Drinking in Your 30's versus Drinking in Your 20's

Drinking in Your 30's versus Drinking in Your 20's

“If drinking experience counted as something on my CV, I would be a CEO". We've all been around the block with alcohol. From boozing blunders to posh mimosa mornings. My how things change as we age!

Ah the good old days, when wine was cheap and a night out only started after 10pm *sigh*. Fast-forward a few years and “WTF! it's 11pm!? S***! I've got to get home before I miss work tomorrow!"

Behold the Differences between Drinking in Your 20's and Drinking in Your 30's

Wine

20's: 
Ooh! Pink, sparkly with notes of candyfloss? Classy!

30's: 
Oh, you must try this Pinotage I've just bought, it's full bodied with a hint of pencil shavings on the nose. Say no more, I've just bought a wine aerator we have to try, I'll be over in 5!

Vodka

20's: 
Infused vodka? You mean like vodka cranberry? Vodka Redbull? Caramel vodka? Ohh! You mean like infused with skittles?

30's: 
No, infused vodka with a Vodka Zinger: no artificial flavours, no added sugar, just fresh fruit, like orange vodka, raspberry vodka, rosemary - it's basically like a health drink with a kick.

Beer

20's: 
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Beer pong, cheap beer, beer bottles, beer cans, and beer Tees. Want a beer? Sure, let's go bar hopping.

30's: 
There's this new craft beer bar that opened, they do beer tasting and serve your beer with a beer chiller in it! We should make plans to go, maybe sometime next week or the weekend after?

Hangovers

20's: 
OMF my head is pounding! I'm never drinking again *scoffs down 1 quarter pounder, 2 cokes, chips and a small child* - So where are we getting hammered tonight?

30's: 
Death! Death! Death is upon us! Shut the blinds, I need another Advil, I can't find my head! Goodbye cruel world! *wakes up two days later*

If you're one of the lucky ones that don't have tell-tale signs of ageing, your drinking behaviour might just give you away so keep things fresh and #DrinkDifferently with Root7.
