    Hello,

    My wife and I were visiting cousins in Canada early this week. I alone, less about 6 shots, drank the remainder of the 750ml bottle over the course of the evening.

    How many have done this or similar? Is it worrisome?

    I've never drank close to so much vodka in one sitting before.


    What was the hangover like?

    I was mildly drunk when I woke, and had a pleasant buzz until about 10am. Then came the fun. By noon I was anxious, nauseous and very irritable.

    Worried? Please. I used to put back a fifth of bourbon in a single night of debauchery. A 1.75L would rarely last me a full weekend. 750mL of vodka is like drinking a bottle of water!

    Welcome to puberty. When you reach manhood, you should be putting down a fifth of vodka in an hour. GG gets more shit than it should here. But I drink it, and in Cali, you can get it for around $25 on sale which is good. I like the pear flavor, but tend to stick to original. Ketel One sux. It's all about Chopin or Svedka.

    I don't understand how you think Ketel One sucks when it's very similar to Chopin

    When you become an actual man, there is no need to impress other idiots by drinking until someone pukes because you are no longer an insecure child.

    ^^^Dunno. I just don't like the flavor as much, especially when chilled. I find Ketel One to be heavier, if that's a way to describe it, like more syrupy. Also, where I live, it is more expensive.

    That's true too. The last time I puked because of alcohol must've been 5 years ago or more.

    Guys, don't argue over what you think tastes better. Taste is totally subjective.

    Pick on the guidos in that picture instead. [​IMG]

    A 26er is nice to get drunk off in a couple of hours, but a whole evening it's just for fun. This is NOT post worthy.

    Vodka is overrated. Don't really remember when I've had any in the past year.

    Whiskey neat, maybe good tequila, or gin and soda. Done.

    of course everybody has their own palate, I was just curious as to why cheessus liked one but disliked the other. Viscosity is legit, though I haven't done an A to B comparison myself. Also, if you freeze vodka, it will become much more dense, like a syrup, so perhaps this came in to play.

    Grey Goose is a decent, albeit overpriced vodka. My favourite is Russky Standart (any edition would do).

    Absolut and Finlandia would do, as well..

    It should be chilled and consumed neat. That's that
