I'm still waiting for etiquette questions like, "Is it considered appropriate to drink whiskey out of an iced glass or out of a gentleman's navel, if one is not formally engaged to the gentleman?"
Not that I'm asking for myself.
If you want to do a girls drink, try a Toblerone cocktail. Combines alcohol with what most girls love - chocolate!!!
When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
Everyone knows the only acceptable thing to drink out of a gentleman's (or stripper's) navel is cheap tequilla. Or under extreme circumstances, like your life turned into a country song, it is acceptable to just use the grocery-brand vodka out of the plastic bottle.
Whiskey should only be upon one's body if said body has enraged another so much that she has felt the need to throw a drink at him. I can see where you would get the two confused.

On a related note, just read about this ice cream shop in San Francisco - their #1 flavour is "Secret Breakfast" made with bourbon and toasted corn flakes:
My way-back-when college dormmates mixed Tang (that dates me) and Tequila.
You know, why is Doctor Pepper not included in any mixed drink I know of? Now that would be Klassy.
As long as the Boone's Farm, Mad Dog, or Ripple is served in a stemmed glass, a true lady can enjoy the finer vinos.
LOL, nothing special about drinking. You can drink and be very classy.
But for sure, being drunk is unclassy !!!

Ripple was an inexpensive fortified wine also produced by E & J Gallo Winery that was popular in the United States, particularly in the 1970s. Possessing a low 11% ABV (lower than modern table wines), it was originally marketed to "casual" drinkers. Due to its low price, it had a reputation as a drink for alcoholics and the destitute. It was popular among young drinkers, both underage and college students. It is no longer produced. This brand was also frequently referenced on Sanford and Son.
Ah, yes. Remember when the legal drinking age was 18? Were Harvey Wallbangers a girlie drink?
If you want to drink them, but are uncomfortable, order what you want but if someone asks what you're drinking, tell them it is something else.
I'll agree with everyone else that says it doesn't matter though, as long as you're in moderation.
Granted I don't know how proper it was considered at the time, but there was a prominent tennis player in the 20s, Suzanne Lenglen, that used to drink Brandy in between games. And as far as I know, she was considered a part of high society.

We have a lot of bars that specialize with "the browns" and women drink them as much as men. Now I need to get a drink.
Appletinis are a little girly though.
The slippery bald beaver sounds kinda good....
