What's Your State Beverage?

OK, so everyone knows their state flower and bird ..... right? Well even if you don't, you must know your state beverage. Here's the exec summary from some mildly trustable website....

18 States claim milk as their state beverage (LAME!). NY claimed it first in 1981, so the rest of you states need to find something else.

2 States claim branded soft drinks. Kool-Aid for Nebraska and Moxie for Maine. MOXIE? Are you serious? Have you ever drank that stuff? Holy crap, this one needs to be overturned by the state supreme court. But apparently Maine has a real "sweet" spot for the stuff.

South Carolina claims "South Carolina Grown Tea". Screw the Chinese.

And the winner... the only state that has the balls to claim an alcoholic beverage... Alabama with "Conecuh Ridge Alabama Fine Whiskey". I wonder what Clyde May paid for that?

And if state beverages don't do it for you, maybe you want to look up your official state dirt. NY's is Honeoye.

I'm surprised the Hawaiian State Beverage isn't the Mai Tai.

Yeah, that surprises me too. You can't do anything without someone pushing a Mai Tai on you.... or a glass of POG.
