There's got to be at least one other hard drinker on this forum. Looking to try some of this stuff. Just curious to see what brands are preferred amongst the madman elite.

Have you tried incredible hulks? They aren't to bad if your into hypnotiq and such but then again it is usually drowned out by the cognac. Personally I don't drink as much seeing I have to stay in good condition for sports, college, and such but if it is a special occasion, go hard or go home! I like vodka straight. If I had to give an option of what vodka I like it would have to be Vox, I'm usually a grey goose drinker but Vox went down smooth plus mixes very nicely with other beverages like rasberry and Vox.

Try 7 on 7 or crown on 7 that isn't so bad for casual drinking. If you really hate yourself try Four horsemen, on my 21st that had me going, at first I thought I liked it, key word "like" but the next morning was horrible like mint listerine.

Long island's aren't bad very nice drink right there. I remember on friend's birthday I had some Filipino moonshine of some sort brought in from the Philippines that was 80 proof, wish I remember the name it started with a L. It was a bit smooth like scotch but went down just right and still strong.

You know thats funny I've been drinking it more this summer, and I usually only bring it out for occasions cause it cost so much to import.(USA) I'm starting to prefer it to my mainstays liqueors because the buzz is just noticeably better. Your in very "clear" inebriation.

Anyway with others or ppl who just want to try it. I like this swiss stuff called Le Beue Clandestine. Its very very smooth with a good taste. Strong but not super strong like the 70+ proof stuff. But there is a higher proof version also if you want it. It goes down a little too easy actually, and can sneak up on you. Unfortunately it costly like 10~20 dollars more than other stuff. You'll know the bottle cause it has a picture of a creepy old man on it.

Other ones that are 70+ strong that are good are the called Amer and Strong 68.

I tried preparing it a couple times the right way with sugar cubes and such but it just takes too long. I take improper: as shots or in a lowball straight or mixed.

Toxico, where are you...

I only drink rum, and sometimes sweet wine from the south of France or Italy.
Absinthe is so poseur, if you know what I mean.
On the other hand, there is a place in Paris called La Fée Verte (the green fairy) which is totally frequentable.

"Hayato's spirits of choice" , posted Sat 28 Jul 18:06post reply

I'd recommend you Northern Spain's white Orujo, whose alcoholic percentage varies between 35 and 60 (it depends on the brand).Quite tasteless, albeit fragant to the nostrils and relatively easy to swallow, it's one of my prefered spirits. Experienced customers usually o for home-made ones, but if I were you, I'd go for "Sierra del Oso", which also comes into 2 other variations (mixed with honey or mint herbs).

Kao-Liang (around 65-70% vol.), the Chinese cousin of our Orujo is pretty good as well, although getting a fine brand may be an almost impossible task, at least here in Spain (it's hard to get, out of chinese restaurants).

Oh, and in case you are given the chance, don't hesitate to try Stroh, the Austrian Spirit. Here I have a small bottle of this wonderful beverage, well-kept (i.e. out of my father's reach) in a cupboad of my PC desktop, and its dark orange label reads as follows :

ORIGINAL

Sebastian Stroh Klagenfurt

STROH <<80>>

0.2 l ------- 80% vol

Since 1832

The Spirit of Austria


Well, I ought to warn everyone who is interested on trying it: this is a bitch of a bewerage, only suitable for those who don't care about petty details like smell or flavour, as Austrians left them aside centuries ago. To be more exact, this STROH is a dark-brown fluid (pretty similar in tone to Kikkoman's soy sauce), which stinks like petrol and tastes accordingly. I don't know where this spirit is distilled from, and I think this is for the better. Try to swallow the stuff straight if you appreciate your sense of taste (otherwise you'll lose it for almost half an hour) and drink it on moderate doses if you don't want to end in hospital (1 or 2 tequilla glasses should be enough for an average person to get soaked).


All these 3 spirits make wonders on women (at least on the ones I know), so now you know what to purchase to make them go wild...


And remember dudes : party hard, but safe!!!!

Don't leave us again!

Anyway, I enjoy...basically everything. I'm classy so I enjoy 40s and cheap champagne a lot. I don't mind most types of liquor, but I am a lightweight so I don't go for really strong stuff most of the time. I'm really not that picky. Whatever does the job, really.

I would, however, recommend Sparks (energy drink AND alcohol you say?) to anyone who tends to get sleepy. Never have more than two in a night, though. Your life will be miserable.

I was always unclear about the different types of Absinthe...I gathered there was a tamer variety and then the actual vaguely hallucinagenic kind. Maybe not?

Well, wine and beer are pretty much out of the question here. I wouldn't even dare to include them on any hard drinks list (save for, perhaps EKU 28 beer...), as they are to me what water or Coke or are to usual people (not that I'm a heavy, experienced drunkard, but I tolerate beer quite well and consume it on a regular basis).

Absinthe legally for sale in the US is made without wormwood. Wormwood is what gives it that unique kick. Unfortunately US absinthe leaves ppl a bad impression about it. Plus it doesn't help that the general impression of absinthe is that of a yuppie drink with the snobbery talk and preparations and such. I usually just take it straight in shots or on rocks in a lowball.

Another good drink is Goldschlager. Fairly strong and tastes great. One great mix is Liquid Cocaine. Mix Goldschlager equally with an overproof rum(151+) and Jagermeister.

Another liquer I liking alot is Bombay Sapphire, it makes much better martinis than say tanqueray. Strong yet smooth gin. The way I like it.

Around here if you ask for a Liquid Cocaine, they'll serve ya Jager with pineapple juice and malibu or midori. For those long party nights you can't go wrong with Jager bombs (Jager and red bull) or Irish Car Bombs (a shot of Jager dropped into a pint of Guinness - this is the only time I'll drink a beer other than Yuengling or Singha).

Hehe, Thanks! Yeah, I'm mostly a lurker now... I'm glad to see that most of the same goons have stuck around after all this time.

On topic, I have yet to try absinthe... with or without wormwood. I'm afraid it won't live up to the "hype".

Absinthe made the traditional way has a chemical called "thujone" in it that is structurally similar to THC, which sounds neat, but in reality it does not activate the same receptors in the brain and there are no hallucinogenic effects from consuming it. It is however still extremely high proof and will get you real f***ed up real quick.

I tried some in Spain where it is still legal to purchase. It tasted like lawn clippings and was somewhat unremarkable save for its beautiful color. It basically tasted the same as Pastis, a drink made with star anis, which i would recommend over Absinthe (cheaper, easier to find and sweeter).

It's fun to call Absinthe a "poseur" drink, but you know, it's also fun to find out what it's like for yourself. It can make you feel closer to Van Gogh and Arthur Rimbaud and other cool madmen.

Kinda like how drinking Bai Jiu makes me feel closer to kungfu heroes.

I think I saw the 7th seal too late, I couldn't really feel in the movie... My first Bergman was Cries and Whispers, and I can still feel that shiver down my spine when I just watch the DVD box.

Scenes from a Marriage, The Silence, Saraband... If I had enough time, I would declare this week Bergman week and watch one every day.
Instead, I'll force my friends to watch them with me and listen to the lamentations of their women.

The Seventh Seal will be remembered for so much that it brought to the world of cinema, up to and including paving the way for Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. Whether the late Bergman should be congratulated or pitied for having that as part of his legacy is up to the individual viewer to decide.

Haha, i like how his contributions to cinenema plateau at Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey aka Bill and Ted go to Hell.

*edit, i just noticed my mispelling of "cinema" although, i think it's better i leave it that way.

Also, if this is to be Bergman week don't forget to watch Persona, Fanny and Alexander and Wild Strawberries.

Either way, letting the irish cream sit is not a great idea. Where I'm from, the shot was half Baileys, half Jameson. Jager is never part of an Irish Car Bomb unless your bartender is severely mentally handicapped.

Please, drink more good beer. I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm from NEPA, I love Yuengling, it was the first beer I ever had and I still enjoy it a great deal, it's a damn good beer and all... but there's so much better out there. Please make an effort to find it, you won't be sorry.

The other day a guy told me he wouldn't join us in pounding Key Light (in the interest of getting drunk on a hot day and not paying much money) because he was a "beer snob."

"Oh? What do you drink?"

This is a good one. What does he say to me? "Molson Ice."

I wanted to slam my head through the table.

I know, I know... drink what you like. But I feel like a lot of people don't have a damn clue about half of what's out there. I can still pound cheap beers (after all, I still don't have my degree yet), I can enjoy PBR or High Life in a dive bar, and I can enjoy Delirium Tremens, La Fin Du Monde, hell, last night a friend and I split a bottle of Sam Adams Triple Bock... now THAT is an interesting beer.

A site like beeradvocate.com is a good place to start, and a valuable resource so long as you don't get caught up in snobbery. When people say "I don't drink beer" I feel like the have a specific and narrow image of what beer is, when there are styles so wildly different they don't resemble each other in the slightest, besides that they are both liquids with some alcoholic content. There is a (probably several!) beer for everybody!

Well, considering how many jackass bartenders seem to think vodka is analogous to gin and try to slip a vodka gimlet to me, I wouldn't be surprised if they were all retarded.

I just don't get the very concept of how Jager ended up in someone's "irish car bomb" when half the appeal of the drink was in the lumping together of irish ingredients blah blah blah, and the other half was in the fun of pounding it before the irish cream curdles.

Anyway with others or ppl who just want to try it. I like this swiss stuff called Le Beue Clandestine. Its very very smooth with a good taste. Strong but not super strong like the 70+ proof stuff. But there is a higher proof version also if you want it. It goes down a little too easy actually, and can sneak up on you. Unfortunately it costly like 10~20 dollars more than other stuff. You'll know the bottle cause it has a picture of a creepy old man on it.

Other ones that are 70+ strong that are good are the called Amer and Strong 68.

I tried preparing it a couple times the right way with sugar cubes and such but it just takes too long. I take improper: as shots or in a lowball straight or mixed.


Thanks for the advice! I really do want to try this even if it doesn't live up to the hype. The creepy old man bottle sounds great. Especially since I'll be one of those in the future if I live that long. The sugar cube method sounds tedious. I'd rather through it in a shaker and mix it. What do you mix the stuff with anyway? Thunderbird? Mad Dog 20/20? Nightrain?

You know thats funny I've been drinking it more this summer, and I usually only bring it out for occasions cause it cost so much to import.(USA) I'm starting to prefer it to my mainstays liqueors because the buzz is just noticeably better. Your in very "clear" inebriation.

Anyway with others or ppl who just want to try it. I like this swiss stuff called Le Beue Clandestine. Its very very smooth with a good taste. Strong but not super strong like the 70+ proof stuff. But there is a higher proof version also if you want it. It goes down a little too easy actually, and can sneak up on you. Unfortunately it costly like 10~20 dollars more than other stuff. You'll know the bottle cause it has a picture of a creepy old man on it.

Other ones that are 70+ strong that are good are the called Amer and Strong 68.

I tried preparing it a couple times the right way with sugar cubes and such but it just takes too long. I take improper: as shots or in a lowball straight or mixed.

Thanks for the advice! I really do want to try this even if it doesn't live up to the hype. The creepy old man bottle sounds great. Especially since I'll be one of those in the future if I live that long. The sugar cube method sounds tedious. I'd rather through it in a shaker and mix it. What do you mix the stuff with anyway? Thunderbird? Mad Dog 20/20? Nightrain?

Off topic: Anyone here like limoncello? I like the cream variety better. I've heard it's really easy to make too...



dont tell me you actually drink that shit...
