We’ve all had emotional outbursts from time to time, whether it’s positive or negative. As a result, we make decisions based on those emotions. So if we’re happy, we’ll participate in fun activities, but if we’re upset, we’ll most likely seclude ourselves.
During these emotional moments, alcohol is sure to be present. Through responsible drinking, a person can use alcohol to brighten up a situation. However, the alcohol that’s present is dependent on our mood.
No matter how you’re feeling, there are alcoholic drinks that you can enjoy. Let’s take a look at the different beverages below.
1. Red Wine
If you want to feel classy while you’re out to dinner or cooking at home, red wine is the choice to go. When you’re out, order a bottle a couple down from the top; it’ll be affordable and won’t taste too bad.
If you’re in the mood to party, then a margarita will be your wingman. It’s a solid and refreshing drink that you can drink blended or on the rocks.
Margarita’s are known to give you headaches in the morning after because of the different substances added to products. However, at Rancho La Gloria, our margarita’s are made with:
- 100% De Agave Wine
- Cane Sugar
- Natural Flavors
- Lime Juice
It’s also gluten-free, so truthfully, you’ll be helping your body out buy drink it!

3. White Wine
Have you just gotten dumped, fired, or just having an overall bad day? If so, you should crack open a bottle of white wine.
Then, to make yourself feel even better, combine it with your favorite pajamas, a tub of ice cream, and favorite TV shows for maximum effectiveness.
4. Craft Beer
Are you interested in trying something a little bit different than what you’re used to? If so, then try craft beers. No set mood dictates when you should drink craft beers. But beware, they taste a little bitter.
5. Bloody Mary
There’s nothing worse than having a hangover and friends pushing you to still go out for drinks. Drinking is the last thing you want to do. You barely have enough strength to make it to the bathroom.
So order a Bloody Mary to get you through the outing. The vodka and tomato juice combination is just what you’ll need to fight your hangover.

6. Espresso Martini
It’s been a long day at work, and you promised your friends you’d meet up for happy hour. You’re beyond tired, so what should you order? An espresso martini.
With the caffeine and alcohol combination, it’ll give you an energy boost that’ll help you enjoy the night out.
7. Old Fashioned
What’s better than an old fashioned on a chilly winter evening? This old-school whiskey combination will keep you warm and giddy while you’re staying warm by the fire.
8. Bailey’s on the Rocks
It’s after dinner, and you want dessert, but you don’t want to have any cakes or cookies. So what other way can you satisfy your sweet tooth?
Have some bailey’s on the rocks. The cream and cocoa will fulfill your cravings, and you won’t increase your calorie intake (Remember, liquid calories don’t count).
You can also drink Bailey’s neat if you don’t want it diluted with ice. It’s another excellent option that will do the job.
9. Rum & Coke
Rum & Coke is a staple for those that drink because it’s a simple choice. It doesn’t matter what occasion or how you’re feeling.
If you’re having trouble deciding on a drink, you can always rely on a rum and coke to tide you over until you have a better grasp of your mood.
10. Vodka & Red Bull
A vodka red bull is like an espresso martini multiplied by 100. This drink is more than an energy booster; it will get you in the mood to party all night long.
However, make sure that you’re fully prepared for your hangover the following day. It won’t be pretty.
Just like the rum & coke, a cosmopolitan is another easy go-to drink for any occasion. It’s a simple vodka and cranberry that saves you the trouble of gambling on a drink you know nothing about.
Cosmos also come in a nice fancy glass, which can give you that sophisticated feel. Who knows, you make end up taking it home by accident.
12. Rose Wine
Rose wine is like the middle child; it’s always in the middle of an argument. So when you don’t know what to choose between red and white wine, select rose wine.
Although it’s no one’s favorite, it’s still tolerable among those that want to drink some form of wine.
What do you order when you’ve been drinking a few nights in a row but want a softer drink tonight? You get shandy.
It’s a simple combination of beer and lemonade that won’t have any lasting effects like your drinks did the previous nights. Also, your friends won’t get to call you out for not drinking.
