It seems to me that a lot of the bees are pretty tame when it comes to alcohol. I’m not the same party girl I used to be in in my teens/early twenties, but I do enjoy a stiff drink and a nice glass of wine (not at the same time.)
I’d say during the work week, I have 2-4 glasses of wine (in total.) And on weekends, between 4-8 drinks total. This obviously varies, some weeks its 0, some weeks it’s likely more.
Am I the minority here? How much do you ladies drink and BONUS QUESTION, what’s your drink of choice?
I’m partial to sauvignon blanc and vodka sodas.

Not sure where my ‘zero’ option went on the poll?

I used to be a wild college girl. But now, notsomuch. I love Riesling, G&Ts and Mojitos. In that order.

I don’t drink often. Probably once or twice a month. I’m trying to lose 70 lbs (I’m down 20 so far!) and the calories just aren’t worth it. When I do drink it’s usually just a glass of red wine. On vacation I typically drink quite a bit more but in my regular day-to-day I don’t drink much.
My husband probably has 3-4 drinks a week on average. He’ll occasionally have a beer at night when we are just hanging out after work and he usually orders a beer or when we go out.

I am probably on the heavier side of the drinkers!! I normally have 1-2 beers on average each weeknight. On the weekend I’ll probably have like 8 drinks on average overall? Either two nights of a getting a bit tipsy, or one bigger night and then a rest. Sometimes more, sometimes less depending on what’s going on.
So i guess on average that’s.. around 15? Oh boy… 10 – 20 is probably pretty standard with my friends and family though and we’re all reasonably successful office professionals with otherwise healthy lifestyles.
Favourite drinks: IPA, bourbon sours, red wine (but avoid it because of the hangovers 🙁 )

I’ve never been much of a drinker. I was “straight edge” as a teen and didn’t have my first drink until 21. I can count the times I’ve been drunk on one hand. That being said, I do enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail to “wind down” after a long day. This is maybe once a week, and only one drink. If I go out to eat I might order a drink on the weekends.
My drinks of choice are old fashioneds (anything with whiskey I adore), margaritas in the summer, I also like Moscow mules.

morethanyesterday : I’ve never really ever had more than 3 standard drinks on a night out even in my party days. I do remember a holiday with a friend where we had a cocktail, four gin and tonics and half a bottle of champagne each in 4 hours.We were on holiday and the hotel room was spinning that night …. Never again.😨
These days hubby and I will do a cocktail or two once a week. A negroni and a Tom Collins are the faves at the moment. I might have a champagne or wine when out but I’m usually designated driver so its a lemon lime bitter instead most times. If I have 3 drinks a week, it’s a rare week.

This varies quite a bit based on if we go out over the weekend. During the work week I would say 1-5 but weekends can go from 0 to ten real fast depending on what we’re doing.
ETA: drink of choice is usually beer. We have a ton of breweries nearby and I love trying the new stuff they come out with.

wolfeyes : I’m on the heavier side of drinkers too..
I have 1-2 beers a night during the week, more on weekends, especially in the summer when I hang out on my patio in the sun. We always have a growler in the fridge.
Drink of choice is beer, usually a hefeweizen, sore or something new (I try a new beer almost every time I go to the liquor store) or wine with dinner.

I chose the first option but honestly, it really just depends on the week for me lol
Sometimes I’ll go a couple weeks without having one at all and then some weeks I’ll have a beer after work, a couple at a concert and/or a glass of wine if I go out for dinner.
My drink of choice is beer (IPAs, especially session IPAs are my faves!) and typically I go to multiple beerfests a year so that will usually bring the weekly average up… quite a bit lol.

I am on the heavier side of drinking as well but trying to cut it down also because of calories. Fiance and I definitely enjoy a drink or two to wind down after working and working out everyday! I voted for the 11+, it varies depending on what we have going on during the weekends. I love wine, especially dry white wine but because of the sugar and calories I’ve given that up and switched to vodka (titos) and soda.

I’m in college now and I really only drink socially, and when I do it’s one or two. I’ve just never really cared about alcohol all that much. Never felt the pull as a teenager. I don’t hate it, I’m just not crazy about it.

I drink at holiday family parties, and on vacations. Maybe on a rare occasion at a dinner out, but only if something particularly interests me or someone has ordered bottle service So 3-4 drinks, every 5-7 months, max? That doesn’t seem to be an option on your poll, not a big drinker in general.

I probably have 1 drink every few months. Not a big drinker over here.
