    Eat food - greasy food is good, slows absorption of the alcohol.
    Drink water - until urine runs clear and drink water throughout the night.

    Old adage = beer before liquor, never sicker; liquor before beer, in the clear (takes time for alcohol that you drink to enter your system so start hard and ease up later)

    21 drinks is standard on your 21st. So being an Irish bar..

    1. Guiness Stout - basically food
    2. Martini - not Irish but ya gotta
    3. Bushmills - Irish whisky
    4. Middleton "
    5. Redbreast "
    6. Connemara "
    7. Jameson "
    8. Black Bush "
    9. Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout - need some food after all those Irish whiskys
    10. Murphys Stout - more stouty food
    11,12. Irish car bomb - actually 2 drink equivalents here and by now you're so drunk you're promising to die for Ireland
    13. Jaeger bomb - for energy in the second half
    14. Vodka Red Bull - to prevent passing out
    15,16. Mind Eraser - delicious and 2 drink equivalents
    17. Harp - Irish lager, time to switch to beer
    18. Murphys - Irish red
    19. Smithwicks - Irish ale
    20. O'Douls - nonalcoholic because you are at 0.3 BAC, might be Irish
    21. Bloody Mary - some rehydration

    Feel free to print out this handy guide and take it to the bar.

    Doing that list is a great way to have your relatives posting your old clothes in the marketplace forum after you die from alcohol poisoning.

    I've tasted alcohol obviously lol, but never "drank" before. The most I've ever had at once was a taste of SoCo, a taste of everclear, and a taste of smirnoff, and when i say taste that's only like, one little swig.

    Anyway, what kind of Jameson would be best? It's an Irish pub, and I know they've got the Redbreast, 12 year, and 18 yr, hell they may even have the Middleton.


    Oh, I love Jamie's 18, but Jamie's 12 and water is just great. And in an Irish pub how can you go wrong? Redbreast is a little too bold for a virgeen, but Jamie's is really perfect.

    Middleton just doesn't do it for me, though some swear by the stuff.

    Yeah Jameson 12 is a great "bar" whiskey. I tend to get that when I go out to bars (infrequent considering I don't have a fake).

    One thing you'll be drinking all night: tequila. Try not to mix, but you likely won't have a choice. I wouldn't go with any whiskey/scotch/bourbon on your 1st night out. Do try lots of beer, and the shots will come naturally. Don't think about it, because it won't make a difference. You'll get wasted...really wasted. Just drink, and puke, and drink, and puke--you get the idea. Don't die.

    Beer is really an acquired taste; I still don't like it.
    I'm a whiskey guy myself, on the rocks.
    Japanese Whiskey, Scotch, American.. all good - Canadian whiskey is crap imo.. esp. crown royale.

    Tequila is GREAT. It goes down so smooth and you don't really feel it until later.

    If you want easy to drink hard stuff I'd go Vodka, Tequila and then Whiskey.

    Connemara Cask Strength (ca s k not cack)

    Taste: A very strong aggressive start with an enormous peat surge in the middle. Then fireworks of aromas explode in your mouth (fruits, spices, pepper, chocolate) uniting with the peat to give a truly complex taste.
    Finish: Astonishingly long finish with peat clinging to every crevice in the mouth while remaining sweet and glorious.

    Sweet dreams.

    Wait, that can't be our boy.

    If it's an Irish pub, see if you can't get your hands on the tried 'n' true car bombs. Like a boilermaker... only yummier and less PC.

    I had a friend like you too. He didn't go out and get sloshed for the first time til a year or two ago at the age of 24 or so. He drank half a handle of gin, said, hmmm I don't feel anything. Then proceeded to a bar where he polished off some long islands. 2 hours later he ended up in the emergency room.

    The alcohol WILL hit you, have a beer first. I had 2-3 pints of beer on Friday and I was super hungover yesterday because I never drink anymore, and this is from a guy who used to be able kill a bottle of bourbon on a Tuesday by himself.

    Given this is an Irish bar, make you first drink a stout!

    Drink beer. Nothing stronger. Trust me. If you start with GT's and stuff and like them, after a couple you'll start downing them like Coca Cola. And when you're getting drunk and it feels good, you'll think that you'll feel twice that great when you drink double the amount. When you realize that's not going to happen it is way too late.

    I started my long and illustrious drinking career with vodka shots. Bad idea. Really bad.

    First time I got drunk I pounded a glass of vodka at my grandma's house since my parents didn't drink. I was fine for like 30 minutes until I puked all over her house while she slept and pissed all over her bathroom. *sigh*

    good luck

    you might find you don't like beer on the first try, some don't.

    try wiskey sours, not to girly, but everybody likes them.

    I wouldn't try anything too expensive in the wiskey depeartment, it is simply a waste is you don't know what you are drinking yet.

    when I first drank, I drank wild turkey and coke - tastes good and packs a punch. wouldn't touch it now, but it is a very good starter drink.

    have fun and keep safe

    First time I ever got smashed I was about 21, living with the current missus. I was doing guiness and vodka shots for as many hours as I can remember. Everything was fine and I walked to the bar's restroom. All of a sudden it felt like someone hit me over the head with a bat. I could barely stand and I start puking in the trash can. I walk out of the bathroom, puke in another trash can. My friends put me in a cab, I barely get home. I manage to stumble in, holding onto the walls, need to run to the bathroom to puke and do a number 2. I was so effed up that I could not even wipe so my wife had to do that. First and last time I was ever truly bombed. Have a good time kwilkinson.
