Berry Punch by harwicks-art Berry Punch by harwicks-art
Poor Berry Punch. Drink directly from the punch bowl at one little party, and everyone suspects that you may have a problem. Still, she's a fun background pony for having displayed more of a distinct action than most, and who can really blame a pony for cutting lose now and then in social situations?

Of course, not all fans go the lush route, which is always nice to see. I've seen speculation of her being related to Cheerilee as well, and they do have some similarities (even if we've seen such things don't often run in the family.)

Berry Punch is funnier after you know that horses have a much higher average tolerance to alcohol than humans. So however much got her drunk would probably kill a human.

I personally took the her "sneaking a sip" as "I' know I should get a cup, but..f*ck it." I mean guys (and girls like me) drink straight out of liquid containers rather than pouring a predetermined amount of it into a cup.

In other words: It's just punch, not the spiked stuff; I mean it was a kid friendly party, so I doubt alcohol would be served. If ponies even have alcohol...You think they would with all the grains and most likely something that's like hops. I personally despise alcohol, and see big bottles of alcohol as giant molotov cocktails waiting to be used.

The apple cider the ponies drink is alcoholic because only alcoholic cider foams at the top.

By that logic, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, the ponies with the biggest cider addictions, are the town drunks, not Berry Punch.


That would probably make for some good art, now that I think about it.

I find the idea quite funny. An alcoholic pony ^^
Albeit her booze hound reputation is quite exaggerated. If anything, Dash is the one that seems to have a problem.

I really like your take of her in this portrait. A little tipsy, but not overboard. 
A lovely horsey smile and a drink in hand. What more could you ask for in a mare :p

It's just a product that Berry fandon be an alcoholic, to drink from the punch bowl just was for skiing, it is likely that in reality she is a good girl, even a very smart as Twilight sparkle, but who knows.

Indeed...  She could be quite conservative for all we know.  Then again, Lauren Faust did suggest "Pinot Noir" (her drink of choice) as the pony's name.

Poor Berry Punch, ever portrayed as Ponyville's resident lush by the fandom... perhaps she honestly does just enjoy a good, genuine non-alcoholic fruit smoothie on a very regular basis! Whatever the case though, I do have to tell you that this is probably the best take on a tipsy pony that I have ever seen, out of all of the fanart I can ever remember coming across. That lopsided grin and droopy-eyed stare were captured perfectly, and seeing this sort of thing as often as I do, working on the borders of wine country at the end of the tasting tour I should know.

I like to think of Berry Punch as more of a social drinker, an aficionado who appreciates a good wine and indulges regularly, but not a drunkard who's unable to control herself. That's not to say I can't imagine that she sometimes has a few too many - but when you really think about it, that's hardly damning.

And cute picture! She's really enjoying herself there, isn't she.

I agree...  There's no need to confine her to falling-down drunk.  Admittedly, it's more fun to draw a drunk pony than a responsible drinker...
