Theoretically yes but most drownings are caused by water. How many people drown in Hennessy ?

Hey, people choke on their drinks all the time.

I am tolerating some apple juice mixed with apple cider vinegar.
My Friday beverage.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel.

I drowned more than a few people in my time with spirits. Cheaper than therapy to be sure and usually a lot more fun.

Everybody's choice of drink on this thread is really sophisticated, and exciting.
The most exotic that I dare go is pineapple juice, mixed with... itself.

No. I just really love their coffee. Starbucks makes consistently good coffee and their stores are always clean. Excellent, friendly service as well.

Something called dihydrogen oxide. Drink it has been know to result in death. Doctors say death occurs when it enters the lungs but as long as you drink it the right way you should live. Sort of like snake venom or hemlock. Just have to drink them the right way.

Weak black tea. (Literally made with boiling water over a tea bag, the tea bag then immediately removed). Real tea lovers just watch me brew up with expressions akin to horror. Their problem, not mine, as I love it. Another favourite is plain boiled water.

Dr. Pepper.

Has anyone noticed that Dr. Pepper pretty much always fizzes up or spills over when you open it. If I was Walter on Breaking Bad I am sure I'd have a reason why. I know it has something to do with the chemical content. In fact I would make it a point to figure out the exact chemical content of Dr. Pepper compared to other soft drinks. I think Mr. Pibb as well as knock off brands do the same thing. Even if you don't drop the bottle or shake it you always have to open it slowly and carefully it seems.

Hmmm, not my experience, if it's ice cold (the way I like to drink it).  At a soda fountain, it always spill over.

Last thing I drank was Blue Moon.

Other than the coke from Hardees, the bitter fruit of last night's dinner--the deserved half hour in the bathroom in pain from a bunch of hot wings. And for lunch of course at Hardees I had buffalo chicken tenders. It must be a sign I am getting old. My dad always has these half hour periods in the bathroom every once in a while, which when I was younger I used to think funny when he mentioned them. For some reason we resolve not to eat spicy food again but of course we do....

Remember Christmas lasts until February 2 in the West....Candlemas is the end of Christmas on our calendar if you really want to may it last as long as you can. God is good, for he gave us beer, wine, and whisky.

There's everything wrong with bad coffee. I've become kind of coffee hipster over the years. I don't like coffee made with those drip coffeemakers anymore. Especially if it's not dark-roasted.

Coffee. It was some Starbucks I got as a present. It actually tasted pretty substandard. But, hey, free coffee! Woo hoo!

The problem with Starbucks is that a lot of their coffee is grown using slaves, children, and forced laborers.

So if you don't agree with slavery and forced child-labor, Starbucks is not a moral way to go.

More information on Starbucks and slavery (something which people pretend not to agree with, but their pocketbooks speak louder than the empty words) is here:

http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_22327.cfm

And this is a very comprehensive source which helps people who want to stop supporting slavery:

http://www.free2work.org/

Along with the issue of actual slavery is the issue of unfair wages, or "wage slavery." That's pretty bad too.

Ethiopian coffee  hand roasted by a Parishioner and sold to support the Church Building fund..

Tastes of blueberry.

Your idea has been debunked 1000 times already.. Maybe 1001 will be the charm

Coffee. It was some Starbucks I got as a present. It actually tasted pretty substandard. But, hey, free coffee! Woo hoo!

The vast majority of their coffees, i.e. the darker roasts, are burnt.  Hey, the factories have to pump out that coffee for the willing and paying masses!

If you like a dark roast try "Peets Coffee".. Much better than Starbucks

I'd prefer espresso unless some chain café offers french press coffee.
