I hate the smell of beer, and have never tasted it.
I dislike the smell of wine, and have hated every one I've tasted. White, red, some sweet desserty stuff... hated it. Later, I discovered that one of the things I hated about them was the taste of grape juice. (Grapes, however, are yummy, and raisins are okay. Grape juice? Rot in hell.)
I had a taste of Bailey's Irish Cream once. It tasted like tepid chocolate milk with something cold and nasty in it.

I suppose if anything alcoholic is ever to be found that I'd be willing to drink, it'll be one of those fruity things with little umbrellas and stuff. But it won't be a margarita; I got to taste one last summer and all I remember is that it had the cold nasty in it, and that I hated the rest of it.

I'm more annoyed about the fact that I can't find a way to make tea that I'd like, though. (How can people stand scalding their lips with hot water with a faint different taste in the water taste?)

Oh yes, and grape flavored candies. I'd have been so much more willing to take medicine as a child if they didn't insist on flavoring it with that crap!

1) Open box of Twinings tea bags. If you're after a flavour you'll definitely taste, get Assam (malty) or Lapsang Souchong (smoky).
2) Stick teabag in mug and pour on boiling water.
3) Leave for five minutes or so, or at least until the water's turned a very dark brown.
4) Take the teabag out and -- if you opted for Assam or just like milk -- add a little bit of milk.
5) Leave until it's a drinkable temperature. Lapsang's nicer when it's really warm rather than sipping-hot.
