I have a friend that insists on drinking because he feels it is part of the social atmosphere of going to bars and such and because a couple of drinks never hurt anyone on a Friday or Saturday evening. He normally orders a scotch or Vodka on the rocks and gets a buzz rather quickly. But, he hates alcohol and I can see that he basically suffers through drinking it. I suggest to him to try mixed drinks, but he is a health nut and does not eat sugar. Can anyone suggest the least alcohol tasting cocktails? I know that vodka tends to be the easiest liquor to hide the taste of, but that usually works with Tonic water or juice, but again, a lot of sugar.
Can anyone suggest some healthy options (even though I argue that the alcohol past 1 or 2 drinks is probably a lot less healthy than some added juice or sugar) that don't taste as strong as straight up liquor?
