Beat you to the punch. Bottoms up. One for the road. Tall drink of water. A cold one. You can lead a horse to water . . .

What are some other adages, sayings, expressions, or proverbs that include words mentioning/referencing drinks and/or drinking, even if they are not actually about drinks or the act of drinking something?

    I think someone here has drunk the Kool-Aid, and it's not Randy.

    I know.  I poured him a glass of Kool-Aid.  He hasn’t touched it.  This post was edited by Livvie at July 22, 2022 10:58 PM MDT

    That's where the expression 'drink the Kool-Aid' originated.

      She’s focusing on the word “Coke” as in the beverage, completely within the stated parameters of my posted question.

      I’ve never implied that I do not delete my posts when I’m in the wrong about something; I merely stated that it’s what you do too.

    I thought you despise when others put useless and needless words in their posts, yet here you are with a three-word post that shouldn’t have been put up at all. Wait, I see. You only chide other people for useless words, but it is perfectly fine when you do it.

    Despise is your word. I just think it's poor writing, but I don't get that emotional. And to which three words are you referring?

      Stu was referring to the slang word ‘coke’ as in cocaine, as evidenced by his “sniff sniff”; the action of frequent cocaine sniffers whose nasal passages run profusely, not any type of beverage.
