Kim Kardashian Explains Why She Recently Started Drinking Coffee and Alcohol: ‘I Just Gotta Let Loose a Little Bit’

Kim Kardashian is known for her strict diets and ‘personal rules’ regarding coffee, alcohol, and other popular indulgences in the world today. In fact, there was a time when Kim K stopped drinking alcohol because she wasn’t a fan of the taste. Now, at the age of 42, it appears she’s having a change of heart. 

In a recent appearance on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop podcast, Kardashian explained some of her new habits and routines that help her stay level-headed throughout what’s normally a busy week for the social media and reality TV star. Two of those new habits include the occasional drink of coffee and alcohol. 

“I started to drink a little bit at the age of 42. Coffee and alcohol. I feel like I just gotta let loose a little bit. Cause why not, you know? I just feel like I work a lot and I focus… all day after school then it’s like product meetings and testing things and packaging meetings and everything,” she explained on Goop.

It’s a rather new development for the mother of four, who has been open about her distaste for alcohol in previous years. For example, she once told PEOPLE that, while her sisters enjoy drinking, she’s not a big fan. “I’ve never really been a drinker. I hate the taste of alcohol,’ she said, adding she doesn’t drink at all. 

In 2018, this was confirmed by an inside source close to Kim Kardashian – who revealed that she rarely drinks, outside of the occasional glass of champagne for celebratory reasons. That sentiment has been confirmed by several other sources, who added that ‘she’s not a partier and it’s just not part of her life.’

That all seems to be changing as we enter a new year in 2023. And when asked why she’s making the sudden change in her life, Kim K gave a fairly relaxed answer. “Cause why not, you know?” she replied – adding that she works far too hard and far too often to not sit back and relax every once and a while. 

“I just don’t ever feel comfortable just laying around doing nothing. So my version of that has been to spend some time with my friends and have a drink and stay out a little bit later, when I probably wouldn’t have done that before,” Kim Kardashian explained to Gwyneth Paltrow on her Goop podcast. 

Did Kim Kardashian Say Tequila is Her Drink of Choice?

Alright, now that we know Kim Kardashian isn’t being a stranger to alcohol in 2023, that leaves us with one major question regarding her newfound indulgence – what’s her favorite drink? It might come as a surprise, especially for someone who doesn’t drink often, but Kim K’s preferred drink is, in fact, Tequila. 

“It just has to be a little shot of pineapple and a shot of tequila. I have two shots and I’m like so good. It’s been fun,” she revealed on Goop. There you have it – she has boarded the Tequila train. The good news is she limits herself to just a few shots – a smart idea for someone who doesn’t want to get too crazy. 

For Kim Kardashian, she feels she has earned it after a long day’s work. “I just feel like I work a lot and I focus… all day after school then it’s like product meetings and testing things and packaging meetings and everything for SKKN,” she continued to explain – referring to all the responsibilities she has on the daily.
