46 Ways Alcohol Is Being Glamorized

From Luxury Liquor to Mary Delgado's Arrest

— November 19, 2008 — Lifestyle
It sounds like Mary Delgado, the winner of The Bachelor, enjoys her booze a little too much. She was arrested for public intoxication.

It seems with all the marketing that goes into alcohol, from hip packaging, to engaging advertising campaigns, people are more attracted to alcohol than ever. Add to the mix that celebrities glamorize clubbing and make public intoxication look OK, and it’s no wonder pseudo celebs like Mary Delgado have joined the mug shot mavens.

Factor in tough economic times, and it won’t really be all that surprising if binge drinking increases in the new year.

With that said, the slideshow below highlights some of the most creative, interesting and shocking drinking trends of the year.
