Ken's post in the Kentucky Tavern thread gave me this idea. What did your parents drink when you were growing up? Please don't answer if they got drunk every night and beat you, but if your beverage alcohol example in the home was a positive one, share it here.
My parents drank Mattingly & Moore, the cheapest straight bourbon they could buy in control state Ohio. My parents believed that anything worth doing was worth doing exactly the same way every single day of your life. When my dad came home from work, mom would pour a bourbon on the rocks for each of them. Dad would have his at the table. Mom sometimes would sit but usually she was finishing making dinner. They would drink their drinks and talk about their days. We kids were usually in the next room watching old Three Stooges shorts.
