My interesting friend Alcohol

Alcohol is an interesting friend, is it not? Some people can handle it, some people can't. Some people have a good relationship with it, some people don't. Does one grow to love it? Or do some people have a taste for it and some don't? I find myself conflicted. While I like cold beer, wine with food, and the odd Mojito; I can't seem to bring myself to liking straight spirits. Even diluted. I just don't like the flavor of alcohol. Do I need training? Can I help myself to liking Bourbon on the rocks or is it a lost cause? What tricks exist? How does it work for you?
