Let Me Buy You A Drink… Liquor Black People Love

December 13, 2013 ‐ By Meg Butler

Last week we told y’all about Slate’s detailed explanation of why black folks love cognac, but the truth is that’s not the only liquor we fancy. It’s never a surprise to us when someone of color orders one of beverages.

Liquor Black People Love

Moscato

Black folks love Moscato so much NPR did a report on it. It’s sweet, easy to find,  and it’s enjoyed a shout out from rappers from Lil’ Kim to Drake. Even NeNe Leakes started her own brand called Miss Moscato.

    it’s time to jump off of the racist white corporate media train. this is pure stupidity.

    I’m confused … did it ever occur to you all that some of these drinks end up IN rap songs because lots of people are ALREADY consuming them and NOT the other way around.

    In my day everyone was already drinking Gin(bumpyface) & juice before Snoop gave an ode to it. Just like we were consuming Alize before B.I.G. gave a nod to it. —Alize keeps me tipsy, girls say they miss me—–

    And here in Chicago we were consuming THE GREEN MONSTER (Hypnotiq mixed with any dark liquor-Remy,Henni,Crown-) BEFORE KELLZ made his song & vid.

    SO to say people drink this because of rappers is BS
    oh & BTW I have been a connoisseur of REMY VSOP for many years now, CHILLED NO mixer, ice or chasers STRAIGHT baby.

  • kickash

    My brother went to school with a kid named Courvoisier.

  • Bambi2013

    We love Henn… And Henn loves us!

  • Reese

    I drink a few of the products on this list and it’s not because a rapper name dropped it. I love Grey Goose because it’s smooth. I also love Patron even though it gets me into trouble every time. But to be honest 1800 should have been on this list instead of Patron most black people drink that from what I see.

  • staticb62

    They’re dead on with the Henny. After a certain age my friends and I all started gravitating towards Hennessy after many years of drinking whatever and it wasn’t together. It was more like looking up one day and realizing, “you #@$% with Hennessy, too?” I don’t know why so many of us go that direction, but Hennessy is the American Black Man’s drink of choice.

  • heyheynow

    A lot of young well black people that I went to college with like jose it’s the turn up liquor lol but people are right let’s stop with the generalizations even though I do like to mix crown and apple juice

  • Kristen

    Most of these I haven’t tried. And I tried courvoisier for the first time last night.

    • SharonRose

      I like Courvoisier, quite tasty. But then again I like dark drinks.

  • I_am_a_Gladiator/Scandalista

    I’m not going to lie. I had a couple of crown bag o’ pennies lying around my house when I was in my earlier twenties. Lol

    • OSHH

  • Marquis de Sade

    I’m a Pabst Blue Ribbon nyggguh myself, and on a sidenote, that FIREBALL WHISKEY & COKE is right up there with CAPTAIN MORGAN & COKE.

  • beckybeckybecky

    Yes. someone mentioned Remy Martin.

    • OSHH

      Yes Remy VSOP is my winter drink , its smoother than Hennessy which I hate.

  • jeffp1975

    I am black but out of the entire list, I would say Patron is my favorite. Dark liqour, any kind to me , is disgusting. Hate GG, Ciroc is so overrated and not much of a wine person. Infact the only brand I prefer is Belvedere. I’m a vodka guy. Hey Bossip, does that make me black still? GTFOH

    • queen1

      kettle one is that ish on the vodka tip too

    • OSHH

      Yes Ciroc is some BS as far as quality goes. I have to say Belvedere has too much of a bite on it for me, Grey Goose is my fav, its smoother. I have had Kettle one, Three Olives etc

  • nolimit_soldier

    Personally I’d prefer a beer (a cold Budweiser preferably) before I drink any type of liquor (esp dark..I didn’t know I had an alter ego until the day I drunk brown liquor) and if I do drink liquor I prefer gin and juice. My wife stay on that Alizae and fruity type liquor drinks.

  • whynot

    stupid article! waste of time, kmt

  • oppa

    You forgot sizzurp.

  • There we go

    Anything sweet.

  • Deana Becker

    According to this list, I’m in danger of loosing my Black Card.

  • folamix

    I have seen a lot of black folks drink these liquors but they also drink others. Stop generalizing and playing to the stereotypes

  • dingo_egret

    Maybe the title should say, “Liquor Black People Love, BUT Shouldn’t”

    I’ve seen many people flock to these brands. Mostly influenced by music and entertainment.

  • Ebby

    I hate moscato it’s just for cake, and not every black person drink these types of liquors you’ve mentioned. Please stop looping us all in one group.

    • dingo_egret

      Amen!

    • queen1

      i keep telling people moscato is a dessert wine

  • Fair and Balanced

    Well now I have a better understanding of why other cultures feel free to generalize Blacks its no wonder when so many of us are so willing to do it I guess chickens really do come home to roost.

  • OSHH

    No Remy Martin or Merlot mmmmmm
    I don’t partake of but it seems rappers/entertainers can sell anything to the BC.
