    Typically I only drink on the weekends.. but occassionally we’ll sit out by our firepit & have some beers.. or sit at our patio table and have a cocktail. I don’t think it’s weekly though.. so I’d vote “other”, maybe 2-3 times a month.. more so in the summer than winter definitely!

    DH and I work opposite schedules so its usually  just me at home at night.  I don’t like wine but sometimes Ill have a mikes hard or smirnoff wine cooler thing.  DH makes the best drinks so I usually just wait until the weekend when we have dinner and he makes me something yummy!

    I would say maybe once every two weeks? We arent big drinkers (anymore), but we do order something when we go out for dinner. I am a wine drinker and DH is a whiskey guy so I hate opening a bottle of wine to drink by myself!

    However, when DH’s family is in town we drink a lot more. That is only a few times a year though.

    One glass of white wine with a bit of fresh fruit almost every night

    @Sea_Ashley:   You’re not alone.  I have a glass of wine (or more) every single evening.  I was raised Italian, what can I say, lol.  We drink wine with dinner, it’s a thing.   It’s ok!  😉  My wine rack is continually stocked.

    I only drink when we go out to dinner/have company (maybe once or twice a month) and maybe once a month at home

    @Sea_Ashley: It depends on how I feel. Recently I’m finding I only want one at weekends. But after a hard week it can be one every night.

    @Sea_Ashley:  Probably compared to people on this board, but a glass of wine a day is not unhealthy, especially if it’s red wine.

    @Sea_Ashley:  Rarely. On the weekends, we will sometimes have a drink by the fire pit or have a glass of wine with dinner. We are Russian, and our families drink a lot (especially vodka, lol), but we haven’t followed suit.

    Typically it’s only one the weekends or once a week. We meet up with friends about once a week for a game night and the wives take turns bringing wine over while the guys have their choice beers/mixes.

    I don’t drink to wind down on a regular basis. Usually FI and I have a date night on Friday, and I’ll have a couple cocktails. On rarer occasions, I will also get together with my parents or my best friend and her FI on the weekend, and then I’ll have wine or a couple cocktails as well. Depending on the week, that’s 0-2 times per week. I’m pretty much strictly a social drinker.

    @MrsPanda99:   I found a recipe for pineapple mint vodka in Bon Appetit magazine that I can’t wait to try, sounds so yummy, lol.

    We have a fire pit, too!  It’s fun and cozy to sit around it in the evenings, and provides yet another wonderful excuse for drinking.  🙂

    We have wine every single night with dinner, and beer/mixed drinks a couple times a week, typically weekends. I am very much a social drinker, so whenever I go out with friends or what have you, we usually have a few pints or a bottle of wine. I definitely drink more than I used to, but I don’t think it’s a problem, as I am not dependent on it, nor do I miss it if I haven’t had a drink in a while.
