* Also inverted by WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd. While the nerd drinks Rolling Rock and Yuengling, James drinks water while shooting, as evidenced by the transparency of the supposed beverages.

* In a hilarious ingame joke in SquareEnix's ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', one of the bartenders will offer you a "frothy mug of scuttlebutt." For those who don't know, scuttlebutt is an old sailor's term for water. If your character turns him down he laughs uproariously and says that you're not very quick on the uptake for jokes. Then again, this joke is somewhat serious; after accepting the "frothy mug of scuttlebutt" the bartender relates to you how he almost died of thirst one time and how sweet tasting water truly is.

The reason for deleting the tomato juice example was because it was a workplace's cafeteria. It hardly seems likely they allow actual alcohol there. As for the PLVSAA one, it literally is just juice and it's used for a joke (Luke asks "if it's just juice why can't kids solve it?", and Rouge says it's because the one who solves it will become her soulmate.)
** On the other hand ''Justice for All'' had the same wine bottle of ''tomato'' juice. That wouldn't be ''tomato wine'' in Japan...would it? ** And then in ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVersusAceAttorney'', bartender Rouge offers Phoenix a glass of juice that is only for adults. But it's still juice.

* ''[[UchuuSenkanYamato Star Blazers]]'' had the doctor constantly soused on ''spring [[color:blue:water]]''. Given the context, though, it might as well count as {{Woolseyism}}. Also, toasting with sake was changed to toasting "with [[color:blue:water]] from a favourite spring on Earth". [[note]]Earth has been devastated so that last remaining pure spring water provides a surprisingly moving reminder of what everyone is fighting for.[[/note]]

* Averted in the shojo family-friendly series [[Main/ChibiMarukoChan Chibi Maruko Chan]], where Maruko's dad--and occasionally her grandpa--is often depicted drinking alcoholic beverages with no censorship. In one "maki" in the 9th tankoban and its anime adaptation as the final episode of the first series (1990-1992), Maruko's dad gives her a sip of sake: She spends the rest of the episode quite clearly intoxicated, along with her father and grandfather, singing and dancing.

** On the other hand, most characters in the Narnia chronicles happily take strong waters on suitable occasions, and anyone who doesn't drink or smoke is something of an oddity, including Eustace's parents. In [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader]], Edmund and Lucy are happily quaffing mead within a short time of returning to Narnia -- though in Narnia they count as honorary adults up to and including being skilled warriors.

* In [[DiaryOfAWimpyKid Rodrick Rules]], Greg's mom takes issue with him playing a game called "Magick and Monsters"--- not for the monsters, but for the fact that characters consume pints of mead (fermented honey wine) in the game. As a result, she makes him substitute "drink" for mead.

* Actors generally don't drink real alcohol on set, as the scenes have to be shot many times (making it [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HilarityEnsues disastrous if they used the real deal]]). Thus, water is used to simulate clear alcohols like gin, and steeped tea is used to simulate darker alcohols like bourbon.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "Bad Timing", Lumpy Space Princess goes to a tavern and drowns her sorrows in cucumber water. The fact that some gin and tonic recipes call for a cucumber as a garnish doesn't help.
