In this paper an analysis is made of beverage preferences and their effect on alcohol consumption patterns.
For this purpose we have used the 1993 Spanish National Household Health Survey conducted on members of the population aged 16 or over.
Beer and spirits are consumed more frequently by young people and wine by older people.
The most consumed daily drink is wine and beer on a weekly basis.
Men always drank more frequently and consumed a greater number of drinks per occasion than women for the three types of drink analyzed.
The study shows that beverage preference is an important factor in the characterization of alcohol use patterns.
