Maybe I took it easy cause I didn't really get drunk....although I was feeling it to say the least.

Just "feeling it" is the best intoxication. You avoid the idiotic decisions of drunkeness and the boring righteousness of sobriety. Well-played.

Make that last seven years, atleast where I come from.

Do this. Ordering something different everytime will make you appear an amateur and a cad.

I for one enjoy a double Jack on the rocks as my preferred drink, every bar has it and its simple.

This is untrue, at least in my case. On most Friday, Saturdays, and Sundays (and sometimes 2-3 days during the week) I'll drink wine all day at work, grab a beer before I leave work, and then at the bar I usually have at least one of each of the following: A beer, a mixed drink (not necessarily a cocktail but a gin and tonic or something), a shot of tequila, and scotch.

I have yet to have my stomach be fucked up from that.

My head, most certainly.

Bullcrap. I've never had issues with lots of different drinks. And I've been doing that with regularity. I have a friend who's been hanging out with me for the past few weekends who just turned 21 not long ago, so I've been taking it upon myself to introduce him to the cocktail world. I've made it a point to not repeat a single drink. Neither of us has ever had an issue. The only time I've had a stomach issue, it was due to quantity, not type. And if you think people are actually keeping track of what you drink each time and judging you based on it... Unless you're the guy who keeps ordering fruit daiquiris (or any other sweet shit that people would judge you for drinking as anything more than a one off), no one will care. Also, have you tried Evan Williams instead of the Jack? Aged longer, better flavor profile (IMO) and cheaper. And really, are you at a bar for simple? The entire point of such an establishment is that they stock loads of stuff and make all the random drinks so you don't have to. Bars are there so you can get your Harvey Wallbanger fix, because really, who wants to stock Galliano at home, or for trying scotches that you don't want to pay for without a taste, or for having those zombies that you just don't want to deal with making.

As someone who has done exhaustive field research (and actually, like, read a bit about the science) most of the myths about alcohol are just that. The bullshit about "mixing drinks" is stupid. All alcohol will mess you up the same because what we consume in any beverage is ethanol. Where the mixing shit comes from is when dudes do it they are usually drinking more than they normally would so of course they will get hungover. And the culprit is totally "mixing drinks".

There are other myths that should be busted and I can but that's the stupidest one and should be beaten back the most, if you ask me.

Another myth - that American light beers taste any different from each other (of course no one on here ever drinks American mass-market beer, no way). At the next party, do a blind taste test of Natty Light, Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Coors Light. Maybe add in Michelob Light - its taste is slightly different, but most people will still fuck it up. Watch all the aggro dudes swear that ____ tastes like shit, I can only drink _____ . Watch them all fail to guess a single beer right. I've begun to bet people now. It's easy money.

I've actually thought about starting an "alcohol myths" thread before. it would help dudes have better nights out/drunkenness.

Have someone order a four-horsemen shot for you. It's very strong and about $20. It'll probably be the first and only time you ever drink it.

There are differences in taste and texture. I can at least tell the difference between Bud and Miller- one is overly sweet and tasteless, one has flavor. Bad flavor. And is artificially carbonated to an even more stupid degree.

Coors tastes even more watery then bud. And I haven't even touched Natty Light on principle.

Flavorless liquor straight. What's the point again?

The taste test thing is fun with vodkas too. Very, very, very few people can tell real differences. Gray Goose has an excellent marketing department.

Bourbon, Jack, Cheap Scotch, and Tequila. Really? That's not strong. That's about the same strength, and has less volume, as the martinis and Manhattans the members here drink to unwind after work. And probably tastes worse, not that taste matters with shots. The point is just a fast increase in BAC.

If you want strong, somebody on Fark was describing a drink they had found in an old cocktail book. I forget the name now, but it was equal parts absinthe, gin, and brandy. Shaken and served as a standard 4 oz cocktail. As a sidenote, it apparently does not taste all that good. I guess there's are reason the classics are the classics and many other drinks are constrained to the dustbin of history.

Here's a tip for anybody interested in enjoying themselves while drinking: don't be a fratty douche who drinks just to get drunk. Enjoy the flavors. You won't find them anywhere else.
