    Cannot drink anything cheaper than this. My freshman year of college I would go through two 1.75 liters of Kentucky Deluxe plus probably a case of keystone, cannot drink this stuff anymore without throwing up. This is generally what I drink because it is still cheap to me and I'm still in college.
    Seagrams Vodka $20-20
    Rebel Yell $25
    Gorgons Gin $20
    All 1.75 Liters

    Cheapest beer:
    PBR, Miller High Life

    rums tend to drink very well in the 10-20 dollar range. Rum is a peasants spirit
    Peasants ftw! Actually, while fcuknu is obviously a fan, I think that dollar-for-dollar, Havana Club is one of the best spirits you can buy (when you're outside of the states). £15 for a fifth is a great deal. I love sipping it with ice, or occasionally neat. After a few sips it starts to taste like sugar -- not the case with other rums in that price-range. When I was in Africa, I tried Waragi Gin, from Uganda. It was quite a surprise -- you can get Gordon's over there, but Waragi is dirt cheap -- maybe $3 for a pint, in a club or bar (this includes 1 bottle of tonic/soda -- you order it, and they just give you the whole pint of liquor, a bottle of soda, and a glass of ice). One of the cleanest gins I've had -- not a single hangover in several weeks of hard drinking there for me.

    i am pretty sure bartok [sp?] vodka, or whatever convenience/grocery/neighborhood liquor stores sell for cheap, like what 6 bucks a liter. mix it was can Orange Juice and you're alright.

    i hate vodka, but its drinkable and cheap.

    i had drank scotch there for a few months on in a bit back. i had johny walker or however you spell it and i've had the cheapest. i like scoresby quite a bit for being a cheap brew. for beer, i'm for budweiser or bud light. note though, guinness or murphy's on tap is the greatest brew known to man. also, as far as rum, i didn't drink captain morgan for entirely too long, i cut my budget down to admiral nelson. i went through 2 of those 1.75L bottles in 2 weeks by myself. the vanilla flavor will definitely get nasty. the vanilla is over the top in my opinion.

    For vodka, cheapest drinkable would be Svedka.
    For beer: Miller Light
    For Rum: Admiral Nelson [I am not a rum guy and for me it's the same as Cap. I rarely drink it so I don't care]

    For Gin: Tanqueray

    I dunno if this qualifies but I love SoCo. Way better than crown in my opinion.

    I really dont see how ppl can drink Natty Light (its basically water). I like zigenbock's its kinda like a off brand of Shiner Bocks. Plus they have $1 Zigenbocks all day everyday and the local pub [​IMG]

    Approx Price for a fifth

    Vodka - Svedka 14, Tito's Handmade 20 (best period) [don't ever buy Grey Goose or Belvedere]
    Rye Whiskey - Old Overholt 13
    Rum - Flor De Cana Gold 14 (much better than Bacardi)
    Gin - Gordons 8 (tonics only, at least it tastes like gin, unlike New Amsterdam shit), otherwise buy premium
    Tequila - El Jimador 25 (cheapest 100% agave, everything else is tequila-flavored rum)

    Beer - Good ole Budweiser in a bottle

    Gvori vodka. $25 for 1.75L

    +1. Bought a handle of this for a party a few weeks back. Surprised me. Bought it at the suggestion of a guy working at this Liquor Store on the HIll.

    On a serious note, Bud Light for beer...


    *shiver*! I don't see how this part can be taken serious. No offense intended, I know it already is one of the better ones over there =).

    I can highly recommend any white wine (only dry) from the region of Pillnitz in Germany for a warm summer evening. Usually a decent bottle can be found for under 20euros.

    This stuff is great, I hear it's hard to find outside of KY though. Ancient Ancient Age 10 Year, not to be confused with the 10 star. It's like $15 a bottle. From Buffalo Trace distillery. [​IMG] For $10 more, Evan Williams Single Barrel is really nice.

    So I am sitting here drinking an $18 bottle of Rittenhouse 100 Rye again, and to be honest, I love it as much as I like some of the other whiskeys almost twice its price. Good shit. What's your favorite cheapie bottle that you can sip and enjoy and never feel like you're settling for crap?
    $18 a bottle cheap? Hell, $18 a handle is expensive for me.
    I don't drink much in the cheap booze category, but I guess if I was forced, it'd be George Dickel No. 8 or Old Forrester.
    In all seriousness, you prefer the Dickel No. 8 over 12? I always thought the 8 tasted a little younger.
    This stuff is great, I hear it's hard to find outside of KY though. Ancient Ancient Age 10 Year, not to be confused with the 10 star.
    Actually a very decent whiskey. While it definitely tastes younger and has some heat, the 10 Star is not great, but is very good for the price. Had some of the 10 Year in Louisville while visiting a (now) crazy bitch ex's family.

    Bought some Tito's per your suggestion. Good tasting stuff. Something in it makes me slur my speech and walk wobbly.
