This reminds me of my wife when we first met. She was a bartender at a Hip Hop Bar (early 90s) in Alphabet City (2nd & B), she had a full bar, but all she ever had to serve was malt liquor. (No, I didn't meet her there.)

So, what do the rest of you drink? I drink rye, probably because that's what my uncles drank when I was growing up and I guess I always thought of it as the adult beverage of choice. Judging from a lot of fiction from the 30s and 40s, it seems to have been the liquor of choice then, to be surpassed by bourbon sometime in the 50s or 60s. I think guys like the rat pack helped make bourbon popular.
