So does that mean it's lemon flavored? Nothing lemon flavored can be manly. A manly drink, ironically, is the green fairy known as absinthe. Why the irony? Well, for whatever reason, homosexuality isn't perceived as manly. Don't ask me, I have no idea why. Anyway, absinthe is so manly, that Congress banned it for being too manly for anybody to handle.

who cares? if you like it drink it, make up for the lack of manliness in the drink by beating up a random dude later in the night.

There's no such thing as a manly drink. It's a drink.

  1. What's a limoncello (I'm assuming it's a coctail of some description, but what's in it)?
  2. What's a manly drink? It's a drink. If you like it, drink it, if you don't, don't. Simple. Assigning gender stereotypes to a drink is stupid and pointless.

I knew you'd say something like that. You always type in girly sentences.

But once a drink is lemon flavored, all manliness is drained from it. Have you ever seen a man drink water with a lemon wedge? NO! And absinthe is still the manlier drink.

Drinking pure lighter fluid would be manly.  Also standard petrol gasoline is rather masculine as well.

Oh we're talking alcohol? I didn't understand anything in this thread until I read "Cosmopolitan."

I'v heard of them, but never had one.  Think they drink them a lot in Europe.  It's Italian right? 

Manly to me would be something the burns so smooth you lose your voice for the rest of the night and have a 3 day long hangover coupled by a persistent cough.   Like Carolina Moonshine, 30+ year old whiskey, homemade Vodka or anything that makes you hallucinate with the possibility of making you blind.

Also something like a homemade Ale or something hardy.  Like a Guinness.  Drinks like a meal.


MANLY!!!
MANLY!!!

Short answer is no. Any drink that has a name usually isn't manly. A manly drink burns and is not tainted with fruit, or atleast that is what they say.

Danny DeVito is a manly man, so limoncello is a manly drink.

All drinks have names, so that doesn't make much sense..

Yeah, pure alcohol, the drink has to be diluted before it's ready.

Yes, it is Italian. I drank it Italy, never have here back in the States however.

As for "manly"... bleh. I was going to say German Bavarian beers...but then remember all the women at Oktoberfest...yeah, everyone drinks it!
