After a night of being the designated driver, I come to this glorious forum with a question. Is there an acceptable non-alcoholic drink besides soda? I must have drunk a whole bottle of Coke and will probably remain wide awake until dawn. Was at a friend's so I could've just drunk tap water, but I wasn't really thinking about it at the time. It's pretty weird to order water during a proper night out though.

So Pit, imagine this: it's Friday night, you've driven you and your buddies to a club since you're 18/21+ and all. You're also a health freak, rendering soda or energy drink a no-go. You're at the bar as it's your round, you've got your friends' orders - 4 beer - and a bartender approaches you asking for your order. You reply: "4 beer and a [drink], please!", receive the drinks, pay up and enjoy the taste of a wise decision.


I shall not tolerate soda vs pop debates!

there's nothing weird about ordering water. It's free after all.

Water? Orange juice?


These are the two I would suggest.
Just a pint glass of water does the trick. You dun technically need to drink anything anyway.

Weird I was just thinking about this in the Shower 20 mins ago. I only drink Water (and alot of it!) and I was thinking about how much of a cheap ass I would look in a pub If I just kept going up asking for water (It's free). I'd probably try pay. But yeah if you are a health freak (like me) pretty much the only thing you can be drinking is water.

Doesn't water just make you seem like a cheap bastard?

Edit: ^You get what I'm talking about. Also, a lot of places don't allow people to order tap water anymore, you'd have to order bottled water, while still looking like a cheap fuck.

Nobody's going to say anything.. it's not like the bar staff actually care.

If anything they like that there's a designated driver. I think it makes their insurance cheaper.

cranberry juice is a good choice, or tonic water if you like it (I'm not a big fan).


To change the topic slightly: what's a good drink to order out? I'm getting tired of whiskey + coke all the time. Something manly though, no sex on the beach or long island tea.

Man up and just drink whiskey.
Or if you want something sweet, vodka+lemonade.

Edit: Oh weird, I'm not in the habit of telling people to man up, wonder where that came from...

^^ Why don't order a nice local beer? I've heard the popular American beers suck, but I've heard better things about the local stuff. Can't get manlier than beer. Dunno about mixes, although Bacardi+Lime soda is decent.

Also, wouldn't a mocktail basically be a mix of sodas and juices then, which would still be half bad?

Beers fill me up too much and make me piss all night. Figure on a night out I'm drinking at 2-3 liters of beer... not the best. I do like to have a few at a bbq or something, but not to pound down all night.


And to answer your question... yes.

I mostly only drink water or juice as non-alcoholic drinks. Only time I ever really have carbonated drinks is when I mix them with vodka.

you can drink when youre the DD, just not that much so you stay below the legal limit.

If you don't want to fill up, go with shots. You'll even have both of your hands available for maximum dancing!

Anyways, I'm off to bed, hope you guys have fun in here.

Edit: Yeah, I'd buy one round early in the night and receive drinks during the rest. Saves me some walking up and down the bar.

ordering water at restaurants is hella expensive, at least over here. They never give you tap water, they give you water from a bottle and charge 2.50 for a third of a liter.
