 Datamonitor - Alcoholic drinks manufacturers miss out on the 'midlifer' jackpot - Expert Opinion
However, new Datamonitor research shows that midlifers are being ignored by alcoholic drinks manufacturers who instead continue to regard young adults as the key group to tap into, despite concerns about excessive alcohol intake.
As such, whilst the volume of alcohol consumed by midlifers is decreasing, their adoption of the 'fewer drinks but of better quality' approach, is helping to maintain the high value of this market.
Furthermore, in view of concerns with binge drinking, its impact on health and disorderly behavior, the positive score midlifers attributed to indulgence as a motivating factor in the research, shows intoxication is less important for midlifers than it is for young adults.

 Alcoholic Drinks - Weight Loss
Alcohol is a by-product of yeast digestion (the yeast equivalent of urine) and is known to damage the stomach, kidneys, and liver.
Alcohol adds fat principally by producing cravings for both itself and other carbohydrates (see snack trays at any bar) and even other addictive substances (ask any former smoker.) It is almost impossible to drink alcohol and follow the hunter-gatherer lifestyle.
If you must drink, do so only on special occasions (once or twice a year) and stick to alcohols derived from fruit (wine and champagne.) Be aware, however, that once you have been on the NeanderThin program for any length of time, drinking any form of alcohol could make you queasy.

Advertisements for alcoholic drinks may contain factual statements about product contents, including comparisons, but must not make any other type of health, fitness or weight control claim.

Although all alcoholic drinks have to be labelled with how many standard drinks they contain, the advice was inconsistently sized and placed.

 Bartender Guide to Cocktail Drink Recipes - Pouring Mixed Alcoholic Drinks
To ensure exacting consistency in dispensing prepared cocktail drink recipes, when pouring the round, a good guide for a bartender is to fill the first glass 1/2 - 3/4 full and continue down the line, gently filling each glass with equal amounts and a generous collar.
Decanting mixed alcoholic drinks this way ensures that all the drinks will have a consistent flavor, color and temperature - true to their original cocktail drink recipes - the first being just as good as the last.
Cocktail drink recipes such as Martini Cocktails and Manhattans do not contain ingredients that are difficult to mix or that will readily separate, so you should fill each glass as you go, avoiding any repeat pours into a glass.

The teens in California Friday Night Live (who brought the drafted petition to the board) have support the changes in hopes of curbing underage drinking because their argument is that the drinks pander to a younger demographic.
