Assunto:  preferably or preferentially?
 
Mensagem:  It is my understanding that preferable refers to the desirability of one thing/person/action over another, but preferential refers to special privieges or decisions given to one thing/person/action over another.

I see beer as preferable to cachaça. 
If I were buying liquor, I would give preference to beer.

Does that make sense to you?
