    I know ethanol has not got a real taste I am asking you if you have heard of it because you seem to believe that alcohol is not an ingredient which made me jump to the conclusion that you are an idiot and have never heard of ethanol as it has been stated as an ingredient in many products.
    Exactly, ethanol is an ingredient. Not alcohol.

    I'm sorry i didn't explain myself fully.

    Alcohol can be a number of different compounds, thus to say 'alcohol is an ingredient of every alcoholic drink' would be wrong, because of the fact alcohol can be any things, i was merely saying that

    no...you have the brain of an asswipe...probably because you have consumed too much alcohol in your life.
    I probably do drink to much, putting me in a much better position to say then you.

    And I understand what you mean, there is a distinct alcoholey taste that all alcoholic drinks have to some degree. But that doesn't mean they all basically taste the same, the difference between a bitter and a stout or pilsner to me is huge, much larger than the differance between sprite and coke, because beer actually has complexity to it. Spirits taste similar to a degree because they have much higher alcohol contents, the differance is still huge though.

    Even the most sober of plebians can't surely say, for example, that whisky tastes like white wine because they both have alcohol, anymore than fish & chips tastes like Knödel becasue they both have potatoes in them.

    Do you understand the comparibility between smell and taste?
    Like if you hold your nose while eating, you won't 'taste' it nearly as much, or even at all? Like i said.. it is tasteless, but the smell is recognisable.

    Also, OP, you miss 0% of the shots that you don't take. You haven't taken them, so you can't miss them.

    But I digress.

    I have never liked the taste of alcohol either. I have only ever got drunk once in my life and hated the experience. Since then I have vowed never to touch alcohol again. I think you are really sensible not drinking alcohol. If I had my way I would do a complete blanket ban on all alcohol! All it does is cause death, serious injury, unwanted pregnancies and a lot of heartache! Well done to you!!

    a) well maybe they have tried all non mixed (ie not with coke etc) drinks and not like the taste. And mixed drinks it is the mixer you really taste. In that case they honestly don't like the taste of alcohol.

    b) Maybe they don't drink because they don't see the point. Saying you don't like the taste is more polite than telling the (presumably drinking) person asking you why you don't drink that you think drinking (which they are doing at that exact moment) is pointless.

    And I've had the experience of having a rather ensistent drunk person keep asking me why i'm not drinking. (I don't drink that often but i do drink a little sometimes) In that case the reason why i wasn't drinking was because i had just come dowstairs to tell my housemates friends to shut up because it was almost 5am.
