I once tried a jagerbomb
I got pretty wasted on those at a bachelor party a few years ago. You know what the beauty of those is? Certainly not the delicious nature of them. ::)  No hangover at all. Guess it's a nice benefit of the Red Bull, cuz I doubt very much it has anything to do with Jagermeister.

    I guess that would explain why I see Jagermeister shirts and bumper stickers all over campus. Get wasted one night, go to class the next without having the sun be too loud.

    Or maybe it is the price, is it cheap?

    I wouldnt say its cheap here in the clubs its about £3 for a shot, as for the hangover thing I'm lucky enough still at 19 to not get them except when I mix drinks back and forth, im fine if I start with pints then finish with shots but keep going back and forth and I'm like a grizzly with a chainsaw in his mouth come the morning!
     Tbh jag is nice but a mit meh I can spend £3 on a pint and it last longer and I dont get hammered to quickly, though at least when folk mix it with coke you can taste it, unlike vodka whats the point if you cant taste it :hide

      Do you Americans drink alot of alcopops like bacardi breezers? Not a big fan myself, unless they do 3 for £6 them Im over them like a rash :neener

    Its mid-grade as far as liquer goes. I must be the oddball because Jager certainly leaves me hungover. I barely drink any liquor anymore, though, so any hard booze leave me hurtin. A friend bought me a Long Island Iced Tea (without asking what I'd like to drink. I hate that) a few weeks ago and I felt like crap for the rest of the next day.

    Huh, I had always heard you were supposed to drink the hard stuff and then the beer, not vice versa.

    Alcopops? Like the Irn-Bru with alcohol in? I don't think we get that kind of stuff here. Even Irn-Bru is hard enough to find (FDA dislikes it because the orange dye includes carcinogens, have to order it online or get it at a celtic shop).

    Its what I've allways been tough something to do with the escelation of alcohol for example 1 is beer/cider then 2 is wine/ winy type things then 3 is alcopops then 4 is harder spirts and shots. The idea is that once you go past a number you cant go back to it works for me 90% of the time the other 10% it goes well till I start seeing different drinks for cheaper than normall, what can I say I like a bargin  :devillol

    Alcopops is just like Irn-Bru with vodka, but generally its cheap nasty vodka with a bit of colouring and flavour that makes it like kiddies juice, not a real drink imo more for 12-17 yearolds. I love Irn-Bru!!!! The FDA dont like anything do they first haggis is inediable and now Irn-Bru, though I heard it was due to the cane sugar in it not the colourings, though it would explain why Irn-Bru is the only man made substance that can stain anything! and never quite come out.

    George I'm with you on the taste of jag though to be fair though,I normally just throw it down my throat. My Belgium mate Kristof came over and was drinking with us and was drinking the stuff out a mug! needless to say he got the most drunk he has ever been, when he got back to Belgium he was still drunk! He also stuggeled with the ideas of pints as they normally drink just a half at a time.

    Cane sugar shouldn't be a problem, we get that in some pops, though they are always the special ones that come in 12 ounce glass bottles and cost a lot.

    It's been a long time for me; but  as far as I know, those cheap, fruity alcha-pops (including Boone's Farm and wine coolers) are only used by high school boys to separate girls from their panties. Your results may vary.

    It's a "street wine" usually sold in a plastic 2-liter bottle.  Purple in color.  It's actually called MD 20/20.  The MD stands for Mogen David.  "Mad Dog" is slang.

    So that is why screw caps are frowned upon in the "proper" wine culture?  I see.

    Not necessarily.  There are some very good wines with screw caps.

    No, I understand T.  Screw caps are better because they effectively seal oxygen from coming into contact with the wine.  I read that in the past, screw caps were associated with low end wines although that may not be the case today.

    Beer-  If it's twist top, it ain't.

    Wine-  If it's in a box, it ain't.

    Vodka, bourbon, whiskey, and tequila('ta kill 'ya.  Nnaasssttyy stuff, regardless of brand. Blech :vomit) and other distilled spirits-  If it's in a plastic bottle it ain't.

    If we're talkin' favorites now, give me a good whiskey, bourbon, or scotch. Like the bottle of Crown Royal XR I'm looking at right now on my entertainment center.  Hum.  Back in a moment or two.......

    What are you drinking today?  Because I'm having water :banghead

    California laws suck so much that I can't even purchase non-alcoholic beer (even though it would probably take me about a whole truck load to get drunk @ 0.05% ABV).

    FMJ-

    Easy man.  There will be plenty of  plenty of time to spend too much money on alcohol after you're old enough. 

    Also-  While we are having fun with this thread, always remember alcohol is a fine servant, but one of the most cruel masters you could ever meet.
