Nothing is more manly than doing whatever the fuck you want without caring what other people think of you.

Being yer buttday, people will be trying to pour all sorts of absurd drinks down yer muzzle; beware of mixing alcohol types. There is an old rhyme to go with this:

Beer before liquor, get drunk quicker. Liquor before beer, the end is near.
Absorption rates of different alcohols ...

-try to find a type of booze or drink you like, and stick with it.

-try rum and Coke Zero.

-try to take a water between alcoholic beverages. You pee a lot, yet I find the hydration mitigates the hangover.

If I am going to sample the hard stuff, I stick to the clear alcohols which pair well with the hydration philosophy: vodka waters, gin and tonics, et.al.

Lastly, pace yerself. You have many dog-years ahead of you to find what you like, or do not.

Mixing alcohol types is only unadviced because people can't math properly to figure out what the total alcohol volume after mixing is, sugar does not increase absorption rates of alcohol (carbonation does, however), sugarless carbonated beverages appear to increase alcohol absorption rate (Source ). The "hydration philosophy" is also sadly old wives takes in its usefulness, but the recipes are tried and true combinations and taste quite well.

I have tried finding studies or even just hearsay that backs up the parts I pointed out in your advice and came up empty-handed. I would love to see your sources because I can't find any. Everything I said is backed up by independent research from the last hundred years, you can literally just drop what I said into Google and find the basis for them online. I could not find a single source for anything I pointed out as wrong for you.

What? I always knew it as “Beer before liquor, never sicker. Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear.”

At this point, my arguments can only boil down to statistics vs results, all from third party sources, except I can say "yes, people don't even know how to drink water", but I'm chalking that up to personal experience.

So many people that I've witnessed, family and strangers alike, have choked on water that it isn't funny. I can only speculate that they took too big of a gulp; my family has so many straws that they partially fills a drawer (with cup lids being the other factor), even in my extended family. But, again, it's probably just my bad experiences that they have to choke on it before they get it right the second time around.

Choking on water is just water going to wrong hole :D
And besides, if you want too look at the worst case like you mentioned earlier.
We can either choke on water or die from water poisoning (yes, it's a thing, too much [clean] water can kill you) so we shouldn't drink water =/


Champagne! Drink it “repsonsibly”... the bubbles go straight to your head if you know what I’m saying ;)

+ lol at 21 being the legal drinking age in America, it’s 18 here in Australia lmao

Anyway happy birthday!! Have fun :3


I've always been a big fan of Jägermiester, damn good shit.
You can drink it as is or you can get yourself some Red Bull and make Jäg bombs.

Entirely possible; It is a rarified evening that I consume beer.

Alcohol makes you pee more; adding water brings you to the bonus round. I find that being dehydrated from the booze and urination makes my hangovers worse, and the water helps. Old wives tale or no, my head seems happier for it.

(also shhhh!, y'all are ruining the plan)


If I was 21, which I'm not, I'm 18, I would love to drink some vodka.


Being mainly a beer drinker (from Germany, who would have thought ^^), I'm not really into cocktails, but I can highly recommend Jäger Bull and Captain Coke - hazelnut shots are also awesome.
About the water discussion, I didn't have any bad experience with drinking water while being intoxicated yet, and I'm sorry for anyone having, although I can't think of any reasons why this would happen. So I have to agree with the side that recommends to drink a lot of water, especially at the point before you go to bed, that helps a lot to counter your next days hangover. That, and eating enough (ideally fatty) food before you go for it, and you should be good.
And finally one future advice, don't drink too much if you're in a phase where you really don't feel mentally well for whatever reasons. There's a high chance you'll end up being a emotional wreck/doing silly shit to yourself and the people around you/willingly tell them stuff you'd normally keep secret, just to regret that last night happened... at least in my experience. Well, just hope you won't reach the point where you need that advice ^^

Just drink some hand sanitizer! It probably tastes the same! Don’t drink hand sanitizer

Ooh, sticking hand sanitiser where the sun doesn't shine! Fun! Not!


TBH I've only drank vodka and beer in my life, I never tried any fancy drinks or whiskey, only the true Slavic beverages, like I should. Once I drank 10 shots of vodka and I didn't even feel like I was drunk, maybe because my stomach was full before that. I also drink when there is an occasion, like my friend's birthday or a family meeting.

Try to do or drink something you couldn't at home. Bars aren't worth the premium if you're only going to have basic drinks while also doing nothing else. Make it an experience that the alcohol only helps along, in theory. Drink as a statement of intent to enjoy some activity or event more than you normally might. For me, trying out new drinks to find the good ones is almost the entire point, like looking for good furry porn artists... Shocker.

I recommend you find your limits in a controlled environment, eventually, so you can learn to properly pace yourself. I go from "buzzed" (i.e., a little loose-lipped and uninhibited) to "tipsy" (i.e., some uncoordinated movements, walking is harder than sitting...) to "tipsier" (i.e., stumbling to the washroom, well-slurred speech, acting a little different) to "drunk" (i.e., need to think and act slower to master myself) to "wasted" (i.e., want to sleep). For most people, getting to drunk should be a commitment, not an accident--you need to work at it. The more alcohol I drink, the less I want to keep drinking.

Since I don't want what I call "strong alcohol taste", I try to avoid bitter beers and hard liquors that only have bite. I've not yet had a beer branded as "pale ale" that I liked. Likewise, the beer branded as "unfiltered" I've had so far tasted like the uncaptured dust from a full vacuum cleaner bag. Great palate cleanser though. My best experiences have been with stout beers (dark, roasted, stronger) and other stronger European beers like Innis & Gunn Rum Finish. If Chicago's bars were representative of America's, and they probably were, then the servers are likely to skip a beat when asked for "a stout" before saying "the only dark beer we have is Guinness". Lol. I did happen into Dragon's Milk, though.

On the hard liquor side, "no strong alcohol taste" leaves me with non-scotch whiskies and liqueurs. Smoothness is next to godliness, so rye whisky and nutty liqueurs are my go-to drinks, usually mixed with Pepsi although you "shouldn't" mix those liqueurs (fuck that). Again, ask for those after asking for stout to fluster your server haha. "We have Drambuie, Cointreau, and Jack Daniel's"... Liqueurs: hazelnut, butterscotch, chocolate. Rye: Seagram's, Canadian Club, Crown Royal, Gibson's, Forty Creek, (any). Nothing I just said was particularly adventurous, and all are relatively easy drinking.

How come Averna works in everything? Chocolate milkshake, 7up made black... I think I owe it to myself to try it with matcha green tea soon, because.

Thread: Turned 21. Had my first drink. Found by searching hazelnut. I'm too easy.

TL;DR recommendations bolded

It's possible to find that at a store in some areas.

I think I have had the Irish Whiskey version.


As far as mixed drinks go, I fell in love with the whiskey sour immediately after trying one. Long Island Iced Tea is good, but I don't recommend starting off with them as they are VERY strong. A lot stronger than they taste. Avoid wine and anything that's extremely sugary like the plague, it'll get you hungover as fuck. Like people have been suggesting, keep a gallon of water in your hotel room.

In most cases, if you wake up hungover, you'll forget about it after a shit and a shower. Oh yeah, if this is your first time drinking, prepare to feel like you just went binge eating at Taco Bell the morning after

I will say that the positive about having to wait an extra 3 years is ridiculously inexpensive alcohol. A bottle is insanely cheap in the states

Sugar doesn't affect hangovers, the amount of alcohol and unrelated impurities inside do. If you buy cheap wine be prepared to only get what you paid for: Trash.
Expensive wine is an experience worth savoring, not something to just chug to get drunk.

You have cheap alcohol in almost every other country as well, with the only exceptions being states that tax it to hell and back like Finland does. The only caveat is that the cheap stuff generally tastes bad and is impure, thus you have a higher risk byproducts in the stuff give you hangovers.


Pampero Anniversario Dominican Rum over ice. Good stuff.


Don't drink at all, that would be my recommendation to everyone.
I would rather smoke than drink, because at least it won't make me violent.

I remember that I had my first beer at 15, and I can still see the endless nights of headaches and vomiting in my memory. I haven't drank alcohol for at least 5 years now, and I'm pretty proud of that to be fair. Try to not get addicted to it, that would be the best. :)

But of course, if you don't drink too much, it will be alright. When I drink, I usually mix Cola with Three Sixty, it tastes alright.

Or you don't drink or smoke. That way you dont't hurt people around you through punches, and not through practically uncurable desieses either. Yay!

The worst thing is 3 in the morning driving the porcelain bus after a "good night out" then waking up at 3 in the afternoon wondering if anyone you knew was witness to what little behaviour you actually remember.
Then the next week, month new year's eve, Christmas party, you do it all over again...
I don't do that now but I'd rather not have done in the first place, like make a habit out of it.
That's what mystifies me though, because usually, the animal kingdom has evolved to avoid anything that makes them ill. :/
