10. See, now that was a very coherent answer.
I don't think you're very fucked up at all.

If you were, your response would be closer to this:

6. Cranerry juice......leave the fruit alone.
A twist of lime I can understand, but.....any more and it is alcohol abuse. Stop abusing your alcohol. cheers

3. Vodka and KoolAid? Can I do that?
I found some KoolAid packets, and I've got this vodka here...it's not very good vodka. But it is 50% proof.

He said you feel obviously drunk but you can function at a level nearly sober.

Then a bottle of something better. Like the host at Cana, I save the best for last.

I switched to Colt 45 after a while.

41. Here is the 411 on 211
Steel Reserve 211
Alcohol Content: 8.1%
AKA: Chrome, Steely Eye
Rep: Strong enough for a homey, but made sweet for the freaks.
As youd expect with the high-alcohol content, this Texan fatboy is quite sweet, with a spicy undertone. Champagne carbonation and a crisp aftertaste make it perfect for crackin forties with naughty freaks. The swill (the warmer, final third of the forty) leans toward the medicine cabinet, so tip it fast and furious.
Aesthetics: The post-industrial label will not only appeal to Gen Xers on the bum, it also informs them this premium malt liquor was brewed for almost an entire month. There is even more self-congratulatory text on the inside of the label, suitable for a little light post-swill reading.
Trivia: Contrary to popular belief, the 211 tag isnt a reference to the California penal code for robbery, but rather a nod to the medieval symbol for steel.

Flava: 7
Street Cred: 7
Power: 9

50. I Avoid Steel Reserve
I got a major-league headache the only time I drunk it.

I did like Chinese beer, though, on my trip over Christmas. Light, sweet, and no hangover.

That is my third favorite gin. Tangueray 10 and then Tangueray. Bombay is really my second best because I find it diferent but equal to Tangueray. Good choice. Well done.
