Let Me Buy You A Drink… Liquor Black People Love

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.


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.


Hennessy and black people have a special relationship. We love Henny and Henny loves us back. They are major contributors to the Thurgood Marshal Scholarship fund, the Tuskegee Institute, and the National Urban League. They even made a limited edition bottle for Obama’s innauguration and gave the proceeds to charity.

Amaretto Sour

An Amaretto Sour is a great date drink. It’s delicious and low in alcohol. He can buy you a few without causing anything worse than a mild buzz.


Do black folks genuinely love Ciroc? Or are we afraid that Diddy’s going to jump out from behind a bush and hit us with a bottle if we try to order anything else?.


If Hennessy is the official drink of the black community, Hypnotiq might be the official aphrodisiac. Brothers love to pull it out when there’s a lady coming over.


Some black folks love Alize so much that they name their kids after it. Maybe because they were conceived to it, while listening to Tupac rap about it on CD.


No one’s going to mistake you for an alcohol connoisseur when you order a bottle of Nuvo at the bar. But it’s pink, bubbly and sweet — what’s not to like?

Crown Royal

You can spot a Crown Royal drinker by the little purple bags full of batteries and loose change stashed all over the house.


I can’t figure out if black people love Patron because it’s deliciously smooth, rap famous, or stored in those beautiful hand-blown bottles. Whyever you drink it, you’re sure to find that it has just enough alcohol content to get you into trouble.

Grey Goose

Grey Goose used to be hip hop vodka royalty until Diddy attacked a man with ice cubes at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards after party for ordering it at the bar. Grey Goose is going to have to offer a witness protection program if they want their customer base to go back up.

White Zinfandel

It might just be the number one dinner wine in the black community.


I can’t even think about Courvoisier without reciting all the lyrics to this song. Everybody sing it now…


Corona and beer might as well be synonyms as well as some of us are concerned.

The 40 oz.

They’re affordable…and that’s about the only good thing you can say about them.

Moët & Chandon

We don’t know anyone who’s ever said “no” to a bottle of Mo.
