like they'd be a lot of fun to have at your next Happy Hour.
@glojulian Anyone who uses the words “brown” or “white” to describe liquor doesn’t know what they are talking about— Mark (@Mark)1548736238.0
One lone tequila supporter makes herself known.

I'm concerned about this person's general health and well-being.

I was with this guy until the end of his comment.
