We’ve all been there: you’re sitting in a bar, politely enjoying a beer with some friends when another patron walks by toting some insane technicolored cocktail. As he or she stumbles back to their seat, your eyes water from the immense scent of alcohol emanating from said beverage. If the table next to you is covered in these potations, get ready – the room is about to get rowdy. For reference, here are a few examples.
The AMF, otherwise known as the Adios Motherf*cker, is a deadly concoction that has only one purpose, knocking its host into next week. While the bright blue color alone should be enough to make most customers wary, the AMF contains five types of booze that are sure to ruin any plans you had for the following day. Containing vodka, rum, tequila, gin, and blue curaçao, amongst other sugary additives, this drink will have you saying adios to sobriety after your first couple of sips.
Long Island Iced Tea
A country club alcoholic’s best friend, the Long Island Iced Tea is sure to wreck your swing on the back nine. Made with vodka, rum, tequila, triple sec, lemon juice, and cola, this strong and tasty beverage will have you seeing double. In appearance, they look just like a delicious ice tea, but a few Long Islands on a hot day can do some serious damage if the drinker isn’t careful.
Hillbilly Punch is what moonshiners drink on the weekends. When moonshine is amiss, Hillbilly Punch is made with peach schnapps, amaretto, cranberry juice, and lemon-lime soda. Living up to its name, this libation is classically served in a mason jar. A few too many of these suckers and you’ll be in the parking lot howling at the moon.
Ah yes, the Vodka Redbull. The cocaine of alcoholic beverages. While simple to create, these puppies pack a punch. One is fine. Two are okay. Three or more strong Vodka Redbulls and you’re on a ride that’s bound to last until daybreak.
For German-fearing individuals attempting to get absolutely smashed, Jäger Bombs are a treacherous flavor combo that are bound to get the whole party involved. In practice, a Jäger Bomb is a shot of Jäger dropped into a beer or Redbull and chugged to completion. These things are often drank in competition and repetition, usually to the dismay of surrounding bar patrons.
Not quite a single drink, but you get the idea. Many of us are all too familiar with the damage Bottomless Mimosas can cause. Rowdy brunchgoers only have two courses of action after a few rounds of these: hit the hay and concede to a day remiss of productivity, or keep the booze train going and knock ‘em back until one’s vision begins to blur.
Anything sipped out of a fishbowl is a recipe for provocative dancing and a violent hangover. Next time you see someone drinking out of a booze-filled aquarium, simply count the minutes until his or her conversational volume skyrockets. These blackout vessels may look enticing, but consumer beware – your head will be swimming as the tiny umbrella floats to the bottom of your bowl.
