Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- While it has long been clear that many teenagers drink alcohol, experts have never been certain what they’re drinking. Did you know the favorite alcoholic beverage of underage drinkers is beer, and their favorite beer is Budweiser?
Researchers surveyed a representative national sample of more than 1,000 boys and girls aged 13 to 20 of varying ethnicities and socioeconomic levels. All had consumed at least one alcoholic drink in the previous month.
Almost 70 percent had had either beer or hard liquor, and half had consumed a flavored alcoholic drink.
Bud Light was the beer of choice, followed by Budweiser and Coors Light.
Smirnoff vodkas were the number one choice for hard liquor, followed by Jack Daniel's bourbons.
