Does Jennifer Aniston Drink Alcohol?

Best known for her role as Rachel Green on the hit sitcom “Friends,” Jennifer Aniston has for decades captivated the masses with her talent, beauty, and class. At 51, the actress is passionate about exercise, healthy eating, and taking good care of herself.

While health is a priority in the star’s life, one has to ask: how does Aniston feel about alcohol consumption?

Philosophy on Healthy Living

For Aniston, living a healthy life requires discipline and consistency, without being too crazy. She told Yahoo Food in 2016, “My general philosophy is to eat healthy. It’s pretty clear: eat as much organic fruits and veggies as you can, keep sugar [intake] low, drink tons and tons of water, and get good sleep.”

According to a CNBC article written in 2019, Jennifer Aniston’s daily wellness routine includes celery juice first thing in the morning and intermittent fasting every day. Despite the apparent rigidity of this routine, Anniston allows herself a “cheat day” on Sundays, but doesn’t specify what she eats or drinks on that day.

So where does alcohol consumption fit into the star’s diet and wellness routines? Well, it appears that she sometimes makes an exception.

Her Signature Margarita

A 2018 article by Today recounts an interview with Aniston in which she practiced her mixology skills by making her signature margarita. Keeping with her healthy principles, Aniston’s margarita recipe is sugar-free. “It’s a cleaner margarita,” says Aniston, “No sugar, no mixes, no agave.”

The recipe is simple: “It’s basically silver tequila with lime juice shaken and over rocks,” says Aniston. In a recent video with Interview Magazine, it’s clear that Aniston still loves a margarita. “Not too sweet, no Cointreau, no sugar,” she says, and it must be “shaken really aggressively so that it dilutes it slightly.” And to finish, just a little bit of salt on the rim.

Her Favorite Tequila

In the same 2015 article by Yahoo, Aniston states that she loves Patron. The star also enjoys sipping on Don Julio 1942, even though it is sweeter than most tequilas, something she doesn’t usually like.

Celebratory Champagne

In an Instagram post from September 20, 2020, Aniston is sat posed getting ready for the Emmys with a glass of champagne in hand. “Emmys prep,” the star writes.

Drinking Wine

In the past, it was rumored that Jennifer Aniston could “easily down a bottle of wine.” According to an article from entertainment.ie, Jennifer and her ex-husband Justin Theroux have had some disagreements when it comes to Jennifer’s drinking habits.

Theroux even suggested that the couple have an alcohol-free wedding, an idea that was apparently shot down by Aniston. The article also indicated that “Jennifer loves wine,” and during her relationship with Theroux would often have two to three glasses per night.

While Jennifer might still enjoy the taste of wine, she likely enjoys it a little less often these days. Based on her recent interviews, when Jennifer does choose to indulge in an alcoholic drink, it will probably be her signature margarita or a celebratory glass of bubbly during an award night.


Yes, Jennifer Aniston does drink alcohol. Aniston’s go-to drink is her signature margarita served on the rocks. But if she is attending an award show or event, Jennifer will likely sip on champagne.

Aniston’s health is very important to her, but she doesn’t always sacrifice having fun and enjoying life. It seems like as long as the sugar is kept out of her margarita, all is good.
