The only time I drink beer is a hot sunny day, then split half and
half with ginger beer, known as a Shandy.

No, that was easy But with beer... what else could I drink when I
was 15/16 on a night out? Wine was hard to like too. I tried
whiskey/coke, rum/chocolate milk, gin/tonic, but that was all very
expensive compared to a glass of Heineken. It took many beers before
it didn't taste like a squeezed out wash cloth anymore.

My friend's parents used to spend time in the nightclub a lot. The funny part was they used to leave him and his sister in the car while they were boozing it up. My friend's dad died a few years ago and he gave my son bottles of the family liquor. This stuff is probably 50 years old. I use the vodka and whisky for cooking. I tasted a sample of the vodka. It sure was warm going down. It had a distinct, musty, taste to it. I was not impressed.

Heh. You made me think of the scene in Mister Roberts where they're making
"Scotch" from grain alcohol. Just a drop of iodine.

I'd say that the only drink that could rival cranberry juice and Vodka is maybe Welch's grape soda:Vodka 1:1

But FOUR Loko's sour grape 14% can rival that.

Even today, I don't know who doesn't do that. And most of the time, the club isn't just a night club.

I was referring to the 1955 film directed by John Ford (and a couple other guys
after he bailed), starring Henry Fonda, Jack Lemmon, James Cagney, and William Powell.
Nominated (FWIW) for Best Picture and it garnered Lemmon a win for Best Supporting Actor.

Before the film were the novel and stage play.

When I was a kid, there was a local TV station that showed old movies at
about 4 pm. I watched a ton of them, impartially enjoying everything from
Mister Roberts to Hellfighters to Beach Blanket Bingo. Same sort of program
on CBC on Sunday afternoons. When I was a teen, there was always something
on at about midnight to 1 am. That's where I saw Fritz Lang's "M" and "The
Monolith Monsters".

Yup, same here, I also remember NBC "Saturday Night At The Movies" when I was a kid, saw some there...

Had a local "Creature Feature" Saturday night show even on our local podunk station, saw all the classics...

First movie I was when I was a kid (I was four in 1959) at our local "Opera House" was "Darby O'Gill and the Little People"...sexy Sean Connery before he was Bond...

"The Monolith Monsters" is interesting, that town they used was a staple set in 50's sci-fi flix, IIRC it was used in "Tarantula!"...

And the best thing about MM to me is the LOVELY Lola Albright, did and still do have a crush on her...she was very under-rated, my flave flick of hers is "A Cold Wind In August"...she was of course songbird Edie Hart in "Peter Gunn"...and played Tuesday Weld's tough waitress mom in "Lord Love a Duck"..

Wiki: "A Cold Wind in August

"In 1961, she starred in Alexander Singer's A Cold Wind in August a low-budget, black-and-white, independent film as a divorced burlesque show stripper in her 30s who becomes involved in a torrid romance with a 17-year-old boy Critic Pauline Kael offered high praise for Albright's performance. In 1985, The New York Times also lauded Albright's acting in the film. With respect to her personal assessment of her role in A Cold Wind in August, Albright said in 1961, "Some people come up to me and say, 'Lola, you shouldn't play that kind of part. It isn't you.' Well, I count to 10, bite my tongue and then tell them that I'm an actress: I don't want to play myself."
