DH and I drink but are not BIG drinkers. For us the drink package is not so much about "breaking even" but more about not having to keep track.
We start early by getting regular free cups of coffee, then head to a bar for a sweet shot like Amaretto and make our own "specialty" coffees without the charge.
Also it gives affords the opportunity to not pay for something you don't like. Once at dinner I tried some sort of Italian cocktail and absolutely hated the taste, but felt no guilt in getting a different drink and just leaving it on the table. Normally if I paid $7 - $10 for a drink, I would feel compelled to choke it down anyway. Yuck!
I liken the drink package to having unlimited minutes on a phone service. You can do whatever and just not have to worry about the bill at the end.
