    The new nastiest - best price for drunk beverage is this strong beer from south africa - Crest. It taste's absolutly nasty... but its 10% alcohol and comes in 500 ml cans for like 2 bucks :)

    2 of these is the same as drinking a regular six pack and can be done in 10 mins with motivation. Great for pre-drinking. They're in purple cans.

    10:30 complety sober. 10:40 nicely hammered :p

    Also anyone ever bought the completely legal bacardi 151 (or 75.5% alcohol) pricey and tastes like lava but effective none the less.

    oh and on the topic of Gin. That lemon gin is scrum dilly, one of the few drinks I can drink straight.

    Also I heard a rumour that drinking Gin doesn't make you impotent as most alcohol does :) Any merit to this statement?

    Tanqueray. Absolutely hands down. I'm convinced that people drink Bombay because it is trendy, slightly more expensive and it's blue so chicks dig it. ;)

    Happy Monday and YEAH CANADA!!! GOLD BABY, GOLD!

    Quintessential is available at the LCBO, but it is pricey.
    It's name is a pun on the quintessence and the fact that it is distilled and filtered five times.

    I find that tanq 10 and sapphire taste the same in that both have a slight tainted-gin flavour. The tanq 10 is more citrussy (than gin), as you mentioned, but only slightly, whereas the sapphire is (slightly) more anissy than regular gin. The anise can go skunky if the bottle is old, warm, or left open... this I ran into a couple times and didn't like. Of course, I drank it anyways.

    Regarding smuggling:
    1. Acquire 1 box of large, heavy duty zip lock bags.
    2. Pour contents of mickey (or more) into one bag.
    3. Ensure bag can be pressed flattish -- ie. dont put too much into the ziplock
    4. Tightly seal the ziplock
    5. Put the gin ziplock inside another ziplock
    6. Into the second ziplock, cut verticle slits large enough to weave a belt through
    7. Put on pants
    8. Weave belt through pants and through zip lock bag
    9. Use forethought - execute step 6 so that the bag slits are concealed
    A. Hang gin bag inside pants infront of crotch like 2nd scrotum
    B. Once inside bar, order 2 gin and tonics as usual.
    C. Consume one of the drinks for good measure. Empty ice.
    D. At seated, inconspicuous area, discretely pretend to adjust testicles while removing gin bags.
    E. Pour contents of gin bag into emptied cup
    F. Use smuggled gin to (heavily) fortify consecutive gin and tonics
    10. Do not attempt to order tonic sans gin to save money.. it will arouse suspicion in the bartender

    This method can save you hundreds of dollars per night. It is nearly impossible to detect the bag by frisking. If you -really- go overboard and put in a 750mL, the bouncer will probably feel it but honestly they think it is your penis and kinda immediately shuffle you in. If you were a chick they'd probably just think you're fat.

    re: impotence
    In moderate quantities alcohol will improve the turgor pressure of your erection due to vasodilation. However a bit more and yeah it can be problematic. If you are referring to this type of acute impotence, I don't see how gin is any less debilitating than any other. Gin however (well, gin and tonic) is effective against malaria. In fact that's how gin and tonic came to be: tonic was medicine to prevent malaria (hence the name) and since it tasted so horrible the english decided to add gin to at least make it fun. Over time the amount of quinine has been reduced to taste. YAY. Quinine is also mildly psychoactive; malaria pills induce vivid dreams.

    Speaking of TONIC ... does this beverage have any realistic use beyond mixing with gin? Or any other alcoholic beverage for that matter?

    The reason I'm asking is because supermarkets seem to sell DIET TONIC water. They use aspartame instead of sugar. Why in god's name would anyone use a diet beverage for mixing with alcohol? The lack of sugar would certainly render the drink unpalatable.

    Who buys this stuff, what do they use it for, and how much extra weight are you going to put on by switching to regular tonic?

    Just curious.

    as my old boss used to say "i love tonic, it reminds me of gin"...i believe that is tonic's only purpose.

    regarding the debate, i swear by the Bombay Saphire. i take it on the rocks, no micing involved. i don't really care to hide the taste of such a sublime beverage.

    Has anyone here ever tried Aquavit? I grew up on the stuff, and every time I mention it, no one has ever heard of it.

    You can get it at some liquor stores. The bottle has a white label that reads "Aalborg Akvavit". There are two types: Carraway and dill. Get carraway. Serve chilled. It goes very well with pickled herring.

    a lot of people drink Tonic by itself, kinda like Perrier. It;s actually not too bad and if you want something to drink that's not sweet it refreshing.

    i reiterate again, vodka has no flavour. there really isn't anything to like about vodka other than what you mix with it. which can be basically anything liquid. it's amazing in that aspect, but other than that it's quite pointless.

    ^ But its too much work to go all the way downstairs and make another hot chocolate. I was just getting straight to the point.
    Maybe next time we can make a giant hot chocolate instead of making a new one every time.



    Thank you for the L.S.G. record.

    HOSS! Does your nickname mean "schoolgirls underwear" in japanese?

    As far as Gin goes, Bombay Sapphire is the way to go. And beefeater is one step up from pine sol.

    My mighty norwegian friend always had Aquavit.
    It was... ahem... potent..
    Not sure if I'm a fan.

    Speaking of not being a fan, I have also drank that Crest stuff. TrevOR's dad "bobbo" always brings it to the gypsies in waterloo's urban forests. There it is drank in mighty quantities.

    How they stand the stuff? I don't know. I am guessing you need lots of weed first.
