  • I swear to God I just heard somebody say "chug it".

  • What the [beep] is that?

  • Yeah, I'm not a man.

  • We brought you here today because you are newly of age for an adult beverage.

  • Yep.

  • I am.

  • I've been partying for a few months.

  • Ooh, I like adult beverages, and beverages in general.

  • To officially welcome you to the club, we're gonna present you with a few fun drinks to get you started on your journey of drinking responsibly.

  • Always.

  • I think my favorite is just, like, tequila shots, 'cause, you know, you got the salt, the lime, and it's, like, a whole experience.

  • I have, like, two things that I'm comfortable with, Jack and Coke or whiskey sour, 'cause those are the most generically nothing things I could possibly order.

  • I don't drink a lot, so I'm pretty lightweight.

  • I was never really a big drinker, so I don't know a lot of different names.

  • I'm just hoping to, like, learn about more differentmore drinks here.

  • I'm just curious to see what you guys give me, 'cause, like, this is, likeit's super exciting for me.

  • Let's go.

  • Here is your first drink.

  • That's what I'm talking aboutwhat is that, peach?

  • It's likesee, this is a nice color that you would find in alcohol.

  • It's very light and bubbly and has fruit on it.

  • This seems like a nice drink by the poolside.

  • I feel like I will like it, 'cause I usually like really sugary drinks.

  • It's got coconut, right?

  • Yeah, that's good; that's really good.

  • Oh, man! I could easily finish this; I know it's probably not my smartest idea, though.

  • That's really sweet.

  • I don't taste any alcohol in it, really.

  • This tastes so good.

  • I, like, I'm not a pineapple or coconut person, but this is amazing; it's kind of like the Dole Whip at Disneyland.

  • It feels like all of the fruits that I would wear on my head when I was doing, like, that conga dance thing, like, they put that in the drink.

  • So, this is actually called a Malibu Bay Breeze.

  • Okay, I think I have had one.

  • I know what Malibu is; I've definitely had my fair share.

  • It's made with Malibu, which is a coconut rum, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice, and for many, this is the gateway cocktail to drinking because it has no alcoholic flavor to it.

  • Yeah, definitely did not taste any of the alcohol; that's a very dangerous drink.

  • The more fruitier drinks where you don't taste the alcohol, I think those are the ones that get you more, 'cause you don't notice them.

  • Here is your next drink.

  • It is very blue.

  • It's blue; is it an AMF?

  • I'm a fan of the color blue-flavored anything.

  • Oh, is this an Adios?

  • It's blue; it's so iconic.

  • I know Adios has, like, a ton of just straight alcohol, so it gets you pretty messed up.

  • Oh. It doesn't taste at all like alcohol; it tastes like soda.

  • Oh, that's definitely an AMF. I've also had, like, a bucket of AMF, which I don't condone, but I recognize the feeling in my throat now.

  • OK, I taste a little alcohol.

  • The other one was, like, a more fruity drink, but this is more likewhat's the word?

  • Like a refresher.

  • OK, there's alcohol in this, but otherwise, I feel like I'm just drinking water.

  • You drink it and you're like, "Oh, it's blue and it's pretty, like... love it!"

  • And then, by the end, you're like, "How did I drink that all so fast?"

  • This is actually called an Adios Mother [beep].

  • Oh.

  • It is made with every type of alcohol except whiskey.

  • Really? So, it's really strong?

  • It didn't taste strong at all.

  • If it's made correctly, you won't taste a single one of those alcohols.

  • It's like Math; they cancel each other out.

  • If you really, really wanna get, like, get that buzz, I think honestly I would get this.

  • This is the West Coast's bluer alternative to the Long Island Iced Tea, and should only be ordered on your 21st birthday and then never again.

  • - I can see that.

  • Maybe I'll have to try a Long Island Iced Tea.

  • There is no Long Island over here, and we like blue and being extra.

  • That's what California's all about.

  • Only 21?

  • I heard "chug it"; I swear to God I just heard somebody say "chug it".

  • Here's your next drink.

  • Oh, this looks way too adult for me.

  • I'm just feeling like, like, a whiskey vibe, where it's, like, I need to be in a suit.

  • Kinda reminds me of "Mad Men"; have you ever seen?

  • Yeah, I don't know; just the cup with the ice.

  • Again, fruit decor, as always.

  • Yeah, I'm not a man.

  • It has a morelittle stronger taste to it.

  • Is it, like, whiskey or something?

  • I don't like it.

  • What the [beep] is that?

  • Oh, God. No.

  • No, not at all; that's disgusting.

  • Why... why do people drink this?

  • Do you lose, like, your taste buds after a while of drinking?

  • Those other two, I could just be, like, gunk, gunk, let's go.

  • But this, this is something I'm just, like, ordering to look classy at the bars.

  • Looking out at the bars, like, "What's going on, guys?"

  • This is called an Old Fashioned.

  • Oh, I thought Oldwait.

  • I've heard the name Old Fashioned.

  • I don't know why I thought it was, like, more scary-looking than this, like, I didn't know it had fruit in it.

  • So, "Mad Men".

  • So, this is made with bourbon, bitters, and a twist of orange; some people muddle their sugar cubes and others use simple syrup.

  • OK, so it's not as bad as what I've had, but, you know, still not the greatest, and I totally, like, feel the drunkness coming on now.

  • Thanks to the likes of Don Draper, this has been the best selling cocktail in the US for the past two years, but it's actually been around since 1880.

  • Damn. I mean, not surprised; it's not a lot of work for an alcoholic drink.

  • No Old Fashioned for me; I'm gonna pass on that.

  • Here's your next drink.

  • Ah, martini, shaken, not stirred.

  • That was more like Spock than James Bond.

  • I've always wanted to try a martini just 'cause James Bond, but I've never been confident enough to order one.

  • It's a martini.

  • You know how I noticed? The olive and the glass.

  • I'm assuming it's a martini, like, if my TV show knowledge hasn't failed me.

  • It looks like foggy water with an olive in it.

  • Yes.

  • That [beep]'s gross.

  • Oh, no. Nope, nope, nope.

  • That just, like, went straight to the back of my throat and burned it; it's like acetone.

  • Whoa, that is funky; right off the bat, just salty.

  • I mean, I should've expected that with an olive sitting in there.

  • It tastes like urine.

  • I mean, I don't know what urine tastes like, to be fair, but it does taste bad.

  • I hate olives, so, to be fair, that's probably part of it.

  • It looks nice, but it tastes like salty dirt water.

  • This is a dirty gin martini.

  • - Martini? - So, there's a lot of ways you can customize it.

  • This one's got gin, dry vermouth, and a small amount of olive brine garnished with your favorite olive right there.

  • I have seen it in movies; it's, like, you go to a hotel with your suit after work and you order a martini.

  • What makes it dirty?

  • Ordering it dirty gives it a cloudy look, and it's great if you don't like the taste of alcohol because it brings out the salty olive flavor.

  • Yeah, but, like, if I... if I don't like this one, I'm not gonna like the regular one.

  • I'd rather drink the Old Fashioned than thiswhy am I drinking olive juice?

  • This is the James Bond drink, except he orders his with vodka, shaken, not stirred.

  • I don't really know what the different is with shaken and stirred.

  • I would never, like, be out drinking with friends and be like, "Guys, next round's on me; let's all get martinis."

  • Here is your last drink.

  • Ooh, it has whipped cream on it; yes!

  • Woo! Dude, it looks like butter beer.

  • I'm not even convinced there is alcohol in there.

  • It literally just smells kind of like a pumpkin spice latte.

  • This is like a cappuccinois it pumpkin spice something?

  • It's like apple ciwhat is that alcohol?

  • It's apple cider for sure.

  • It's extremely sweet; it tastes like those candies that are supposed to be sour first then sweet, but without the sourness to it.

  • It's good.

  • This is definitely, in my opinion, a Christmas drink.

  • I do not see myself ordering this at a bar unless it's for a festive reason, but hot alcohol is very weird.

  • The aftertaste is better.

  • While you... while you're in the process, you're like, "No", but then afterwards, it's, yeah, it's good.

  • This is a tequila and cider Hot Toddy.

  • Tequila! I should've known.

  • I would never have guessed that was tequila.

  • If you don't know, tequila is, like, the devil of all alcohols.

  • As in, it just really messes you up and you can't even taste it because it tastes like you're trying to

  • Like, you're sick and you're like, "Ooh, it's warm and, like, comforting and, like, there's whipped cream on it. Yay."

  • Fun fact: Whiskey and tequila were sometimes used as decongestants in the old days.

  • Oh, wow, if you're sick, but you still wanna drink a little something, this would probably be the drink.

  • I could definitely see that 'cause it does go down very nicely.

  • I'm not against it; it's (a) good drink, just hot.

  • Which one was your favorite?

  • The Adios Mother [beep]; I just like the more refreshing taste to it.

  • I really liked the Bay Breeze; I just love pineapple.

  • Pineapple is a delicious flavor and should be everywhere.

  • This, because it just makes you feel so good and warm inside and that's what you want when you're, like, buzzed.

  • You just wanna feel warm inside and, like, toasty and, like, happy.

  • Like how I do feel right now; I feel so toasty and happy.

  • What would you tell those about to turn 21? Do you have any advice for them?

  • Drink responsibly.

  • It's okay to have a really fruity drink; no one's judging.

  • Just know your limits and make sure you and, you know, the people that you're... like, you care about and are drinking with are OK, and then just have a good time.
