Girls and Drinking
About one-third of teenage girls have tried “girlie drinks,” or sweet-flavored malt beverages, which they prefer to other forms of alcohol, according to polling commissioned by the American Medical Association.
The Chicago-based professional organization for physicians expressed worry in a statement that such drinks, also known as “alcopops,” are being marketed by the liquor industry directly to young people.
The AMA commissioned two surveys: one of 741 adolescents, ages 12 to 18; the other of 2,768 adults age 21 or older.
