What Is Some VERY GOOD tasting Alcohol?

baller4lyfeballer4lyfe Registered User Posts: 1,214 Senior Member
I was wondering if there is any *real good* tasting alcohol (like a normal kiwi juce drink for instance) out there that you'd recommend and that you can buy at a local thrift store.

Anything with a sweet, very good, and not overpowering taste, or is all alcohol going to taste bad and overpowering?

    local thrift store? lol
    i feel weird posting this, but i'm not a drunkard lol i do drink sometimes but i'm also #1 in my class so don't shoot me.
    well personally, i like green apple smirnoffs for straight drinks/beer, but for mixed drinks i like basically any juice mixed with vodka, usually red gatorade or pineapple juice.
    i doubt you'll find alcohol that tastes "really good" because i feel that everything i've tried has a bit of a bitter taste, but it's not that bad, definitely not overpowering, and you don't even notice it after a while.
    someone else offer a suggestion so i'm not the only one?

    The fruit flavored Bacardi and Smirnoff drinks are tasty - kind of like Jolly Ranchers mixed with Sprite. My dad bought some for new years - it's not strong at all. Captain Morgan's spiced rum also isn't bad. I don't really drink much at all (and when I do it's usually mixed drinks), but that's my take.

    Girly (those fruity ones) alcohol is bad and insidious. If you want good tasting stuff, pick wine, but not the cheap kind. If you really want sweet stuff that's good, take ice wine, or better yet, ice cider (cidre de glace). No you won't find them at the thrift store, and, they aren't cheap either, but oh so good.

    PS: don't ever buy alcohol from a corner*/thrift store.

    *unless it's beer, but it better be real beer.

    Don't buy some cheap drink mix. Besides, diluting your vodka with sugar and fruit-flavoring is wimpy. Drink it straight like a man.

    If you don't like the taste of hard alcohol, get wine or beer. Preferably Heineken or Carlsberg.

    ^couldn't have said it better myself. even if you're a girl. mixers are so weak and alcho-pops are so evil. With real liquor, you can feel what you're doing to yourself.

    Just down your shots like a man. All you need to do is show up to parties with a Snapple bottle full of Jack and you're set.

    Tequila tastes awful.. but it does the trick

    I've always liked smirnoff but it's really weak (for me anyway).
  • IzzyJIzzyJ Registered User Posts: 3,271 Senior Member
    Tequila doesn't taste awful! Vodka tastes bad. But I do like the warmth effect.

    I personally find vodka to be the worst liquor ever.

    Rum and bourbon are my favorites, but lately I've been really tired of drinking liquor.

    So I've been mainly drinking beer and it's 10x better. There's so many different brands and flavors to try that you'll never get bored with it. It's something that you can actually enjoy drinking after acquiring a taste for it instead of cringing every time you take a shot of liquor.

    If you need a such a sweet flavor to overpower the alcohol then don't drink... those types are miserable in terms of calories and sugar.
