Bit late to the thread but Pastis, Ricard etc was introduced as imitation absinthe after abs was banned as a curse in working classes

Otherwise good work all, covered most worthwhile drinks and associated tortures

Also heard something about other liquor companies spreading misinformation about absinthe in order to snuff out the competition it would have brought.

Granted it may not have been a large enough volume, but I've never had any hallucinogenic or otherwise psychoactive experiences with absinthe, even the kind that had artemisia absinthia, or grande wormwood, or some such.

What do you mean about the working class, though?

Sorry I'm on my phone. The French proles were getting so wankered on absinthe that it was banned and Pernod, Ricard etc introduced as a slightly weaker substitute. This was the French version of prohibition and another reason France is the most civilised nation on Earth.

Ah sweet mystery of drink, can no longer distinguish happy and sad only a familiar haze of friendship

Anyone try Everclear, or some other 200 proof neutral grain alcohol? Don't think I ever did - even smelling it was offensive.

But there was this one kid who gung-ho went ahead and shot it down and within moments pivoted and darted to the bathroom to puke it up. I don't believe all bottles have a "flammable" warning on them, but this stuff did.

Anyway, it was perfect for Budget Punch.

What about hot beer with cloves and vodka? I had it in Poland, you walk to the top of the hill in the snow, and you have a nice hot beer with a few cloves at the bottom, then they slosh in two shots of steaming vodka like its a lager tip or something. Class.

One of the Greeks at university had a bottle of Bacardi so strong it had a pepper shaker nozzle cos could explode if poured too near a lit cigarette

I've never even heard of a hot beer, but that makes me wonder about the prospects of some hot dark ale.

Great drink for lads night out but actually foul smelling and tasting
 
I like White Russians, although they go down a bit too easily and all the milk plays havoc with your stomach. Mojitos are good.

all true sons of England have done it. Craner too even though he's Welsh. He's done it loads.

you should hear craner's stories about all the different locations in his house he's had a piss its brilliant.
 
One of my dad's mates did a shit in someone's wellington when he stayed at their house and they found a big log hanging out the top the next morning. That same bloke also found his girlfriend passed out on the toilet and just spread her legs, perched on the front of the seat and shat between them then left her there and went to bed.
