Found a good brew? Bought an expensive and special spirit? Mixed together great cocktails?

Let us know...



In the wake of the Ginger Germ Crisis I encountered on the train today, the idea was to kill those germs straight away with some alcohol and this got us to talk.


I myself am a great fan of Baileys but (sadly) it seems to be more of a women drink. I enjoy it nonetheless.

Also got a nice Havana Club bottle for my birthday last month since I am a massive Havana Club / Cuba Libre fan.

If you like whiskey then try Redbreast its not a cheap option but it is so smooth. More of a drink for special occasions. Out of all the whiskeys I have tried it is the best.

Now for a drink if you want to get wasted TVR tequila, vodka and redbull.

The flavored Belgian beers are good from what I remember but can not think of the brands off hand. If you like beers then a long weekend in Belgium is well worth it but beware the % are high.

Redknapp69

TVR do fuck you up - I hate tequila!

Ill always remember drinking Duvel (Belgium Beer) on a college trip when I was 18. Had 4 of them and was mullered. Didn't realise it was 8.5% tho!

Been hitting the beers and baileys tonight to the footie

dryrain
07-09-13, 04:22 PM
To be honest I have not had a TVR for about 7 years for me its all the worst drinks put together. But at the time it did the job. Sounds about right for belgium beers I had one which was over 10% more like drinking wine.

I had tequila at a mexican bar in London and they must have had about 20 different kinds. It was nothing like the stuff you normally get in bars quite smooth you could drink it slowly like a whiskey. I guess its like all spirits they vary in quality.

I very rarely drink beer. Usually keeps my track on cider (found this new pineapple cider that is se-weeeet!!!), a kind of raspberry wine and other sweet stuff that's not beer. And of course, punsch. Think it's a kinda scandinavian thing and in Sweden it's most consumed by elder people or students. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punsch

Costs that for a pint of Carling in the SoHo in Penang!! A #@$%&! PINT of pisswater!

Leffe or Ciney was my goto in Belgium... Duvel tastes like 9%, I'm just reminded of Tennent's Super's. The Hoegaarden lagers are nice tho... Cesar or Julius? Pretty sure I got caught out one day by one called Judas - quaffable blond, but couldn't get up to empty my bladder!

This thread just makes me jealous... can't get sh!t except a Chang-over. The only godsend is picking up a reasonable whisky at the border - specials on 3l of Glen Morangie (not my tipple of choice), Laphroig for a good price (no-one here will go near it! :) and picked up a beautiful 16yo Jura for Ne'erday.

Guess I'll stick (am stuck) with Leo!

Didn't think the exchange rate was that good. That's a pint and a good deal tho. Normally pints are $8.50-$11. Depends where you go. Schooners are around $6. Which is 2/3 pint.

Fucking expensive.

I remember paying 3.50 for a pint at kings cross last year when I was home.

After taking a liking to gin and tonic. Though 16 of them at a wedding gets rather pricey

Being a coeliac its either drinking half ones or pints of cider. After nearly 20 years drinking cider can't stand it any more. Even though a bottle of Stella Cidre still appeals, just don't sell it anywhere but the offy

I hardly ever drink out at places that are not student nations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nations_in_Swedish_universities) so I'm not completely sure. But that sounds too much. However, buying it at the state-owned monopoly store is what differs the most from the prices in other countries I guess. I stick with my cheap stuff, tried this for the first time this weekend and it was far above expectations!
https://bezzegasvedek.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/kung.jpg

For comparison, I think that Explorer is the cheapest vodka they've got, it costs 191 SEK (which translates to €20,5) for 0.7 liters.
