That one liquor you had a bad moment with
My bottles of Blavod arrived today. Good times.

While discussing liquor with Mark, we talked about that one liquor. Almost everyone's got that one liquor that they had a bad moment with, often in high school or college, that they can't even touch without feeling sick. For me it was rum after bad moments in high school and college (but I've recovered), for Mark it's gin. I theorized that for most people, that one liquor that's ruined for them is tequila. So what about you, my droogs? What's that one liquor that makes you feel like Barfy just thinking about?

JD is evil..

I was at my best friend's party and we were all drinking beer.. lots of beer..

and then my friend pulls out a bottle of JD whiskey. He pours me a (double 11 oz) glass full of it. Being the drunk person I was, drank it all in one tip of the glass.

Needless to say, I was one sick puppy..

Beer before liquor, never sicker!

Ah, rum

I decided this would be my hard liquor of choice freshman year. I drank half a liter of it one night, then went to a suite party, drank one can of Meister Braw, and proceeded to throw up in the sink. I earned the nickname "Barfy" amongst a group of people (I believe the suite belonged to female athletes) that I was only tangentially aware of (although all of my close friends knew about it and eventually told me, near the end of the school year.)

I can now drink rum again in the context of tropical drinks. I also had some Trinidadian rum in graduate school that a colleague of mine brought from home that was outstanding, much better than Bacardi for instance.

Anyway, beer is still my favorite alcoholic beverage, but close seconds are single malt and Drambuie. It's my Scottish heritage, I suppose. It occured to me looking at your list that I actually will drink all of the liquors you mentioned. About the only things I avoid are those stupid yuppie malt beverages, or their ancestor the wine cooler.

Not that I'm a lush or anything, I really don't drink much at all anymore. Just when I'm at a conference.

Re: Ah, rum

Oh yeah, I don't really like Jack Daniels (tastes like lighter fluid to me) but Knob Creek is truly sublime.

Rum was my big mistake, and it's been a long road to recovery. I managed to make up with Rum after the incident in high school that left me lying in the back of an SUV crying for a goth to hug me again just in time to end up barfing from it in college.

WMNJ party, I was bartending, friends of mine convinced me to really prove that I could drink. I downed multiple double shots of rum, butter liqueur, and crème de menthe. Stupid, eh? Finally, I staggered back to Riker and managed to think coherently enough to know that I should go to the public bathroom... which I covered in gnocchi.

This party, I shall attempt to woo rum again. We've been friendly over the past few years, but only through exchanged emails and phone calls.

Hmm Black Vodka. Interesting. The drink of vampires. haha.

Ok, so there's a bar in State College, PA called Mad Mex. Its obviously got a mexican theme to it. Well, from the hours of 11:00 pm to 1:00 am, they have margarita's half off, bringing the price to $5. Their margaritas are "Big-ass margaritas." "Big-ass" means 22 oz. They claim to have anywhere from 9 to 11 shots of alcohol contained within those 22 ounces. Well, my friend Bill and I were driving to state college from here and meeting friends up there. WE got to State College close to midnight. They had been drinking before us. Well, I had less than an hour to finish my margarita. We also did a round of tequila shots on the side. Needless to say, I didn't make it through the night. The End.

Yeah, so far the voting is supporting my tequila theory.
madolan From: madolan Date: October 7th, 2003 09:31 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Mine is a simple and ages-old tale, compounded by my naivete and gender.

My 21st birthday was spent at a local goth-industrial nightclub called The Inferno. Tequila shots seemed to be the drink of the evening, and everyone in the club seemed to have an interest in buying me one. I posit that this was largely due to my gender and choice of clothing. For every oontz, for every low goth moan, for every Nine Inch Nails track, there was a shot of tequila.

The next day, nursing my first hangover, my parents drove me to Chicago for a fancy dinner. They chose a nouvelle Mexican restaurant and proceeded to buy me margaritas.

Vomitous did not ensue, for I'm a wily drinker, but me and tequila weren't on speaking terms for four years. We've reestablished our friendship, and often enjoy a rowdy evening out together, loudly telling the masses of our long-ago misunderstanding.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: October 7th, 2003 03:01 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
That sounds like a harsh and hardcore introduction to tequila.

It seems like so many people have insane 21st birthday stories, I got it out of my system before that... and spent my 21st birthday quietly with a few friends at the campus bar having a couple of drinks... Somehow I feel like I've missed out on an American tradition, like going to the prom.

The Inferno, eh?

Ellen Henry gave me my first taste of tequila. Same party I was telling you about. I ended up going through quite a bit of it that night.

Yeah, I was pretty much bored with drinking by the time I was 21. Had a great party anyway, though.

uhh

tequila made me ralph on khephra and kingfox

therefore, i hate tequila, because it makes me barf on cool people with long blonde hair and leather jackets that travel to the Daze in LaCrosse, WI from one coast or the other of this fine country


SHAME ON YOU TEQUILA

True. My arm still feels shame just thinking about it, as I'm sure khephra's foot does.
thelastbandito From: thelastbandito Date: October 7th, 2003 02:02 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I have a strange relationship with alcohol.

I drink to get drunk. Meaning, I don't really care what's coming across my palate. I've ralphed on a few occaisions, mostly from many different liqours.

I really don't like the 'kick' of alcohol, you know that distinctive taste that you can immediately discern that 'this is a beverage that consumed in quantity will make you do TEH FUNNAY SHTI!'.

That being said, there are a few things I will drink for taste, and in no particular order.

Midori Sours
Jagermeister and Redbull
Winecoolers/Yuppie Malts
Mudslides
Flaming Dr. Peppers
Irish Car Bombs
Pina Coladas
Rum and Vanilla Coke
Various Drinks that contain Sweet & Sour Mix w/ some sort of Citrus or Tart (cranberry) juice.


Other than that. I'll drink it no matter what it is usually, I'm not discriminatory in my tastes, because the taste is secondary, to the primary goal of a feeling of euphoria and well being.

Chances are I've had some of the liqour in my stomach on the few occaisioned that I've vomited, because when I do vomit, it's more to the tone of drinking many various mixed drinks and then deciding whoops, one to many.

Rather than fight some hangovers and extreme drunken blackouts, I have forced myself into alcohol bulemia on some occaisions.

As for a favorite liqour. I guess I'd have to say Jagermeister.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: October 7th, 2003 03:07 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Jägermeister! My current roomie was a big fan of the liquor senior year of college.

The first time I met Tresspassor, he microwaved Jägermeister, claiming that it would hit his bloodstream faster that way.

I've never had a Jägermeister and Red Bull before. Red Bull and vodka is one of my favorite drinks, I'll have to give that mix a try as well. The black vodka I got today has a Black Bull mix suggestion on the tag attached to it, which I plan on making soon.
kujawski From: kujawski Date: October 8th, 2003 05:45 am (UTC) (Hard link)

Yup

What Thelastbandito said goes for me. Ask him about the time I had the mason jar full of lemonade and all kinds of alcohol. I had just that one drink... no wait... we downed a bottle fo jagermeister first... ok... i had just one half bottle (big size) of jagermeister and a giant mason jar of that lemonade shit. I, like he, am an EXPERIENCED DRUNK, so I just went to the mexican food shop across the street (there's ALWAYS a mexican food shop across the street in san diego, god bless it), and then went and passed out in his car. Total time in club : 20-25 minutes top. Then I woke up outside another club, where i had apparently been driven. it was 3 AM, so i was wondering where my cohort had gone. He had been puking in the club. Which somehow netted him a chick. What the fuck ever. Lucky bastard.
LOL... thelastbandito calls his puke a technicolor yawn.
That's the ramble.

Technicolor yawn

I've heard that line before, priceless.

Losing time and blacking out is something that's never happened to me. Friends of mine get that all the time, I could never handle it. Of course, if I lost time, I'd wake up with a tub full of fresh soap next to an unconscious Marla Singer.

aftershock

what is aftershock? I think it's cinnamon schnapps, but I'm not positive...

Nasty, nasty stuff. Think liquified "fireball" candies.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: October 8th, 2003 07:28 am (UTC) (Hard link)

Aftershock!

One of my first parties at my father's house, I drank plenty of Aftershock. Yeah, it's similar to cinnamon schnapps, but with the crystals on the bottom. I ate those like rock candy, and ended up in my room attempting to score with an ex before I knew it. Not knowing how much alcohol was in the candies, I got utterly smashed, and lost control of the gathering.
From: graye Date: October 7th, 2003 04:20 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

I had a nasty fight with Captain Morgan once, and lost horribly. That man knows how to rumble, let me tell you.


Fortunately, it precipitated projectile vomit on somebody's deck. That was funny.


And somebody else cleaned it up!


Hooray for wingmen
kingfox From: kingfox Date: October 8th, 2003 07:30 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Heheh... at my very first party at my father's house, my current roomie and a friend of ours ended up puking all over the rear deck and rose garden. We hosed them both for an hour, trying to remove evidence of a gathering.

Err, both the deck and the rose garden, not both as in my roomie Pete and our friend Leo.

I had an awful experience with Gin, but unlike weaklings, I still can't be mad at my baby.

After gin, I hooked up with a girl in front of all my friends and then threw up from Dick hitting Ian in the face with a phone to the opening chords of "I Believe (If I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever)." and that's a long while.
From: csmole Date: October 8th, 2003 12:35 am (UTC) (Hard link)
I'm normally a fan of any whiskey/whisky you put in front of me, and beer and associates (ie, Guinness.)

I can't stand that overwhelming molasses smell of dark rum, that kills me. The taste, fine. The smell, barf city. It's like maple syrup for me. I love the taste, but I have to hold my nose, because the smell involuntarily triggers my gag reflex. I've never been able to get into the taste of wine or sherry, either, but that's just a taste issue, not a barfing one.

HOWEVER. My true arch-enemy is Southern Comfort. I -never- fail to barf after it, no matter how little I consume. And it seems to bring up the most horrible acidic barf, too, the type that could peel paint off walls if I aimed correctly. It is the DEVIL'S LIQUID.

Mind you, Ta-kill-ya is the only drink that's made me have to fuck a bar matron with a tattoo of Simon Le Bon on her arse in the back room of the bar, though, when we (as a band) couldn't cover our 4-figure bar tab. *shrugs* So maybe I should stay away from that, too.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: October 8th, 2003 07:33 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Wow. You've certainly got some interesting stories.

So, did the band take turns, or were you the designated form of payment? And how was it determined that you were payment, drawing straws or her choice?
From: csmole Date: October 8th, 2003 08:11 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Well...

I was sort of the default choice, being that the four other members of my band at the time were all gay, and this bar matron told us in no uncertain that she was, y'know, staunchly straight.

You see, we had quite an entourage that night, and somehow they had gotten through their heads that the entourage was covered under the band rider (which was true), but then they seemed to mistakenly believe was unlimited. THUS, they drank such fine liquors as Johnny Walker Blue and a number of Single Malt scotches, on our dime. Not to mention, we as a band packed it away pretty hard that night, too, as one of the members had to go in for surgery next day and we knew we wouldn't play again for a while (we still haven't reconvened, either.)

So, we soon went through the 800 bucks gig pay, our 200 dollar rider, and far, far beyond. After scrounging through our wallets and handing over everything in, we were still pretty short, so the matron, who as you can imagine by the star tattoo had a certain number of years on her, asked us something like, "So, whatcha gonna do now?"

I did what I had to.
From: somthinravenous Date: October 8th, 2003 08:31 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: Well...

You dirty, dirty boy.
Did she concider what you had to offer as payment enough and furthermore did you have a good shrink session afterwards?

Fiend!

I was sitting drinking a nice glass of Jameson's. After taking a rather large swig, I began to choke (I don't remember if I coughed or laughed but the end result was the same) With no where else to go the whiskey came out my nose. the burning sensation combined with the pain and shock made me sick. For the most part I felt better after vomitting except for the burning and loss of my sense of smell for the next few hours. My brother likes to joke that it did clear up my chronic sinusitis. It's really the smell that gets to me more than drinking it.
damnitnicole From: damnitnicole Date: March 23rd, 2005 10:42 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Question 1 = Everclear. Too many of the few regrets I have about things I actually did (versus regrets about NOT having done things) happened because of more Everclear than anyone my size... or possibly your size... sould reasonably consume.

2 = Beer causes me problems with yeast. I could probably have a beer if I wanted to, with no incident, but I don't happen to want to. So far, the only wine besides real meade that I'll drink is this apparently not-so-great port that someone brought to a party once. Ok, I like Boone's strawberry and MD 20/20 in any of the red falvors, but those hardly count.
I'm sure there's other stuff I dislike strongly enough to warrant mention, but I can't think of what.

3 = Amaretto, (real) meade, good rum, berenjaeger. Honorable mentions go to Jack Daniels and vodka in general- I used to drink themm both like water, during different phases of my teen years; I'm not so into either anymore.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: March 23rd, 2005 11:02 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
At a johnstevensaul party, he once asked me to help him forget with a drink. He had bragged about his tolerance for some time before this, so I gave him tons of Everclear. That was a scary drink.

I consider myself an open-minded straight guy who hasn't met a male he was attracted to, but at johnstevensaul parties, I've ended up kissing more guys than girls most of the time. Though at least I've also usually seen far more of my female friends than I would have otherwise...

I enjoy mead, I haven't had any in years.
