Worst alcoholic drink you've ever tried [re: ]  

I'm fairly convinced that at some point or other every single person here will have tried some scummy cocktail, drink or beverage at either a bar or a party that was without a doubt the most unpleasantly disgusting thing they'd ever had the misfortune to sample. So tell me, what was it and how would you describe the taste.

As a borderline alcoholic I've had horrible noxious drinks, but my specialty is beer. Now sometimes it's just the case that the lines in the pub haven't been cleaned, or it's an old cask, or it's not been put down right... but I've tried "55 not out" by the Northumberland Brewery on several occasions and the best way to describe it would be something like beer with cigarettes stubbed out into and old man flem floating on top. When you drink it, your first reaction is to gurn, and then make desperate choking noises whilst you try to pound your chest and make it go down. Vile stuff that should only be used to clear drains.

Like a Nun on the Run, I'm terrible fun.

Re: Worst alcoholic drink you've ever tried new [re: Persilot]  

I'm not alcoholic, but during one Christmas season about five years ago I found myself without money or alcohol. However, I had a bottle of antifreeze in the basement and I drank that. It tasted awful, but I did get by on it. Later, I persuaded my sister to lend me some money for a real bottle.

Someone gave me a glass of British sherry once and it was utterly disgusting

I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.

I've had some American light beers that are quite literally like drinking a frosty glass of piss.

I'm not a drinker, but I once sampled some limoncello that made my eyes burn for a couple of minutes.

Someone told me that you should never try Guinness in the UK - because that's where they send their worst stuff. Is that true?

"Cherry Wheat" is an evil phrase new [re: schizophrenic]  

In reply to:

See, now I would imagine piss to have some flavor to it, whereas Keystone Light just tastes like seltzer with a slight tinge of ass. What I can't figure out is why they bother spending money on idiotic ad campaigns - it's not like anyone goes to the liquor store with the plan of purchasing it. Its only purpose is to round out the overall volume of booze at a shitty house party, where it will be drunk at room temperature straight out of the suitcase. The best and only way to advertise a product like that is to stack it to the ceiling at 9 bucks a 30-pack and let student poverty do the rest.

Anyway, my worst drink ever was at an otherwise lovely wedding in Wisconsin. This was during the pre-ceremony cocktail hour, and seeing a friend of mine sipping on a Martini, I decided to order a Manhattan. The bartender paused for a second, then filled a highball glass with ice, vodka, and a generous splash of sweet vermouth.

I neither had the heart to tell him, nor to finish it. Blech.

I don't walk it like I talk it cause I run it

I don't drink alcohol, but a while back I tried a Finnish christmas beer (don't remember the brand) which was absolutely the worst drink I've ever had, alcoholic or otherwise. And getting the vile taste out of my mouth was quite a challenge.

Mad Dog and Englishmen new [re: Persilot]  

I couldn't specify the worst alcoholic drink as such but rest assured there's been many, particularly from those days of drinking myself into oblivion and waking up on industrial wasteland. A drink such as Gold Label Barley Wine was a typical choice back in the day, a pungent, sickly brew that, when imbibed in copious amounts, served as a tattered, vomit-stained comfort blanket to any nihilistic drinker with serious aspirations of alcoholic grandeur. Absolutely hideous stuff it was and yet somehow strangely alluring. A bit like Ann Widdecombe on Strictly Come Dancing.

However, as a fellow real ale aficionado, by far the worst alcoholic drinks are to be found in those ubiquitous patterned-carpeted pubs, Holiday Inn's, Harvester restaurants and the like that serve, on tap, the generic cold slop that is Worthington and John Smith Bitter. For they are guilty, along with the establishments that house them, of that most undesirable of traits: blandness. In fact, the gum-receding, blind-inducing Gold Label, Special Brew and Diamond White Snakebites and all the other shite that I used to drink with predictably Hogarthian results, are much more preferable and taste of amber nectar in comparison.

All I know is blue kamikazes make your shit turn green the next day (i've heard this from multiple people).

Light lagers do taste like frosted piss. Then again, PBR (pabst blue ribbon) tastes like seltzer water with a hint of hops.

Try going to my friend's blog... he rates whatever alcohol he drinks: http://hittingthebottle.tumblr.com/

Jäger-bombing new [re: Persilot]  

Jägermeister.

There's also some Swedish liquor, I can't remember the name of, that makes me gag. We use to keep it in the freezer and whenever me and the siblings would get together we'd swig at it and be like "Oh yeah I'm Swedish!"

I'd love to try to understand what that was. What kind? Vodka? Flavored vodka? Liqueur?

In search of duty-free beer new [re: Emil]  

Aquavit!

I had totally blocked the name from my memory! Don't feel insulted, Emil. Last time I had it was when my Swedish dad died. He was actually more of a beer guy, himself. When we celebrated his death we had aquavit and a real smörgåsbord of pickled herring, rotmos, frestelse, boiled egg with tubed caviar, and many other white-colored foods. My memories for aquavit are fond, but my stomach isn't! My dad's peeps were from Östersund.

Oh, Östersund, that's not so far from my quarters! (OK, it takes 4 hours to drive...) Small world.
I must say I rarely drink that stuff.. I'm not so big on flavored vodka. (Don't drink much at all these days.) But your smörgåsbord sounds nice, makes me realize I should have lunch now.

silly swedes new [re: ohramona]  

and by the way, the Swedish word for duty-free is tax-free. Like that, in English. (Alt,. taxfree or tax free.)
Jimi Hendrix even covered a song by Hansson & Karlsson with that title.

For someone who rarely drinks, I have posted a lot in this thread now.
