What would the races of Middle-Earth drink?

I suppose I should start by saying that when these thoughts were created, I had already gone through a half a bag of M&Ms, so if nothing makes sense, I apologize. Anywho...

Those of us who are familiar with Lord of the Rings or the Hobbit(the book, not the movie) or any of Tolkien's other works know that ale and wine are the popular alcoholic drinks in Middle Earth. Last night, however, my family and I were eating chocolate brainstorming intelligent ideas and I, as usual, brought up Lord of the Rings(you should know that I have a knack or bringing Lord of the Rings into any situation. It's a blessing and a curse).

Somehow, we got on the topic of the drinking game in the Return of the King movie(this scene wasn't in the book). Someone said that they could picture elves drinking white wine spritzers. I think that she was implying that they were prudes or something, but since I don't drink, I wouldn't know if a white wine spritzer was a prudish drink or not.

Anyways, this started a whole conversation about which drink really suited the personalities of the races of Middle Earth. Here's what we came up with:

Elves - White wine spritzers

Dwarves- Jack Daniels or stout ale

Men- Beer

Hobbits- Apple juice(when they really need a drink, they drink hard apple cider)

Comment below what you think the races of Middle Earth would drink. Seriously guys, Google's scary stalker monitor tells me that at least three people have read this blog. Can at least one of you comment?

Anyways, thanks for reading my chocolate-frenzied post. Have a good day.
