In terms of alcohol obviously it's whiskey. Good whiskey not cheap whiskey. No ice and no mixer. Stones are acceptable.
Second would probably be red wine.

That's not necessarily true, if you ever go out at a weekend you will see many people that are visibly very drunk and having a horrible time. Alcohol doesn't make things better, it makes you care less and forget things quickly so it's easier to have a good time but this also makes it possible for this to make things worse - especially given the physical effects. It's not a coincidence that alcohol makes people a million times more likely to start fights for trivial reasons. It's just better if everyone is sober.

The fact that a social lubricant seems necessary shows that something has already gone wrong. You should have everything you need to socialise naturally, if you need to chemically force yourself to want to talk to people then is that really a place you want to be?

Also notice how hanging around drunk people when you're sober is very much the opposite of fun, the experiences you're having are only fun because alcohol is making you retarded. If you were sober you might want to leave and do something actually interesting.

I mean that last part was kinda my point. When everyone is on the same wavelength social drinking is great. When you aren't drinking but your friends are it fucking sucks. And as with everything basically the dose makes the poison. Blackout drunk isn't fun. Being hungover isn't fun. Having a couple of drinks at an event or with friends is fun. Everything you said is right, but drinking isn't all black and white.

A social lubricant isn't necessary. It's more of an added bonus. Especially when it comes to romantic or sexual socializing. Just ask couples you know how they got together the first time. Alcohol is gonna be involved many times because it makes us feel less vulnerable and more open. Again, not the greatest sign for society but depending on the context even well-spoken, open-minded anf extroverted people can act like social retards.

Once again in the 21st century people approach sex like complete and utter degenerates. If you don't want to have sex immediately unless alcohol is involved maybe that's because it's degenerate and your natural instincts are right. If you don't feel open when you're sober then maybe that's good.

People have always got liquored up to lower their inhibitions. It's the most natural thing in the world. If our inhibitions were that low all the time, it would make society impossible.

Actually the most natural thing in the world would be your baseline inhibitions and general mindstate. What's actually unnatural is giving yourself small doses of poison to make you forget you'd rather be somewhere else.
>Likewise hanging around sober people when you're drunk. It's just two different mindsets. There's no reason to think the stuff you do with friends while drunk is less "interesting" than the stuff you do with friends while sober
Hanging around sober people when you're drunk isn't annoying and boring like hanging out with drunk people is, it's just fucking sad and awkward because you're the only person acting the fool.

It's less "interesting" in that it's a purely consumerist activity. In the western world people spend more time on drinking than they generally do on any real personal passions. It's not "bad", not any more so than playing video games or watching football.

And I don't buy the propaganda that drinking is "social" at all. In fact I'm very suspicious of "socially" doing any activity that costs money. It seems to be that there's some marketing guru out there in retirement laughing his ass off everytime he remembers that everyday millions of people buy alcohol just because their friends are doing it.

For me it took a while. First time I tried whiskey i wanted to die. It was disgusting.
A few months later I tried it again and it was bad but not terrible. It had an interesting taste that wasn't bad, it just didn't click for me.
A few months later again I tried it and for the first time I got it. I held it in my mouth and just tasted the flavors. Once the alcohol burn ends you actually have these flavors that are pretty good. So I kept drinking it and the more you do it the less of a burn you feel and taste until you reach a point where you're really just enjoying the whiskey.
It's definitely an acquired thing, and it wasn't overnight, but once I "got it" it became a lot of fun to relax and sip whiskey
