    My liver is probably screwed, I drink rediculous amounts of JD, Vodka, and Absynth (sp?) Problem is I son't know when I've had a lot really.. I just keep going an only realise how much I've had when I stop. I don't get drunk very easily.

    Jack Daniels, single barrel, no ice. Gotta do my best to support the local business. The JD distillery is about a little over an hour from my house.

    during Christmas time parties at my frat in college, we used to serve frozen Rumpleminze shots http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rumpleminze
    100 proof and tastes like cold peppermint candy when stored in the freezer.
    girls drank them up like no tomorrow, and well you know the end result.. either sick, or loose and friendly.
    Rumple Minze is a German-style peppermint schnapps, or liqueur. The brand is owned by the alcoholic beverage holding company Diageo, based in London.[1] The liquor is made by the Scharlachberg Distillery in Germany. It has a strong peppermint taste, and is quite high in alcohol content, at 50% alcohol by volume (100 proof). The top market for this product is the United States. It is served straight (in some cases as a digestif[2]) or it can also be mixed to form various drinks. Rumple Minze's high alcohol content makes it an ideal drink for binge drinking, and has been used as a tool for getting uber-mega-tank-hammered-faced bad on college campuses such as The University of Michigan. It is commonly taken with a "chaser" of chocolate sauce which allows the drinker to consume larger quantities faster, with little or no heavy alcohol taste.

    Gentleman Jack is smoother than Old #7 if drinking it straight up.

    I refuse to participate in any debate with creationists because doing so would give them the "oxygen of respectability" that they want.
    Creationists don't mind being beaten in an argument. What matters to them is that I give them recognition by bothering to argue with them in public.

    we mix Frozen Rumpleminze, with Jager and Goldschlager.

    of course this at my Alum of Ohio University.. where we actually know how to drink, unlike the people mentioned in your wiki quote.

    I have no doubts about you though Mike, i remember your thread from months past.

    I've since slowed my drinking substantially since graduating college.

    a few 20 day benders will really put a damper once the shaking starts.

    Various bottles of Schnapps with all food during Christmas is the tradition here.

    For those of us that is still standin' up around 9pm, are getting served: Laphroiag + Ardbeg Uigeadail + Lagavulin 16 Years + Ardbeg 18 Years

    Later in the evening we round it up with some fine Cognac: Ragnaud-Sabourin Fontvieille 35 and a Havana : Cohiba Piramides Edition Limitada 2006.

    Next day my head hurts like hell!

    ^^LOL, we always celebrated xmas on chritmas eve night at my house growing up after santa got debunked, my mom would take pictures, blah, blah, blah... anyway, right after I graduated college and my brother was still in, I decided to introduce some Rumplmize and Goldschlager shots to the occasion that one year... my dad always had a few mixers during the occasion and I usually had a few beers, as my plans usually included going out with my friends afterwards; so we never really got sloshed... anyway, my brother came home with a bottle of jack too that year... and needless to say we all got slammed under the tree by the time the night was over..

    the next part is what I find funny.. LMAO we had the pictures developed and my mom threw away the negs and refused to put them in the family album...

    anyway, as life tends to do, we all ended up quitting drinking a couple years later... mostly for health reasons. me for abnormal liver tests, my brother and dad because of diabetes, and well my mom never was a drinker really (the only reason she got sloshed that xmas was because of the frozen ruppleminz), so she just quit to be supportive of my dad's decision.

    now, 15 yrs later.. alcohol never makes into any of our get togethers... it's like a long lost time that had it's day and moved on to affect the next generation.

    I've got a bottle of the 06 Abyss sitting in my cellar. along with ~ 100 other beers to choose from, and thats just the cellar, not counting whats in either fridge I could crack a whole bunch of stuff

    04-08 Old Stock ales
    05-08 Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stouts
    05-08 Bigfoots
    Various Aged Expedition Stouts

    My dad actually asked me to get him beer from Xmas to broaden his beer horizons, he had no idea what a stockpile i have. ( I dont live with him)

    Vargher:

    Lagavulin 16 = AMAZING!!!! I just wish it wasnt so expensive here in the US.


    I think my mom wants to drink Bloody Mary's since i've never had one, I tend to stay away from mixed drinks.
